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.

Stayed here after surgery, directly opposite Manhattan Eye and Ear Could not have been treated better Suite was spacious and spotless Location in a prime area, not far from Bloomies as well as other shops Would recommend without hesitation to anybody staying in the NYC area. Not only for hospital patients and their families.

Great hotel within walking distance to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Clinic. One bed efficiency suite was perfect! The bed was super comfy, the kitchenette was great, the bath was perfect for two people to share and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They made an extremely anxious trip to NYC a pleasure.

The front desk staff upgraded me on arrival & made sure I had the special “hospital” rate.

The Gardens Suites provided a wonderful stay for me when I travelled to NYC to visit a family member in the hospital. The front desk staff upgraded me on arrival & made sure I had the special “hospital” rate. The suite I was upgraded to was so spacious - living room, dining room, full kitchen, 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Although there is no restaurant onsite, Gardens has an agreement with 4 restaurants for quick, in-room delivery (just like room service). There is also a small store to buy water, soda, snacks etc. A CVS is located less than 100 yards away and there are many other places to eat. I would recommend this hotel for families visiting the city as well as families needing accommodations near NY Presbyterian Weill Cornell and Memorial Sloan Kettering. Read less
