Dmitry Petrounin Section editor

Just as the Affinia Dumont markets itself as a fitness suite hotel, the Affinia Gardens thinks of itself as a tranquil suite hotel. And just as the Dumont justifies its status with corresponding 'kits', the Gardens offers 'tranquility', 'meditation', 'city gardens' and 'rejuvenation' kits. This property is made up entirely of suites, so again, as with the other Affinias, space is not lacking. Similar to its sister hotels, it won't win any design awards but it is a smart, clean, decent base for exploring the city whether you are a couple, family or group friends. Perhaps a little off the beaten track, but then again if it was in the mix of things in New York City it wouldn't be all that tranquil!

    • To know

    • The hotel is situated on East 64th street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues slightly north of the southern end of Central Park. It's slightly further out than most hotels, but enjoys a quiet location in a residential area. Central Park is just four blocks away, while Madison and Fifth Avenues are also within walking distance. There are three metro stations not far away from the hotel. JFK airport is 19 miles away, La Guardia 10 miles and Newark 18.

    • The entire inventory of the hotel is made up of suites, meaning no matter which room you choose you'll have ample space. The Junior Suite is the standard room here and can accommodate up to three people either in two Queen beds or in one King bed with the third person sleeping on the sofa bed. The room is equipped with a desk, living space with sofa and coffee table and a drawer unit opposite the bed on top of which is the television. It is bright with natural light and the furniture is simple with clean lines. Just to the right of the door is a dressing table. You'll find a webmail keyboard, CD clock radio, iron and ironing board and safe in the room itself. The bathroom, tiled in white, has a bathtub and Aveda toiletries. The fully equipped kitchen has everything you need for an extended stay with a fridge, cooker, microwave, toaster and crockery. For up to four people there are one and two bedroom suites available which have the same amenities as the Junior except that the living area is a separate room and therefore the bedrooms are slightly smaller. The two bedroom suite has two bathrooms and all rooms on the first floor have patio terraces. Many of the rooms have great views of Midtown. Ask when booking if you can grab one.
    • The entrance to the Affinia Gardens is set amongst residential buildings in this leafy street. The low-ceilinged lobby is a little bare with the reception desk to the left (where you can sip the hotel's refreshing signature drink after a long day's travelling) and a corner couch in the far corner behind which is a display of some of the other 'kits' available. Also at the reception desk is the minibar service with a selection of drinks and snacks (there are no minibars in the rooms). To the other side of the entrance hall is what is called the 'Serenity Lounge' which offers free tea and coffee (each month a different blend is available for sale) and is a place to relax and unwind-a kind of living room for guests. The lounge is also the venue for themed events put on by the hotel such as movie nights or cocktail receptions. It is decorated, like the lobby, is browns which is a shame as it could be an even more pleasant space to spend time in if it was jazzed up a little. You'll also find here an ATM machine and a PC (50c per minute) with free boarding pass printing. The hotel has a small fitness room with a few cardio machines with individual screens and one universal weights machines as well as free weights. There is no spa in the hotel although in-room wellbeing services can be arranged through the SPAffinia scheme which offers massages, facials and hand and foot treatments. The Affinia Gardens is nicely kept throughout although a dash of colour around the place wouldn't go amiss.
    • The Affinia Gardens does not have a restaurant or bar although room service is available 24 hours a day and comes from four different restaurants in the area, delivered to your room by hotel staff. On offer is Italian cuisine from Accademia di Vino, which also pairs wines to its regional dishes, Chinese and Japanese fare from China Fun, which has an extensive menu, all American food from Jackson Hole Burgers, winner of Time Out NY's 'Best Burger' award and Silver Star, a typical Manhattan diner with a wide selection of dishes. A continental breakfast is available in-room and can be ordered using the slip of paper on your bed.
    • Affinia Gardens is part of the Affinia Group which includes four sister hotels in New York (Affinia 50, Affinia Dumont, 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, in this instance they are 'tranquility', 'meditation', 'city gardens' and 'rejuvenation'. 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 5.62

      This is a hotel of distinction in an area of distinction. A relatively small property by New York standards, it exudes European class from the front door to the fitness room and everywhere else in between. The Lowell, while boasting a rich history (and the furniture, antiques and objets d'art to go with it), has all the modern amenities you'd expect from a top class hotel. Every detail has been painstakingly considered and if you manage to find one single flaw we take our hats off to you. Couples or small families will find in The Lowell an extremely comfortable, well-located hotel with the best of services and a staff to match. A hearty thumbs up from easyvoyage.co.uk.

