"Great Hotel in a Great Location."
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We recently took a bus load of people for a Christmas in the city experience and stayed at the Affinia. The hotel was very nice, staff was very friendly, and the rooms were pretty big for NYC rooms. The hotel also had a nice restaurant and bar. Overall, excellent experience.
Verified Review, stayed from Sat Dec 06 to Sun Dec 07 2014 at a $379.00 group rate.
"Not my best hotel experience but the employees worked very hard to ensure guests are happy."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
During my eight day stay at the hotel I stayed in three rooms. All of the rooms had air conditioners that were in serious need of cleaning, the vents and filters were filthy. At one point we asked for maintenance to come and change the filter, they did but the air conditioner was still dirty. The worker took a dry rag and tried to wipe off the dirt which only helped to spread the dust. I being a COPD sufferer went into crisis from all the dust and mould. The last room we were in was somewhat better but we took it on our selves to clean the two A/C's ourselves. We literally washed the filter and cleaned them with wet soapy wash cloths. Hotel is in an excellent location if you want to be close to the sights but the cleaning staff need to go a little bit further than vacuuming the rugs and changing the beds. The hotel is on a busy city street, the carbon monoxide is coming up from the streets. Please clean your A/C units at least once a week.
Verified Review, stayed from Wed Jul 02 to Thu Jul 10 2014 at a $320.00 average nightly rate.
