This was our first visit to Avalon so chose Hotel Catalina strictly on availability and Tripadvisor. What a nice surprise. The property is actually two separate sections, each with it's own front desk although both accommodate the entire property. We asked about an upgrade with an ocean view. The front desk clerk was happy to take us up to show us an optional suite before we committed to anything. We ended up with room 506 in what I think was the garden wing. The suite included a full kitchen, separate living room and bedroom with a large widescreen TV in both rooms. We had our own private entrance from the street with our own deck and amazing view of the harbor and the Casino. The front desk was always helpful and accomodating. Everything was clean and neat that the location was perfect. There are lots of choices of hotels in Avalon and we considered ourselves very lucky!
