      Historical Traveler Reviews Affinia 50 New York City

      Perfect for families


      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


      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


      * 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


      * rooms require renovation and a new furniture

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

      Great Value for Money


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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


      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!



      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.

I think the best tasting we had was a creamy, cheesy rice ball or maybe hot chocolate chip cookie. The tour lasts a couple of hours and includes one seated tasting where you can buy drinks.

      ... as amazing as the night. We got dressed and headed down for our free breakfast in the hotel restaurant, which is open to the public too. We had tea/coffee/orange juice, fruit and yoghurt, boiled egg, muffin and croissant. Plenty to fill us up until later in the day. We had written a few things down which we would plan on doing today, first on the list was to go up to the top of the Empire State, whilst it was very close by. The weather was sunny but nowhere near as humid ...

I ask her in a nonchalantly if she will be spending long in NYC. Spotting a discerning and cultured traveller she chats away enthusiastically as I helpfully pass over the debris from "bearded wonder" who by this time has had a sudden and worrying deodorant failure.

Shared a turkey panini which was nice and a frappacino, or was it called a Frappachelli? But we DID have lunch at Trump Tower. Even used the toilet there! This marble finish everywhere, and gold coloured metal hand railings etc etc. What else? A Lego shop, horses and carriages ...
