Where

The third of Affinia’s residential-style guest room and suite properties, the Gardens is located on the Upper East Side just above the Queensboro/59th St. Bridge and in the heart of the action during the NYC Marathon. After crossing the bridge, more than 50,000 runners will turn north and run several miles along 1st Avenue, just a block and a half from this hotel. In a usually quieter, residential area of Manhattan, the neighborhood will be just that, except for race day when hundreds of thousands of race spectators will line both sides of 1st Avenue from 60th St. northward. This is an ideal hotel location for friends and family to cheer you on when you pass by.

Gardens offers all-suite accommodations—junior, one and two-bedroom, all with full kitchens and even a dining area. And this hotel, like the other Affinia properties, is kid and pet-friendly. The surrounding neighborhood is jammed with scores of restaurants and local shops to enjoy during your stay. Close to Bloomingdale’s, Central Park, Fifth Avenue, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the exhilarating Roosevelt Island Tramway that offers spectacular views of the city.

    A Hotel in the Heart of the Marathon Action

    5/ 5

    Beautiful hotel on the Upper East at 64th, which isn’t too far, but on the East Side, so opposite where you end. However, they are great because they are suites, so you get the kitchen and living room, which comes in handy if you are super particular about what you eat and need to cook.
