I just got back from an great stay at this place. This place is right on the harbor, yet away from the noise that the valley can produce. I have been going to Catalina for the last 20 years and have rented houses in the flats, stayed at the Metropole (would be the equivalent of a suite) and the Inn at Mt. Ada. This place beats the other for the following reasons:
1) Close to the ferry (no taxi or long walk necessary with bags)
2) Best view
3) Modern conveniences
I prefer it over renting in the flats for the amazing view, over Mt. Ada for its more central location/price and Metropole due to the noise/price. A nice plus is there is an elevator. I would definitely recommend this to a friend as it far exceeded expectations.
