On the boardwalk, central to everything. We celebrate my father's birthday every year, he's been coming to Catalina since he was 10, and this last trip we decided to stay at Pavilion because he just turned 95 and couldn't get around as well. The rooms...More

The Pavilion Hotel is located right in on the harbor front of Avalon in the pedestrian zone. It simply does not get better for a short term visit to Avalon! Rooms are smallish but functional and look out onto a very nice internal shaded garden...More

Hotel staff did not know much about the island, area, or activities. It was obvious the staff had not spent any time exploring the island and suggested only activities operated under the same ownership as the hotel, which also cost additional fees. The reception desk...More
