I had a conference at the start of week and completely forgot about memorial vacation- Booked last minute Hotel Metropole in Catalina. No clue about where it was- next day when I showed up stress lifted and I was in Heaven on vacation. The beds were comfortable, the hotel was quiet for a mid day nap, roof top deck Jacuzzi...

Loved their suites! We were in room 321 and it was directly across the Avalon bay. Loved the view every morning. We were surprised by a bottle of complimentary champagne and breakfast every morning. The staff were helpful and accommodating. The only drawback was the bathroom had a sliding window for the jacuzzi to open up to the room.

I have stayed at he Metropole many, man6 times over the last 30 years. Its a family traditon in our family. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and nicely appointed with large flatscreen TVs , etc. The thing that may standout the most about the Metropole is the very real and friendly staff. These are not some kind of corporate...

My husband surprised me this weekend by taking me to Catalina Island. He booked a romantic getaway for the two of us and booked us a great room at the Hotel Metropole. We arrived before their guaranteed check in time and the friendly front desk girl said our room was ready and checked us in. Upon entering the room we...

This will be our 2nd time staying at the Hotel Metropole in July. It is a fantastic hotel! Accommodations are amazing and everything you'd except in a hotel. Very clean, bed is incredibly, room has enough room to spread out, and very family friendly! Staff are extremely helpful, they offer suggestions on things to do, let you know what's happening...

Booked the trip on a whim. Just got back yesterday. Hotel Metropole is the spot to stay. Great room, everything was new and up to date. Roof top jacuzzi over looking the water was a plus! Everybody was really nice. We didn't ask for much but when we did the staff was on it. My boyfriend went fishing I got...

I wish there was a rating worse than Terrible for this dishonest, insulting, and non accomodating hotel. After reading other reviews on here where the hotel manager "catalinagregg" responds to reviews insinuating that the guests were not being completely truthful I have attached pictures so caatalinagregg and everyone else who reads this review will know who is telling the truth...

“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.”
