Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Affinia Dumont markets itself as a fitness suite hotel, justified by the special 'kits' available to guests (see 'To Know' section) and its sizeable spa featuring a comprehensive range of treatments. Couples looking for a mid-range base from which to explore the city and who like to continue their keep fit regime even while away would do well to consider this hotel. The hotel might also suit a business user, the large rooms having generous work space.

    Location 7.53 /10

    The hotel is located at 150 East 34th Street in the Murray Hill district of Manhattan. It is just a few blocks away from Madison and Fifth Avenues, Macy's and the Empire State Building. Both 33rd Street metro and Grand Central are within walking distance. Both JFK and Newark airports are 17 miles away while La Guardia is just 8.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    Three types of room make up the Dumont's inventory. The standard room is known as the Studio Suite and is somewhat more spacious than your average New York standard. The room boasts two queen size beds (some have kings), a desk positioned in the corner of the room where light pours in, a drawer unit upon which is a television and selection of nicely presented snacks and wine and a comfy armchair with matching pouffe in the opposite corner. Opening the closet will reveal the safe and iron and ironing board. The conservative décor will certainly not knock your socks off, but the room is clean, luminous and correct. Cornered off in the room is an old-fashioned kitchenette with cooker and fridge. The bathroom, which, like the bedroom, is not revolutionary in its design, has a bathtub, hairdryer, makeup mirror and Aveda toiletries. For more space or if there are more than two people in your party, the junior suite offers the same amenities but with a sofa bed. For a group of four opt for the one bedroom suite which not only has a separate living area, but also a hi-if, DVD player and webmail.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    The 37 floor brown brick tower that is the Affinia Dumont was built as a hotel. Entering the all marble lobby you are faced with the brightly illuminated reception desk while behind to the right, next to the street, is a seating area resembling in its setup a dentist's waiting room, decorated with 5 x 4 grid of images reflecting the hotel's fitness/relaxation theme. You'll find a PC opposite the reception which can be used to customize your stay while another in the seating area can be used for surfing the web and printing boarding passes (complimentary). The smart Oasis Day Spa offers an exhaustive range of treatments everyday of the week while the hotel's fitness centre has a large collection of decent machines with individual screens on the cardio apparatus, as well as a yoga room and locker rooms equipped with steam showers. The facility itself is reasonably modern and well maintained and the staff we came across were smiley and polite.

    Food and drink 7.20 /10

    The hotel's restaurant, the Barking Dog, is a homage to man's best friend. Adorning the walls are countless canine portraits as well as a giant blackboard scrawled with dog-related quotes. There is even a dog bar outside the restaurant for doggies of different sizes. A small bar is tucked into the right-hand corner as you enter and the seating is arranged with booths down the same flank and tables and chairs elsewhere. The menu features primarily heavy American fare such as robust sandwiches, generous wraps and salads for lunch with chicken, meat and seafood for dinner (homemade pizzas are available all day). The restaurant is open for all three meals and provides room service for the hotel. In the summer chairs and tables are put out on the terrace off of the street.

    To know

    Affinia Dumont is part of the Affinia Group which includes four sister hotels in New York (Affinia 50, Affinia Gardens, Affinia Manhattan and Affinia Shelburne) as well as four affiliate hotels (Eastgate Tower Hotel, Surrey Hotel, The Benjamin and The Buckingham). Each of the Affinias offers complimentary 'Experience Kits' to help you customize your stay. Here you can choose between the yoga, running and strength kits. Guests can all customize their stay by choosing one of six pillow types and adding such items as rubber ducks, putters or cupcakes to their room thanks to the My Affinia application found both on the hotel's website and at computer stations in the hotel lobby.

      • Location 8.73

      The very first Kimpton hotel to see the light of day in New York, 70 Park Avenue is a smart hotel with a great location which has recently been renovated to bring it (almost) up to date. Its rooms, which have recently been partly renovated, are still not quite as impressive or as spacious as those in its sister properties, but they are nicely appointed and want for nothing. The restaurant and bar provide an added pull to a property which is largely patronised by a business clientele, although there is no reason, unless you are looking for something particularly trendy/luxurious, not to consider 70 Park Avenue as a tourist.

      This high class property is everything one would expect from New York's only Japanese-owned hotel: exceptionally calm and quiet, meticulously decorated and appointed and very much focused on giving the very best customer service (which is succeeds in doing with flying colours). With its immaculate, generously sized guestrooms, top class restaurant and bar and excellent location, there is very little for us to pick holes at at The Kitano. While a large proportion of the hotel's guests hail, naturally, from Japan, any demanding traveller will appreciate the luxury and professionalism of this wonderful establishment which would suit any type of traveller to the city.

      Of all the Affinia hotels in New York, this is probably the most modern. It underwent a two-year renovation costing $25million and opened in June 209. Ok, it's not a super trendy design hotel, but it has a bit more colour and than the rest and in many ways better features. The hotel could suit any type of traveller such is the range of rooms and their sizes. With a decent location, a touch of originality and a friendly staff, this is not to be overlooked if you are looking for a good value option in Manhattan.

      It all started right here in 1984 when Andrée Putman, the celebrated French interior designer, unveiled the Morgans hotel and triggered what was to be arguably the greatest phenomenon in hotel history by creating the boutique hotel. Renovated last in 2008, still with a large input from Mrs. Putman, the property has kept the same values which has made it and the other hotels in the group of the same name what they are today. An innovative design, functionality, a renowned restaurant and a superb location combine to produce a property which still meets the heavy expectations placed upon its shoulders. Recommended strongly for friends, families or couples as well as those in town on business. Once a classic, always a classic.

