“A great Residence Inn near MIA airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

Arriving late in Miami airport after a 24 h journey flight from Paris due to a delayed connexion in Newark, we rent a car at Alamo and drived only a few miles to the Residence Inn Doral. Very easy to find with GPS. The employee at the front desk was very helpful and registration was quick.
This property is well maintained, nice pool. Breakfast buffet is various. Only a little negative point : no seats enough in the breakfast room. The kitchen is well equipped, and no problem to find a Publix. On our first day we were afraid by the noise of the planes landing on the near runway, but during the night this is not a problem for sleeping. This hotel is not overpriced, around 130 $ a night. My wife and I often stay in Mami area for business/leisure, and will return at this place in our next stop in Miami.

Decided to go this hotel despite all the reviews complaining about the airplane noise (and occasionally also a train). Major reason to do so where the favorable price (up to 6 persons can stay in the double bed& bathroom penthouse suite !), the Marriot/ Residence Inn quality and the location (not far from airport, on walking distance from Wall Mart and close to 3 malls (Dolphin, International & mall of America). Staid 3 nights and no train passed while the airplane noise wasn't too bad (for me) if in the room with the door shut. The major con's for this hotel were the fact that not all suites on 2nd floor had elevator access and when raining the only place where you basically don't get wet is in your room or the lobby area. By extending the roof's a significant % of the "hall ways" can easily be kept dry so your feet get less wet and dirty when you enter your room. Also some of the suites (building 8 & 9)need to be accessed via the walkway of 82nd avenue; when stepping out the room you are basically on the street.
Rooms were large and clean, swimming pool clean but a little cold (but - in my experience - not unusual for the Miami hotels), the hot tub was better than of the Residence inn by Marriot Miami airport, the exercise room had only 2 treadmills,1bike and 1 elliptical machine, but no weights and no math's to do floor exercise although the space is sufficient for it. Check in/out was fast and hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Complmentarry hot Breakfast was good and the food at the managers reception (Monday thru Thursday) is sufficient to fill your stomach till the free breakfast in the morning.
Overall we got the expected Residence Inn /Marriot quality, while the price is less than other competing hotels in the Doral area. If you have a car, don't have problems with airplane noise, need a kitchen in your room, need to stay in this neighborhood and are on a limited budget than this is the place to stay.

Rooms are decent. Pool is filthy. Breakfast/dinner is bad quality and will give you stomach ache. Front desk staff are awful, especially management, except for this young girl that was very nice.

Loud train passes by in the day/night and constant noise of airplanes is very annoying. Bad phone reception and terrible wifi speed. Saw prostitutes coming in and out of their rooms with their johns. Also I've seen police respond a couple of times.Not coming back to this place.

Just stopped for one night. Breakfast was the typical residence inn. Staff at buffet was friendly and kept the area clean. Front desk made the stay enjoyable. Nathalia at the front desk could not have been more helpful. Helped me plan my day. She was so helpful and friendly. Would highly recommend this hotel for it's friendly people. Rooms starting to show age, need some minor upkeep.

Room Tip: The higher the better for the view. Close to airport, provides airport shuttle. Some plane noise b...

I stayed here for four nights on business and loved it. The rooms are not dated but they are not modern either..I found the rooms to be quite comfortable and large. It is also nice having the full kitchen. The front desk and hotel staff were very friendly and welcoming. The complimentary breakfast was good and had a little bit of everything. They also serve light complimentary dinner mon-thurs which was surprisingly good! Parking is free at this hotel and close to the rooms. I do like the location because it isn't right off a busy street so it is easy to get in and out. I am unable to comment on housekeeping as I chose to not have my room cleaned since I was there for a short period of time. On arrival day, the room was clean and felt fresh.

The only cons about the hotel is that it is not sound proofed well so you do hear the planes every now and then. The noise wasn't a big deal to me and never woke me up personally. Also, it rained very hard on my stay and the sidewalks and grassy areas leading to my building were flooded. I had to no choice but to walk in water which was 3-4 inches deep and soaked my shoes. It didn't bother me though because they can't control the weather and everything else about my stay was perfect.

I stayed at a larger hotel last time I was in Miami but it lacked the kitchen and comfort this hotel has. If I ever have to do business in Miami again, I will request to be put in this hotel. I truly enjoyed my stay and that is why I am rating excellent!

Room Tip: Nice being on the first floor near the pool as it is easy to access the lobby for breakfast/dinner.

If you love airplanes (like I do) then this is the place to be. The hotel sits right at the end of the runway, so planes constantly go over..I would recommend bringing a loud fan or put one on your IPhone. There is a curfew for aircraft, but you will still here a few cargo planes through the night. We were impressed with the free dinners they serve (Mon-Thurs) if you don't feel like going out. It is located very close to resteraunts and shopping. Some resteraunts within walking distance. The Mexican place across the street was delicious! The rooms overall were good. They just need to clean the obvious. The glass sliding doors (ours looked like a dog had been licking it) and the door to the bathroom had obvious dirt on it that just needed wiped off. If you need to ask the maid for towels or coffee, forget about it if you don't speak Spanish!! Overall, it's not bad and I would stay there again.

Besides the airplanes noise landing at MIA Airport, the hotel staff were really nice during our stay! The only thing at night you could hear every footstep of our neighbor upstairs. They dont tell this during your booking, they include as well dinner from Monday to Thursday. Looking for a great value and dont mind the noises of planes and neighbors in Miami, this is it!
