This was my first stay at the Avalon Hotel. It’s a convenient walk from Grand Central. I’ll be honest; this hotel was a lot nicer than I expected it to be. The desk staff and doorman were super friendly and helpful. We even had to store something overnight in their walk-in freezer and they were great about it. They had... More

I recently spent four nights at the Avalon. It's an older building, but the interior has been renovated. It's in a convenient location. The lobby is small, but attractive. They have complimentary coffee in the lobby, which I happily availed myself of. Check in was quick and painless. The staff was professional and courteous. My room, a junior suite, was... More

I arrived at the Avalon Hotel at about 2:45 on Thursday, January 28th. I was told by the female at the front desk that there was an additional $50 security charge per night for my stay(2 night stay). This is not something I was expecting. After somewhat absorbing this unwelcomed surprise, upon swiping my card, it was declined. After making... More

We stayed here for an extended weekend (due to the blizzard). The hotel is older, very clean and has a super responsive staff. It is in a good location. The room was a good size (for a New York hotel).

Usually stay at Kimpton in NYC, but got a great deal on Avalon for three nights. Location of hotel is between 5th Avenue and Madison at 32d St, a block from the 6(Green) subway line. On arrival the staff were friendly and accomodating. Offered an upgrade for less than the normal room rate, which we took. Valet parking was $45/nite.... More

Looking at the reviews on this property my wife and I decided to give it a try. Have to say we had a very nice stay. Room was large (Jr. Suite) for a downtown hotel, clean, and decor was inviting. Front desk was on the ball. Location in Midtown was good. We traveled to NYC to see some shows so... More

Great hotel, great location, great facilities! Perfect to get rid of the January blues following the holidays. Great location at mid town to trains and tourist attractions. Penn station short walk away for connection to JFK.

I have stayed in many hotels in New York, but the Avalon Hotel surpasses all of them in terms of being a boutique hotel that is both comfortable and in a wonderful location.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
