My daughter and I stayed at the Avalon Hotel from 14 - 21 July 2015. On arrival, we were advised of a plumbing problem with our room. However, we received an upgrade to an executive suite for our inconvenience. My daughter is coeliac and the hotel provided gluten free bread for her breakfast. The staff were very welcoming and helpful... More

The loacation of the hotel is excellent! The room is big and comfortable, so is the bed. The staff was helpfull and friendly. The room is very clean and the wooden flooring adds to the quality of the room. Minor problems are that there is no furniture in the bathroom to put your things, and the heating was not working...

I stayed 1 week with my family. The room was big and comfortable, and the cleaning service made it even more confortable. Annie at the front desk is the best! She is a "problem-solver".

My mother and I stayed here for a week. We had a spacious double room, but there was a pillar in between the beds that made it very difficult for me to get in and out of bed, especially at night. The rooms could use a bit of renovation. The staff were courteous, but didn't go out of their way... More

Disappointed by The Avalon.....it is not really what you'd expect by calling it a boutique hotel. To me, as a frequent traveler I classify boutique with a certain criteria. None of those things are what you'd find there. It is a very traditional old school hotel. The only boutique item is the flat screen tv and hardwood vs. Carpeting, and... More

This hotel definitely had that European flavor. The staff was lovely, the espresso machine perfect, the room (a junior suite) spacious. There were 2 double beds as well as a pull out couch, which the staff made up for us after we realized that our 2 boys were too big and squiggly to share. The air conditioning was a bit... More

Good value for the price and location. We had a clean family room on the 12th floor which had two double beds and a sofa bed (TVs in front of each bed). There is also a small fridge.

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.
