We stayed for a weekend to visit family who came to St Pete for business and pleasure. This weekend was extremely busy due to big baseball game and the pier celebration. This place is clean and the Art Deco decor beautiful. The staff treated us like it was a more star hotel. From 5-7 complimentary wine champagne and beer. Excellent coffee every morning in the really pretty and comfortable indoor and outdoor lounge. Next door is the sister hotel with a small but very nice pool and outdoor bar where you can also order food. Now not to forget the TERRIFIC bar and restaurant. Inside with outdoor seating also The staff was fast efficient and very friendly. Not to forget that the Bloody Mary and breakfast was delicious. If you’re going to St Pete. Check these places out. You will not be disappointed

Hotel's Favourite
I have had a fantastic 2 night stay at the Avalon. This is a genuine, non-chain, marvelous hotel with free parking! The staff is wonderful, the room excellent and extremely clean, and you cannot beat the location! Everything downtown is within walking distance from the hotel. Some good eats recommendations nearby: 4th Street Shrimp Store, Naked Farmer and Swah-rey for super mini cupcake desserts. Thanks Avalon for a perfect state. I will be back and have told all of my friends go ignore the "McMega Inns" and stay at the Avalon.

...and to this, that and the other....The morning coffee (until 10:30) and the evening wine (until 7:00) offer quiet times to relax and enjoy the hotel's shaded front porch. BYOB for your lunch beverage.

Older but charming, we tried this one out for a much needed couples weekend in St Pete. As avid coffee drinkers I called ahead to see if they have Keurig machines in the rooms and was told "Oh no, this is an old hotel, we have coffee makers in the room, but not Keurigs!" Hmmm, we are still not clear why being an older building means no Keurig, but can assure you that if you were to bring your own and use it in the room you will not trip the circuit breakers. We had a suite, which meant we were staying in the building next door. Despite calling ahead and asking for a room as far away from the elevator as possible, our room was literally the closest to the elevator, the hotel was booked, with no way to change rooms. Oh well... The elevator did not prove to be a nuisance though. The rooms are small and cozy. The bathroom is VERY small, if you are over 6 feet tall, you are in trouble. The water pressure in the shower left much to be desired. The shower head seems to be set to mist as well, making washing your hair challenging. Well rinsing your hair actually. The lobby staff were friendly, and the happy hour at 5 with wine and champagne was a nice touch. You can use the pool next door, but we never got around to it.

Dear Mr. Boba, We are sorry you didn't enjoy your stay with us, as a small family owned boutique hotel we strive to make sure that our guests are well taken care of and enjoy themselves while with us. I'm not sure either what the age of a property has to do with the coffee pot in the room, but unfortunately that is not something we offer. Besides the regular pot in the room we do brew coffee every morning in the lobby as well if you chose not to make your own. As a small property we do our best to accommodate all requests but we have just so many rooms and we do typically sellout. I wish you had advised us of the issue with the shower as I could have had our engineering department take a look and remedy the shower pressure. We do hope if you make it to St. Pete again in the future you would give us another try.

This hotel exceeded my expectations. Great location, wonderful and very, very pleasant staff, amenities were perfect and parking was not an issue at all. Great crowd, fun people, and nice perks like nightly wine/champagne from 5-7. Pool is like a minute walk from Avalon front office, NOT far at all! Room provided comfy stay and kitchen was nice touch. Lobby was absolutely beautiful and sitting on the front deck just outside lobby with morning coffee was peaceful. All around great hotel. I will definitely be back!!
