A New Guest Experience is Coming to Catalina

Named in honor of Helen Atwater Wrigley, wife Philip Knight Wrigley, Hotel Atwater originally opened in 1920, ushering in a new era for Catalina Island as a popular getaway for everyone from Hollywood’s elite to hardworking mainlanders looking to escape their hectic lives.

When it reopens in mid-2019, the newly-renovated hotel will feature a fresh ambiance and modern amenities that are sure to be popular among casual travelers, groups or anyone looking for an exceptional guest experience just a block from the beach in the heart of Avalon.  

One bedroom suites feature king beds, one and a half baths, and a separate living space with seating, bar and desk areas. Some suites offer views of the harbor; others offer mountain views. Standard rooms offer king or queen beds, and separate seating and desk areas.  All rooms are equipped with refrigerators, smart TVs, luxurious linens, high end fixtures and quality finishes throughout.

The hotel’s light and airy lobby offers comfortable seating areas where guests can gather for friendly conversation. An elevator, meeting and event space, and a new dining experience at PKW Eatery + Bar further enhance the guest experience, making Hotel Atwater one of Catalina’s premier hotel destinations.

PKW Eatery + Bar

Located on the ground floor of Hotel Atwater, PKW, which stands for Philip Knight Wrigley, will offer a unique dining experience, with custom décor that gives a nod to Philip’s interest in aviation and his reputation for being a mechanically-minded man who liked to tinker with his cars, boats and other machinery. Communal tables and a “statement” bar will make PKW a favorite Avalon gathering place, where guests can interact over shared plates, world class wines and classic cocktails in a lively, welcoming atmosphere.
