“GREAT STAFF”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Just came back from South Beach Miami and had to take the time to comment on our stay at the Avalon hotel. This was not our first and will not be our last stay at this hotel. The location is great and the staff is fabulous. Edith, Ana and George are really knowledgable on how a hotel is to be operated. They went over and beyond to make us comfortable in every way..The room is always clean and the beds are so comfortable. This is truly a boutique hotel....Thank you Edith, Ana and George. See you soon Avalon.

Pros: very friendly front desk staff, amazing location (on Ocean Drive, in the middle of everything), comfortable beds, and a well kept property.

Cons: the price was almost $250 per night (for some reason, all hotels in South Beach were crazy expensive, for the first weekend of April), worn furnishings, and a small room.

Aside from the price, this hotel is what you would expect for a 3 star hotel.

Booked this place on hotel tonight so got a bit of a discount on room. Excellent location on South Beach. Only stayed one night. Thoroughly enjoyed dinner at their restaurant A Fish Called Avalon. However, room was basic, clean, very small. Drinks at hotel bar very expensive. Two rounds of drinks for party of 4 totaled over $100. Parking valet was additional $27 but we did have option of usin nearby parking lot for $1/ hour. Pool and beach available through their sister hotel but we didn't stay long enough to try that out. We will definitely do dinner there again. All hotel staff very friendly and accommodating.

We spent one night here on our way to Cuba. The place is excellent: great location, nice rooms, excellent restaurant, helpful staff. It's close to, but in the middle of, all the loud bars up and down Ocean Avenue.

I will definitely be coming back to this hotel BECAUSE of he staff. Anna and George and Carlos (and others whose names I did not get) were so incredibly friendly and accommodating that I will definitely be back. Rooms were clean, beds comfortable and wonderful location right on Ocean Drive. Thanks for making our stay so great!! Bill

Stayed at the hotel Avalon for a quick getaway. The location was perfect, cost was reasonable and staff was extremely friendly especially Ana.

The restaurant has an incredible chef ( chef Kal) and the food was excellent. the wait staff was also very nice (thank you Christopher )

I would encourage everyone to book your stay here you will not regret it.

I visited with my Girl Friend stay for a week in South Beach. The room seem a bit small and not so much other then a place to sleep. We were out all day at the beach and hit up the bars and clubs by nite. I think next time I will spend more money for a better hotel. But yes the location was great I mean the first time I didn't have to rent a car while I was in another state. Everything was so close to me other then the Airport...
