Well, first the pros say I. Great staff at every turn, Very welcoming and happy to assist with requests. The cons...... Although the room was of a very good size, especially for NYC standards, the furnishings were a bit dated. Perhaps to be correct, a lot dated. The temperature issue is real. There is no choice in what you get.... More

Our family recently travelled to NYC for a long weekend and stayed at the Avalon. We booked the travelzoo rate after reading reviews that the rooms were large. As we were travelling with two kids, we wanted to be sure we found a hotel with rooms large enough for us. We couldn't believe the size of the room. It was... More

We were nicely upgraded because the room that was assigned to us did not correspond to our initial reservation. The staff was very comprehensive and nice about it. We had reserved a room with two double beds and we were up graded to a junior suite, with two queens and a small living room with a sofa, which could easily... More

We were looking for a hotel somewhat between Grand Central and the Macy's Thanksgiving parade route. Found the Avalon and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The room (junior suite) was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable and bathroom large and also very clean. Definitely would return.

Typical problem with NYC hotels; small and worn out rooms, don't ever give you a good feeling (unfortunately, you need to spend +$300/night for a real 4-5 star hotel to get that feeling). If you're after location (which is critical for a NYC trip) and do not plan to spend much time inside, this hotel will make you happy. The... More

Great little hotel in the heart of NYC. The rooms were very spacious and all had hard wood floors or wood laminate, which made for a tasteful look. The sinks/pipes/showers are probably about ready for an update, but still functional. I believe there are 11 floors to the hotel. The elevators need to be mondernized - as they are extremely...

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.
