Front desk staff is excellent. One particular lady went above and beyond to find me a room/location I found most suitable to my needs. Bellman service is great, specifically Rome. 5star service at a 4 star hotel. Coffee lounge is so convenient on the second floor. Rooms are nice. Only complaint is my bathtub and toilet had hairs from the previous guest, […] and the tub was extremely slow to drain. Since the tub doesn't drain, I imagine the tub isn't cleaned between guests, only wiped off with a rag. It's a downer to not be able to soak in a bath after a long day of travel, but felt a little ick factor with the hair in the tub. Otherwise I will absolutely recommend and stay at this gem again! Location is so convenient to all sorts of restaurants and sites and the subway. The people at the hotel go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
BOOKED MY STAY AT THE BENJAMIN HOWEVER THEY OVER-BOOKED AND ENDED UP SENDING ME TO AFFINA 50, WELL THIS PLACE WAS NOT GREAT. THE FRONT DESK ESPECIALLY THE MANAGER I DEALT WITH WAS RUDE & HAD A BAD ATTITUDE. IF YOU LIKE JERKS THIS IS THE HOTEL FOR YOUGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent quality and location"
Very nice hotel located in the UES with easy access to the subway. Quiet at night. Clean rooms, large comfortable bed and nice, new bathroom facilities. Would definitely stay at Affinia 50 again.Genuine Expedia guest review
I've stayed here twice in less than 2 months and have not been disappointed. It's a great hotel and the price is reasonable. The suite with the kitchen is pretty awesome. Beds are very comfortable. Great location too! The valet guys are wonderful!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel, cold showers"
This would be a 4 or 4+ hotel in my opinion were it not for the showers, which despite discussions with hotel staff and knowing how to work the overly confusing shower faucets, would never get truly 'hot'. My first night they were actually ice cold. Afterwards the highest I was ever able to get the showers to go was warm. Their laundry service also […] misplaced my laundry, causing me to be without the clean clothes I needed for a full day. Other than that, great, convenient location and a nice hotel and lobby. Staff is very friendly as well. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will definitely stay here again."
The room had just been renovated and was quite pleasant. Decent sized by NYC standards with a comfortable chair and a desk.Genuine Expedia guest review
By far one of the nicer places I have stayed...The people at the hotel could not have been friendlier and more accommodating. I would highly recommend this place. I had a jr suite and the room was tremendous...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nicely furnished boutique hotel, great common area"
Really wanted to like this hotel. Common areas (lobby and lounge on second floor) are beautiful. I thought room was great when I first walked in -- decent size for NY and modern furnishings. Hotel staff very friendly. However, as I am finding with boutique hotels lately, there are little things that come up. Toilet didn't flish when we first got there […] (they sent someone immediately to fix). Noise level from hallway outside our door and street were distracting (couldn't sleep one night due to big loud truck underneath our window). Second floor common area supposed to be stocked with cofee and tea, but it wasn't out when I was there and you had to go hunting in a cubpoard for it (and for cups), and no herbal teas. Two of the lamps in the room had switches that did not work very well. Using hotel blowdryer blew fuses in the room. Hole in baseboard area around tub. Hair on the countertop in the bathroom when I checked in. Tub slow draining. When the front desk ordered me a car to go to the airport, they didn't tell me at the time that the cost they quoted would be 10% more if I used a credit card. These were all fairly small things, but they add up so that I gave this hotel a 4 instead of a 5. The temperature in the room was great and everything else about the room was great. Away from hustle and bustle of Times Square and the Theater District, but within reasonable walking distance (10-15 minutes). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel close to Rockerfeller Center."
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Affinia 50. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was newly renovated and clean. Location is great for walking. I don't have a bad thing to say about this hotel!Genuine Expedia guest review
Good pricing given that it was Super Bowl weekend. Well located to everything, the room was large and well appointed with modern touches. Staff was friendly and helpful plus the pet charge wasn't exorbitant. I will definitely look to stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice, clean and great location"
Stayed for a week, to attend training in Lower Manhattan. Smallish, cozy hotel with ample roominess. Décor is modern but not painfully so, neighborhood is great if you like the Midtown East vibe. Proximity to Lex Ave subway line is great. They have no in-house restaurant, but room service is outsourced to a great Indian restaurant across the street […] (Mint). Very good value for the money. Only disappointment was having to pay $15 a night for poor performing Internet access. Hotels really need to enter the 21st Century with this practice and provide it gratis.

