The Aurora is quiet, thoughtfully designed, and very comfortable. The staff is professional but not pretentious. I placed one call to Diana at the Aurora, within a few moments she arranged boat transport to Avalon, taxi service from the dock to the hotel, and the exact accommodations I wanted. The price she quoted was accurate and inclusive. ( I might... More

Our stay at the Aurora Hotel for our 25th anniversary and JazzTrax Festival was a one-of-a-kind experience. The staff was superior (kudos especially to Diane, Sarah, and Martha) and the room was better than we could have ever anticipated. The pics on the website do not do this hotel the justice it deserves! We will definitely return and tell our... More

We arrived to our hotel at 1130am to drop our luggage off, knowing check-in wasn't til 3. We went to lunch and enjoy the island. Around 2 we returned in hopes our room would possibly be ready. It wasn't. As we waited 45 minutes in the lobby for our room, 2 couples checked in and were taken immediatly taken to... More

Hi ! After years of visiting Catalina and suffering through worn threadbare hotel rooms ...we were really jazzed at the sparkle and beauty of our ocean view room ..We each had a very comfy "temparawsome" bed .. the view of the bay and Avalon below through the glass walled balcony was beautiful day and night.. refreshing to the eyes .......

My husband took me here for our honeymoon (on a budget)! We loved this place! It is so nice, upscale and lovely interior! It is by far the BEST in all of Catalina! It is new, and the decor was posh and cozy. We had the corner unit with a balcony. We could even see the harbor from the balcony.... More

Set a block back from the heart of town, this newer property has the interior finishing details and in room fixtures of a trendy boutique hotel. Including, spa services, unlimited espresso beverages, high speed wifi, their own brand of bath products and tempurpedic beds. Most rooms also have private viewing balconies.

Although we loved the design of the property, the price was way too high for what you get. This property is a cleaned up motel, with some nice design touches. And despite charging us nearly $400 a night, the staff doesn't seem to understand that when you're charging Four Seasons rates, you better offer Four Seasons service. We asked for... More
