A great get away. The room was very nice with a view of the harbor. The staff were excellent. Very helpful and informative about things to do around the island. Will be returning in about a month for another week-end visit. Would recommend it to anyone.

Just went on my annual Birthday trip to Catalina and since this year my birthday fell upon Mother's day weekend, hotels were hard to come by and many had jacked-up their rates quite highly. I had just about given up hope to go this year, heaven forbid two years from now when my birthday actually falls on Mother's Day. However...

We chose Edgewater from the web knowing little about it other than that it is waterfront. We nearly missed it walking down the street and in fact, did walk by it before we saw the awning. Walked up to the second floor. They got us right in even though it was 11 a.m. We had one of two waterfront suites...

Greetings from The Edgewater! Thank you for your kind words! The panoramic views from our ocean view suites are amazing and hard to beat! Perhaps on your next visit you would like to try Suite One. It has a slightly different layout than Suite Two but the exact same view. Traveling with a group? Book both as these rooms have...

This hotel is perfectly located on the beach front. Great view from the balcony! There is a karaoke bar on the ground floor which might get very loud at night. The room was pretty clean apart from some hair found on pillow case of one of the pillows ☹️ Overall is good and convenient location.

We have visited this historic hotel several times, & would not think of staying anywhere else on our next visit.