      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.

      The intention of the Four Season's Chinese-born American architect, Ieoh Ming Pei, was to create a hotel "in the grand tradition of a former time when going to a hotel was an occasion." Thanks to his ingenuity and vision those days live on in our time. A Four Seasons, wherever it may be in the world, is synonymous with quality and timeless sophistication and this spectacular New York example is no exception. It is a hotel of superlatives: the tallest New York hotel, the largest standard rooms in the city, the most expensive hotel suite in the world. Whether you are travelling as a family, couple or friends, on business or pleasure, and want to be guaranteed a flawless stay, you need look no further.

      • Value for money 6.3
      • Location 7.21

      The Carvi is a comfortable mid-range hotel in Midtown Manhattan with decently appointed rooms for single or double occupancy. The design is somewhere between boring and non-offensive although the place is clean and tidy and in good nick. Aside from the modest rooftop terrace, the hotel offers no other amenities or services although it is close to many of the major attractions that first-time visitors to the city would want to see. It is difficult to pick out something that sets this place aside from other hotels but it equally difficult to find fault with it other than the fact that some rooms are on the pokey side and have no natural light. The Carvi would make a reasonable base from which to explore the city, but it will not wow you.

      • Location 7.05

      The smaller and more traditional of the two Fitzpatrick hotels in New York, the Manhattan, it is fair to say, it probably the less charming of the pair. That said, it does provide clean, comfortable and functional rooms in an excellent Midtown location with the added bonus of having good transport links and being close to many of the major attractions you may want to visit during your stay. While there are no on-site fitness or wellness facilities, the hotel does have a popular restaurant is the place to come for all your live Irish sports. The Manhattan would be a good choice for both leisure and business stays as well as for families and can pride itself on its cheery service.

      Unless you are specifically looking for the hottest, trendiest hotel in town, there is very little to reproach The Sherry Netherland, a throwback to the Golden Age of travel. It boasts enormous rooms and suites for this part of Manhattan which are extremely well appointed and decorated, a superb and professional staff and of course a high class dining experience in the form of Harry Cipriani. Everything at this luxury property is done with the utmost care and attention and whether you are in the city as a tourist or on business, The Sherry Netherland will meet and exceed needs and expectations. A unique hotel with the perfect location - you'd be a fool not to consider it!

      Classicism, luxury, and refinement characterise the Plaza - one of the must of the American megapolis. No doubt that even the most demanding clients find the environment, the amenities, and the equipment to be all they dream of - everything in a sumptuous decor in "French Renaissance" style.

      • Value for money 8.8
      • Location 8.13

      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.

      • Location 9.22

      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!

      We were quite simply blown away by this hotel. Rare are the occasions where there is nothing to fault, but staying here was one of those - it just couldn't put a foot wrong. 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.

      • Location 7.99

      You may be coming to the United States to see New York, but the St. Regis is a destination in itself. The most sumptuous hotel we have visited to date in the city, its beautiful Beaux-Arts interiors are a sight to behold. It's (rightly) famed for its unrivalled service and King Cole Bar (more in 'Food and Drink') as well as its beautiful, spacious and well appointed rooms, however it does lack some of the high tier amenities of its rivals, such as a swimming pool, and the views are not quite as good. That said it can boast an Alain Ducasse restaurant and original antique décor. It's true to say that some may find the hotel's opulence a little overbearing, but let's not lose sight of the fact that this is nonetheless a true masterpiece. Even if you don't have the means to stay here, come and take a look around as the property has some unique features. Couples, friends or business travellers will all find their calling at the St. Regis.

      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.

      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.

      It's perhaps befitting that a hotel of this stature begins at the 35th floor, as if to suggest that it couldn't possibly be seen as sharing common ground with its competitors. And in many ways it is justified. This luxury property is technically located at the very centre of Manhattan and boasts incredible views from every room. It also has a world-class restaurant, one of the most breath-taking spas in New York and design from world-renowned designers and architects. Now place all this under the umbrella of the prestigious Mandarin Oriental brand and you have a hotel which brings together the very best of the East and West. It doesn't come cheap, but if you can stretch that far, don't even ask yourself the question?
