Catalina Island’s brand new Pavilion Hotel (which opened May 14) is offering guests complimentary use of iPads to access the Internet and their morning newspaper during their stay.

Guests will have at their fingertips free, instant access to the weather, their favorite newspapers, personal email, restaurant menus, information on Island tours and attractions, and live web cams all while relaxing in the new outdoor lounge or the indoor “library.”

The Pavilion Hotel is a 71-room, two-story; upscale hotel just 14 steps away from the beach. The design combines mid-century style with modern luxury and features a private outdoor living area for most of the ground level rooms, lush garden courtyard. Catalina Island is just 22 miles from Los Angeles.
