Stayed here for our 3 year wedding anniversary. Staff and property were all amazing. Centrally located in the heart of Avalon. The Pavilion sets the bar on Catalina Island. Thanks for all the hospitality!

We stayed one night at the Pavilion hotel. It's smack in the middle of the promenade, which is nice, but of course, just about every hotel in Catalina is centrally located. The beach is right in front of the hotel - a big plus. The hotel may be the only one in Catalina with extensive grounds... Lots of shade, sitting... More

前日夜遅くまで起きていたので、翌朝はゆっくり寝る予定が朝7時に頼んでもないモーニングコールが。。。「Hi, Jennifer! Good morning!」私はジェニファーじゃないし。。。><素敵なホテルも台無しな印象でした。ホテルの立地と雰囲気は最高でした。 I was slept late last nignt, so I wanted to sleep well next morning. BUT!! We had a morning call at 7:00am that we didn't ask them to do it.... 「Hi, Jennifer! Good morning!」 Excuse me, I'm not Jennifer...The location and atmosphere of the hotel was great. Maybe I will stay different hotel next time.

We had a family birthday celebration in Avalon and stayed at the Pavilion for four nights. Everyone raved about the bed linens were luxurious and the beds and pillows were so comfortable. The staff was responsive to our every need and all were welcoming and friendly. We very much enjoyed the breakfasts and wine and cheese receptions and the comfortable... More

We just spent two wonderful nites and were extremely happy with our accommodations. The location is perfect, such a short distance from the ferry dock and close to local restaurants and attractions. The room was on the second floor, recently renovated and very quiet. The bed was very comfortable, the linen and pillows of superior quality. The towels were plush.... More

We had an amazing 2 nights in the Moonstone suite at the Pavilion. The best place to stay in my opinion. The beach, food, bars and anything else Avalon offers was only steps away! Cant wait to return!
