5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

Stayed for 3 nights at Affinia Gardens and could'nt have picked a better place. Located upper east side it had the charm of the quiet neighborhood. The staff was courteous and helpful, the room was spacious and clean. Had all the comforts of home and was in walking distance of Central Park and the subway. Our room was facing the busy street and never had a problem sleeping with noise. I will definately recommend and stay again!

We are happy to hear you enjoyed our clean and oversized suites which all feature a full kitchen and provide a quiet and comfortable oasis after a busy day of enjoying all that New York City has to offer, including the beautiful Central Park. A repeat stay (or a recommendation to others) is one of the ultimate compliments for us and we eagerly await the chance to welcome you back soon!

Wishing you and your family TLC now and always,

Steve Sasso

We choose to elope in NYC. The affinia gardens was most helpful in assisting us with this out of state venture. They also did a fantastic job of not letting the groom see his bride the day of the wedding!!!! Kris Krol made a very fine escort of myself (the bride) and my matron of honor to the car service he had arranged! The entire staff made all (5) of us feel like we were the only ones staying at the hotel! Sal also assisted my husband to be with many arrangements! After a hot day in the city we enjoyed a bottle of champagne that was a gift from Steve Sasso the manager of affinia gardens. Excellent service for a special occasion on a busy Fourth of July weekend!!!!

I was visiting NYC with my friends. We stayed here for some time and it was a lovely experience. The moment you enter the hotel you know that you are going to have a great time here. They make sure they provide you with everything you need to make your stay worthwhile.

Ever walk into a hotel and feel they had you at “Welcome”? This New York [Suite] hotel has all the amenities to make you feel like an old time New Yorker! Its large Living Room, Bedroom [both with 42” HDTV’s] and complete apartment-size (full) kitchens will definitely have you coming to NY again and again! And (very) unusual for any hotel, they have self-service laundry machines and dryers on the basement level! This boutique hotel is nestled in a [lovely] residential area of the Upper East Side of Manhattan, and although they do not have a restaurant or cafeteria, it is conveniently located a corner away from Supermarkets, Deli’s, Pharmacies, Banks and many (delivery offering) restaurants. The hospitality is impeccable! Stay there and you will agree with me: I could live there ‘year-round’!

This is just an extremely upscale hotel - clean, modern, decorated in the latest styles - with a kitchen in each room. Amazing staff. Great access to everything in the city, but located in a particularly lovely upper east side neighborhood. This place, and it's staff offer a calm oasis in what can be an overwhelming city. Everyone goes out of their way to accomodate! Will stay here again and again; and I used to live in NYC so I know all the hotels and areas. This is a hidden gem.

This is a premium hotel for a premium price. The staff is incredibly friendly. The hotel is beautifully maintained. The rooms are very nicely appointed. My ONLY complaint is that the pull out couch mattress was uncomfortable. I know that they all are but it seems like if you're going to pay a premium to stay - you get to sleep in a comfortable bed. I mean - doesn't it make sense that you'd put the kids to bed in the room with the door and the grown ups will sleep on the pull out? So, shouldn't they get a comfortable bed? They are paying the bill. Alas - it seems to be an unfortunate reality no matter where you stay.

OK - back to the good. I honestly don't have any other complaint. We all really enjoyed staying here. It is a great place and I plan to go back (next time without the kids).

Perfect place to stay in the Upper East Side. Close to the Central Park and the Zoo Entrance, shopping on Lexington, Madison and 3rd Avenue, and to all must-sees museums.
There are also very good restaurants nearby. We went to Brio, Fig & Olive, Serafina Grill, Serendipity 3, Jackson Hole, Tony di Napoli,...All of them aren´t more than 4 blocks away from the hotel.
W got a Junior Suite Patio which was perfect for my kids to play around. The bedroom itself was huge and the kitchen had all we need to prepare a meal.
The staff was helpful and friendly, especially the guys from the front desk, Pedro and Sal.
Very good value for money. I highly recommend this hotel.
