Great new hotel in Catalina, was able to get a last min reservation and they were nice enough to not require a 2 night stay.
Its on the far side of the main downtown strip about block up, but was a very easy walk with our luggage. The block uphill is a little bit of a workout but nothing that bad. If you got large heavy bags that don't roll i would recommend a taxi.
Very close to everything you would want to be too, plus by being slightly up the hill there is not a lot of night time noise.
The basic rooms are on the smaller size but that isn't too surprising for the island. They gave us a tour of the larger suits which are very very nice if one wants to splurge. All the rooms are very modern and very nice and clean. The bed was very comfortable, lines very soft, and loved the bath products. Bathroom is small and only had a shower, no tub, the larger suits have tubes, but again not a huge issue. bathroom was very nice overall.
Bottle water was free, and they had a small snack area in the lobby.
Did not get a chance to see the roof top deck.
This place is only a month or 2 old, so try to visit it before others find out about it. Price was cheaper then many other hotels that i had called.
