“Don't Judge the Book by It's Cover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

In the company of many older run down establishments, the Marriott & Courtyard near the airport actually appears to be one of the same. Much to this traveler's satisfaction, the interiors of both are modern, clean, and completely up to date. As other reviewers have already stated, the service quality is quite good. Bonus...........Starbuck's in the lobby.

Room Tip: Even rooms on the runway side are quiet.

My husband and I spend 1 night at this hotel as we were in transit. We had previous stayed at the Marriott at the same complex. We stayed here as it was cheaper than the Marriott. Overall we were very happy with our stay. The staff were very accomodating they called taxis for us, received numerous packages for us and delivered them to the room, sent up a mini fridge (this had a fish smell I think the last person had fish in it). Overall thanks to the management, special thanks to Larry who assisted us during check in and was very helpful. The rooms were like standard Marriott rooms. Bathroom was a little dated but not a problem. It was very clean. We ate at the restaurant food was good however a bit pricey $60 for two people. The lobby area was really nice and spacious lots of lounge areas for hanging out and 3 computers with large screen and also free printing. Noticed that there were lots of shuttles to and from the airport. They have great shuttle service as the shuttle serves three hotels on the same complex. Would definitely stay there again as it very close to airport, frequent shuttle service and great staff.

Although this hotel is bare bones -- as airport hotels tend to be -- the facilities are of excellent quality, and well maintained (nice to have a ceiling light in the shower, for example). There are few meal options off the hotel campus, but two Marriott restaurants. Food is filling and decently prepared, but in no way a destination in itself. The fish tacos and chicken-bacon-tomato wrap were both rather bland, the onion rings and Ceasar Salad excellent. All in all, exactly what you need for a brief airport layover : well-kept physical plant, HD-TV, nice shower, comfortable clean beds, quick airport access, and decent food.

Not too happy about our experience at Courtyard MIA...! Hotel needs some improvements in my opinion, it shows its age quite a lot. Our room was nice, but what a (bad) surprise not to find any toiletries in the bathroom? No soap at all! Contacting the reception I was told to go down to collect some - in the end it was free but what a procedure is this (it was not a maid's mistake but Courtyard's policy)? When you spend over 140 bucks a night you don't consider bringing soap from home, and you are supposed to be pretty tired after a long haul flight and willing to have a shower. One more issue was the free wi-fi which did not work at all - but we had our laptop and could connect using the wired connection.
In the end it was a so-so experience, not 100% negative but I have experienced very nice Courtyards in the past, this is not at the same level, so come on Marriott, you can do better!

Excellent why? They moved when I needed it the most. I got in from another state with delay on the flight rushing to meetings in town on a tight schedule. I got to the hotel around noon, got a room and was in the room and on to the meetings in about 15 minutes. Oh and it took a whole ten minutes to get there from the airport.

Exactly what I needed. There is a restaurant inside the hotel but plenty of other options nearby or across the street. Even gas stations to fill up the rental car before you return at MIA.

Checkout was painless. Definitely preferred hotel in town for business.

Hi Donald,

Thanks for reviewing our hotel. At one point in our history, Courtyard's tag line was "The hotel designed for business travelers by business travelers." Although our slogans change, I am glad that you find that our promise to business travelers is unchanged.

We welcome you to stay with us again, soon! The next time you're in the building, please find me and say Hi!

Stayed here for one night after we missed our connecting flight. Close to airport with frequent shuttles running to and from airport. Also have a $11 round trip shuttle to dolphin mall but leaves every hr and we missed ours b/c the driver came too early and left and early. Checkin and checkout were seamless and we got upgraded to a great room in a quiet corner of the first floor. Gym was a great size. Would have liked an indoor jacuzzi bc it was raining but we did without. Starbucks inside and lots of access to big screen computers with internet. Wifi chopped in and out but it was free. Overall comfortable stay and were impressed with the rooms. room was 4104.

Room Tip: ask for rooms on first floor in the quiet area. we had 4104 and it has a king size bed and was tidy...

I hope that you'll stay with us again and see that we've improved the wireless internet service.

The location of the Courtyard Marriott, Airport Miami, is extremely convenient for travelers flying into Miami and for those leaving for cruises from the Port of Miami. A hotel shuttle is available to the hotel, early morning until almost midnight, running every 30 minutes from the airport, just a few miles away. The shuttle pick up is on the second level of the airport. You must however - flag down the solid, red, bus with white lettering, to stop for you; be careful, they'll run over you, they "zip" by quickly. There are several Marriotts in the area, get on the right bus. The "key word" for the drivers is "1201", as in Lejeune Rd. - English is at times, minimal.

This hotel is inside a gated hotel complex - alongside the Residence Inn and another "Marrott". Check-in is efficient, ( but beware, the key and the floor numbers don't always match. We stayed on the second floor, our room number was # 4227; just ask for directions. The restaurant is open until midnight for late arrivals. Also, there is a "market" next to the check- inn area that has a minimal supply of food and sundries available. There is a microwave available to heat "frozen" food purchases.

Rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. All "normal" supplies are in the rooms, as well as a coffee maker, blowdryer, and ironing board with iron. My daughter, a flight attendant, stays here with her flight crew when in Miami.

If you need to catch a cruise ship, the taxi rate is $25 to the Miami port, about 25 minutes away.
