"."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The Avalon Hotel and Conference Center is a Historic hotel located in downtown Erie across the street from the Children's Theater. I parked in the garage which is on the backside of the hotel and took the elevator to the lobby. Off either end of the lobby is where everything is at. One direction is the meeting space with foyer featuring Grand piano, fountain and small outdoor courtyard with seating; the other direction the Erie Room where Continental Breakfast (included in rate) and Benjamin's Restaurant that serves dinner. Other dining options and bars are also available within walking distance. Hosting an event, not a problem the hotel has a wide variety of menus to select from and up to 1000 guests with their flexible event space. Majority of guest rooms have been recently renovated with new carpeting, furniture and soft goods. This hotel is great while on business or leisure especially family reunions or weddings.

Testimonials: Why use Hotel Planner?

Testimonials icon
"Everything went excellent. I'm really glad I decided to go with both your company and Sierra Suites for accommodations for my wedding. People are now wishing there were more Sierra Suites around. They were even kind enough to offer the discounted rate to those people that weren't sure they'd make to the wedding until after the cutoff date. I have already referred someone to your service for a wedding she's planning in Michigan." R.S. - Parsippany, NY
