My fiance and I stayed at the Marseilles Hotel for 4 days in January and were really pleased! We had actually booked the San Juan across the street but I decided to make a very last minute change to the Marseilles after looking at some gorgeous pictures and reading some good reviews. So glad! The location of this hotel cannot be beat, it is in the heart of South Beach, in the area where all the upscale hotels are. Its literally sandwiched between South Beach's most famous properties! It is an older, art-deco style hotel and does show its wear but its very clean. A lot of people complain about its old appearance, but having stayed in South Beach before let me tell you that this is characteristic of most of miami's art deco properties. They are old! If you want brand new you'll have to stay at Loews or the ritz and pay much more. This property shares that same fabulous beach as the expensive properties and the price cant be beat (unless you want to go a liiiiitle lower but stay in an absolute dump, like my previously reviewd Hotel Claremont on Collins). Rooms at Marseilles are a bit small but clean w comfortable bedding, a/c, fridge, tv and large closet. Some have balconies. Tub/shower combo in bathroom. Theres an on-site restaurant and bar, though we didnt eat there. Free internet in lobby. The pool is fantastic! Was never crowded, very attractive courtyard and another area between pool and beach that will make you feel like your on an island, complete with tropical pool bar, grill, hammocks, looks like a little caribbean beach bar back there! One final plus for this hotel is that they have a parking lot on the next block. Almost no SoBe hotels have parking and finding parking on the street is next to impossible. It was 25 a night but sooo worth it as we were able to explore a lot of S. Florida all on our own whenever we liked. Plus, self parking was an option. We liked not having to deal w the valet's everytime we wanted to go somewhere. This might just be the only hotel that doesnt make you use the valet in Miami. I highly recommend Marseilles Hotel. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
