Small Bathroom!

Posted Aug 28, 2014
Pros: Nice lobby and attached bar. Staff was very nice.
Cons: Make better use of small space with improved storage.
Location: Excellent location right by Penn Station and Madison Square Garden
Room was small but sufficient and clean. Quick maid service. The bathroom, however, was teeny tiny. Absolutely no room to put anything out, unless you want to use the toilet seat as a counter. Shelves or something on the back door certainly would have been helpful. It was tough as a woman with cosmetics. Also the air conditioner was incredibly loud and kicked on and off constantly throughout the night. At least it drowned out the sirens outside!

Not Chelsea

It probably was once a nice hotel, but it is very rundown. The room was large, but the bathroom was old, tired and dirty. The air conditioning unit was very loud and cycled on and off constantly.

Great hotel in a fantastic location!

First time in New York, I had no idea what to expect. Affinia Manhattan, was perfect in every way. Friendly staff, very clean rooms, affordable rates, great restaurant and bar, and the location can't be beat.

Great location!

Posted Aug 25, 2014
Pros: Convenient to Penn Station and subway. It's far enough from Time Square so the crowds aren't bad but close enough to walk there. Great staff!
Cons: Attention to detail, I requested extra pillows and towels but had to call and ask for them any way. They were brought right up, but had to ask again.
Location: It is across the street from Penn Station and close to subway stops, walking distance to broadway and Time Square. Plenty of resturants and stores.
We rode the train up and the hotel is across the street from Penn Station, very convenient. Time square is with in walking distance and the subway stops are only a block or two away. We had a great view of the city, it was noisy but they did supply ear plugs.😀 I liked having a frig to put left overs in and cream for my morning coffee. We did have to ask for extra towels each day, which was a little annoying. The over all experience was good, this was our second stay here and I think we will go back.

Great location and nice hotel

Posted Aug 21, 2014
Pros: Location
Cons: The sinks are a really dumb design.
Location: Penn station is across the street with access to every destination. I loved being close to Macy's.
The only real fault I had with the hotel was the housekeeping was more of a change of towels and make the bed. I had spilt some nail polish remover on the bathroom floor and I cleaned it up but I could still smell it 2 days later as they hadn't mopped the floor. My husband enjoyed happy hour in the lounge. We had a lovely meal in the restaurant. All in all I wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend to a friend.

Centrally located very nice hotel

Posted Aug 19, 2014
We love this hotel as we travel to NYC via train into Penn Station and simply walk across the street...It is clean, comfortable, and has a nice restaurant and bar. The hotel is within an easy walk to Macys, the Empire State Bldg and Fifth Avenue. Its location is roughly midway between Central Park and Battery Park, making Manhatten sights accessible via a long walk or short cab ride...The staff in the hotel and restaurant were very professional, friendly and accommodating .By NYC standards the rooms are reasonably priced..Will definitely return to the Affinia Manhatten.

❤️NYC

Posted Aug 19, 2014
Pros: Comfortable beds. Enjoyed the thoughtful gift from hotel on my bday!
Location: Train station and subway close by! The start the High Line path was a few blocks away. Short walk to Times Square.
We spent 6 days enjoying NYC. The Affinia was a good choice, it was clean, staff were friendly and helpful and great location. Comfy rooms, we had a studio and found the kitchenette handy, more space than we expected! Liked the happy hour.
