Beyond fantastic! My friends and I stayed here for my college graduation party and we've all said that we'd go back in an instant. We booked a suite with one common area and one bedroom with two beds. We then also booked a connecting room which had a king size bed and an extra bathroom. Both the extra bedroom and the common area had kitchens. Yes! Kitchens! A fridge in both, stove, counters, everything! The decor is very pleasant and the elevators are fast. Didn't have time for the gym with all the stuff we did but this hotel is highly recommended.

For a New York hotel, this is an excellent hotel for a great price.  I would highly recommend the Junior Suite and not the 1 bedroom suite as we had both.  The Junior Suite was a very large room with an updated bathroom and excellent shower pressure.  The service is outstanding at this hotel and everyone is always ready to help you and offer advice for restaurants, transportation, and food.  They also have a kitchen with a refrigerator and microwave.  The prices are reasonable and it is located 2 blocks from the Empire State building which is convenient.  It is also located somewhat away from the tourist zone of Times Square/5th Avenue, so there are many other eating options, etc.

This is not a fancy hotel - but for its class (which is probably more boutiquey and mid-range), it is highly recommended.  The rooms are clean and comfy and HUGE by NY standards - we had a very affordable suite with 2 full beds and a queen sofa-bed pullout and a small kitchenette and lots of closet space.    It fit 4 girls very comfortably.  The service was very friendly and efficient; the gym (while small) had all the necessary equipment.  There were several cafes, bars and markets nearby which was quite convenient.   This hotel is perfect for a family with kids, for groups of friends - probably not the best for a romantic weekend.  (tip for the men:  if you want to impress your dates, try the plaza or peninsula :)  .) I didn't try the spa so I can't comment on that.

I booked my room through Travelocity and got a very good deal.  The Affinia Dumont was not the epitome of luxury, but pretty close.  The location is convenient to everything, the room was clean and everything was functional.  Even though they were quite busy for New Year's Eve, the service was excellent.  

We would definitely stay here again.

Great hotel.  The staff is friendly and accommodating.  The rooms are always very nice and clean.  The bathroom's are great and I love that you get a kitchen!  I have stayed here a couple times and will definitely recommend it to friends.  I haven't been to the spa or the gym, but hopefully next time I stay here I will get to experience both!

I like to stay further down on the island but staying here was a friend's suggestion.  This is a find.  The hotel room was well appointed, large for New York.  I was really surprised; even more surprised by the very helpful staff, yes helpful!!! imagine that.  I think this is primarily a business hotel.  the rates were reasonably even during holiday time--super easy access to the subway.  It is not the "sexy" part of NY.  But for me New York is wonderful it is all sexy to me.  God keep me close to New York and far from suburbia!

Note: I'm writing this three months after my stay.  My posting activities fell off drastically in November and December.  So, take this more as  directional recollections than a highly focused critique.

I am a big fan of 'apartment hotels', where you get a kitchen or kitchenette in room.  I'm not sure exactly why.  Grabbing some groceries locally and stuffing them in the fridge works for me on a couple of levels.  One, it's more economical than either the mini bar or the hotel restaurant/room service options.  Two, it gives you at least some small sense of 'living like a local' (admittedly, sometimes a very, very small sense -- I don't think the Affinia Dumont's lobby amenities are commonly found in your average Manhattan apartment building, but then again, I really don't know).

So when the wife and I were planning a quick trip to New York for some family activities, I checked out the various Affinia locations looking for the best overall deal I could find.  It was far from 'cheap', but it's New York.  Prices are high across the board, so the question is more about the value you're getting.  After all was said and done, the Affinia Dumont ended up being ~$500/night and the value was just okay.  There were some highs and some lows that balanced each other out.

One of the highs was the view.  We had room 3402, so we were decently high up and the view was pretty cool.  I won't go all the way to 'spectacular', but it was pretty cool.

The space was good.  The room is unquestionably big.  But the furnishings are also unquestionably a bit dated.  

Yes, that is a 29" (maybe a 32"?) old school TV.  

Yes, that desk looks a little bit like something from the Hardcastle & McCormick era.  

The bathroom was decent, though the folks who designed it look like they borrowed some inspiration from the closet of the Hotel Monaco in San Francisco.

And the kitchen was serviceable.  Not ideal for entertaining, perhaps, but it suited our needs.

Additionally, they do have a pretty good gym, which you can check out on their web site.  Small but nice space with a good mix of modern equipment.

My two biggest gripes with the Dumont would be (1) you could hear a lot between the walls, and (2) they negged my request for a late check out.

Regarding the walls, maybe it varies by room, but we heard screaming kids in the morning.  Part of this is the hotel's issue (some insulation please?) and part of it is the parents/nanny issue (really?  screaming/shrieking for 45 minutes?  a little exuberance is understandable, but how about some consideration of your neighbors?  45 minutes of shrieking before 10am in a hotel isn't cool).

While the acoustics were annoying, my biggest gripe with the Affinia was that they would not accommodate us even a little bit regarding our request for a late check out.  I'm not the biggest road warrior in the world, but over the years I've probably racked up a few hundred nights in hotels and I have had my late check out request declined only once.  By the Affinia Dumont.  Extremely aggravating.  Especially because we were requesting it on a Sunday, which is not the busiest check-in day in the hotel biz (someone by all means correct me if I'm mistaken).  But worse, I was able to check their web site for reservation avails that day and there were multiple rooms available for booking (i.e., they weren't full - not close).  So why the flat decline of a late check out?  It's too bad, too, because the Affinia chain does try hard in other ways to tailor their service to your needs and desires. After you've booked they reach out to you via email asking what kind of pillows you'd prefer, whether any of their spa packages are of interest, whether you could use any complimentary toiletries, etc.  Some nice touches.  But for me, all that goodwill was undone by what I perceived to be an unnecessary rejection of my request for a late check out.  

Net: it was decent for this trip, but not a delight by any means, and I'll be looking for alternatives on my next trip to NY.

This is my favorite place to stay in NYC. It's a former apartment building that's been converted to a hotel. So you get a little kitchen, which is very handy. The room is large, the beds are very comfortable, you get a big desk, free internet access, and the view facing the Hudson River is dynamite. The location is very convenient to both downtown and uptown.
Great service from the hotel staff, who are friendly and helpful.

I was very happy.  I've stayed in hotels in Manhattan 5-6 times, so I'm not really an expert, but I can say, that this by far has been the best experience that I have had so far. I've read through some of the other reviews, and noted people's comments.  Some I agreed with, while others I wasn't particularly bothered by.   My experiences were positive and I am happy to share a good review.  

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and stayed until their 12:00 check out on Sunday.    The lobby is on the smaller side, but not claustrophobically so.  It was comfortable.  Would I have preferred that it had free internet?  Sure.  Was I really bothered that it didn't have it?  Not at all.  It had a little bit of seating off to the side, and was a place to wait for a few minutes for someone.  It was less situated for someone who wanted to spend more time just hanging out.  I've never really been someone who has spent a lot of time in the lobby, I'm mostly just checking in and out and getting on my way, so I thought it was just fine.  I will say that the staff was welcoming and really friendly.  I spent a little time chattering with them and I appreciated their humor and good cheer.  

We were on the 13th floor.  Something to think about if you are superstitious, but it didn't occur to me until just now that some people may be bothered by that.  It didn't have a great view, but it wasn't a bad one either.  We were close enough to the Empire State Building and the Chrysler buildings that I'm guessing it may have been better had I asked for a room higher up.  Maybe next time?  I will say that I was thrilled by the impressive size of the room.  My fiancé and I had plenty of room to spread out our array of stuff and were never tripping over each other like we have in other rooms with tighter spaces.  I loved that we had a full kitchen (not that I had any real intentions of using it), and the bathroom was a decent size with enough room for the stuff that I had brought.  The king size bed didn't take up the whole room, and the colors and layout made me feel right at home.  The only downside, as others stated was that the television did seem a bit dated.  I was truly surprised that the hotel had not yet upgraded to the flat screens that I have seen in most other hotels at this price point.

We enjoyed being able to wander Murray Hill and the shops around Penn Station.  From the hotel it was an easy walk to the subway when we wanted to be in the Village.  We also appreciated that we could grab a cab without any trouble, especially since we were running late for getting to a wedding on time.  I could not have asked for a better location.  As we entered and left we could always count on a cordial word from the front desk.  That was nice.  

Last thoughts...

* We did end up using the kitchen for organizing the array of goodies we grabbed from the store next door for a "midnight" snack.  I appreciated that we had a microwave to heat things up and a fridge to store our leftovers.  It was great to get to eat on real plates with real silverware especially since we had gotten a few items to share.  We had room service for breakfast.  It was nothing to rave about, but, we ordered eggs.  I'm not really the kind of girl who is going to get too excited about eggs.  
* We enjoyed playing around with the pillow menu and each tried a couple to see if they were better than our tried and true feather models.  
* The concierge may not be available 24 hours, but the night desk clerk was great at pointing out restaurants that would be good to try at 3:00 AM when we were looking for something in particular.  
* The concierge was helpful when we needed assistance with the schedule for a LIRR train we needed to catch.  

The stay was great and we will come back again.  I can't say that about all of the other hotels in Manhattan that I have tried.  A big thank you to the staff for providing such great service.

Very big hotel rooms-- which is unusual in NYC.  The lighting in the room was a bit dim, no matter how many lights I turned on.  I'm not sure why, but this bothered me the slightest bit-- especially when trying to put my makeup on.  Other than that, I can't complain.  The staff was very sweet, our rooms were clean, and there was a spa in the hotel.  It was so nice to come back from a long day of walking and get a massage and take a steam shower.  I also loved having a full size fridge to put snacks in from the deli next door.  The neighborhood is nice and quiet but definitely not devoid of delis, markets, restaurants, and bars.  It's also located a block and a half from the subway.  I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.  It felt more like an apartment than a hotel.

Wow! I want to live here! The entire hotel smells divine and the doorman, Chris immediately felt like my new best friend. The room was clean and comfy and I loved the Aveda products. I really liked the pillow menu - you can choose hypo-allergenic, buckwheat or memory foam. All the staff was friendly and helpful without being too much.

I was wishing I had brought my running gear because they offer three free workout kits - a running pack with maps for good runs in the area, a diskman and other amenities, a set for yoga and one for weight training. All this in addition to a workout room. All free! Very cool!

We also really liked the mini kitchen with full fridge, coffee maker and service for four. Since my fiance was working during part  of the trip, it was handy to have the means to reheat leftovers for lunch, etc.

I failed to take advantage of the spa because there was just so much to do but the range of services sounds great. Maybe next time, because if I have anything to do with it, there WILL be a next time.

Slight correction to another review - the hotel faces the East River - the location was convenient and beautiful.

Good size rooms with full kitchens but needs some TLC.  Comfortable beds.  Customer service ranged from very friendly to distant.  On the third night our thermostat was set for 90 degrees.  Desk said someone previously must have programmed that temp.

I felt like I was stepping into a spa when I walked into the lobby, it smelled puuurty.

