Rooms & Rates
The Avalon Hotel is a classic 1940s property facing the water on South Beach’s Ocean Drive and is "one of the neighborhood’s Art Deco attractions," says National Geographic Magazine. In the heart of all the action, the property nevertheless maintains a calm that belies its location, making it popular with those looking for a quiet escape.
Fresh seafood and mojitos are the specialties at the hotel's popular Zagat-rated restaurant, A Fish Called Avalon, where the evening menu ranges from macadamia-crusted snapper to sake- and tarragon-glazed lobster tails. Meals can be taken in the art deco dining room or on the breezy street-side terrace where there are live Latin-Caribbean performances every night.
Guests receive free access to the outdoor pool at the South Seas hotel, 10 blocks away on Collins Avenue. Shielded by palm trees, the saltwater pool is surrounded by loungers and cabanas and is heated year-round. There's also direct beachfront access at the South Seas and a poolside café for burgers, salads and frozen cocktails. There's no in-house gym, but across the road, Lummus Park is a jogger's paradise and discounted passes to the local gym are available.
Well-maintained rooms are "simple and pleasant," notes Lonely Planet -- opt for a room on one of the higher floors as Ocean Drive can be noisy. Upgraded rooms are larger and have uninterrupted ocean views. Orchids, iPod docking stations and a European continental breakfast are also included.
