My husband and I came to Catalina to have a mini vacation before moving from OC to Seattle. We took helicopters in and back to the mainland, but when we arrived we were greeted with a smile! Everyone was wonderful, helpful, and eager to make our vacation special. We loved the location and feel of the resort. They are right...

For her 80th birthday, I surprised my aunt with an overnight trip to Catalina Island. I am from the East Coast, so I relied on my fellow TripAdvisors for advice ... so glad I did. The Pavilion Hotel was just perfect for us! Walking distance from the pier and right in the heart of Avalon. The staff is wonderful ......

The Pavilion Hotel is perfectly located in the shopping area of Avalon and very close to the ferry terminal. The room was a little dated but very clean and comfortable. Staff were fabulous and the continental breakfast was good. Management kindly provided wine and cheese get-togethers in the evenings. Catalina Island is charming and walkable - everything is close by...

My husband and I were married on the island 13 years ago. We love to come to the Pavilion. It became a tradition of ours. Last year I was 7 months pregnant but we came anyway. It started when we checked in. It turns out that they had us down for a room with two full sized beds. We asked...

The Pavillon Hotel is the first hotel you come to as you leave the Ferry Area and right on the Street where the majority of resturants and stores are located. We were surprised that every day we were there a cruise boat off loaded people at 10:00 am and they went back to the boat at 3-4:00pm. It was easy...

We popped over for a one night quick visit. Pavilion is close to the ferry, easy walking distance with luggage. Warm welcome and easy check-in. The reception was able to arrange two trips of the island that was very convenient. Room was clean and comfortable. Wi-Fi no problem, that's a big plus. The cheese and wine made for a comfortable...

The rooms are small but comfortable. The beautiful scenery, hot breakfast served every morning, and wine tasting daily makes up for the small rooms. Excellent customer service from Josh ( the front desk), Silva (housekeeper), and Jocelyn (assisted during breakfast and wine tasting). These three staff provided over and beyond customer service, friendly and accommodating. When I provided the manager...

I chose the Pavilion because it seemed superior to most other places in Avalon, and had a good package with the Catalina Express out of Dana Point. Everything exceeded expectations. The standard king room was spacious, both the sleeping area and the generous bathroom space with plenty of storage. The bed was very comfortable, with high-quality linens and four large,...
