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!
