“Awesome!!”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

Awesome hotel. Me and my crew -6 adults ages 25-27- stayed in a 2queen room with a pull out couch. Lots of room for all of us. Beds were amazing!! Lots of outlets for all phone chargers. 2 mirrors and a full length mirror for the closet!! Elevators a little slow. Rooftop pool was beautiful but closes at 11p

Walking distance to all that happens on Ocean. Beach was amazing. Make sure to reserve bananna boat or jet skis ahead of time because theyre not always available for a walk up. Rented bed and umbrella for the day for around $50 bucks...not bad because we split it 6ways.

Lots of great food in Miami...make sure to try the Cuban place Havana 1957? Best food ever and the waiter was the best!! We went 2 days in a row...Cheeseburger Baby across from hotel has the best french fries. Theres a teriyaki chicken place a block from hotel that is cheap, delicious and gives lots of food. A fried chicken place two blocks from hotel tat serves cajun chicken strips...yum!!

We booked this hotel because we were only staying on South Beach for a couple of nights and by the standards of South Beach hotels, it's very reasonable. Parents traveling with children, be advised - There is a strip club directly across the street and there's a video playing outside 24-hours a day of, uh, dancers.

More troubling for me - there's a nightclub next door, so I'd awake at 3 a.m. to a throbbing base coming from next door. I mentioned this to the folks at the front desk when I checked out. They were very apologetic, and of course would have moved us to a higher floor if we had asked. But you get lazy once you check in and get your stuff scattered about, and the rest of my family managed to sleep through it.

The staff was very nice. I was surprised that there was a charge for breakfast in the lobby. One gets so used to free breakfast in these types of places. As noted below, the valet parking is $28/day, so it adds up once you add tips for the valets.

We had a one-bedroom suite and it was by no means spacious. It's a city hotel though, so I guess that is to be expected.

Thank you for your feedback. We have resolved the issue with the club next door by issuing noise citations. We have not received a noise complaint from the club in over two months. Thank you for the compliments to our staff and we hope that you will continue to choose Marriott when you travel. Thanks again.

Best,

Nothing fancy but a nice clean hotel perfectly located 2 blocks from Espanola Way, Lincoln Mall and the beach. Nice rooftop pool. Would stay here again.

Everyone on staff was very friendly and helpful, especially Joe at the front desk. I did not consider this hotel overpriced when you compare it to others in the area. Right in the middle of all the action, it was not a "party" hotel so you could actually sleep at night. Very clean and the roof top pool was great. This is where we will stay in the future.

Nice clean modern hotel. Good location to be based in for short stay as we were. Breakfast lovely. Staff extremely helpful. Only criticism would be that it is very overpriced but mst hotels are in Miami. Great beach front/poolside bar with fairly priced drinks and snacks. Amazing view from hotel room.

Room Tip: Ask for room with sea view - magnificent!!

Room was small but clean so good enough for one night.
We took the airport flyer for $2.35 exact fare each and got off
at the Lincoln Road and Washington stop which is only a couple
of blocks from the hotel -- in fact we could see the side of the hotel
when we got off the bus.
The hotel is in an excellent location as the beach, Espanola Way, Ocean
Drive and Lincoln Road Mall are within walking distance.
Walls are thin so you can hear people in the next room talking. Luckily
they weren't up all night partying since they had to get up early the next
morning. I know this since we heard their cell phone go off with a
rooster crow at 7 a.m.!
The message light on our room phone kept flashing but we were unable
to retrieve the message. The front desk was less than helpful saying the
outside phone company would have to be contacted. Fortunately the
message was just a "hello" from family back home and nothing urgent as
we found out later.
I would try to find a better hotel the next time we visit Miami.

We decided to take a chance and try this Marriott property, rather than our normal Marriott South Beach. This was not nearly as good for our standards. The only good things were, nice central location for shopping and walking. Also, nice rooftop pool was fun. But, room wise we didn't get our expected upgrade, we are Gold Elite, and had to change rooms. Front desk was poorly managed. Lacked the upbeat and energetic attitude we come to anticipate and expect from any Marriott. After all, it is your first impression... Anyway, also had a coffee maker that failed to work properly with the supplied stuff. Asked for it to be checked and nobody followed-up. Sink was badly cracked in our first room. We had expected to be saving some money with the option of this Courtyard and still getting relatively the same level of amenities, but, next time we'll be back to the South Beach Marriott.

Room Tip: Make sure to request a top floor for views, otherwise, it won't be good.
