The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club

1732 Collins Ave. (17th St.) Miami Beach FL

Hip hotel complex with hot vibe, cool décor and beach party atmosphere (minus the beach).

While its name suggests that this complex of three renovated Art Deco hotels is located on the beach, it is actually, as its budget prices suggest, across Collins Avenue from this uptown Sobe strip's ultra-upscale oceanfront hotels. But the "beach club" does provide Catalina guests free lounge chairs and towels at the 18th Street beach access path. And the tropically landscaped on-property pool area --- complete with waterfall, meditation garden, tiki bar and, for a surcharge, cabana spa (with in-house masseuse and beauticians) --- is so much fun that guests may not even be motivated to cross the street, especially not after indulging at the complimentary nightly cocktail hour. Other freebies include airport shuttle and VIP club passes. Rooms, especially the cheaper ones, are quite small. But the décor is striking: glazed white walls with bits of vibrant scarlet color for contrast. Dining options include Kung Fu Kitchen & Sushi and Maxine Restaurant at The Catalina Hotel & Beach Club. Since some of South Beach's hottest clubs are in a three-block radius, the predominantly young clientele at this hotel doesn't spend much time sleeping.
