Stayed there for 10 days in December 2014, during ArtBasel. Since we were working we asked for a quiet room, and GOT one. 3rd floor, Maxine's, very quiet.
We ate at Maxine's every morning, and most evenings, great food, no matter your preference you will find something you like, the menu is very extensive, and not expensive.
Please, remember that Catalina consists of 3 buildings, and though you check in at the Catalina proper you could stay in any of the three. They are all great!
The hotel is perfectly located, near the convention center, close to the beach, short walk from Ocean Dr. and short walk from Lincoln. All a big plus since driving and especially parking in the area is a nightmare.
The staff at the Maxine's are friendly, and want to be helpful as much as possible, in busy times however, be armed with patience, things take time. if I was on holiday, I probably wouldn't notice.
if you have a busy day ahead and would like to get going, please, allow yourself extra 15-20 minutes at breakfast, you will have a better day! ;-)
The restaurant at Maxine's is open 24h, so if you work late, or arrive late from a night out, there is always good food waiting for you, right where you are staying, which we considered a great plus!
We worked on our last day, needed a late check-out, while the staff couldn't wrap their head around it, (and we booked it that way through expedia, but it got lost in translation somehow) after a word with Sal, things were set up perfectly. if you have a problem, go see Sal, the man has a solution.
Also the restaurant has nightly live music at dinner time, perfect, calm, jazzy, bossa, acoustic, ;-)
Rooms are clean and spacious enough, but don't expect too much, didn't spend much time in the room except for sleeping so loved it. Good shower, hot water took its time arriving at certain times of the day, but again, patience, and starting the sink tap first speeds up the process.
