Miami Airport Marriott
Ranked #51 of 127 Hotels in Miami
Reviewed November 12, 2012

An older Marriott but kept up extremely well in terms of decoration. Nice "campus" with other Marriott properties. Excellent quality of housekeeping. Attractive pool area. Outstanding staff at front desk and in Concierge Lounge. Pretty good soundproofing, but not best-of-class for an airport hotel. Great quality coffee in Conceirge Lounge, not the usual "Bold Beginnings" or other lower-grade stuff.

Big negatives: (1) Guests allowed in the Concierge Lounge in bare feet; no posted dress code for the lounge to prevent this -- apparently the lounge attendants are not empowered to gently inform guests to return with footwear. (2) On a cool and breezy night (thus no need for airconditioning constantly on), the airport shuttle van left idling beneath the canopy -- with neither driver nor passengers inside. Besides being wateful of energy, it provides a nasty first impression of the property as the engine is extremely noisy and reverberates. (3) Spa whirlpool in need of vacuuming, badly. (4) Houskeeping and maintenance staff need to be instructed to keep their voices down in the corridors--at an airport hotel people are trying to sleep all sorts of unusual hours and needless noise is, well, needless. All of the above negatives are within management's easy reach to solve, so let's hope that they get on it ,as that surely would increase my rating.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms facing Dolphin Expressway

From the outside, this Marriott doesn't look like much... sort of old looking and in need of sprucing up. The inside though was a surprise. The public areas (lobby, restaurant, hallways, Starbucks) have clearly been renovated and are quite nice. Never would've guessed/predicted it from the look on the outside. My room was smaller than the "usual" Marriott room these days. This is, perhaps, a result of the fact that the building is older than most. Still, the location is good if you're flying in/out of the Miami Airport... it's about a mile from the rental car center and just a little more than that to the terminal. They run shuttles from the airport every 15 minutes, too. There's one restaurant in the Marriott and a sports bar/restaurant in the Courtyard right next door. There's also a Residence Inn here on the same "campus." Nothing special, but perfectly functional and clean.

I recently spent a week at the Miami Airport Marriott and let me say it was overall a pretty nice stay. I was fortunate enough to get one of the new Pure rooms they have available and it was terrific. I don't need to go into too much detail but the room featured a air purifier, special bedding and several other things which certainly made an impression on me. I certainly hope Marriotts will soon start doing this at all their properties. The room was pretty fresh smelling and you didn't have the hotel-type odor that you get many times where cleaners and other smells prevail upon check-in. I would certainly recommend asking for one of these rooms when you arrive. It was well worth it.

This is one of the older Marriott properties and the rooms are on the smallish size as are the bathrooms. That was one of the downsides, but the other factors made it a minor issue.

The hotel is staffed by bilingual folks if that is a concern and I heard as much Spanish on my visit as I did English but that is to be expected in one of the world's biggest tourist stops, especially with people from South America.

It was a good stay and I would return. I should add the hotel offered a nice shuttle service to the airpoirt, every 15 minutes which was good.

Room Tip: Choose one of the Pure rooms if you can.

I believe this is the closest hotel to the airport & was only about 5 minutes away in the free shuttle service they provide. Pretty much your standard Marriot & provides everything you need for a good nights sleep. One surprising thing is that not all their staff speak English. The staff all spoke Spanish to each other & although I understand I have an accent (I am originally from the UK) & couldn't believe that one of the waitresses had to ask another in Spanish to come over & translate when we were ordering! Would still give them a good rating overall though as I agree this is a trivial point.

As a "in transit" hotel this takes a bit of beating, firstly it really is an airport hotel because it is close to the airport not 20 minutes away a la Newark. The bar serves good beer at good prices the rooms are comfortable and it is close enough to south beach that you can kill a few hours. Like Marriotts the world over it is good value for money probably the most reliable chain when in doubt.

This hotel is very near to Miami International airport, there are shuttle available from Airport to this hotel. The entrance and lobby gives a feel of the marriot class, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The check in does not more than a minute or so. The rooms are very nicely done and specially the quality of bed is such that after a long flight feels like heaven, any one can sleep like baby. The bathroom is great too. Overall a very satisfying experiance and value of money.

The room was fine. Quiet other than planes going by. Staff was friendly. My only complaint is that they charge you $14.95 to have wifi in your room, but anyone can walk in the lobby and use it for free. What a scam.
I did like the free shuttle to the airport.
