The Best Ocean View Suites in Catalina Island


Hotel Metropole is located in the city of Avalon in Catalina Island, which though sits just 22 miles off the Los Angeles Coast, is quite far away from the rushing city life. You need to take the Catalina Express from San Pedro or Long beach to reach Catalina Island. High-speed boats transfer passengers to Avalon Harbor in an hour, and run for up to 30 times a day.

The boats offer fast and safe travel, but could become bumpy if the seas are fiery. When there, Hotel Metropole is a 3-minute walk away from the Catalina Island docks, but you can also call a cab if you have a lot of luggage to carry. As Hotel Metropole is one of the best hotels in Catalina Island, offering great facilities and services all the year long, you might need to book your accommodation in advance.

Hotel Metropole Mini Suites

The hotel’s entrance is just up a small hill. Hotel Metropole offers you four mini suites, with excellent views of Avalon Harbor and the deep blue ocean. Even though the rooms overlook the street, you won’t be bothered by any traffic nuisance, as the island has a special name for having the most quite and serene environment.

You could notice many golf carts here, as Catalina Island allows very few traditional cars. You can rent a golf cart for a few hours, if you want to explore the island deeper. However, note that the Avalon town is small, and exploring the whole place is walk-able.

Rooms offered by Hotel Metropole are lovely, with comfortable beds and a romantic fireplace. The rooms have a cocktail table and chairs looking out over the balcony to the ocean. Furthermore, the dark wood flooring add elegant and modern feel to the rooms.

All the four mini suites offer the same view. Second floor of the mini suites have a balcony above, so if you were looking for full sun exposures, try top floor rooms. It is a breathtaking view from the balcony, and the ocean and the street could be enjoyed for hours. In fact, this is one of the best hotel room views available on Avalon.

The bathrooms are spacious with jet tub and separate glass shower equipped with a sliding door with view of the ocean. Hotel Metropole also offers a range of amenities for every room that has ocean views, which could be chosen while you make your reservation.

Hotel Metropole offers exciting packages as well, including helicopter tour, boat tour, and kayaking. Get in touch with the Hotel Metropole reservation desk to book your stay.
