Stylish South Beach hotel with free happy hour and bustling nightlife

When in South Beach, lounge, dine and cocktail like the locals. The nightlife sizzles at the Catalina Hotel and Beach Club, thanks to two rooftop pools, three bars and two restaurants, including the people-watching hub Maxine's. The Catalina celebrates its boutique style with bold design elements such as stark white seating and linens and sumptuous red walls and lamps. Poolside beds reflect South Beach's quintessential luxurious approach to everyday living.

Highlights
  • Two rooftop pools, three bars and two restaurants, including South Beach favorite Maxine's
  • Free shuttle from Miami International Airport
  • Free happy hour from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
  • VIP passes to South Beach clubs
Rooms

Who says white has to be boring? The hue makes a dramatic statement when paired with red walls or damask-print. Floor-to-ceiling curtains lend softness to the rooms, where Tempur-pedic mattresses, 300-count Belgian sheets and goose down comforters are standard amenities. Space isn't an issue. Each room holds enough square footage to accommodate an in-house masseuse.

Features

 


The hotel hands out VIP passes to the hottest clubs, but the property is a nightlife magnet on its own. Visitors can sample sashimi in Kung-Fu Kitchen & Sushi or mingle with other singles at the rooftop pool. Go ahead: Order a cocktail from the cabana bed.

 

When it's time to catch a flight home, guests can cut their travel time via the free airport shuttle. An in-house system also enables visitors to modify, buy and confirm their flights from the hotel lobby.

Maxine Restaurant & Bar
The Maxine Restaurant at The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club is open and serves breakfast all day long! The Challah bread French toast is already known to be the best on South Beach. Located in our North building the restaurant, caf, and bar is a great place to people watch while enjoying cocktails and delicious treats.
Kung Fu Sushi
Kung Fu Sushi is an eclectic mix of sushi and Asian food with a real kick. The menu ranges from Seabass to Japanese Red Snapper Rolls, and you'll definitely want to cleanse the palate with signature sake cocktails like the Tokyo Rose or Japanese Jade. The delicious and affordable fare is served amidst dcor that is just as impressive. Partnering with famed artist Lebo to showcase his work, this sexy mod-Asian bistro will offer a complete experience for your senses. As the choice of unique establishments offered becomes increasingly limited in Miami Beach, travelers can continue to rely on the South Beach Group as the source for lifestyle hotels and restaurants that are always original and interesting.

Worst 2 days ever in this hotel

No internet service, No coffee maker, No room fridge, No ice machines in the whole building, You have to call the front desk and ask for a bucket of ice which you had to call 3 times to get then they guy that brings it wants a tip. No soda machines. 35.00 per day for parking. This place would be great for a couple of kids down to party but nothing for an adult in Miami to work for 2 days. Horrible experience! They also never cleaned or made up the room.

Not Bad

The hotel actually consists of 2 buildings...one older, one newer. At first they gave us a room in older building but we switched due to air conditioning not working. They switched us to the other building which is much nicer. Rooftop pool is nice and quiet with bar and food. This hotel is not beachfront. You must cross the street and use public beach (1 min walk). Only negative review from me is that we purchased a party package from the girl at the front desk that was supposed to be 2 hours open bar (top-shelf liquor)in hotel lobby, partybus ride to nightclub and free VIP nightclub entrance. Well, top shelf liquor "ran out" after 45 minutes according to bartender. After talking to him a bit further we were told they only had 1 bottle of top shelf vodka...for a group of 20 people for 2 hours(umm, ok). Partybus was fine but we still waited for a bit in line at club. Not too bad, but we did pay a pretty penny per person for this "VIP package". Would stay here again w/o spending money on hotel sponsered outings.

Walk out of hotel and walk right. There is a plaza full of restaurants and shops 2 blocks up on your right. Prices range so it fits every budget.

The Catalina

I was traveling with a girlfriend for a quick and impromptu vacation. We were there to get some sun, rest and relaxation , good food and shopping. We stayed at The Catalina as it had a great location close to the beach and Lincoln square. The hotel staff was exceptional. They were very friendly, attentive and quick to respond to questions. The bell staff was also helpful. [...] assisted us multiple times and deserves a raise! The rooms were clean and neat but a bit small. I would recommend to limit your luggage as space is definitely limited. Did not care for the pool areas so the beach was definitely they place to be.

Amazing location for a nice price

Our stay at the Catalina was quite memorable. It was a beautiful hotel with a few minor defects. For one the "on a budget room" is seemed to be bigger then what it really is. The angles of the pictures taken make the rooms look bigger then what they really are. The free shuttle bus they offer starts at 9am and ends at 11pm so any flight before or after, your required to pay a cab ride that rages anywhere from 30 to 35. On the brightside the rooms although their size they are decorated very nice, the two pools they have are amazing. The location is fairly close to many things including the beach. Catalina hotel and beach club is a nice place to stay on your trip to Miami, just keep inmind that purchasing a bigger room will be all worth the extra charge.

Accomodating, Friendly Service

Hotel was nice and clean. For us it was a place to sleep and get changed to go to the beach (Good location to get to beach and to Lincoln Road - both are easy walking to). The staff was friendly and helpful to us. Took advantage of the happy hour free drinks each night. The resturants at this location have slow service but the food was good. If you want to have convenience to the beach and for walking to the sites this is a good choice for a hotel. There are better hotels but then you will pay much more $$.
