Affinia 50 Hotel Review: This hotel offers the chance to hide away from Midtown's madness without running too far from the action. It's a peaceful respite right in the thick of office buildings aplenty and just a short walk from Rockefeller Center and other crowded tourist spots. Affinia 50 goes several steps beyond typical executive digs, and upscale comfort trends abound. The hotel even offers its own brand of bed with, natch, triple-sheeted down comforters and several pillow options. Accommodations include standard guest rooms, studios and multi-room suites for up to six. Top floor rooms come with city views, and many have private terraces. The overall style is a tasteful blend of contemporary chic and East Coast country club. All rooms include access to The Club Room, with complimentary Wi-Fi, a fireplace, weekly wine receptions and other meet-your-hotel-neighbor events. Business amenities include Wi-Fi, secretarial services and meeting areas. As a nice personal touch, the hotel lends guests "Experience Kits" that include goodies like yoga mats, DVDs and iPods loaded with a walking tour and workout playlists.
