    Historical Traveler Reviews Fifty NYC-An Affina Hotel 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.

We were sitting in the upper bowl - not quite the nosebleed section (I definitely wouldn't have wanted to go higher, but reasonable seats all the same), and only a few came up that high so we didn't really think we had a chance. We both watched this one shirt sail up towards us, but it wasn't until it was right there that Ryan reacted. Ryan put out his left hand but it bounced out and landed in 2 vacant seats in front of us, with people all around. ...

Instead we headed to Broadway for a spot of shopping, post-Christmas sales in full swing and many bargains to be had, absolute craziness! Upon a recommendation from Roberto, our host, we headed to an amazing rooftop bar on Fifth Avenue called 230 with a bird’s eye view of the Empire State Building and New York skyline. It was freezing cold but ...
