My recent stay at the Marlin Hotel in South Beach, Florida, lived up to and exceeded my expectations. I've had bad experiences with South Beach hotels in the past, not living up to their star rating and online photos. This was not the case with the Marlin Hotel. Upon arrival I was greeted by Ismeris who was friendly and helpful.... More

My boyfriend and I recently traveled to South Beach for our first couples vacation and we were also celebrating both of our birthdays. We checked in 5/31 and checked out 6/4. Every single day of this vacation was filled with tons of happiness and relaxation. Upon walking in we noticed the tons of construction going on the first floor. I... More

We spent a few nights at The Marlin in May and myself and my girlfriend had a fantastic time. The rooms are spacious and ultra modern and the staff are very helpful friendly. The location however is the best feature being one block away from the beach and the famous South Beach bars and restaurants. Every morning we strolled from... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Marlin Hotel for 4 nights. We would definitely stay here again. we loved our room and the staff is very welcoming. They were making some renovations but made sure we were comfortable during our stay. The hotel is very clean and the location is perfect (right by the beach). Even with it being... More

Really glad I chose this hotel out of the many in miami beach, this one is by far the best. The rooms are very modern and clean and nice. The staff are so lovely and are very helpful, and all importantly approachable. The breakfast wasn't a hot cooked buffet but an understated cold buffet of cereals, pastries, ham and cheeses,...

Very good, except hearing the screaming drunk girls at 2am on the side street to washington ave, which you cant really help because its Miami beach. The hotel was smelling great! The front desk was great! The shower in the hotel was immaculate!

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
