Last week my daughter and I were invited to the ultimate play date at the Affinia 50 Hotel. I wouldn’t be lying if I told you that it was one of my daughter’s favorite play dates ever. She had a big smile on her face when she saw what this hotel has to offer.
We were there to check out their American Girl Family Package. It makes sense since they’re located so close to the American Girl Doll store just a few blocks away. They’ve incorporated a trip to NYC into the American Girl Doll line in a very creative way.
We took a complimentary tour to check out the package. Upon entrance to the Junior suite included, we encountered a complimentary American Girl gift bag which includes an exclusive American Girl doll-sized travel bed, pillow and blanket for a doll that the guest receives upon entrance. There were two dolls laid out on a bed in their travel beds (pictured on the left). It was pretty darn cute, and my daughter’s eyes lit up, especially when the hotel manager offered her the chocolate (“sweet treat”) set up on the beds. The package also includes continental breakfast for two children served in the Club Room, a complimentary viewing of American Girl movies in the Club Room, as well as complimentary milk and cookies.
Guests can also choose from other amenities like cribs, dinner reservations, kid-friendly snacks and admission tickets to local attractions. They can take advantage of the 20% discount offered by the Children’s Museum Museum of Manhattan to Affinia 50 guests.
The Club Room is terrific. My daughter played complimentary Wii. There are board games, and I had a glass of wine. It was full of guests happily taking a break from their busy days in Manhattan.
Affinia 50 is centrally located in midtown at 155 E. 50 Street, close to many of New York City’s most famous attractions: Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Central Park and much more.
In addition to the Affinia 50, the chain includes conveniently located hotels around Manhattan plus hotel in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
