“Really, really good hotel - highly recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2010

Excellent position within the City - walking distance of Times Square, Fifth Avenue shopping etc and also close to the open-top bus routes as well. Not so close that there was a lot of noise though. Had the best nights sleep I've had for a long time at this hotel. Very large rooms for NYC, complete with sitting area and kitchen and although the consumables provided by the hotel (e.g water, sweets etc) were expensive they were top quality. Hotel staff were excellent and service was top notch from start to finish. Didn't try the Spa but it also has an excellent reputation and discounts are available to hotel residents. The restaurant next door (The Barking Dog) was great too - friendly staff, wide-ranging menu and nice outdoor seating area. Cannot find anything bad to say about this place - excellent value for money, would recommend it to anyone.

I was travelling to New York for the first time, so wanted to ensure I had a great trip and so did my homework on places to stay. I booked the Affinia Dumont after reading the reviews on trip advisor......and I am so happy I did. We had a fantastic room on the 20th floor, which was much bigger than my expectations of a New York hotel room. Our veiw was fab of the city and we could see the Chrysler building in all it's glory.
The staff at the hotel could not have been more accomodating and made a couple of great restaurant recommendations, neither of which disappointed us.
The location of the hotel was perfect, two blocks up and you are outside the Empire State building, so close enough to everything, yet just far enough away from the noise to ensure a good nights sleep.
I thorougly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Dear Traveladdict1973,
I’m delighted to hear that we exceeded your expectations. The city is very special, and even more so when you have a view of a wonderful Landmark building, like our Chrystler Building, and I’m sure that was delightful for your first New York experience. Thank you for your honest feedback on all the areas you found so satisfying, it makes us work harder to offer every guest the same experience. Thanks for choosing to stay with us, and more so for considering to stay with us again in the near future.
Be well,
Glenda Maldonado

Very pleased with our stay at the Affinia. Our room was ready early morning which was great considering we had just caught the red eye from San Francisco. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. All very knowledgeable about the area, what to see, where to go, how to get there etc. Very handy having a little kitchen in your room and a laundry in the basement. 7 kinds of pillows available from housekeeping. There was a 24hr deli just 2 doors down which had all of the essentials. Great location. Within a couple of blocks of a subway station. Easy walking distance to Empire State building. A nice stroll to all the good shops, Times Square, etc. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to all leisure travellers.

Dear ElsvisHW,

I’m so glad you were able to experience our Affinia Dumont, and got an early check-in, to help you rest from your long flight. Our staff does take pride in their hotel, and its neighborhood, and we’re very lucky to be in the heart of New York, and so centrally located. Very pleased to read that our service, location, and product were to your liking, and as a result, have become a loyal fan and will recommend it others. We appreciate your generous comments.
Be well,

I thoroughly enjoyed my 7 days at the Affinia Dumont. The room was immaculate. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Front desk was able to answer all my questions. Concierge very helpful with all my needs while at the hotel. The doormen was always front and center with taxis and a smile, even in the rain.

This trip was to celebrate my birthday and the hotel was nice enough to give me a room with a fantastic view of the Chrysler Building.

I would recommend the Affinia Dumont to anyone traveling to New York.

Stayed for 5 days in May 10. Had a suite on floor 33 with fantastic city views (see others pictures). Asked for a high room and the staff were very helpful to arrange this and throughout our stay. The room was clean, the maid and concierge service was friendly and made our stay a very pleasant one.
34th street location was superb for getting around Manhattan, only 2 blocks from the subway. Plenty of things to do along 34th street too.
As expected the cost was higher than some hotels but as they say, you get what you pay for.
Would love to go back and stay here again.

I just returned last night from New York City and we stayed at the Affinia Dumont because of posts I had read here. So glad we did. I had e-mailed the manager explaining that we were celebrating our 25th anniversary, and we wondered if we could have a room with a view. He wrote me back explaining that he had put a request in on my behalf. When we arrived we had a fabulous room with a breathtaking view. They also put out a complimentary bottle of wine and an anniversary card. We were very impressed. Our room was spacious, clean and lacked for nothing. The air conditioning worked and our bed was extremely comfortable. The location is away from Times Square, but a nice walk to burn off the rich dinners we consumed every day. Right around the corner is a very good Italian restaurant called DaCiro. We really liked the atmosphere and food here. It is at 229 Lexington. We had a wonderful trip and a big part of it was being able to stay at such a nice hotel and everyone at the front desk is professional and extremely friendly. Also, one day after walking for miles, I had a massage done at the hotel's spa. Her name was Jennifer and she gave one of the best massages I have ever had. At the front desk, they will give you a coupon for 25% off any spa service. It worked out to be a very good deal.

Thank you for taking the time, so quickly after your stay to let others know about your recent stay with us at the Affinia Dumont. We love hearing about the milestones of our guests, and like to celebrate and make them special. I’m so glad you enjoyed the room and wine. It’s great you got the opportunity to try DaCiro’s Italian Restaurant. It’s a hidden treasure, and a personal favorite of mine as well. I will be sure and share your comments on the staff with them, as they appreciate hearing from our guests, and it makes them try harder.
Thanks again, and be well.
