Historical Traveller Reviews of Affinia Dumont Hotel

Lived up to billing...

from A TripAdvisor Member
We spent three days at the Affinia Dumont and we found the hotel lived up to all the accolades we found on this site...the rooms were comfortable and clean...noise from the street only could be heard faintly during the busy part of the day...staff members were very helpful and accommodating...we will visit the Affinia Dumont again!

great fun

from A TripAdvisor Member
this hotel was great, just got back stayed on the 37th floor which had an awesome view of the city. Staff nice and helpful. Room was huge for NYC standards I think. Great location, pleanty of restaurants and can walk to Times Square quicky. Highly Suggest going there.

Fantastic

from A TripAdvisor Member
I just returned from NYC yesterday after my first stay at the Affinia Dumont, and the entire experience was fantastic! The lobby was welcoming and calming (fruit and juice for guests); the view from the room was spectacular; the suites were contemporary and comfortable; the fitness room actually looked like one (lots of hotels have a few machines in varying working conditions but NOT here: weight machines; free weights; mats; medicine balls; 2-3 stability balls; 3 treadmills; 3 stairclimbers; 3 bikes--treadmills had their own monitors with complimentary headphones) and I simply cannot compliment the hotel's staff enough! Gina, Glen and Alex in particular are outstanding--very personable AND professional. This hotel really suited my needs because I was visiting the city with my parents and two young nieces. We stayed in a one-BR suite. I requested two full-sized beds in the bedroom (which they said were available) but the hotel called me a few days before, saying they only had king-sized beds available. I asked for a roll-away bed and they accommodated me without extra charge (usually a $20/night fee). My parents slept in the BR; my nieces on the roll-away bed; and I slept on the sofa/pull-out bed. And having a kitchen was a lifesaver! I've visited lots of hotels for both work and leisure, but this was far away the best hotel experience I've ever had. When visiting the city, we usually stay at another hotel--but not any longer! The Affinia Dumont will be our new "home" when we visit the city.

Wow...phenomenal hotel!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is the best that I have ever stayed in...and I am a frequent business traveler. I did at least two weeks of research before booking a room at the Affinia Dumont. I really wanted to find a place that would be contemporary, spacious, a great value and a good location. I have very expectations, but since this was my first time, I told myself to not such high expectations.

Boy, was I in for a surprise!! The staff was exceptional, the room was amazing and the location of the hotel was outstanding. One of the biggest things that I experienced was a great feeling of comfort. I felt like the hotel was my second home and I have never experienced this before in any other hotel.

My husband who is incredibly picky and has a great eye for detail was floored by how much better the executive desk and chair was compared to at home and he especially appreciated the use of lights, extra plugs and dimmer switches throughout the room. The attention to detail in the room's layout and decor was very apparent.

Anyways, if you are reading this, stop researching and book a room at this fine hotel...you will not be disappointed!!

Nice, but not as nice as expected

from zamom
After reading the reviews here on tripadvisor, I cancelled the reservation I had at another hotel and reserved here. I was travelling on business, but with my family (husband and two small kids).

I had a few problems. I had requested early check-in so that I could dress and prepare for a business meeting, but this request was not honored. When I asked about internet cables, maps of NYC, and coupons to the Empire State Building, the staff claimed to be out of all of these. They did not offer to accommodate me in any other way. Also, the door to the bathroom was broken and could not close, a problem because we were four people in the room. The bedspread on the bed was stained on the side closest to the bed. The staff did not seem to be knowledgeable about things to do with kids in New York (didn't know where the zoo was, couldn't recommend restaurants, etc.). The front desk, while very personable, was not very efficient. While my small kids and I waited in line for assistance, one staff member spent at least 15 minutes helping a young guest choose a club to go out to that night. Finally, when I called the hotel the week before my stay and asked for concierge help with getting a theater ticket, she said she would do so, but never ended up calling me back.

The plusses: The room was spacious and had a wonderful view. The staff was very friendly to my children. The location of the hotel was terrific (near Macy's, lots of shopping, etc.). There was a really good Chinese restaurant right around the corner from the hotel -- go left out of hotel, turn left on Lexington, it's on the left. However, I usually stay at the Casablanca, and I'll probably go back there.

Great place overall

from ceilidancer5
Loved the Affinia Dumont Suites. Desk staff and doormen very friendly and helpful. Rooms were terrific, spacious (NY spacious) and clean. It's in a great location in Manhatten. Easy access to lower Manhatten or Midtown. Our only issue was, we had booked non-smoking and upon arrival there were no more non-smoking available. We were assured the rooms were freshened however, they still wreaked of cigarette smoke, despite the best efforts of housekeeping. I'd definitely stay at this hotel again if I were guaranteed a non-smoking room.
No offense but the no smoking restaurant laws should be extended to hotels!
Definitely worth a try!

ve heard about Affinia Dumont.

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Affinia Dumont must be NYC's best value. The accommodations and perks are impressive for the money paid, especially when I read horrible reviews of much more expensive hotels. I recently returned from a three-night stay and can't say enough good things about the Dumont.