We make a trip to NY at least once a year and this year we stayed for my sissy's bach weekend.  Going on a friend/family member's suggestion we booked the trip for 8 gallys staying in two studio suites.  The front desk staff and bell guys were super friendly and accomdating for our early check-in (took the red-eye from LA) We knew we were not guaranteed the early check-in unless we paid for the night before, but we lucked out.

Only two blocks from the 33rd street station subway and there was decent eats next door at the Barking Dog.  Bodega next door was open 24 hours for late night munchies (bag o' doritos... $5... wtfark)

Would definitnely stay here again - kitchenette was great for the booze cooling thing but in general, we loved the extra space.

oh and fresh fruit at the front desk...ate my weight in pears... yeeow!

Overrated.  I had seen numerous reviews of this being one of the top 10 hotels to stay in while in NYC, so honestly for the price we paid, I was expecting a bust.

Lobby is bland compared to a hotel you would expect to be in the top 10, everything is small and narrow in the entire hotel (the building is narrow).  Even the floors are scrunched together.  The hall is about 15 feet on either side of the elevator and I think there are only 5-6 rooms per floor.  That doesn't really say much except that you get a very cramped feel while in the hotel (but outside of your room), and I actually enjoy when hotels are a bit roomier in the elevator lobby or entrances, but that's just me.

Kitchen is very outdated, they still have rear-projection TV's (what?), the bathroom is outdated, the bed was very uncomfortable, and overall just not what you would expect for a hotel rated as well as this place is.

The pro(s) are that we got upgraded cheaply to a suite, which was spacious.  And really the only other pro was that it was a cheap place that wasn't dumpy, so there is nothing wrong with the hotel, it's just that yelp (and others) will lead you to believe it is much better than it really is.  That's my opinion anyway.  I probably would have stayed elsewhere for a bit more expensive, because in the past the places I have stayed have been nicer for only a little bit extra cost.

Larger than average rooms for Manhattan with some studio suites that have full kitchens. Not a fancy lobby or lounge and no real place to hang out except in your larger than average room, hehehe. Not too far from the "Curry Hill" cartel, another plus.

I was not really impressed by this hotel... I should have copy and pasted what I wrote on their hotel survey and saved me some time. But I'll try to recreate it:

Basically, I had to check in twice (once for each night) due to their completely ridiculous reservation system. I reserved a room online, then called to extend my stay. They said they had to make a new reservation for me in order to extend for a night. Okay, whatever, I thought.

But when I arrived and checked in, they informed me that I would need to check in again the next day (AND GET A NEW KEYCARD) because my reservation for the next night was separate. It was ridiculous.

The room was pretty nice and very spacious. But if I am going to be paying lots of money for a hotel room I'd prefer a robe and slippers to extra space. And bubble bath would have been nice.

They advertise a "pillow menu" and I am disappointed to report that the menu is not available after 11pm. Um, in the city that never sleeps or whatever, 11pm is a pretty early bedtime for the housekeeping services.

I wanted my buckwheat pillow.

This is a nicely placed hotel that I have stayed at quite a few times. The service is personal, the rooms, which can be small are nicely appointed and some even have kitchenettes. While it's a longer walking distance for me to my business meetings, I find the area and the amenities around it to be right on the mark. I noticed many families staying here recently. This hotel makes sense for tourists as the price is right and you can get the 1 bedroom apartments with a kitchen which allows you to shop at the local markets and cut down on food costs for breakfast and such.

A friend and I stayed here in March '07. Wonderful place. The staff was friendly. The suite was roomy. I usually have a hard time sleeping in hotels but  the bed was so comfy that I slept like a baby. No problem with a late check out and they kept our bags while we tooled around all day. I would def stay here again and highly recommend this place.
Oh and the Aveda products add a nice touch!

The man and I stayed here for a couple of nights recently, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience.  There was fresh fruit and tea everyday downstairs in the lobby, and one night there was even a cheese/fruit/cracker platter for the guests (some sort of promotional thing I think).

The hotel advertises itself as being into spa and fitness.  I found that to be generally true as many fitness kits were available, and they even let you pick a pillow you'd like to sleep on from a "pillow menu."  The only downside was that new equipment was coming into the gym, so for two days we were without.  But we got to use the gym at their sister hotel just a couple of blocks away, so it was ok.

Location is good, and the Barking Dog (the restaurant next to it) has a good breakfast menu.  We stayed in a junior suite, with two queen beds, a kitchen, a huge desk (with internet access you have to pay $10/day for), and a great view.

Priceline has led to some interesting adventures in my life - why is it that I'm okay with saying, "Here's some dough, guys - go find me a cheap hotel that I have to stay in!"  Well, this time things worked out pretty nicely - I got to stay at the Affinia Dumont.

Let's start here:  have you ever stayed in one of the hipper hotels in Manhattan, those that sport the trendy bars where martinis cost approximately half your week's salary?  I have, and they can be a blast, though you have to be able to foot the bill, and generally be okay with brushing your teeth, taking a shower, sitting on the toilet, and laying on your bed all within the same cubic yard.  Sexy?  Not so much.

Comparatively, the AD is like a palace (and the room we got, which was standard, rivaled some apartments in NY I've seen, size-wise), and though not exactly hip, the hotel and room were certainly classy and clean (and had a couch, kitchen, and second bed, as well.)  Well-suited for business travelers, the amenities are all there, just not the bling.  Or the expense.

Or the crapper staring you down as you're counting sheep.  --js

3.75 stars

The Affinia was very nice.  I have few major complaints, but there is nothing to write home about here.  

The awesome:  Carl's Steaks is right around the corner, as well as a Duane Reade for stocking up the full kitchen that is in all the rooms.  Having a refrigerator with a giant bottle of Fiji water is awesome after a late NYC night.

The good:  The spa is really nice and connected to a pretty well appointed gym.  However, for calling themselves a fitness hotel, it was pretty small.  The staff was friendly and gave us a late checkout with little difficulty.  I had an excellent massage, but book early.  It fills up.

The not great:
The location is a little odd if you are touring around town.  The rooms are large, nice, and far from bad, but nowhere near a 5 star and certainly not inexpensive.   There was no flat screen!  In Manhattan!?

The ugly:  The door man seemed nice, but after calling a car to get me to (Brooklyn!) and telling me he had a great deal for me, it turned out to be $35.  He told me this up front and I was too tired and apathetic to care, but having been around NYC a lot, $35 is far from a deal.

Booked this hotel through Travelocity, and was very pleased.  The area was good, the service was friendly, and the rooms were large (we are a family of four with two teenaged sons).  The full kitchen with refigerator and microwave were nice to have, and the beds were very comfortable.  At 34th Street, just a block from a subway station, this was centrally located enough to be convenient, without being in the crowded Times Square area.

I recently stayed at the dumont after I got married at the city clerks office. I let the staff know in advance that this was a mini honeymoon and was pleased to get a large room with a fab view and free champagne.

The location of the hotel is really stellar- near the subway, shopping, restaurants, etc. I had breakfast and lunch at the Barking Dog restaurant next door and was pleased with the food, service, cost,etc.

HUGE rooms.  I felt like I was in a palatial palace when staying here.  Bedroom, living room and kitchen along with enough closet space to hang shirts from my entire closet back home.

Go here for the rooms.  Service is average and there isn't much of a atmosphere when staying here.

They have a small restaurant on the ground floor that serves a lot a average food, but to find a place that gives you this kind of space in your room in Manhattan is a rare find.  Take advantage of it

Nice location and very kind staff. But the best is the large room, which doesn't happen a lot in NYC, sounds like a family friendly hotel (together with kitchen and other facilities). I will definitely stay in here in my next trip to NYC.

This is not a five star hotel.  This is a four star hotel that I am giving a five star rating because I absolutely loved my stay there.  I recently spent the weekend in New York with my mom.  The front desk staff were friendly. The room was clean and spacious.  I had the most restful night of my life! Affinia's beds are sooooo comfortable.  They also have a pillow menu, so you can choose the firmness that is best for you.  Best of all, checkout wasn't until noon, so we didn't have to worry about being up early after a late night!  AWESOME hotel.

There is a frozen yogurt place down the street called Red Mango.  Amazing.  Words cannot describe how delicious it is.  Trust me, you have never had frozen yogurt like this.  You MUST go.

My husband and I stayed at the Affinia Dumont the weekend of Jan.21-23. We were very pleased with the price we got on priceline for this hotel. We are big priceline (name your own price) users and we were delighted. Our room was a corner room with banks of windows on each side. The temperature outside was very cold and there was a bit of a airleak but it didn't matter because we had the most wonderful views of the city and the East River. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The size of our junior suite was amazingly large, basically, a studio apartment with a full kitchen! We arrived 3 hours before check-in and were able to get our room. The hotel is not very updated but really I would be thrilled to stay there again.

I went to NY with my brother and parents for my mothers 60th birthday. We booked two rooms, one junior deluxe suite (#3305) for my parents and one studio suite (#2802) for me and my brother. Both rooms were really nice, the studio suite was big and had two separate big comfortable beds. The view was downtown. The junior deluxe suite was fantastic! The view from room 3305 with both the Chrysler building and the river in full view was simply amazing.

The location is also great with the 6 subway line within a block. Many nice restaurants close by as well. We can recommend The Barking Dog (in the hotel), Penelope or Murray Hill Diner for excellent breakfast nearby the hotel.

The only negative side about this hotel is that they don't offer free wifi. They have wired internet in all the rooms (about $14 per 24 hrs) that has great speed but I would really prefer a wifi (free or paid).

Good location, great rooms, wonderful staff. Splurge for a room with a view. As I am typing this I am enjoying views of the Chrysler building and the East river from a corner room. Our room has been updated with a new flat screen TV. New mattresses delivered for the rooms this am. My second stay here and I will return!

Quick note, on the way home I realized I left behind a battery charger and battery for my camera. A quick call to the hotel lost and found, they had found it  while inspecting the room and are sending it right out to me.
Thanks Dana, you were a wonderful help, what fantastic service!

Whenever in NYC, this is the place that I love to stay. It is a terrific location, a fabulous hotel and the value is "Manhattan's little secret". The ammenites are better than the price might suggest. The rooms are 30 % larger than most in the city, and will you get  2 queen beds as well as a kitchette??

I haved stayed mutiple times and always have been enthusiastically satisfied. Much prefer it to the Affinia 50.
Convenient in Murray Hill, lots of really good restaurants and night action within walking distance. Wolfgang's on Park Ave is a favorite for steak and a Cosmo.

The past trip in March, I visited the Oasis Day Spa for the first time and had an unbelievable massage, as did my Mom. Anna the Spa co-ordinator (receptionist) is not only warm and friendly but knowledgeable about where to go, eat and do...  could easily be mistaken for the concierge.

Big Negative? No connector plugs in the rooms for my iPod
Perhaps they can work that out before my next trip.

