Very quiet and friendly atmosphere, friendly front desk team. The whole first floor made of armoury. The room, junior suite, was big and air condition worked fine. The bathroom is very clean but taking a shower is a matter of getting used to wall-fixed shower head. In total it is a very classic furnished surrounding. The fitness room is open... More

The Avalon in NYC is a gorgeous renovated old hotel on the east side of 32 St. Old world marble lobby, updated amenities, beautiful bathrooms. It's convenient to mid town, Penn Station, the Flatiron district, Madison Sq. Park. Close to Korea town for excellent BBQ etc. Easy transport on almost every subway line. Very nice helpful staff. Well run hotel.

We took our adult son to NYC just before Christmas; we used to live there and have been visiting for 40 years. I found the Avalon online. We had never stayed in this part of Manhattan before, and we're sold! Close to Times Square and 5th Avenue, and the transportation inks are great -- lines 1-6 plus N and R... More

We had never stayed here before, so we were quite excited. This is an old hotel, that has been kept fairly well, although there are signs of wear and tear. We were given a smoking room (didn't know hotels still had them any more). So, we switched. The new room had a bathroom door that wouldn't shut, so the maintenance... More

Great boutique hotel in the middle of Korea town. Close to everything and rooms are well maintained. Hotwire messed up the booking but hotel staff took care of everything and made things right and bumped us up to a two queen bed suite.

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.
