The spirit of Marilyn Monroe and 50s Hollywood glam is present in all its chrome glory at the Avalon. This hotel was fantastic from its front desk service, personally escorting us to our rooms, to the funky, retro decor in the rooms and around the hotel. Friendly staff greeted us from the moment we arrived. Valet car service was quick. Reception staff attentive when I mentioned my teenage daughter wasn't feeling well they quickly asked if there was anything they could do or get for her and then gave her a bottle of water.
The hotel vibe is mid-century modern and both our teenaged girls LOVED THE ROOM. The vanity table was huge hit. The pool area was lovely and we enjoyed our cabana lunch poolside. All hail the Kale Cesar! The same pool you can see in pictures of Marilyn Monroe when she lived here for a few years back in the day, when the hotel was residential units. Such a fun fact that helps escalate the nostalgia of the property and one of the reasons we chose to stay here.
Close enough to "Golden Triangle" (which we learned from hotel staff) or Rodeo Dr. to walk or only a short drive into Hollywood.
We have never stayed at a "boutique" style hotel but everyone enjoyed the rooms, the dining at Oliverio and their stay, even my mother-in-law who has quite particular tastes. It was something different in a delightful way and we are so pleased to have experienced at little of the lux life in Beverly Hills. Cheers from Canada!
