My husband and I haven't been to Catalina in about 10 years so we were due for a visit. I checked trip advisor and discovered that The Avalon Hotel was number one. After reading all the reviews and calling for a reservation we decided on room 205. Although 205 didn't have a balcony it was less expensive, a slightly larger room and quieter. One of the best things about this hotel is that just about everything is included which is unusually nice. Included in the price was bottled water, a in room coffee machine, wifi, complimentary wine and cheese on Friday night, continental breakfast every morning and great products in the bathroom. They also offered free taxi to the hotel from the boat (although it was so nice out we walked instead!). Room 205 was very comfortable, nice king bed, refrigerator, microwave, flat screen tv, nice towels, ceramic mugs for coffee, glass wine and drinking glasses....nice. Our room had a sliding door over looking the patio and the sound of the fountain in the courtyard. We did hear a little noise from the room above us (#305) but nothing too extreme. The rooftop patio was gorgeous and it helped that the weather was so nice. The courtyard, where the breakfast is served and the Friday night wine is served was also very lovely. There is a little bit of a climb up the street from the boardwalk, and then a row of stairs to the main level so keep that in mind if you have trouble climbing. All in all a great visit. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others and would stay here next time.
