My fiance and I spent a wonderful 3 day weekend at The Avalon Hotel. The hotel was within walking distance (3-15 minutes) of everything we wanted to do on the island. Unfortunately, we didn't venture out to the island as much as we wanted because it was hard to get away from the plush and confortable room and it's amazing view (Room 306). We probably spent 3-4 hours a day looking over the pier from our balcony and concluded that it had to be the best spot in Catalina.
BTW.. They had a posturpedic mattress and pillows in our room. Having stayed at many 5star hotels that do/did not offer that before (Palazzo LV, Bellagio, Wynn Resorts, NYC Plaza, 4 seasons everywhere, La Fonda Santa Fe....) it was quite a treat.
Booking the room was incredibly easy. Having never been to Catalina before and being naive to the logistics of getting to island, the hotel's staff answered email fast and arranged transportation from the Long Beach Airport. They could have not made it more easy.
Not only did they offer an incredible place to stay, they pretty much helped plan the vacation.
The Avalon Hotel is the perfect destination for those who want to relax. We will definitely be going back!
