Affinia Manhattan

The sprawling Affinia Manhattan opened as The Governor Clinton Hotel in 1929. The vast lobby retains some of its Jazz Age opulence; original details such as carved bronze elevator doors are juxtaposed with new elements including a dramatic chandelier in the shape of the Manhattan skyline. The white-and-gray guest rooms were recently given a casual, contemporary redesign by the ubiquitous Rockwell Group, with retro Anglepoise reading lamps perched on faux-leather headboards and playful splashes of orange and chartreuse. The hotel offers some novel perks: Select your pillow from a "menu” of six pillow types including buckwheat, Swedish memory foam, and even one that emits soothing sound. The white-tiled bathrooms are conveniently stocked with full-size shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. All the suites have kitchens, making it a good base for an extended stay. The pristine gym is equipped more than a dozen machines, plus free weights, and there's even a coin-op laundry room. Rooms: 618.