"Professional Friendly Staff - Nice Small Hotel"
This is a nice, smallish hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Great location. Dry-cleaning is 1 block away on 50th Street just across Second Avenue. Renovations were nearly finished when I was there and will make the hotel quite nice. I stayed one night in an upper penthouse room - very nice, highly recommended - like having your own apartment in […] mid-town. Other nights I stayed on the 5th floor, back. In this 5th floor room, there was a low level hum, perhaps due to a heater- it was very, very cold in the city at that time. The hum was ok for me, but could be a problem for some people. The staff will likely help you find a room that suits you, if the hotel is not sold out. Check-out the Noir bar and restaurant just a few doors down 50th Street toward Lexington. 151 East 50th Street. Had a nice time there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The Affinia 50 staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was a bit small and the bathroom was very small. Seems like the faucet on the sink should have been closer to the bowl. If the water was not turned on full force, the water spilled back onto the back of the sink. I had trouble getting a hot shower the first day but the next day just let the […] water run longer.

"Friendly staff, excellent location, beautiful!"
The Affinia 50 is such a wonderful hotel in a fantastic location with a great, incredible staff. Every person, from the concierge to the counter staff to the bag carriers was amazing and genuinely concerned about our stay. It is only a 10-minute walk from Rockefeller Center and 15 minutes from Times Square. The price was VERY reasonable, especially […] for the location, right around the corner from the Waldorf Astoria and walking distance from the subway. Our room had a king bed with great television and wonderful view of the city. Also, do not forget the free wine hour; it is between 5-6 and well worth it! My girlfriend and I WILL BE BACK!

"Best suites value in Manhattan"
Stayed the weekend visiting my kids. Junior suite was spacious and comfortable. Staff is always courteous and the location works well close to subway, Rock Center and restaurants in the area. I always stay here when in New York.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good location, great staff, rooms/amenities OK"
Hotel is in a great mid-town east location and the staff is wonderful. However, the lobby is undergoing renovations, the WiFi was iffy, showerhead/water pressure terrible, and the rooms were a bit clinical/dark/depressing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Our overall experience was good. Excellent staff that would help you as much as they could. The only problem was that the room service never refilled the shampoo and body wash for us.Genuine Expedia guest review
This hotel was absolutely great, it was afforable for the city. I went for my 30th birthday. It was close enough to all the night life but far enough from the congestion. The open wine hour, fast check in and the soft beds will definitely have me staying here when i come back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice boutique hotel located in Midtown"
great location. very nice decor & clean but a little small. Very nice Wine hour from 5-6 in the upstairs lounge type area was a nice nightly perk. elevators were very slow & small but we were told they are adding a 3rd elevator. Overall, good experienceGenuine Expedia guest review

Hotel was spacious and clean. Wine hour was nice as well. Renovations are currently ongoing but did not bother us. Staff was friendly but a little slow on parking your car.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great place to stay inMidtown Manhattan !"
Friendly staff and easy access to everything ! We were able to check out a little late because of our flight! Very friendly and accommodating hotel staff!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location but Very poor bathroom facilities."
A cramped tiny bathroom with a very small toilet where if #2 is squarely on the pot then #1 hangs out and vice versa! I was told that after a recent remodeling EVERY room in the hotel (they added 51 rooms) now has this inadequate toilet suitable only for children. Upon arrival one night table bulb was dead. I obtained a new one from the front desk, […] no big deal. A miswired outlet caused a breaker to trip when I plugged in my laptop--that's a more serious concern. The expensive internet service (provided through iBahn) died and was not restored until the next day.The shower water flow handle was installed 90-degrees off so when you turn on the water it crashes into the temperature control knob. All in all, not a pleasant room Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good mid-town location"
Very enjoyable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Affinia 50 is conveniently located in midtown Manhattan. It is currently the best value in the area with rooms near the size of a hotel room found in places other than New York. They even have a reception from 5:00 to 6:00 P.M.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was a great surprise and find of a hotel. My room was an excellent size for Manhattan with all of the features one requires (except bath robe). It occurred to me that this hotel is only a very few tweaks from a very luxurious hotel (such as better towels, robes, toiletries). There is a gym though the description doesn't include it - small but functional. […] Overall a real gem. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exceptionally clean and fresh"
This small hotel is light on the extras, but what a deal for the price. Brand new remodeling, and crisp rooms. The 5-6PM wine hour is a bonus, but don't arrive at 6:01PM. It's over! It is my hotel of choice for Midtown East.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Birthday Getaway to Midtown East NYC"
I booked a suite for a birthday getaway to NYC Midtwon East for my wife. Me met up with about 20 friends in our suite and there was more than enough room with the separate but small kitchen area for drinks and snacks. Only complaint is that I was expecting a separate bedroom and instead the bedroom was part of the suite. However the space easily housed […] our big group, including a couch and coffee table for seating. We had a great time in NYC and enjoyed bruch the next day. Parking in the area is very expensive however. The hotel offers a $60 valet parking which was actually a bagrain for the competition in the area. I would stay here again for a special occasion. Nice clean hotel, enjoyed the wine hour and service was very good overall. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed here this past weekend for a night and the service was great, we got upgraded upon arrival and everything was super clean. I also liked the fact that checkout is at noon and they have free wine from 5-6 in the lounge area. Would definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice hotel staff, very engaged and friendly. Staff demonstrated a high level of caring.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were only staying overnight because I had a medical procedure scheduled early the next day, but I intend to come back and stay longer when we can really enjoy it. The room was very nice and included a small kitchen which would be very useful for a longer stay. The hotel is well located near the subway and right in midtown. The price was very reasonable […] for this quality and location. I would definitely recommend it Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Currently Under renovation 1/2014."
Loud hammering begins at 0830. Drafty windows. Also a family on our floor was cooking what smelled like rotten seagulls. Everybody including the housekeepers were gagging. They oversprayed with febreeze which made it worse. I really like this hotel because it is a great concept and the amenities are great. Staff is excellent. Wait til renovations are […] complete.

