We stayed 10 days in the Avalon hotel and it was a very good choice. We got a good deal for a junior suite, so we had a large room at the price of a normal one (very rare in ny!).
The hotel is so well located that we didn't need to wake up very early in the morning to reach any place!It is everything behind the corner, underground, museums, good restaurants, malls!
The rooms are old fashion, not very modern at all...but the personnel keeps them very clean. The towels and the sheets were changed every day. The only negative aspects were the views (not that great!) and the hitting system (very noisy).
The persons working there were always very helpful and kind.
There is no additional services like swimming pool or fitness center, but the wi-fi is for free.
Overall it was very good choice!!

I had read mixed reviews on the Vincci Avalon prior to arrival in New York, but I am happy to say that the hotel was lovely. Check in was super smooth, with very friendly and charismatic staff. I found Melody to be particularly friendly and efficient.

Our room was a Junior Suite on the 9th floor. The bathroom was nicely presented with twin sinks, separate tub and shower and was always very clean. The view from the room was not great, but to be honest we were never there to see the view. Mini bar prices were extremely high, but again a minor detail. We had 2 large flat screen Sony tv's in our room which was a lovely touch. Then there was the bed!!! What a bed it was too. Massive, with the most luxurious cotton sheets and lovely warm duvet. It was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever slept in.

The hotel itself is located on 32nd street. It is just round the corner from the Empire State Building and a few blocks from Macy's. Closest subway is 33rd street which offers easy connections to midtown, uptown and downtown Manhattan.

Overall a wonderful stay in NYC, with some great staff and a hotel in a great location, that is close enough to touch all of the sites, but far enough away not to wake you up in the morning!

We happened upon the hotel on a web search and booked because of the great price. We stayed this past week for the Westminster Dog Show and can not say enough great things about the staff and hotel. Everyone was exceptionally polite and helpful. The price got us to book this hotel but the staff will keep us coming back. We usually pick a different hotel everytime we travel to New York but will only stay at the Vincci Avalon from now on. It is convenient and the excellent service makes the stay truly enjoyable.
