would highly recommend upgrading to a better room if you decide to stay here. We picked the economy option--how much time are you really going to spend in your room, anyway?--and were a bit sorry about it. Hardly enough space to walk inside the room, and the bathroom was, no joke, the smallest I've ever seen. (And I'm including European bathrooms in this measure.) You could hardly turn around in the shower. Dirty linoleum floors, no hairdryer. I will say that the staff seemed fine and the free wifi (albeit slow free wifi) was a nice perk. None of the options on Catalina are great, but I think paying an extra $20 a night would have made this one more livable. Or you could just do what this one guy in front of us did and demand a room upgrade without paying for it. Lolz. No, seriously. Don't ever do that.
