    High Expectations, as per the reviews for this hotel, totally not met except by the great staff! Would not recommend this hotel for the price paid. Have never written a poor review, but a flight attendant friend said I owed it to you!

    We're about a 10 minute walk from Catalina Express terminal. However, you stay includes a taxi voucher from/to the boat. Thank you.

    No. LOTS of stairs. Even from Street to Lobby. Only possible solution is to use the back door and stay on the 1st floor.
