My daughter (age 23) and I visited Catalina Island in March 2012 and stayed at the Pavilion hotel. The recently remodeled hotel was wonderful...tastefully decorated with comfortable rooms, a lovely courtyard with flowering tropical plants and umbrellas and lounges. It has the perfect location right on the beach and is just a short walk (2 blocks) from the Catalina Express... More

On a whim, I decided to treat my girlfriend to a weekend getaway in celebration of our one year anniversary. After browsing hotels on the internet, the Pavilion Hotel caught my eye as it was directly on the waterfront and walking distance from where the Catalina Express drop-off is. After we disembarked and walked over, they immediately made us comfortable... More

This recently remodeled hotel is like something out of another place and time. This hotel is spotless! The decor is done in a simple style, white linens, dark woven furniture, clean design and open floor plans. The exterior of the hotel houses a courtyard with lounge chairs, tall palms and a fire pit that you can sit around during the... More

We went to Avalon, Catalina Island, CA for Spring break with our son - stayed at Pavilion Hotel and were very pleased! The room was clean, convenient, and the staff was wonderful! We opted to purchase the Ultimate Island Adventure package - worth every penny! Although we didn't have time to go on all of the adventures, the EcoZipline guides... More

We have stayed at this hotel twice now and been extremely impressed on both occasions. The staff is friendly and helpful, the rooms are very comfortable and the location is ideal. Upon arriving on the island, you will be met at the pier by a representative from the hotel who will take your luggage for you. They will stow your... More

The Pavillion Hotel impressed us at every step. The rooms surround a beautiful garden courtyard, a calm sanctuary just steps from the main street. The staff was friendly and efficient, solving a problem with our room one afternoon in minutes. The breakfast buffet serves Starbucks coffee alongside a tasteful assortment of yogurt, fresh fruit, bagels, cereals and juices; and they... More

I had never been to Catalina Island, but I took a chance on this hotel largely because of the good reviews. I was not disappointed; on the contrary I would stay here again and would not hesitate to recommend it to my friends. I stayed overnight here with my daughter and we took advantage of the 4 PM wine and... More

The Pavilion Hotel is an easy 5 or 10 minute walk from the Catalina Express pier. It is located across the street from the harbor, along the crescent that connects the pier with the hotels, restaurants, Casino, and Descanso Beach along the waterfront. The staff is uniformly friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean and comfortable, with down comforters and... More

Good breakfast, great service, great location, rooms are cozy, beautiful courtyard, stayed here with our 3 kids and truly enjoyed ourselves. However, way too much money, but hey it's Catalina. Paid approx $750.00 for 2 nights