      The more modest of the two St. Giles properties in New York, The Court is nevertheless a good, solid mid-range hotel in the Murray Hill neighbourhood of Manhattan. While not a full service hotel, it does have the advantage of a tasteful, non-offensive décor, very spacious guestrooms and a bar and breakfast room. Its location, close to many of the city's top attractions, is a further reason for you to consider The Court for your business or leisure stay - you are sure to be comfortable, especially if you opt for one of the nicely appointed suites.

      Thrifty travellers have a new reason for cheer in New York with the opening of a new Pod hotel, this time Pod 39. Younger sister of the Pod 51 hotel between Second and Third Avenues, the 39 is very much in the same vain and offers very similar rooms at low prices. Just because the rates are cheap that does not mean that you lose style or amenities however. Yes, the rooms are on the small side, but they contain everything the modern young traveller could wish for. In addition, the hotel boasts a stunning rooftop bar and there are plans for a cool common area just like at the 51. A restaurant and a ground floor bar are also in the pipeline. Pod 39 is perfect for young couples and groups of friends who want to be in the heart of New York but who do not necessarily have a huge budget.

      The smarter, more luxurious sister hotel to The Court just next door, The Tuscany, which went through a multi-million dollar renovation throughout 2012, is a breath of fresh air in the crowded New York hotel game. The spacious rooms are appointed to an exceptionally high standard with quality materials and are not so contemporary that they are about to go out of fashion. The public spaces are equally aesthetically pleasing with some great examples of art and design. The breakfast room in the lobby should now be in operation as should an all-day snacking menu (though no true lunch and dinner services). The top-of-the-range fitness room, the good location and the amiable staff make of The Tuscany and great mid-range option for couples and families.

      Q. What do you get when you take $150 million and put them into the hands of one of the world's greatest architect/designers? A. The Mark. Be under no illusions, what Jacques Grange and co have conceived in the leafy surroundings of the Upper Eastside is now the yardstick against which all other hotels will now have to measure themselves. After over two years under renovation with some of the most sought after names in the creative fields working on the project, The Mark has transformed itself from a decent hotel to a hotel of superlatives. Everything is top draw from the design to the staff, from the food to the wellness centre. This all, of course, comes with the price tag that its quality demands, however rest assured that no other hotel can come close to what The Mark has to offer.

      We're going to stick our necks out here and say that of all the hotels we have stayed at in this city, the Setai probably takes top spot. Of course there are many different types of hotel in the city and not everyone is looking for what the Setai has to offer, but as on overall experience, it can't, in our opinion, be bettered. The rooms are not only some of the biggest in the city, but they are likely to be the best appointed in terms of amenities too. The stunning, contemporary spa is as luxurious as it is spacious and in its restaurant the hotel has one of most memorable dining experiences to be had. But what impressed us most, and where the hotel rises above it competitors, is the consistent attention to detail and impeccable service the likes of which we've never seen. Although new (November 2010 opening), this is right up there with the old masters and the best thing is that it can only get better!

      Let's not mince our words; The Peninsula is quite simply one of the finest hotels in New York, even more so now it is the other side of a renovation. From the very first moment you enter the hotel you'll have no doubt about the quality of experience that awaits you. There is very little to pick holes at here where excellence comes as standard: the large rooms are finely furnished, the restaurants of the highest caliber, the spa one of the most beautiful and complete in the city and the service faultless. Like all top class hotels this all comes at a certain price, however if there was ever one hotel which could justify the cost it would be this one.

Generously proportioned, impressively appointed rooms are complemented by a relaxed yet top class Italian restaurant, while the spa is a sight to behold. You'll have a tough job finding a property where the service is paralleled and don't even get us started on the views! A magnificent, modern and memorable hotel, we recommend the Trump Soho to all kinds of traveller, newcomers or old hands, couples or families. A huge thumbs up.

      This mythical New York hotel has seen its fair share of changes, both within in its walls and outside, however one thing remains constant: The Carlyle is one of the swankiest, smartest, seductive hotels in the city. The very few flaws of the hotel (for example the size of some bathrooms) can be excused by its age; otherwise there are very few hotels of this genre which can claim to offer a similar experience. Not only does it offer top notch service and facilities, but its location and commanding views are also something spectacular. Throw in a rich history, fine dining and exquisite décor and you get a hotel (literally) fit for kings. If you've got the cash, don't even ask yourself the question?

      The Pierre has always been a landmark hotel in New York City?and we are glad to report that after its latest $100 million renovation following its takeover by Taj Hotels, it is still very much one of the hotels by which others must judge themselves. It is true to say that it may not have some of the facilities of some of the other top hotels (no spa, smaller rooms), but when it comes to service, style and sophistication, not to mention history, it is untouchable. With a location that would make most hotels weep with envy, fabulously appointed rooms with an Asian touch and a new, top quality restaurant, The Pierre is back on top of its game and ready to welcome once again all types of traveller, no matter their motive for visiting the city. All this comes, of course, at a price, but if you had to choose a place to spend your hard earned cash, this has got to be near the summit of your shortlist.

      Although no longer associated with its Parisian namesake, the Plaza Athénée New York continues to offer one of the most refined hotel experiences in the city. Its style may not be as subtle as some of its competitors and thus some many find it a little overwhelming, but there is no getting away from the fact the hotel is a class act from top to bottom. It boasts capacious, well-appointed and recently renovated rooms (January 2010), a fine wellness centre, a celebrated restaurant and bar and an impeccable service from a smart, professional staff. If you're after that classic European opulence the other side of the Atlantic then the well-located Plaza Athénée is one to consider.

Marrying both old world glamour and modern day luxury, this 'baby grand' hotel will appeal to those looking for good old fashioned service in a romantic setting with everything that makes this a great city within reach.
