Gardens Suites Hotel by Affinia

New York, USA

The hotel

In a quiet corner of New York, but close enough to the sights not to have to bother hailing a yellow cab, Gardens Suites Hotel by Affinia is a rare refuge from the Big Apple buzz. Hidden away on a tree-trimmed road on the Upper East Side, you can escape to the chic calm of your suite, where homely comforts include your own kitchen, and luxuries include grocery and breakfast deliveries. Downstairs, the Serenity Lounge’s complimentary Tea Bar has a bespoke blend laced with chamomile, citrus and vanilla designed to soothe you (and that ubiquitous New York ‘caw-fee’ to perk you back up). When you do fancy some Manhattan exuberance, just grab one of the free bikes and follow the hotel’s sightseeing app and you’ll soon find yourself in nearby Central Park, Museum Mile, or Bloomingdale’s.

We stayed at Gardens NYC after my arm surgery. Chris was incredibly helpful. He made himself available, and was always willings to assist. Nigel was knowledgable-very helpful at the front desk. We experienced professionalism, and kindness throughout our stay. The room was clean. It had a great setup, and had everything we needed for me to recuperate comfortably. The only downside was that we ate takeout for every meal. The places we ordered from delivered, but the food was not good. There is a supermarket around the corner, but we could not go, so we were dependent on local takeout- disappointing. Food issues aside, the hotel was great! Read less

Everything was EXCELLENT except that I called the front desk at 5:30pm on Friday to request that sheets and blanket be provided for our sofa bed and when we returned to the room at 11:00pm they had not been provided. I then called the front desk and received the sheets and blanket in 10 minutes which was very responsive.

To: Joe Rauer, General Manager, Garden Suite Hotel Hi Joe, I want to start off by thanking you for making our most recent experience at the Garden Suites very memorable. Upon arrival we were greeted by Sal, the bellman, who welcomed us back and provided a very high level of customer service. You are fortunate to have someone like him being the "point person" at the hotel. You also might be interested that I just took your survey and rated our stay a 10 on all of the categories. The only negative during our stay was the weather (rain & cold) which did not allow us to use the outside patio. Thanks again for turning lemons into lemonade. We look forward to our next stay at the Garden Suite. Since you did such a great job booking our suite, can I contact you the next time we are in town to handle our reservation? :)) Best regards, Joe & Margaret Laffin Read less
