"Great place to stay"
Staff was really great. Great location. The only bad thing was I saw a few ants in the bathroom and the facade has been under construction for over a year. We got an amazing free upgrade to a huge suite.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location to Subway and business office."
Staff was very friendly, room location kept city noises outside, housekeeping kept all as requested as extra towels, coffee. Close to subway. Missed the wine hour due to work. Will be back anytimeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice, but not worth the price"
I went in search of a hotel trying to pamper myself for a single night in NYC. What I got was mediocre. The rooms were clean, the staff very helpful, but the overall experience was in no way commensurate with the price. The view out the window was into a brick wall, made worse by the large scaffolding obscuring the window. The bedroom was nice, with […] a large, comfy bed. The bathroom, however, was rather small, with a cramped shower and a showerhead that only came up to my nose. Also, when spending this much on a room, you wouldn't expect to have to pay a rather unreasonable additional charge just for some cheap breakfast service (muffins and the like).

The rooms were small the bathroom was very small not enough mirrors.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent choice for quality at reasonable cost"
Drink hour is a bonus. Staff all very helpful - doorman especially friendly (kids loved him). Computer access in reception should be free for guests but overall a great stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Why is this rated so high?"
It's not as nice as I thought it would be for the price. The lobby is wholly unimpressive. The 2nd floor lounge looks cool from the elevator photos but nothing special. The rooms are fine, nothing special. The shower was nice, but the bathroom overall was mediocre. My friend stayed at the W around the corner--her rate was just slightly lower and the […] lobby and lobby bar and room were significantly nicer. Next time I guess.

"great location; would recommend to anyone"
I have stayed at other Affinia's and find them to be quiet, clean, and well run. I had absolutely no problems, the beds are so comfortable, the rooms are very quiet. The staff is attentive and I will definately stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Affinia 50 above our expectations."
This hotel is a gem. We enjoyed everything about it - service, people, hotel room, location, ammenities, lounge. It was a great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a great location of Midtown East and has good subway access. The whole hotel was recently remodeled so everything appeared new. When we first checked in our initial room had a very stale and slightly moldy smell. The front desk however quickly gave us a new room which was much better. The bed was comfortable and the "pillow bar" was […] a nice touch. The hotel has a large and comfortable lounge area and daily wine tasting. One suggestion would be to have some variety of wines available as it was the same wine every day that we were there. Overall great stay and I would definitely consider staying here again!

My daughter and I walked everywhere with ease. It was great to find the ear plugs in the night stand drawer, a very nice touch. The hotel isn't loud, but NYC is! Our beds were very comfortable and the hotel was clean and inviting. We had a car arranged for the airport in under five minutes. The staff is very friendly and efficient. I would stay here […] again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great in every way"
Room large, nice furniture, quiet, and cool (summer stay). Blackout shades. Personnel A#1. Very clean and comfortable. Bed & pillows fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location and beautiful room. However, I did find it hard to believe that they charge $15 a day for Wi-Fi in the rooms, with it being free only in the lounge and lobby. I didn't think any hotel does that anymore, and for the prices charged per night, free Wi-fi throughout should be a given. That was my only complaint in an otherwise lovely sta […] y.

