“Great hotel, nice staff and interesting location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, the hotel is almost new, great rooms. The parking is aside the Dolphin Mall hotel so there is unlimited parking space. The staff was very nice.

The lobby is great, the free Wi-Fi has great throughput.

I have 2 cons:

1. two nights in a row I wanted to buy a bottle of water and they weren't cold but I had ice from the ice machine so no big deal.

2. In other courtyards you have a complimentary gift from the store not in this.

BTW, I think it could be great from marketing perspective to add $10 or $15 to the room rate and offer free breakfast as many other Marriot hotels around the globe. There is a Starbucks open since 5:30 am in the 19th Street (like 2 or 3 minutes driving).

We left from there to Orlando and as the hotel is very close to Turnpike you could be on the road in 2 minutes. So it is great for lot of people from Latin America that want to start their trip in Miami and then move to the amusement parks area in Orlando.

The hotel is in the route for airplanes landing in the MIA Airport so be prepared about the airplanes noises in the night, but for me it wasn't big deal

Good average hotel at the Dolphin Mall. Ideal for a shopping spree to Miami.
Rooms good and clean. Breakfast very good and possibility to buy drinks and small snacks.

At the Mall there are various restaurants for dining out.

Visited on shopping trip with friends. Hotel conveniently located next to main shopping mall. Decent spacious rooms with coffee maker. The gym small and under equipped however. The pool is decent. Overall would recommend for business or shopping trip.

The hotel is great for shopping at Dolphin Mall as it is located steps away. However it could use some updating. It smelt moldy and smoky. In comparison to the Courtyard by Aventura Mall and the one near to the airport at LeJeune Road it is not as nice

We aim to give our guests the best service and a home away from home, and I hope we are able to serve you again in a near future. Once again thank you for your time, for your review and for being a valued guest. We appreciate you!

The hotel is very close to the mall entrance, few minutes walk. The room was clean, spacious and comfortable. The furniture is in good shape. They provided us with pack and play for our baby to sleep in. The breakfast is not included, costs 14 bucks. Special touch that we liked is the beautiful reef aquarium in the lobby.

This Courtyard is located in the parking lot of the Dolphin Mall. Very short walk to shopping and dozens of restaurants. The location is a standard Marriott and is a very short drive to the airport depending on traffic. I was there for three nights and the hotel was pretty full. My room at no closet, no mini fridge, and absolutely no view. The bed was comfortable and internet service reliable. As a Marriott "frequent flyer" I was hoping for an upgrade, but no such luck. I am treated much better by Hilton properties even though I have less stays with them. The staff was very good and I think this is a good place to spend the night.

Room Tip: Get a third floor room facing away from turnpike.

Dear Jderb,
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our hotel. I truly apologize we didn't have an upgrade available! We only have 5 Suites in the hotel and in a busy week sometimes they get full since the beggining, I hope the next time you join us we are able to accomodate the upgrade request.
I do have exciting news to share, by the end of the year our hotel will have mini-fridges in every room and that should add to your convenience! I am really glad the staff was very nice during your stay as we strive to give you, our valued guest, a home away from home.
We look forward to having you back with us in a near future. Thanks again for your business and for taking the time to share your feedback; we greatly appreciate it!

We stayed here one night on a layover and this is a nice hotel. Well maintained and nice rooms at a good price. It's great that Dolphin Mall is so close. Gives you a lot to do. Staff are very nice and helpful.
