Staying at the Marlin epitomizes the ultimate South Beach. The trendy boutique hotel is quaint but still ultra hip and modern. The location was phenomenal, but what really made our exceptional was the staff. Alex the manager and Jeff were immediately welcoming and offered restaurant, night life, etc. suggestions. Housekeeping was efficient and accommodating. Traveling with 3 girls, safety is a concern, and knowing Damian was downstairs at night made us feel secure and comfortable. And he was also lots of fun to talk to after coming coming back at 3:00 am. All in all, we were sad to leave the Marlin and will be staying longer next time.
