Having stayed in Miami a couple of times now I found this to be one of the better hotels on Ocean Drive for it's price range. Upon arrival the staff were very eager to help us settle in and during our stay they were very accommodating to all our requests. The room we stayed in was a decent size and... More

We stayed 2 nights at Avalon. The location is great -if you like South Beach- You are in front of the beach so you just cross the street and there you are. Breakfast was free, this is a plus. They have free Wi-fi, another plus. The staff was nice and kind, they give beach towels -free of charge- another plus.... More

This hotel has a laid back atmosphere and a great location. We stayed two nights in the sea view room in the corner, which benefitted from two windows. It was brilliant. It is an Art Deco building in the great location. I will stay again when I'm back on the South Beach.

I've stayed on Ocean Drive quite a few times over the years always on business usually attending an event/conference that is happening in the big resort hotels further up the coast. I love the Art Deco buildings of the area and the close location to the boardwalk/beach. It is very touristy and as a result more pricey but what's not... More

Nice 3 star hotel in South Beach. Pros: Nice aroma throughout the hotel (I believe they put an aroma vaporizer in the central air to keep this) Nice view from my room. Windows opened to leave fresh breeze in ** The fresh orchid next to flat screen tv. Clean room and public areas. Mini Fridge in closet * Great location.... More

It can be a gamble finding an Art Deco hotel on Miami Beach that allows you to enjoy the charm of a bygone era, but offers accommodation that is of a decent standard. The Avalon is one that fitted the bill. Right in the heart of South Beach, the room was clean, tidy and the bedding linen crisp and white.... More

I stayed in this hotel with a friend of mine. The service was very good, and for us it was just a dream vacation coming true. The front desk team was very friendly, they even have a Dutch guy working in the front desk! Overall, I loved my stay, loved the weather, and will definitely be returning there!

This is an art deco hotel. It is less expensive than lots of hotels in South Beach, but it is perfectly fine. It is clean and the room has what I call a "heavenly bed"....flat screen tv....not plush but plenty fine for a few nights in South Beach. It is in the perfect location to get to the beach and...
