I stayed at the hotel with my girlfriend in September. This was certainly a memorable visit as we got engaged in Central Park. On arrival to the hotel the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The room of the hotel was large, spacious and had all the amenities you would want. The free WiFi was great and there was also complimentary tea and coffee in the reception area.
The location of the hotel was also brilliant and this allowed us to go to and from our room throughout the day as anyone that visits New York will find it will be very tiring. We were out first thing in the morning until late at night so whether you've been shopping or to the tourist attractions with the hotel ideally situated you can recuperate for an hour before you hit the streets again! The hotel was very close to The Empire State Building and also to a Subway stop. We used the Subway the whole week and whilst at first it seemed quite daunting and hectic after a couple of days we got the hang of it and were confident in using it to get around everywhere.
As for New York itself we will definitely be back. It is the best place we have ever visited and have been suffering from post holiday depression since we left! The food, the people, the sights. Everything is fantastic. My main advice to anyone going to New York would be to plan before you arrive. There is so much more we want to see in New York so we will definitely be back and the first hotel we would look to stay in would for sure be the Avalon. It would be hard to beat!
