Catalina Island’s Glenmore Plaza Hotel is Catalina Island’s most established hotel. We are located on the beach in the heart of Avalon. While the hotel still retains its Victorian Charm, all of our suites and many of our rooms were recently renovated to provide our guest with the most modern comforts available.
