“Nice hotel, great service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Nice hotel, lovely location right on miami beach. Room decorated to a very high standard. Shame about the pool renovations but the hotel supplied free umbrella, towels and sunbeds on the beach which was fine. Highlight of the trip was all the wonderful staff who made us feel so welcome and were really helpful when it came to local knowledge and advice. NB. You can park on the street meters for $10 a day rather than paying for valet parking to save a bit of money.

We always stay at a Courtyard by Marriot, because I know what to expect... attentive personnel, great rooms and nice amenities.... NO SURPRISES. Well my family was certainly SURPRISED with this Marriot on our summer vacation. The website does not mention the ear piercing construction sounds, beeps and banging. It's just casually mentioned when you check in.
Our wakeup call were construction noises or jackhammer rattling us right out of bed at 8:00A.M. every morning.
When we went to the pool, we could not relax because you can't simply can't get used to the construction noise. It will be a great Ocean Front Tower but Marriot needs to do the right thing. I will refrain from further commentary since Marriot has an opportunity here to compensate myself and future vacationers with some compensation for their woes.
The location is perfect and there is great service with a smile, but please do better Marriot.

Steve

Dear SKR1123,

Thank You for choosing our property during your visit to Miami Beach. I would be more than happy to speak with you regarding your stay; I can be reached at 305-538-3373. Our property expansion project is posted on our website (on each phase of the booking process) and all other booking engines since April 2012. Our project is set to finish in late August 2013 and the current phase has very little noise to the hotel guest. I do apologize for the excessive noise.


Best Regards

We stayed at Courtyard pre cruise in April and had a wonderful stay. We love the location and the staff was great. The Tiki Bar was a nice place to relax in the evenings. The beach was great too. I know the construction is a bother to some but it was not to us. Why use the pool when you have a fabulous beach right there. We enjoyed our stay so much we will be back pre cruise again in April 2014!!

We stayed here in June and were a bit disappointed that we couldn't use the pool which was a main reason why we booked this hotel. However, the hotel was very nice and made up for it with free breakfast. The reception staff was very helpful at all times.

Yes there was construction work going on, however i knew about this before hand.
The location is great if you don't want to be at the Southern End of Miami. The beach is right in front of the hotel which is a big plus.

The hotel is a bit pricey but all hotels in Miami are expensive. There is a bus stop outside the hotel which is very convenient when you want to catch a sightseeing bus.

The best part is the soft towels. This hotel has the softest towels I have ever experienced. I whish every hotel would be like that.

The breakfast is a bit basic but hey, if you don't like it - go somewhere else. I enjoyed the fresh waffles every morning; the chef does a great job making delicious omelettes and waffles. He really looks after you. A very nice and friendly guy, shame I forgot his name (a biggish guy).
Maybe the hotel could provide fresh cream for the waffles, then they wouldn’t be that dry.
Otherwise, a great stay.

Just come home from this hotel June 2013 jack hammers, cement mixers, JCB all going on around the pool area. If you have booked already change it now...

Inside is okay it's the outside could not sit by the pool or have lunch at the Tikki bar due to building work. No where else to sit so we went to the beach, However you could even hear the noise on the beach !!!

Dear superhousekeeper,

Thank You for your staying with us during your visit from the United Kingdom. We do apologize for any disruption created by our latest expansion efforts. Our project concludes this summer and will truly elevate this hotel to new levels. Unfortunately there are growing pains (such as noise), which is why we alert our guests via our website, so they feel informed before arrival. Unfortunately I do not have your booking information so we could follow-up with your tour operator. Lastly, our project has been since early 2012 with many different phases, our current phase does not include much noise, and our team stops work each day by 5pm. I am sorry you did not enjoy your time, we hope you provide us another opportunity in the future.

Best Regards

Joseph LaFleur

This hotel is nicely located within Miami Beach and has a nice pool and excellent beach access. Carrabba's Grille is located onsite and has a very good menu. You should be aware there is significant construction at the hotel where they are building a new ocean front tower. This is not published anywhere on the Marriott website. While it is briefly mentioned upon check in, the impact cannot be underestimated. If you are by the pool or Tiki Bar, you will hear and experience the construction. I would not recommend this hotel for the price they are asking until the construction is completed. Again, hotel itself is good, staff is friendly, but wait until the work is over.

We stayed here 6-19 pre-cruise and 6-24 post cruise. The construction going on is very noticable but everyone was so friendly and accomodating. Our 6-19 stay was right outside the construction site and very noisy. So when checking out the manager gave me his card and said when we come back just ask to be away from current construction. We when we came back, we got kicked off our cruise ship early due to the Miami Heat parade and got to the hotel at 7:00 a.m., they got us right in with ready rooms. They were much more quiet. Thank you everyone, staff was great.

Room Tip: Room 511 and 717 was great
