I'm coming to NY at the end of March with my teenage kids and my husband who REALLY doesn't want to come. For this reason, I am desperate to book a decent hotel in a good location so I've decided to book a suite at the Avalon. I know there are plenty of good, cheaper places to stay. I stayed at Hotel Edison with some friends 4 yrs ago which was adequate. It was clean but the room was small and the bathroom was tiny and in need of redecoration. The Avalon is more upmarket than I'd usually choose but I want everything to be as perfect as possible so my husband will wonder why on earth he was so reluctant to visit! Does anyone have an opinion on the Avalon? The air conditioning has been mentioned in a few reviews that I have read. Is it really a problem that could ruin our stay? My husband can't stand noise from clocks, heating etc whereas traffic noise is the thing that keeps me awake!
Also, someone mentioned they leave their husband at B&H to browse the electrical goods. That would suit my husband perfectly. Where do I find B&H please?
