“Great Place for the Money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Just spent a week there with my wife and again a great place. Staff are the most friendly of any hotels I've stayed at, and I stay at a lot. The construction going on doesn't effect the rooms from a noise perspective, we had an ocean view and it was quiet, but the pool area really is noisy throughout the day. Great hotel for the money overall.

The down sides; during construction they charge you $20/day for two lounge chairs on the beach and an umbrella (this should be free to guests for now IMO), Starbucks lines are long and the hotels house coffee is not very good at all (never has been for the 7 plus yrs I've been staying here).

Room Tip: Try the fresh squeezed orange juice at breakfast, it's to die for.

Checked in the night before a short cruise. We walked in and knew the Internet rate. Asked for that rate and was told I needed to use the computers in the lobby to book. After booking online went back to the clerk with the reservation number. She knew I was looking for a room that would accommodate the 3 of us. Gave us a room that had 2 queen size beds and a nice large sitting area. I would definitely stay here again. We walked the broad walk in morning. Had dinner in outside bar. Staff was super nice!

Great hotel, nice, clean, and well kept. Modernized room, very comfortable beds, high end TV, upgraded nice restroom. Room was great.

Construction project was too noisy for my family, we couldn't use the pool, so we walked to the beach. Boardwalk and beach are excellent, cannot beat it. Construction was a drag, but we knew this from the Marriott website so we were expecting it.

Best part of the stay was Carrabas restaurant off the lobby & room service. Excellent food. Don't bother ordering the pizza from the flyers - we did and for a few extra bucks you can get high end quality food.

Staff friendly and helpful. Valet parking $32 but very convenient and parking in Miami Beach has gotten difficult.

Overall, this hotel has been the best bang for the buck in all aspects out of the many places we've stayed. If the construction wasn't going on, it would have been our best stay. So we are really looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: Higher floor during construction. We were in the south tower 8th floor. No construction noise what...

We stayed here for 7 nights after our Caribbean Cruise. We were considering the Fountain Bleu, Eden Roc, the Blue Moon and the Marriott full service right in South Beach. We decided to stay here and we are SO GLAD WE DID. We were fully aware of the construction going on next to the pool before we made our reservation and since we were going to hang out at the beach during the day, we did not care. The construction is going on next to the pool to build a new tower. While it affected our view somewhat you could still see the ocean and beach from our room (9th floor oceanfront) which we were happy with. If you looked straight down, of course you could see the construction, but the hotel fully disclosed it was going on and we made the conscious decision to stay there so it was okay. The room was very clean and well maintained. The elevator lifts are a bit noisy and that kept us awake unless we turned the air fan on and then it was fine. We loved our oceanfront view so much that we didn't want to give it up to move to a room away from the elevator. The staff at this hotel are awesome. If you stay here, see Marcus at the Beach who manages the chairs and umbrellas. He took wonderful care of us and is a great asset to the Marriott Corporation. Also, Reynaldo at the Valet Staff was amazing. Every day he had a smile for us and new information or place to send us. He even negotiated our cab ride back to the airport and got us a discounted flat rate with the cabby. Infact, the entire Valet Staff makes this hotel reflective of its former grandeur. They are so friendly and jump at the chance to help you. I don't think we ever touched the front door during our entire 7 days there... they are constantly at that door opening it up for you whether you are going or coming. Finally, Efraim at the Front Desk took real good care of us upon check in and throughout our stay. The hotel is located at the north end in Miami Beach only a few streets away from where South Beach begins. We loved the location!! Quiet when we wanted it to be, but close enough to get us where we wanted to be during the day when we weren't at the beach. Bike Rental racks are right outside the hotel and will get you wherever you need to go. The bus stop is right outside the hotel as well and for $2.00 a person you can go anywhere up and down the strip. It was so convenient. Finally, taxis are abundant and parking is obsolete so renting a car is not suggested and plus you don't need it. Be sure to check out the Tiki Bar off the beach which has great food, service and views!!!!

A Very Happy Guest,
R Wright.

First the good bits. Fantasctic Art Deco facade, great beach location, handy for public transport. Safe quiet area. Best of all the staff! The bad bits? The hotel is more than a little shabby and in need of complete refurbishment in most areas. The rooms are clean but basic and the decor uninspiring. We booked for 11 nights and it took us 4 attempts to get a room that we could get a good nights sleep in . We were aware of the construction before we booked but that's not the problem. Noisy external air con and lifts plus road noise at the front. The south side room we ended up in was ok. Nice touches are free coffee in the lobby and occasional free ice cream. It's a pity this hotel could be so much nicer if it was brought back to it's "Cadillac" days splendor and i hope the "suits" at Marriott HQ are able to put the hotel back to it's original condition for the benefit of future clients and the great staff.

Room Tip: The south side rooms are the quietest and you get a partial sea view from the balcony

There is construction!!! Beware of the tower that they are constructing at the hotel that will be impossible to miss.

If you are going to Miami Beach and expect a "Miami" pool scene - look elsewhere. The construction is at the pool.

If you are going to Miami Beach to enjoy a beach view from your hotel - look elsewhere. The construction of the tower dominates your view.

I happened to be going for business....so I was away from the hotel during the day. But if I travelled to Miami with my family for some R&R....and arrived to the major construction underway, I would have freaked.

Also note that the construction is supposed to end at 5:00PM everyday. Of course, it doesn't. It continues well into the 6:00 hour.

Room Tip: Go elsewhere.

Dear Viajero S,

Thank You for staying with us while in Miami Beach. Our current project will truly enhance the look and feel of the hotel and we are excited about the future. The views from the room are still very enjoyable with no obstruction. In fact the project has not reached the lowest floor so views from the northeast portion of the building are great. We also obide by the city mandate to stop work each day by 6pm, however on most days the work is stopped by 430pm. We have not a day run later than 430pm in quite some time. Lastly, we try our best to minimize any disruption and we know that the future of the property will be great once all is completed.

We hope to see back,

Best Regards, Joseph LaFleur

We stayed here the day before leaving on a Bahamas Cruise. We wanted to spend the day in Miami to see the beach, shops and restaurants. This hotel used to be the Cadillac Hotel and is an older hotel. It was not super fancy but the bed was wonderful and the room was very clean. We had an oceanfront room with a balcony that was worth the extra money-great sunrises. It is right next to the boardwalk on the beach which made it easy to walk down the beach to South Beach. There is construction going on at this time so the week days can be noisy while they are working. We would definitely stay here again.
