Firstly, I had read the mixed reviews and played safe by booking one night only to start. I stayed three, and considered a fourth but moved to Palermo, a great 2hr.40min trip on a luxury bus: a great way to see the island.The hotel is indeed dated, by Sheraton standards, but in regard to price paid, it is a clean, pleasant stay. Front desk staff are very efficient and pleasant, if very busy! Bar staff are very friendly upstairs.
Breakfast could be improved, with more fresh and varied offer. Sparkling wine a nice touch. Shuttle takes you into town free and back(EXCEPT MONDAY!) but there is a "one euro" bus every hour which takes you to the connecting buses/trains. Make sure to take the bus to Taormina and Syracusa..wonderful, highly recommended and a good way to see this amazing island. There is everything you need in the room, and every request was met quickly by pleasant staff. Yes, this is a good choice in Catania as it has a pool (lovely and refreshing after a hot day touring) and a private beach.
