Midtown hotel renovation keeps marching forward

Yet another big old hotel is being renovated...this one more or less in Garment District, the Affinia.

Let me see what I can find on the internet--

UPDATE: We are happy to report that Affinia Manhattan has weathered Hurricane Irene without incident or loss of power, and the storm continues to clear the area.


Manhattan just got more comfy.

According to Travel & Leisure, “A stay at the Affinia Manhattan will really make you feel a part of the city!”

Get comfy in one of our 616 new guest rooms, redesigned for maximum comfort by the world-renowned design firm, Rockwell Group!
Kick back and relax. The comforts of technology await, including flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and wireless Internet. Then choose from our Six-Choice Pillow Menu, and doze off on one of our signature Affinia beds.

Hungry? Studios and suites all have kitchens. Or, pop down to the hotel’s restaurant, Niles New York City Restaurant & Bar, for contemporary American cuisine, stylish d├ęcor and a very lively atmosphere. (Note: When there’s a game at the Garden, there’s a gang at Niles.)

Or walk outside, New York City is at your fingertips. Just steps from Penn Station and most subway lines, it’s easy to explore the city’s most exciting neighborhoods and attractions; Madison Square Garden, the Empire State Building, Fifth Avenue shopping, Chelsea art galleries, Broadway, and Times Square — Affinia Manhattan

And for larger groups, we have more than 9,000 sq. ft of meeting space and great catering options to accommodate any event!
