We arranged at the last minute to spend the last few days of our holiday in Miami Beach, and were really late booking our room. I found Marlin hotel at Booking.com and booked one of their spare rooms. When we arrived, quite late after driving all the way from St. Augustine to Miami, we were upgraded to the largest room, free of charge, even though we had only originally booked the cheapest one. Such great costumer service. All the staff were absolute darlings, and on our last day we had a late flight and we were allowed to use our room for a small fee until 5 pm in the evening. The room is so cool. Everything is controlled by an iPad mini, even the curtains. The tv is hidden behind a large mirror and the mini bar actually have a full blown selection of large bottles of vodka, brandy, gin you name it. The whole experience was just brilliant.
The record studio is another feature to this hotel that makes it cool. We were actually allowed to have a little tour around the studio, and its loads of famous artist who has recorded their albums here. Location is perfect as well, just a short walk to the beach and all the night life on ocean drive, also the shops on lincon road, and of cause Collins ave itself. Its close to everything, but quiet enough to get a good nights sleep. The hotel is also art deco style, and realy beautyful. We would like to recommend this hotel and will definatly stay here again.
