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.

Short vacation

The hotel was not what we were expecting. We had a small room for 3 girls. Very small. Very unorganized place. The drinks from happy hour wasn't great at all. The food was too expensive. It was just a horrible experience all together. Wouldn't go back.

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.

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.

good enough

This hotel had a lot of good points. It was well located, clean and the staff was nice. The first room we got smelled like disinfectant, and upon request, we were given another room, which was great, but right next to the lobby and the lobby bar, with loud music and louder drunk people until early morning hours, which was kind of annoying. Not all the bartenders are good.

great location, subpar hotel

Hotel definitely needs a new plumbing. They don't provide enough toiletries and replenish them, which they don't do. No room service, the food can be ordered at the restaurant next door, but you have to get it yourself.

amazing weekend getaway

Fantastic service and great attention. I was skeptical because some reviews say they have loud music and they couldn't sleep but thats not true. You can't heard any nose ti guys it also depends which part of the hotel you stay in but I was on the first level and didn't hear any noise. The room was very clean no roaches no stains absolutely clean. Can't complain, great price and good location.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

If you rent a car the valet parking is pretty expensive. About 2 blocks down from the hotel there is a parking lot and its so much cheaper definitely park there. It's on 16st between Collins and Washington.
