When we first entered the hotel we were greeted to a lobby full of boxes, a consequence of an ongoing renovation that the website failed to mention. When we expressed our disappointment to the check in clerk, we were met with a "take it-or-leave it" mentality. After calling a few other Marriott properties in the area and dreading getting back into another taxi to go driving, we decided to stay there anyways.
The room was surprisingly large, with a separate sitting area and pull out sofa bed. There was an area with mini fridge, microwave and sink. The room was very pleasant and included comfortable beds and a large plasma TV. We were very satisfied with the space we would be living in for the night. Since there was nothing in the immediate area to do for the night, we ordered pizza and a movie and veged out on our last night in Miami. Our room looked out on the airport runway in the distance which was cool.
The pool area was very disappointing, a small gated in area overlooking the parking lot. For Miami, I would have expected something a bit more tropical and relaxing. Palm trees and a Jacuzzi would have hit the spot. The free lobby breakfast was plentiful and diverse (egg patties, waffles, oatmeal, yogurt, ect).
The hotel is very convenient to the airport and has a Free prompt airport shuttle system. We also found the free business center and small market helpful during our stay.
Overall we had a chill, low key one night stay. The room was great, but the surrounding area was dead (no restaurants, nightlife). A true pool scene would have been nice; we would probably choose another hotel in the area that provides such an amenity in the future.
