It's very new, not even open yet, and I am sure quite high end. The beach is very good. Good choice for a family stay. There is a nice boardwalk along the beach in back. Those are the plus points. The area is safe though the road in front is quite busy.

It is not the most walkable of neighborhoods, almost a mile from south beach, a mile+ to Lincoln Road Mall or Ocean Drive, etc. You'll have limited choices within walking distance. If being closer to shops and restaurants is a priority then look at Marriott Stanton in the 100 block of south beach.

Thank you for your help

how is the stanton ? maybe more like a regular marriott - on the map it looks like the stanton is very much to the south

bike rental is included in the edition so maybe we can bike on the boardwalk down to the resturants

Yes, Marriott Stanton is a bit south, but it is walking distance to many well known restaurants, the south end of Ocean Drive, a great park (South Pointe) and close to the 25c local bus for reaching the rest of south beach. It also has many room with ocean views.

That said, there is no doubt the Marriott Edition will be a higher class of hotel, and very new.

Re. bikes, unluckily biking is not permitted on the boardwalk, though it is possible south of 23 Street where the boardwalk turns into a concrete "Beachwalk", so you could walk your bikes about half a mile then bike the rest of the way south. I don't think it's safe to bike along Collins Ave esp with a 4 year old.
