Nice Hotel - No Frills

Posted Aug 27, 2014
Location: Walk to central park, central park zoo.
We had a single king bed with sofa pull-out, and the room was very spacious. The rooms with 2 queens may be smaller. Room was clean. Hotel is in a nice quiet neighborhood. Lots of restaurants, diners, cafes nearby. Staff is very polite.

nice enough hotel, but internally noisy... It is odd to be greeted with in-room earplugs.

Nice quiet location.

One night stay. Everything was great. I did have something sent to the hotel prior to getting there and only half of it was actually in the room. I had to go and track down the other box. Very clean. Great for families.

Nice hotel in busy city

Posted Jul 15, 2014
Pros: See above
Cons: See above
Location: Good location but you really need to use the subway to get around all of Manhattan especially in the summer heat.
The Affinia gardens hotel is a great place to rest your weary head in the madness that is Manhattan. We had a large comfortable room, a junior suite which had a huge double bed and large sofa bed. Perfect for a mum and teenager. Helpful, pleasant staff. Free wifi in hotel lobby. We really enjoyed our stay. Our room on the third floor was really quiet apart from one evening when our next door neighbours were very loud and rowdy. The matter was speedily handled by the hotel security. It would have been nice if there had been a small hotel bar.

Friendly and Efficient

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Stayed a week. Very friendly and efficient staff at front desk at all times. Room cleaning good. Decor a bit jumbled. Could have done the room better without spending more. King bed comfy, bathroom small but well-equipped.

Cons: Put in new carpet. One of the 2 beds squeaked.
There was an unpleasant odor upon entering our room. The carpets were well worn and stained and one of the beds squeaked. It was very nice to have a kitchen and the size of the room was quite large. The hotel staff was very pleasant and extremely accommodating.

Location: Everything was within walking distance.......especially Central Park
We only stayed in NYC for one night and this was a perfect place for my family of 5. The front desk staff was excellent and accomdated our every need. They even had bikes for us to use for Central Park.

Great hotel close to everything.

Posted Jun 22, 2014
Pros: It was a pretty hotel in the upper eastside with friendly helpful staff. I liked that it was clean, and the cleaning service was done out of sight.
Cons: I would say that I didn't quite get the working of the TV, but that was a minute issue in respect to everything else about the hotel.
Location: It was just a couple blocks from Central Park and close to all the high end shopping, great restaurants and quaint coffee shops, and the subway.
I spent the weekend at this hotel in the jr. suite with a full kitchen I and absolutely loved it though I didn't use the kitchen. it was less than a 5 min. walk from Central Park and close to nearly everything, not to mention that the subway was a 7 minute walk away as well, so all of the boroughs were accessible. It was quite, very clean and had helpful friendly staff. The impression I had was that it seemed geared towards families, so it was busy but it still felt like you were their only client and they knew and remembered who we were and our unit despite having a full hotel. It was ritzy without being bougie or pretentious. I recommend getting the hotel car to pick you up if you're going to stay here, because my journey from Newark airport was hectic and the cost was pretty much the same (well, we were a group), and I made sure to leave using the hotel car.

Great location and service (will come back)

Posted Jun 9, 2014
Pros: Location and great service. For NYC standards room was gigantic and it had small fully stocked kitchen.
Cons: Bathroom could use a facelift but it was clean and well maintained.
Location: Excellent restaurants filled with locals. Check out "Felice 64"and "le pain quotidien" both walking distance and awesome food.
Stayed for five nights at the end of May. Hotels is in great location away from craziness of midtown and times square but a quick walk or a subway ride to it all. Close to great restaurant and few minutes from central park. Check out Roosevelt Island which is nearby and feels like an oasis in the middle of NYC. Will stay again next time in NYC.
