We used Marriott points for a long weekend in Miami. When we arrived at the hotel, we asked if we could be upgraded to the concierge level. Not only did the front desk staff upgrade us to the concierge floor, but also gave us a suite without additional cost. The staff was overwhelmingly hospitable and were available with helpful information and great service. The hotel is close to the Riverwalk and Knight Center metromover (which is free to all passengers), making it easy to go to Brickell, Vizcaya and other locations. The room was immaculate and the hotel was beautiful. The views from the rooms are spectacular. Both the bellman and the concierge were quite helpful in suggesting restaurants, transportation alternatives and other activities to do. Walking around downtown is quite easy, although there is quite a bit of construction on the streets, closing many sidewalks. It felt safe in the area at night as well. There is a very small bar upstairs which we tried; it was nice, but nothing special. The pool on the 19th floor is quite large for a hotel pool as is the workout area. Be aware that the sun is hidden at times behind the other tall buildings so great if you want shade, not so great if you want to bake in the sun.
