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.

Dining

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.

Great place for a girls weekend

We were there for a bachelorette party. The hotel was perfect for the cause - reasonably priced, two pools, free happy hour, just want we needed. However, the service is beyond pathetic! A couple examples - our room didn't have AC (April in Miami) and no one did a thing. I complained 5x and got a fan. The next day when it still wasn't working, I demanded a night free. Service is the restaurants is also awfully slow.

Good Affordable Option

Overall the hotel was nice with great amentities (beach towels, beach chairs, airport shuttle, and daily happy hour). The only negative I would say was the very dark rooms. The red walls and ceiling combined with almost no lights in the room made getting dressed challenging at times.

The dining at Maxine was generally very slow even at breakfast. I would not recommend it unless you have a lot of time.

Catalina Hotel

The hotel stay at the Catalina was not pleasant at all. We origionally booked a room with 2 beds, instead we got stuck with one king size bed. Also there was a leak in the bathroom ceiling and it was disgussting and messy. I would not stay there again.

Great deal. Block away from beach. Walking distance from South Beach. Open bar and free shuttle was great. Staff was really friendly. Food in the restaurant was awesome.

Nicely themed hotel, quick responses

I enjoyed the Ultra weekend festival without going. Room was sizeable, on the corner and had good windows facing outward. Shower was hot and decor made sense.
