“Great Visit. Great Service. Will Return.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We have friends in SoBe so we like to get a room and enjoy the city.
We went down for the Labor Day Weekend and the Marriott SoBe exceeded our expectations!

The property was built around 2001 and is currently undergoing some updating and renovation work. The building is on a small lot and has very little free or open space. The pool is tight and can get crowded on weekends. The pool and outside restaurant have a panoramic view of the ocean. The design of the pool and restaurant is very nice and they did a decent job with the space available.

It is not a secret that SoBe is known for its lack of commitment to ANY customer satisfaction. As a rule, the service stinks! So we were blown away by the total attention to detail provided by the staff. The team members on the floor would say Hello and ask us questions about our day and made a point to talk to the kids. Nice Touch.
I have to single out, however, the OUTSTANDING job by the pool attendant – Patty. She is a complete Jewel. Towels were provided and folded on your comfortable chair and Patty made sure you had water, towels and she even gave my kids a ball and floating toy. We are already planning another trip to SoBe and Patty will be the reason we choose this Marriott again.
The check in and out was easy and very professional.

I thought the room was better than a typical Marriott Category 8 room. We had a front facing room with a balcony. We did experience some noise during the night but what do you expect, you are in SoBe.

My favorite place for breakfast is two short blocks west called Big Pink. Love it! Huge menu and there is something for everyone. (also excellent for late, late night or easy lunch!)

The hotel is right next door to Nikki Beach Club and is always worth a walk over for an expensive drink and a chance to check out the bikini crowd.

The hotel is close to many high end restaurants such as Joe’s Stone Crab (in season), Smith and Wollensky, Prime 112 Steak House, Prime Italian, and others. If cheesy/touristy is more your style than you will love Ocean Drive. I am a fan of Lincoln Road restaurants. It is great and has many styles and price ranges for your wallet. (not this trip, but recently I went to Yardbird – look for my Trip Advisor review to be posted soon).

Nice Job SoBe Marriott. Hope to see you soon.

I had a great experience staying here, with very helpful staff (in particular the concierge, Seth.) They had splendid breakfasts in the morning, and a nice aperitif at the front desk to welcome you back in the afternoon.

The location of this hotel and its fantastic staff is unrivaled. After 35 consecutive nights (business trip), I can honestly say that it provided all the comforts of home. Amazing access to the the beach, restaurants and Miami night life. Daily breakfast is literally out of sight--can't miss. Ask for the lead concierge, Seth Frank, for any information/recommendations on local attractions. Seth is outstanding! I'll be back in Miami and can't imagine staying anywhere else!

I stay at Marriott any chance I get because im a rewards member and honestly i find their beds very comfortable to sleep in (so much so that i purchased their pillows for home), but this happens to be one of my favorite hotels so far. The balcony view is amazing, its on the beach, 2 pools, jacuzzi, bar and best of all the location is nice and quiet while i can simply walk a few blocks to the craziness of ocean drive.

Room Tip: The ocean view balcony room is my favorite.

Everything about this hotel is first class! The rooms are immaculate; the location is unrivaled; and the staff is incredibly professional and accommodating. I stayed here for 5 weeks and was never told 'no' by the staff. Instead, I always felt as if I was their main priority. Their concierge, Seth, is a wealth of help! He took time everyday to make sure that I was taken care of. The hotel is definitely lucky to have him on staff! I can't wait until my next visit to Miami!

I have nothing but nice things to say about the Marriott South Beach! My husband and I spent four nights there through Labor Day Weekend to celebrate his milestone birthday. We had a wonderful time chilling out at the pool, relaxing by the beach – and of course, the staff contributed to our great time. The Concierge was very helpful, no matter who was at the desk. Patti, the Pool Service Manager, was awesome and incredibly attentive.The hotel was clean and well-managed throughout our entire stay. Great experience overall – would definitely return!

We recently stayed at this hotel, after reading the reviews. The hotel is situated to the north of the main attractions, yet close enough in a taxi ride. The reception area provided free coffee, with the added bonus of free popcorn on certain days and sweets on another day. The rooms were large, and excellently decorated. There was renovations being carried out whilst we were there but there was no noise, or disruption. The pool and tiki bar provided an excellent area to relax. Beyond the tiki bar was the boardwalk. Excellent breakfast, with a large choice. Would certainly recommend this place, and I would stay there again. Brill

Room Tip: 2nd floor, overlooking the pool
