Gardens Suites Hotel by Affinia

Upper East Side, New York

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.

Love the wine tasting evening that was hosted once a week. Bottles of wine were at the reception for guests to help themselves, free of charge. Not much else to stay, I spent most of my time away from the hotel, exploring NYC.

We were very pleased with the standard of service at the Gardens Suites Hotel. We had an issue with our original suite on the first night and the staff were highly appreciative of our issue and upgraded us to a Penthouse Suite with the minimal of fuss and cost. Highly recommend this Hotel.
