This review applies only to the courtyard building of the Hotel Catalina which is actually a separate building just down the hill from the main building, Each room may be different in so be sure to check out with questions. We did and got exactly what we requested.
1 - We were on the first floor with a room that faced a nice small courtyard. The setting was very quiet and almost secluded. The room and courtyard were quite clean.
2- This building is slightly off the main street and rooms are inside so we had no traffic noise .
3- The first and second floor of the building can be reached without a flight of stairs which we appreciated after walking in town . be sure to ask about stairs in any Avalon hotel if this is an issue for you.
4 Distances are short in avalon so its an easy walk from the boat landing with rolling bags to the hotel even though it is on the far end from the docks.
5- The room was decent size and larger than rooms at some of the other hotels we checked out when we were there. Many lights in the room , even ceiling spotlight to read in bed from.
6 The bathroom layout was nice a sink and a makeup area and a large jacuzzi tub nice tile floor, Plenty of lighting here as well.
7 The hotel was right across the street from a nice coffee house which we liked because we enjoy espresso and pastry in the am.
8 - Furnishings are in a retro style, the bed was comfy and the air and ceiling fan worked quietly.
The hotel served its purpose. I personally liked the courtyard to sit out in after our day and before we walked to dinner.
