Our room was at the far end of the hotel, a 2-storey rectangle around a handsome garden of mostly native plants & palms -- but still not noisy. Friendly, most British, concierge and clerk staff; excellent, varied breakfast buffet and attendant-made special coffees such as double latte, espresso, or coffee from thermoses in garden; daily wine and cheese from 4:30...

I chose the Pavilion because it seemed superior to most other places in Avalon, and had a good package with the Catalina Express out of Dana Point. Everything exceeded expectations. The standard king room was spacious, both the sleeping area and the generous bathroom space with plenty of storage. The bed was very comfortable, with high-quality linens and four large,...

What a wonderful place to rest and be pampered. The hotel was lovely and had the feel of what the island must have been like back in Wrigley's day, with all the modern conveniences! The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a treat and the wine and cheese was a great way to meet other guests and wind...

I unfortunately only spent one night at this hotel. Because there isn't that much to do when you have been to the island so many times, I only planned one night. From the minute I entered the property, the front desk staff were wonderful. Kaylie handled my check in and made suggestions as to where to eat and what to...

My family and I just spent the night in Catalina at this hotel. The location is excellent as were the grounds of the hotel. The wine and cheese was a nice touch, too! The rooms are more than adequate, though you don't go to Catalina to spend time inside. Breakfast was much nicer then the typical continental spreads. Get to...

This was a 2 day, mid-week stay in late November. The location of the hotel is perfect - right near the ferry pier and in the center of the harbor at Avalon. We found the rooms to be spacious and comfortable, the staff very accommodating (all of them, but in particular the manager on duty when we arrived, Andrew), and...

My partner and I recently stayed at the Pavilion Hotel on Catalina Island and loved it. The waterfront location is wonderful with spacious rooms looking out to a lovely tropical garden setting.
