Very clean and wonderful river view. My only complaints are valet parking (annoying!!) get new tv's and refrigerator. Great walking trails!! Will be back.

Reviewed 5 May 2012

The Avalon was recommended by a friend of ours. We booked the recommended room and we were extremely satisfied. The room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We needed various directions to both walk and drive to places and we got excellent and accurate assistance. We went to the restaurant next door for happy hour and enjoyed what we had ordered. You need to stay with the happy hour food and drink to keep your tab from growing quickly. The only problem we had was that the hotel uses 130 volt light bulbs in the room. This means that they glow a dull yellow at best. It is very difficult to get enough light to read so you are best off bringing your own light bulbs. Sounds silly, but it will be worth it!

Room Tip: If you have time to spend in the room and the weather is good, then book one of the river view rooms...

Can't say enough nice things about the Avalon. Check in was smooth & efficient. We booked 3 rooms for 3 couples for a birthday weekend trip and they gave us 3 rooms side by side, all with a deck overlooking the river. Beautiful! Rooms were clean, well maintained, comfy and well insulated so you never heard any noise from outside your room. We had booked our rooms using Living Social specials that included a $50 food & beverage credit per room, plus 2 drinks per room and 20% off spa services. Awesome deal. We had room service dinners sent over from the onsite restaurant (due to the restaurant being totally booked for a wedding party). We were expecting a long wait, poor service and marginal food offerings due to the wedding party preparations, but nothing could have been further from the truth! Our meals came quickly, brought by pleasant wait staff, everything was hot and yummy! The spa is also wonderful. While we didn't have time to use the discount for treatments, we did use the complimentary wet & dry areas. Everything was very clean, and towels, ice cold wash cloths & fresh fruit waters were kept fully stocked. There is a small continental breakfast served on each floor, but we did not partake as we already had brunch reservations at a local restaurant. We loved the Avalon and will definitely return!

Room Tip: Make sure you spring for a river view room as those are the only ones with a balcony.

Beautiful view, amazing room, very comfortable beds, breakfast on each floor and an extremely nice staff. I realized I didn't bring hairspray and popped into the spa, a little embarrassed but the young lady smiled, quickly helped me and out the door I went. I cannot wait to go back!

Our stay was wonderful, room was nice and clean and the serve was great until we order off the late night menu. It was grocery store pot pie, a box of mac&cheese, the pizza was a frozen brand and the cost was way over priced.

Room Tip: ask for the king size room with a view of the river

We apologize for your less than positive experience with our late night room service menu. We are in the process of adding some fresh menu items such as pizza’s made from our kitchen and fresh salads made daily.

We are grateful to you for letting us know about your experience so that we can address it and move forward.

Thank you,
