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.

Worse management ever seen

This is the 5th time i been here, and the hotel has change to be a bad bad experience, overcharge drinks, to finish with the valet pushing and pushing to pay the valet fee and cash, i have to assume he was going to pocket the money that he confront me on front of hotel treating me on front of everyone, manager was told did nothing a 20 some years old guy who did nothing at all, so if you like to have a nice vacation i recommend to stay away from this hotel by the way is part of southbeach group hotels

Sounds great on paper....

location and quality - great!! However the management allowed a large group of extremely loud, inebriated young people to completely take over the roof top pool, along with a blaring DJ, which rendered it completely useless to anyone except those in the "in crowd." Dance disco Music in lobby is played loud enough to curtail relaxing during the day in the room. Not sure what management is thinking - does catering to an ultra young and loud crown make management sense? We called the front desk and music was turned down but not sure at all why they couldn't at least play something a little more middle of the road. Room was spectacularly CLEAN and lovely

nice digs, questionable concierge and bartender

Overall I had a good experience. The staff was very friendly and personable, especially the doormen. The doormen went out of their way to talk to my sister and I and let us in on all of the best restaurants and clubs frequented by the locals while also securing us free passes and discounts to many of them. They were more helpful than the concierge who never seemed to be at his desk. The rooms were clean, except the bathroom could have used a better scrub. The lobby was a bit dingy and the hallways had a bit of a wet, moldy smell to them, however the finished in each room were lovely, the bamboo pool, rooftop pool, and Zen garden were well maintained. We did have one incident with the staff during their complimentary happy hour where the bartender seemed to deliberately serve only the Caucasian patrons promptly while skipping over all the patrons of color regardless of the fact that they had been waiting to be served way before the Caucasian patrons. Also I had to come down the front desk several times to have my keycard reactivated because the locka on each room door was either not charged or faulty. Overall I had a good time and I would come back as long as they upgraded my room.

The Staycation that felt like a weekend Getaway.

Upon arriving at the hotel I was a little disappointed that they didn't have a parking garage or any type of free guest parking. I had to pay an extra 35 dollars for valet parking overnight. Other then that the room was a little smaller than what it appeared to be in the pictures. After all is said and done though they had great amenities, a roomy shower a comfortable bed And free happy hour to hotel guests from 7 to 8. Me and my wife had fun. My only request is that you guys get softer blankets..those things were stiff as crackers. Thank you for the experience.

Loved it!

Hotel Catalina caters to there guests in every way possible. Open Bar nightly from 7p-8p, rooftop pool (happy hour 12-4p), free taxi rides within south beach, and beach chairs and towels when heading to the beach, which is a block away. Great experience overall.
