The Pavillon Hotel is the first hotel you come to as you leave the Ferry Area and right on the Street where the majority of resturants and stores are located. We were surprised that every day we were there a cruise boat off loaded people at 10:00 am and they went back to the boat at 3-4:00pm. It was easy...

We popped over for a one night quick visit. Pavilion is close to the ferry, easy walking distance with luggage. Warm welcome and easy check-in. The reception was able to arrange two trips of the island that was very convenient. Room was clean and comfortable. Wi-Fi no problem, that's a big plus. The cheese and wine made for a comfortable...

The rooms are small but comfortable. The beautiful scenery, hot breakfast served every morning, and wine tasting daily makes up for the small rooms. Excellent customer service from Josh ( the front desk), Silva (housekeeper), and Jocelyn (assisted during breakfast and wine tasting). These three staff provided over and beyond customer service, friendly and accommodating. When I provided the manager...

Our room was at the far end of the hotel, a 2-storey rectangle around a handsome garden of mostly native plants & palms -- but still not noisy. Friendly, most British, concierge and clerk staff; excellent, varied breakfast buffet and attendant-made special coffees such as double latte, espresso, or coffee from thermoses in garden; daily wine and cheese from 4:30...

I chose the Pavilion because it seemed superior to most other places in Avalon, and had a good package with the Catalina Express out of Dana Point. Everything exceeded expectations. The standard king room was spacious, both the sleeping area and the generous bathroom space with plenty of storage. The bed was very comfortable, with high-quality linens and four large,...

What a wonderful place to rest and be pampered. The hotel was lovely and had the feel of what the island must have been like back in Wrigley's day, with all the modern conveniences! The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a treat and the wine and cheese was a great way to meet other guests and wind...

I unfortunately only spent one night at this hotel. Because there isn't that much to do when you have been to the island so many times, I only planned one night. From the minute I entered the property, the front desk staff were wonderful. Kaylie handled my check in and made suggestions as to where to eat and what to...

My family and I just spent the night in Catalina at this hotel. The location is excellent as were the grounds of the hotel. The wine and cheese was a nice touch, too! The rooms are more than adequate, though you don't go to Catalina to spend time inside. Breakfast was much nicer then the typical continental spreads. Get to...

This was a 2 day, mid-week stay in late November. The location of the hotel is perfect - right near the ferry pier and in the center of the harbor at Avalon.
