Decided to go this hotel despite all the reviews complaining about the airplane noise (and occasionally also a train). Major reason to do so where the favorable price (up to 6 persons can stay in the double bed& bathroom penthouse suite !), the Marriot/ Residence Inn quality and the location (not far from airport, on walking distance from Wall Mart and close to 3 malls (Dolphin, International & mall of America). Staid 3 nights and no train passed while the airplane noise wasn't too bad (for me) if in the room with the door shut. The major con's for this hotel were the fact that not all suites on 2nd floor had elevator access and when raining the only place where you basically don't get wet is in your room or the lobby area. By extending the roof's a significant % of the "hall ways" can easily be kept dry so your feet get less wet and dirty when you enter your room. Also some of the suites (building 8 & 9)need to be accessed via the walkway of 82nd avenue; when stepping out the room you are basically on the street.
Rooms were large and clean, swimming pool clean but a little cold (but - in my experience - not unusual for the Miami hotels), the hot tub was better than of the Residence inn by Marriot Miami airport, the exercise room had only 2 treadmills,1bike and 1 elliptical machine, but no weights and no math's to do floor exercise although the space is sufficient for it. Check in/out was fast and hotel staff very helpful and friendly. Complmentarry hot Breakfast was good and the food at the managers reception (Monday thru Thursday) is sufficient to fill your stomach till the free breakfast in the morning.
Overall we got the expected Residence Inn /Marriot quality, while the price is less than other competing hotels in the Doral area. If you have a car, don't have problems with airplane noise, need a kitchen in your room, need to stay in this neighborhood and are on a limited budget than this is the place to stay.
