At The Avalon Hotel, we would be honored to provide special accommodations for the wedding party, a never-to-be-forgotten room for your first night as husband and wife or, in limited circumstances, a dramatic location for your ceremony.

Our roof-top deck offers panoramic views of Avalon Harbor, the quaint city of Avalon and the Island's rugged hillsides.

Our garden courtyard, which features a koi pond, exotic plantings and romantic landscaping, is also available for ceremonies. Both the rooftop deck and the garden courtyard can accommodate 30 people.
