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.

MIAMI HOTEL

Worst hotel experience in 40 years of travel. Hotel had RAP band in reception area so staff could not hear to check us in. Crowd for concert blocked entry, normal walking, rooms were poorly lit, only one electrical outlet, closet had no lighting, faced a vacant bldg. boarded up with pigeon infestatation. Staff tried to overcome Spring break congestion, but were simply not in-charge of their property on 3-12-11, day of our arrival. THE WORST WAS POOR HALL LIGHTING CREATING FEAR OF SECURITY AND NEARLY $300 A NIGHT FOR THE ABOVE...........[...]

South Beach charm

Hotel has been remodeled nicely, rooms are clean, comfortable and hotel amenities exceed traveler's expectations: two free lounge chars on the beach, free beach towels, free bikes, laptops and free alcohol from 7-8pm. You can use any of the 8 properties owned by the same company. Beware of the food "specials" or other "freebies", always read the fine print. There is ALWAYS a catch in South Beach. In addition, the 16-19% tip is already included in your bill, so pay attention when tipping! Hotel staff was very helpful, upbeat, accommodating and always available to assist.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

South Beach "happy hour" always has a catch, beware. Our average "happy" bill was $80 and that is with one drink per person. I'm a West Coast guy and our happy hour in prices and value beats South Beach hands down! Lincoln Road has many cheaper places than South Beach. There are many other restaurants in Miami Beach or North Miami Beach, a short bus ride north of the hotel.

Catalina Miami Beach

Stayed at Catalina for a long weekend... great pool areas & loved the free happy hour! the restaurants on site were really nice. The air went out once during our stay, and the room was small, but clean. I thought it was somewhat odd they gave us a $50 room upgrade without asking, however - everyone at the hotel was more than accomodating. It was my first trip to South Beach, and I would definitely stay here again!

Unbeatable value for the price

This was a great hotel for the price. During our 4- day stay, the staff were friendly, efficient and always helpful. The use of two pools was a bonus. A short walk to the beach, Lincoln Mall Rd, shoppping, dining, Espanola St made it the perfect location. The complimentary airport shuttle service & happy hour just added to the value! The only small issue was the air conditioning in our room was too cold (no controls in the room) but this was later rectified.

Great time!

Great hotel for the price! Staff was very polite and helpful with everything. Received a nice upgraded room in the 'Maxine building'. The amenities are worth the reservation: FREE airport shuttle, beach chairs and towels, etc.. (the free drink special wasn't that great-only well liquor/cola; no beer or wine, etc) Rooftop pool very relaxing with cabanas. Nice restaurants (we ate at both) The Asian restaurant has a great happy hour for drinks and food. On the North end of night life so a little walking is involved depending on where you want to go. Only complaint: our room looked over the pool and at 7:00AM a worker ran a blower for an hour or so (could have used the extra rest : ) Overall: very pleasurable, historic old hotel (with updated rooms) but that makes South Beach interesting!

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Short walk to liquor/drug store. Get drinks and snacks for the room as they are very expensive at the pool/bar etc...
