I just returned from a trip to Catalina with my family and some close friends. Our stay at the Hotel Atwater was very nice. Everyone at the hotel was extremely polite and accommodating and seemed to sincerely appreciate the business. The location is very convenient.
In keeping with some other reviews of this property, the rooms are a bit spartan and only some have been updated, but the beds were comfortable and all the necessary amenities were there. The complimentary morning coffee served in the lobby was actually quite good, and I'm a coffee snob. :-)
The bottom line is that I would stay there again in a heartbeat and came away from the experience relaxed and refreshed. My wife and I travel a lot, both for business and pleasure, and it's rare that a hotel stay is without incident or issue - whether it's the room, the service, the hidden charges, etc. This was one of those rare occasions when I can't think of anything that was amiss.
