Construction work meant could be noisy in mornings and looked messy and unclean outside. Otherwise a nice hotel, has been around a long time and showing signs of wear and tear but overall more than acceptable.

My family (wife, 2 kids and I) stayed here for 7 nights at the beginning of May. The hotel was nice and the family room was very pretty. We enjoyed our holiday. Excellent location. The Empire State Building (and a lot of other attractions) is just around the corner.

We had a good time there and my family love the place they stayed except for a small problem. The shower faucet is broken which reduces hot water amount, especially for the last two days. The last day, I almost had a cold water shower and my family have to use a neighboring room for taking shower. Such kind of problem shouldn't happen in a four star rated hotel. Hope that can be improved.

Great location, close to everything! Big Rooms compare to other NYC hotels I've stayed at. Some traffic noise in the mornings, but that's probably normal in that area. Close to Koreatown with restaurants 24/7

Reasonable price considering location and room size. Elevators are very slow and with no coffee making facilities in our room it was quite a time consuming process to get the morning heart-starter. Plenty of closet and drawer space.

The hotel is described as a boutique hotel and the Avalon might have been one 15 years ago but not any longer. The standard of the room was a huge disappointment and nothing compared to the pictures. The entire hotel need renovation. The service of staff in the reception was good but poor knowledge about most things and not that eager to assist/book etc. And the bell staff need to get new jobs - grumpy, difficult with english and not serviceminded at all. BUT for the price and the great location its a really good hotel for spending a long weekend or even a week in New York. Close to the subways, walking distance to many sightseeings.

The Hotel Avalon is in a great location, close to Empire State, Herald Square, walking distance to Times Square. The staff was consistently friendly and helpful. There was a large number of staff members for a small hotel. I only have two suggestions: coffee maker in the room and better wifi access in the room. It is a great value for the money.

Very homey and comfortable. Would have liked to have tea or coffee in the room. Lighting not good around the desk--not enough wall plugs for computer and lamp to be both plugged in. Otherwise a great value and lovely experience.

Overall, very good place and excellent location. Our room was close to the elevators so it was quite noisy. We had problems with the Internet connection, which did not work in our room (we had to go in the hallway or in the lobby). The TV didn't work either, nor did the pre-programmed functions on the phone.

My stay at the Vincci Avalon was inconsistent in nature - both highs and lows. On the plus side, the room was very large and the overall cleanliness of the hotel was good. Location is excellent. On the downside, it appeared there was both a lot of deferred maintenance in my room (lamp broken, tv didn't work, lighting generally poor and slow Internet access) and, due to very limited hours for the engineering department, not great response in addressing the issues. I DID find a very responsive Bellman who took a risk and made another room available to watch a playoff game I was anxious to see. But, the price was excellent.... Oh, they were VERY sticky about the check-out time and tried to charge me a half day's room rate just to stay an extra 90 minutes, even after my extreme patience with the maintenance issues...

We arrived late morning expecting not to find a room ready; not only was one ready but we were upgraded to a junior suite. We had mentioned that we had stayed at the Vincci La Rabida in Seville and like it very much; apparently they appreciated the compliment and gave us a larger room!

We arrived at the hotel at 9 in the morning. Had to wait at the reception for about 30 minutes because only one employee spoke english (hardly) spanish owned hotel chain, all or almost all employees are spanish, being in the USA you woulg think that english would be primary language... We specified that we had requested upon reservation a non smoking room because my daughter has asthma, the room reverved for us was probably not so they upgraded us which was great. We left our luggage at the reception and when we came back at night they could not find it, they were arguying that we had already picked it up... They finally found it after 20 minutes and almost giving us a heart attack .How could our luggage been given to somebody else when we had handed the bellboy our coupons with our names on it... And it was the same employee both times in the morning and at night that handled our luggage.The hide-a-bed in the room had no sheets in it ( we were 3 in the room), we had to call room service at 11 at night when we opened it.Th bed (in the sofa)for an executive suite was more than terrible, you could feel all the metal bars from the structure through the 2 inches... mattress) There was a cupboard beside the fridge that had old opened carton of juice and yogurt in it( not refrigerated), we asked twice for them to unlock the fridge which they did not do and also ask 3 times for an extra bathrobe until we had it, and I had to run after the maid to get it...

For a room in New York City, this place was very clean and spacious at a price you couldn't beat! We were in a Junior Suite so I couldn't tell you about the other rooms. The bed could've been a little more comfortable, but other than that I would recommend it. The service was very friendly as well.

Mgmt was advised from the first day that the TV was not functioning. After the seventh day, it was still not repaired. The A/C was EXTREMELY noisy and not adjustable. The mgmt was also notified that the floo in the dining room was EXTREMELY slippery. In fact, a few older ladies actually slipped the following day! There were NO spaces in the public areas of the Hotel...

Only issue was I thought you booked us with a breakfast and the hotel said breakfast was not included in the price. This caused confusion the first two days. We finally got the manager to ok the breakfast. Your profile of the hotel said breakfast was included but the manager said the reservations did not specifically say that breakfast was included. This confusion should be cleared up between your company and the hotel.

The hotel is very clean and quiet with competent staff. The continental breakfast is adequate, but could be better. The rooms are nice size, but the room shown on the website, is not the room that we received. The bathrooms are on the small size, but very luxurious with marble floors and sinks. My two major complaints are that you cannot adjust the temperature from your room. The air-conditioning is either on or off and you have to call the front desk and ask them to turn the air conditioning on and off. Basically, your room is either very cold or very warm. It's tough to get it at a comfortable temperature and keep it there. Also, the view out of our room was less than desirable. Another drawback...NO INTERNET CAPABILITIES IN THE ROOM. However, for $175.00 a night in NYC, I thought that the room was fairly priced. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were great!
