Avalon Hotel New York”

Location, rooms and staff

I travelled with my 25 year old daughter so we had booked a room with two double beds. We were early to check in and were offered an upgrade to a room with only the one bed so didn't take it. we left our bags with the super staff, had a hot chocolate in the lovely little lounge area and then wandered around until our room was ready at 3pm. The room itself was gorgeous, two double beds, two televisions, lovely bathroom, lounge area with desk, coffee table etc. if (and hopefully) when I return to New York, I will definitely stay here again - we loved it! It's situated in 32nd Street which is in Korea a town right near the Madison Avenue corner. We walked every day and it took about 15 minutes in the snow to walk right into Timres Square. There were lots of Korean restaurants close by, our fav was Miss Korea BBQ. The hotel is really elegant the staff super courteous, friendly and extremely knowledgeable about anything we wanted to do such as which subway to take downtown or uptown. There was nothing I could fault about the Avalon Hotel.

A Pleasant Hotel in the heart of New York City”

Staff helpfulness, Cleanliness, Location

We had a very pleasant stay at the Avalon, NYC. What struck me was the helpfulness of the staff. In particular, when I had left my pair of pearl earrings after checking out on 14 July 2015. Upon my realisation, I asked the front desk staff if there was any possibility of finding my earrings. She took the trouble to check with housekeeping and came back to me soon with the earrings. I was absolutely impressed and certainly appreciative. However, there were a couple of other concerns which I thought the management at Avalon can improve on. One is the condition of the "ageing" elevators which stop unpredictably at different floors for different lift passengers. The other is the provision of essential bathroom amenities eg. toothbrushes, toothpaste & comb. These were not listed on the hotel's website and we were caught offguard. But it would be a nice gesture to provide a set at least. On the whole, I would say that I would like to return to this hotel in my future visit to NYC.

clean hotel, close to koreatown”

most hotels in ny are tiny, but the rooms here are somewhat spacious

Last minute business trip to the city. I love to eat in Koreatown, so I chose the Avalon, since none of the local hotels to Koreatown are actually nice to stay in. This is not the most luxurious hotel, but it is clean, and the rooms are spacious. I guess I caught a bug while in NY, and was feeling ill the day I was checking out. I asked for a later checkout and was given until 12:30 to checkout. I wished I was given some more time to rest, but I understand if they are booked and need to get the room cleaned for the next guest. I've stayed in all types of hotels in city. Avalon isn't the nicest, but it is great value and is located in a prime location which makes it easy for me to meet clients.

Nice hotel and a free upgrade”

Attractive hotel, central location

We found a good deal for a standard double room, which we expected to be small but serviceable for a quick weekend trip to New York. When we arrived, they told us that they had given us a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe king suite, which was lovely, spacious, and very comfortable. Overall the hotel was attractive, and the location is convenient. We had a very pleasant stay.

A lovely well placed Mid Town Hotel”

Room Upgrade

This is a lovely well situated almost boutique hotel very close to everything you could want to do in New York. The staff were very good and we even managed to get a room upgrade which was a beautiful room with jacuzzi bath which was great after a long day touring New York. The only down side was the Air conditioning which could not be adjusted so we had to open the windows which did let in a bit of traffic noise. On the whole the hotel was excellent.

Being on the corner of 5th and 32nd the location was amazing . Loved the size of the room. Coffee machine in foyer/lounge was terrific.

We had a lovely stay of 9 nights in the 40sq junior suite with two double beds. There is a building site behind the hotel which was very noisy and we had problems with the heating not working but an oil heater fixed that. The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. It was nice to stay in a small boutique hotel in a great location in NY. Lots of casual eating places nearby. Walking distance to so many places and subway stops. Beds very comfortable . Bath was a nice luxury too. I would stay here again, especially as it felt so central to everything and it had a nice, intimate feel to it.

my wife and i stayed at avalon for 7 nights. in our first room was much smaller than expected, plus the tv wasn't working - needless to say we asked for an upgrade. the staff were very helpful and put us up on the top floor in a larger room... hotel is situated on 32nd street (korea way), we had some trouble finding it as there is no sign out front. amenities & furniture for the hotel are a bit outdated. it's not the most flash hotel - i won't be staying here again unfortunately, despite the great staff.

Near by Korean town, Clean, Large Room

We enjoyed our staying at the avalon hotel. Since we were trying to eat Korean food majority of the time. It was literally right next to Korean Town and two blocks away from hotel. Room was Large and It was good for family. Consider it's at near by down town area, hotel was quite clean. However, hotel doesn't have ice machine to public like any other hotel. you have to ask staff every time you want ice. Also, They don't provide in room coffee machine and guest refrigerator was not cold enough to keep my water and other drinks. other than those two things, I would recommend to my friends and families.

Spacious and well located”

Room size, location to attractions and subway.

We didn't get off to the best start. I was travelling with my sister over NYE and had booked this hotel over others for two reasons... 1 they seemed more spacious than other hotels in the area and 2. we wanted a room with two beds, which this hotel offered at a reasonable price compared to others. The room we booked was called a "Junior 2 Double Beds Suite". When we arrived, it seemed that having noticed the room was only booked for two, the staff made the assumption that we were a couple and put us in a room with one bed. The staff was not exactly disagreeable when we brought this to their attention, but also weren't very apologetic. They chose to emphasise that the different room wasn't a downgrade and that the junior suite is available as two types of rooms, rather than simply apologising (when clearly the booking stated "2 doubles") and searching for a solution. Ultimately, we spent the first night with one of us on a sofa and were moved to a room with two beds the next day. Rather reluctantly, the staff also gave us complimentary breakfast for the first day when we requested it, but still remained adamant that the mixup was not the fault of the hotel's but rather our mistake (again... "Junior 2 Double Beds Suite"). Once this had passed however, our stay was quite enjoyable. The staff varied in degrees of friendliness but the rooms were clean and comfortable. The shower pressure could have been better, but it could have been worse and ultimately we were quite happy with our decision to stay there. Hotel Tip: If you are booking a room for 2 with the same or a similar situation to ours, it may be worth making the situation clear in the special requests section of the booking in order to avoid confusion upon arrival.
