Classic South Beach hotel with Beverly Hills Service. Eddy at the front door sweeps you up from curb to room and manages to be there when you need anything. Angie the bar hostess and all the servers at the restaurant are attentive and engaging. No false attitudes. The rooms are well done and our delux king room had a wonderful...

The Catalina is made up of 3 hotels in a row on Collins Ave: The Maxine, The Catalina, and the Dorset. It is THE BEST LOCATION EVER because there is a Sbarro, a Walgreens, a bodega, and a great sandwich/gelato place within a block and a half of the hotel. Plus, the beach is across the street. Beware-global warming or...

We booked this at the last minute through an online booking site since we wanted to spend more time in the Miami Beach area. The price was MUCH cheaper than the boutique hotel at which we had stayed the previous day. When we booked online, the web site said we were staying at the Catalina. We get there are are...

Let me start from the beginning. We had booked at the Riviera South Beach hotel months in adv. They got overbooked and they decided to put us in this dump of a place. The hotel shuttle on our way in was disgusting. It stoked so bad we had to open windows to breathe. Then we were asked to cheek in...

I stayed at the Dorset (Hotel Catalina) for three nights in Feb 2010. It sits just across the street from the Hotel Delano and other 700/night properties. It is a very artsy, hip, place with a European flair. The hotel is divided into the Catalina and the Dorset (two different buildings). The Dorset is an upgrade and is where the...

This hotel reminded me of the industries decribed in the book 'Gomorra.' Customer service is completely lacking, bartenders keep barking at customers to 'remember' them. Staff stated that many had been recently and morale was plummeting. Brunch included many substitutions, like Aunt Jemima syrup instead of honey, raisins instead of cherries as described on the menu...then $6 was charged for...

Very dark hallways, even in the middle of the day. No place for sunglasses! Room was clean, sparsley furnished but quite dark. Lounge stays open until 4 and is very loud. Not impressed with the pools at any of their 3 hotels. Wouldn't even consider using them. Food and drinks more expensive than many places in town. Probably wouldn't stay...