We stayed at this place on the recommendation of a friend. After a horrible flight to NYC that had us arrive over 12 hrs late, we checked in to our hotel. Garnett, the man at the desk was very courteous and welcoming. Upon getting into our room, we unpacked and showered, then realized the a/c wasn't working very well. We were given the last room and an upgrade for the night, but were going to have to move again the next day due to hurricane Irene (no guests in the top two floors due to high winds). The staff moved our items to the new room and we were very happy for our entire stay. This place is well located and away from the heavy traffic of Park Ave. I would definitely stay here again and do recommend it versus a chain hotel.

I will say that during my visit the manager on duty shared that it was her first night, and it is really unfortunate, however I was horrified by the service that she allowed the door man to exhibit. Talk about uncouth. As a southern bell, I am glad to return home. It was really disappointing to watch the "manager" cringe at poor customer service without taking the initiative to intervene and alleviate the situation.

I've now stayed here 4 times for business/pleasure.  You will not find bigger rooms in the city and for the price it's unreal.  The place is completely clean and the staff is extremely pleasant.  There is a FULL kitchen in each room as well which is a huge bonus if you're there for more than a couple days.  You're about 2 blocks from the 6 subway line so very easy to get downtown or uptown and 3 blocks from the Empire State Building.  There are nice little touches with choosing your pillow type.  You don't get flat screen tv's but plenty of TV stations.

There's a full spa which is a nice perk and you can get in-room massages.  To even have enough room for a massage table in a NY hotel is something to brag about!

Value for money is unmatched in NY and location is great. When other 4 stars are $400/nt I have paid between $180-220/nt through Clicktravel.com .

Every time I come to Manhattan I stay at one of Affinia's hotels, and though I've been impressed by all of them, the Dumont is my favourite so far. The location is fantastic, really close to the subway and surrounded by convenient shops like Duane Reade, CVS, lots of delis and places to get coffee. The staff is incredibly friendly, helpful, accommodating and professional. One night it was pouring rain and we wanted to get a taxi at rush hour, and one of the staff went out in the rain to get one for us. Rooms are spacious, I think all of them have full kitchens which is great if you're staying a long time, and everything is new and clean and comfortable. LOVE this hotel and will definitely stay here from now on.

I'll openely admit that I don't know that much about New York Hotels, but in general this was not that nice.  The room was a little dark and dingy, the carpets seemed damp, room was dated, layout was whack and had a full 1960s style kitchen.  Star rating and price didn't seem justified.  
Also $14 dollars a day for wired internet?

WHAT A VIEW! When I stay Midtown, I stay at the Affinia Dumont. In my opinion, the customer service ranks among the Very Best in NYC. The charming bellmen are the one of the many reasons I keep coming back. (Donald, you're my man!)

An intimate lobby welcomes you in with smiling faces and complimentary fruit and tea. The wait won't be long, as the front desk staff is polite, prompt, and positively prepared to have you enjoying your stay every step of the way.

This is a fitness suite hotel so be sure and grab a yoga mat and DVD before heading to your suite. There will be plenty of space to move, as rooms range from 400-650 sq. ft. Complete with a full kitchen, sitting area, and desk, the rooms at the Affinia Dumont will give you a home away from home. Aveda bath products and your choice of Dream Pillows will help you rest well.

There are many services available at this hotel...just make sure you find out what they are. Ask the front desk for a list of amenities and services. Don't get left out!

BOTTOM LINE: I love, love, love this hotel and I would recommend it every day of the week and twice on Sunday! Thank you to all the very special employees that always make my stay purrrfection!

FYI: TripAdvisor ranks this hotel #8 out of 420 hotels in NYC. It is also the recipient of the 2009 Travelers Choice Award (2 years running).

Friendly Tip #1: Be sure and ask for a corner suite facing the Chrysler Building to get best view. And if money is no object, book the VIP Fitness Suite that comes complete with living area, separate bedroom and private exercise studio with steam room.

Friendly Tip #2: Room service is provided by the Barking Dog restaurant but is only available from 7am to 11pm. Not to worry, a grocery shopping service is available so you can stock up that kitchen with your favorite foods.

This is a very nice hotel in New York for the price (we paid $166 per night).  Everything is very clean, the rooms include a kitchenette, and the bed is top-notch... you can even order special pillows.

The location is quite good as well... we were able to walk to the Theater district (about a 30 minute walk, though you pass right by Times Square on the way), and the metro stop is just around the corner on Park & 33rd.

Stayed here for business/pleasure during St. Patties week. Rooms were pretty pricey, around $350/night but considering the holiday, not bad. Loved how there was a full kitchen in each room and rooms were huge! There are now flat screens and the bellmen were very helpful and friendly. Concierge was also a huge help when we searched for tours of the city. Compared to a previous stay where the rooms were around the same price, but more than half the size smaller, stay here!!!

I stayed here for 4 nights about 2 weeks ago and I thought it was pretty average.  There were pros and cons.  The room was huge! It was larger than my girlfriends studio in the city--you even get a kitchen.  This place was in a good location and the staff was so friendly!  So if you are not super picky, stay here.  They have a pillow menu that is really cool but I didn't test out the different types.  

I wouldn't stay here again because I'm a tad bit picker with my hotels.  The room design and furniture was totally dated.  The TV was from 1992 and I didn't feel like I was on vacation.  The kitchen was from 60's and it was just not as modern as I anticipated.  I was expecting 4 stars and I got 3.  The room was kind of dark, I didn't like the fact that you couldn't get wireless so I had to sit at the desk to do work late at night.

This hotel just needs a revamp with style...thats pretty much it.

When I think of my stay at this hotel I instantly get a HUGE smile on my face. The room was HUGE!! Not only that the bed was absolutely amazing! Used priceline to find a room for the extra night that we were staying in New York and we ended up here. Got there super early in fact I believe we arrived an hour or so before 3pm and they were able to get us up to our room. Which was perfect because we were in dire need of a little power nap.

As soon as I climbed into that bed it was all OVER! It was like being at home in my own bed! I judge hotels based on the bed and this one was perfect. Not only was the room HUGE and even had a kitchen in it. The staff went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I will do everything I can to stay at this hotel the next time I am in New York City.

Love this hotel! I always stay here when I'm traveling for business to NY and the rooms are spacious and comfortable.  The staff is beyond friendly.  The one thing that I love most is the amount of light the rooms have.  Generally most hotels i've stayed at have such poor lighting but the Affinia provides with plenty of good bright light.  They all have full length mirros so you can check out your duds! The bathroom showers are also really convenient. They all have a rack installed for all your toiletries.  It's the little things that make the difference.  :)

Great view, nice (and patient) staff, HUGE rooms. They let me check in at 9 AM at no extra cost and every night were so patient as we called down to try a new pillow from the pillow bar. The location was really perfect for the Thanksgiving Day Parade and early-AM Black Friday shopping (not to mention getting in and out of the city through Penn Station), and if you're a brand new tourist who has never been up the Empire State Building, it's soooo close!
I've stayed at some nicer hotels in NYC and some not-so-nice hotels, and I would say this one was a great value for the money. I will definitely stay here again when money is tight and I can't splash out on a more luxury hotel.

If you're looking for NYC's trendiest new hotel, look elsewhere. But if you need good value, lots of space, good customer service and decent modern decor (in addition to a great hotel gym/spa and even Aveda toiletries), read on.

We were looking for a place to stay with our 16-month-old daughter and found a decent price direct on the hotel's website. Our one-bed suite was huge allowing her to nap/sleep without having to tip-toe around her.

Having a microwave and fridge was really useful, though we did not have a stove in our unit. Room service is provided by the Barking Dog next door. The food is good and good value, the type of place visited by professional, lunching locals. We even ate there with our toddler, and they were very accommodating.

The location--Murray Hill--is also fantastic. There are reasonable and tasty restaurants nearby, and a Duane Reede across the street for any snacks, drinks, toiletries you may have forgotten.

I made use of the fitness center, which is probably one of the nicest "hotel gyms" I've been in. Three treadmills, three ellipticals, lots of weight machines, cables, free weights, yoga balls.

I uploaded pictures of our one-bedroom suite for reference. We were on the 5th floor (501) so did not have much of a view, but were on the back-side of the hotel so it was a little quieter. Our room was close to the elevators, but was not an issue.

All-in-all a great stay. I've been to many different hotels in Manhattan, from the Ws, Soho Grand, Hilton near Moma, to smaller boutique hotels. Next time, we will check the Dumont first.

I would have rated this hotel 3.5 stars if possible. However, since there are a bunch of 4 and 5 star reviews we need to put the record straight so that you don't come in with expectations that are too high. That's what happened to me.

First the good news: The location is awesome, just to the east of the Empire State Building on 34th St. The view from our 36th floor north facing room was spectacular and it was cool to have a little kitchen. The hotel staff are all very friendly.

For the bad news: Our room was unmade when we walked through the door. The decor was a bit drab and the bathroom was small and poorly lit. The TV was from the 90's and internet costs $14/day extra.

So that makes it a 3.5 star hotel in my book.

My husband had stayed here once for business.  But this past weekend (the weekend Frankenstorm hit) we were there for fun!  I checked many different hotel options before deciding on this hotel.  We got it for an average of $260 per night for a Fr-Sun stay.  We got this rate through the hotel's own website by pre-paying.  The rooms are very large for NY standards, another reason we chose this hotel.  It was very clean too. It's a very modern property which we prefer.  The subway is only a 3 block walk, very convenient.  This is a great location!  We would definitely stay here again.  But more importantly, we ended up leaving a day early due to the storm coming.  Again, we pre-payed for our room, which always means you can't get your money back.  And without hesitation they gave us a credit back for Sunday night!  Yes there were extreme circumstances, but they didn't have to give it back and they did.  Due to that alone, my husband will chose to stay here more often in the future for work.  All staff is super friendly and helpful!  Don't think, just stay here!

I was in a suite on the 30th floor with my friends and we had an AMAZING view of the Chrysler Building and Times Square. We stayed here on New Years Eve and were able to see the Waterford ball from our room! It was awesome.

The staff is super friendly. They let me leave my luggage with them while I walked around/ran errands around the city until my friends checked in under their name.

A couple of blocks from the 6 train @ 33rd St., and the 3rd Ave. bars and restaurants are less than a block away. Pretty convenient!

I would definitely stay here again.

Wifey and I decided to try something different for Christmas this year.  The Mrs. and I decided to skip town for the Holidays and spend Christmas in the second greatest city on Earth...New York (I'm a born and bred Angeleno).  Don't get it twisted, I LOVE New York.  Every time I go back it reminds me of the 18 months the Love of My Life and I were doing the whole NY to LA long distance love affair thing.  I've got eight million memories in that city.  Besides my dear L.o.m.l. get's "so excited" whenever she gets to go back to the greatest city on Earth (yes, we got issues).

I digress.  As this would be the first cross country trip our baby Ninja would be accompanying us on we were nervous to say the least.  Much like young Elephant, Young Ninja need LOTS of space to forage about.  Bargains ain't what they used to be and large hotel rooms in the city are rarer than an empty street in Mid-town Manhattan.  So imagine my surprise when I came across a 3 room 2 bedroom suite for LESS than the price of 3 singles elsewhere (we were travelling as a Clan and needed to sleep 4 plus a baby).  To top it off the location in Murray Hill was central to everything...SCORE 1 for the tourists.

