This was a hotel where I stayed during my many visits to New York City. The rooms and suites are large and the location is very good. However, things have changed. Rooms are no longer as clean and although the old timers in the staff continue to be polite, I was practically insulted by a lady at the front desk....

Had a night here in December and quite liked the place. Bigger room than the average NYC hotel room. Nice staff, got in early despite not being the one to have booked the room, though arrangements were made. I'd definitely come back here. Good neighborhood with decent transportation options.

I was disappointed to read your customer service experience was anything less than exceptional. Please reach out to me directly at bgehlich@affinia.com, so I can review your reservation more in detail, as this type of service is definitely not the norm of the Fifty NYC.

Affinia should be ashamed of this property as our 5-night stay was a disaster from the start. First, arrived after a long trans-Atlantic flight to be told the WiFi was down with no estimate for when it would be working. Next, this restaurant-free hotel has a guest lounge, locked until 7 am just in case there's a mass rush for...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.

“There is a facilities fee of $25 per room per night, this is in addition to your room rate and taxes so budget for this cost and do take advantage of the 'facilities', in particular use the $10 per room per day 'Cupboard' allowance to purchase snacks etc from the lobby and if you are in the hotel between 5 and 6pm take advantage of the free wine during 'Social Sips' hour on Level 2. Wi Fi is free throughout the hotel.”
