We stayed at the Courtyard both before and after a cruise. We arrived a couple of days early to get over the time change and just generally to relax. The desk staff was super helpful in advising where to go and what to do in Miami Beach, the restaurant staff were friendly and funny and the food was very good.
As always a Courtyard bed is a comfortable bed. The only drawback in our first stay was that we were on a higher floor in the tower - when in the bathroom you can hear all the noise from the Dolphin Expressway AND all the planes flying over. During our second stay we were awoken just after 4 a.m. by an announcement in the room that there was no emergency and we could go back to what we were doing. A few minutes later, the fire alarm rang in our room and we evacuated. There was no one guiding the guests, who all lingered in the lobby. We went into the courtyard/pool area and never actually had anyone come and tell us it was okay to return to our room. Because of this, we slept in the next day. We went downstairs to get some breakfast and came back to find that our room keys had been deactivated, despite it still being before check out time. Fortunately the housekeeper let us in to get our bags.
It's also a bit awkward to get into the complex from the Expressway - we spent almost $10 in a taxi getting from the off-ramp into the hotel parking lot.
None of these things would deter us from staying again.
