I enjoyed so many things about my recent stay at Hotel Avante: the pleasurable front desk service, the modern design, the complimentary 24 hour wifi, the TV channel options, the variety of amenities from the bathroom, the very comfortable bedding, and the complimentary breakfast. The pool area also looked very relaxing!
