        We're about a 10 minute walk from Catalina Express terminal. However, you stay includes a taxi voucher from/to the boat. Thank you.

        No. LOTS of stairs. Even from Street to Lobby. Only possible solution is to use the back door and stay on the 1st floor.

        They DO NOT have an elevator. Even getting to the hotel requires steps.
