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 .

Great location! The room was much larger than I expected. Clean, contemporary and quiet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My family and I stayed at Affinia 50 for 6 nights and we were very pleased with everything. We had an issue with our room and the staff took care of us promptly, changing and upgrading our room at no charge! One of their doormen named Rome was excellent! He always had a smile on his face, greeted us when we left and returned and went out of his way […] to help us any time we had questions. He is a great asset to the hotel! He is one of the reasons we will return to this hotel in the future! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not worth the price"
For what they are asking for a night, stay some where else in the neighborhood. It seems this place is trying to make a transformation to a more upscale option but has really only succeeded so far in upping the prices.Genuine Expedia guest review
All hotels in midtown Manhattan are expensive; however, in the rooms in the Affinia 50 you have plenty of space to move around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Under construction and terrible internet"
The staff were really great but one should know that the hotel is under construction so the lobby is a disaster and there is construction going on deep into the night and early in the morning. I got a good deal on the room but to be charged $14.95 for a promised 5MPBS connection and then have it so unstable and absolutely never even hitting 1 MPBS, […] was infuriating. I couldnt even use Skype with audio only! - forget video (what is it with NYC hotels and worthless and expensive internet connectivity?) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
close to good restaurants and walking distance to Broadway, Central Park and shoppingGenuine Expedia guest review
the hotel is under construction and it's a mess. the walls are paper thin you can hear everything in the adjoining rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was nice - the room was nice, the service was good. however, the entire hotel is ripped up for construction and this was not listed on the site when I purchased. I paid a high price for a nice hotel in a nice part of the city, and it looked armeggedon. There were construction workers everywhere, debris everywhere etc. While this didn't impact […] my room, it was noisy, and should have been listed on the site, and resulted in a dicounted price.

"Hotel is under construction"
The hotel is under construction. Luckly I was only staying 1 night for a wedding in town. Expedia should let people know that.Genuine Expedia guest review

i hate this hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Although the lounge was under construction which made it inaccessible, my stay was great!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bad, so badGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Upon arrival the first room given to me required walking through a major construction project with drywalling, plastic sheets, plaster dust everywhere and lots of workmen at 7PM. I immediately requested another room, away from construction. There was some resistance, but then they gave me another room. It is hard to keep construction dust out of carpets, […] drapes, etc. The drapes were dirty. So the room did not feel clean. I like Affinia, so was disappointed. At no time when booking with Expedia was I informed of the major construction. The rate wasn't low enough to make allowance for the construction. Good location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel, but wait til construction is over"
I've been to the Affinia 50 before and found it to be a decent, affordable hotel for business trips. I'm not in the room much, so all I really need is a clean room, decent water pressure in the shower, a bit of insulation from traffic noise and maybe a usable business center. I was very surprised to find they are remodeling now, with all the noise, […] dust and dislocation that entails. I asked about printing a document and they said I should walk over to a sister property. This was not disclosed, or it was in the fine print, when I booked the room on Hotels.com. If you're going on a short business trip--check in at 3, check out at 6 a.m.--not a big deal. If you're going with your family, wait until the construction is over.

"Loud, dirty, and uncomfortable"
The place is under construction. I would assume at night they would stop construction, but NO WAY why would they do that? The work outside my window wasn't done until midnight. Think of jack hammers outside your room until midnight after a 5am flight + a 12 hour work day. They have really small elevators with all service traffic running through them. […] You will have to wait in line to go to your room when someone is delivering anything to the hotel, employees moving lamps and furniture around floors, and construction workers. I would never stay at this place again for the price I paid for the room, with the neglect shown, I would have rather stayed anywhere else. Not worth the 4.2 stars, maybe a 2.

