The detailed work all over this unique hotel was exquisite! The have fantastic service and comfy rooms - we stayed in 206 which has a nice ocean view and a good sized bathroom. Free wi-fi and breakfast were a plus: breakfast was spartan, but sufficed. Hard boiled eggs, pastries, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea: but you did get to enjoy it...

My husband and I recently visited Catalina for his birthday. Because he did such a great job planning mine, I knew the pressure was on, but since I haven't been to Catalina in years, I did't know where to stay or what to do. After reading some reviews on Tripadvisor, I settled with this hotel, not really knowing what to...

One of our few experiences in the US when we felt like "guests" at a hotel. The staff are extremely attentive, the hotel atmosphere is wonderful, the rooms are perfect and the breakfast in the garden is outstanding. The one and only snag was the bed in our room - kinda broken down in the middle and hard to sleep...

We spent 2 nights at The Avalon and absolutely loved it. Having never been to Catalina before we really didn't know what to expect. This hotel is close to everything. A car is not necessary. Our room was very comfortable. Everyone we met was helpful and friendly. The rooftop terrace was great for late afternoon wine. The Avalon website represents...

This is my new favorite hotel in Avalon. The character it has is so nice. It's makes me feel like I am in the 50s. This hotel is well maintain and I heard it's going to go through a remodel but I hope they don't take away the character. I like looking out the window and see the rooftop where...

I'm delighted that you were pleased with everything. We're all about providing a relaxing environment for our guests, however, I believe you stayed elsewhere in Avalon and not at The Avalon Hotel. We don't have a gentleman from Dublin, we offer our continental breakfast in our garden and we do not have plans of going though a major remodel anytime...

Just visited with my son. From my initial call with Jaime, to our check-out, we felt welcomed and happy we chose the Avalon.
