My family of four stayed at the Avalon on new years eve, great choice. Room and bathroom are very spacious and clean, staff is always wiling to help. Hotel is very close to the 5th avenue and the Empire State, walking distance to Times Square. Hotel decor is classic and elegant. It's a sure beat, you won't regret it.

Recently stayed here for the Xmas period. The Hotel was fine for us as a couple. We were a stones throw from the Empire State Building. A block from Macy's. A bock either side for the underground. The hotel is of a classic period and not all rooms will face the street as ours did not. It is not cheap... More

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.
