The Hotel at Avalon

Sharing is caring!

Located in the heart of Alpharetta, Georgia lies a place that seems magical and is aptly named Avalon.  Overlooking the beautiful main street is The Hotel at Avalon, a 330-room luxury hotel, a property in the Autograph Collection by Marriott.  It’s unpretentious luxury at its finest.

The Hotel at Avalon, inspired by the mythical land of Avalon where the “Good Life” prevails, redefines the art of living well with lifestyle amenities, including a rooftop pool, a fitness center, and valet services. Hotel guests experience modern Southern hospitality in a luxurious, walkable community featuring shopping perks, sought-after dining like South City Kitchen, upscale lodging, and premier event spaces at the Alpharetta Conference Center.

A Tour of The Hotel at Avalon

As guests enter The Hotel, they are welcomed by living walls and a “porch” swing on each side of the entrance.  Above them, the ceiling is painted a light shade of blue,  a nod to the southern tradition of protecting buildings from haints (restless spirits).

Once inside, guests experience the warmth and comfort of the lobby on the left which has a modern-retro feel and an actual wood-burning fireplace.  It’s a great spot for meeting old and new friends.

As guests depart the elevator, there is a unique elegant mural on each floor that welcomes them.

There are five different types of rooms at The Hotel:  standard guest rooms, deluxe guest rooms, executive king rooms, hospitality suites, and the presidential suite.  Most rooms are decorated in a palette of grey, cream, and buttery yellow, with creatively curated artwork and contemporary decor.

Guest Rooms

The Hotel at Avalon provides robes in each guest room, so guests won’t need to pack one in their suitcases.  (This means that there is more room in their suitcase to bring back some shopping treasures.)

Guests won’t find small sample-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner – instead, they have the use of full-size bottles that are installed in the shower.

An artful touch to the water closet is the bookcase wallpaper.

Where’s The Coffee?  The rooms at The Hotel do not have the standard in-room coffeemakers.  Guests who would like a cup have three options:

  1. Visit the full-service Starbucks on the ground floor of the hotel,
  2. Enjoy a cup of complimentary coffee from the coffee bar that is located on the ground floor by the elevators, or
  3. Request to have a Keurig placed in the room.
