Stayed at Avalon for three nights in March. The hotel is excellent located. The Empire State Bld is in the close neighbourhood and you can easily walk to Times Square, Union Station, Penn Station etc. When we checked in they would give us a room with one king bed, with the explanation that that was according to our reservation. The personnell at the desk were at first not willing to accept that we had ordered a room with two beds, even if we showed them the voucher stating it clearly. They offered to make up the sofa-bed in the room and try to move us to another room the day after, if available. We were not willing to accept that, and after checking the booking system once again, a room with two beds was available after all! The room was on the 5th floor facing the back-yard, and surprisingly quiet to be situated in the middle of NYC. The room was spacious with two flat-screen TVs and the bathroom was ok, but both were in need of a refurbishment. Dark wallpaper and brown curtains made it very dark and the lightning was not sufficient. Our reservation was for a deluxe suite. I am sure our room was not in that category, but we did not bother to further argumentation. Plus for wooden floor in the room and for an extra fridge, since the mini-bar was was of the automatic type, in which you cannot move anything withoug being charged for it. Comfortable beds, a spacious wardrobe and a safe were also a plus. All-in-all we enjoyed staying at this hotel and will definitely consider to stay there again later.
