This hotel is very beautiful and surprisingly kid friendly. The welcoming and capable staff made our stay very enjoyable. We stayed in a suite and it was a nice room but not at all worth the $800/night price tag. The suite was really on the small side, no balcony, with only two windows. We have stayed in Marriott suites before and this room did not measure up at all. We would have been better off getting two connecting rooms with balconies.
The location of the hotel is excellent. We took the ferry to Catalina island and the dock was a 5 minute walk from the hotel. The beach is a quick stroll down the hill. The hotel does seem a bit isolated because of it's location perched on a hill.
The hotel seems to host quite a few conventions and weddings but still manages to keep a personal feel. The only parking is valet with a steep price tag of over $30/day.
