“Unbeatable Courtyard if Using Miami Airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2009

This Courtyard has been newly refurbished/rebuilt within the last two to three months. It is absolutely sleek and fresh from top to bottom. We needed to overnight when traveling from Central America to California last week. The hotel is part of what Marriott calls its "campus" of hotels which include a regular Marriott, a Residence Inn, a Fairfield (I believe) and the Courtyard. We paid $120 with tax which we thought was a very reasonable price for such a new and sparkling hotel. There was a Champion's Restaurant on the ground floor which served a great cheeseburger. The check-in team was upbeat and perky. The room was in perfect condition with the exception of the air conditioning system needing some adjustment. We'd stay there in a flash if we need to be in the Miami area again. There is a 20-30minute rotating shuttle service to and from the hotel campus. It would be difficult to find fault with any aspect of this hotel. We booked this room through the Marriott.com web site and chose the senior rate.

We stayed here immediately after the hotel underwent extensive renovations and were very impressed.

The decor of the rooms was very updated and modern but still felt comfortable and were extremely well-appointed. The adjacent hotel (Marriott) had several restaurants as well as a Starbucks while the Courtyard has a bar/restaurant that was quite tasty. (I highly recommend the club sandwich!) The bar was trendy and the waitstaff were friendly and efficient.

The lobby has a "Smart Board" as seen in recent Marriott commercials which was handy to check the weather or sports scores as we were coming and going. The pool opened just a few hours before we checked it out and it was nice. A tad on the small side (is shared by the Courtyard and the adjacent Marriott) and the jacuzzi looked a bit dingy, but the new landscaping and patio area were extremely well-done and inviting.

We also liked the shuttle from the airport and the shuttle to the cruise terminals that were complimenary. The front desk was very courteous and helpful in arranging transportation.

We used the fitness facility which was absolutely top-notch; each bike, treadmill, and cross-trainer had their own personal TV's that you could plug your headphones into which made working out much more enjoyable. There was also fresh fruit, water, and towels available.

As we were heading out from our stay, we ran into J.W. Marriott along with several of his management team who were quite interested in our thoughts on the hotel, which was a nice surprise!

I would recommend this hotel to anyone, without hesitation. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

I I needed a place to stay close to the airport before meeting a friend who was flying into Miami the next day. The Courtyard was fanastic! I booked this particular property because they had a great deal, it was newly renovated and had late-night shuttle running from the airport to the property. The rooms are impeccible - clean and brand-new looking with a modern flare. The workout facility was huge and had great equipment. There is quite a bit of construction close by but I could not hear it indoors. The lobby is also refurbished and the staff was excellent.

I had the pleasure to stay for 6 nights at this hotel and it was great. The place is small but decorated with simplicity and great taste.
The best part was the service, I felt I was in a Marriott JW, they all were so genuine, helpful, nice, Danny and Erika at the front desk were great, the super nice housekeeper (I don't remember her name) taht kept our room fantastic and found all the extra amenities that we asked her for, Sergio form Loss prevention, etc, etc and the entire complex was full of pleasant staff ( the Marriott too) always smiling, caring, I think I have not enough words to describe my experience at that place.
I really want to congratulate all the management team and the workers for giving to the customer that great service that now days is very hard to find.

I'm not sure if I'll go back to Miami but if I do I will definitely stay there.

Never been to Miami before so having the right hotel for the stopover is a must,the courtyard has construction going on but didn't spoil the stay.The service from the front desk was outstanding because we left a bag in the taxi and they tracked it down which was a relief.it has free internet,
You need to get a blue taxi not yellow from the airport.

Stayed for c. twelve hours during a daytime flight layover on Thanksgiving day. So while some facilities were completely shut-down or shared with the Marriott due to the ongoing projects, because of the holiday we were not inconvenienced by any construction noise or disturbance. We got immediate access to the room at 9am, it was fresh and updated with everything in working order, shuttle to and from the airport was prompt. We took the full breakfast buffet at the Marriott, and were pleasantly surprised to find a "construction" discount of 20% on the bill. Staff friendly and competent.

Had 2 stays at this hotel while wating for my flights in and out of Miami. We took a taxi from the airport and arrived at the front desk where we were had an efficient and friendly check in... The hotel is in the middle of renovation as well as the full service Marriott next to it, but as soon as you enter the room you forget all about that. They have just been renovated and the decoration is ecellent very modern, comfortable and clean. It was just what we need for a 12 hour layover and the next day we used the snak area they have in the lobby for breakfast and took the shuttle to the airport which stopped at the Courtyard first and then went to the Marriott to pick up guests.

Overall an excellent stay and highly recommended for a short visit to Miami.
