The Avalon Hotel is within easy walking distance from the dock. Lisa greeted us warmly as we entered the lobby. As we checked in, we were offered coffee, tea, fruit, cookies, pretzels, peanuts.
Our room was located on the 3rd floor overlooking the courtyard. It appeared to be newly renovated in the Craftsman style and featured artwork and tile by local artists. This was our first time to sleep on a "memory foam" mattress--very comfortable.
We especially liked the custom mirror in the bathroom! It had 2 lights built into the mirror that gave excellent light for applying makeup and shaving. Lisa went above and beyond the call of duty to research where the mirror was manufactured.
Continental breakfast in the nicely landscaped courtyard provided a delicious start to our day. We enjoyed the warmth from the lighted firepit, and and watching the Koi swim in the pound . The roof-top deck provides a wonderful view of the ocean.
