Our family loved the convenient acccess to the Edgewater Hotel, as it was only a short walk from the Catalina Flyer, and is located in a terrific, central location right on the main street of Avalon. We enjoyed walking and hiking from the hotel, with no need for other transportation. We were right in the center of shopping, restaurants, the beach, pier and harbor as soon as we came down the stairway from the Hotel to the boardwalk. The famous Casino was only a short walk, and the Botanic Gardens and Wrigley Memorial were a beautiful, easy hike from the Hotel. It was fun to be in the center of the action, and then go up the stairs to a serene and extremely comfortable environment. The view of the stunnng Harbor from the front rooms of the Hotel is magnificent. The retreat areas, elegant decor, and fountains outside some of the rooms added to the pleasant and relaxing feel. I especially loved the stunning photographs, by the talented Brittani Brisacher, that grace the hallway, showing different scenes of the Island. The continental breakfast and kitchen area certainly added to our convenience and comfort, as we had access to them during the whole stay. The friendly staff were available to give us suggestions and answer questions about activities on the Island, and their pride in their Hotel and the Island were evident. What a great place to be in an Island paradise so close to the mainland!
