Only stayed one night for business. Booked the room only a few daythe s before stay and the price was very reasonable. Spoke directly to the hotel and felt that the staff really wanted me to stay with them. Very welcoming. Good room rate for a last minute booking. Arrived late on Tuesday night. Check in was very easy and night clerk was very hospitable. Empire Pizza is a block away on 5th ave. for good late night food. I used to have an office a few blocks away so I knew the neighborhood. Room was clean and very old style NY. Big windows and hard wood floors and over stated trim. Floor was warm and did not creak. Stayed on 5th floor facing the street. Room was quiet and comfortable. Bed was very comfortable. WiFi in the room was a little flaky. Breakfast buffet is expensive for what you get and caters to European travelers as well as American. Better breakfast for my needs is available down the street. The Library / Business center was very comfortable and a good place to work. All the hotel staff were very helpful and gracious. Rumor is the building has been sold to a new investor group that will try and turn the Avalon into a 5 star hotel. I will definitely try them again.
