“Worth another visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This was our second time staying here. We had reserved two king rooms accidently but they were able to change our second room to a double without any charge. Our request for early check in was accommodated luckily, only one room but that was better than none. Because we didn't get a phone call when the second room was ready, they gave us the access code for the upgraded wifi connection. The rooms were clean and newly renovated. The pool area was nice, with one pool for play and the other for relaxation (age 14 and older, unless with adult). The tiki bar by pool area serves Carrabas food, tasty. The $32 for valet parking allow you to come in and out as many times necessary, just call the front desk 10-15 minutes before needing the car. I will always check this hotel before choosing to stay anywhere else while in Miami Beach.

Great location and the facility my family stayed was new...Awesome hotel, great internet, pool area, food service and everything needed was in walking distance. The hotel is also connected to carabaos...They provide food into the pool area as well. This place was perfect after a spoiling cruise on Carnival

Room Tip: As for the new tower area 4th floor or higher pool/ beach side.

Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront is a great location!!! Rooms were a nice size and included a refrigerator. The poolside bar and Carrabba's restaurant was great. Your steps away from the oceanfront. Rafel the concierge was helpful in planning our daily activities. I would defiantly stay here again.

Room Tip: There is a great store/restaurant across the street to grab breakfast and snacks. Ocean view room i...

We wanted to stay in a Miami Beach art deco hotel. Unfortunately, they were all booked up or way over our price range. The Courtyard Miami Beach was a true find. It is originally the Hotel Cadillac - a 1950's art-deco style that has been renovated and transformed into a Courtyard by Marriott. They preserved the art deco look of the outside and in the lobby. So, it was a Courtyard by Marriott with character. There is a new tower behind the main lobby, which has a nice breakfast area/sitting area/bar, and the gym. The two pools are lovely. They were not crowded at all in the morning or late afternoon, but were busy in mid-day. It's right on the beach - you can rent chairs/umbrellas. It's beachfront area isn't as packed as some of the more famous resorts a short walk away. The ocean was calm and very blue.

Our room was cool. it was a city view in the original part of the hotel -- but it truly had a nice view of Miami, the waterway connecting Miami beach to the mainland, and of the art deco front of the hotel. The room was big and renovated into a very comfortable modern hotel room. A few people complained on trip advisor about the older part of the hotel -- but we had no problems. It did not smell of smoke as some people claimed.

The tiki bar (run by Carabbas) had good lunch food and nice tropical drinks, and they send a waiter out to the beach. All in all, we thought this was a great hotel. It had the feel and a lot of the amenities of a true resort (two pools, great beach with service on the beach, good pool-side bar), but without the costs of a high-end resort with all the resort activities fees they charge. Its within a 5 minute walk to the Fontanbleu, so you can go there for a fancy dinner, but not lose your shirt staying at teh Fontainbleu. We certainly will stay here again the next time we go to Miami. It would be great for families & couples (provided the couples don't want to partake in the crazy nightlife of Miami Beach. All that stuff is a short cab ride away, which was fine with us.)

Room Tip: We liked room 935. It was big & had views of the city.

We stayed at this Courtyard because I'm a long-time member of Marriott Rewards and as Platinum, get an upgrade if available. We had business at a gallery in SoBe, and wanted to be nearby for our meetings. First, the staff was GREAT! The front desk and the people who answered the guest services phone were all EXCELLENT - competent and friendly (one of them took care of a big mistake that Marriott central reservations made when I first tried to call with a question about my booking - Marriott central reservations were wrong and had incorrect info - but this hotel took care of it.) My room was very nice with balcony overlooking pool and ocean. The room was great, except that the carpet definitely needs to be replaced - I don't know if it was old, but it looked old and stained. But that's not something that the hotel management could change while I was there, so I didn't mention it until we were leaving. Besides that, everything was great and I would stay there again. Try to get a room with a view. And if you have problems with booking through Marriott, call the hotel directly as they will take care of you. Some of the best front desk, valet and concierge people I've met in my 500 nights at Marriott properties in the past 5 years. Thanks to the team at Cadillac Marriott.

Room Tip: High level with ocean view, balcony

Green Features: They seem to be going the way most large hotels are... doing what they can. However, it would be helpful if this hotel and others would very specifically mark recycle cans vs trash cans in the hotel rooms

While in Ft. Lauderdale on business, I decided to head down to south beach for a weekend. After deciding I didn't feel like spending 45,000 points to be on the beach, 35,000 to be near Espanola was good enough for me.

The customer service, from valet to check-in, to checkout, was fantastic. I truly felt welcomed and everyone on staff remembered me each time I came through the doors. They easily held up to my high Marriott standards.

My one and only complaint would be the alley view that I was stuck with, I guess making an earlier reservation might have ensured a street view.

Stayed here for two nights.

Checked in and given a room overlooking the air conditioning vents! Went back down to reception and was given another room no problem, overlooking the pool/beach this time (6th floor) with balcony, at the same time there was also another customer complaining and requesting another room. The second room was next to the lift (this lift stopped service at 11pm so wasn't a problem), clean although limited space, very comfy bed, plenty of storage space, small fridge, safe etc. Standard bathroom, again clean, nothing special though.

The lobby area was very modern but this theme didn't run throughout and certainly not in the bedrooms which was a shame, the rooms, although nice/clean do need updating.

Pool area was good, busy during the day, lovely to sit out on a night. Also a gym on site. The hotel in general appeared quite lively, people along the corridors during the day but was quiet at night.

Although this was beachfront location it wasn't as central as we would have liked, walk a few streets back and the area doesn't look that nice, not that many restaurants nearby other than next door and over the road. Taxi to Ocean drive cost approx. $10.

Not likely to return
