Chose to stay here in December 2013 because it was one of the few places in NYC that had a fully equipped kitchen and a bedroom with two queen beds to accommodate a family of four. Turns out this is a gem, the staff were fantastic, the room was comfortable and clean and the location was fantastic. A 10 minute walk to the park, a very short walk to the 63rd st Subway and 5 minutes to Bloomingdales and a second subway station. There was a supermarket close by and a decent coffee place (not starbucks) 5 minutes north. Affinia Gardens was an excellent choice and we already can't wait to come back and stay here again.

We always stay at the Affinia Gardens Hotel, a hotel so ideally located in the quieter upper side of town, whilst being near everything we need. But especially for doorman Chris who is always so helpful, professional and pleasant, and helps make our stay enjoyable comfortable and relaxing. He has been there for years and has always been reliable for anything.

My mother's surgery was unexpectedly rescheduled. They were understanding and allowed us to change or reservation at 2pm without charging us for the day. A kindness we really needed in that moment. Thanks guys.

Room Tip: Very close to Sloan Kettering's Breast Cancer Center.

My husband and I stayed here while I was undergoing tests at Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital. It was very convenient. It was a short walk to the hospital. The room was quite large, clean, and comfortable. The staff was very nice. They gave us a free upgrade...that's always nice. We would definitely stay here again.

The Affinia Gardens hotel is in a lovely residential neighborhood (Upper East Side) and is convenient to East side subways and buses (and a few blocks from Bloomingdales!)

Very friendly and helpful staff.

Rooms are larger than average with a kitchenette, cable television, large bathroom, etc.

Decor is modern and comfortable and rooms and common areas are spotless.

It can be real benefit to be in a residential neighborhood vs. high traffic tourist center and the location is a perfect jumping off point for many of the City's attractions.

I choose this hotel because it was directly across the street from the hospital where I needed to have surgery. I was very happy with the staff and the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was large, clean and very nice. The room service is from local restaurants and I could not believe how quick we got our dinner. I would highly recommend this hotel. Nice area as well.

Room Tip: It was my first time and I was on the 5th floor which was quiet.

My experience with Affinia Gardens goes back to when it was called Lyden Gardens. My parents lived near by and when my family grew we stayed at affinia where there was more room. Whenever we visited the city the very cordial and helpful staff here always made us feel like we were welcomed back and staying at our home away from home.. My parents passed away 2009. We had not been back until now. Wanted to start bringing the grandchildren to see the city. Would not stay anywhere else but here. First the big hugs we got they hadn't forgotten us. Thank you Sal Kris and hi to Michael whom we missed this trip. They are so helpful no matter how busy they are. The rooms are spacious, the kitchen very handy and well supplied,the bathroom clean with separate mirror and plugs outside for makeup and hair(a definite with teenagers)and the view we always ask for garden view. It's quiet and it is just far away from the crowded parts of the city,but you can get a cab or a car or nearby subway ride to anywhere.. We always go to Silver Star for home cooked breakfast and any other meal you might want. Then dinner at Tony's near by too. A walk to Central Park easily! Can't say enough for the housekeeping staff who always speak fluent English and a smile on their face who leave the rooms so clean. A special thank you to our house keeper who found my daughter's ring and bag and the management sent them immediately to us. Thank you everyone for still making our stay the best! We will return!!
