“Love this hotel & location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

When I travel to South Beach this is the hotel of choice. Yes there are tons of other hotels to stay at, and I have, but this hotel is one of a handful that actually is on the ocean AND allows you to see the water! The pool is up high with minimal wire fence so you get un obstructed views of the beach and the all the people walking, jogging along the boardwalk. Staff is super friendly. Easy location to walk to everything, restaurants, shopping etc, yet just far enough away not to be crazy noisy. Great sun at the pool, which if you stay at other hotels you can notice some only get sun for a couple hours before the hotel next door blocks it. This locations allows you to turn your lounge chair at the pool and stare at the ocean all day or simply walk down to the beach and they have chairs and umbrellas for you. I've stayed at the W Hotel further North up the beach which was nice but you would never know you were next to the ocean as they wall off the hotel. Cant wait to return to the Marriott!

Room Tip: Email ahead of time to ask, nicely of course, for an upgraded room. They are happy to assist you pos...

The Marriott Stanton South Beach is a Marriott Rewards Category 9 hotel and everything about it lives up to that kind of expectation and level. The entire staff was very welcoming and courteous while doing their best to make sure you were comfortable and had everything you needed. As we had arrived via rental car, the valet service greeted us first and took care of our car, followed by the front door greeters. All welcomed us and assisted with our luggage. The front desk receptionist was very friendly and specifically thanked us for being Marriott Elite members and for our business. Although the hotel room was on the small side (which we knew about as it is a boutique-style hotel), it was very neat and trendy, with a private balcony view that overlooked the famous Miami South Beach. We headed to the pool and hung out there for a while. There are 2 separate pools with a hot tub right between them. Although the lounge chairs were all occupied, there is a constant churn of people and a pair opened up not too long after we got there. An active and friendly pool attendant then promptly prepared the chairs for us by putting down towels and asked if we had everything we needed. Great service. The evening was spent out and about South Beach. We decided to have breakfast at the hotel the next morning, and opted for the buffet over the a la-carte menu. The buffet spread was large and a custom omelette station was even available. We were very satisfied with the buffet's offerings. The gym provided a good amount of equipment, machines, and space, but it was nothing real exceptional, as it's just a hotel gym anyway. Upon checkout, we were thanked by all once again and we were on our way.

The hotel is definitely on the pricey-side, but then again so are all the other hotels located in South Beach. However, since it's a few blocks down from the famous Ocean Drive restaurant/bar district, it's quiet at night which was very relaxing and worth a stay. The private beach is steps away from the hotel. The service was great and the atmosphere fits the bill. We greatly enjoyed our entire experience there, and hope to re-visit sometime in the future.

Clean and beautiful property with attention to detail and customer service. Elizabeth took the time to show us around & listen to our story.

The front desk was quick to call us when the room was ready, valet and bellmen unpacked and moved 3 carts with so much patience and care.

Elizabeth even sent a small gift and hand written card for our anniversary!
I will come here again over the big properties because of the level of attention.
Unforgettable!

Room Tip: It is more expensive for an ocean view but so worth it.

Oceanfront at the best beach in the world. Most of the time the water in the Atlantic is 82 degrees. Visitors jump back and say, "That's hot water". More Hotels , Bars, Nightclubs, Restaurants, and incredible atmosphere for your happy. Your bed is the most comfortable, your room the most welcoming. The acomodations are luxurious. Cost $$$

Room Tip: Beachside great daylight view ocean & beach

Not a high rise so not your typical Marriott. Our room was oceanfront, but it seemed all rooms would have a decent view & small balcony. The room and bathroom were clean and spacious. Nice desk for working. The valet service was quick anytime we needed our car. Small, decent gym; but it had no view. Breakfast downstairs was super slow and unmemorable; I would suggest go elsewhere. My husband had a massage outside (on the side deck) and he thoroughly enjoyed it. Guys on the beach were quick to set up lounges, umbrella and towels for us. They had a play area for kids, with piles of sand for 'walls.' Front desk kindly gave us a very late check-out. The hotel is a bit of a walk from famous Lincoln Rd, but right across the street from some great restaurants (Prime, eg.). Would recommend this hotel without hesitation.

Room Tip: Request oceanfront.

This hotel has an excellent location, ocean front, and walking distance from many fine restaurants. Although it is owned by Marriott, it has the feel of a boutique hotel, and it is not very big box corporate, like most Marriotts. There is a Starbucks on site, and a great cafe (Big Pink) within walking distance. There is a playground for small children nearby also. The hotel was clean, modern, well decorated, and the staff was friendly. We rented two loungers and an umbrella on the beach ($39), which beat laying in the sand. Rooms go for around $300 a night, which is about average for the location. I felt it was well worth the money. There is a also a Kilwin's sweet shop with chocolates and ice cream on site. Valet Parking was $37 a night, so keep that in mind when totaling up your bill. Take your own beach umbrella, chairs, and a case of water, if you want to save a bundle.

The Marriott Stanton is a wonderful hotel. The way it's situated, every room has a balcony and a view of the ocean. The staff is awesome! The location is perfect at 2nd street, just south of all the hustle & bustle, yet within walking distance to any restaurant or bar. The rooms are awesome-crisp white linens, large flat screen tv and a great shower. The beds are very comfortable. Would highly recommend this hotel in south beach.
