Residence Inn by Marriott Miami Aventura Mall
Ranked #1 of 8 Hotels in Aventura
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 18, 2013

This Residence Inn Hotel is very well located, across the street from the Turnberry Golf Course and less than 400 yards from Aventura Mall. The breakfast buffet is of average quality and the rooms are nice but extremely small. They have been increasing the prices to a current level that makes this hotel not a good deal for travelers. This hotel would be worth its rates if they would lower them by at least 40%.

Room Tip: Choose a room not facing the East. It's a noisy street.

We checked in around 5 pm. We had a 1 bedroom suite, living room, separate bedroom, kitchen with full size fridge, cooktop, microwave. We were only here for one night so we didn't make use of the kitchen but it was nice not have have to watch tv from the bedroom. The bathroom vanity was way too small for two people and that is one of my pet peeves. There was only one glass in the bathroom. I checked the kitchen and there were no similar glasses so I used a wine glass/goblet. There were some drawers but shelves would have been nice. And about those drawers. The top one had an area where the hair dryer was supposed to be. I'll get to that shortly. Why would you put a hair dryer in the top drawer? Anyway, the hair dryer was missing. On our way out for the evening, we told the front desk about it who said it would be taken care of. We then made the short walk to Aventura Mall. The hotel is in a great location, directly across from Turnberry and right next to the mall. So we get back to the room after about 3 hours and still no hair dryer. We tried calling the front desk but there was no answer. We went down to the desk to speak with someone and, about 10 minutes later, someone showed up with the hair dryer.

The furniture could use some updating but the suite itself was comfortable and in a good location. And parking is free.

We have stayed at this property every since since 2008 because of the convenient location. Since our last visit, the pool and hot tub have been retiled and the heating system upgraded, which we enjoyed every day despite the weather. The rooms are spacious and quiet, and our requests for additional towels was promptly met. Overall this hotel meets the needs our family during holiday vacation.

We have two complaints which keep us from seeing this property as anything above an average Marriott. First, the maintenance work takes place regardless of the effect on guests. For example, the hotel was full on New Year's Eve, a sunny and warm day. We would have enjoyed the afternoon at the pool except the staff was powerwashing the patio. It was loud, extremely messy and very intrusive as this is the only outdoor space at the hotel. Second, the staff is unable to accommodate heavy crowds at breakfast. At times, the breakfast room can only be described as chaotic. We found ourselves sending a member of our family down during the first few minutes if breakfast service to grab a few yogurts and bagels before the onslaught began. There is literally pushing and shoving once breakfast is underway. This occurs every time we visit so it's obviously not a fluke. We have never seen this at any other Marriott and we strongly suggest the management every year that the issue be addressed, but to date nothing has been done.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the boulevard side of the hotel the enjoy views of the area.

My wife & I stayed here last weekend due to its proximity to Aventura Mall. Its provides what you would expect from a Marriot....clean, friendly staff & good facilities. The mall is indeed a 2 minute walk from the front door. However there is one major flaw which would put me off ever staying here again....the set up of the air conditioning units. I am not quite sure who designed the hotel & why this problem is not mentioned in other reviews. However maybe it is a case that the air conditioning units in other rooms are 'stealth' like. Anyway, the problem is, the air conditioning unit is placed in a cupboard right next to the bed. Throughout the first night it woke us up every time it kicked in. Upon complaint the hotel staff advised us that this was a common problem in all rooms but they would have someone look at it to see if they could make it any quieter. They did indeed make it a little quieter but on the second night it still woke us continuously. I guess if you are used to sleeping next to a working air conditioning unit beside your bed, this won't bother you. For us, we are still confused as to why a hotel would structure a room like that?

Room Tip: Sleep outside, it will be quieter.

We were welcomed by a very helpful lady on reception! Nothing was too much trouble and even phoned us to ensure we were happy with our room! The room is very spacious with excellent cooking and washing facilities! Clean rooms with a seating area! Lovely surroundings and perfect for shopping at the Aventura Mall and Restaurants! Overall if I was back in Miami for a couple of nights for shopping i would stay here!

Spent 2 nights at residence inn Aventura Mall mid October 2012
Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Hotel was quite clean. The usual Marriott high standard.
Proximity to the Aventura Mall made shopping so easy and we also went to the food court several times for our meals. Nice swimming pool too.
All in all a great experience.

This is a decent property, I do like Residence Inns so I have the fridge/micro if I need it, even for short business stays. Thsi property was nice, and resonably clean, nothing super-special or outstanding....but I got a good deal & the proximity to my business event was close. I had the option of staying at the Trump Int'l, but for the points, I would stay here again. The Courtyard nearby looke OK as well. My only complaint is that the WIFi here is deplorable. Bring your own MiFi because the free WiFi would not even load a webpage like Yahoo.
