What We Love
- The exceptional on-site dining at A Fish Called Avalon, a seafood restaurant with live music and a breezy terrace
- The location in the heart of Miami on world-famous Ocean Drive, with easy access to beaches, shops, museums and legendary nightlife
- Extra amenities available through the hotel’s nearby sister property, offering additional beach, pool and restaurant options
What To Know
- Located in Miami’s Art Deco District, meaning it can get a bit noisy from the nightlife
- Guestrooms are on the small side
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.
How to Get There
we just got off our cruise. we knew we weren't going to check in because it was early in the morning, but they did. they had beach chairs and beach towels in the closet and the beach was across the street. a cvs was a half a clock away. and a great cuban restaurant on Collins and 7th.
I stayed in room 318. Hotel is located in ocean drive, the busiest part south beach. Room was good size with comfy beds.clean,basic but smell in the room was really bad due to bad ventilation in the bathroom.Hotel staff was very friendly and happy to help. One big minus is that they don't provide breakfast in hotel. They are just offering free coffee in the morning.
Good and clean rooms, not too big though. The staff is relaxed. Sometimes too sloppy at check in or ordening the Valet service. If you need your car, take 30 to 40 minutes if you have to leave for the airport!! We had stress because in the early morning it took more than 40 minutes instead of the promised MAXIMUM 20 min. No traffic at that time of night (5 am) but apparently a boy asleep that didnt want to wake up.
The hotel have a terrible smell at the room. People are not polite at all. They said one thing for me and charged another. The manager not even wanted to talk to me. The hotel was with worker, really noisy room and the air conditioning does not work properly either.
Stayed in this place one night and had booked and payed for four nights. It is smelly, dirty,noisy and you should see what they consider included breakfast! Some hard expired defrost cakes and a guy next to it by a tipping box, unreal!
Listen, unless you want to see it by yourself do not stay, but stay away ! Working in progress all around the facade of the hotel, really don’t know how authorities let this happen! The worst ever!
