The sprawling, 618-room, 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 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, and some have large, if sparse, terraces with great views down 7th Avenue. The pristine gym is equipped with more than a dozen machines, plus free weights, and there's even a coin-op laundry room.

A great hotel right in the center of everything. Across the road from Madison Square Garden so it can get a little hectic but definitely gives you your hit of the hustle and bustle. I was upgraded to a suite which was a really good size, plenty of space in the living area but could have had a slightly bigger bathroom as was a little cramped in comparison to the rest of the space. All round good option for a short stay in the city and not too pricey - check out as they seem to have good offers on it.
