Fifty Hotel and Suites by Affinia

Midtown, New York

The hotel

Relax in the large Club Room and Den at this boutique hotel before experiencing the vibe of a superb location in Midtown Manhattan, a contemporary neighbourhood filled with rich traditions, two blocks from The Rockefeller Center, Times Square, The Theatre District, Fifth and Madison Avenues Shopping, popular eateries and Manhattan’s most famous landmarks. They’ve splashed $19 million on a refurb getting ready for your stay, with otherwise seductively sedate Studios and Suites featuring full kitchens. The arty vibe continues throughout the hotel, a collection of paintings, sculptures, photos and eclectic treasures by local New York artists. Downstairs, you’ll find guests hanging out in The Club Room enjoying Continental breakfast which is available for purchase and hotel guests are invited to the complimentary daily Wine Hour from 5:00 – 6:00 pm.

As good as the facilities were. I was most impressed with the Customer Service. I appreciated being greeted at the front door with a "Welcome Home" each time I returned and was also served so well at the Front Desk by Jasmine. I had a coupe specific questions/issues with my bill that she addressed and resolved on the spot! Every team member I encountered had a smile and a friendly greeting for me. Read less

The hotel is in a good location. The staff is very nice, helpful and very attentive to their guests. The room was very clean, a must for our travels, and we enjoyed the free beverages on the second floor, a very nice touch!

With 4 ladies, it was difficult to get ready in comparison to other hotels we have stayed in. The bell hop was amazing! We checked our bags with them after checking out and even left our expensive shopping purchases with no issues at all. Overall, I would stay here again. Read less

I have stayed at this hotel three times now. We drove from Boston so it is great because it is right off of the FDR highway. Very easy to get to - just valet up to the front, give them my car and off I go. The staff was wonderful, in particular was the bellman Rome. He was so personable and extremely helpful. The rooms were a generous size… Read more
