I planned a vacation for my girlfriend on a budget! At first, I planned on taking her to the Ritz Carlton in Philadelphia. However, she wanted to go someplace warm! After looking at all of our options I planned a trip to Miami on a budget! I booked the Catalina Hotel. We used their Transfers to and from the airport. This was included in the hotel fees. Once we arrived we were upgraded to a larger room since it was her Birthday! It was the Rock Star Room! Very Nice, it overlooked the tree lined couertyard between two buildings. It had a small balcony as well. Very quiet! We did walk thru their restaurant to get to the elevator to get to our room. We thought it was super cool. The first night we used Tyrelle to book their party bus to Set Club. It was a fixed price per person and included all we could drink for two hours (Great Bartenders Adrian and Chloe!) and VIP entrance to the club. We had a great time! We could walk back to the Hotel as well. The next morning we used the Hotel Bikes to travel the streets of Miami. The bikes were included as well. We found a small boutique hotel The Berkeley. Which had a small Beach Cafe outside and had brunch outside for under $35.00!
We went to the roof top pool for Happy Hour which was included in price of hotel.
The hotel has outside seating to hang out. We enjoyed chilling outside, while I enjoyed a Stoogey. We Ordered a Pizza from Groovey's $14.00 with the works and chilled in the room the rest of the evening! The bedding in the room was super comfortable as well!
We used the bikes the next day as well as the beach chairs also included by the hotel!
The last day we were able to store our luggage so we could enjoy our last day in South Beach! Overall, I'd recommand Catalina Hotel to anyone traveling to Miami! Happy Birthday Baby!
