The Catalina "One-Star at best"
Date: November 14, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Milford, CT
Just returned from there after staying there this weekend (11/11-11/14/05) after having been reassigned there after our original hotel was decimated by Wilma...however, we'd never recommend this hotel....although the beds were comfortable and the staff friendly, that's about all we can say that's good..we found the place lacking as follows:
1. No towels in room at check-in...we had some in our room the next day when the room was "cleaned" (beds made and bathroom sanitized)..only one washcloth for two people. On the third day when no washcloths were provided we complained to the front desk - never did see the washcloths.
2. When we checked in the person at the desk asked us to give him 10 minutes so he could find us a room away from the noise and music in the lobby - his room assignment was a room 10 feet behind the front desk...and next to the lobby!! (wonder how long they laughed over that one)
3. Bedside clock didn't work.
4. Takes over half an hour to get your car out of their "valet" parking...and when they tell you they'll call you don't believe it - they don't...we finally went to check and there was the car sitting outside..
5. No soap in the bathroom.
6. Small safe is BOLTED to the FLOOR!!...You have to be able to get down to its level to use it!
7. TV only got 5 channels...CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX and UPN.As I said, the staff was nice - every time we voiced the least little problem to them they gave us each two free drink vouchers - we went home with about 20 free drink vouchers. And as with the prior poster from Canada, our floor wasn't washed either - thankfully we didn't use the beach so no beach sand. Bottom line?...it's a good enough place for a party hearty soul to go for fun and a place to crash overnight (i.e. New Year's Eve, graduation party, etc) - but if you've ever stayed in hotels before, you're bound to be disappointed here.

The Catalina "What a dreadful hotel"

Date: November 8, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Barbados
The people of Miami have done a brilliant job of pulling together and welcoming visitors following the hurricane last week. Not so unfortunately the Catalina Hotel! Like many others the room allocated was un-made.
The service on check in was too much of a bother for the 'young ' man on the reception as he had more pressing issues like booking a date with someone. The valet service is great (if you can give 24 hours notice of when you want your car!)honeslty waiting an hour is too much! The bar staff are very pleasent - demanding a tip as 'they work very hard' and ignoring you if you don't leave one every visit to the bar! The rooms are not finished - woodwork is very patchy and dirty. Cupboards are not boxed in floors are dirty. The carpets in the hallway are so dirty its disgusting. They have completed one building but the main bedroom wing leaves a lot to be desired in hygiene and comfort standards.
(the smell of paint makes you vomit!) I would recommend this hotel to anyone with a sadistic streak as the perfect getaway for your most hated enemy!

The Catalina "Would not recommend the Catalina Hotel"

Date: July 28, 2005
Reviewer: Miami Beach 411 User, Ottawa, Ontario
We stayed at the Catalina Hotel July 2-4. At first we were happy with what we saw but then our opinion changed based on the following: 1. There were no bathrobes in our room yet somehow I ended up with a $165 charge that appeared on my credit card 2 days after we'd checked out. This charge has only been explained to me today, July 28th after 4 phone calls asking about it. Last week I was told they would reverse the charge but when I still hadn't seen it, I called back and was told it was for these non-existent bathrobes. Now I have to call back again to try and convince them we didn't get any bathrobes! Not impressed.2. The floor is painted hardwood and was never mopped while we were there. It got pretty dirty and we stopped walking in our bare feet.3. After the room was cleaned, they never left towels. We had to call more than once each day to get them. One time, we actually went to the front desk to get them after waiting for an hour - there were no apologies from them.4. We stayed in the 2nd building and there were some pretty sad-looking parties going on in the lobby (looked like friends of the DJ). The music was as loud as if you were in a nightclub but there were never more than 10-15 people at this *party*. When leaving the hotel, you had to walk through this *crowd* of people.
