Catalina Hotel: Avoid the Catalina like the plague   1-Star rating

It is currently 1am and I have at least two more hours to write bad reviews of this place because I’m unlikely to get ANY sleep before 3am. What their web site refers to as “a DJ spinning tunes in the lounge” is actually an extremely loud sound system that goes through to rooms. It is loud enough to drown out my television.

This is only the latest in a long string of disappointments and appalling behavior from this hotel. While the room is comfortable and beds are good, this is not nearly enough to make up for the clueless, belligerent staff, the reputation they have achieved for adding bogus items to the bill, and the noisy rooms. I would sleep on the beach rather than stay here, except for the fact that the beach is filthy and the weather is oppressively humid.

Avoid the Catalina like the plague. If you don’t want to believe just me, read the other reviews. I wish I had done that before accepting this as a place to stay.

Catalina Hotel is located at 1732 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, FL 33139.

"Avoid the Catalina like the plague"

Adam, maybe you should avoid Miami like the plague, we don’t need tourists like you. Our beaches are not filthy at all, it seems you haven’t traveled out of North America a lot. I’ve never been a guest at the Catalina so I can’t talk, but if you have something bad to say about our city please write a separate review in the future. By the way, I’m pretty sure people who know the city they’re visiting and stying at will enjoy the music the DJ spins at the lounge… in the lounge! That’s the SoBe spirit!
