We had a old coil mattress that was super squeaky. I thought we would have tempur pedic mattresses like it said in the room description. Huge deal breaker for me. I need a good nights sleep.
Staff was friendly, great location right in the middle
Parking was $35/day or you could self park two blocks away.
Great location and good deals for the price. Shuttle was horrible because of A/C damage and pick up times because of technical difficulties. The poor driver was doing all of the trips alone. Besides that, the drink special (open bar 7-8) is great
and is a plus in expensive south beach. Concierge was great and accommodating to all needs.
The Catalina Hotel turned out to be a college summer geteway party spot. This is OK if you are a college student, but not necessarily so if you are beyond college age and are simply looking for a nice weekend away from the rat race. Also, I think
this was the first place I've stayed at in years that did not have a coffee maker in the room. It was however clean and pretty comfortable once in the room. The hallway reeked of carpet cleaner.
For the price I paid which was clearly overpriced, and I've stayed in Miami many times; but this was a first for this particular hotel. I've stayed directly acrossed at the Surfcomber and the decor was amazing, staff completely attentive, hotel
was very cleaned, however the Catalina does not live up to the pics posted on site to review images of hotel. Elevator worked only one day, and don't expect requested wake up calls, carpets throughout are nasty and floors seem like it will give way and break, and trust I'm a small frame. Not knowledgeable of hotel requirements or just simply uncaring. NO GOOD, I WILL NOT RETURN HERE>
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Long walk from hotel
Cuban diner on Ocean drive i believe.. incredible food and service.
The hotel was great as far as the room was concerned. However, the parking is terrible. If you are checking in at night and have never been there, it is near impossible to find your way to the valet stand. The staff was courteous and well
mannered. They made sure that our stay was great. The room top deck on the Doorset building is great, and you have a great view of the surrounding areas.
