"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
"Very good hotel and wonderful location"
I've stayed at Affinia 50 already twice and would stay there again without any doubt!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to subway"
A lot of noise while we stayed, the hotel condition is well, but the price is a little bit unfriendlyGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel and location"
Great location, nice accommodations at a fair price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good alternative to the major brands"
Location was the best part of the stay, after finding out I couldn't get a room at my regular spot on lex ave. The elevators were the most negative thing about the hotel. Slow and small.Genuine Hotels.com 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
The rooms were smaller than I expected, but it's Manhattan, right? Considering the location, the price was great and most of all, everyone at the hotel was super-friendly and helpful....excellent services!Genuine 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
"Would definitely stay again!"
Very clean. Nicely and creatively designed. Very helpful staff and good location.Genuine Hotels.com 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
Everything about this hotel was great. The lobby was a little small, but it was a boutique hotel so we weren't expecting it to be grand. It was a little noisy at night but we were on the ninth floor in New York City on the corner of 51st and Lexington so it was to be expected. The main reason I would not recommend this hotel is because the management […] has taken it upon themselves to set the air conditioning temperature. While it was 40° during the morning and night and about 65° during the day, our room was warm and muggy. Although I turned the air conditioning thermostat down to 66, it didn't do any good. When I contacted the front desk to tell them I thought there was an issue with our air-conditioning unit, I was told that the entire hotel system was turned off because the outside temperatures didn't warrant having on air conditioning or heating. The solution offered was for me to open my windows and we were provided with a box fan. Of course, with the windows open, the noise was much worse. Also, there is a nightclub called Noir downstairs and next door. Between 10 PM and 4 AM there were about 200 people on the sidewalk smoking cigarettes and making noise. The smoke came into our room through the open windows and the noise was enough to keep Rip van Winkle awake. While I very rarely complain about a hotel stay, it struck me as very odd that a place which seemed to have all of the other necessaries couldn't manage to allow its guests to set their own room tempera Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Liked the location of the hotel, was disappointed with the bathroom amenities. The two days out of 4 night we stayed, they did not provide wash clothes. Hand lotion was provided only the first day and was not available again. There was no magnifying mirror, which is very essential for female guests. We tried to borrow umbrella for the day, since it […] was going to rain and had to make a deposit, never had that experience from any other hotel. Overall it left a very cheap taste. Corridors were not clean, there was some kind of trash all the time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel was full while we stayed. The entire hotel has 2 small elevators and we spent most of our time waiting for elevators which just never came. WE finally started walking down 10 flights but it was irritating. Also, the maid service knocked while we were still in the room and we asked them to come back in an hour, which they did not. So although […] great location, I would not recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Two night stay was wonderful. Hotel is clean, staff was friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"No Complaints, Great Room, Friendly Staff"
We had a Jr. Suite. I don't think I could have found a better deal in a Great NYC Neighborhood. The Hotel is surrounded by other upscale hotels. There are good restaurants within blocks. The Staff was incredibly friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel and I will definitely stay there.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Unusually large room for manhattan we had two double beds and a decent size bathroom. It was good not to feel cramped. The spa shower was a nice touch I didn't expect. I liked having a refrigerator and the wine hour was great, they served generous and good quality wines.Genuine Expedia guest review
"front desk rude. didnt get what i booked"
front desk staff was rude in general and i booked a junior suite on expedia which comes with 2 queens and a pull out but i got one king and a pull out. not what i paid for. dont know whos fault it is but i wont be using expedia or staying at this place againGenuine Expedia guest review
I checked in for a 4 day stay and was placed in a 2nd floor room. I asked for a room on a higher floor but told none were available. The walls are thin so you can hear your neighbors opening/shutting doors all day and night in addition on the 2nd floor you can hear street noise and noise from the lobby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel was fantastic! From the moment we drove up, the hotel staff impressed. The doorman/bellhop/valet was extremely friendly and helpful giving suggestions for surrounding area restaurants, as well as giving hotel history (the hotel was once apartments that were converted, which explains how roomy our room was) The room was clean, spacious, boasting […] 2 queen beds and a small kitchen and private bathroom. All decor was new and fresh, 2nd floor lounge was great area to hang out in for free wifi and coffee/tea and wine (5-6pm). Very close to restaurants and shops and subway. No worries about safety even coming home after 2am with 2 kids in tow. There was city noise, but I have had that at all hotels in the city and the hotel include ear plugs in the drawers for convenience :) Highly recommend this place, we will definitely come back!

nice size room for a New York City hotelGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location, but wouldn't recommend."
This hotel is located right on E 50th and Lexington, so the location is great, but overall I would not recommend this hotel. We arrived to the hotel at 9pm on a Thursday and were told that our room was not ready yet (check in is at 3pm). We then explained that we needed our room right away because we had dinner plans, at which point they "found" a room […] that was ready. It took an hour to have anything delivered to the room (bathrobes, towels, you name it) and the front desk was actually noticeably annoyed that we called to check on the status of our towels. There are many other hotels in the area that have much better customer service!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not what it used to be"
Excited to come back after a few years for a special occasion. We have good memories of this hotel that didnt repeat themselves this time around. Unfortunately the bathroom (toilet) was dirty, the hot water took forever to warm up, the noise in the hallways unbearable all night long, the street noise (not the hotel's fault) a continuos drone of garbage […] trucks , fire sirens, and party goers from the club next door. Too many choices in NYC to feel another chance is warranted. One plus is that it's a pet friendly hotel and I was told the $25 fee goes to the ASCPA, although one person at the desk couldn't confirm.

"I'd give Affinia 50 a 9 out of 10"
My husband and I had a great time. The hotel staff was more than friendly and David, the concierge went above and beyond to make us feel important and give us suggestions that were geared to us! Every evening from 5-6 the hotel has a social hour in the lobby and it's a great way to unwind before gearing up for the evenings events. It's fun to see the […] other guests and a perfect time to interact with the concierge too. The rooms were comfortable and stylish and we were easily within walking distance to Times Square, Rockefeller Plaza, Central Park and only a block and a half away from the Lexington and 51st subway station...loved our experience! We'll be back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Nice size junior suite. clean and comfortable. Hotel in great loation with a lot of resturants to choose from and shopping close by.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good deal, well located and cozy rooms"
All was perfect and I am not giving a overall rating 5 because the hotel charges for internet access (it seems to me a sort of a disease in most of the hotels) and because they charge for the breakfast; that invites you to leave the hotel and go for a cheaper breakfast or a fanciest one. Apart for this the rest was perfect and the wine hour is a very […] good idea, not to mention that it is very pleasant. No complaints. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not much sleep"
Great hotel, perfect location, no sleep. Sadly there is a police and fire station next to the hotel. Very loud all night...the hotel knows this and they provide ear plugs for each room. Since I was in town for work sleep was important to me so I don't think I will stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