As the Affinia Dumont is a "fitness Hotel" each room comes equipped with an apartment sized kitchen complete with 4 burner stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, plates and utensils.  Being that our 3 room 2 bedroom suite was essentially a 2 room 1 bedroom suite and another connected Jr. Suite we had a total of 2 bedrooms (3 total beds plus a pull out sofa in the living room and each bedroom had its own sitting area), LARGE living room between the bedrooms, 2 full size workstations, and enough room and full size mirrors for a small aerobics class (which is actually why they have so much space and full sized mirrors in the rooms...so people can work out) PLUS 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchens.  SCORE 2 for the tourists.

Travelling on Christmas Morning worked to our advantage.  Traffic everywhere was minimal and the poor staff that had to work the Holiday at the Hotel were anything but unpleasant.  Quality folks have got to be hard to find in the city because I swear to you they've ALL got to be working here.  We experienced top-notch service throughout our stay.  Upon checking in we were headed right back out the door to catch a meal when we inquired about the crib we requested for our room.  The staff were THOROUGHLY apologetic for the miscue and were buzzing about before we hit the door to exit.  Once we returned we were immediately greeted and notified that everything was in place and to be sure to call if we needed anything else.  I appreciate reassurance.

Besides having MORE than enough room (how often do you get to say that when you travel?) our room(s) were quiet, clean, comfortable and offered a partial view of the single most beautiful building in the world; The Chrysler Building.  I can't think of too many other places you can stay at that make you feel like you're in your own apartment in the city.  Warm food, hot cocoa, and whatever else you might enjoy at home were all available at our whim.  The ONLY drawback was the tiny drawers to unpack your clothes in (maybe I'm a freak for always unpacking when I travel; no one else seemed to mind).

Aside from that it was the perfect place to set up camp while we enjoyed the city.  I truly can't think of a better place for groups or families to stay in the city.  My only fear is that the incredible rates we got during our mid-week stay (through the winter sale on Expedia) may have been a once in a lifetime gift from 'Ol Saint Nick himself.

My husband, 10-year-old daughter, and I stayed at the Affinia Dumont for a week in June.  We were very satisfied.  We stayed in a one-bedroom, skyline room. "Skyline" means a floor high up in the building, so that you have a view.  Be sure and check out all the pricing options (like Trip Advisor, Expedia, etc) to get the best rate.  We paid $300 a night.

The hotel is very convenient to the 6 train; you can catch it at 33rd and Park Ave.  And, it's very convenient to good restaurants.  There are quite a number just around the corner on 2nd Ave (check out the Brick Oven Pizza 33 - exactly what New York pizza aspires to be).

The bed is wonderfully comfy, as are the sheets.  And, guests are given multiple pillow options, and the hotel staff can even give you a "pillow pamphlet" so you get the pillow you want.  Hypo-allergenic, down, feather, foam. . .hard, soft. . .whatever you want, they have a pillow to suit your needs.  In fact, they have so many pillow options, it's a little confusing.

The room was cleaned very well every day.  The housekeeping staff is well-trained and take the right amount of time to ensure that the room is satisfactory.  Strangely, one night, my husband found a screw in the carpeting.  We have no idea where it came from; considering the excellent housekeeping services, we found this to be an anamoly and had no further issues at-all.

Each room in the hotel has a small, fully-stocked kitchen.  Thank you, Affinia Dumont!  Oh my goodness, this is so appreciated.  You can bring your left-overs back to the room, refrigerate them, and then re-heat in the microwave.  And, there are some basics in the kitchen. . .utensils, dishes, glasses, pans, and towels.

There are, I believe, five rooms on each floor.  And, 37 floors in the hotel.  At any one time, it appeared that two-three of the four elevators were in service.  My family found this to be absolutely fine.  The elevators were fast, so even if you have to stop at 3-4 other floors before you get to your destination, it's really not a big deal.

Regarding internet connectivity, like anywhere else, once you get above a certain height, it's pretty tough to get a stable cell connection.  My husband and I could manage it only when we stood perfectly still in one place next to a window.  There is free wi-fi in the lobby, and the week-long rate to buy wi-fi in a room is, I think, about $60.  I believe you can also buy it daily in your room at $14.

My new favorite hotel in the city! My whole family (parents, sisters, brother-in-law, nieces) came to visit NYC for the first time and their stay at Affinia Dumont complemented the trip even more.

I was worried about parking with our car, but they have Valet Parking for $50 a day (no ins and outs privileges though). When we called down to front desk to retrieve our car, they would say the wait would be 20-30 minutes, but it actually took 45 mins to an hour for our car to arrive. We requested it around 5pm on a Friday, so I am not sure if traffic had any role in it. And I do wonder where the Valet Parking Lot is located. There were no damages seen to my car (at least to my naked eye), and nothing was missing in the car (but we made sure to take out all valuables).

Checking in was superb! The nice bellman approached our car immediately and loaded our luggage on the cart. He promptly brought it up to our rooms, once we knew what room number we were in. He also gave us some helpful tips and advice, like what foods in the room were at no charged, and that there is free internet in the lobby if you ask for a code. I had to print some documents and the front desk gladly printed it for me.

My sister and her family stayed on the 26th floor in a one bedroom suite with one king bed and a sofa bed. My parents, sister, and I stayed on the 29th floor with also a one bedroom suite but with two queen beds and a sofa bed in the living room. It was fantastic! The view was facing north, and we had a beautiful view of the skyline and of the Chrysler Building. Also, we could see Times Square and the "NYE's ball" from our window. The place was clean, SO spacious, and the beds were absolutely comfortable! A review said there was no blow dryer, but we had it our room. The really nice thing was that the hotel maids cleaned our room daily and it was spotless. Dishes were washed in the dish washer, carpet was vaccummed, beds were neatly made, new towels restocked, and sofa bed was folded back in place. Excellent service! Also, very quiet! We were not bothered at all with any sound from adjacent rooms.

The location is ideal. The 6 subway train is located a block and an avenue away. There are a lot of restaurants and markets, and a Duane Reade nearby. If you need to do some grocery, head to Food Emporium (on 3rd Avenue and between 31st and 32nd St.). They have a Dunkin Donuts right next door, if you want some quick morning breakfast.

Check out was quick and simple. They print out your bill the night before your check out day and slip it under the door for you to review. If you needed a cab, they will hail it for you and have it ready.

My parents stayed in the hotel room a lot, so I was glad that they had a nice, spacious, and comfortable place for their stay. There is a spa and fitness center located on the second floor too. They do offer room service, but I did not use it.

Will definitely stay here again whenever I need a place in the city!

I CAN'T BELIEVE I've never rated this hotel.

I stayed here in November '10 around Thanksgiving, and it was one of the better hotel experiences of my life. My boyfriend (and travel partner) needs a handicap accessible room, so we've had our share of hotel flubs and runarounds. In fact, more hotels get our reservations wrong than right (resulting in some uncomfortable nights, especially in high-traffic travel times).

No such worry with the Affinia Dumont.

They got us in the right room at the right time, did a fantastic job checking us in and meeting any special needs even though we arrived after midnight, and basically made us feel like rock stars our entire stay.

The rooms are HUGE, albeit a little older, and the location is, quite frankly, stellar. Blocks away from grand central station, and we were able to walk or subway anywhere we needed to go easily. How much time are you going to spend in the room anyway?!

If you absolutely need a night off from the bright city lights, though, there are multiple bodegas, restaurants, and take-out places steps away.

Love, love, loved the Affinia. Great value, great service.

I had high expectations because of the reviews I read.
We actually stayed here in May 2010 with a 1 and 2 year old.
Wonderful location, we took the train from DC and just walked over, took about 20 minutes. Service was wonderful but we were completely disappointed with the cleanliness of the room. The windows, furniture, and the floor were so dusty and with young kids, this was a huge concern for us. Our one year old was not yet walking and we were not at all comfortable with leaving her on the floor.
We did not spend much time in the room so it was ok but still we were there for breakfasts (our kids eat very early- it was nice to have the kitchenette) and night time (they went to bed very early as well) - so my husband and I spent a lot of time in the living area and definitely were frustrated by the dusty furnitures.

The Affinia Dumont made our trip to New York a complete experience. The staff is very nice, professional and accommodating. They did their best to make us feel comfortable, and yet so effortlessly, too. They had everything from roll-away beds to 5 different types of pillows, extra linens, umbrellas, etc. All you need to do is just ask and someone will be at your door within 10-15 minutes.  

The location overall is perfect and accessible. It's right in the middle of places for first/second/third time visitors. There are restaurants everywhere near the hotel, you'll never go hungry, any time of the day! You are literally 5 New York blocks from the Empire State Building, across the streets from Duane Reade drugstore if you need to get water, snacks, insoles for walking, etc., a few walking blocks from shops like Zara, H&M, Banana Republic, Express, etc. Also, it's close to Time Square, Korea town, Madison Ave, Park Ave, etc.

We rented the 1 bed room suite with living room and kitchen area. The suite was about 650-700 square feet. Price was about $400 a night, which according to my price hunting was average for 4+ star hotels in Manhattan. It's very clean, and the bed, is very comfortable.  The hotel and room had a posh and luxurious feel and ambiance. The sofa in the living room has a pull out full sized bed. Roll-aways are available at no extra charge. The king size bed in the bed room is very comfortable. Each person can select a pillow that fits his sleeping needs.  The only thing is there is only one bathroom. (There were 5 of us in that suite - 4 adults and 1 teen).

If you need internet access, there are two computers in the posh lobby with free internet access. There's also connection in the rooms, but for a fee.

We will definitely come back the next time we visit Manhattan again - perfect location for food, shopping, sight seeing, Manhattan experience!

2 rooms, 10 nights. Fantastic. Got the weekly rate, and it would have been a fantastic deal at 30% more than we paid.

Rooms were huge (for Manhattan) and very clean, staff was great and very attentive. When we needed to stay an extra day, there were no rooms...until the management team led by Frances spun their magic and found an extra day for both rooms without us having to switch rooms.

I've been Platinum Marriott for over 10 years, so I know hotels worldwide...this is a true winner.

Will stay again without hesitation.

This was our first time in NYC, and we couldn't have found a better place to stay. The rooms are absolutely comfortable and gorgeous, the staff is friendly and bend over backwards to make sure your experience is the best it can be.

We arrived in the early hours of the morning (2am) expecting to have our room ready for us to get some rest. The online travel agency we used overbooked the hotel (as we were told they tend to do a lot) so they put us in one of their lofts next door for the night and then transferred our things the following day to our 31st floor room, which had the most amazing views of Midtown Manhattan.

The fact that even the studio suite, the smallest room they have, has a kitchen is awesome. You don't have to go and eat out if you don't want to; there's a great little grocery store/deli next door, so you can buy a few things and cook in your room. The coffee that the hotel provides for you is actually pretty good for a good start to your day.

