“Wonderful Property”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

Was on vacation with the family and wanted a hotel close to the Port of Miami. This property came highly recommended and I must say it was a good choice. It was more than I expected. The room was clean and the staff was very nice and accommodating. The restaurant here is also quite good. I would stay here again based on the experience I had here.

we had 3 nights here prior to joining our cruise ship. Had booked some months earlier and got a very good deal. It is only a 3 minute walk to the 'free rail' into the city. Check in staff brilliant and so friendly compared to other hotels we have stayed in locally. Restaurant was very good and not duly overpriced like some we know. View from room over the port was impressive. Club level room was as most Marriotts, good service and free bits. Drinks very reasonableby priced.Just nice chilling out with a glass as the ships set sail, and sun went down.Highly recomended.

Room Tip: ask for high level and overlooking port.

There are people that just do their jobs and then there are those that are a true asset to their company. I had the extreme pleasure of meeting two such people on my stay at the Marriott Biscayne Bay on 11/3 & 4, & 9th. My friend and I had come to town a couple of days early to enjoy some R&R before catching the Music Boat cruise. From the moment we walked into the hotel, we were treated as if we were so much more than just customers. It was as if we were family. The lovely Ms. Marjorie Sabbat was the first employee that impressed us. She greeted us, complimented us, helped us and laughed with us while we waited our turn in line. She then directed us to the extremely handsome Mr. Matthew Riani. He had such a charming, charismatic personality, he was a joy to conduct business with. Everything about our stay was great. The staff could have gotten frustrated because they were so busy with all of the people coming in for the Music Boat cruise, but they were very courteous instead, and we appreciated them so much. Also, the food at the Catch Grill & Bar was outstanding. So much so we ate there all three nights.

This was my first trip to Miami and was very pleased with this hotel. The location was great for our business trip. Easy access to downtown. The hotel is very modern and clean. We upgraded to a room with a bay view for an extra $30 per night. Still very reasonable. The room was very comfortable, view fantastic and really enjoyed the upgraded bathroom amenities from bath and body works. I always bring my own but used theirs instead. We ordered room service on our first night. Pizza and Caesar salad. Both were great. There is a nice restaurant at the hotel but the menu was mostly fish and was a bit "gourmet" for our tastes, so we did not eat there. We did have drinks and were served by a very friendly bartender that remembered us the second night and also remembered what we were drinking. Great outdoor deck to sit and relax with comfortable couches. There is a shopping strip that connects the Marriott to the Doubletree next door. There are a couple of restaurants there, and many other small shops including a small convenience store which I found a plus. Valet was incredibly quick. Overall, the staff, room quality, location and cleanliness of this hotel cannot be beat. I would return and recommend to anyone. My one complaint would be that there was no mini fridge in the room. This is a very nice property. old job Marriott.

This hotel has a strange location, sandwhiched in between two large apartments, so it's in a strange shape, until you realise that the views of the marina are perfect.

As always, you get the best of service, and the breakfast buffet make a first class meal, though not cheap. Easy access to the Mall accross the road makes this a great location, especially before a cruise from the nearby Port of Miami.

Dinner is very expensive.

My family and I stayed at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay over the Christmas holiday. We had a very nice time! Besides the incredibly friendly, helpful and attentive staff, the rooms are a good
size, very clean and many have amazing views of the Bay and all the boats. The staff, upon check-in, were immediately helpful and arranged for us to have a very high floor with an incredible room. The front desk staff were always attentive, especially when we needed a technical issue with the televisions dealt with promptly. The repairmen were incredibly friendly and very respectful of our privacy. The front desk staff were always eager to give suggestions of where to eat and always followed up with us to hear our opinions of their choices. The parking/valet staff were amazing -- an especially tricky job as the place is very busy at this time of year with all the cruises and New Years celebrations. The car jockeys were all wonderful and friendly and you barely had to wait more than a few minutes for your car.

The pool area is nothing special but completely perfect for a quick dip after a long day of sightseeing. The views from the Pool floor are also incredible! We took our children --ages 10 and 13 -- and they really enjoyed the pool and meeting some other kids.

All in all, a great stay and we would definitely consider staying here again when we return to Miami!!

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the higher floors with a view of the Bay/water -- you will NOT be disappointed! At...

We stayed 2 nights in December before our Christmas cruise. We requested a view of the water, hoping to get the kids excited waking up to the view of our ship in port. In that respect, it weren't disappointed. The views of the cruise ships really are nice! Front desk staff was great and very helpful. The rooms were small and seemed a bit tired. Also had a musty smell which other people have mentioned, and it's true. All in all it was fine. If we weren't cruising out though, I wouldn't choose this hotel again.

$ Saving hint: Buffet breakfast at the hotel is very good, but $20 each. Breakfast for our family of 2 adults and 2 children was $80.00! If you go to down the hallway (to the left of the front desk) their is a mini mall attached to the hotel. There is a marketplace that has a breakfast bar at the back (eggs, bacon & pancakes etc) as well as a Starbucks coffee kiosk.... Breakfast for the 4 of us - $20.00!

Room Tip: If you are cruising out get a water view room. You can wake up in the morning and see your ship in...
