As with a lot of our trips these days we found the Marlin on TA, I was looking for a central South Beach location but just far enough away from the noise of the nightlife on Ocean Dr. The Marlin was in a perfect spot on the corner of 12th & Collins, built in 1939, we learnt, it was renovated...

I had a wonderful stay at the Marlin Hotel…. The hotel is VERY close to the beach and many restaurants, one of its great features are the use of an ipad which can control the room (Television, Room Temp, Lighting -mood and regular) without having to get up #PARADISE. Upon arrival someone is there to open the door and greet... More

I have been to the Satai last month, Marlin has nothing to be ashamed for!! It has its unique atmosphere created by the amazing interior decoration (kind of art deco and eclectic ). The rooms are great, space, smart electricity, large LCD, Hi-Fi. Breakfast in a box to the room. Many parking options. Right off Ocean drive, in a great... More

I had a really pleasant stay in this hotel. The location is perfect (really close to Ocean Drive), the staff is friendly and helpful (especially Ismeris) and the room is modern, clean and comfortable. I recommend 100% this hotel and for sure I am going to stay there again my next time in Miami.

Every day we waiting an umbrella 30 minutes, after that we going to staff and take them by ourselves. All another things are good. Good rooms, good services, good ocean, and good beach. There is a build a tower near the hotel - very loudly on the beach all day.

We arranged at the last minute to spend the last few days of our holiday in Miami Beach, and were really late booking our room. I found Marlin hotel at Booking.com and booked one of their spare rooms. When we arrived, quite late after driving all the way from St. Augustine to Miami, we were upgraded to the largest room,...

You can use it to access the internet for free. The service I received when I arrived was lovely, friendly, professional and helpful. I was checked in... More

As locals, we avoid drinking and driving. Decided to stay here over night to hit a concert and party sobe style. Wish we stayed longer!! Staff is awesome. Rooms are cozy and wicked high tech. Love rap and met Pharrell Williams and Pusha T on way to the club. Epic night- we'll be back!