The room was clean, as was the bathroom. Housekeeping was very professional and accommodating.

All in all, a great experience.

Horrible, construction, room not ready, forced to wander around without access to shower with a busy schedule of business meetings.  Awful customer service.  Had to fight to get the desk to offer us a room to use.  For a 3PM check in it is now 6PM and still no room!  Run away, very disorganized.  No manager on duty to speak to either.

Just stayed here for 4 nights using Shell points.  It is a perfectly respectable, clean and customer friendly hotel with comfy beds and a decent thread count.  Do yourself a favor and check in with David Bach their only superstar concierge and have him tell you his must-dos.  He is amazing.  Everything he recommended was top notch.  We would also recommend eating at Pepolino Italian restaurant near TriBeCa.  It is deelish!

Back to the hotel.  Great central location.  Close to the subway. Rooms off the street facing the outdoor courtyard are very quiet.  Would stay here again for sure.  And I'm pretty picky.

We booked this through Priceline at a pretty amazing rate. Reading through TripAdvisor, I was legitimately excited. Then I came on here and read some not-so-wonderful reviews... did Priceline let us down?

Lesson learned: while I love Yelp, a lot of the reviews are too picky for their own good.

Could the Affinia Dumont use some technological updates? Yes, it could. The TV quality is shit. But if you're in NYC and worried about watching television, you're in the wrong city, my friends. The TV is fine for what it should be used for: channel surfing after a night out or the morning news. However, upgrading to WiFi would be beneficial, even if there are tons of free WiFi spots within walking distance.

Aaaaaaaanyway... for the price we paid, this was a major hit. The room was HUGE (with a kitchen!), the bed was really comfortable, the view was amazing, check-in was friendly and effortless, everything was very clean and the location was fabulous. All of those factors are important to me in a NYC hotel room and the Affinia delivered.

The only drawback was getting woken up at 9am by housekeeping. We should have put the Do Not Disturb sign on the door, but since checkout isn't until noon, I think waiting to knock until 10am is doable. Or, just check the computer system.

I'd go back here in a minute though, especially for the Priceline rate.

Paid way too much to stay here during fashion week and the 9/11 memorial weekend but we have to say that the hotel really surprised us (in a good way). Hotel staff were really friendly.

They were in the midst of remodeling when we were there but they got us into a newly done corner room so everything was new- carpets, tables, TVs, beds, bathroom, kitchen. Lots of space for a hotel room (even more considering its in NYC). beds were super comfortable

It's super close to the subway (less than a block) empire state building, tons of restaurants, and lots of markets so you can totally cook in the full kitchen! Theatre district and rocker feller center are only a few blocks away.

We've been using the Affinia Dumont for years for corporate travelers and company meetings. Its a great spot for private events that require a large ballroom or semi-private dinner parties in the restaurant attached (Niles).

They have never disappointed, due to comfortable modern digs and attention to detail.  Paid wifi keeps the business people happy, and the modern vibe keeps visitors impressed.  Corner rooms with seating areas have enough room for a small, casual meeting with coworkers, too!

Just had a nice 3 night stay here. Good deal for the price! Everything updated and very clean: surprise furnished kitchen included! Rooms decent size for NYC. Mini- bar/snacks. Large desk/work area. Quiet-
Building has 30+ floors so you might get an awesome view- we were on 12. One block from tube station(6) very nice fitness center on 2nd floor.
Picky complaints: no blow dryer, flatscreen ran analog cable so the sound gradually didn't match the action. Few lights burned out.
Would stay here again.

So- I come to NYC pretty darn often. I have stayed at a variety of hotels- and I can truly say- I LIKE THIS ONE!

Friendly and extremely helpful staff. They go out of their way to make sure that you have what you need, and if you don't they help you get it.

The size of the desk is PERFECT! Unfortunately, when I come here, it is to work, and work I do. I had a multi level desk with two different sources of lighting and a very comfy chair. This arrangement let me spread out and GET SHIT DONE! Exactly what I needed.

Each Affinia hotel has a specialty. The Dumont focuses on Fitness. If I were not exhausted from my 3 state in 2 day whirlwind of meetings (including the one that started at 6:30 %$^$%$%$%$ AM) this morning- I would appreciate it. As it stands, I am more excited about the large bed and selection of pillows.

I like to spread out when I am on the road and make myself at home. This is easily accomplished in this place- especially with the kitchenette. A bit of Wine to go with my WHINE and a place to store my left overs.

Life is good. I wish all business travel were this comfy!

What surprised me was the price we paid for a room and how big the room was! Our room had a full on kitchen with fridge and microwave and lots of storage space to hang clothes and put away shoes. I mean ya the decor was a little dated but it was CLEAN. The pillows and bed were really comfy. The location was decent enough for us, we liked walking everywhere so that we could explore the city and hailing a taxi down is never extremely difficult in NYC.

I have stayed here countless times when up for work I've always credited them for being so clean- well on this work trip we had to call down to have an exterminator to come as we had cockroaches in our room i was pretty skeeved but i get it , it happens but i just didn't want it to happen to me :( they i guess had someone come in a spray while we were gone but i just couldnt get passed it. Otherwise customer service is nice and the rest of the room is great the beds are comforatlble and we had plenty of spcae

Love it. Since I suffer food allergies, and would prefer not going into shock when I'm away from home, hotels/apartments with kitchens are a must. In NYC this generally means either you luck out with a sweet apartment or you end up with a closet. Total crapshoot.

The Affinia is always awesome though. Huge rooms, incredibly comfortable beds, a room service menu that doesn't suck, parking across the street, super friendly staff, did I mention the amazing beds? Honestly the best sleep experiences I've had in years, both times I've stayed here.

They have an extensive room service and pillow menu, a gym, a spa, all sorts of health conscious packages for visitors, and apparently random classes too (like language immersion ones)

My only complaint is the wired internet. So many places offer wireless now that it's a shame that they're lagging behind on this one thing.

I absolutely love this place and would suggest it to everyone.

I really enjoyed my stay here. I had room 216, nice sized room, king sized bed, walk in tiled shower. Very quiet, could not hear the other rooms or guests in the hallways. The room exceeded my expectations. The hotel has a swanky updated feel to it. Very clean. Comfortable lobby and bar onsite.

The room rates are very reasonable for NY, although WiFi at $13 was disappointing.

To be fair, I have to say my expectations were quite high for this hotel after I stayed at the Affinia in Chicago (which is AWESOME). The rooms at the Dumont need to be renovated, and I mean completely. Not just on the surface. While having a normal sized refrigerator and "full" kitchen could be useful, I don't see how anyone would use it in a city with such great food within walking distance in every direction. The kitchen in our room was outdated and kind of dingy. So we didn't really appreciate its being there. The bathroom was tiny. So tiny in fact that it was uncomfortable. There wasn't any space in there to put anything down, so women beware...you're going to have to put your makeup on in a tiny spice with nowhere to balance your stuff. In my opinion, they should get rid of the dingy kitchen and expand the bathrooms.

Although the hotel seemed clean, it didn't feel as clean as one would hope. Maybe that's because its in need of a renovation.

For the price and location, it was worth staying there. But if you're planning on spending any time in your room or expecting a beautiful and luxurious hotel, look elsewhere.

PROS:

Kitchen
Stylish decor
Top notch service (They let us check in about 11 am after a red eye...very, very grateful! Always ready to get you a cab or help with your luggage.)
No free wireless ($13.95/day)

CONS:

So-so location (It seemed wherever we had to go it was either a 6+ blk walk or a cab ride)

Here's the big con that knocked them down an entire star - Billed as an "Executive Fitness" hotel, we bunked next to a roomful of rowdy partiers of the male persuasion. They kept us up all night long on Fri/Sat nights. If I would've been there with my girlfriends, we probably would have joined them, but alas...this was a business trip, not a party trip. Management took care of it as best as they could, but the fact that this is even possible at the hotel makes it unlikely we would go back if in NYC on a biz trip.

When I think of a five star hotel my brain flashes images of the Ritz Carlton and the Four Seasons. Reading reviews of the Affina Dumont on both Yelp and Traveladvisor.com I was given the impression that this hotel property would also be in the same league. Turns out it isn't. This hotel is a 3 star hotel in a four star location.

When I began looking for places to stay I checked multiple websites and two hotels came up with some really great pricing. The Ritz Carlton in Battery Park had rooms for $225 a night and the Affina Dumont $159. I was torn between the two. The Ritz is a known commodity but it's location in the Financial District was not my number 1 choice. The Affina Dumont at $159 was less and rated higher by my fellow yelpers and situated in a more desirable location.

I ended up choosing the Affina Dumont. Like I mentioned, the hotel is in a great location in Murray Hill and just a short walk to the Empire State Building and other points of interest. The rooms are nice and spacious by Manhattan standards. They are a bit dated, but have everything you need to make your stay comfortable. I requested a high floor with a view but was given a room on the 10th floor with no view. Not a big deal but it does demonstrate that even on a slow weekend that you may not have your request honored.

The front desk staff is friendly and helpful and eager to offer suggestions. The Concierge is well connected and is able to score tickets for events etc. He was even able to print out tickets for both MOMA and the Met which was nice and we were not forced to stand in line at either place.

For the price I paid, I was very happy with I got. And when my travels take me back will consider staying here again.

My aunt got a suite in the Affinia Dumont through some sort of a time share program, and I stayed with her along with my mom, my brother, and my cousin.  The room was really nice, very clean and spacious.  The bedroom had a big bed and plenty of room around it, and the outer living room had a fold-out sofa bed that was large enough to sleep three.  I was the lucky middle, and I was just fine sleeping between mother and brother.  There was also a small kitchen, a luxury in any New York living space.

The lobby and amenities were pretty standard, and the location was not the best.  That said, our room was comfortable and thus served its purpose.  This isn't a destination hotel, but it's definitely solid.

I don't even know what to say - I guess that's a testament to how memorable the experience was here. I'm somewhat impressed by the profesional staff, great amenities, and decent rooms but I really wouldn't go too far out of my way to stay here.

I enjoyed a night here during my visit to the city and a few things really stood out. First off, the rooms are incredibly small! They were just large enough to fit a bed, and everything else seemed a bit overpriced for the experience. Also, I know this is to be expected at 90% of hotels but I think the candy and beverages were priced at 450% markup from the original prices... yaaaaa right ;) ! In addition, I don't really like that you have to pay to use the Wi-Fi. Again, I know this is the norm but why go with the flow when you offer free Wi-Fi in the lobby? It just seems really inconvenient to me.

I didn't really feel like much was going on in the immediate area, but I guess everywhere I needed to go was a 10 minute cab ride away. Either way, it's not a 'bad' place but I believe there are superior options nearby to consider.

New York hotel rooms tend to be small and (often very) overpriced for what they offer. The Affinia Dumont is relatively well located (Murray Hill) and has the distinction of offering kitchenettes, which can come in handy -- especially with kids.

