“Excellence in a quick stop”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

In a perfect world we all have friends who live near the airport and are happy to meet us. In the real world we depend on groups like the Marriott to have these needs met, and wow is the bar getting set high! Personable limo drivers, exceptionally friendly front desk staff, seamless check in and happy, quick restaurant staff who delivered very tasty food. The room perfectly prepared with all the possible amenities short of someone to tuck you in. We had only eight hours to lay over in Miami on the way home from our Carribean vacation, and this property worked flawlessly to get that re-vitalizing break and excellent rest that makes a day of battling airports do-able. The staff made us feel like part of the family, and we would certainly not think twice about staying again the next trip through.

Room Tip: Can't say if there would be a difference from one side to the other... we asked for a low rate r...

we stayed for one night on october 1 2013 and had a good stay there, the hotel is adjacent to a marriott and a residence in and has a cuban-american restaurant and a gas station leaving the hotel property, and has a good lunch or dining option across the streat on a seafood restaurant called "catch of the day" where we ordered the tuesday special of 2 maine lobsters for 37 usd, they were wonderful. The hotel shares the outdoor pool with the marriot and i liked its an old pool so it has normal depths of 5.8 ft or so, not like the new ones of 3ft. I would like the hotel had complimentary breakfast but being a courtyard it never does. Overall good quality and stay. We liked the full waling showers, not just a bathtub.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor so u can see the miami downtown skyline.

Thank you for your review of our hotel. I'm glad to hear that you were able to experience a number of the hotel and campus amenities. In addition to our sports bar, Champions, and the restaurant in the Marriott, Cane fire, it is nice to have some local food options near by. Thank you for staying with us. We look forward to welcoming you back.

Recently, after an overnight stay, my wife and I had breakfast at the hotel's restaurant, Champions, which was a disappointment, to say the least. After we ordered the buffet, we only received one cup of coffee apiece and after drinking that had to ask for a carafe which appeared on every other table but ours. I noticed the coffee cup was not clean and at the buffet several of the dishes were not clean either. Further, my wife ordered an omelet which took thirty minutes to arrive after three inquiries as to its whereabouts! When it did come, she didn't have time to eat it since we had to leave to catch our flight. Surely for an airport hotel, where making your flight is crucial, prompt service at the restaurant should be obvious. In all, Champions that morning involved too much offense, scored only this review and lost our business for seasons to come.

So I recently stayed at this hotel from September 27th until September 29th and it was overall good. Definitely pros and cons to this hotel.

Pros- Right off the expressway. Had a restaurant downstairs which is convenient and its open late, food was tasty. The girl at the front desk during check in was great I believe her name was Sam. Free Wifi in the hotel. Room was clean and spacious perfect for short weekends trips or airport layovers. The AC was very COLD.

Cons- One outlet on the nightstand in room 4547 wasn't working. The room doesn't have a mini fridge like other Courtyards I've stayed at. There was a bit of construction on the 5th floor but I cant really hold them entirely accountable for it since they are in the process of making some upgrades. My suggestion might be to try not to book any rooms near remodeling rooms. The guy during checkout was very rude. The restaurant staff was spaced out and unprofessional took forever to take our drink and food orders when the restaurant wasn't even close to being busy. The restaurant manager was even hesitate to sit us down he wasn't really friendly. Parking is ridiculously expensive. The room did not have a safe.

Overall good would stay here again and recommend to others.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask the front desk not to book you in a room that might be close to any remodeling roo...

Hotel was excellent even though the Miami traffic that included construction and detours made it quite difficult to reach this hotel. HOWEVER, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Customer service was excellent and the expected Marriott amenities were available. Front desk personnel provided information on nearby restaurants that they recommend. They discourage patronage to restaurants that distribute flyers under hotel room doors. This customer care was much appreciated.

Room Tip: Double queen rooms are spacious and comfortable and well accommodate three women. Rooms were well li...

A great hotel at a reasonable price specially if you have an early morning flight, or arrive late due to its proximity to the airport. Attentive staff and finally the WiFi works in the rooms. For those who use tablets and dont have USB ports important to have WIFI in the room.

Room Tip: Preferably in the new wing, they are the same but a little bigger.

Just spent one night here but the room was very comfortable and the staff very helpful.
They do have breakfast but there is a charge. The breakfast menu was diverse and the food was very good. The dining room staff was on the ball.
All in all, Great Stay. I will definately stay again.

Room Tip: Try for a room at the end of the hall for a quiet time.
