Historic Hotel, Family
NUMBER OF ROOMS
We spent our night on Catalina at the Atwater, along with a friend, and it was wonderful. The location in town is very convenient to tours and restaurants; the hotel itself is most handsome, from lobby to guest room. Every staff member was welcoming; seldom have we experienced such a pleasant group of people. Late afternoon wine in the lobby was most appreciated, as was the luggage service to-and-from the wharf to the hotel. Breakfast in the nearby Avalon Grill was quite good, especially for a buffet - even the scrambled eggs were very tasty!
Top drawer hotel in a crowded field of somewhat dumpy old hotels in Avalon. Great front desk, well appointed rooms. Check out the great happy hour. We will defiantly be back to Hotel Atwater. RECOMMENDED!!
This hotel is a wonderful place to relax and unwind! From the excellent service, amenities and renovation it is simply wonderful! The wine reception in the afternoon is a nice touch too! Great location, cozy and super clean.
Perhaps because it was recently renovated (or because we went during low season), but we stayed at a really nice hotel for a very reasonable price. Also, the bellman took our bags from the boat to our door and refused a tip, asking only for us to leave a positive review on TripAdvisor. So here it is!
Upon exiting the boat from Long Beach I saw a young lady, Kimmy, with a sign for Hotel Atwater. We were able to drop our bags with her, and she would get them off to the hotel so we could walk around. We headed straight to the golf cart rentals and explored the island. Not expecting the photos to match the property, upon arrival for check-in, I was very pleasantly surprised. Checkin was smooth, and Kameron was fantastic. She told me about a resort fee, which I was unaware as I booked through Hotels.com. It included 2 breakfasts at a company owned property around the corner, bike rentals and wine social hour among other things like beach towels. Didnt expect to use those, but gladly I did. Included in that the fee was a free tour, worth $20 each to the Avalon Casino. Not only did we enjoy a great glass of wine, thanks again Kimmy, we also enjoyed the use of the bikes. We walked to the Avalon grill for the breakfast buffet and it was terrific. Small portions of eggs and fruit, freshly made and refreshed. Very nice. The room was small but was very nicely updated, the bathroom was way bigger than expected. I was scared to stay in a 100 year old place, but wow they made it feel classy and beautiful! Top notch. The service was also top notch. I cannot express how wonderful, in fact, its as good or better than I have received in 5 star rated resorts. Andrew was also very helpful to ensure we got our bags for our boat ride back to Long Beach. He text me and Kim called as we had not gotten the bags before our 3:50 departure. I had literally just picked them up. It was nice for them to check and for the concern. Talk about service! They really take good care of the guests! Thanks all!…
