“Watch for getting ripped off on the rate quoted and what they charge you - seemed fishy.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2011

Requested a day rate as I had a few hours to kill before a late afternoon meeting nearby. The front desk clerk quoted me a rate of half the full day rate. I agreed and checked in. When leaving the hotel a few hours later, I was informed that I would need to pay the full day rate. After trying to reason with the clerk, the imbecile Operations Director further refused to honor the rate I had been quoted. The clerk then changed his story to say that the rate he offered me was only "conditional" on the managers approval (probably fearing he was going to be fired). What a joke. For a rate difference of $60 he allowed me to leave the hotel seething and for sure never coming back. What a pity as it was very convenient to a place I will need to visit frequently, but fortunately there are plenty of others to choose from at the same price....

Clean, friendly staff and the usual good Marriott Quality. I chose this hotel for the shuttle from the airport and the proximity to the Dadeland Mall. There are also other name brands around, such as Target, Best Buy etc.
The walk to the mall is quite a bit though. I could not be bothered with their shuttle schedule (every hours or so) so I walked. Even though I love walking, I took a taxi a few times when my feet were killing me. I would have loved for them to have more frequent shuttle service to the mall. I had stayed at Marriott Dolphin before, and would choose that one next time due to the walking to the mall situation. The Marriott Dolphin is on the parking lot of the Dolphin mall.

Stayed there for biz. Only Valet parking what makes it a bit expensive but other than that it's a nice place to stay. Close to many restaurants and a nice mall in walking distance. The staff was just terrific at this place. Breakfast buffet was normal standard. Very close to the public train system.

My friends and I stayed here because it was central to the golf courses that we play and within walking distance of a Publix grocery and several restaurants. Rooms were quiet. The hotel is spotless, nearly new and staffed by friendly people. No on site parking, valet only at $11/day, but they delivered the car quickly to the front door and the car can be retrieved multiple times with no additional fee (tip of course). Breakfast buffet was $10 and worth the price. Exercise room was small as was the hot tub, but these are minor issues. We look forward to staying there again.

Stayed 4 nights with my wife and our 2-year old daughter.

First and foremost, the staff were very pleasant, gracious, and accommodating. I asked one of the housekeepers for an extra bottle of shampoo, and when she saw that I was staying there with my daughter, she promtly loaded me up with shampoos, soaps, lotions, and even a few extra towels. Very nice!

The parking situation is a bit laughable at times; just be aware that you're pretty much stuck with the valet parking prices, and thanks to the VERY limited availability, you'll be leaving your car in a jumbled mess, near the hotel's entrance if you return late in the evening. The parking attendants were very good about explaining the situation, though. I understand the area, and the fact that their hands were tied. Hey, what can ya do? They clear the cars as soon as space became available, so no complaints.

The hotel itself was fine. Clean and spacious common areas, Small and efficient excercise room and pool.

The property is situated across the street from a Publix grocery store, which was big, clean, and seemed to cater to the residents of the surrounding high-rise condos.

A tip: SKIP THE HOTEL BREAKFAST.
The Publix offers a variety of fresh pastries, a sit-down cafe', deli, and even a little booth which sells some great -tasting (and REALLY CHEAP) Cuban coffee.

The hotel is about a block away from SW 88th St. which offers a variety of dining and shopping options, including the HUGE MALL.

The rooms were clean and well appointed. The bathroom was spacious, with enough vanity/counter space to accommodate my wife's seemingly endless amount of cosmetics.

Though we did not have much of a view from our room, aside from the Publix parking lot, we were able to focus more on what was happening inside the room. Which we truly enjoyed.

Let's get something straight:

This is NOT a resort. What you're paying for is the convenient location. The pool is small, as is the exercise room, which in my opion, are just fine.

If you're looking for a clean, conveniently located, and spacious place to use as a base while you explore Miami, you can't go wrong here.

It's not the Ritz, but the staff, clean spaces, and location made our stay very enjoyable. Kudos!!

Nice decor, big room and bathroom. Comfy bed. Free shuttle service to the airport was great.
Only negatives, walls seemed a little thin (either that or our neighbor was just loud at times). Overall the place was very clean, but I did see a couple of small ants in the bathroom. Vallet service also took some time.
