Beachfront boutique hotel on Miami's legendary Ocean Drive.
Guests at this Ocean Drive hotel have a front row seat to South Beach nightlife. The famous coastline is directly across from the property. Visitors can dine alfresco at sidewalk tables at A Fish Called Avalon, a nod to the 80s movie of the same name. The boutique hotel wears its Art Deco jewels proudly, starting with the green neon sign that casts a bright glow over the patio umbrellas and palm trees. Rooms echo South Beach minimalism, with rectangular windows that open to let the breezes in.

Complimentary continental breakfast
Pool privileges at sister property, the South Seas Hotel
Rooms -- available in superior, partial view and beachfront versions -- echo the streamlined look of other Art Deco hotels. Gray bolster pillows throw a dash of color onto 350-count Egyptian cotton duvets. Wood headboards and nightstands anchor the room. Horizontal window panes open to Ocean Drive, adding retro Florida flair. LCD flat-screen TVs, EO Essential bath and skin care products, free Wi-Fi and local calls are standard amenities.
The Ocean Drive address is the hotel's strongest feature. Another major selling point of the boutique hotel is A Fish Called Avalon, a seafood-driven restaurant with sidewalk tables for prime people watching. Guests feast on signature dishes such as guava braised boneless beef short rib and beef tenderloin carpaccio while South Beach locals and visitors parade on by. Guests also have access to a pool and massages and body scrubs in the Palm Garden, thanks to a partnership with sister property the South Seas Hotel.

The front desk didn't seem to know too much about where we could listen toSalsa music other than Mango's. They need to know more about what goes on outside of South Beach. We were not allowed to listen to music at the restaurant A fish called
Avalon unless we had dinner there. All we wanted to do was have something to drink and have dessert while listening to the music.
When I first got to Avalon I wasn't suppose to check in until 3pm but when I arrived to Florida for the first time ever with the beating hot weather I was surprised and glad that they allowed me to check in right away when I got there. I like the
Avalon because it seems like it was in the middle of everything to me.
The room that I got was clean and neat and feels so good with the ac on esp. when the weather is so hot in Florida. The beds were comfortable and clean. There isn't too much noise when sleeping which is good. Wasn't disturb by any noise or anyone. Made it feel like home!
The staffs are very friendly and very helpful. They can help you out in anything.
I enjoyed my stay at the Avalon and would def recommend it to people and book it again in the future. :)
The Avalon is in a good location and the staff members were great! They are so helpful and want to make sure you have everything you need. The room was small but it was clean and the beds were comfortable.
Better than expected, the hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. Had some appetizers and wine at the bar the first nite which was very good. Very accommodating. Only negative I can think of was the free breakfast had only a few options,
but was adequate.
Valet is terrible, they were never to be found. I had to go inside to find them, room was so small and had a weird scent. Pay a little more and stay somewhere else.
Breakfast consist of coffee, tea, fruit and dry cereal.
This hotel is right where the action is in
SOBE right on Ocean Drive across from
the beach. Restaurant in front looked great
.....lots of diners but we
did not eat there. Short distance to
Lincoln Road restaurants and shops.
Good breakfast that
came with the room.
While not luxurious , it was clean and comfortable.
