My boyfriend gave me a trip to Catalina for the weekend as a Xmas present. He chose a weekend in July, flew us over by helicopter and then booked the best room at The Avalon Hotel, 301. It has a wrap around balcony with an amazing view of the harbor and casino. The hotel staff was amazing, helpful and extremely nice. Morning breakfast in the courtyard of on the lighter side, Friday afternoon wine & cheese on the courtyard. Coffee, cookies and drinks all day along available. There is also a roof top deck with lounge chairs and BBQ. Full sun, no need to fight for a space on the small beaches.
Room 301 was a nice size. I did peak into other rooms that seemed much smaller, so I loved our room. They provided wonderful smelling soaps and shampoos in the bathroom. Everything was so clean, neat and warm. We sat out on our balcony to get some sun and enjoy some champagne that the hotel was kind enough to put in our room the first night. Diana was extremely helpful and made sure everything was wonderful. The Innkeeper, Lori, was gracious and just what you would want from a B&B owner.
Loved Catalina. Highly recommend the zipline on the island. Jake and Matt were the best guides. Had a blast and cant wait to return to the island and the Avalon Hotel. We will certainly be back for another adventure.