"New York trip 2014"
The pictures of the hotel were not respresentative. The hotel and it's rooms were much much smaller than advertised. Before we even got to our room, another patron warned us that the air conditioning in the rooms were less than adequate. Upon arriving in our room, the A/C was set on 66 degrees and the room temperature read 70 degrees. This was not even […] close as the rrom felt to be around 78-80 degrees. We called the front desk and they sent up a maintenance man that said the A/C had eben out earlier that day. He then proceeded to make adjustments to the unit by opening the valves that allow more freeon to flow. He also said that adjusting the thermostat woould not make a differance as the A/C system was centrally controlled by the hotel. So sweating after taking a shower or trying to get ready inthe mornings made it miserable for me and my family. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The bedroom excellent. I love the location. The service was not very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
While the hotel was just ok, your staff was amazing! From the manager, front text, doorman, cleaning woman, they were all fantastic, friendly, helpful, and beyond!Genuine Expedia guest review
"No amenities at Affinia 50"
Rude check-in person. No room service. I was told there was tea in meeting room but there was none. Everything that was asked for was answered with a "no" except a terrycloth robe and different pillows which took 3 trys. I felt like I was staying at a Motel 6Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Front Desk and Doorman were the highlights"
For the price of New York, this is your best bet. The staff were particularly attentive and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very helpful. Our room was promised to us at 2pm when calling the day before arriving to confirm our reservation. When we arrived at noon we were delighted to find our room ready as we expected to have to wait around for it. We had 2 queen beds and the room was large for NYC standards. Very comfortable beds! The hotel hosts a wine hour from […] 5-6pm with complimentary wine. Nice feature. It was pretty crowded. The only 2 drawbacks I found was free Wi-Fi was only available in the lobby and lounge areas. Secondly, the tub area of the bathroom was not very clean. (That is the reason I gave the room cleanliness a 3 above.) The rest of room was fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff was great. Very welcoming. The hotel was advertised as suites. Ours did not have the kitchenette we were expecting. The room was very small for 2 adults and 2 children. Otherwise, enjoyableGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very good location, poor customer service"
When my sister and I arrived the lady working the front desk was not the most pleasant or helpful with information. We asked about bike rentals at Central Park and things to do but she couldn't give us any suggestions. We also got tickets for a show through the concierge who was not very helpful with suggestions of where to go or things to do. The evening […] cocktail hour was nice and the two women working were nice too. We would have forgotten about the happy hour had it not been for the doorman who was nice and mentioned it as we got into the elevator as he was getting out. The elevator posted the weather but the dates did not match the days. I made a cup of coffee that first evening we stayed, a Thursday, and that cup of leftover coffee was still there the day I left on Monday. One of the days the cleaning service forgot a floor mat for the shower so the floor was wet. Also, the boiler had gone out and we were not informed until I called front desk to ask why we had no hot water. I left a pair brand new pair of sandals there and called from the airport to inform them. They said they found them and would send them but it has been a week and I still haven't received them. The lady I spoke with from housekeeping was very nice. The area was VERY awesome as it was close to so many things but they need to step-up that customer service a bit.

"Solid Midtown East location - Great Value"
The Affinia 50 was a very welcoming place. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating, welcoming guests home every time they walked into the hotel. I was on a family vacation so this was an ideal location in Midtown, not far from some of the best shopping and dining in the city. Great location for anyone that prefers to walk the city or ride […] the subways. The rooms were comfortable with space and plenty of room for storage, but the bathroom was a little small. The wine happy hour is a nice touch. Would definitely recommend staying here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
great location, would stay there againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Our stay was nearly perfect - the hotel location was excellent, room was clean and comfy, and the hotel club room has really nice facilities to relax in. It would have been perfect though if the room came with complimentary wifi and a microwave.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Gem in the Heart of Manhattan"
There are so many hotels in Manhattan and we were so pleased to find the Affinia 50. The fully renovated room was exceptionally clean and well maintained. The staff was remarkably cordial and welcoming to us. And, finally, the location could not have been better. We were a short walk from Rockefeller Center, 5th Avenue, 42nd Street, Grand Central Station, […] and so many other attractions including Radio City Music Hall. If you get the chance to stay here, grab that bull by the horns and rodeo!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room surprising large for NYC, friendly staff."
Was amazed at how large the room was; didn't expect that for NYC. Newly remodeled, very clean, staff was amazing - friendly, professional, helpful. The room wasn't ready at 3pm (check-in) time, but I wasn't in a hurry. Staff provided location of restaurants nearby. They stored my luggage for free (I had read reviews for other hotels that charge for […] this service that should always be free). The staff called me when room was ready; about an hour later. I couldn't believe how large the room was. Many NYC reviews state that hotel rooms are very small. Affinia 50 was huge! There was a bottle of wine and chocolate cake waiting in the room. So sweet!

"Trendy small hotel"
Staff super nice. Nice decor and good location. The second floor is a great meeting spot for wine hour. The only issue is the shortage of elevators. Use the staircase if you're in a lower level. Overall 4 star hotel with great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great small hotel on E. 50th NYC"
We loved the Affinia 50 and thank Hotels.com for finding it for us. It is in a great location on E. 5oth st. and 3rd ave.,near Rockafeller Center, great restaurants and museums, as well as shopping (Saks Fifth Ave. and all the great boutiques. ) Also a good location between Christies and Sothebys auctions we were attending. The Affinia 50 is charming, […] clean, great service, outstanding friendly staff, pretty newly remodeled rooms, wine tasting every evening, good breakfast available etc. We will definitely stay there next time we are in New York.

