We spent a week at The Avalon for our wedding in August. and we loved this hotel. The only thing disappointing would be that they didn`t have a bar, but the service was outstanding! Great location too!

We booked a junior suite with two queen size bed and breakfast. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable, furnitures was a bit dated but this was not really an issue.

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.
