The grounds were so nicely landscaped. There were plenty of places to sit and enjoy the view or have a bite to eat. The wine and cheese happy hour as well as the breakfast were enjoyed by everyone. The staff was very attentive and responded promptly whenever needed. Definitely recommend to all travelers for a relaxing time in Catalina.

I am pretty easy-going when it comes to basic accommodations. However for a $1120 stay, I would expect a certain level of privacy, quiet, and more professional environment. When I booked the room I specifically asked the agent for a quiet room. As such, nothing was available to meet my expectations other than book the next upgraded room (Superior King).... More

I did a LOT of research for our Spring Break trip to Catalina for hotels. We are so glad we went with the Pavilion. It's not cheap, but with all the things it comes with it turned out to be a pretty good value. Pluses: 1. If you plan on doing any activities on the island, look into the hotel's... More

Lovely hotel. GREAT staff, very comfortable beds, beautiful courtyard, kept our bags locked up for us after check out until our ferry, water and chocolate turn down, and tasty continental breakfast. Only downside is it seems a tad overpriced.

This hotel has clearly been refurbished to reflect a bit more of an upscale feeling while maintaining a casual hotel atmosphere. The location could not be better, and I was worried about noise, but it was very quiet at night. The staff are friendly, the food was excellent at both the wine hour and breakfast. It was clean (almost too... More

This hotel is right downtown. Steps from mini beach. Perfect location. Everything is quiet and relaxing when you get inside hotel gate. Staff very attentive. Very nice wine and chees each evening. Nice breakfast. Room is small but does not feel cramped. Down comforters and pillows. Bottled water delivered at night.

Upon arriving at the Pavilion Hotel we were greeted warmly and promptly. After checking in and getting our luggage settled (they stored it for us, as we arrived early before our room was ready), the staff wished us a Happy 10th Wedding Anniversary. Once we were able to enter our room, there was a very sweet little note wishing us... More

The room was ready early which makes it so much better! The staff will help with any situation needed including lighting the fire pit early to take the chill off. Everything was clean and comfortable. The bed turn down and different waters provided at night was a real treat. The bag pick-up and return was well handled by a very... More
