Arriving in Catalina--How to get to Metropole Hotel?

I just booked this hotel for a weekend stay and didn't ask on transportation from the Catalina Express drop off to the hotel. Is it walkable or will we need to get some kind of transportation to the hotel?

Thank-you!

It's a very easy walk to Hotel Metropole from the Express depending on how much luggage you have! If you have heavy suit cases, I would recommend calling a cab once you get off of the boat. You can check with the Express office on the island for the phone number. The cabs usually meet the boats as they arrive so you should be able to find one easily and quickly. We never call; we just go out to the taxi area and wait.

Thanks Martik. We likely will have backpacks for the overnight stay so it sounds like we can just walk to the hotel.

Take a look at the maps available on www.catalina.com. Hotel Metropole is located at the corner of Crescent Ave and Metropole. The Express terminal is located at the end of Crescent. It's not a bad walk, especially if you only have backpacks. The main entrance for the hotel is on East Whitley Avenue. Have fun!
