Stayed for one night mid November. My arrival far before the allocated arrival time was no issue to the gentlemen who greeted me. Allowed me to leave my bags and even help myself to breakfast and use all the facilities. Excellent service. When my room was ready I found it to be spacious and immaculately clean if a little tired... More

Hotel is located on in a great place but did not realize how crowded it would be when we arrived at 10 p.m. It was difficult for our cab from the airport to find a place to drop us off.

I spent quite a bit of time researching hotels to stay at close to the Miami port prior to taking our cruise. I was looking for some place that had easy beach access and a good choice of dining options, both within walking distance of a hotel. I found it at the Avalon Hotel. Not only was the location great,... More

Excellent food. Went here for my 20th Birthday meal in Miami Beach Florida. Beautiful steak, great service, water constantly topped up. Expensive but worth it!! Would defo visit again, steak doesn't come with anything but big enough to fill you up. Need to order some chips on side separately but I will go back!

I got this hotel booked through a Hot Deal. We were given room 201 which is a corner ocean view room. The room itself was nice. If you have difficulty sleeping due to traffic sounds, loud stereos, the beeping of delivery trucks, or noise from other people in the hall this isn't the location for you. The room had nice,...

Priceline express deal said this place was comparable to the Hilton and Hyatt.. it wasn't. It was small and very noisy. We lost sleep. We heard doors slamming and the kitchen door that leads outside was right under us. We heard everyone out there talking and moving chairs and tables. Luckily we only stayed one night.
