About Glenmore Plaza Hotel, Avalon

Living history in Catalina's grand old home

Avalon's oldie but goodie
Glenmore Plaza Hotel, the second oldest hotel in California, has been hosting Catalina beachgoers since the middle of the last century. You'll find classic style combined with updated convenience only steps from Avalon and Catalina Island's beautiful seashore.

Catalina life is fine
You can learn about island folklore from the knowledgeable guides of Avalon Scenic Tours, or you can book a snorkeling or glass-bottomed boat excursion if more adventurous exploration is your thing. Guests can catch movies at the Avalon Theater and admire its Art Deco murals.

Charm from days long gone
Guestrooms retain cozy, turn-of-the-century charm but were refreshed in summer 2012. Air-conditioned rooms have free WiFi, refrigerators, and flat-screen TVs. Glenmore Plaza offers free coffee, newspapers in the lobby, as well as free breakfast every morning.

Get in a game of golf
Originally designed by Bobby Jones, historic Catalina Island Golf Course is a scenic, 2,100-yard course with 9 challenging holes. The hotel's concierge can help arrange your tee time.

Great place to stay!
Our stay at The Glenmore Plaza Hotel was great! Everything was nice and clean. When we first got to the front desk, no one was there. Funny thing was that the guy at the front counter is also the guy that drives the pickup van lol which I didn’t know about. Just let them know ahead of time and they can pick you up. To be honest, it’s not that far of a walk but if you can’t walk or need help walking that’s a better option for you. All in all, great time and I will visit again.
