“Value and Comfort in an Excellent Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014

I have stayed twice at this hotel in the past 6 six months. Full disclosure, we selected it for proximity to the park, relative serenity from the NYC tourist hustle and bustle, and a valid alternative to renting a private condo or townhome. We enjoyed both visits: the staff is excellent and attentive, the rooms are clean, expansive and well equipped and the hotel is in a perfect location. This is NOT a property for those looking for ultimate luxury or amenities such as an in-house restaurant but if you are seeking a nicely appointed, well equipped room with a very friendly staff that is willing to go the extra mile - this is your place on the Upper East Side.

Dear PK_AZ,

Thank you for leaving your review of the Affinia Gardens. I am happy that you were able to stay with us twice within 6 months. Our excellent staff, well equipped rooms and unique UES neighborhood will really make anyone want to come back for more. Your full disclosure review is more than accurate, however the luxury does come from our amazing team!

I hope I get to meet you on your next trip back to New York City!

Our stay was made especially easy and comfortable because of the efforts of Kris and Caprice, front desk and doorman. Kris and Caprice honored our requests with dispatch, courteously and with a smile. The hotel was clean and neat and an easy walk from our destination. The rooms were large and comfortable. My colleagues and I will return.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor have small patios and are quiet.

Dear houseboy81,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your brief review on your most recent stay at Affinia Gardens. It was a pleasure knowing that you had a memorable experience and enjoyed our UES neighborhood, restaurants and amazing staff. Our neighborhood is really a unique one as you don't feel that hustle and bustle of midtown. I hope that you have the opportunity to come back and enjoy more of what we have to offer!

We lived in New York for a number of years and wanted to stay near to where we had lived and Affinia Gardens was perfect. Great for Bloomingdales and a number of very good midtown and upper east side restaurants. The suite we stayed in was superb - lots of space (hotels in Manhattan can be so small) perfect given we were travelling as a family. All the staff at reception and concierge could not have been more helpful - let us store luggage whilst we travelled outside NY - organised all transfers and upgraded us on our return trip. Very good value for money given the price of nearby hotels. Will definitely be staying again

Room Tip: If travelling as a family definitely choose one of the two bedroom suites - so much room and provide...

The rooms were very clean and had all the amenities. Kitchen, large desk, comfortable bed, living space with large TV, and a fresh bathroom. If that wasn't enough, the staff is extremely friendly. They quickly become part of the family. The morning doorman, Kris, is always pleasant to talk to and very helpful. Besides the hotel, the restaurants nearby are great as well.
