4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

The former Stanton Hotel remodeled and expanded by Marriott. Given a city view room but there is construction all over. Changed to an oceanfront room. Rooms are rather small as are the showers. Staff is top notch and very helpful. Seems to be very popular with Brazilians. Two pools and access to the beach. Must use valet parking ($37) as there is very limited street parking.

Dear Guest:
I’d like to thank for sharing your experience at the Marriott Stanton South Beach. We apologize you were disappointed with the city view room you originally reserved. The city of Miami Beach is growing and unfortunately we do not have control over the constructions that are currently taking place in the area. You made a great choice by upgrading to an ocean front room, since those rooms have stunning views. I am very sorry to hear you were disappointed with the size of your room, however, it is important for us to point out; we are a boutique style hotel, just like the rest of the hotels on Ocean Drive. What our rooms lack in space they more than make up for in style and modernism. Thank you also for your positive comments on our staff's level of service, we take great pride in their accomplishments. We value your business and your input, and I hope that you will consider letting us host you again!

This property has a great location. The entire staff was friendly. Special mention goes to Diego in the bar and Serg at the concierge desk. Everyone was very professional and helpful at all times.

The rooms were very nice and bright. Especially if you have a balcony with that great water view! Our bathroom door was broken but still functional. They did send someone up to look at it but it wasn't an easy fix. We did find an old hotel receipt and some paper with notes written on it in our room when we checked in, which made me question the cleaning but everything else was excellent.

We recently stayed at this hotel and found it to be the prefect place to stay on South Beach. Great location, just at the end of the crazy fun action of the strip, so the noise at night was a non-factor but close enough to walk to the action.

The staff was outstanding! We hung out at the pool and the stay there (Kathrine) was very nice and our waiter (Remi) went out of his way to take care of us all day. Remi even sent a basket of fruit to our room thanking us! Very cool and unexpected!

We will be back!

Room Tip: Spend the extra money and face the beach, it's worth it. Also, get to the pool early.

Green Features: Truly enjoyed talking with the staff. They all seemed very sincere when asking if we needed anything.

This was our second trip to this property. As noted by other reviewers, the rooms have been nicely updated. We enjoyed the restaurant's breakfast buffet (which included an omelet station) and its attentive wait staff (especially Shanell). The most notable change was the improved level of concierge service. Seth Frank did an outstanding job in assisting us on several occasions. The hotel could benefit from an expanded pool deck, since there is great demand for chairs. But it does offer convenient access to the beach. We look forward to a return visit next year.

The recently updated rooms are very nice and comfortable. The location is exceptional - right on the beach and a short walk to restaurants and other attractions. Our pool assistant Catherine was exceptional with a fun attitude and happy to help with towels, umbrella (for shade) as needed and water. Really enjoyed the stay there at the beginning of April - was terrific!
