Our reservation was at the full-service Miami Airport Marriott next door on the same campus, but we arrived there to discover they were oversold and had booked us into the Courtyard instead. The front desk attendant at the Courtyard was much more sympathetic than the Marriott's had been, and she succeeded in calming me down from the state of righteous indignation I'd whipped myself into by the time we'd schlepped our bags over to the Courtyard. Selling points included the fact that the in-room internet is free at the Courtyard but not at the full-service Marriott, and the Courtyard rooms have been more recently renovated. She also upgraded us at no additional charge to a PURE room, which sounded fabulous until I discovered it simply meant it was hypoallergenic; since neither of us has any allergies, this wasn't much of a bonus.
In any case, our room was clean and comfortable; nothing fancy, and not particularly spacious, but perfectly adequate for a layover. I didn't have the best sleep ever, finding the pillows too small, but the mattress was comfortable enough.
Having stayed in November at the Residence Inn on the same Marriott campus, I'd recommend the Residence Inn over the Courtyard unless you find an offer giving a significant price advantage to the latter. The decor in our Residence Inn room was less basic than at the Courtyard, the bed more comfortable, and we found it very handy having the kitchen in the former.
