An oceanfront throwback to Miami’s Art Deco heyday on Ocean Drive, with beach-towel service
Where the ocean meets the street in sunny South Beach, Miami’s Art Deco golden age lives glamorously on. With its beachfront façade set off by a 1955 Oldsmobile and canopy of umbrellas, Avalon Hotel recreates the thrilling style of its home city’s vintage era on one of the city’s most famous thoroughfares. Orchids are always in bloom in the lobby and guest rooms, and the bright electric blue of the hotel’s neon marquee never diminishes.
Although ever-popularattractions, like Collins Avenue, Lincoln Road Mall and countless bars and clubs, are within walking distance, as long as you’re a guest here, there’s plenty to dazzle you closer to home. Through the property and its sister hotel, South Seas, you can enjoy beach access and towel service, plus full pool privileges. And at the hotel’s lobby seafood restaurant and music venue – winner, along with the hotel, of a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence – you’ll find magic right at your front door.
In each of Avalon’s tastefully decorated accommodations, you’ll find a comfortable space in crisp whites and bright colors. Each bed is piled with plush spreads, each bathroom boasts refreshing amenities and soft waffle-weave bathrobes and an artful orchid makes for a glamorous work-desk centerpiece. Choose from a quiet abode with a double bed in the Classic Double room or, in the Partial Ocean View Queen room, a queen bed and a glimpse of the glittering Atlantic.
If you’re in the mood for fresh local fare, you’re in luck: A TripAdvisor favorite is right downstairs in Avalon’s beautiful Art Deco lobby. At A Fish Called Avalon, you’ll discover an impressive menu of seafood dishes, a notable wine list, live music and a breezy terrace for al fresco dining.
The Avalon Hotel is located in the heart of Miami’s Art Deco District, only a 20-minute drive from the airport and a short walk from the Versace Mansion, the Miami Beach Boardwalk, shopping districts and an array of museums. Outdoor adventurers will enjoy extensive local options for windsurfing, parasailing, paddleboarding or golfing.
