Since being taken over by the Marriott/ Starwood, it has definitely been cleaned up. Looks like they focused on a moderate amount of renovations so things don’t seem dated in the rooms anymore. It’s not up to the Marriott Design level yet, but they have started and the property is definitely on par with Design just not the rooms. But my major issue is that I’m SPG Gold and before coming I had no idea that they have such a “loose affiliation” (their words), so you don’t get any perks like early check-in or late check-out. And if you ask for perspective on how soon housekeeping will take to have a room ready you get treated like you’re asking for top secret information. I thought me showing loyalty to Starwood/ Marriott was worth something and at the Avalon they make it clear that your loyalty isn’t worth anything to them.

Dear Michael L,

Thank you for taking the time to share your posting.

We do need to clarify that we have in not in any manner been "taken over" as you indicated by Marriott/Starwood. We are a member of Design Hotels who has an affiliate relationship with Starwood. Starwood members do earn points on their stays with us. The perks you refer to and their availability were set by Starwood via Design Hotels. We do make every effort however, as a courtesy to our Starwood guests, to accommodate any additional offerings when available.

Do trust this addresses any questions you may have. We wish you safe and happy travles.

I was hosting a family reunion for about 40 people at a different site in Palm Springs, and spent one overnight at the Avalon to prepare for my guests’ arrival. I had massive amounts of stuff with me — very heavy boxes of wine, gift bags, golf clubs etc. I was was shocked that not only did I NOT get the normal surly reception at the bell stand I would expect at Every other hotel in America, the bell stand not only took these items quickly, but they happily took them, stored them and retrieved them as I needed and when I needed. Great people at the front of the hotel representing this brand!

From the moment we walked in the door, our stay was a breeze. Every member of the staff, from the ream at the front desk to chef Jason we're eager and happy to help! The property is gorgeous and feels like a true oasis in the dessert.

The Avalon Hotel was beautiful. The rooms were clean and spacious with a kitchen. Beautiful all white decor, so chic.
The grounds were impeccable. The pool areas were perfect for relaxation or diving in for a swim. GREAT LOCATION. We got lucky and caught the weekend art fair on the main street. Cool vibe.

The Avalon is the perfect Palm Springs accommodation. Everyone at the hotel is very helpful. The restaurant - coffee shop that turns into a bar is sweet. The grounds are beautiful and lush. The town is walkable.
