“Great hotel to prep for your cruise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

The hotel was beautiful. Elevators were crazy fast! We stayed on the 25th and 27th floors and had little wait time for one of six to show up. Nice shops and places to grub between it and the double tree. Only weird thing was there were no towel bars or exhaust fans in bathrooms. Alarm clock had iPod connection, but difficult to program time as ours was not plugged in.
Overall, very happy with our stay plus added bonus was the hotel shuttle which dropped is off at south beach and picked us up as late as 9:30.

The hotel is located on Biscayne Bay (obvious I know!) and is generally in an ok position to SOBE ( about 15-20 min in a taxi). We stayed here for a conference, and the Internet and phone reception was not too good at times in the conference rooms. The bedrooms were spacious and the king bed was very comfortable. I had a small balcony looking at the Harbour and Downtown. The bathroom was on the smaller size. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the valet staff were great fun!!

I stayed at the Marriott for 2 nights while in town for the Miami Marathon. The hotel was extremely helpful in providing relevant marathon info and was within walking distance to the start and finish lines. The room was comfortable with a nice view of the marina. My one complaint would be the tub/shower was old and stained. But it was a minimal complaint. The hotel also provided free shuttle to miami beach and gave warm cookies in the lobby. All in all, a great stay!

I had a 2 night 3 day stay recently. Layover between trips and needed to get some work done. I found the service here was great. Staff training seems great. I got comp'ed a couple items due to inconveniences etc. Shows the right staff are empowered enough to care and make choices. I had a side room with a balcony. They have rooms with a view (great view) without balconies. I prefer to be able to open a door, sit on a deck and enjoy the view and coffee (beer in the evening).
Couple drawbacks for the business traveler:
WiFi connection ONLY. Just doesn't cut it in this day and age. Usual overload time periods which makes skype and other "steady / consistent" bandwidth programs difficult.
Construction noise - church beside the hotel under renos and some pretty good racket coming from the project.
Both days I went for walks - there is a small waterfront boardwalk that reaches to a bridge. Lots of action on the waterways.
20 minutes from the airport by taxi - $25 - $30 - NO SHUTTLE but no bid deal.

Room Tip: close enough (and cheap enough) to the airport if the closer airport hotels are booked

Made very welcome by staff on arrival and allocated a nice room but with limited view. Returned to reception and very patient staff member gave me card for another room, excellent view broken patio door. Returned again and taken to third room with same view, the door worked but was very, very stiff. The staff never showed any frustration and were very patient with me.

The room was lovely, spacious, bright, clean and cheerful.

Location . . . Handy for the free town trolley that runs along Biscayne Bvd passing Bayside shops and bars and going as far as Mary Brickell village, a good place for shops, bars and restaurants. We were told to be careful around the hotel at night but found it to be fine. There's a publix supermarket, a chequers and Burger King just around the block. The park next door is lovely.

Overall an excellent stay 10 dollars taxi ride from the cruise port and great views from many of the rooms. BUT Marriott management please oil the runners on the doors before someone injures themselves trying to open or close them.

Went on a cruise and decided to spend a couple days before leaving. Rooms have a beautiful view of the Miami Bay and the docks. About a mile from where the Cruise ships dock. Has a lot of great resturants connected to the hotel with a great variety of cuisine. Even had a place to get my nails done before boarding the ship. Rooms were gourgeous. Only negative thing I can even say about this hotel is the internet is very slow and cuts in and out.

I stayed here for a conference during a particularly busy weekend in Miami.

Rooms were nice and very spacious. The bathrooms were also very roomy, the shower had great pressure and the beds were comfortable. We had an amazing view of the bay from our balcony. Location is close to the port and the Bayside Marketplace where there many options for dining and shopping, as well as some nightlife.

Staff was great to us, very friendly. As I mentioned, we were there is a very busy weekend on Miami Beach so the cabs were not as readily available as they usually are. After seeing our frustration, one staff member who was just getting off her shift drove us to the restaurant where we were already 45 minutes late for our reservation.

The pool, although a little small was a nice place to relax. I didn't get a chance to eat in the lounge or restaurant, but I enjoyed all the meals I had during the conference. I would stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side have a fabulous view of the bay.
