“Great stay, hotel, location!”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

My stay was very nice! The staff had big smiles, doorman was always there to help or get a cab. The people posting negative reviews on here need a reality check. It has all amenities of popular chain hotels (gym, room service, business area, big desk in room). Only issue I had was expedia told me room has "one bed" and didn't tell which size, but I booked last minute and ended up with 2 queens, which was a nice surprise!

I had to come to New York twice for surgery at the Hospital for Special Surgery. The first time the Helmsley, across the street from the hospital, was completely booked. Desperate for a place to stay I settled on the Affinia 50 even with it's mixed reviews - the price was right, location great. When we arrived on a Sunday afternoon we were a bit nervous because the lobby was a bit dark, gloomy. Come to find out they were in the middle of a major renovation. We stayed in a brand new room on the second floor. Our view was a scaffolding for the renovation which was a bit nerve racking assuming there would be lots of noise. Never a peep was heard coming from the construction. When I arrived back at the hotel after my outpatient surgery I had several contraptions to use for my recovery. The bellman brought them right up to my room along with a huge bag of ice for one of the machines. They continued to bring us ice throughout the night. Also, they gave us a later check out time to accommodate my lack of mobility.

When I found out I had to have a second surgery my first choice of hotel was affinia 50. most of the renovation had been completed. they had a beautiful new lobby! this time around they were just as accommodating and kind as the first time around.

i can't explain how comfy the bed is! got wonderful nights of sleep on both visits.

Keep up the good work!

Affenia 50 have a great location for both sightseeing an shopping. The staff is friendly, espessialy the doormens, who realy do their best to make your stay as convinient as possible. The rooms are quite spacious, though the bathroom are small. The wiew from the room was a dissapointment, looking right in a wall.

We were pleasantly surprised at how large the room was, according to my husband, pretty good for NY standards. We had a renovated room, very tidy, modern and well appointed. Good location and easy to discover the city. Chilled vibe with happy hour 5-6pm offering free wine to guests in the 2nd floor common area. Nice touch.