My husband and I got a one-bedroom suite. The room was stylish, cozy and very clean. We had great views of the city from both the living area and bedroom. The bedroom had built-in storage with plenty of room for clothes and other belongings. We could control the temperture separately for the bedroom and living area. We even had our own remote-controlled stereo.

The Thai restaurant next door was great and had very reasonable prices. The Barking Dog, which is in the same building as the Dumont and provides room service, was also good and had a quaint courtyard. (The BD did seem a little pricey to me for what you got, but was probably average for NYC.)

With a subway stop a block up, a corner grocery and drugstore, and several restaurants nearby, it felt like our own private neighborhood in the big city.

The elevators were always available and very efficient. Also, the staff were extremely courteous and professional.

One note: The locals and cab drivers seem to know the place as the Dumont Plaza, which I assume is a former name. This can cause some confusion when taking a cab, so keep that in mind.

t Wait to Get Back!

from A TripAdvisor Member
We JUST got back from the Affinia Dumont, and all I can say is "WOW"! Checking in was easy, the people were unbelievably friendly, courteous, and helpful, and the room was great! We got in early, and Gina at the front desk told us if we could check in later she'd get us a room up high. We checked our luggage in, and took off to do some touring! When we came back, she was true to her word. We were on the highest floor, the 37th, with an unbelievable view of the Chrysler Building! We stayed in the studio suite, with the king sized bed. It was great!! The bathroom had all of the amenities and more, and the room was spacious with a desk area, and 2 comfortable extra chairs!
We will DEFINATELY be staying here again!

wonderful hotel!!

from A TripAdvisor Member
My sister and I stayed at the Affinia and enjoyed our stay! I would stay there anytime I was in New York. The rooms were very nice and very clean. The staff were friendly and the hotel was close to walk to nearby attractions. Had a great time!!!

Spacious, Gracious and Well Located

from BJr970
We just returned from a weekend stay at the Affinia Dumont. Our adjoining 8th floor rooms afforded us over 1,000 square feet of space.
Plush bedding with padded leather headboards. Well-outfitted marble baths were compact, but with a plethora of accessories and conveniences. Toiletries were signature blends from the Affinia Spa on the premises. Rooms feature a fully stocked galley style kitchen. I have never seen so much workable desk space in a hotel before, although the faux black leather-look desktop was cheezy. An comfortable Aeron desk chair was a nice surprise. The modern decor featured many unique lighting opportunities, all with dimmer switches. Large screen TVs (maybe 32 inch?) and a stereo system were on hand, as well as Sony Dream Machine bedside alarm clock and CD players. Materials in the room were in good condition with minimal signs of wear and tear. An on site restaurant, The Barking Dog, supplies the room service, which appeared to be decently priced. A total of only 7 rooms on our floor provided plenty of quiet and privacy for our group of six. Street noises were mild and were of the of police siren variety. Heavy cream draperies and mesh sheers were on the wall to wall windows. The bellstaff, especially Christopher, was great. Christopher was most helpful and friendly. The rate for the two suites was $429. In comparison to what you get in a standard hotel room for $250-$400 a night, it was a good value. Parking for an SUV was $42. We kept our vehicle parked and our luggage checked in until 8 PM on the day we checked out. Upon our return, Christopher swiftly gathered our bags and our SUV was waiting out front for us in no time. Just a few blocks from the Empire State Building and Macy's, and with nice restaurants nearby, the Affinia Dumont is a good choice for a weekend trip or a romantic getaway.

Top Local Tips for New York City

Getting around NYC To see and soak everything up, do a lot of walking if you can. We must have walked 30 odd miles!! The subway is great and easy to use, a green, blue and red line run up and down town only, not across town. We bought a metro card each day from our 3rd day there. For 10 dollars you get 12 rides, which is 2 rides free and we found this the best value. Unlike the UK underground, two or more people can use one metrocard by passing it back at the turnstile. It is not valid for only one day either, so if you have rides left on your card, you can use it again the following day.

Park your car I highly recommend leaving your car garaged and experiencing the taxicab & subway scenes to get around. Taxis tend to be reasonable to nearby destinations (e.g. Theatre District/TimesSquare). Subway is very inexpensive and accessible when you're not in a hurry. ENJOY NYC!~

NBC tour-yes, Red bus-no NBC Studios tour on Friday 3pm- We saw some cast members on the Saturday Night Live set- Keenan, Bill Hader(waved to us!) and the guest star: Ellen Page. We did the red bus tour Grey Line- disappointed. The buses were infrequent, and often would just stop to tell us they were full and to wait for the next one. Plus, some of the tour guides are down right obnoxious, with one guy continuously repeating "Do you understand me?"-Ugh! we had to hop off in Chinatown it was so awful. Another-an old New Yorker lady with a major nasty attitude. Nearby Fagiolini restaurant, it was deLISH. pasta with pesto and garlic dish --omg was it good! The Barking Dog restaurant just so-so, & slow. If you walk out the hotel and turn left, The Empire State Building is a few blocks down, walk out the hotel and turn right, there are some nearby restaurants, shops. Family of 4 ice skating at Rockefeller=$100, but just tell yourself the memories will be priceless. Cab between hotel- LGA $16-18 each way.
