This hotel is right in the middle of it all in Miami. The staff was very pleasant and let a check in super early after we took a cruise that ended in Miami. We only had 1 night but we def took advantage and really got to experience Miami. The beach is right across the street! Would recommend to anyone... More

If you are headed to South Beach this hotel is a great stay. Directly across from the beach and walking distance from shopping and great restaurants. We arrived on an early flight and were pleasantly surprised to have a room ready at 10:00 a.m. Really - you go to South Beach to be outdoors and this hotel doesn't have all... More

I stayed here in July with family and the room was tiny. I paid for an ocean view room but all I saw out the window was palm trees. The smell was horrible, it smelled like mildew. The to top it all off they had my reservation under a different name, I had paid a night months before my vacation... More

We get that this isn't The Ritz or The Hilton, but your staff can make or break the place. So why have uninterested staff (not all of them) who treat guests as an unnecessary distraction. If they don't want to be here, move them on and get people that are willing to engage and be helpful. And can you get... More

Rooms are of decent size and cleanliness is appreciable. Offers valet parking only and it is 27$ per day.Came as a surprise for... More

The Avalon hands down is one of the most accomondating serviceable hotels, I ever had the pleasure of staying in. It's art deco all the way, it gives a nostalgic feeling. Ana was great, she made us feel really welcome.

After countless hours of exhausting research, I used Priceline to bid on a South Beach location hotel of at least 3 stars. My bid was $193.00 (taxes & fees made the total $228.63). This was a major splurge for me and for just 1 night. The hotel offers valet parking only but I learned ahead of time to park in... More

If you want an authentic retro South Beach experience, I highly recommend this property. Right in the heart of the trendy art deco district, the location is second to none. The rooms are clean and appointed with retro style furniture. Beds are comfortable and nicely appointed with crisp luxury linens and fluffy towels. The toiletries provided are high end. A... More

My husband and I stayed here while in a 22 hour layover coming from the Caribbean. Upon arrival, the staff was just amazing and made us feel very welcomed.
