Affinia Hotel

This big hotel on 7th Avenue is now called the Affinia....wonder what its original name was. Let us see if googling gives any answers...No real luck, just advertising.

There are plenty of hotels in Midtown, but for Madison Square Garden events, this one can’t be beat. The prime location puts you right across the street from the Garden, where you can catch a Knicks or Rangers game, a championship boxing showdown, or a big-name concert. Penn Station, adjacent to the Garden, is a major subway stop and one of the world's busiest rail hubs, placing the city and the entire Eastern Seaboard at your feet. Stroll 3 blocks north to Macy's Herald Square, the world's largest department store, and visit the cellar-level market for gourmet foods, freshly baked goods, and designer chocolates. The incredible views at the top of the Empire State Building are just a 10-minute walk from the Affinia Manhattan, and the bright lights of Broadway beckon about a half-mile away.
The Affinia Manhattan's city-savvy Metro Concierge is happy to assist with theater and game tickets, restaurant reservations, shopping-and-sightseeing info, and tips on navigating the city's subway system (it's easier than you may think!). Just off the lobby, the Niles New York City Restaurant and Bar offers a sleek setting for contemporary cuisine. The bar, open till the wee hours, is especially lively on game nights at the Garden.
