    Historical Traveler Reviews Affinia 50 New York City

    Perfect for families

    from

    We spent 3 nights at Plaza 50 with two teenage sons - space is important to us. It was a very spacious suite with a small kitchen and ample dining area. It was attractive and clean. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. If you love a beautiful lobby, you won't find it here, but you can mosey up the block to the Waldorf and get your lobby fix there! The New York Luncheonette is steps away and is a clean and fast place to grab a meal - they serve all 3. Walking distance to Grand Central, Rockefeller Center, St Patrick's Cathedral is very close by.

    This hotel is in a great neighborhood and is a very good value. We would stay again.

    OK hotel for a weekend stay

    from

    We spent here 3 nights in September 2003.OK hotel if you plan to stay

    with your family over the weekend, but don't expect anything special

    Pros:

    * very good location (walking distance to central park, 5th Ave, Waldorf Astoria where the double decker bus stops is just 5 min walking distance from here, great deli around the corner)

    * friendly, helpful staff

    * suites with kitchen and spacious living room, for those planning to stay with kids

    Cons:

    * rooms require renovation and a new furniture

    * charges for local calls (min $1 per call...)

    Great Value for Money

    from

    We found the staff very helpful and the room was clean and very pleasant. The bed made a big impression. It was centrally located for all sightseeing especially the shopping experience. We would heartly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New York. Great Value for Money

    Hated it

    from

    This was the most horrible experience I have ever had at a hotel! The walls had holes in them, the light in the bathroom flickered- we had a pleasant view of a brick wall, the staff was rude, basically anything that could've been unpleasant was. The concierge was at best ok and the rest of the staff looked at you with blank stares. Dont stay here! Stay at a reputable hotel with a name- this place just sucked. They had apparently been remodeling, which is another excuse for "we will have planks on the floors, and tape covering wires in your room". Bottom line - dont go there. The truth is in the information you can find out about this hotel, which is very little to none. You wont see any pics of the rooms other than the purplish "suite". Also the picture of the front desk is taken from a vantage point that makes it look large and nice, it is small and dingy in reality. Sorry, if I ruined the excited feeling you may have had but, you will thank me later!

    Great Staff and Hotel

    from

    We arrived at the Plaza Fifty in the middle of the Great Blackout. Even without power the hotel had a reservation list and still knew we were to arrive. The staff was excellent and even in the face of adversity, they were professional and always had a smile on their face. I will definately stay there again.

    Great place to stay

    from

    The Plaza Fifty was an excellent place to stay, the rooms are extremely spacious, with their own kitchen facilities which was extremely handy since there was a deli just around the corner. The rooms are kept very clean and I have no hesitaion on returning there to stay. All the sights are within walking distance maybe a lttle further out than some more expensive hotels but you come across your first sight within a ten minute walk. All in all an excellent place to stay.

    Wonderful place to stay

    from

    We stayed 3 nights at the Plaza Fifty and couldn't have been happier with our choice of hotels. The staff was so friendly and helpful and upgraded us to a superior suite at no additional charge. We couldn't have asked for a nicer staff. The room was huge with a dining room, kitchen, large bedroom and a private balcony. Close walking distance to many popular city destinations and excellent restaurants. Staying at the Plaza Fifty really topped off a truly excellent vacation.

    Great Value, Pleasantly Surprised

    from

    I was really impressed! I stayed for six nights in June and can't say enough good things about Plaza Fifty. Four women need their space and we had it. The room was a good size, always clean and quiet. The small kitchen was perfect for toasting a bagel or heating some leftovers. The location was great for bus or subway and walking distance to Rockefeller Center. The value was great for 2 queen beds and the space we needed. I will stay again.

    Plaza Fifty was nice and clean

    from

    We stayed at the Plaza Fifty in July 2003. The hotel staff was very nice and let us check in 3 hours early. The room was very clean and a nice size. There was a microwave, coffee pot, and fridge in the room. I would definitely stay here again!

    Superb

    from

    Have just returned from a long weekend in New York, staying at the Plaza Fifty. It is a fantastic* hotel. Rooms are large and absolutely spotless and most have full kitchens which is amazingly useful (there is a wonderful deli, Azure, just around the corner open 24 hours - watch yourself or you'll spend a fortune). All staff were very friendly and helpful without being false, and check in/out was handled quickly and painlessly. I have always stayed a little further uptown on previous trips, so I was somewhat dubious of the location of the Plaza Fifty (I thought it may be a little too far down and a little too far over), but I was pleasantly surprised. The Waldorf is two blocks away, if thats any indication. Anyway, I could go on for pages about this place but I'll hold back and just say that the Plaza Fifty is very spacious, very clean, very friendly and very very good value.

    ... and we have well and truly worn ourselves out in the process. I love New York but I don't think I would want to live here, the constant crowds and lining up for everything would wear thin after a while. It is no small wonder that New Yorkers yell at people to get out of the way or wait their turn since this is their lot every day of their lives. You would get impatient pretty quickly. Tomorrow we head to LA. I can't believe our month-long sojourn is almost over- where did all that time ...

    ... half an hours sleep for the trip. Arrived in LA with I think about two hours in between flights, so we waited in the Delta Sky Club. The flight from LA to NY was just on five hours. Our bags popped out first the other end and all was good. We arrived around 10.30pm on the Tuesday night and got in a cab to head to the East Village - East 8th Street. Nice apartment, quite spacious I'm guessing by NY standards. Slept until 12.30 pm Wednesday which was ...

    New York, you have stolen our hearts and you can be sure that we will be back! For now, we're buddying up with Obama, spending our nights sipping whiskey with the President in the White House.

    Lots of love, J&A xx

    ... is literally right at our door step. Mim's memory turns out is subject to 'overwhelmed', so we relied on me and I hadn't had coffee. Fail. Wait found it. Starbucks! Ok so reset and found Broadway and the shops.
    Ate at a deli and then cracked the travel card open. It's hot outside and got really busy by noon.
    Top shop, uniqlo, H & M.
    We are taking it easy in our room to recoup before heading out to find our night out outfits!

    That rest lasted ...

    ... and we met a nice fellow on the train who used to be in the Navy and had docked in Fremantle many years ago.

    We walked back to the hotel and got a bite to eat. The classic New York Hotdog and Pizza was lunch for us. We bought a 4 day pass on a hop on hop off bus and booked in a night tour for Brooklyn.

    At 4:30pm we excitedly left for Hard Rock Cafe to meet up with Uncle Den, Deelee, Mase & Alex. We were told there was an hour wait for ...
