Reviewed 23 September 2014

As an apartment conversion you get amenities (kitchen, separate sitting room) not found in most NYC hotels. It is functional, clean and the staff is very good.The Lex Ave subway is close, lots of nearby restaurant choices and handy to many midtown attractions. We use Affinia Gardens all the time.

Fabulous one bedroom suite, staff very helpful and friendly (including Kris the bellman)! So easy to get anywhere in NYC by Metro - one block away. Great shopping nearby - Bloomingdales, Sephora, etc! Walk to Central Park, Madison Ave, 5th Ave, Lexington Ave. Some fab restaurants nearby - try Felidia's (exquisite Italian) 243 East 58th St NYC.

This is perfect if you want quiet. No real lobby or restaurant, not a party or mingling place. Suggest this for travelers just needing a nice comfortable place to stay. Staff is great.

Love the gigantic apartment style rooms with kitchens. We stayed here for a weekend conference and loved the location -- close to yummy food, fun museums and while it's a bit of a trek to midtown, it is a fun walk! I think my favorite hotel in Manhattan.

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighbourhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
