“Excellent location close to everything in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

I dont like staying on Miami Beach. Too many people and prices way too high for what you get. I do like clean, modern hotels with large rooms/suites which is what I found at the Courtyard Coconut Grove. I styaed in 1806 which is a large suite with a gorgeous view of the harbor, sailboats and Key Biscayne. ONLY downside is the VERY small shower which I overcame quickly becasue of the view. Warning: if you are a large person you will not fit in this shower.
the pool and pool deck are great including pleanty of shade if you need it and even a few cabanas. The little bar/restaurant serves great foood/snacks and Starbucks coffee. Valet parking is $25 per night which compared to Miamai Beach hotels is very reasonable. I'm sure you could find beach parking if you wanted to. Also it across the street from Fresh Market so both nights we just got cheese/wine/bread and salads and ate in the room enjoying the view! All the fun Grove restaurants and shops are a short walk or drive around the corner. This is a GREAT place to stay when visiting the Miami area

Room Tip: Top floor and get a suite if you can afford it. Mine with tax was only about $250 per night. Consi...

Great location and excellent value for the price. I would definitely stay again. The bed was very comfortable and while the room was small it was well appointed.
Word of warning, though, the hotel bar/food is very expensive and there is a $24 per night parking fee.

We came into Miami to stay one night before departing on a week-long cruise. Our family with young children was happy with the very super-friendly service, the nice pool, and the availability of good food. If I had one criticism it would be that the mattress on the bed was way too soft, but that is often the case for me in hotels.

The hotel itself is fantastic. It is very clean, has a small but great pool, nice pool deck area, great breakfast but not as close to Coconut grove as you would think. It is a great walk during the day, but it was very scary when the sun goes down to walk. I wish we were given real advice by the staff and warned.

We are located 4 blocks from downtown Coconut Grove, which can be reached by walking down the well lit main street along the bay. We will be sure to train the team to give both sets of directions, with the well lit direction along the main street to be used at night. The back street is shorter but not as well lit.

We stayed in a balcony bay view room. The view from the room was great! However, the room itself was not very large and the bathroom is small with minimal storage space. The rooms overlooking the bay hear alot of noise from the traffic on the main street in front of it, people at the pool, and the many trucks pulling into the Fresh Market. The pool was nice, but no hot tub. The location is excellent for sailing events at Shake-a-Leg, with Monty's Raw Bar, The Chart House and the Fresh Market all very close by. Parking is excessive and a car really isn't needed once you get to the hotel. Downtown Coconut Grove restaurants and the CocoWalk are easily within walking distance of this hotel.

This is a hard review to write because we were very pleased with some aspects of our stay - but less than pleased with other parts.

First, what we liked: Location is great, very close to many restaurants in Coconut Grove. There's a Fresh Market right across the street. We were upgraded to a suite (but, I think many of the rooms are suite-like) and it was an enormous space. Living room, dining room, bedroom, with room to spare. We were on a high floor, with great view of ocean. Service was great. We had a light evening meal at the Bistro Cafe in the lobby and it was good - with awesome service.

There were some less-than-optimal parts to our stay. Parking is $20 a day - pretty expensive for a Courtyard. I gave the room high marks for space. The room gets lower marks for other things. For instance, the bathroom was tiny! I mean it might have been the smallest hotel bathroom I've ever seen in my travels. Door to the bathroom had paint peeling. Door to bathroom also ended about 2 inches above floor - meaning, you could slide your hand under the door. Very strange. Our room had a connecting door to another room. One lock worked...the flip type lock had screw missing and was loose. One more issue with bath - we could hear the entire conversation in the room next to us (while in our room's little tiny bath). I was worried the sound would keep us up, but it didn't.

Would we stay here again? We just don't know. It wasn't bad, but it certainly wasn't the best place we've ever stayed.

My wife and I stayed here during late February on our way down to the Keys. The upper floors provide spectacular views of Biscayne Bay and the Marina across the street. A little pricey (it IS Coconut Grove for pete's sake) priced fairly for the area. Staff was friendly and responsive, room was spacious, modern and clean. Much has been said in other reviews about the comparatively small size of the bathroom but I found it to be fine. Perhaps an extra shelf for personal items would be a plus but I found it to be fine. My wife and I enjoyed the breakfast outside and I have to say that the eggs were some of the best-prepared I've ever had...I wouldn't expect that from a small kitchen like theirs. A typical excellent Marriott experience.

Room Tip: The view from 1705 is fantastic.
