Beautiful Hotel, Beautiful View! We stayed off season mid-week and got a great rate. The suite was great and the staff was very accommodating. The suites probably have the best view out of all the hotels in Avalon. Will definitely come back in the future.

There is a golf cart rental kiosk right outside Hotel Metropole. I would imagine that on summer weekends you would need to book weeks in advance, especially holiday weekends!

Avoid the 'steep' hill especially since you'll likely be pulling luggage (level walk to hotel). As you walk up north Crescent Avenue (from the boat landing piers) and get to METROPOLE AVE...turn left and hotel property is... More
