“Great place to stay in New York City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

We've been staying here on our trips to NYC for the last 5 years and I've been delinquent in giving it a review and I apologize. This is a great place to stay. The rooms are very big and the rooms have a kitchen, which is a real plus. The location is great because you are north of the 59th street bridge, which makes getting a taxi easier. It also far enough east so that you are in a neighborhood with supermarkets, so you can stock up your kitchen. We especially use it for breakfast, which can be expensive in the City. We just came back and were upgraded to a full suite, we usually get a junior suite, which we've always been happy with, but this was really a treat.
The price is definitely right especially on a Sunday night, we got a great deal. Compared to other hotels in New York City, you get a lot for your money.

Room Tip: Get a room away from the elevators.

Just to let you know that we had a wonderful, wonderful 7 day stay at The Affinia. Thank you very, very much for arranging our room – everything was perfect.



The staff were absolutely FANTASTIC. It was lovely to see some old faces again!



We will see you next year again – please just order some cooler weather for us!

A wonderful stay is music to our ears here at the Affinia Gardens. We appreciate you taking the time to share your comments and post a review. A repeat stay is one of the ultimate compliments for us and we are happy we had the chance to welcome you back. As for the weather, we are constantly trying new ways to influence this but in the meantime our Engineering team will continue to work hard to make sure we are always a cool place to come back to during the summer.

After coming to the Affinia Gardens for the past 7 years and MANY thousands of dollars later it's time to not come back. The last time we stayed here we said we were not coming back and this time solidified that.
While its great that they remodeled the lobby the rooms are a dump.
The furniture had rips and stains, the carpet stained and not to mention the gross bathrooms.
There's nothing like spending nearly $500 a night to come back to a hallway always filled with maids carts, bags of linens and garbage near the elevators. Every day for 6 days was it like this. The only thing maid service did in our rooms was make the bed and change the bathroom. Everything else was left as is, coffee cups, things that were obvious to toss, garbage not changed. The head of housekeeping is not doing her job at all as we did complain and only got some [--] responses. Sorry Affinia Gardens my business is going elsewhere.

we recently spent a week in NYC, our 1st time in the Big Apple, and had the pleasure of staying at the Affinia Gardens. The service was spectacular, the rooms clean, the beds comfy. My only 2 complaints is that there was no free internet in the rooms, it was quite pricy to obtain and there was no restaurant. However we were in NYC so no shortages of restaurants nearby. Caprice, Pedro, Michael, Krys and the others were extremely helpful with directions, restaurant suggestions and general info and made sure our stay was pleasurable.

Thank you to the staff at the Affiinia Gardens for a lovely stay in NYC. Each time I entered the lobby, I was greeted by a smile from the staff. The rooms were huge for NYC and very comfortable. The location is also great for someone looking for a quieter spot with lots of neighborhood shops and diners. Also, easy access to Central Park. Thanks!

Loved the area, no crowed at all. The services in front desk was perfect, specially because they speak spanish. We rented two rooms connected and the decoration and spaces were fabulous!! Perfectly clean and comfort beds.

I first had reserved a Junior suite, but as I didn't like it, I upgrade to a larger and less dark suite. I was very happy there. I have to thank so much, the excellent service of Caprice and Pedro in front office, Anna as room service , Cris that helped me with my bags and boxes, and advice me to take 1202, and Joan as the head officer in house keeper. I shall be back hopefully next year, for 21 days, as I have medical check up. I shall return to room 1202. Is there any way I could find a better rate, as I am staying a long time, and eventually every year? Awaiting your answer, kindest regards
