“Worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I just got back from my second visit to this hotel. I absolutely love it! The staff is great and the food is delicious (marriott has the best burgers and fried oysters). I enjoyed a spectacular view of downtown Miami and the free shuttle service to south beach made our stay all the much better! The pool could use a make over but everything else definitely compensates for its lacking. I definitely recommend the hotel restaurant called "catch". Their seafood is to die! And their heat relief drink is perfect! A big shout out to best server in downtown miami, AMBER!! She's amazing and kept us coming back to the hotel for food even though we had so many other options. Two thumbs up for marriott biscayne. Definitely a miami destination hotel!

Couple of my friends and I stayed there for 3 night. We had blast. This hotel was clean and the stuff were friendly. Got a great view from the balcony. they got a little bar near the swimming pool. Had an awesome time.

Room Tip: ask the front desk if they can gave you the room with great view from the balcony.

This Marriott location was ideal for getting around in Miami (downtown, South Beach, etc.). Their lobby was beautiful but their rooms were just average. We were originally assigned a room with a slanted wall that made the room look half the size. They kindly accommodated our request for a full size room with a view. The rooms do not have a refridgerator or microwave, which is bummer -- especially if you're a person who like to wrap your left-overs and enjoy them the next day.

The pool area was not the best. It's situated between the hotel and a high-rise condo development, which also has a pool a few feet away. You can actually see clothes hanging out to dry from their balconies. It was not a pleasant sight.

Our accommodations included complimentary breakfast held in the "Catch" restaurant. The food was great, but can be a little pricey if you are paying daily. We opt to do the buffet, since you pretty much can get whatever you want.

The concierge attendants were very pleasant and very helpful. The response to service calls were pretty slow. Also, room service didn't clean our tub one day of our stay.

I'm sure by now you can see why I had mixed reviews about this hotel. There were as many pros as they were cons. There's definitely room for improvement.

Room Tip: Request a full size room. Not one with the slanted walls.

Greetings!

We want to sincerely thank you for your thorough and detailed feedback. As a senior contriburot I know you provide frequent feedback to the TA site and it is clear through your input that you provide this information fairly and objectively. I will be sharing this feedback with the appropriate department leaders.

As it relates to our pool we are presently working hard to re-define this area. As a downtown hotel, our pool area needs to have its own "personality" of sorts and our focus is to provide you with an experience that would grab your attention from the balconies of our neighboring buildings!

I will also be speaking with our restaurant leadership to make them aware of your pricing concerns. We constantly sample the market to ensure that we remain competitive while providing superior product. Catch is currently gearing up for Miami Spice which will also provide affordable samplings of our culinary staff's genius.

Again we appreciate all that you shared with us and we look forward to hosting you again in the future!

I had not stayed here for over 12 years . I am glad to say it has had a refurbishment since my
Last visit. There is not much to do in the immediate vicinity however it is only a few minutes by road to South Beach and the hotel run a free shuttle daily . The pool area is fairly small considering the size of the hotel but it is a welcome relief from the heat . The outside bar/ decking area overlooking the water is a lovely place to sit on the comfortable sofas and listen to the live music (. Which wasn't so loud it became intrusive ) and watch the sun go down . The front desk staff are very well organised which is great as the lobby gets very busy at times .

There seems to be a number of mixed reviews about this hotel. However from my personal perspective, my stay was stress free. The front desk and concierge service were excellent and were always willing to help and provide a good service. The beds and pillows are to die for and I have never had such a restful sleep in a hotel in my life. This alone made this hotel a winner. The pool isnt large, but towels and a beach bar is provided. Catch Restaurant within the hotel also looked nice and they provided daily deals. The views overlook Biscayne Bay and about 5 mins away from the cruise terminals. We asked for 2 queens with a balcony and we had views over the pool and Biscayne. The room was extremely large (921) with coffee making facilities in the room. Although the bathroom was small, it was clean. The hotel is adjacent to a small shopping complex with a couple of restuarants/deli and small supermarket, where you can pick up your daily items and is a 5 mins walk away from Publix supermarket. The hotel is located south of SOBE about 10 mins in a cab (15 bucks) or 15 - 20 mins on public transport. The hotel is a stone throw away from OMNI bus terminal where there is access to a multitude of GOOD public transportation. The 120 bus is a limited stop which takes you directly to SOBE, Washington Drive 5th//9th/13th (2 bucks) or alternatively the C bus, but this takes slightly longer and the trolley provides easy access to Bayside. There is also a monorail which provides access to various areas within downtown miami.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have balcony's, but request one.

Stayed here for pre cruise. Hotel was very clean,and had a beautiful view on 28 th floor of the bay,and miami. Pool was okay,but kind of small for the amount of rooms they have. I thought it was nice that they had water in a container for you to drink by the pool,suntan lotion (2 different spf's),and aloe Vera. We will definitely stay here again.

So I arrive to the hotel July 5 around 2am. I understand its late but nobody showed up at the desk for 15 min so I was just standing there waiting. Finally got my room key and it was the smallest room on earth the bed was so big it took up all the walking space in the room. If you can avoid getting a corner room please do I think there all very small. The bathroom was so small it felt uncomfortable to shower while my boyfriend brushed his teeth. The room was clean just really small because its a corner room. Now to the parking situation it's $30 for valet or $26 for self parking PER DAY with unlimited in and out privileges. Be ready to park in the ramp lane and handicap space if you get back in late at night. The location is great a 10 min drive to Miami South Beach.
