What a find! we have stayed at the Mariott Hotel & Mariott Courtyard hotels near Miami airport before; the SpringHill Suites are part of the Mariott chain - with HUGE rooms & kitchenette, a view over a calm lagoon and you don't hear any airplanes. The breakfast is adequate; typically american with huge hoards of people 'dining' each morning. Most of whom are guests who are going on or coming from a cruise. The hotel has a small fitness room and outside pool (not heated!). The reception staff are simply lovely. Nothing is too much for them. As everywhere in Miami, it's best if you speak Spanish. Free parking and a shuttle takes you pretty much anywhere you want to be including car rental & airport.
