Conveniently located adjacent to Penn Station and Madison Square Garden, Affinia Manhattan, a Denihan Hospitality Group property, recently embarked on a $24 million redesign transforming this historic, pre-war property into a stylish and sophisticated retreat to fit the comfort and needs of today’s modern traveler.
One unique aspect of staying at the Affinia Manhattan is the Comfort Hour.
What is the comfort hour? Every evening guests are invited to test ’Comfort Cart’ items which includes: six choice Dream Pillow Menu, Experience Kits, acoustic Ibanez guitar, yoga mats, golf putters, Xbox Kinect, Wii and more. The items on the ‘Comfort Cart’ are rated by guests and top rated amenities will eventually be rolled out across the brand. Guests are also treated to Affinia Manhattan’s signature “blondies”.
Guests to Affinia Manhattan can also take advantage of some of the hotels information and amenities kits that help guests discover and enjoy popular urban spaces. Experience kits include:
- Walking Tour Kit: An iPod Shuffle or Nano loaded with Affinia Walking Tour and workout playlists; City Walks deck of cards; city guidebook featuring popular walking tours; StreetWise city map; pedometer; and towel.
- StayFit Kit: Yoga mat; stretching blocks; yoga, Pilates, and boot camp DVDs; workout bands; wrist/ankle weights; and StreetWise city map.
- BYOB Kit: Neoprene wine carrier with wine key; BYOB guidebook; Little Black Book of Wine; and picnic blanket.
- Hangover Kit – Advil; eye mask; and a bottle of water.
Guests can also take advantage of the Metro
Concierge in the hotel lobby to plan their days
in the city, book in-room spa treatments, tour
the city on a helicopter ride, or purchase
hard-to-get theater tickets. In addition, the popular onsite restaurant and bar, Niles New York City,
is open late for sophisticated cuisine and the
occasional celebrity sighting.
