The Avalon is one of New York‘s newest luxury hotels, conveniently located just blocks from Madison Square Garden, Penn Station, the Empire State Building, Macy‘s Herald Square, and the Jacob Javits Convention Center. The hotel boasts a European style with an intimate feel, yet children are heartily welcomed. Its 100 rooms are more spacious than those of many midtown hotels, so there‘s more than enough room for a family of four or five. Internet-savvy kids will also appreciate the high-speed internet access, and mom and dad will enjoy the complimentary morning newspaper, free continental breakfast, and windows that actually open to the world outside. The hotel also boasts a doorman, concierge services, and a multi-lingual staff that doesn‘t mind kids that ask lots of questions. The hotel doesn‘t have a restaurant but there are a ton of family restaurants and popular NY eateries located just steps from the front door.
