“Average hotel downtown”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2011

I stayed at the Downtown Miami CY overnight for business recently. It was a good hotel for my needs - I needed a bed, a place to have breakfast, and a place to change before and after a meeting downtown. The CY met my needs in that regard. The hotel is older, but clean. The lobby is renovated and has the new "bistro" theme that Marriott is using throughout their hotels. The bar/bistro area was nice, they had a good selection of food and drinks, and the employees were helpful and friendly.

Pros: Upon arrival, I was upgraded to a suite, and given a free drink voucher. I'm Marriott gold, but this was still a nice touch. The hotel was clean, and the suite was spacious and had two small balconies. Bed was comfortable. The bistro was a nice place to have a beer, and the breakfast sandwich I had was reasonably priced and very tasty. The location is right in the heart of downtown - not really a great area, but good for business. If you're staying for vacation, I'd stay elsewhere. Parking was reasonable and easy to access.

Cons: Room smelled a little musty, and the AC was loud. The bathroom was smaller than most Marriotts, and the shower leaked onto the floor (I didn't mind, but housekeeping probably did).

Overall, a decent stay, but I wouldn't recommend for long-term stays or vacation.

We stayed at this hotel for the Labor Day weekend. It's right in the middle of downtown Miami, really close to Port of Miami and Star Island. Honestly I did not mind that the hotel was not in South Beach. We spent the evening in South Beach and came back to the hotel. It was not that far. For a room like this we would have paid much more in South Beach and we chose to spend less but still stay at a good place. The rooms were remodeled and very clean. Complimentary breakfast was good too. I have no complains and I would suggest this hotel to anybody who would go to Miami.

Hotel facility was your typical Courtyard Marriott. Clean, nice, and great location for a pre-cruise stay. What was really remarkable was the staff. We used a Marriott bonus certificate for a free room and felt like royalty. There was literally nothing these folks wouldn't do for us. I hope after my cruise I have remembered her name correctly but Joanne at the front desk was outstanding.

We stayed here before our cruise. Rooms were recently remodeled and everything was fresh. Nice to have a balcony. However very noisy from the traffic outside. They need soundproofed glass.

We loved this hotel! It was clean, nicely decorated and had comfortable beds. The view of the pool and downtown Miami was also lovely. My only issue was the cost of transportation. There is not much around this hotel so transportation by cab can get expensive. The hotel does run a shuttle though the night we arrived the night staff knew nothing about this and it wasn't until the day we were leaving that it was offered to us. Shuttle to airport $30 to Cruise port was about $15. Anywhere else was about $25 such as South Beach or Coconut Grove. Our first night exploring we spent $125 in cabs. We were taking a Carnival Cruise so this hotel was conveniently located near the port. Would stay there again if that was the arrangement/

Room Tip: Ask for a pool facing room..much nicer

We stayed here for one night in mid-August on our way down to Key West. It was a nice enough hotel and was within easy walking distance of the Miami waterfront. Our room was on the top floor over looking the pool. The room was very nice for the price range, small refrigerator, king size bed, flat screen tv, and decent bathroom. The main negatives were that the elevators were very slow, there were no clean towels available when we went out to the use pool area, and there is not a full-service restaurant on site. The front desk staff was very friendly. We self parked in the parking deck that is adjacent to the hotel and that was very easy. Overall, it probably is not a hotel that you would want to stay at for a week, but for just a night or two, it was fine.
