“Great Experience, Great People, Great Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Stayed here for a business trip recently and had a really great time. The room overlooked the beach and was nice-clean, functional. Not the largest you'll ever find, but when you go to South Beach, you aren't really spending much time in the room, anyway. Most hotel rooms at the other hotels on SB are boutique hotels that are catered to tourists who want to go to the beach, drink until 3 am, and make a lot of noise. You can do that all at the Marriott, but you are also just a few steps from the din, and so can also relax and take it easy and get away from that sometimes overwhelming scene. It also works great for business. I had meetings near the airport, and there's easy access to 95 and there isn't any traffic to speak of (I've stayed elsewhere in Miami itself and taken longer to get to the same place--and not be right on the beach).

The other reviews talk a lot about the great front desk staff. I was always greeted when I came back and was always wished well when I left. The maids actually said hello when I passed in the hall, which is something that doesn't happen that much. Can't say enough about how well I was treated. Didn't have any real problems or concerns, but they still made me feel welcome and important. Great staff.

Location is at the end of SB, a few steps away from all the touristy stuff, but right on the beach. Pool is kinda small, but nice. Didn't try the restaurant, but there is a place called The Big Pink a block away that was great if you like old diner-style food that is very reasonably priced for the area. If you walk away from the main tourist area, then you get to some nicer, more traditional restaurants.

Overall, a great hotel in a great location. Really nice and helpful staff, really good service. I'd stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel after a cruise and found it to be a great choice. Even though we arrived early since the cruise line disembarks passengers at 8am, we were pleasantly surprised our room was ready. After 7 days in a cramped cruise ship cabin, our room looked enormous! The staff was friendly and efficient even checking with us to be sure the roll away bed was delivered. The location in the Ocean Drive district was ideal for walking and people watching and after a lovely relaxing afternoon by the pool and strolling on the beach. We even watched our cruise ship pass by on its next trip out to sea. Overall a very enjoyable stay and we will definitely stay here again

Was recently at the MARRIOTT South Beach Jan 4-8 and enjoyed the great weather and general atmosphere of Miami. The Marriott was a typical Marriott with a nice location on the beach. The 3 stars results from :

1. Crazy slow elevators (the hotel was full and any time between 7AM and 1AM you would stop on all floors only two elevators which 3-4 are needed.

2. Slow and expensive internet $14.95 a day is robbery most hotels in South Beach offer free WiFi , come on Marriott.

The room was clean and on 3 out the four days it was cleaned while I was out of the room all day , except one in which at 3pm they began to clean my floor ....

I did not try the restaurant and the bar was casual and friendly .. for a busy weekend it was relatively empty.

This hotel is on the FAR south to SOUTH BEACH to get the to main area its a 5 min walk and to get to LINCOLN Ave its a good 15 min + walk .. to its a bit off the central area, which is not a problem for there is way less noise for the streets.... Across the street is one of the best Steak Houses in Miami PRIME and Prime Italian is next door ....

With all the choices in South Beach this one I would either return for for free points stay or if rates were sub $300 ..... I know Jan -Apr the rates here are $450.00+ especially on weekends which is expensive for a Marriott...

Door men and check in staff were great friendly and quick.

On a side note I did leave an small item in my room and believe it got removed with the sheets upon check out ... called the hotel back it was never found.

Room Tip: Get a ocean-view upgrade if you can... or high floor if your on the street side...

It was a pleasure to have you as our guest during your recent visit to South Beach Marriott. However, it is disappointing to hear that you did not fully enjoy your experience with us. We will be going into renovation starting May and we hope you come back to enjoy our great new room product designed by Jeffrey beers JBI.

This hotel is a great beach front property and has a wonderful staff. The beds are super comfortable and relaxing. The beach chairs are not included and for the per night price that is disappointing, a great property, just a little on the expensive side.

Room Tip: Save yourself some money and walk the 2 blocks to get breakfast.

Dear Guest:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences at our hotel with us and our TripAdvisor readers. We are very happy to learn you enjoyed your stay with us. The staff at The South Beach Marriott works really hard to create wonderful memories for our guests. In regards to the beach, it is important for us to point out that it is a public beach and local vendors get special permits from the city to rent chairs and umbrellas. All hotels in the area are subject to the same situation; however, all chairs and umbrellas are free of charge throughout the hotel's wonderful pools. We are looking forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to South Beach!

I just spent the last weekend here with a friend, not my first time and defiantly not the last it was just what I needed.
The weather was amazing, sunny and warm the staff at the beach and the pool was very nice.
The hotel has a very good restaurant and bar we had brunch there they had a big variety and everything was very fresh and the staff is very nice as well.
The hotel is clean and looks very nice it’s in a good location, close to everything you can party hard here or relax or do both like I did, can’t wait to come back.

Excellent Hotel and accomodations with a staff that was totally geared to providing Top Notch customer service. Awesome time! From the walk down the beach to the festivities at pool side the whole experience was delightful. We walked through the neighborhood and bought some things at the local stores and the front desk was kind enough to let us store those things behind the desk so we could continue our shopping excursion.

I am a VERY frequent traveler and currently live in London with my family. For the second year in a row we spent our holiday at this hotel and loved every minute of it and will be back for the third time in 2013. The location is very good, beach access and kids play area is very convenient but the key is the people. Starting with the Valet from when you arrive and best in class service from the front desk team. Eyal, Eranya and Seth to name a few. I am a Marriott Platinum and this is our favorite property to visit.
