I stayed here for 4 nights for the Miami Boat Show. It was nice to have such a quick trip from the airport to our hotel. The shuttle got here in just 5 minutes or so.

Our crew had rented a couple minivans to transport us all over to the Miami Convention Center and Seaisle Marina. The hotel is right off the highway, so it was easy to hop on and off, to get to our destinations quickly (unless we mis-timed rush hour).

The room was comfortable (I was in a 2 bedroom suite). The kitchenette was a nice feature, and the maid service made sure that our dishes were cleaned in the dishwasher. The free Wifi was speedy and reliable.

The Residence Inn is on a Mariott campus which has 3 hotels, so there were plenty of accommodations on-site. The campus was gated in for safety, though I wouldn't have felt unsafe without it.

This hotel had free hot breakfast, with entree features that changed daily. It also had free suppers 2 or 3 times a week in which you could come down and socialize and network...this is great for business travelers.

Hotel clean and comfortable, free wifi.
Hotel had several nights with free food and drink specials in the lobby. Food and beer were great for the price - Free. Getting into the hotel lot itself was a little challenging as it is located on a corner...looks like you may only be able to enetre coming from one direction. Located on a MArriott "Campus" with two other MArriot propoerties. Able to use facilities ant any of the hotels on campus.

This is well located, and a short stroll across the "campus" brings you to the upscale Marriott, where you can get lunch or supper. Breakfasts at the Res. Inn are copious, and the front-desk staff are friendly and efficient. Rooms are large and comfortable.

The staff was friendly and fun. The rooms were clean and comfortable.
We were able to rent a car and explore from this central location.
Most important to me, I felt safe and comfortable.
I would stay there again.

Room Tip: Nice guest laundry facilities. Great to do some laundry after our cruise.

We booked this hotel for a one-night pre-cruise stay. The trouble we had finding this hotel is what soured me on staying here again. It is just really hard to get to for someone who is not familiar with Miami. The way the streets are set up in this area is just confusing. Our GPS couldn't get us there and the directions on Marriott's site were worthless. I don't know how long we drove around before we finally stopped at one of the nearby hotels to get directions. Aside from that, we had a wonderful stay as usual.

The front desk clerk was friendly and upgraded us to a 2-bedroom at no charge and without me even asking. Our room was clean and our beds were clean, comfortable, and cozy. A welcome sight after our 10+ hour drive to Miami. We had been driving since the night before so promptly laid down for naps. The hotel is really close to everything. We had to get a few last minute items and a CVS and Kmart were within easy driving distance. I really liked that the hotel had a security gate so that not just anyone could get in. I didn't like the $14.99 per night parking fee but that seems to be the norm in Miami. The main street is really busy but the neighborhood around it seems like it's mostly older Cubans. It was a quiet, clean, and neat area. We did not feel unsafe there.

Breakfast the next morning was wonderful and there was a good variety of hot and hearty items along with Continental type breakfast foods. Check out was a breeze and the hotel was an easy drive to the location where we were parking the car. We really enjoyed our brief stay at this hotel and wouldn't mind staying here again. But since we don't travel to Miami often, we're not going to remember how we ended up finding it the first time and I just don't think it's worth spending another hour trying to find it. Then again, who knows? Maybe Marriott will have better directions on their site the next time we decide to travel to Miami.

Upon arrival we were greeted by two very friendly staff at the front desk. The studio room I stayed in was very nice with a separate kitchen and sitting area to work. The bed was comfortable which is very important to me. The location was very convenient to the airport but I question the area since the entire complex was gated. There were two other properties on site which gave us nice dining and drink alternatives. The only negative is the Wifi did not adequately cover my room so I had to use the cable. This limited the area that I could work in. There was WiFi in the public areas which was nice. The free breakfast was one of the better that I've had.

Room Tip: My room was next to the elevators but I didn't hear them at all.
