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.

Birthday trip

The hotel shuttle was a bit late to get me from the airport but that's not a big deal. Upon arrival the front desk allowed me early check in. Everything was up to par. From the staff to the room. What stood out was the premier location. Near the beach and centralized!

Great place for young people

Awsome hotel location, room, drinks and food. The only problem is the US$ 35,00 per night vallet parking.

Nightlife tip: Short walk from hotel

A lot of nightclubs around. The concierge has options with drinks and transportation to nightclubs for a reasonable price.

Catalina Average

The hotel was located in a perfect location in South Beach. Even though construction was going on (never mention until I arrived) it was ok if your looking for place just to pout your bags. The beaches are amazing, the beach club is great and food was excellent. Even though the staff was nice, the concierge by the name of Tyrell was outstanding.

Nice location, great value

Had an overall nice experience at this hotel. The room was clean and decent. The location is great as well - it is a walking distance to the beach and the shopping and dining spots on Lincoln and Washington Avenues.

Good for one night

Stayed here my last night in Miami. Good for one night, not much space. I had to call down 4 times just to get ice which took 3 hours to get delivered.

Great Location, Great Room, Great Staff

I am a big traveler and admittedly a bit more mature but young at heart. So when I find a hotel with a great staff, that is pretty, clean and in a good location I want to go back. Now is it 5 star no but they have 5 star people qualities. First they are all very nice, second the room is updated and spacious, third the team is helpful and the restaurants and bars are open all night. This hotel is close to the larger properties so you can take advantage of their restaurants, bars, pools etc for a fee of course but that is a plus for me or you can eat at the restaurants at the hotel which are very good. The location is in a more sophisticated section but their is still a great vibe and did I mention free happy hour from 7-8 as well as free shuttle service. Stay their and you will be happy in SOBE!

Nice hotel except for random mini bar charge

Stayed here 1 night in June 2014. Giving them a more negative review than I originally planned because they charged my credit card for taking food from their mini bar which I never touched. Other than charging me for items I didn't buy, the hotel is decent. The rooms were clean and nice. The beds were good too. I could have done without the thin bathroom walls that allow you to hear into the next door bathroom. I could hear everything my neighbors were saying (and doing). The happy hour is good - a lot of the hotel guests were in the bar/lobby area taking advantage of the "free" drinks (free if you don't count the $15 resort fee you have to pay). It's a good way to socialize with other guests if you want. Because of things like the happy hour, this hotel is ideal for travelers in their 20s and 30s. Other amenities that I liked: They have bicycles you can borrow staring at 10 am. The hotel is conveniently located. It's very close to the Lincoln Mall and the beach is basically across the street. Because of its great location, parking sucks (but that's true of all hotels in the area). If you want to park at the hotel, you will be charged $35. I didn't find any other alternatives, but maybe I didnt look hard enough. I didn't see any public parking garages that were chaper for overnight parking and street parking was limited to 3 hours (it may be different after a certain time, but I never actually found an open spot to check)
