Staying at the Marriott Villas at Doral was a good choice for us! The area was quite close to all the major highways~Miami and South Beach were 30 minutes away, Fort Lauderdale about 45 minutes, and we ever took a pleasant 3 hour drive to key West! We were minutes from the Miami Airport,though we opted for Fort Lauderdale,minutes from the Marlins' Stadium(hey, they won while we were in attendance!),and minutes from the Miccosaukee Indian Casino Resort. There are a lot of nice restaurants on Doral Blvd, and the Villas are on the Doral Golf Course.
Trump now owns The Doral Resort and Spa across the street, but the Marriot guests have access to the facilities~they even have a free shuttle! We spent a day at the Spa~it was wonderful!
The two bedroom suite we had was in the Reception Building by the pool. It was newly renovated and very nicely appointed. I understand that all of the buildings have now been renovated.
The staff was very friendly and eager to please. We would, without a doubt, stay here again if we were going to Miami