There's no lobby to speak of and the rooms are fairly typical NY hotel rooms, which is to say: adequate. Our beds were comfortable.

The woman at the front desk characterized our room as a deluxe room (I suppose because it had a view), which it was not. We were charged a $15 surcharge on a fully pre-paid room for a higher floor. This was frustrating and the front desk had no good response.

The money itself wasn't the problem; however it felt like being "nickel and dimed."

I had stayed here once before years ago, in a larger room and liked it. However I don't think I would return.

I've definitely experienced better and I suspect a few of the reviews of this hotel are staff written, especially the one from NJ.
The room is just OK, it could be called a little depressing, it's dull and could use some brightening up with paint, the window treatment is slightly frayed, bathroom is tiny.  The kitchen is useful for families, but we are a couple.
Upon check-in you notice that the furniture in the tiny lobby looks dirty, the staff we experienced were not into giving good service, example, when our adult children checked in later than we did, they were given a key to our room, and not the one that was reserved for them.  When we asked for a taxi when leaving for dinner, we were told which corner to go stand at.
I was told that breakfast is served in the hotel, but learned upon checking in that it is not, if you have the breakfast package, it will be served to you in your room.
Overall, I would say that we stayed here for the price, given that we are hosting our kids, but I would not want to stay here again.

Great location and a beautiful hotel. We got an amazing deal the week before our stay on priceline.com . The room wasn't ready at 3:00 so we waited for a bit and then when it still wasn't ready, they upgraded us to an upper floor suite. Service at the front desk was very friendly and helpful.
The pillow menu is a fun touch and I tried the magnetic pillow just for kicks. The standard pillows in the rooms were great though.
Got room service for breakfast which was surprisingly well priced and delicious. Mmmm.... crispy bacon.
Only complaint was that on two occasions, we called down to guest services and then the spa/fitness center and no one answered the phone.

I'm literally in the last 30 minutes of my stay at the Affiinia right now, so I figured what better time to compose my review?

First I'll lay out the positives:

The room was in fact huge, the biggest I've stayed at in NYC and I had a kitchen.

Service was excellent, one employee didn't have change for a $100 (yeah that's how I roll), but ran next door to another business to break my bill. Another time a party was ranging in the room next door at 3:30 am. I called the front desk and they took care of it within 5 minutes and I had no further noise problems.

Unfortunately I had some issues that will probably keep me from staying here again...

After a few days of sleeping on their bed my neck and back really started to hurt (I've never had back or neck issues before), I think it was because their pillows were too hard. Ironically they do provide a "pillow menu" in the room, but all the pillows on the menu are pretty gimmicky (such as a pillow with speakers inside). I called and asked if they had anything softer, but the only option was to switch to their hypoallergenic pillow. It did help a bit, but don't you think if you're going to bother offering pillow choices the most obvious options would be: soft, medium or hard? That's what they've got at Bed, Bath and Beyond... just saying.

Another major beef I have with this hotel is the decor and furniture. When I first walked into my room I felt kind bummed, it just wasn't that nice. I did get used to the beat up furniture, old TV, and lack of desk, but my initial reaction was... bleh.

Finally the room wasn't ready for me when I arrived at 8 pm, I had to wait about 15 minutes for them to get it together. Not a huge deal, but really... at 8pm? Also I was put on the 3rd floor, which meant no views except some rooftop exhaust pipes... ah well, better luck next time.

Just got home to California after a 6 night stay at the Affinia Dumont.  I've stayed here in the past and really enjoy this hotel.  However, on this most recent stay, we had a few issues with our room.  1.  The room temp. would not exceed 68 degrees.  2.  The exhaust/vent in the bathroom didn't work.  3.  Towel rack in the bathroom was separating from the wall.  4.  Kitchen didn't have  paper towels.  When I inquired about this, the front desk said they're a "green" hotel and they don't use paper towels in the kitchens.  Well, I'm sure any guest would like to have paper towels available in the kitchen.

Have to give 5 stars on this place. Super reasonable rates for NYC and the rooms are normal hotel size rooms with a kitchenette in a great part of town.

I will always stay here for my future trips to NYC.

For a last minute desperate search for a hotel, we found a 'studio' at the Affina Dumont. The $300 for that one night was steep, but the room was amazing!

Large bed
Comfortable sheets
Good A/C system
Large TV
Amazing view
Kitchen included in studio
Bathroom kind of small
Elevators were slow due to maintenance
Decent location

Would love to stay here again when I'm rolling in the dough.

I booked 3 nights within a week of visiting, because it was a nice hotel at the most affordable rate. Location is great as well. You're close enough to the action like Times Square, Top of the Rock, Empire State Building, etc., but not SO close that you can't get a good night's rest because of the ruckus.

Service was fine. I asked for a humidifier in the middle of the night, and they weren't able to provide it for me immediately because they were all out. The next morning at approximately 11am, they brought it to me. There's a list of items that they provide free of charge inside the Affinia Dumont book. The room is bigger than an standard room at a low end hotel in Las Vegas. AND it has a full kitchen with pots and utensils. The refrigerator was also stocked with drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Their bathroom amenities is the brand Philosophy.

No free wi-fi. Boo.

This is one of the best hotels in Manhattan that I've found.  I am here a lot for work and have been searching for a "go-to" hotel for a while now. For NY the rooms are huge!!  That for me is the most important.  When you are on a business trip, there's nothing worse than having your suitcase take up  a quarter of the room.  The rooms are so spacious and the bathrooms are well sized also.  There is also a kitchen which is such a bonus... And a desk .. And walking room.

The staff was so accommodating - they upgraded our room to the biggest suite and on a higher floor... Just because.  Glad to have found a great NYC hotel and will definitely be back!

Recently stayed a few nights there, and I really enjoyed it.

- Great location: 2 blocks from the 33rd (6) stop; drug store across the street, dunkin donut right next door, and a little deli/market around the corner.

- Room: the size was humongous for NYC, it was clean (even though the small kitchen looks ready for a remodel soon) and quite; my room was on a single digit floor (request for a upper floor denied), so a view was non-existent.

- Staff: Everyone I've encountered were friendly and helpful.

The only thing that lost them a star was the CHARGE that I noticed on my credit card a few days after checking out, mind you everything was already set when I checked out. When I called to inquire about it, the gentleman asked if I took anything from the room and didn't argue when I said no and said he would remove the charge (and it has been reflected on my credit card statement). Lesson here? CHECK YOUR CREDIT CARD BILL when you get home!

I just adore this hotel. I have stayed here 3 times and each time it is just perfect. The location is central to everything. The rooms are spacious, particularly for NY rooms. Ours had two beds and a kitchenette and a great view of the East River. The prices are always very low copared to other NY properties as well. We book the package that comes with a bottle of wine and a cupcake; something that pleases bot the boy and his momma!

The staff is friednly and accomodating and they ever offer a pillow menu. They brought my son one that attached to an iPod for listening to music.

The elevators are not as slow as everyone says and it is above a Dunkin Donuts --  a plus for morning coffee!  I will say the walls are thin and you can hear people stomping above but this is not the hotel's fault. I will stay ehre again.

I have a really hard time reviewing hotels in Manhattan because they are all just so freakin over priced. This same hotel in Phoenix would go for $100 a night, tops but in NYC we paid 3 times that much. However that also means that every hotel in my budget is going to be pretty worn out and lower end so this one is probably better than the others we have stayed at. The major pluses were that the doormen and other staff were all very friendly and they also offer a free wine hour daily from 5-6. We weren't able to partake in this since we were out doing touristy stuff all day but its still a nice touch.

The best part about this hotel, and really the reason I gave it an extra star is the size of the rooms. Most hotel rooms in Manhattan are super tiny. I don't know about the regular rooms but we got a suite and it was humungous. A family of five could be quite comfortable here for a week. There was a completely separate living room with a pull out sofa, a ton of closet space, and even a kitchen with sink, microwave and full size fridge. They provided some dishes but no pots and pans. The suite was only about $20 more than the base room so for a family that would be a good deal. We didn't really use the kitchen since we always eat out on vacation but it was nice to have the separate living room so hubby could watch tv and get on his laptop while letting me sleep in.

Other reviewers have complained about the noise, but again that is true of all NYC hotels so nothing new. A nice touch was that they provided ear plugs in the bedside table (new and sealed in plastic) which I was able to utilize during our stay. They also have a full pillow menu so hubby could get his tempurpedic pillow. So, it was nice that they had little touches like that. The main downside was the bathroom. I was really surprised at how tiny it was given that the room was so large. They should take out the coat closet and expand the bathrooms because seriously you couldn't even fit two people in there at the same time. And the towels were worn out and they had the pump dispenser for shampoo in the shower, something you usually only find at really cheap and seedy hotels. Also, the makeup mirror was coming out of the wall... I guess the bathroom in general showed its age more than the rest of the room.

This place is probably only worth 3 1/2 stars but I gave them an extra one since it was centrally located and also in a location where it was easy to get a cab. I would consider staying here again.

I was in a two-bed suite with kitchenette and living room. Both rooms were spacious, nothing great. The couch and chair in the sitting area looked a little drab and could use updating. Room on the thirteenth floor was quiet, only noise you could hear from the street were the occasional siren. Also, the four elevators were amazingly fast which meant there was little to no waiting when returning to or leaving your room.

Staff were very pleasant and attentive. The porter was especially friendly and was able to easily retrieve our bags and hail us a cab. They held our bags for us without problem after check-out at noon until we left for Grand Central at around 3:30 pm.

The fitness center, which is open 24 hours to hotel guests was spacious and fairly well equipped for a hotel gym. One of the better in-hotel gyms I have used while traveling. Well air conditioned and clean.

My only complaint would be the beds were not as comfortable as I would have liked though not unbearable. The blanket/sheet also did not keep me very warm during the night as they were not very thick and my friends liked to keep the room cold.

Would stay again if in the area.

THE WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVER BEEN TO!!  Affinia Dumont is hands DOWN THE WORST HOTEL I HAVE EVERY BEEN TO AND WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE.  P.S. The room and bathroom was disgusting....lots OF MOLD and something was biting my sons arm so we checked for BED BUGS!!!

