The hotel is in a great location and the 2 rooms my party stayed in were apparently newly renovated and quite large. The decor was very modern and both rooms had fireplaces (though it is summer so we didn't use them). The rooms had a small vestibule off the hallway with a locking door so when the outer door was...

I searched through many options as I planned my trip to Catalina. The pictures won me over. The photos made this hotel look sleek, modern and clean. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Upon arrival to Catalina I saw that other hotels had come to pick up their patrons but we had to drag our luggage quite a ways and... More

My girlfriend and I decided to head to Santa Catalina Island for a romantic getaway for our two year anniversary. We decided to spring for the Metropole because of its location and trip advisor reviews. I was not disappointed. The service was awesome. The bell boys were super nice and attentive. The young one, I believe it may have been... More

My husband and I stayed at the facility for a few nights recently. Overall the hotel is nice, the location convenient and the continental breakfast good. But, we had the unfortunate experience of staying in room # 207 our first night. The room itself was nicely remodeled and had a fireplace. But, it is situated over what seems to be... More

Room 321 has the best view of the waterfront by far. We so lucked out. Room has huge tub that has opening so you can look out as you soak. Fireplace and a balcony that we got a lot of use of. I don't like the late check in but it was worth it for the room. We will be... More

We had the corner suite which was airy and spacious. Marble tiles, floor to ceiling french doors that opened onto a veranda overlooking downtown Avalon. The view was spectacular. ..overlooking the Pacific. Not any extras included, but the room was just beautiful...breakfast was self serve..a little so so. We had an outdoor entrance, kept the windows open at night and... More

We walked in without having a reservation. They offered us the Managers rate which was better than booking on any website. Great room with down comforter, fireplace, deep soaking tub, plush robes & slippers, plus continental breakfast. Wow, it's a great location and view will be hard to beat. Even a wonderful hot tub under the stars upon their rooftop,... More

Great location, room, and staff. Pleased with everything. Staff went out of their way to please. Esmeralda made a special effort and arranged to make my birthday extra nice. Thank you Esmeralda for that! We were in room 308, which may have the highest ceilings. Elevators go to the 3rd floor, but I believe stairs are used from 3rd to... More

Great location, fabulous rooms, great staff. Within walking distance of downtown, food, the beach and Casino. Remember to bring wheeled luggage as it is a walk from the boat to the hotel. Have a fun time on Catalina.
