I was looking for a quick relaxing vacation out of the city for my sweetie and me. One of our must go places was Catalina island so I looked up and compare a number of places. What I like about the Avalon was the smaller hotel idea and great packages. The package included a great view on the top floor,...

The Avalon hotel is the place to stay when you are in Catalina. It is a beautiful, upscale, boutique hotel. When I am on vacation, I want to feel pampered. The Avalon delivers a sense of elegance and relaxation that I appreciate. We are looking forward to our next trip back.

Every year, we "gift" our parents with an experience as their Christmas gift. Upon their suggestion of a family trip to Catalina, we researched places to stay on the island for our group of 14. What a find! Between us, we reserved 6 rooms...ocean views, connecting balconies, wine and cheese on the patio, breakfast on the patio and relaxtion on...

The location, property and staff were excellent. My only complaint concerned the bed - queen size and both wife and I thought it was extremely uncomfortable - as were the pillows. We were in 201 which has a decent size patio and great views. The amenities were great and the continental breakfast served on the very attractive ground floor patio...

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences. Glad to hear you had a great trip, but sorry you did not enjoy our Supplepedic mattresses. Many people enjoy memory-foam, but I apologize that it did not suit you and your wife. For safety reasons we have had to eliminate umbrellas on the roof-top deck. Happy travels,

From the moment we arrived to the breakfast buffet experience and the inherent charm of the building, we highly recommend this hotel. The staff were pleasant to a fault and there were always cookies around. What more could you ask for! While the room was cozy, the balcony on the 2nd floor made up for it. The next time we...

I recently stayed for 1 night at the Avalon Hotel with my boyfriend. We had a wonderful experience! We were greeted by Laurie, the inn keeper, who was so friendly and helpful.

The Avalon hotel is one of the best hotels in Catalina if you want a nice view,nice staff and a good place to sleep. It does not serve an extensive breakfast so it is better to go out for food. It has a nice bathroom and a nice tv and you can rent DVDs. The front desk can call cabs...
