"Midtown's Best Stay" Manhattan NYC, an Affinia hotel Tip by John_Hale

Manhattan NYC, an Affinia hotel, New York City: 4,112 reviews and 1 photos

The Southgate Tower Hotel is a renovated 1929 facility located just outside the east entrance of Madison Square Garden/Penn Station. The hotel specializes in 1-room (studio suite) & 2-room (1-bedroom suite) accomodations that all include a kitchen. The rooms are spacious, & include a couch, dining table, TV w/Internet access, & 2 closets. The only tight quarters are the clean, remodelled, but 1920s-sized bathrooms. The rooms, hotel lobby, & facilities are well kept & clean. Staff are friendly & helpful; i.e., our maid cleaned up our coffee maker after we had left coffee in it one day.

Unique Qualities: Any rooms on the higher floors of this 28-story hotel facing the Empire State & Chrysler buildings have a good view, being just a few blocks away. However, a window in the stairwell on the 28th floor affords any guest a tremendous view of both these classics.

Our price for a studio suite ($119/night plus taxes) through an online travel service was outstanding for the Manhattan location and the quality of the room.