My family of 4 arrived well in advance of check in and we were told that our room was not ready, which was fine.  So we stored our luggage and walked the city until 3pm.   Please note that we were on our last day in NYC after a two week trip with a 7 and 8 year in tow.  We had booked our room a month in advance since it fell over Labor Day Weekend and US Open.  We secured a Junior Skyline Suite with king bed and pull out....a recommended size for a family of 4.    A few days after I booked our room my sister suggested staying with her out on the island so I called to cancel; however I booked an "advance purchase" rate so we were not able to cancel. Not a problem, we honored our side of the arrangement.   On the day of check in we returned to the hotel at 3pm.  At this time I was told that they did not have our room available for us, they only had a studio suite available.  A studio suite is recommended for 2 people.  Instantly I was upset....why didn't you tell us at 11am when we arrived at the hotel?...we still could have caught a ride to my sisters.  No one bothered to call or inform us in advance, in fact I was told that they had been overbooked for weeks due to Labor Day and US Open.   The AGM on duty (the GM was out of town over Labor Day weekend) provided no solutions....we were now a family of 4 in a suite for 2 people.  I mentioned that I had called to cancel weeks prior and she said that if she had answered the phone that she would have accepted our cancellation since they knew they were so overbooked.   I stood in front of her now exhausted, in tears and frustrated that this was our last night in NY.  She stood opposite of me telling me that they would now accept my cancellation and we could check out.   In addition she called her sister properties in the city along with some other hotels to see if they had any other larger rooms available and IT WAS ALL BOOKED OUT.....of course it is .....its LABOR DAY WEEKEND AND THE US OPEN.  So we could now check out of Affinia Dumont and what walked the streets of NY since you had just mentioned that the entire city was booked.  Thank you for the brilliant solution!    All and all they forgot that their business is hospitality and they handled the situation so poorly that they should reconsider their field.  From A-Z the most frustrating and disappointing experience.  
Not only am I writing this review on Yelp but I will be contacting their corporate offices.   I find it ridiculous that  1.) there was no GM on duty over a holiday weekend, 2.) they knew going into the holiday weekend they were overbooked and didn't honor those that booked earlier 3.) they made no concessions or apologizes.  THE WORST!!!

This is a hotel that we find CONSISTENTLY good. No, not good, OUTSTANDING. You feel right at home here. In fact, we visit every 3-4 months and when you walk in, it is so charming to hear your name called from "out of the blue!" We always travel here w/our dog and he is welcomed with open arms. Donald make his feel like a king. He's usually the first face you see when you exit your vehicle. So pleasant and inviting (Donald AND the hotel!) :-D

If you have a pet, this is one of the most outstanding places to stay at. If you don't, it is just a wonderful place with comfortable accommodations. It's NYC, so the prices are expectedly on the higher side, but this is not The Plaza prices!!

Expect a great stay when you come to the Affinia Dumont Hotel on East 34th Street in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan. You will NOT be disappointed.

Thank you to ALL the staff that make this place fantastic.

A very nice hotel. Made extra special by the warm and welcoming staff.
Great location for subway/buses and Grand Central.
Wine served from 5 - 6. Great start to the evening, and great way to meet staff and other guests.
We had a great room on 27th floor with a view of Chrysler Building. Able to open windows for fresh air. Kitchen had all we needed, but could have used small jar of cooking oil, salt & pepper and kitchen towels.
Had a 24/7 deli next door for whatever you need, which was handy.
Housekeeping great and very thorough.
You can order the type of pillow you want. Beds very comfy.
LOVED this hotel.
Thank you Affinia Dumont!
Not the cheapest hotel, but we are talking NY, worth every penny to us.

We stayed here for a long weekend and have decided that no longer will we try to find a room in one of the big chain hotels- this is where we want to stay! The bellman, front desk and concierge were very helpful and friendly. Loved the huge room and fabulous views! It's great to have a mini bar and full kitchen for our stay. Comfy beds, large shower, fast elevator and location, location, location!

We held an event in the rafferty room last week and Paul, the manager was amazing.  He set up the room beautifully and was super helpful and accommodating with all our request.  The hotel is intimate and had strong wifi, which was very important for our event.  Paul helped our team with security and made sure our guest did not pocket our expensive merchandise.  I definitely recommend requesting paul for any event as he went above and beyond to make sure everything went well.

The room was larger than I expected.  Comfortable and friendly staff.  

It was close to the Empire State Building and good walking distance to Times Square and Rockefeller Center.  

I loved that there was a Dunkin Donut's right next door.

The valet parking was about $50, which is typical for NYC.

I would stay here again and hope to get a room closer to the top floor.

We found a great deal online for our stay.  The room is nice and can be cleaner...but then again, I am my mom's child...it is good enough.  The heater made a clicking noise all night and I swear there was a slight gas smell - our fault for not bringing that to their attention.

Actually the one thing that made them really lovely is:  Donald Garcia and Nelson Garcia at the door.  Kudos to the two of them who offered great customer service!

Donald was on duty when we first got in, he was concerned about me using my brand new leather gloves (present from my sis) - warned me that I will ruin them in the snow!

Nelson was on duty the last day we were there.  I forgot to send postcards (of course, I'd like to have the NYC USPS mark!)...after waiting for a long while at the desk (one staff while there's a line of 2 waiting)...he took charge and asked someone in the office!  Well, to find that they actually do not carry stamps.  To my surprise, he offered to post them for me the next day!  How is THAT for customer service?  I'd say 10 stars for that!

Yes, I think we'd stay there again if we are ever in NYC again!

We stayed at The Affinia Dumont for three days, two nights in November of 2012. My brother, sister, boyfriend and I were attending the BIGBANG concert in Newark and had decided to add an extra night to our trip. I work for a luxury hotel chain and was unfortunately not able to secure a room at our NY property. I had searched and signed up for every travel flash site, scoured Priceline and Hotwire, and lurked on BetterBidding to see which hotel would offer the best value for our party of 4. It was really stressing me out as I was weighing the pros/cons of booking two rooms vs a suite. The Affinia chain came highly recommended by a colleague. After doing a bit of research, the Affinia Dumont's Advanced Booking rate (non-refundable) turned out to be an extreme value--even more affordable than staying at my company's NY property, had I been able to get a room!

A week before our trip, Hurricane Sandy hit. As we watched the devastation unfold on TV, in the back of my mind I was nervous about our upcoming stay. I was confident that everything will be "fine," as we in the industry know, in times of adversity, we come together as a team and still strive to look after our guests. Even though I'm sure the staff had other priorities, the hotel's website was always updated with the latest happenings. This line of communication left me with a good impression of The Affinia Dumont. As a guest, it provided me with reassurance but also helped me to manage my expectations. As it was, when we arrived in the city, power was reinstated to the hotel, trains were running, and the concert in Newark was not cancelled. It was about as normal as it could be, all things considered.

Check-in was seamless, and our bags were promptly brought up to our room. Our suite was well-appointed and spacious. It had two queen beds, a sofa bed, a kitchenette, and a desk. It was more than enough space for 4 people, but it was nice because you had room to move around without being on top of one another. There was also a TV in the bedroom and one in the living room, so there's no quibbling over watching a movie versus "Duck Dynasty." I had known there was a kitchenette so had brought a sponge and some dish washing liquid, but they had thoughtfully provided these amenities. There's also a dishwasher, cookware, coffee maker, mugs, dishes, and cutlery. Beds were comfortable, and a pillow menu is available if you sign up through My Affinia. Noise was so-so. I'm a heavy sleeper so I didn't notice, but my sister mentioned that you can hear ambulances go "whup-whup-whup" in the night. The bathroom was also large by New York standards. I appreciated the vanity for additional counter space. Water pressure was decent as well.

Though we only had the suite serviced once, Housekeeping did a thorough job, even going so far as to wash our dishes in the sink.

The location of the hotel was truly excellent. Many great restaurants are within walking distance, and we discovered we only used the subway once or twice during our stay.

Our second night, we were all up late and overheard a couple arguing and a woman shouting, "Let me go!" I called down to the Front Desk to have their security investigate. As a result of their argument, I think the woman was locked out of her room, but she may have been asked to leave the hotel by Security. I feel guilty reporting it but at the same time I didn't want any harm to come to the woman. (I hope she's okay.)

Other than that, our stay was comfortable and uneventful. We had a late bus so when we checked out (early), we checked our bags with the bellman. When we returned, it took a long time for the bellman to retrieve our bags. We later found out that he had gone on break so another person fetched the bags for us. When I came home, I discovered an $8 minibar charge on my credit card statement. We had brought our own beverages so didn't take anything from the refrigerator. A call to the hotel resulted in an apology and my account was credited. I was kind of annoyed because I felt I had tipped well throughout our stay, but at the same time I was pleased that my issue was resolved quickly and without question.

Overall, a pleasant stay, and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. I highly recommend this hotel for groups or for people looking for a spacious yet affordable option while in New York!

After getting comfirmation for 2 rooms and a follow up email from General Manager Jennifer Baldwin to welcome us to the hotel, they sold our rooms out from underneath us 6 days later saying the hotel was over booked.  Never trust that this hotel will honor their commitments.

I stay in NY 2-3 times a month- different places depending on my meeting location. This is a nice hotel.  Clean and rooms are much larger than typical manhattan hotels.  Pretty expensive though. Didnt see the benefits of the extra cost. Plus $130 to park my jeep cherokee for about 28 hours- complete ripoff.  Won't be staying here again- don't like being taken advantage of..

I really loved my stay at the Affinia Dumont and I can't think of one negative thing to say about it.

We arrived in NYC at 9:30 am and proceeded to the hotel so they could stow our bags until check-in. To our surprise, they had one room available so we were able to check-in immediately. The front desk staff was friendly and professional. They also have a wine hour in the evening, no complaints there!

Our room was HUGE and not just for NYC standards. We had a suite with two Queens beds, a large desk, a large wardrobe, a kitchenette and a large bathroom.  Most importantly, it was clean. I'm kind of a germaphobe so I checked the mattress, behind the bed, etc. and looked great. A++ on the room. Our room did not overlook the street so we had zero street noise. I slept like a baby every night.

The concierge was very helpful.This hotel is not in a very touristy area which I loved! The neighborhood is great. We ended up walking most of the time since most of our destinations were in Midtown. There is a store/deli on the corner of Lexington and 34th that has great deli sandwiches. We also ate at the Thai restaurant (ViV) next door and it was delicious.

Overall, I'd recommend Affinia Dumont to anyone looking for a fair priced NYC hotel.  I'll definitely be back!

I've stayed in a lot of hotels in NYC for the past several years, and I thought I was pretty settled with the Hotel Mela near Times Square as my accommodation of choice (location, location, location!) - even though the rooms can get awfully small if you don't negotiate a lot at the front desk. But now Jamie W. and I have a new favorite - the Affinia Dumont in Murray Hill on 34th near Lexington. It honestly provides the best value we've experienced in Manhattan - a really large room with a kitchen, desk and all the pillows you want for an average of around $200 per night for four nights over the Memorial Day weekend. Really a great deal for a four-star hotel all things considered (Saturday night's the killer at $330).

The location was great for us since we were just a couple of blocks from the 6 line, and there's always the Lexington Avenue bus - or as Katharine Hepburn told Spencer Tracy when she was drunk with champagne at an office party in one of their comedies, the "Mexican" Avenue bus. No serapes though. Besides, it's actually not that far a stroll to Grand Central, Times Square or Union Square, and it's good for you to walk up and down Manhattan anyway. But you can also find good budget places to eat close by as there were a lot of ethnic eateries all along Lexington. There was even a weekend street fair for six blocks of Lexington when we were there, so nearby eating options were not a problem.

