We had an amazing getaway at the boutique hotel. The manager Daniella was extremely helpful and friendly. The room was modern and very high tech. To use an iPad for all controls was a first for us. The location couldn't be better, 1 block off of ocean drive. From going to the beach, Lincoln road, ocean drive for dinner and... More

When I booked the hotel it was advertised as having a restaurant and bar with 24 hour room service on both the booking site and the hotel website. Now having stayed I can tell you there is no restaurant or bar. I haven't used the 24 hour room service but without any facilities I didn't see the point. I did... More

We had a great 3-night stay at the Marlin Hotel. The only thing missing was an on-site restaurant and bar. The rooms exceeded our expectations. Our party had a king suite and standard queen. The king suite is a splurge, but exceeds the expectations with tons of space, seating and even a walk-in closet. The standard room is also surprisingly... More

Most hotels are pretty much the same, at least in terms of the basics. You check in, use the bathroom, sleep in the bed and make a cup of coffee in the morning. Of course the quality of hotels vary considerably but not the basics. Until you check in to the Marlin Hotel. First of all the help you get... More

We had been traveling and switching hotels every couple of nights, and we were delighted with The Marlin. Other reviewers mentioned the reception being on the second floor, but there was a desk in the lobby area when we were there, so none of those things were a problem. It was rare that someone wasn't at the desk. We appreciated... More

Great modern hotel with some nice little touches, in a great location. But our last night was spoilt with a party being held at the end of our corridor that went on until the early hours. Miami is full of hotels so finding one that suits you is a bit of a challenge, when we arrived at the hotel late... More

This hotel is very nice and very stylish with very good services. The location is excellent with the beach and all restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are very nice and well kept. The only negative we experienced is the noise of drunks in the middle of the night. This hotel is in the heart of South Beach on Collins... More

My partner and I travel to South Beach every year and we usually stay in a hotel on Ocean and 14th. This year, we decided we were going to try something different and get away from Ocean Dr. Well I have to say, we were thoroughly impressed with the Marlin. When we arrived, we were greeted by Daniela who is... More

I stayed here for 4 days while in Miami on business. The staff were super friendly and responsive to my questions about the area. The rooms are awesome! Nice amount of space, the bathroom shower is to die for! I loved the iPad controls and the huge TV. Bed was very comfortable. The staff ...Alex, Damien and Daniella all made... More

We spent five fabulous nights at the Marlin and were very happy with our decision. Perfect location, just a block from what I consider to be the coolest part of South Beach. Lots of good bars nearby and the staff made some great recommendations for dinner. The rooms were great, I love the iPad controls and the funky lights. everything... More
