I had a wonderful 4 day vacation at Miami South Beach. The Marlin Hotel was the perfect choice. It's one block from the beach and all the Ocean Drive restaurants. I was also a block from hot yoga, nail and spa salons and only 15 minutes from the MIA airport. The hotel managers, Daniella and Jeff were so welcoming and... More

This hotel has a nice location with nearby public beach access. The lobby is welcoming and the rooms nicely appointed. This is a great example of a boutique Miami Beach hotel. Unfortunately, the hotel suffers some inconsistencies that prevent me from giving it the 4 that it should earn. My behind the mirror TV was broken and the standard flat... More

The hotel is in the art deco district and is a renovated older building. The rooms are spacious and super modern, you get a mini ipad to control everything inside the room. The breakfast is included and is good. It is a boutique hotel and they don’t have a lot of staff, but they do their best to help you.... More

One thing I want to point out is this hotel is literally steps away from the beach. It's a great location if you just want to walk up to the sand. Another plus is they provide you with one free parking stop. SO GREAT! Two things did throw me off a little bit. One, the room we stayed in could... More

I stayed at the Marlin hotel some weeks ago. The service was amazing and everyone was nice from the moment I walked in. The rooms are very modern, clean and you are taken care of at all times. Definitively recommend it for anyone that wants to have a nice time near to the beach, collins avenue and restaurants. Perfect stay!

Stayed one night on vacation around midnight the iPad stopped working for the rest of our stay and so did everything the IPad controlled and in the morning around 9:00 am when the staff return because they don't work overnight only a security guard that doesn't know much I was told nothing they could do. BE CAREFUL

The hotel is simply amazing, cozy, clean, modern and I loved that you could control lights, music and everything through a personal iPad!! Location is unbeatable, few blocks from Lincoln Ave and very close to the beach (SoBe). Despite it's centric location, the hotel wasn't noisy at all!! I'll definetly recommend it and visit it again!

I loved this hotel. It was very clean and modern. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The location can’t be beat. There is a Starbucks less than a block away, one of my guilty pleasures. I was most impressed with the technology offered. You control everything with an ipad. I especially liked the Foli app, it provided a full... More
