Residence Inn by Marriott Miami Aventura Mall
Ranked #2 of 8 Hotels in Aventura
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 4, 2012

We stayed here for 3-4 weeks and this place is terrible for a business traveller, just because there are bus loads of tourists around and everything gets packed. Its not easy to get in or get out.

The property and pool are beautiful, very different from other residence inns. The mall is walking distance and so is the walk around the golf course which makes it valuable if you dont have a car. Otherwise there isnt much you can do without a car.

The staff doesnt speak a lot of english so it has very hard to communicate.

Stayed: October 2011, traveled on business

After our trip to Bahamas we took five days in Miami to end our vacation and stayed 5 nights at The Residence Inn Aventura Mall. Why I love Residence Inn? it is not by all means a luxurious hotel some are a little bit old (check my review on the one in San Diego) but every Residence have a kitchen and living area. My family and I can have breakfast and late snacks, this is convenient because you save a lot but also because you can eat healthier.

The Residence Inn Aventura Mall is really nice with a lot of parking area (no charge). I took a two bedrooms suite, it has a lot of space, two bathrooms, living area with a sofa bed, flat screen HD TV, the kitchen with microwave, sink, oven a stove top, full fridge and a table that can accomodate 4. Each bedroom has one double bed, flat screen HD TV, small working table and a closet. You have one safe box. Included in the price you get WIFI and cable Internet (works pretty well) and breakfast buffet that we don´t try it anymore. It has eggs, yogurth, cereal, fruit etc. but it is always packed, sometimes it is difficult to find a table.Some people come to the buffet in their pijamas and take breakfast to their rooms. My daughter always goes to get yogurth for her and coffe for her dad.

House keeping did a great job. Front desk staff saw them at check in and check out they where nice.

A great plus with this property is the location, if you are driving you will find it in the middle of almost everything and in a pretty and upscale neighborhood. Aventura Fl. is close to Ft. Lauderdale and Bal Harbour but not far from Miami, Miami Beach.

You have Aventura Mall behind within walking distance (0.300 miles) from the Hotel. This Mall is really nice with some upscale stores and most of the regulars. Food court and some restaurants. You also have an AMC cinemas in case that more than 50 TV chanels in your room are not enough.

If you are going to take advantage of the kitchen behind the Hotel you have a Publix Grocery Store that has everything also a CVS pharmacy in the same premises. A couple blocks away (not at walking distance) there is a Whole Foods store, Target and Best Buy.

Sawgrass mills one of the largest Outlet Malls in America it´s 22 miles NW

The only complain I can thing of is a strong desinfectant smell in the hallways, the good thing you don´t get it in the rooms.

Last advice, if you are planning to visit this area your best option is to fly to Ft. Lauderdale Intl. Airport (10 miles from the Hotel) Miami Intl is a little bit farther (21 m)

The room was clean, the breakfast was good, for a longer stay, the room was perfect. Can't give it a 5 because that is usually reserved for super stays.

residence inn is great for an extended stay bc all of their rooms are equipped with a full kitchen (except the 1 bedroom which doesn't have an oven). the furniture and decor has that modern feel like most new residence inn properties.
they also provide a small buffet style breakfast daily. having the same style scrambled eggs can be dull, and this is when the kitchen comes in handy. they also provide utensils.

on the not so pleasing side is the light snacks they offer. ate the wings once
and it was unpleasent. i just opted to purchase my own snacks.

the front desk staff is pleasant but can be unavailable at times which is understandable bc this is a busy hotel. the maintance and housekeeping staff are ok, and difficult to communicate with if you don't speak spanish or creole. i would often call the front desk for towels and had to wait hours before they were brought and at times, it wast what i had asked for.

the queen bed was comfortable, but the carpet in the room appeared old and had a damn almost urine smell. since this is a pet friendly hotel, i wouldn't be surprised if someones pet peed on the carpet and the housekeepers failed to do a deep cleaning.

despite this the hotel is in a very nice area, and it's literally a hop and a skip away from the aventura mall. if you can survive the awful drivers, and tolerate the daily traffic then this place is convenient.

i was more than happy to get away from ll that traffic, but still had an overall good stay at this residence inn.

This hotel was a great location near the Aventura Mall. It is close enough for a walk if you are very careful about traffic but don't take anyone with mobility issues with you across the back parking lot because it is too far and sometimes too many cars.  A Publix grocery store and CVS pharmacy are directly behind the hotel but there is a fence separating the parking lot from the alley of the shopping strip (only 3/4 of the way) so it is also a  walk out and around to the front entrances.

The hotel was a good base for a quiet nights sleep in a comfortable bed . We didn't make use of the microwave, stove or refrigerator, or dishwasher. The large flat screen tv that turned toward the couch or the bed was great but hard to hear because of the little closet with the air handler in it. Great white noise for sleeping but really hard to hear the tv.

Bathroom shower had good pressure and the large vanity counter and large mirror were appreciated. We used the sleep sofa one night and had to make the bed up from a bag in the closet. Call down for another blanket if you need one, the blanket is a light foam one that doesn't warm as well as the one on the bed in air conditioning.

Breakfast was great with staff  always cleaning tables and refreshing the food and fruit - even at 15 minutes before closing time! That is rare! Hot warming pans were there for eggs,biscuits and gravy,sausages and oatmeal. Oranges, apples and bananas plus pineapple one day and melon the next were offered in bowls. Toast, mini muffins and waffles were available plus 3 kinds of juice. I appreciated having a soda machine available for my kick start of diet coke in the morning. Yogurt and dry cereal were also available.

The pool was located off the breakfast room and  just off the parking lot with towels offered in a wicker chest.  We asked for a recommended beach close by and spent a nice 3 hours at Sunny  Isles as recommended by the front desk, as a close drive.

We  were close enough to the airport to pick up our daughter who arrived on day 3.  We were very  happy with our stay. We used this location to explore Miami while waiting for our daughter to fly into Fort Lauderdale. We stayed an extra night and then ... relocated for one night to Miami for our Miami cruise. We will hope to come back here next year for our March Fort Lauderdale trip.

I stayed for 3 nights with my wife and daughter. The hotel is next to the Aventura Mall and not a long drive to the Sawgrass Mills outlet near Fort Lauderdale. Service was very good. Room was very clean. The breakfast was also very good. The room was large enough and the kitchen was a plus. I think the hotel is perfect for a short stay, specially if you are planning to do some shopping. I recommend it and would stay again.

The Residence Inn is literally at the parking lot of Aventura Mall, and located in a pleasant area, plenty of trees and tracks where you can walk or run. The hotel offer large and clean rooms, and a decent breakfast. The place is a favourite for Brazilians, so expect them to count for more than 50% of the guests at any time. This add a touch of happiness to the place, because Brazilians love Miami and Florida, and they share their experiences at breakfast time.
This time there were many Haitians working at the hotel, and I found them very helpful, and visibly happy for being there - I imagine how much suffering these people have experienced during the last years in a country that is falling apart, and where hope is fading out.
I made my reservation directly at the hotel, through the Internet. It worked well. Checking in early might be a problem, because the hotel is usually full. More likely you will be able to go to your room only by 4pm. So be prepared for that. Although taxis and buses are easily found, I would suggest to rent a car if you're a guest at this hotel - you will be able to do more and get the most from Miami and surroundings.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at higher floors ... and check if the (free) wi-fi is working well at your room.
