Overall, I was disappointed with our stay. I will try another hotel next time I come to Catalina. Pros: Centrally located; recently renovated, very comfortable bed, gas fireplace was a nice cozy touch on a cold, windy afternoon. Large, zero entry shower with dual shower heads was a pleasant experience. Very nice toiletries provided. We enjoyed the rooftop hot tub...

Made a caramel delivery to Steve's Steakhouse (don't miss) and decided to make a weekend trip out of it. We usually stay at the Pavilion, but got a great deal for the Hotel Metropole on Travelzoo. Absolutely LOVED the place! Great location on the beachfront, lovely little shops and a to die for coffee shop on sight at the marketplace....

I stayed overnight here for a work trip and overall it was a great place to stay. It is in a great location, close to all of the shops and restaurants, and on the end of the street closer to the casino. The only bummer was there was no restaurant/bar... Other than that, I would have given 5 stars.

Wow, what an incredible place to stay while in the magical town of Avalon. We had a beautiful room right across the way from the beach, with amazing harbor views from our balcony. The bed was huge and comfortable, the furniture was great, the jacuzzi/tub was so relaxing, and the decor was modern and chic. The staff was really nice...

Hotel Metropole overall, is a nice hotel. It is a good location across from the waterfront and at the edge of the main mall area. However, there are a few things that could use adjusting for a much better guest experience. Arrival: The front desk clerk was ok, but not exactly the friendliest compared to others that have greeted us...

We reserved a 'partial ocean view' room for our Anniversary in November 2016. We were given room 407 which was above Whittley Avenue facing North. Our view was of the Casino and a bit of the harbor. There are nicer rooms facing the harbor with probably a 'full view' but they are right next to the busy Cresent Avenue (main...

This is a boutique style hotel with lovely and comfortable guest rooms. My room had a fireplace and adjustable A/C-heating unit mounted on the wall as well as really effective black-out curtains. Be careful if you have kids and want to open the windows; there are no screens and no safety bars. This is one of the few hotels in...

“Coffee table was peeling and didn't fit with the niceness of the room, Outside deck chairs uneven resulting in rocking unless wedged with something to even out. For the cost we expected a coffee maker in the room. With an injured foot it was difficult to get to lobby for coffee. On a positive note the staff was superb and very helpful and courteous.”
