“Downtown Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for two evenings and was really impressed. My room was upgraded to a Junior Suite and man was it nice! I don't think anymore technology treatments were missed. I especially liked the TV behind the bathroom mirror as I was shaving! The house keeping was very thoughtful and the room service was ever so prompt.
Got to experience the meeting room set up as well and this was equally impressive. I would definately recommend this hotel if you have to stay downtown and if you need a space for a meeting.
The check in staff could not have been friendlier either.

Room Tip: Be a Marriot Reward member and the rooms on the north side have the better view.

this is a very nice hotel located a couple of minutes from brickell and next to the harbor so it has ones of the nicest views you can find in a hotel. the bathroom mirrors of the suites have tv's which is a very cool gadget, it also has very big tv's that you won't find in a common hotel(50 inches iirc). on the other hand, the manager of this hotel is one of the nicest persons I've found in a hotel in my life, he's one of those kind persons that always have a smile and a sincere greeting so any fault you could find in the staff is more than compensated for this guy's willing to help and interest in making your stay a formidable one. the only fault I found at this hotel was an uptight waiter in the bistro but the manager of the restaurant, a very polite and kind Colombian, offered us a dinner as a way of making things right which is going the extra mile so big props to him for it. shamefully we couldn't accept his invitation but nevertheless that's the kind of attention to detail that makes a restaurant great. the food was excellent by the way. The hotel charges like 50 dollars for valet parking and that's the only way of parking there so be prepared. the girls at the concierge level are very, very, very kind too so you can be certain that you will feel at home in the lounge.

Room Tip: choose the room with the harbor view, you can see billionaires yachts and some skyscrapers which mak...

This hotel is very nice. It is on the water and has a nice restaurant in the bottom floor. Parking is expensive and internet is not free unless you are an elite rewards member. Otherwise this property is nice and the staff is very accommodating.

I've stayed at most of the Marriott chains in downtown Miami and this is very good. Definite notch up from the downtown JW. The hotel will sneak up on you when you arrive as it is right on the corner of 3rd and Biscayne and the signage is poor. The location is good however as you are 5 minutes from the highway. The finishings are great the bed was super comfortable. The view from the room was great unless you look down and see the foundation under construction next to the hotel. Housekeeping was a bit erratic but the "at your service" desk was on the ball if things were missing or not provided.

As a leisure option I would stay here, for business it would be back to the JW Downtown or the Marriott on Biscayne, which while not great is a reasonable business hotel.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms near the elevator. Great as this hotel is you can hear the hum and whine of the...

This hotel is quite beautiful and our view from the 21st floor was pretty, though somewhat obstructed. Due to the location of this hotel, this view will be as good as it gets I think. The room was quite spacious and beautifully decorated. Everything was spotless. We did use the pool (tough to get sun, again due to the location) which was lovely. Hot tub seemed exceptionally small for a hotel of this size, but since it was slow during our visit this didn't matter. I loved the oversized lounge chairs and read out there for a few hours. The basketball court comes with a hefty price to use, though they did kindly allow my 14 year old son use the court for about 10 minutes without charge. The gym was superb - everything you need is there. We had breakfast at the concierge level and found it to be excellent, though we did have to wait both mornings for coffee to be refilled. The service overall was outstanding. Everyone made you feel welcome and special. My only real complaint was that we were very close to the elevator and the zooming noise all night was a bit much. I would ask for a room further away next time.

Room Tip: Away from the elevators as they make a zooming noise all night

Both the WiFi in the rooms and the gym are included in the cost of the room. The gym was huge with fabulous views of Miami and plenty of equipment. It is open 24 hours.

I have only good things to say about the hotel: My room was very large with a real working desk. The bathroom amenities (shampoo, etc.) were of very good quality. The elevators were incredibly fast. The staff was helpful and efficient.

I would definitely stay here again.
