The former Gardens NYC has been reborn as the Gardens Suites Hotel, by Affinia, an all-suite property on New York’s Upper East Side that features a multimillion-dollar renovation by architect and designer Amanda Sullivan. (In conjunction with this move, the Affinia Hotel Collection has been renamed Affinia Hotels & Suites.

Sullivan, who also created the interior finishes and custom furniture for the lobby of The James New York-SoHo, says “by playing with texture and light a calming palette is created to reference natural elements as if you are walking through a wooded path. This serene feeling allows the guest to relax and rejuvenate.”

The hotel now offers 132 suites with apartment-style layouts, each featuring full kitchens, powered recliners and sleeper sofas. Room configurations include:

80 Junior suites (425 sq. ft.)
45 One-bedroom suites (625 sq. ft.)
3 Two-bedroom suites (1200 sq. ft.)
4 Penthouses (875 sq. ft. with patio (275-365 sq. ft.))

Carl Cohen, chief commercial officer of Denihan Hospitality, parent company of Affinia Hotels & Suites, adds, “Every hotel room within the Affinia brand is larger than a typical New York apartment. But when we look at the competition, Gardens Suites is in a league of its own, being an all-suite hotel that truly defines ‘expansive’. It was a strategic decision to renovate the rooms to offer an even more open layout to reflect a chic, city-smart space where guests can balance business with leisure or recovery.”
