Our Favorite Things: Gardens NYC, New York

New York City in Spring at Gardens NYC

Three words describe Gardens NYC best: tranquil, thoughtful and private – just right for a little alone time with just your thoughts, your partner, friends or family. The Gardens’ rooms are spacious, easily accommodating larger groups or spreading out to make yourself at home. Ideal for spring and summer stays, especially for long-term guests, the Gardens NYC’s patio and terrace suites are not to be missed.

Four things I love about The Gardens NYC 

  1. The exclusive Upper East Side location
  2. The unique outdoor patio and terrace accommodations are unlike other hotel rooms in NYC
  3. Kitchens in all suites, plus Fresh Direct grocery service
  4. Experience kits, and of course the legendary Affinia beds

Your own uptown address

Movin’ on up! Gardens NYC is discreetly located in Manhattan’s Upper East Side on an intimate, tree-lined street. World-class shopping and New York City’s famed museums surround the hotel, which adds convenience and charm to its locale. Away from midtown, yet close enough to easily get anywhere, guests find it’s the perfect spot for a tranquil retreat.

Outdoor patios and terraces are a unique urban oasisMar15-Blog-GardenNYC-1

Or maybe escape is a better word? The Gardens NYC features a limited number of private patio suites. These specialty rooms provide up to 600 sq. feet of unique outdoor space, meticulously furnished with couches, lounge chairs and patio tables. Guests can rest and relax in their own urban oasis. An adjacent garden and water feature, along with seasonal patio plantings induce a mental state of blissful relaxation.

Tucked away on a residential street, Gardens NYC also features a number of rooms with outdoor terraces. The premier and renovated penthouse suites, feature the most expansive private terraces, which are a rarity in Manhattan, but especially for a hotel.

No restaurant on site, but it’s not needed since there are restaurants aplenty within walking distance and all suites at Gardens NYC include a kitchen perfectly equipped with refrigerator, toaster, microwave, utensils and coffee maker with complimentary coffee. Penthouse suites are appointed with Caesarstone countertops and stainless steel GE Profile appliances. The Gardens teams up with Fresh Direct to provide grocery delivery service to guests, especially attractive to those who like preparing their own meals. Place your order and your fridge and pantry will be stocked for you. Grocery deliveries can be scheduled in advance or anytime during a stay, and come with snacks like KIND® bars, Pirate Booty®, hummus and pretzel chips, plus many include four-minute meals and microwavable items as well. One of the best burger joints, Jackson Hole, is right across the street too!

Experience Kits and the experience of sleeping on an Affinia bedMar15-Blog-GardenNYC-2

Three signature Experience Kits help guests make the most of their stays. The StayFit Kit incudes a yoga mat, weights, workout bands and more. BYOB Kits have a neoprene wine carrier, picnic blanket, BYOB guide to local restaurants and more. The Walking Tour Kit features a pre-loaded iPod Nano or Shuffle, city walking guide, pedometer and more.

Have an “experience” and fall into an Affinia bed for a restful night’s sleep. Affinia beds have Sealy Posturepedic Plush Sleep Systems made with a higher density foam, a more supportive design and improved quality. Affinia beds are legendary for a reason.
