“Best hotel in New York City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

This hotel is the absolute BEST! Spacious and large rooms for NYC. VERY clean and the staff is friendly and helpful. I would reccommend this hotel to anyone visiting New York that wants an excellent location and fantastic room. You can't beat it.

We stayed for a week on 36th floor facing north and had great views room was good with 3 adults in a jr suite start with a tour of the room by Alex who told us of great places to eat and to see close to the hotel. We did not know the Empire State was just up 34th street. Steph and Simone in the front were very helpful with directions and nothing was to hard. Used the hotel bike for a ride thru the streets and Central Park which was fun. Time Sq and Central Park were very close so we walked to most locations taxi to uptown or downtown was about 10 dollars so when walking got to much we took a cab.

Room Tip: Go for the jr suite it is great for 2 or 3 adults if willing to share

Dear Brian D,

Thank you for such a great review! You had one of the highly coveted corner Skyline Suites that overlook the Chrysler Building as well as the East River. Watching the sun rise in the morning over the East River is such a tranquil yet uplifting experience. And yes, yes, the Empire State Building is literally just steps away from the Affinia Dumont right on 34th Street. Additionally, it’s such a pleasure to hear that our staff what accommodating and helpful with all your requests and inquiries. You are absolutely right, nothing is too much too as they genuinely go above and beyond for our guests. We hope that we’ll have the pleasure of your visit very soon again.

Sincerely,
Alex Spektor

The friendly, helpful staff made staying at the Affinia Dumont a pleasure. We had a reasonable sized room with two queen sized beds, a good view and a kitchenette. Beds were very comfortable. There is a bus that goes right along 34th Street and takes you straight up to Macy's and Penn station if you get tired of walking. Both young people and middle aged people staying in this hotel - good friendly atmosphere

Room Tip: Ask for a view.

Dear holidaymaker213,

Thank you for your amazing review! It’s such a pleasure reading about your stay at the Affinia Dumont and in New York City…
Yes, the view from our high-floor Skyline Suites is breathtaking – especially if you have one of the corner rooms and get the dual view of the City as well as the East River. Simply stunning! And our Wine Hour, of course highly successful and popular, has been a great meeting and socializing point for a lot of our guests, and I thank you for stopping by and getting a glass of wine. I look forward to your next visit soon-we are just a call or click away.

Sincerely,

We spent 8 nights in NYC and loved staying here. The Skyline 1 Bedroom had a huge bed and ensuite. The lounge room was massive too. Two TV's and a small but convenient kitchen. Great for our family of four even though the kids thought our bed was way more comfortable than the pull out sofa lounge. The restaurant downstairs provides room service and there is a Baskins and convenience store on the corner too. Walking distance to Times Square 20-30mins and 10mins walk to the East River Ferry. Empire State Building and Macys on the same street 10mins walk too. Subway stop 5mins walk. We were even able to get a 10lb bag of washing done for $10 at the cleaners around the corner. Wash and fold. Staff always very helpful and room and amenities very clean. We would definitely stay here again.

Dear Janelle C,

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your review! The Affinia Dumont is perfect for longer stays such as yours especially when travelling with a family (with children). Our One-Bedroom Suites are spacious enough and come with either one King Size bed or two Queen Beds. And of course, the living room and bedroom are completely separate each featuring a large flat screen TV with a fully equipped kitchen to make you feel right at home and an oversize workstation should you have any work to get done. And not to mention our attentive staff who anticipate your needs and ensure that all of our requests are executed in a timely manner. Next time, for all of your laundry needs, please visit our laundry facility in the basement which will make your stay even more comfortable. Once again, thank you for staying with us! I look forward to your next stay at the Affinia Dumont!

Sincerely,
Alex Spektor

This hotel is situated on East 34th Street and has lots of great cafés and restaurants nearby (Murray Hill area) including Jimmy's BBQ, Vezzo, Fatburger and Pie Face. All were reasonably priced. The portions at Jimmy's BBQ in particular were massive. A starter of nachos, fed me, my boyfriend and there was still some leftover! It was very studenty at night.

The Affinia Dumont is a great hotel. We went for a standard studio apartment for 2 people. The room was spacious (and quiet) and the bed was huge, with a firm mattress. The hotel offers a pillow menu, so you can choose the type of pillow which suits you best. We went for the magnetic therapy ones and slept like babies! There was a kitchen area with a large fridge, hobs, microwave, sink and cutlery and dishes were supplied. We found the kitchen facilities very handy. We had cereal in the mornings so that we could go out quickly and see more of the city. It was also nice to have cool drinks to come back to at night.

The staff were very helpful and friendly. The hotel offers a wine hour in the lobby (5-6pm?)

The hotel can organise a cab to the airport for a fixed fee. We made use of this as our suitcases were much heavier on the way back with our purchases!

5th avenue was in walking distance from the hotel and there was a metro (line 6) about 5 mins away.

Dear Anne S,

Thank you for such a fantastic review of the Affinia Dumont!
Your title sums up most of our guests’ experiences, especially the ones who keep coming back year after year – it truly is a home away from home. From the spacious suites, fully equipped kitchens in every suites, Signature Affinia bedding and six-choice pillow menu-you really end up feeling like you are right at home. And when you step outside, you are not part of the mad rush of Times Square or any other tourist area in NYC, but experience more of a neighborhood where you can take a leisurely stroll down 34th street and stop by at one of the cafes or authentic restaurants and take in the experience. I’m very happy you mentioned Wine Hour which we host in the lobby from 5-6pm every evening. It’s been such a huge success and our guests have a great time mingling and socializing with our management staff and with one another. Thank you for taking the time to reflect on your experience and provide us with your review – I look forward to your next stay with us.

Sincerely,
Alex Spektor

Great stay. Free upgrade and bottle of wine upon checkin. No issue setting up the pull out couch with sheets and pillows. Good location.and a fairly quick/cheap taxi ride to and from places. Lack of complimentary Wi-Fi is the only down side to the visit.
