My husband & I have been going to Catalina every summer since we were newly weds, (1976 ) and later with are 3 boys, family and friends, (I fell in love with the island as a child when my family would go.) Needless to say I have stayed in just about every kind of rental there is to offer. From private homes in the hills and on the flats, condos, and just about every hotel there is ! Last year we booked late and could not get a house. We got lucky with an availability at the Glenmore. We brought our 3, 20 something sons and got a room with a king size bed, a fold out bed, and a small bedroom with a queen.. Yes it was crowded for the boys, but there was room for a table & chairs,(over looking the happenings on the little street) a fridge, t.v. and a wonderful jacuzzi tub( dont forget the bubbles) The boys had a blast ! It was so fun at bedtime listening to them laugh ! They hadnt slept in the same room since they were kids. The rooms were immaculate, smelled great ( I am really fussy with hotel smells) and the beds were great. We could lie on our beds and see (and hear) the bell tower and beautiful hills. The history of this hotel is fabulous ! Clark Gable & one of his sweeties use to stay in this one particular suite all the time.( We are going to book it in Sept). Glenmore has survived some tough times,and has seen ALOT - so some GREAT stories! Be sure and read up on all of it when you are there . KEEP IN MIND....., it has been renovated and remodeled ! The rooms are bright & adorable, and the staff bends over backwards to get whatever you might want.! Great location too. Right in the middle of things, and close to the water. I would recommend this hotel to ANYONE that doesnt mind stairs. If you know Catalina though, only the newer hotels have elevators. (heard they might be putting one in ? ) We CANT WAIT to go back!
