We chose The Avalon Hotel based on the reviews and we were not disappointed. I think someone said that you don't have to have a room with a view because of the rooftop deck view. Believe them. We took a view room, and while lovely, the deck was where we were when we weren't sightseeing or in our room. The room was beautifully appointed (elegant, stylish bathroom), although too narrow to have a seating area, and again, you could sit on the rooftop deck or in the garden. We weren't concerned though, because we were out and about so much. This is an expensive hotel, but worth it. We were treated well, and looked at the experience as a treat, which it was. Many reviews mentioned the lack of an elevator. From what we could tell, there may only be one or two elevators in all of Avalon. We thought going up the main stairway made the stay feel more grand, like you were in a gracious home. Our room was made up immediately and immaculately each day, the hosts were friendly and talkative, Friday night there was a wine tasting, and it's location was so convenient. Everything we did was in walking distance. We will return to The Avalon Hotel if we go back to Catalina. (We stayed in Room 201.)