Hooking up with several couples for the weekend, and this was a great location. It was kind of pricy for a weekend stay, so I'd check elsewhere to see what else might be available at lower prices.Genuine Expedia guest review

"great location and comfy bed"
This hotel was in a great midtown location and had a great room with a wonderful bed. I was only there one night so didn't have a chance to try the club room but I did see it and others were taking advantage of this perk. My one issue was the lack of support at the front door trying to pull the car up and unload on a busy NYC street. No one greeted […] me or helped with my suitcase or offered to take care of the car. I was told to move the car by the person that did speak with me while he tried to get another client a cab. I had to put my luggage back into my car, get back into the car, and move it, before getting back out and remove my luggage again. I then went inside, checked in, and asked about having my car garaged. Then had to wait for the person to come take my key and give me a receipt. The front desk upgraded my room which may have been in response to that issue but I don't know why they upgraded my room. I did have a kitchen in the room and the room was comfortable and well appointed. I had no need for the kitchen as this was a one night stay but if I was in town for a few days it would have been a great perk. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff very friendly and helpful. Welcomed us "home" when returning from visiting sites in the great city of New York!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband, my daughter and I had a wonderful 4 nights at the Affina 50. They had the best customer service I have EVER experienced. One of the bellhops in particular was extremely nice to us ( I think his name was Ivey)? My husband wasn't feeling well when we arrived, and he gave him a hand getting in and out of the car. The room was HUGE with 2 Queen […] beds. The last time we had stayed in Manhattan, our room at another hotel was tiny. The 2nd Floor lounge was also very large and comfortable for 5 O'clock free wine and breakfast in the am, coffee, tea, water all day! Definitely recommend! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Comfy Beds, Suspicious Alarms, Rushed Housekeeping"
First off - great stay! The beds were comfortable. Enough space to accommodate four adults and their weekend luggage. The doorman staff was consistently helpful and friendly. We booked two rooms. Clean, although our our tub was showing wear with chipped paint, and the other room had a broken vent that set-off the fire alarm. Later than usual check-out: […] noon. However, the day of check-out the housekeeping is anxious to see that you're out. They knocked repeatedly on our doors before the check-out time. (We left the room with ten minutes to spare.) One thing I found annoying: We stayed Friday and Saturday night. BOTH rooms had their alarms go off the morning of check-out (one for 6 AM, the other for 7 AM) - without anyone in the room setting it! I find this suspicious that the alarm only went off the morning of check-out. It was an early alarm, and we weren't familiar with how to turn off the alarms when the unexpectedly went off. (When looking at it later, we couldn't find a day feature, that allowed you to set it only Sunday. It must be set every day.) Just made for an annoyingly early start after a late Saturday night. If you book a room here, you'll enjoy your stay - just double-check the alarm clock the night before you are expected to check-out. Also, recommend staying in lower floor levels. The elevators are SLOW. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Business in NY"
Generally positive but had to take a room on 2nd floor which is not ideal since it's also the floor for an extended lobby/lounge. Could get noisy at times.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Amazing staff and excellent room"
I was looking for a hotel in Manhattan for my parents to stay in while they visited me. I was a little nervous as I wanted to make sure their stay was as pleasant as possible, and I didn't know much about New York hotels. Affinia seemed to be a good balance between cost and ratings/positive reviews. My parents ended up paying around $240 per night (not […] terrible for Manhattan). They had an absolutely fantastic stay at Affinia and were very said to leave it behind! Their room was spotless, large and extremely comfortable, the location was perfect, but above all, the staff were amazing. So so so friendly and courteous. It really made the entire stay memorable for them. I will be recommending Affinia 50 to everyone who comes to visit me in the future! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
we really liked the fact that it was at a convenient location, yet around the corner from Lexington, so it was quiet at night. There was construction/remodeling going on, so there was no view out of our window, but it was not a problem. Since this was a girls weekend getaway, the wine happy hour each day was a hit. The beds were very comfortable and […] the room was very nicely decorated. The room was actually a little bigger than I expected, though the bathroom was small, a challenge for four women. We made it work, as there were plenty of mirrors to work with in the room. Another nice touch was a small refrigerator and coffee maker. Would come back again!

Overall nice hotel with clean, modern look. Very friendly bellstaff and housekeepers. Wine hour is a nice touch, and very well attended. Though some front desk staff were helpful, one young man in particular was a bit rude upon checkout. A disappointing ending to an overall good stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice midtown hotel. No AC."
Hotel was fine, but the AC wasn't turned on in the building and it was 92 degrees in the room at one point. I complained and they told me to open a window and they sent up a box fan.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OK, but not great."
Stay was ok. Staff is wonderful - very friendly. Location is perfect! Décor is nice - updated & modern. However, for the price, there should have been deadbolt locks on the doors, the air conditioning should have worked properly and the room should have been dusted. Nice, but definitely not a 4.5 out of 5, especially not for the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
