We visited the hotel again this september, our fifth time at the hotel. Unfortunately, it will propably be our last. We have always had a nice, big room but this time we had a very small room, which was nothing we expected, especially since we were staying for the fifth time. It was on the higher floors but on the noisy side of the street and right next to the elevators. The room itself was clean.
One day, we didn't have our room cleaned until the evening. From our last stay we knew not to go to the breakfast, because they only served mainly fruits and pastries and the location is no longer the restaurant next to the lobby (which we used to love!). We have always had someone take our luggage to our room after checking in but this time we had to take our own luggage upstairs (not a big thing but would be a nice touch if they would be delivered there.). When leaving the hotel, we had an unfortunate mistake with the taxi that we requested and we ended up arriving to the airport much later than we had wanted.
The location is still perfect, and there are nice restaurants a few blocks away. The Avalon has been very nice every other time we have stayed there, so hopefully this was just a bad week for them.
