Avalon Hotel in New York - Manhattan is close to a train station and strategically located for exploring many attractions. A few minutes from the hotel is the Empire State Building. On the edge of Midtown East, nestled between Murray Hill area and Koreatown, the hotel sits on a quiet street.
Koreatown offers a variety of Asian cooking options right outside. It's very convenient for transportation: Penn Station and Grand Central Station are both about a 10-minute walk and there are several subway lines to choose from within a three-block radius. It is also close to some of the New York's great tourist attractions; Macy's, Bryant Park and New York Public Library are within walking distance and its farther from Times Square and theatre district. The Empire State Building is two blocks away.
A relaxed holiday allows visitors to comfortably furnish the rooms (family rooms, shared rooms, superior). Rooms with hardwood floors and nice bedding are very comfortable and a good size. Clean, marble-clad bathrooms. There's a mini-fridge full of paid snacks, and even a second or cooler fridge for personal items.
There are no coffeemakers in the rooms (there's a free espresso machine in the lobby). Each hotel room has a bathroom. Bathroom facilities include make-up mirror, bathrobe, hairdryer, whirlpool and toiletries. A comfortable sofa corner is also included. Each room has a minibar, safe and desk. In addition, a telephone, radio, TV and computer.
