On a business trip earlier this summer, I was able to drop in for a quick stay at the Affinia Manhattan. Located in midtown, The Affinia Manhattan is a beautiful New York City luxury boutique hotel with old-world charm across the street from Penn Station, Madison Square Garden and Broadway. With 616 guest rooms recently redesigned by the Rockwell Group, including many suites with kitchens and 1 and 2 bedrooms, the Affinia Manhattan is a fun and hip choice for families, business travelers and girlfriends heading to New York for some fun.
Why we like this midtown New York City luxury boutique hotel: I love the whimsical and modern decor and the beautiful historic lobby (of course with green and orange accents) When you check in, you can choose from their Six-Choice Pillow Menu. The hotel is also within walking distance to Times Square, Madison Square Garden and Rockefeller Center. Through My Affinia, families can customize their stay with amenities such as complimentary Walking Tour Kit (featuring iPod pre-loaded walking tours, maps and guidebooks to explore each city), and for a nominal fee: rubber duckies, cupcakes and more. Families can also take advantage of exclusive discounts to city attractions including the Children’s Museum of Manhattan and Sports Center at Chelsea Piers.
Rates start at $240 per night for a studio room. To check rates for your dates, visit Affinia Manhattan reservations. Affinia also has several other family friendly boutique hotels across the country.
The Affinia My Family getaway package includes:
- Affinia Hotels backpack stocked with a Frommer’s guide book for kids (Chicago, NYC & DC versions), a deck of 52 city adventure cards, a kid’s digital camera and pouch to capture great family moments, a scrapbook with city stickers to remember the memories.
- Access to a “Fun-For-Family” chest including board games, family DVD’s, arts and crafts kits and books to use during your stay.
