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.

Miami beach was awesome !!.. but not his hotel.

The only thing that is good in this hotel is the location. (Near the beach, ocean Dr, Lincoln rd.) Otherwise it is not an 4 star hotel at all. The staff does not have any clientele service skills, they do not give you the right information and they are not welcoming at all !!

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.

Overpriced, not as advertised

The rooms were much worse than they seemed from the photos. The doors on our closet were even missing. (And my sister's room smelled like an ashtray.) The keys for the room kept getting deactivated and we kept having to get them replaced. The safe didn't work. The bellman who was supposed to take our bags up to the room just left them sitting on the street unattended. Eventually a nice guy at the front desk helped us with them because he couldn't find the bellman. They jacked up their prices for New Years and let me tell you it was NOT worth it.

Not a 4 star hotel, don't stay here!

This hotel is awful and I have no idea how it can be regarded to anyone as a 4 star property. The hotel is very small and is on a small lot that does not even have a driveway. Rooms are super small and the shower and bathroom are super small. I was traveling alone and felt like I needed more space. Reasons not to stay at Catalina: 1. Rooms smell like mildew. 2. A/C units are very loud and will wake you up throughout the night. 3. Walls are paper thin and you will hear every sound, every door in the hallway slam, and noises from other rooms. 4. Dark rooms with only a few small lamps with 25 watt bulbs. A dark room hides a lot of rough edges in the room where maintenance is lacking.

Not good at all!!!!

This was not my first time in Miami i previously stayed at the Chesterfield and Hotel Nash... This by far was the worst hotel. Lets start: 1st off the lighting sucks in the hallways. Very dark 2nd: My girlfriend fell in the shower. Hurt herself pretty bad. Very slippery no grip in the shower. Small bathroom cut myself with the mirror in the shower while getting up from the toilet. 3rd: The room was Small small small..... the absolute worst placement of shelves bed everything.. Who ever designed this room should get shot. i stay in room 219.... 4th: The TV was basically placed in the ceiling of the room. I have no idea why but my neck is still killing me... It was just a bad experience overall Do not choose this hotel!!!

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.

The Worst

The hotel advertise balcony/patio, it was only big enough to put your feet on. it was like a ledge with bars to hold on to. The lobby smelled like sewerd and the hotel staff/room service barely speak english. I didnt like my experience at all not for the price they are charging. The only good thing was that it is walking distance to the beach

Catalina Hotel

Checked in - got stuck in elevator = between floors- kept ringing alarm NO one came- after 8 minutes we called the front desk. Beds uncomfortable practically laying on the floor. Hotel colors are RED- red everywhere.RED Shag carpeting! Low ceilings, low lighting probably so you can't see. After spending 1 nite we asked for our money back-but pay for the 1 nite stay- they said we had to contact the 3rd party. Still waiting for a money return- booked across the street for $40 more per nite at a beautiful hotel
