“Best place for your first night after arrival in Miami”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013 via mobile

Close to airport, delivering quality, service and friendliness exceeding expectations on an airport hotel.
Including Starbucks inside, offering fruit and yoghurt and best coffee.
Valet parking is fast and reliable, the bottle water in the for your departure shows respect and competence.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

To start off, in the interests of honesty & fairness, when we visited the hotel they had a plane load of guests descend on them unannounced. Our flight had been postponed for 26hrs & this is where the airline put us up for the night with food vouchers.

The front desk was very welcoming & the huge queue could not be blamed on them. They moved through at a good pace. The room was spacious for my family, decorated with a wonderful, modern feel & spotlessly clean. The hotel provides a fee shuttle bus to the airport. It also runs a shuttle bus to the two local shopping malls – the Dolphin Mall costs $10 per person. We caught a cab – 3 people – & it didn't cost us much more & got us there 3x as fast; especially if you consider how fast Miami cabbies drive! The mall is only about 15minutes away & well worth the visit.

There is free wifi in public areas; you pay for it in guest rooms. The wifi ran smoothly. As you can guess it meant the lobby was full of people, noses stuck to their ipads.

The food in the restaurant was delicious. The buffet they put on for breakfast & lunch was spot on. Of course, being a buffet there was very little waiting to be served. The chef was out & about with info & the waiters during the day were extremely friendly & funny.

Dinner service was unfortunately a different story. I give kudos to the front desk staff members who jumped in to help host. The food when it arrived was, like I say, delicious. Unfortunately this hotel was just not equipped to cope with a plane load of passengers filling its tables. With food vouchers it’s not like we would go anywhere else & time was of the essence because we all had a bus to catch back to the airport for our flight.

Subsequently it took about 20minutes to be seated. 20 minutes to be served & by the end we didn't get our meal till 2hours after we arrived in the restaurant. We had to pick it up & eat it on the move. We remained polite throughout but the waitresses were being rude in Spanish. A rookie mistake to assume we can’t speak Spanish ourselves. Even if you couldn’t understand the language the tone was bad enough. In the end hotel security was called for another table who weren’t as laid back as us. Ironically security was called because a waitress didn't like the way she was being spoken to. I don't condone any sort of bad manners but I found it ludicrous that it was ok for her to be rude to customers. During this time I got the impression all the waiters disappeared till security gave them the all clear.

The end result to what I am saying is this is a lovely hotel to stay in. It’s very convenient for malls & the airport. For the most part the staff are extremely pleasant & friendly but that goes out the window the minute some of them are stretched. There was no apology just a vibe of anger at us for having the audacity to wish for some food. Please be aware, at any given moment a plane load of people may descend on this hotel. If you are a regular guest this will not affect you unless you wish to eat in the restaurant.

I am a Platinum Marriott Customer (over 500 nites) This is the First time I have written on tTrip advisor about the Staff of the Hotel.

Two individuals Nick The Front desk Mgr and LIan theYoung lady who handled the hotel parking on the nite of 9/9 were outstanding---we had a long drive...our air-line res. was a mess

We arrived in MIA at night and had an early flight on the next morning, so we didn't have many options besides the hotels within the airport area. There was a hotel inside the airport but it was expensive and didn't look like it was worth a high price. The Miami Airport Marriott is just five minutes from the airport and the shuttle service works very well (picks up hotel guests every 15 minutes). The bedroom was clean and comfortable to spend one night and attended our expectations. The bathroom was ok, good water pressure and some amenities such as good quality shampoos and body lotions. There was a complimentary breakfast that opens at 6am but if you need to leave earlier (our case) there is a Starbucks inside the lobby that opens at 5am.

My wife and stayed at this hotel on August 22nd, 2013, the night before our cruise. The hotel shuttle was there in five minutes and the trip to the hotel was another 5 minutes.

The lobby of the hotel was amazing, inviting and busy, check in took all of minutes and in no time we were in our room. The room it self was just a hotel room, nothing fancy, but clean and the bed was very comfortable, bathroom was small, shower after a long flight was excellent.

This hotel has everything you need, pools, gym, Starbucks(of course) pharmacy, spa and an amazing restaurant and bar, try the crab cakes!!

The next morning a 18.00 cab fare over to the pier and we were on our way to the Caribbean!! I would stay here again in a second and will, and have, recommended this hotel!

I must preface this review by saying I was amazed at the rate and what it included. I got a room, free parking and breakfast for two for only $90 on the AAA Hot Deals rate. The hotels has many floors and they heavily advertise their "Pure" bedding. Well, those beds are on all except the 2nd floor which as you guessed is where I ended up. And considering the rate, I was given room 271 which was right next to the ice machine and elevator. The view out of the window could best be described as disturbing since all I could see was some roof structure. Lastly, there was a periodic sound that resembled dogs barking which I finally attributed to the adjacent elevators. That aside, the room was decent in size, clean, with working AC and a good TV. The facility is nice and parking was convenient in the front. I did use room service and the food was decent. Breakfast was also good and our server was very attentive. Beware that they add the full gratuity to their checks, so don't over tip.

Overall, I can't complain since I had low expectations considering the rate. The staff were friendly and our say was good.

We stayed here between flights and found it super conveniently located near the airport. Easy & frequent shuttle to/from airport. Beautiful lobby and wall art. Room was clean and comfortable.

Only downside we found was that breakfast was not included so we spent $25 eating breakfast on the property.