"Great for midtown eastside meetings"
Great location with very nice accommodations with a great price. I was really happy. It had all the basics and then sum. The bed was comfortable on a snowy night in New York.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our room wasn't ready when we arrived and we were given another room which didn't have the promised mini-fridge. They changed it for us and our room was great. Bathroom was a little tight, but ok. Best view is overlooking 50th and 3rd ave. Staff was extremely helpful---gave us instructions for the subway, changed money for me, etc. Housekeeping people […] also very friendly and helpful. The happy hour from 5-6 was great! And very relaxing. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice, quite hotel in decent location."
Cleanliness of room/hotel: Despite reading reviews about on-going construction in hotel it looked very clean and without signs of construction other than the scaffolding on the outside of the hotel. Lobby looked clean as well. Our second floor room was renovated and seemed much bigger than on photos of Affinia50s website. Window in our room was overlooking […] the entrance of Affinia50, which was a busy street but with closed windows we had a complete silence in our room. Also having such unusual street view from a hotel room made it feel like we were staying at condo/apartment. Hotel had 2 elevators in lobby and a staircase leading to hotel lounge and guest rooms. It saved us time going-out as we didn't have to wait for an elevator and could use the "private" stairs. My only complaint is about the bathroom not having a shower hose. But it's more a cultural problem rather than a hotel problem. I would recommend this hotel to everyone. Quality of service: We arrived to hotel around 2 pm and got checked-in right away. Valet was fast. Check-out was smooth too. Hotel amenities: Room came with a standard empty mini bar fridge which was nice as we arrived to NYC by car and had our food prepackaged in glass containers. So we didn't have to bring our car cooler to the room. Hotel room also came with tv, blow dryer and coffee maker. Hotel location: Affinia50s location is great. 2 min walk to Starbucks, 5 min to Maddison ave, 10 min to Hillstone, 15 min to MOMA, 20 min to Times Square. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We have stayed here many times, but this was the first time since their recent renovation. We are drawn to the smaller, boutique hotels because of the service and fast check-in and check-out! The Affinia sets itself apart from many hotels because of its friendly, helpful staff. They just want you to enjoy yourselves, and they go above and beyond -- […] no matter how small your needs.

"Nice, New Hotel near Subway Station"
This is a great hotel - newly renovated, clean and friendly staff. The room I was assigned to was on the 9th floor. It was very clean and quiet (can hear occasional noise from the street - but it's midtown New York, normal). It has everything one would need for a room at this price range (coffee maker, mini fridge, and all the usual stuff). The hotel […] is one block away from subway (green line - #6). It's one stop to grand central if taking the subway. You can also easily walk to grand central on a nice day. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Check-in/check-out was speedy and easy. My only complaint is that wifi is not included in the room price. Breakfast is served on the 2nd floor with additional charge - but it didn't bother me as there are so many places to eat in NYC. Overall, it was a great hotel. I would definitely go back again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I reccommend Affinia 50 great location clean and friendly serviceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was under construction. The place was disgustingly dirty. Starting with the heaters that had inches of dirt and hadn't been cleaned since the renovations. The fire alarm went off in the middle of the night andGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed in the area before and was expecting a nicer hotel considering the price . Was pretty disappointed with the appearance of the room. There was construction going on and not being notified about it beforehand was pretty rude, instead compensating us with a cheap and tacky complimentary wine hour. The sheets were uncomfortable, table tops […] in the bathroom and end tables were dirty as well. Once again to much money for a mediocre stay, nothing special .
