“Wonderful Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We had the opportunity to visit Miami Beach in early October. We were told to this was the hotel for a family members wedding so we decided to book our stay at this hotel. I am so glad we did. Located right on the beach, yet not so close to all the other more nosier hotels and restaurants this place was the perfect place to stay. It was close to all the shopping stores various eclectic restaurants and transportation was available in case you did not have a car rental. The concierge was very helpful in directing us to "places to see" in Miami. They had a massage/mani-pedi salon. In house restaurant and bar and full room service. The food in the restaurant was always delicious and fresh. The employees were all helpful. All in all they made our stay very enjoyable. As for the wedding, catering was done by the hotel and that was also done beautifully. My next trip to Miami, I will definitely stay at this hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better view of the ocean.

The hotel is in a perfect location. All of the rooms had a view of the beach.
The staff was very friendly. We rented one of the cabanas and it was fabulous! There was a flatscreen TV, fridge, zipped curtain for privacy, and bottled water was provided. All for only $50 ALL day and evening, even if you leave and come back later. It is still yours!
Whereas, the umbrella and chairs on the beach were $40 for only up to 5pm each day.
We had a waiter that checked on us frequently. I truly recommend this hotel because it is only a few blocks away from the strip.

Enjoy

Room Tip: The rooms are not very roomy, but the location makes it where you don't have to stay in the room...

This Hotel had an excellent location, if you dont want to stay in Ocean Drive above the restaurant. It was just 200 m walk from the busy Ocean Drive. Hotel was in quiet location, so you get a good night sleep. Good pool area, next to the beach. Excellent breakfast. Staff was friendly and helpful. Only problems we had was with Taxis and their prices (got wrong info from the hotel).
I can really recommend this to all.

Room Tip: If you get a beach view, ask for room with a prober balcony, not the french one.

I attended a wedding of 125 people, staff was courteous ,however so much left to be desired . For the cost of this weeding approximatley $22,000. Variety of liquor was poor,not to mention cheap brands. The main course was not what we were served at tasting. The chicken which was served insted of pork loin was undercooked and had a metal pin in it . I should have taken a picture to post . The rice which accompanied the chicken was also undercooked & hard . Uncle Ben's would have been a better alternative. The disc jockey , While the groom & his mother shared the first dance not once but twice had technical difficulites with the same song , This disc jockey which The Marriot provided can make a bettter hamburger flipper @ Johnny Rockets. I would NEVER recommend this establishment to ANYONE. They should seriously consider going under new managment or taking the name MARRIOT from the signoff at the entrance , It is an injustice to charge that kind of cash , and destroy the memory of a married couple on this very special day. I have advised my family member to seek legal council and request a partial refund and possible sue for damages . This was unforgivable !!!! Digusted with their service !!!

I think most ofnthe people who stay here do so because they can use Marriott reward points to get a free room... I am one of those people. If I had to PAY upwards of $400, no way.
First, the good. It is clean and comfortable. It is on the beach. The service people are very nice and friendly.
The not so good. The location. This is on the bottom of SOBE, in a semi undesirable area about 5 blocks from the beginning of the action. It's a long walk if it's hot and humid, or if it's late at night.
The restaurant. Deco Blue is an uninhabited disaster. There are no patrons , none at night..ok maybe one? The menu is pedestrian, no effort.
The breakfast is ok, but $24$? The concierge lounge is closed on the weekend.
Overall, it's ok..just inconvenient , and hard to get a taxi. It doesn't have any " south beach " vibe, but is you can get it for free using points? Go for it.

This property was just good. Not excellent. Location wasn't great as it was secluded from the lively part of the South Beach which usually starts from 5th street. In short, there can be better options than staying in this hotel. They staff is not much co-operative and sound cold. We stayed in Beach View room which was good. I recommend you to go for this room in case you pick this hotel.

Room Tip: Beach View room
