“Very nice hotel in a great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2011

I'm an Ex-New Yorker and traveled to the city for a wedding. It was my 4 year olds first time in the city and the hotel was wonderful for all of us. Location is great for walking or for the subway. Tons of food and shops around. Hotel staff were all very friendly and even got us an early check in after coming in from Los Angeles on a redeye. Only complaint was the rather outdated tv's in the rooms. Old and not a big channel selection. Overall great place though and we will definitely be back on our next visit!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2011

Our first trip to New York, we were impressed with the reception team. I phoned the night before to see whether we could get an 'upgrade' to a higher 'room with a view' as it was my partners birthday when we arrived ( and possibly the last holiday for a while as she was 5 months pregnant at the time!) which they said would be no problem!

When we arrived we were not disappointed as it was on the 23rd floor with a view overlooking the Chrysler building. The room was extremely spacious with a massive double bed, a desk/ office area (which doubled as a dining area).

There is also a decently equipped kitchenette which was very useful as my partner was too tired to go out after sightseeing one night & it enabled me to cook a proper meal which we could eat at the desk area ( there is a deli / grocery store next to the hotel that does fresh bread, hot and cold food and (randomly) a great fresh flower market too). Also the hotel has a restaurant that is joined on to the side which we didn't use, but is reported to be ok.

The location is a little out of the main sightseeing area, but is still easily within walking distance to all the sights (even though pregnant!) But the area is nice and quiet, but still just lively enough throughout the day & night to give you the city centre vibe.

All in all, it was a great value hotel with very friendly staff in a central location with surprisingly spacious rooms (for what we have been told about New York)

Just a couple of things I had to pick up on (because everything can't be perfect) are:

I couldn't get used to the air-con (as it was in Degrees Fahrenheit) and kept coming on in the middle of the night, but that was probably me just being slightly thick.

The TV in the room is in need of an upgrade to a plasma, and free wifi would complete the rooms perfectly.

But we would still return regardless!!

The hotel itself was in an ideal central location for most of the tourist attractions and nightlife/shows. This was made even more pleasant by all the staff who were charming and helpful especially the concierge Charlene who went a long way to making our trip as enjoyable as it was. The restaurant next door was staffed by equally pleasant people and the food was excellent although not fancy and more suited to breakfast/brunch rather than dinner

I was a girls weekend, two moms and our daughters (six and ten). we arrived around 11 am and were not only told we could check in early we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite. the staff was efficient and very friendly. we called to have the pull out sofa bed made up and someone was there in minutes, she even brought us towels even though we did not request. Murry Hill has a lot of offer (restaurants, sights, shopping) and you can easily get to uptown or downtown.

My daughter recently was married in New York City. It was a pleasure to stay at The Dumont during this busy time. The rooms were large, clean and well appointed. The staff was friendly and helpful at all hours of the day. Our location was close to all our activities. I would recommend The Dumont to anyone wanting a perfect place to stay.

This was our first trip to New York and we were expecting to have a small hotel room but the Affinia really surprised us. The one bedroom suite was fantastic. We had a massive comfortable bed, and a very clean well appointed ensuite. The living room was spacious with two sofa's and entertainment unit and a large desk if you need to work during your stay. There is also a small kitchen if you like to cook your own meals ( full size fridge included ). The staff are friendly and helpful and the location was perfect. Being midtown and right near the subway meant we had easy access to everything the city had to offer.

Last minute priceline find. One bedroom suite. Very nice furnishings, great view from 28th floor. We were told to call when we wanted the sofa bed made up, but when we did we were told there was no staff to do it for us. They delivered linens and we did it ourselves. Front desk said would credit our bill but when we checked out it wasn't. When we requested the credit the desk person was very accomodating.

Concierge, Dave has got to be the best in NYC.

Would stay there again definitely.
