I stayed here about a year ago with a few of my girlfriends for my bachelorette party and I only have wonderful things to say about the Catalina hotel and it's staff!
I read the other reviews and can see where they would be upset. I do recommend booking a room NOT in the main center building unless you are in Miami to be loud, rowdy, and awake at odd hours. We stayed in the building to the north and have zero noise/privacy complaints.
The rooftop pool was a hit with us! Perfect Miami weather, the water was the perfect temperature, and he drinks were poured strong. There is always something going on in Miami and this is a nice little escape from the crowds at Nikki Beach or off Ocean Drive.
I cannot speak more highly of the concierge! Tyrell was personable, professional, and offered out the best suggestions as to where we should spend our time that weekend. He made it easy to have fun that weekend with little planning on our part.
Use the complimentary transportation! It's there, it's free, and it beats getting stuck in a cab with smells of last nights passengers lingering in the seats.
I would recommend the Catalina and will definitely consider staying here again if ever in the area!
