Picking a hotel is a tough job! After perusing several hotels on the island of Catalina, I settled on the Avalon hotel and I am certainly glad I did. This little gem is the nos. 1 hotel on the island and although it isn't cheap (its an island so everything is pretty pricey), the service and the attention to detail...

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a wonderful experience! Laurie, Ana and all of the staff were so friendly and accomodating the entire stay; it gave the hotel such a personal feel. All of the amenities were great also (free chocolates each night was such a nice touch!). One of our favorite parts of our stay was having...

With so many choices of hotels in Avalon, I used the reviews from Tripadvisor to help make a decision, and was not disappointed in my choice of the Avalon Hotel. The staff was friendly and engaging from the moment we arrived, and this level of friendliness was consistently carried out throughout our stay. The room was cozy, clean, comfortable, and...

We stayed at The Avalon Hotel and just loved it!! It is in a great location, right next to all of the shops and restaurants. It is beautifully decorated with many luxuries. The hotel is smaller but so personal. The staff was so friendly. We loved Laurie - she was the hostess there and helped us out on anything that...

Hotel Avalon is one of those places where you feel at home by just coming in the door. Great location and very comfortable. Fourth floor roof top is a great place to view all of Avalon. We will be back.

A beautiful place to stay and escape reality for a brief period of time. Tha Avalon staff was very flexible and went above and beyond to meet our comfort & needs. Slightly pricy for the space of the room but overall a wonderful place to stay

My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with a trip to Catalina this past weekend and he could not have chosen a better hotel. From the moment we showed up the staff was all smiles. I have never been to a hotel before where the person that checked you in, was also the person that walked you to your room...

The Avalon Hotel is a craftsman style hotel on the side of the mountain that surrounds the harbor. The majority of the 4,000 year round inhabitants live on this tiny slice of the island. 100 or so live in an isolated harbor on the other side. It is a pricey little island to visit. The hotel's have the advantage on...
