We wanted to celebrate somewhere special for our parents 63rd wedding anniversary, and couldn't have been happier with our selection of the Avalon Hotel. From the wonderful happy hour and continental breakfast on the delightful patio, to the comfy beds and view of the harbor, everything was top notch. Laurie was wonderful, always so very helpful and friendly. The weekend celebration will be a happy memory for years to come.

My Mom & I had a fantastic stay at The Avalon Hotel! From the moment we walked thru the front door to the moment we checked out we received such a warm and welcoming reception from Lori!! Wow!! What an asset she is with incredible hospitality! We were upgraded to room 301 with a wrap around balcony which boasted 180• views of the Ocean and beautiful cliff side homes which resemble Monte Carlo!
The highlight of my stay was feeding the large and incredibly friendly Koi fish which live in the beautiful fountain in the gardens!! What an experience! Thank you Erica for giving me the courage to hand feed the hotels water puppies!
We will be back for sure to enjoy all of the amenities your property has to offer and especially your luxury bath products!

Thank you again! You made our stay extra special!

We stayed at the Avalon on September 24th, 2015. Enjoyed every moment. Room 301. The room itself is beautiful, if not large. But unless it's raining (in Catalina? Uh Uh), you'll be spending most of your time on the incredible balcony. The balcony is the showpiece of this place. It wraps around both sides of the corner room, and has a simply outstanding view of the marina below.
Every staff member we encountered was friendly and sincere. It happened to be our anniversary, and there was a complimentary bottle of red wine waiting for us in our room-- a nice touch that meant a lot to us.

What a great place! It's a very handsome small hotel with beautiful wood banisters and a lovely art collection that lines the walls of the hallways. The breakfast patio has koi fish fountain and the fish are remarkable, we loved watching Laurie feed them. The room is a very comfortable bed with a desk and chair; not a big room, but on Catalina we are always out and about anyway, and still, the large screen tv was great for watching baseball playoffs, lounging around in the cool robe they offer. The bathroom is beautifully tiled and the organic body butter lotion is sumptuous! We used the roof several times, for taking pictures and also relaxing after dinner, it is nicely appointed with chairs and tables and lounge chairs. Housekeeping does a super job, everything spotless. Something really special about the Avalon Hotel is Laurie. Laurie at the front desk acted as concierge on several occasions; we got massages, we took an eco tour, we went parasailing- and she helped us with all of these, pointing us in the right direction and booking our massages for us. She was so great and so kind and a lovely human being that obviously loves her job, the hotel is certainly very lucky to have her. She made our trip to Catalina become a FABULOUS trip to Catalina. We will return next year to the Avalon Hotel and I'm looking forward to it already.

When we got to the Hotel around 11:00AM, the room was ready,and in addition to that, we were upgraded to a beautiful room with a balcony and an awesome view of the harbor. I have traveled a lot and I give this hotel Five stars. The staff was very helpful in every way, especially "Lori" with her beautiful smile made the stay very pleasant . If you go to Avalon I certainly recommend "The Avalon Hotel" you will not regret it. The Hotel is near the restaurants, shopping stores and beach. The breakfast was very pleasant with a nice quiet patio and Koi Pond. Thanks for making it a wonderful experience, we'll be back.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice, but if you want nice views pick room 301
