“Expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stayed with two friends on the 28th floor with spectacular views of the bay. One of my friends was in classes all day and needed an early breakfast. In 5 days there was never a room service form. None of the maids spoke English. They tried hard but many things were never done. The sheets were changed only after I piled them on the floor.
Front lobby staff and the bellhops were friendly and helpful.
I would not stay here again because I expect a higher level of service for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a bay front room.

Recently spent four days for a conference. This is an outstanding hotel in downtown Miami. I don't know why you would stay anywhere else for business or pleasure. Rooms are large, modern and comfortable. Excellent work space with fast, free wi-fi. Beds are very comfortable and rooms include large wall mounted TV. Nice bathroom with separate large bath and shower, with another TV inside the mirror. Very nice views. Service and food was solid. Only weak point was coffee, not too terrific, but drinkable. In summary, if you need to be in this location for business, pleasure or to catch your cruise ship, and the price fits your budget, then stay here.

Super room, very well appointed. Staff, including Valentina at the front desk were well trained, sincere and delivered personal service. The hotel is very convenient to all downtown events.
The HD tv, in room PC, free wireless was great. Valet parking is expensive and slow, a hazard of a city location.

Room Tip: Use concierge level Bayview for a terrific view of Biscayne Bay and the city

This hotel is absolutely lovely. The rooms and beds in particular are the best. The rooms are set up with a computer and small office set up. Huge bathtub, awesome soft carpet and huge tv.

The staff are hard working and very nice.

We stayed here on our Marriott points - a good place to spend them ;)

Only thing that I thought was okay not great was breakfast - low selection and not that of a 5 star.

Tip - if you want to save money stay at the Hyatt across the street. Not as nice but still quite good.

The hotel rooms were beautifully furnished with every luxury you would expect from a top end hotel. Beautiful views and great food rounded out the experience. I would definitely return for a work meeting in Miami. Probably not the best local if you are vacationing.

Although I did not stay in this Hotel, I had the opportunity to spend the day with some friend that where. I took advantage of the invitation get away, relax and spend the day in good company. I was very impressed with energy of this Hotel. The whole place has a great vibe to it. Staff was friendly, hotel was clean and my friend's room was beautiful with some amazing views. My husband accompanied me during the morning for a couple's massage. Not only was the couples massage room spacious, and relaxing but I received from my therapist the best deep tissue massage I've ever had!!! They also have this really great tea (I had never seen the brand before) in their lounge area, . Since I live in Miami year-round, I didn't have a need to lay out on the beach, but did spend some time at the pool. The pool deck is very nice and modern. We finished the day by having dinner at a local ceviche place which was walking distance from the Hotel. I really enjoyed my day here and will definetely be recommending this hotel to family and friend that plan to visit Miami.

My wife and I stayed in this hotel after returning from a cruise. This is a new hotel, and it shows. We had a room on a high floor (27) with a nice view of the bay. The room was very spacious and very comfortable. There was a big HDTV (over 42 inches) across from the bed, and there was a TV in the bathroom mirror! The bathroom had a full tub as well as a separate stand-up shower with two showerheads. The room also had a keyboard and terminal with internet access to use in case you didn't bring your computer. It was a little slow, so we used our PC with the ethernet cable that was provided.

The gym was really nice. All modern equipment and very clean. We had a great workout. We also took a tour of the spa, but it was very pricey, and the staff had an attitude.

The pool area was nice, but we were there on a chilly day. In the winter months, it appears that high rises block the sun from the pool area for much of the day.

The food in the restaurant (345, I think) for breakfast was very good, but the service was pretty bad (very slow or non-existent).

The bellhops were very courteous and on time when we were about to leave. It was also nice that they did call us a cab, rather than try to make us go in a car service.

Room Tip: Try to get on a high floor that faces the river / bay area, where boats and yachts come by.
