Cheryl from Green Bay, WI US rated Affinia Dumont 10 out of 10 on October 22, 2010
"Staff were courteous and friendly. My family has stayed in many hotels around the world and we enjoyed the down to earth yet professional style of the staff. We had a corner room with two large windows providing nice views of the city. Would definitely stay here again. Made our trip to NYC a wonderful memory."
Linda from Gilbertville, MA US rated Affinia Dumont 10 out of 10 on February 17, 2010
"Good location with easy access. Nice one bedroom suite but a bit noisy. Maybe because it was on the 4th floor. The suite I've stayed need a bit of maintenance like replacing the window shades. This is the second time my family and I stay there. Overall, enjoyed the stay during the week-end."