I thought the hotel staff was polite and attentive. They were also quite patient if you happen to have stayed up too long the night before. Hey, we were vacationing in the city that never sleeps after all. King of the hill, top of the heap. Moreover, they accommodated our early morning arrival by taking our bags and letting us use the large restroom in the back to change our clothes before coming back for our real check-in that afternoon. The king-size bed was comfortable, and I was not kidding about the pillows. They actually offer quite a menu of different density pillows which they deliver to your room right away.

The compact kitchen turned out to be handy for the fruit salad I would assemble for us in the morning from the Murray Hill Market right on the corner. Best of all, we never had a problem with noise even though the hotel was filled with large families judging from the chaos in the small lobby. I've given a NYC hotel five stars only once before, and it was for a heavily discounted room at the now-prohibitively expensive Distrikt Hotel near the Port Authority, but this time, the rating is fully warranted. We'll be back, and now I know to ask for a higher floor to get that spectacular view of the Chrysler Building.

We stayed here for two nights, and the price was decent for a four-star hotel (Expedia and Hotwire has it as 4-star). But, it doesn't feel like a 4 star hotel, though. It is very basic and clean, but not posh or fancy.

The studio room is large. It included a dated-looking kitchenette (it was very clean), but there was not a table to sit and eat in the room. That seems strange, if you have a kitchen, but no table to sit on.

The bathroom was also very clean, but seemed dated as well. There is not a bathroom fan to air out "typical" bathroom smells. You don't get the complimentary cute samples of boutique shampoo, soap, etc. Only a sample of lotion. The shampoo, conditioner and shower gel were all in bolted-down bottles in the shower, which were refilled every day. The conditioner dispenser kept getting stuck, but that is not a big deal, I guess.

There were some noisy people staying across the hall from us. They kept slamming their doors and laughing annoyingly loud in the early morning. You can hear many things through the walls. They provide free ear plugs, but it doesn't really help.

Wifi is free in the lobby, but only free for 1 hour in your room.

The people who work here are really nice and friendly.

There is a "comfort hour" every night, which means free wine for an hour. That is a good amenity. It is held in the tiny lobby. We didn't stay for our drink, but brought it up to our room since there are not enough places to sit.

Parking across the street was $33/day, but they have valet here for about $10 more. The location of the hotel is in Murray Hill neighborhood. It isn't crazy-busy or super loud. There are many good restaurants and bars close-by.

Although my stay was ok, I don't think we'll book here again. There is nothing extraordinary about this place.

Terrific hotel! Very clean and modern. Stayed in a studio suite which was very spacious. Large desk area, great tv and full kitchen. Very convenient for our family. Convenient location close midtown tunnel which made it easier when driving into city. Quiet neighborhood but easy to get to all attractions.  Very friendly staff. Would have given 5 stars except wifi is not free and a five star hotel would have to be really overtop. Would definitely recommend and return

The Affinia Dumont  on 34th
street in NYC  was so disappointing this time. We have stayed there at least 10 times in the past,  When the cab pulled up ,there was no one to greet us and help with the bags.   I had to go in and ask for a porter while my husband waited on the curb with the our luggage.   When we got to the room, it looked shabby at best.  Worn paint and wallpaper. Small bathroom for a suite with a separate living room.  All the furnishings looked tired.  The vanity mirror lacked a light, a doorknob fell off the closet door, the bathtub paint job was peeling off and the beds were so uncomfortable that we barely got any sleep during  our two day stay.  Those mattresses were at best,  terrible .  No cushioning as in the past.   We felt the springs . No bathrobes were available either.  They used to have them waiting in the closet.  Towels looked stiff and elderly.  

It used to be such a fun, clean boutique hotel.  This stay was just sub standard.

I really enjoyed my stay here. Outstanding customer service from the staff. The doormen were awesome and very knowledgeable as well as the front desk staff.
The room was on the smaller size, but really who goes to New York to spend their stay in their room?
The hotel was on top of the cleaning service. We were still in our room at 11, but the front desk called us to inform us that cleaning service would be available till 3.
Great location. The hotel is in the middle of pretty much everything.
It's surrounded by bars, markets, restaurants and tourist attractions such as the Empire State Building aren't too far off.
I would definitely stay here again!

I rely heavily on Yelp reviews whenever I plan a trip, and one of the fundamental points I took away from this last weekend is that there's a huge disconnect between a four-star New York City hotel and a hotel that is located in New York City and just happens to average four stars on Yelp.  No one in their right mind would confuse the Affinia Dumont with the Peninsula, but my kids definitely felt like they were staying in pampered luxury on their first trip to the city.

The cons:

-As other reviewers noted, the lobby area is kind of narrow and "intimate".  We didn't come to NYC to sit in the hotel but if you enjoy loitering , people-watching, or you have a need to conduct business meetings somewhere, this would be a challenge.

-There were some presents left in our room from the last guests, including a pair of somebody's old socks under the desk and an open, leftover bag of Wafa crackers in one of the kitchen cabinets.   Even though we mentioned the crackers to the front desk staff, the message obviously didn't get to the housekeeping team since they were still there when we checked out.  Enjoy, next guests!

-As other reviewers noted, the furniture in our room was kind of old and worn.  This was actually a plus for our family since it made it impossible to tell what my kids might have damaged, but I can appreciate how others might have viewed the decor.  Also, if you're going to market yourself as a "family-friendly" hotel, do everyone a favor and put the double mini-bars in a more inconspicuous location, okay?  I'd still describe the décor as stylish, since it was obvious that someone had made a nice effort along these lines.

The pros:

-Awesome price for a great location on the corner of 34th and Lex, pretty much accessible to everything you could want within minutes.  Restaurants, grocery stores and pharmacies within stumbling distance.  

-Great views of the Chrysler building from the skyline suites, and the two-room floorplan worked perfectly for us.  This was actually the biggest NYC room I've ever stayed in, and the separate living room meant that we didn't have to drink in the bathroom once the kids were in bed.  A full-size refrigerator was included in the kitchenette along with a microwave, coffeemaker, utensils and plates for four.

-The lobby staff exceeded any reasonable expectations for being tolerant of my kids, and for some strange reason we experienced much better customer service than I ever experience when I travel to NYC alone on business.   By the end of the long weekend, my kids were on a first-name basis with a lot of the hotel's crew.  As an added bonus, they even stored our bags for us after checkout so we could sightsee until it was time to head for the airport.

The verdict:

It seems like there must be at least a hundred thousand people living in New York City, so you've got to realize that the world doesn't always revolve around you.  With that in mind, the Affinia Dumont seems to be a workable compromise for both family travel and grown-ups flying solo.  And I'll tell you what, let's make a deal---  if you people do your best to ignore how my kids are bouncing off the lobby walls while we're waiting for the footman to flag us a taxi in the rain, we'll let you have the place all to yourselves during the happy hour wine parties.

My family has been staying at the Affinia Dumont for years. In the past, we experienced great service. Someone would meet us at the curb to help with our luggage, the staff was friendly, and the one-bedroom suites we booked every year were gorgeous.

This year, not so much. After we struggled to get our bags into the lobby, we waited five minutes for the two staff members at the front desk to finish with their current customers. Then we waited another ten minutes between giving the staff member our information and actually being checked in, as he took a phone call and then disappeared with no explanation.

Finally, we were sent to a room. As we reached it, a woman came out, apparently surprised to see anyone coming to occupy the room. She informed us that the air conditioning had been broken, so engineering would be coming to take a look. It was 80 degrees outside, and my father is obese. No air conditioning is bad. We entered the room and found that not only was it stifling, but it was a (tiny) single room, rather than the suite we had reserved. We called the front desk and were placed on hold. After ten minutes on hold, my mother went down to the front desk in person. When someone finally returned to the phone, she was down there. After another several minutes, we were sent to another room. The computer apparently said "studio" while our confirmation read "1-bedroom suite." We received no apology.

Terrible. I left my phone charger in the room right after I checked out. And they didn't let me get it. They lost it and never kept me updated even though I left my number at the front desk and went back on three separate occasions to check!!!

They own me $26. So inconsiderate.

We stayed here for 4 nights and it was a wonderful stay! This hotel offers a kitchen which is a perk for families traveling with young children.  We never actually used the kitchen but we did utilize the fridge! Let it be known that the rooms are very big! We stayed in the double suite and compared to other hotels in the area it is twice the size sq ft. wise.  

Location: 2 blocks from the subway and easy to grab a taxi at the corner of lex. It was also walking distance to Penn Station (long avenues) and Macys/Rock.

Cleanliness: The rooms were REALLY Clean.  The staff also supplied extra blankets as it was snowing!

Staff: Friendly! Accommodating! We landed at 7 AM after a red eye and I called on the way to the hotel and they held a room for us for early check in and accommodated with late check out! They also stored our bags and offer discount tickets to local shows.

Great alternative in NY!

We really enjoyed our stay here!  It is a convenient location and the hotel staff is really nice!  Rooms are very large by new York standards and the beds were super comfy!  Also,  there is a full kitchen in each room!  We had a room on the 18th floor and the view was pretty good.  Very quiet at night.  Also they have free wine from 5-6 each night!  For the price (reasonable for NYC) we would definitely stay again!  Highly recommended!

Spacious rooms, good views & wonderful staff. I enjoyed my first stay at Affinia Dumont so much that it was my immediate choice when I brought my family to the city several months later. The full kitchens are a great convenience. Request a high floor to get the best view; see the photos people have posted for examples.

Stayed for 3 nights with the BF and had a great experience here. The junior suite was furnished nicely and was definitely spacious enough for 2. There's free wifi, a gym, and you can also get free wine at their happy hour from 5-6pm every day! The location is great - right next to a ton of restaurants and less than a 5 min walk to the subway. They also held our bags for us after checkout since we had a late bus. Nothing to complain about here!

I stay here once a month for business-related travel. Though I work nearby, it is conveniently located to everything most tourists would also enjoy....shopping and lots of variety in cuisine.

The staff here have always been extremely courteous; my room always immaculate and quiet (for those who work late into the night); and the kitchen is perfect for those who have extended stays or like to cook. I request a blender sometimes for my morning protein shakes, and it has always been provided, which I appreciate. I love their fitness room too. And happy hour :)

I was also pleasantly surprised with a complimentary upgrade to a junior suite during my most recent stay. My previous rooms have always provided a beautiful view of the city...but THIS suite's view was just spectacular! Highly recommended to everyone who enjoys city scenery.

Already looking forward to next month's stay. Thanks Affinia!

Definitely among the top best Hotels I've stayed at.

Service is excellent.  The rooms are very clean and taken care of.  The Staff are very professional and will try to help you with anything they can.  It was extremely easy to get to by FDR drive and there is plenty to do within walking distance of the area.  This was the simplest, everything you need, kind of hotel without sacrificing class.  For the price I paid, I was given a mini apartment complete with two queen size beds, executive desk and a full kitchen.  

On an added note, I actually left an expensive item behind after check out and hours later, housekeeping actually held it for me.  I was beyond shocked.  It was an act of God and someone's generous mercy that they put it aside for me, so they deserve credit.

I would come back in a heart beat and I'm impressed that my best friend even found this gem!
