I've stayed at this hotel for 1 month and am quite pleased with the stay.
Yes, this hotel is located at the end of the runway for Miami International Airport, still I managed to always get a good night's sleep.
The Airport switches runways ,so the noise doesn't last all day and night.
Also after a while, the brain seems to be able to block out the sound.
However, this hotel has the quietest air conditioning that I experienced in any hotel.
The hotel seems to have central air conditioning that you can hardly hear in the room.
This is great compared to those loud air conditioners that most hotels provide.
That alone makes it worthwhile staying here.
The suite is always cool and quiet.
My wife and I checked into a King 1 bedroom suite.
They renovated everything except the toilet and shower part of the bathroom.
The toilet and bathtub/shower are separate from the sink.
However, the room is dingy and tiny.
I am surprised that they didn't renovate that part of the suite.
The bathtubs are quite old.
The suite has a full kitchen which is great.
The full size fridge came in handy.
The mattress isn't of the greatest quality.
It's not horrible but you would expect better in a Marriott.
Also the towels have seen their better days.
They are anything but plush.
The suite also has a sliding door and window that opens.
Neither of them have a screen, yet this is Miami.
It doesn't look like they cleaned the window in years.
The window was quite dirty and there were bird droppings on the railing.
(Yes, this is a Marriott).
The hotel has a pool.
At the pool, they have padded lounge chairs.
There were lounge chairs but no side tables.
So you either have to use another lounge chair as a table or put your items on the ground.
The towels supplied at the pool were quite ratty.
However, most of the time, there were no towels at the pool.
I usually had to walk back to my suite to grab a towel.
The hotel provides breakfast daily.
I have no complaints about the breakfast.
They also provide a light meal Monday to Thursday.
The meals provided were not that exciting, so I rarely ate at the hotel.
Meals that I had at various Staybridge hotels were more interesting.
Still, they do provide a meal along with wine, beer or soda.
The property is fairly clean and the staff is friendly.
Even though I have some complaints, the suite was nice.
It had 2 flat screen TV's.
The room also had 2 phones.
The high speed Internet service was free.
It was a little slow at times when I tried to stream videos but generally it was pretty good.
The hotel is about 3 miles from Dolphin Mall.
There is a Wal-Mart and Sam's Club lthat is a 2 minute drive from the hotel
Dadeland isn't too far.
However with light traffic it takes over half an hour to drive to South Beach.
It also takes about 1/2 hour to get to Sawgrass Mills.
My wife and I were supposed to stay in West Palm Beach for 6 weeks.
We couldn't take the boredom after 2 weeks, so we booked this Residence Inn in Miami at the last minute.
Given a choice, I would stay elsewhere next time around.
However, our stay at this hotel was quite pleasant.
