This is one of my best vacation so far in 2015, the hotel is a bit pricey but I found my steal from living social app Lol. I got there around 11am which was way too early to check in but to my greatest surprise, I was able to get my room by 12pm instead of 3pm. I couldn't be... 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.

This is a lovely hotel, with great service and easy location. Room/Sundeck: We had a Deluxe Room with a king bed on the fourth floor. It was very clean and the décor is sleek and modern but with beach feel. Nice size for just the two of us. We had a little patio with two chairs and a table overlooking... More

I booked 2 nights at Hotel Metropole for an anniversary/engagement celebration. Rooms are very clean, one of the best hotels in Avalon. The staff was very friendly and even allowed me a later check out time at no extra fee. The only complaint I have about this stay would be that my significant other and I used their public Jacuzzi...

Probably the best massage ver. Very professional, relaxing, quiet. They did exactly what I asked. Nice hotel. We didn't stay overnight but would in future! We spent 8 hours on the island. Truly unique!

We had a beautiful room, fireplace, angled view of beach, champagne delivered to room on our arrival. Out our door to a sunny cozy patio with a generous hot tub and total view of the town. Superior staff, so polite and accommodating! Decent continental breakfast. Restaurants in town...all delicious.

It's not often that I don't have a bad thing to say about a hotel, but I can't think of a bad thing to say about the Metropole. The staff was all very pleasant and helpful, the bed was amazingly comfortable, the room was clean and well appointed, the location is great and the continental breakfast was very good. Our... More

For our anniversary weekend, my husband surprised me with a quickie to Catalina! He booked the "helicopter package" which was perfect for, well, a quickie! The hotel metropole was a great location for the walk to the Descanso beach club and the restaurants etc of Avalon. I highly recommend renting the chaise lounges at the beach club and making that...