"Awful sleeping conditions"
I was on the 2nd floor by the street and the outside NOISE was unbearably loud. Without ear plugs no human being could've slept-- in the absence of serious medication! I got no sleepGenuine Expedia guest review
"Under Construction, gross"
The hotel was (still is) under construction, which was not stated ANYWHERE when we booked the hotel. At first they put us in a room right next to where the main 'office' for the construction workers is, then they switched us to a room that was essentially under construction itself. The entire hotel was a construction site, no front lobby, dust everywhere, […] limited elevator access, it was awful. They didn't offer to comp the price, or upgrade them room when we explained we didn't know there was construction going on. Then when I asked if we could have a late check-out they refused. Horrible, never going back even when construction is done. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Midtown hotel under construction"
I have stayed here before several times, and this was a terrible experience. Thy are under construction, and our flier was filled with dust. Carpet was covered in plastic, and we waited 5 rounds for an elevator due to construction crew. Never again under construction.Genuine Expedia guest review
Due to construction stay was not pleasant. Tiny bathroom and tiny elevators. Noise of construction continuous. Won't recommend for the price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I am a returning guest with very good previous experiences. When I booked, there war a mention that the hotel was undergoing renovation, but when I arrived, the hotel was in shambles. The next morning when I complained to the front desk, the very nice receptionist went to inform the manager who then didn't even have the courtesy to come out and speak […] to me directly, instead offering us a token upgrade the next time we booked. I was not looking for anything other than the opportunity to express my dissatisfaction directly to management. Very disappointing! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wait until renovation completed!!! Maybe Feb. 2014"
Initial room, while nice, had strong smell of solvents due to renovation. Also, extremely noisy due to equipment in use. Upgraded room much better, higher floor, and Krissie at front desk was very accommodating.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location of the hotel is good. Since the hotel is under construction, it's understandable that the hotel is dirty. However, my husband and I found stains on the bed sheet, and we had to change room. In the other room, a clump of dust came down from the bathroom ventilation fan and the shower curtain smells. We're definitely not coming back to this […] hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Affinia 50 PRETTY BAD"
This hotel may ruin your experience. The elevators are SLOOOOOW it is so annoying. They are under renovations and the workers blast the music at 7 am and talk very loudly. There is no reason for you to stay here. the rooms are not bad but the lobby, the staff and just about everything else is horrible.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice ... Great location"
Newly renovated ... Clean and comfortable. Cleanliness is a priority in any hotel and this was clean and affordable and walking distance to just about anything u need. Great seafood and oyster house called Docks a few blocks away and shops and a short cab ride to everything!! Will definitely stay again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in perfect location"
The hotel has a great location. But at least during the refurbishment, the stay was sometimes not as perfect as it could be.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel under reconstruction"
The Hotel was under reconstruction and really should not be accommodating guests especially at over $320 per night. The noise, dust, dirt etc was unbearable, also a burst water main so the water in the room was brown. The hotel offered free wine for an hour between 5pm and 6pm but even then they forgot to put the white wine in the fridge and asked you […] to wait for 15 minutes if you wanted a glass of wine. Overall a bad experience, the hotel on Expedia should have CLEARLY stated the condition of the Hotel. Will no longer use Expedia as we feel we wasted $650 and a bad experience for a weekend we looked forward to in NY Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Another good stay"
Despite renovations that are ongoing the staff at the Affinia 50 hotel did another great job to make my stay pleasant and productive. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Renovated room was huge!!! Clean and modern. Front desk staff are not pleasant or helpful. However cleaning staff and door men are extremely friendly and helpful. Hotel is under renovation at this time. Sleeping in is not an option since they start drilling at 8am. Location is great. Walking distance to everything NYC has to offerGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice Location, but hotel under construction"
The hotel is currently under construction and is a mess. While we were in a newly renovated junior suite, the bathroom is tiny... so tiny I am not sure anyone over average build or 5'7" could fit. Also, the bathroom was not clean and the maid service did not check the level of bath products mounted in the shower... our shampoo was empty for our visit. The […] beds are great and the rest of the room was quite spacious. The construction going on is hopefully short lived and there will once again be a lobby area. Also, while we were out all day, the work going on began at 8am and was quite loud. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great staff, great rooms"
We spent only two nights at the Affinia, but it was great. The building was still being renovated, but we weren't negatively impacted by it at all. I booked a suite, but it was not available due to the remodeling. The hotel gave us two adjoining rooms, both remodeled, and it was heaven! We were shocked at the size and really feel we had one of those […] special moments where you just breathe and go with it. Separate rooms for us and the kids? Awesome. It was very nice that the staff said "welcome home" when we returned. It was obviously a customer service training thing, but it was natural and very effective. They also recognized us and engaged the kids, which was great. Overall, a lovely experience. My husband and I are returning alone for an anniversary trip and we're already considering the Affinia!

"Comfortable rooms for a family"
Despite the hotel being under construction and some chaos in the lobby at check in and check out, we had a pleasant stay. Our junior suite was pleasant and roomy. We overlooked the chaos because our room was terrific! We look forward to returning once the renovations of the lobby and common areas are complete.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was great but our room was off the main road, 3rd ave and there were a lot of car honking going on even in late at night. That explains the ear plugs in the drawer. Noise was pretty annoying....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Terrible stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location not far from Grand Central"
Nice location, 50th St. near 3rd Av. Not far from Grand Central. We were on the 4th floor, and as the A/C fan was rather distant from the bed, it did not effectively drown out the noise from the street and thus the room was a bit too noisy for sleeping well. Very clean, very large and very comfortable bed, very large room, really excellent shower. No […] free wi-fi in room, we did especially request a coffee maker in the room and promptly received one. Very friendly and very effective hotel staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Decent Affinia Property"
Fantastic hotel staff. Service was great. Location was fantastic. Building going through renovation would've liked to have known ahead of time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is under substantial renovation. Room booked was not available. Noise in room from construction was unbearable. Had to be moved. In new room, air did not work properly, called maintenance four times, shower hardly powered on and toilet would not flush. Toilet was fixed after one day. Elevators used by construction crew caused delays, soiled elevator. […] Bad scene. Might be nice when finished. Hotels.com seemed not to know about this renovation. Should be done by September.

"Excellent Service & Family Friendly"
We arrived with 4 tired, hot kids at check-in time. When the desk clerk was unable to get confirmation that our room was ready - she quickly changed our room. Housekeeping was also timely with taking care of requests. Would highly recommend and will stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location but beware of hotel room constructio"
The hotel is undergoing a renovation until the fall. We stayed in an unrefurbished room. It was a double queen so the room was large but bathroom really, really small. Decor average but the beds very comfortable. Location great for our shopping needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The staff was great and friendly. Only compliant- all signs and notifications in the hotel indicate that construction work was being completed Monday thru Friday, however, Saturday morning drilling at 8am was the morning wake up call.Genuine Expedia guest review
I expected the room to be small based on the description, but it was not at all. The lounge on the second floor is nice. Room was clean. The hotel was in a great location. Overall I would say this hotel was a good find in the city and I would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
