First of all, Catalina is a great getaway and as they say in Real Estate location is key. The Avalon is a great location and has beautiful views. We stayed in Room 301 and the view was spectacular. Although the room is small, the wrap around balcony made it feel much larger. This hotel has an eye for detail. Beautiful woodwork, stained glass, foyer, gardens and Wow views from rooftop deck make this hotel special. Also appreciated were the 350 count sheets, thick towels, bathrobe, and great bath products.The staff is helpful and friendly and made dinner reservations for us at Steve's Steakhouse which was absolutely fabulous. Beautiful views, great food, impeccable service and Steve, the proprietor, makes every effort to make sure your requests are fulfilled. Don't miss Steve's signature dessert, Key Lime Pie, which we took back to our Hotel room balcony and devored while sitting on lounge chairs overlooking the water and nightlife on Avalon. Although this Hotel is not inexpensive, they endeavor to make it a first class operation. Note, however, this hotel does not have an elevator, so if you are on the third floor, be prepared to walk stairs. So, what, get the exercise and an extra portion of Key Lime Pie!
