I can see why this charming boutique hotel is #1 on Trip Advisor. We stayed for two nights prior to the Memorial Day weekend, and this place provided a real retreat to the hustle and bustle of the downtown area.
The Craftsman decor really brings an earthy vibe to the place. Look at their photo album and you can see the transformation of the hotel from a non-descript apartment building into the delightful place it is today.
All of the staff were very cordial. Just loved the back patio with its eloquent koi pond. We were even allowed to feed the fish ourselves, which was a real treat.
The complimentary breakfast was ample and filling. Rooftop deck showcased a sprawling view of Avalon, making it even more memorable.
I highly recommend this property.
