Friendly staff, great location in Mid town if you want to do some tourism, shopping, etc. Very close to the Empire State building, Macys and other shops. If you like walking, you can walk to Times Square and catch many of the show.

On my first trip to New York (my husbands 4 th trip.) Arrived late at night but no worries checking in. Room was clean, warm (were able to control temp) and spacious. On the 10th floor so very little noise from the street. Staff were very friendly. Never ate there but food looked lovely. Close to all main attractions -... More

I got a great deal on a room at the Avalon Hotel for my birthday weekend in February. The location cannot be beat as you are away from the main tourist hotels near Penn Station but still within walking distance of all the transportation hubs. I highly recommend upgrading your room to one of the suites for a real New... More

I was a woman travelling alone and looking for a comfortable, reasonably priced hotel in the heart of the city near Penn Station and I found it. Like some of the other reviews I was skeptical about what I would find once I got there because the price was so good. I was pleasantly surprised. The lobby is small but... More

Nice hotel 2 blocks from Empire State Building, in Koreatown. 2 subway stops less than 5 min. walk, and Penn Station & Madison Square Garden an easy walk. Nice lobby and a sitting area with free coffee, cappuccinos, hot chocolate and tea, friendly staff. Room was comfortable and very quiet, which is a great plus for Midtown - never heard... More

The hotel's people are really nice and helpful, from the doorman to the deskpeople. Rooms are big, cosy and clean. The hotel's style is old fashion but very comfortable. A good address I recommend in NY midtown.

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.
