We recently stayed at the Marriott Stanton South Beach Hotel (late April 2014) and I can quite honestly say that this hotel provides the friendliest service of any place I've ever stayed. From the front desk, to the restaurant, to the beach, to the cleaning staff, every single person was approachable, sincere and willing to do anything to help. At most places you are lucky to get a person or two, but here it was everyone. Made the stay that much more enjoyable. The hotel was beautiful with pristine views of the ocean and City from the rooms. I would definitely recommend staying here. We travelled with 3 children under 5 years of age, and they loved it too. Will definitely return. I must add, that the mattress in the rooms are the most comfortable hotel mattresses anywhere.
