I can't say enough about this property!
We wanted oceanfront, art deco, close to South Beach, and affordable (by Miami standards) and this hotel was perfect.
We were five minutes from South Beach by car but removed from the craziness and hustle bustle of nightlife on Ocean Drive. Yet, the surrounding area was not deserted like some other areas more north on Collins Ave. There was an eat- in deli across the street, other hotels nearby, and a nice buzz of people and taxis coming and going. We felt totally safe in this area in both day and night.
With this location on Collins Avenue and 39th St., you are also about two blocks from Arthur Godfrey Road which easily puts you on 95 going north or south so it's a good jumping off point to other areas.
We had an oceanfront room with a small balcony and an incredible view of the ocean, beach, and gorgeous pool area. The room was very clean, updated, and yet I still got the art deco "feel" from the shower curtain print to the color choice of bed linens.
We enjoyed lunches on the beach or by the pool from the in-house restaurant, Carrabas. The food was excellent and the delivery person was prompt and pleasant. In fact, all service personnel at this hotel couldn't have been nicer or more helpful from the front desk staff to the valet parking attendants.
We did have to pay for beach chairs and umbrellas which resulted in an extra $50 per day charge for our family. It seems there is a company called Blue Fin set up on the beach that provides this service, not the hotel. However, we were able to put the charges on our hotel bill and considering that the average price of our room in season was around $350, we weren't complaining. We were enjoying the same beach and sun as others in more expensive nearby properties.
I remember this property from years ago as The Cadillac Hotel. It was nice to see the sign was still displayed and that Marriott has embraced the hotel's art deco past but updated it for the present. .We knew we would be pleased choosing a Marriott and we were not disappointed!
We would definitely stay here again on another trip to Miami Beach!
