I love Marriott Rewards and I love this hotel. Where do I begin?
Marriott South Beach is located at the southern end of South Beach. This is good thing. You're only about a 7 minute walk from the hustle and bustle of sexy Russians knocking you down to come try their $20 drinks at all of the restaurants on Ocean Drive.
I'm platinum with Marriott and was upgraded to a suite with a separate living room (couch, 2 flatscreens, 2 accesses to private balcony). I was also given concierge lounge access. The lounge had a very solid breakfast complete with eggs, meat, oatmeal, doughnuts, etc. The evening appetizers were more than appetizers; one could probably make a meal of it. One of Marriott's finer concierge lounges. The pools at this hotel are beautiful with a jacuzzi placed between them. Beach access is convenient. The food and drinks ordered poolside have gratuity added automatically. A server told me it was due to the large number of European customers who do not tip. Thanks, Europe.
My room had the typical super comfortable Marriott bed. The balcony was nice. I think every room (except for maybe 10) in the whole hotel have balconies. There was a multicultural fair in the lobby with little tables offering drinks and food from area countries (Cuba, Haiti, PR, DR, etc). There is a Starbucks and ATM in the lobby. Housekeeping staff was super nice and spoke every time they saw me.
Took a cab to an area restaurant called "Yardbird." Southern style fixin's that will not disappoint.
I will definitely be back to this hotel. Worth every dollar. 4 out of 5 stars.
