“blizzard trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

We spent the weekend at the Affinia Dumont during the February blizzard. Location is excellent as it is on the same block as the Empire State Bldg. and only 2 blocks away from the subway. We were on a high floor (cost $7 more) and had the city view towards the new World Trade tower and could see the snow dropping.
Advantages: friendly staff, excellent price on a large (for NY city) room, excellent bed and pillows, complete kitchen
Disadvantages: harder to get a taxi on 34th st., cost to airport around $40-50
When in NY we would stay at this hotel again. One of the best deli's in NY is the 2nd Ave. Deli right behind the hotel on 33rd st.

Room Tip: go to the Affinia website to get best pricing. We selected the pre pay and once we did we had the op...

Would recommend this hotel highly. Friendly helpful staff starting with the doorman, front desk, concierge and housekeeping. Had two rooms, one on the 12th floor and the other on the 28th. The 28th had a great view of the Empire State building. I was there for the dog show and when we arrived in our room, it had a special set up for my pup. Clean and spacious, comfy beds. Loved having the kitchen. Had four people in our party and not a complaint among us. Easy walking to many sightseeing destinations and great restaurants.

Room Tip: The higher the floor, the better the views. Elevators were smooth, quiet and fast, so not a problem...

This was my third stay at the Affinia Dumont. We got a great rate, arrived early, and were upgraded to a suite. Minimal kitchen facilities, but large living room/work area and great storage in the bedroom. Super comfortable bed and linens. Friendly, warm, and helpful staff. Four instead of five stars because there was NO storage space in the bathroom (strange) and no doorman on duty to help with luggage or to hail a cab. Otherwise, great stay.

Room Tip: We had a sixth-floor room and had no problem with street noise on a weekend (Sat.) night.

We have always enjoyed staying here, and our stay has become quite regular, as my husband has regular treatments at the Cancer Center two doors down from the hotel. We love the friendly greeting of the staff, especially Stephanie, who remembers us, greets us with a gracious smile, and gives us great rooms! When we first stayed here, we needed some recommendations on nearby places to eat; the staff made some fine suggestions.The bellmen are always ready to help us with our luggage; Jubai was particularly gracious and kind. Our most recent room was on the 36th floor (thank you, Stephanie), with an awesome straight-on view of the Chrysler Building! Each room has its own character. This time we enjoyed not only a spacious main living room but beautiful bedroom, kitchen and bath. The beds and pillows were wonderfully comfy. The paintings were especially striking. Altogether, staying here is always a special treat.

Room Tip: Upper floors can have a spectacular view.

We stayed in february for one week, with a party of 3 adults. Our room was in the 19. Floor with a nice view on town.
The room have two very huge and comftortable beds, sleeping was very fine and no noise from street.
The room offers also a kitchen and a lot of space, never ever have so much space in ny!
There is a safe in the room and a very big Wardrobe and a huge flatscreen.
Wi-Lan was very fast, and i think the price of 62 dollars are ok for one week, we just payed it for room and not per item.
In the looby there is a printer, but you have to pay for the internet there also.
Heating worked very cood, but a little bit loud, so we switched it of in the night.
Empire state and shopping on 34 street ist only 5 minutes walk away and around the corner you can use the subway nr. 6.
Best stay i ever have in ny!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a higher level.

I've stayed in too many hotels in NY to remember. Most are the size of a closet and cost as much as a car payment. The Dumont rooms are large, full kitchen, great working area, nice bathroom and more. The staff always greats with a smile, remembers me from my last stay and is always willing to help. I can stock the kitchen from the market right outside the door.
Great place to stay.
