“Great Location to the Beach, Shops & Starbux”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Would've given this hotel 5 Stars had it not been for the few mishaps in the room. I'll start with the positive.

Great Location!! Beachfront property. Has guest only pool and jacuzzi areas. Wasn't far at all from South Beach fun and there's shop and restaurant aplenty nearby. Definitely a plus to have Starbucks right next door! :)

Fitness room was a tad small but its great for what you need to do & go. I didn't go to the Spa but its quaint also.

Valet was the way to go for us as street pkng is a challenge as many already know. There were some beautiful cars to admire at the hotel. Ferraris, Bentleys, very nice eye candy.

We ate at the hotel's restaurant for lunch on the terrace-food was great! Had moonlit drinks and apps one evening in the outdoor fireside seating. Very picturesque with the fountain and waves crashing in the background. They have cute cabanas also, I presume you can eat in them or even get a spa service. Wasn't back to the hotel in time enough to inquire.

Before we left, tried the breakfast buffet which was Awesome. Well worth the $25/pp. You would spend that anyway for a la carte items. The waffles were yummy, yogurt & granola were fresh, custom egg white omelettes & crisp bacon (major plus!) and an array of other items to choose from.

Now for the room. Very comfy when we finally got in! It wasn't ready until hours after we arrived :( So doublecheck enroute to the hotel on rm availability. Hotel staff were very friendly though.

For some reason the TV didn't want to work even after the tech came to tweek it. The sound would go up automatically then you couldn't turn the TV off. Sometimes it wouldn't cut on with the remote or manual button. Weird....

The patio door was stuck so couldn't go out and enjoy the morning sunrise or get a lil fresh air. The tech came by the next day and fixed that.

Was wondering why the comforter was so thin, thought maybe it was just sheets doubled. as Marriott usually has plush comforters -feather down, etc. Nope turns out it was a duvet with nothing in it. Requested a new one and it was delivered quickly.

Overall I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Request Early check in and follow up that its available.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Rooms were great and they all seem to have a great view with the angled sides. The location is great as well, easy to get to without the traffic headaches of the rest of the beach, yet it is close, as in a three block walk to the main attractions. There are several awesome restaurants within an easy walk as well, Pink, Joe's Stone Crabs, Fogo de Chao. My only complaints were that the coffee seemed a little weak in the 11th floor lounge, but the Starbucks attached to the lobby more than made up for it.

I stayed in this hotel for about six days , the location is perfect is perfect as it on the Beach directly and ocean view
It's about 2 minutes walk from ocean drive street and its far from the noise so you can get a good sleep.
The rooms is a little old but in average it's nice and clean but the hotel is a little expensive.

We had a long wait as we checked in at 11 pm. Only 1 desk clerk available. Room was great! Nice balcony comfortable bed, clean rooms! All top importance to me. Breakfast was excellent, although pricey. Aviary on site was a bit small and not what I was expecting, although it was unique. Staff friendly. A fun boutique hotel.

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

Rooms were clean, great location right on Ocean Dr where all the action is, Starbucks in the hotel, and staff is very pleasant and say hello and offer help. There is also a cool bar and patio with fire pit.

Everyone and I mean everyone at this hotel was welcoming, professional and friendly. We were there for just one night, but we were treated as if we were regular customers. From start to finish a great experience. Very comfortable beds. Clean bathroom. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The higher the better - we were on 5 - the view was slightly blocked by palms, but the ocean view wa...

We checked into Room 625 and started to put our clothes in the one small wardrobe closet . The ceiling in the closet was covered with about 15 flying gnats . We immeidetly called the front desk and the young concierge Michael, apologized profusely ,had our clothes taken up to room 927 , a slight upgrade and sent us up a bottle of wine , fruit , cheese and crackers ,and also gave us a very late check out for our departure 5 days away . During our stay ,it seemed everyone knew our name and the service was excellent . Our car was always waiting for us ,upon calling down for valet , the beach attendants always had our favorite spot picked out everyday after day 1 ,and the restaurant bartender was friendly and lunch was served quickly . The view of the beach was fantastic . Last trip to Miami we stayed at The Westin Diplomat inan oceanfront upgraded King . The Marriott is friendlier and not as busy , a better choice . Located in quieter Sofi area , watched the cruise ships pass by in South Pointe and enjoyed the "show" outside Prime 112 .

One negative , the rooms are near the point of renovation , but the great service let us overlook the slightly worn room, I travel the world and would return .

Room Tip: Stay on the North side ,above the 5th floor ,as close to the beach as possible .
