The hotel is within walking distance of the Catalina Express drop off. It's probably about a five block walk with the last block being uphill. We had no problem walking to it with two large suitcases. The rooms are nice, but dated. They offer coffee from 8-10am, but there is no food except for a vending machine near the elevator. To me that is a big negative, as I enjoy eating breakfast before I get ready to leave the hotel. Also, the Internet is free, but it is painfully slow. The staff was very friendly and the hotel was always clean. We used a Groupon to purchase our stay. If we go again, we will consider staying at the St. Lauren, but will compare it to other hotels first.
