Lovely hotel, one of the nicest on the island. Staff very accommodating with tours and taxi's service. Great location, a short walk to all nice restaurants. Very comfortable, pretty, rooms and grounds. Great hotel for relaxing with a glass of wine by the fire pit. We would definitely stay here again.

Great staff, beautiful grounds, locals are helpful, restaurants and shops right outside of hotel. So close to beach! Went snorkeling at lover's cove and it was fantastic! Ferry to and from island was easy and simple.

Pavilion Hotel is a terrific hotel to use as a base for a trip to Catalina Island. It's conveniently located right on the waterfront but has the look and privacy of a tropical garden! It's pricey but worth the money and works for either a couples get-away or a family trip. The staff is excellent.

Just getting to the Pavilion Lodge on Catalina Island is an absolute adventure. You can take the Catalina Express (Just a little over an hour) or Island Express Helicopters (15 minutes). Both leave from Long Beach or San Pedro. The Pavilion Lodge has been around from many years and has undergone several transformations in that time. You are greeted by... More

This is really a nice Hotel. I would say the location in Avalon is great but the town is so small just about everything from everywhere is close. The staff is exceptional, the wine in the evening is not from a box and the grounds a stunning. The Hotel is old and has been added onto over the years but... More

PROS 1. Our standard double room (two double beds) room was very comfortable, quiet (toward the back), and nicely appointed. 2.The breakfast in the morning was very tasty and, like the wine and cheese hour in the evening, was composed of high quality ingredients. 3.The settings and quality of the property had the look and feel of a very nice...

We were on Catalina Island for two days in early May and stayed at the Pavilion Hotel. We had a wonderful visit and could not have been happier with our accommodations. The hotel was perfect for us! It was very clean and comfortable, and we especially enjoyed the evening wine and cheese gatherings. We sat by the fire and enjoyed... More

The pavilion is absolutely amazing. Everyone on staff provides excellent service I wouldn't say anywhere else. Steps away from the beach. I loved there morning breakfast and wine and cheese in the afternoon I would recommend this hotel to everyone who is coming down to Catalina

During my first visit to Catalina Island, I had the pleasure of staying at the Pavilion Hotel. I was told that the rooms and surrounding grounds had undergone a recent renovation, and it seemed as if the paint had yet to dry on the work. The room was extremely clean, well appointed, and came with everything an island visitor could... More
