I am a Gold Marriott Rewards member and rarely stay at other properties. My job booked a block of rooms here and required that we stay here due to a conference. So glad they did. This place was super nice. The hotel accomodations were nice and swanky. The hotel staff was unbelievabley caring and concered. The doormen where the best. Always willing to give recommnedations on were to eat, drink, and party. The pool and restaruant are on the 16th Floor and this place has the best happy hour I have ever been to. It is a short walk or $5 cab ride to Mary Brickell Village which has all the bars, restaurants, and shopping you could want. Spent many nights there. This hotel is right on the water downtown and is at the start of the Brickell area. I would stay here again most definitely. This place is impressive. can I come back I already miss it.
