Fantastic hotel stay!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay. We felt the staff was outstanding--everyone was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. When we would return in the evening, the wonderful doorman would not only open the door but would bow and say "Welcome Home". On our last evening, I thanked him for his wonderful attitude and asked if I could hug him. The front desk help were knowledgeable, the housekeeping staff were always smiling. I am sure this hotel has very rigorous hiring standards and I applaud them. Our experience was fantastic. The wine hour was wonderful as well. I would plan to stay here again when we travel to New York.

The NYY steak house is a must go to place. The food was excellent, the service wonderful and the memorabilia is great. If you are able to get a tour to see the private dining areas, please take it. Love this restaurant.

tight

I have stayed at affinia hotels at least 100 nights in the past few years. I usually stay at the Dumont or Shelburne as it is closer to my clients. I requested a high floor here but was given room 418. Really tight space. had to set the iron up between bed and tv which left no room to actually get back to the closet without shuffling across the bed. Bathroom was not clean (hair). The last time I was here they were under construction but I had a much nicer room. Guess it is luck of the draw. Would recommend but dont stay in X18 room.

Great location, walking distance to the subway train and fifth avenue shopping. Great restaurants open late nearby. 2nd floor lounge featured happy hour daily, and had free wi-fi. We would definitely come back.

Clean, quiet HUGE room!

Booked this hotel as it's close to the subway for JFK airport Turned out to be great value for money: we got a deluxe room with a sofa area and it was well worth it. Lovely big room with TV and good air con. Room on 18th floor had hardly any traffic noise. The view was ok, nothing special. Good area with lots of places for breakfast

Girls getaway to NYC

I recently stayed at the Affinia 50 for a girls getaway to New York City. Upon arriving at the hotel, we were met by a very friendly front desk associate who checked us in quickly and efficiently. We arrived several hours before check in and were thrilled to find out that they had a room ready for us. We requested an upper floor room and they were able to accommodate that request. Four of us were in a Junior Suite which had two queen beds, a fold out sofa and a full kitchen. The room was very large, even by regular hotel standards, much less a New York hotel! There is plenty of storage in the room, bathroom and the kitchen. The 2nd floor Lounge area has several seating arrangements, and features coffee, tea and water all day, and from 5 o.m. to 6 p.m. they offer a wine and snack hour. The location on East 50th was very convenient to many of the must see locations. .Rockefeller Center, Times Square, the Public Library and Bryant Park are all within reasonable walking distance. There is an amazing pizza place just around the corner called AperiTIVO Pizza Bar on 3rd Avenue. Another favorite is the Brooklyn Diner on 43rd near Times Square. Absolutely delicious. Our plane left well past check out time so the staff stored our luggage until time for our flight. The doorman was quick to grab a taxi for us when needed and he was always very welcoming when we passed through the doors. The price for our stay was a great value, given the location, the accommodations and the amenities. Each staff member we encountered was friendly and gracious. I would highly recommend Affinia 50 for any length of stay in NYC!

Great place, great location!

We enjoyed our stay. The room was great, the staff was stellar, and the location was great - pretty close to most everything a new visitor to NYC would want to see. This was actually my first trip to NYC. I would give the hotel a 5 star rating, but I have two things I was disappointed about: 1) WiFi - since I didn't book my trip with the hotel directly we did not receive free in-room WiFi, rather we had to either pay a daily rate or go down to the lounge on the 2nd floor to use the free WiFi there. i over heard another guest checking in and she had free WiFi. When I asked why I did not have complimentary WiFi I was told it was because I did not book directly with the hotel; and, 2) the 2nd floor lounge has free coffee, but the breakfast bar, which consisted of not much more than a continental breakfast, was $16.95 per person per day. In my opinion that is an outrageous price for the paltry offerings, so we opted to eat elsewhere. My opinion about these two issues is that the hotel is penny pinching and that what little money they would have gotten is certainly not worth the negative impressions it left. I've had a better and free continental breakfast at motels a tenth of the price of the daily rate of this hotel. Finally, I shudder to think how much food they must throw out from this expensive breakfast bar. I told them the very same thing in the review they asked me to complete. Otherwise, our experience was very good.
