Stayed at the Avalon 25/1/2014 - 31/1/2014 Weather very cold junior suite excellent Hotel rooms spacious and warm.
Staff very friendly and will help to provide any relevant information required for any first time visitors.
The Hotel location is very good for attractions travel and Restaurants.
Anyone on first visit N.Y.C will be quietly surprised by this top notch hotel with great staff and ideal situation would strongly recommend to any visitor.

We stayed at the Avalon after much research, and were not disappointed. The hotel is in an ideal location for exploring New York. The staff are very friendly and can not do enough to help. The hotel room is a good size and the beds are very comfortable after a full day on your feet.
Would recommend!

I stayed at the Avalon from 12/17 - 12/20 2013. This is a nicely revamped building with quiet rooms, clean wooden floors, comfortable mattresses and big, spacious bathrooms (at least my suite's bathroom was enormous and quite modern). The staff and their service was impeccable. The hotel location is located a block and a half from the Empire State Building. The street is hectic, vibrant at night with all the restaurants and bars nearby but none of the noise makes it up to the upper floors.

All of the above plus a great price (taking into consideration the location and the time of year I visited). Bottom line: This is a gem!

Room Tip: Suite 1004 is excellent. The room is very spacious, quiet, with a large bathroom.

We stayed at Avalon hotel last december. It´s an excellent hotel, with a very big room (rare in NYC), with wood floor that is excellent for allergic people. The bath room is big and very clean.
The staff is helpful and friendly. The room is very quiet and the matress is very good.
The location is very good , near the 5th avenue and Empire State Building and Macy´s.
There are many restaurants near, but most of all are Korean restaurant, we didn´t try , but there is an Italian restaurant near (Bella Napoli) that is reasonable for a cold night when you is tired.
If I return to NYC I´ll stay again at Avalon and recomend for everyone.

Room Tip: We stayed at Queen deluxe suite, that is very big.

Good:

* Free tea and coffee in reception.
* Very friendly staff.
* Big room for New York and a very nice bathroom.
* Comfortable and very good value for money.
* Amazing location.
* Fairly quiet for New York City.
* Very clean rooms.
* Good amenities.
* Gave an express pass to the empire state building and coupons for top of the rock on arrival.

Bad:

* It could use a little updating.
* Very dark as our room faced a wall - I imagine this is normal for NY though.
* The doors of the wardrobe were loose and potentially a bit of a hazard!

I stayed at Avalon for a business trip to New York mid-January. Location was perfect for a $10-15 cab ride anywhere in the city. I've stayed in probably close to 30 hotels in Manhattan but I don't think I'll be needing to look elsewhere. Everything about this hotel is fabulous from the staff to the hardwood floors in the rooms to the luxurious bathrooms. I was in the executive king suite and slept amazing on the huge bed. Rooms are huge Samsung TVs. I won’t be staying anywhere else. Job well done!

Room Tip: Executive King Suite is the best way to go.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts on TripAdvisor about your recent stay at the Avalon Hotel New York.

I was very happy to read that you enjoyed everything about your stay with us. What I was most pleased to know was that you have stayed in over 30 hotels in Manhattan and because of your stay with us do not feel the need to look at staying at any other NYC hotel. That's high praise indeed and we are very grateful.

When your travel plans call for a return visit to Manhattan, please contact my office directly as I would like to personally handle your reservations.

My mum and i stayed here during our 10-day trip to NYC and loved it! The staff were always very helpful all the time right down to Carlos giving us an express pass for the Empire State Building upon arrival! The hotel is in a great spot and we very easily caught a cab up to Central Park South/Fifth Ave on most days and the subway to Lexington Ave to shop!

Thanks so much for a great stay Avalon Hotel - we will be back!
