Affinia's NYC Hotels Teams With FreshDirect Food Delivery Service
One thing we like about hotels is that they come up with truly smart partnerships, and the latest on the block is Affinia Hotels' collaboration with the popular food delivery service, FreshDirect.
The program originally started at the Affinia Dumont, but the in-room program proved so popular, the brand's other four Manhattan hotels will follow suit by the end of the month.
The reason the joint venture works especially well with the brand is because Affinia hotels have fully-equipped kitchens and many rooms with separate dining areas, furnished outdoor patios and terraces--which make cooking and en-suite dining more affordable than room service, daily eating out, and mini-bar pillaging. Plus, it's a boon for extended-stay guests, which make up a good deal of Affinia's clientele.
Options include the Business Kit and Healthy Kit where guests have their kitchens stocked with fruits and vegetables, Greek yogurt, chips, salsa and cookies. We're especially pleased there will be KIND bars, Pirates Booty, hummus and pretzel crisps. A variety of four-minute meals and microwavable options are also available like curried chicken salad and lemon-dill salmon.
Guests order the kits in advance via Affinia's online e-concierge service during booking, or upon arrival. The service begins at
$50 $75 plus taxes and delivery fees.
