Hotel Metropole Avalon Reviews
Paradise Found! Mar 27, 2009
Without a doubt, one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. The room featured an ocean view and was elegantly appointed. Certainly not inexpensive (around $400 a night on the weekends), it is definitely worth it if you are looking for a romantic get away on Catalina. The jacuzzi tub and fireplace were amazing! I will admit we did not take advantage of the on site amentities but we thoroughly enjoyed the room and the accompanying views. Breakfast was included and we came back to our room to watch the sunrise while enjoying our bagels and coffee.
The hotel is located right in the middle of Avalon, very close to the casino and the downtown areas. The location is definitely great and the place was very quiet from what we noted. There are less expensive rooms but we were looking for the ultimate in romantic rooms and it seems we found it!
The one downside was the elevator was not working while we were there which meant hauling luggage up and down the stairs. No shuttle service to the dock either. Normally that would not be a big deal as the walk is not that far but we had a bunch of stuff with us, making it a bit of a daunting task to get back.
Overall, I doubt you will find a better room on the island, especially with the views, and perfect location. I recommend booking early as almost everything on the island was sold out 4 weeks ahead of time and it's not even peak season yet!
