I spent a week here. I found all the staff very professionnal, help full and kind. The room was enough for myself. There were some building on the street but with some ear plug it was resolved real Quick.

I notice that the cleaner lady didn't change the sheet on my last night so maybe it could be good to focuss the cleanung staff once again.

My room was the 601.

I recently spent 3 nights at the Avalon and overall, it was very pleasant stay. This was the second time I stayed here (first time was in 2005), and while some things have changed, the experience remained just as desirable as I remembered. I was in room 707, a Junior Suite which I got for a surprisingly good rate online of somewhere around $220 per night.

The hotel is in a very convenient location, just around the corner from the Empire State Building, Herald Square, etc. and only a few blocks from Times Square. It is located right in the heart of Koreatown NY, which seemed like kind of a shady neighborhood after dark, but not at all unsafe. The hotel itself is very clean and inviting. Check-in/checkout was very simple, and all of the employees I encountered were friendly and helpful.

As for the room, it was great! Large and spacious with a nice entry foyer, very comfortable beds, a sitting area and work desk, plus not one but two TVs. There is a minibar but also a separate cooler for drinks in the room at no extra charge. The bathroom was excellent and clean, and also big with an individual shower/bathtub. The A/C works very well in cooling the room, however the system does take some figuring out to get working properly. The free Wi-Fi worked well and was great to have. One of the only downsides to the room was the poor view, which was a construction site behind the hotel that (be forewarned) gets going every morning at 7:30 AM, so good luck sleeping in late unless you bring earplugs! Fortunately, I assume that will be a temporary issue, but it's still worth noting. The other downside was the huge structural column directly in between the two beds, but that's more of a gripe than anything major. And, another issue is that the elevators were often very slow.

The hotel has a daily breakfast served in a room on the 2nd floor which costs about $15, though I was able to get it for free as part of a special when booking my room. I stopped by to check it out but didn't actually eat anything there, so I can't comment on the food, but it looked like a nice spread.

Overall I was really impressed with the quality of my stay and this hotel in general. I hope to return again next time I visit NYC.

Just returned yesterday from New York. Have been here many times as used to be an air stewardess! If you are looking for a budget price hotel look no further, the room size is amazing for New York standards, the buffet Evan though just a cold buffet was great fresh fruit, pastries and cereal set you up for the day. The free tea and coffee was a bonus when you have been out all day it was great to get a coffee and take it to your room, location was great for all the tourist attractions, felt safe at night. Staff helpful as l needed advice on going back to the airport by train. Would recommend this hotel to anybody and l would stay here again. Forgot to mention the bed was so comfortable too.

Nice rooms - we had 2 rooms on 7th floor. Views not great and building work was going on outside but it's a city so that's to be expected. Beds really comfy and hotel in general looked really nice everywhere, staff seemed friendly and helpful. No restaurant but there's loads of places nearby so isn't an issue. We had a really nice stay and would be happy to stay there again if and when we come back to New York.

We stayed at the Avalon hotel for two days in August. We had a great stay. The hotel has a great location close to Empire state building and walking distance to most things. The rooms are very spacious, especially for New York standards. The hotel is not newly renovated but nice and clean. And as stated before, very good size rooms! The breakfast buffet has a good variety of bagel and rolls and lots of pastries and sweets. We would definitely stay here next time we come to NY.

Great Hotel. Staff could not be more helpful. Lovely room...bigger than typical mid town. Beds were comfy. Great hot chocolate and coffee on tap. Location is another huge plus... Short walk from Penn Station and stones throw away from Empire S.B. We hope to be back again next trip to NY.
