Stayed for 2 weeks and was very pleased with the hotel service and room! I got the Penthouse 4 wich was huge and with a very nice balcony/patio!! The hotel staff was great! However, there are two things the need to improve on: they shouldn't leave the house-keeping stuff in the hotel corridor and they should renovate the kitchens! Highly recommended for a long stay as you can buy anything you need at the supermarket accross the street!!!

Okay place to stay but the management needs to work on the physical plant. The place was designed by someone who did not know how or forgot to measure. The bathroom fixtures fell off in my hand! The furniture is cheap and not very comfortable. However, the Staff is very pleasant, knowledgeable and works hard to make you comfortable; the beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean.

The Affinia Gardens was a comfortable home base for this family trip to NYC. The staff was friendly and helpful. There have been consistent upgrades to keep this older hotel looking fresh. The lobby coffee station was fun for my 8 year old.

After reading an article about how this hotel had a "glamping" ('glamorous camping') option, I contacted the hotel manager (Steve Sasso) to inquire about same, who got back to me promptly and put me in touch with the office manager (ask for Deanna, she handled all aspects of glamping preparation, and did a fantastic job), who fielded my questions and took care of all the details. I was somewhat nervous at first, as this was for my first anniversary and I had no idea what to expect, but once we got there we were immediately impressed with the setup. My girlfriend is from upstate NY and loves camping, however we live and work (a lot) in the city now so true 'camping' isnt really an option, but this package offered all the perks of same (an awesome tent set up on a huge patio, mini fire with graham crackers chocolate and marshmellows, flashlights, etc), without the fuss of trekking out of the city. We actually got to lay out under the stars, in a huge city like New York (the location on the upper east side makes for a surprisingly quiet and peaceful setting), eating smores and having a great time, and all at literally a fraction of the cost I expected when I first inquired.

The staff was incredibly affable, helpful and polite. I could not have been more pleasently surprised about how the whole thing turned out. The hotel room was very large, clean, new and very impressive. I couldnt recommend this hotel more, and especially this glamping option. It was a very special and unforgettable experience.

We were in NYC on business/ pleasure. My wife came down with a horrible viral illness. We missed a broadway show. Fever, chills. The hotel staff went out and bought a heating pad for my wife's muscle aches,sent water and soup to the room and checked on us several times. I felt like we had our own Jewish mother. Many thanks to Kris and Caprice and the rest of the staff. We have stayed at The Affinia Gardens twice before and noted the helpful and friendly atmosphere. This stay confirmed our impression.

Room Tip: In the back. No street noise.

This hotel was an oasis in the middle of New York, no honking horns. The kitchenette in the room was a blessing for keeping food in the unexpectedly warm Fall weather. The staff were all friendly and helpful. It was like a smaller hotel as they knew you. A bonus was the laundry facilities in the basement, always useful when travelling.
