“Close to cruise port, waterfront park and many restaurants”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We chose this hotel for convenience to the cruise port and within walking distance to Bayfront Park attractions (waterfront park, restaurants, shopping, bars). As expected our room was nice, comfortable and clean. However, at this time there is major construction going on across the street, which means noise and unsightly view. Also there is always a major traffic jam just outside which created vehicle noise such as honking horns, etc.

Regardless of all the distractions mentioned above, we loved the location which allowed us to walk to many nearby restaurants, cafes, and Bayfront Park which is exceptional place to hang out at the waterfront. You can actually see part of Dodge Island and some cruise ships in the distance from our hotel window. The hotel does offer an outside vendor van shuttle service for $5 per person that leaves at 11am.

One drawback was the "continental breakfast" voucher system at the on site Le Bistro. There is a long line in the morning to order your breakfast items (very limited unless you pay extra) instead of the typical buffet. Yet, we were happy the hotel offered breakfast even a limited one.

How do I effectively share the amazing, caring, compassionate effort of each and every staff member we met? I can't find the letters on this keyboard!
First, we got lost in the web of downtown Miami and Biscayne Blvd. Our Garmin was NO HELP. The staff member we called stayed with us and gently, carefully, patiently got us right to their garage under the property. Then, we were met by the front staff. I have never met so many people showing us such respect and actual joy for us being there. When they heard it was our anniversary, we were upgraded to a suite. We also received extra free choices of drinks/beverages twice; once at the front desk and then in their Bistro after there was an error in bringing out our food. When they heard it was our anniversary, we were given a platter of fruit and cheeses to take to our room.
The room was clean. The bed was heavenly.The view was blinking lights of downtown Miami.
It's situated near the causeway if you want to get to the beaches. It's not on the beach but near all the downtown attractions.
I was there for the Miami Book Fair. I'm the author of "Confessions of a Childfree Woman. Amazon.com. When we asked how to get to the Book Fair, we had a map with the exact route that got us there the next AM.
There were only two things that you should know: Although they do have a restaurant, I would recommend it for breakfast (they have Starbucks coffee) and lunch. It's not really a dinner restaurant. I ordered roasted chicken which was OK and my husband had a delicious burger. If it weren't for the terrible weather, we would have chosen a better place for our anniversary dinner although their food was good! The ambiance is really more for a bistro environment.
This property, their staff, comfort of beds, location for a city, and service is perfection. Their garage is right there under the hotel. (Valet parking is an extra $21.00) You can also park yourself. We called and our car was waiting for us when we got there to leave.
Without reservations, I recommend this hotel for anyone who needs to be in the downtown Miami area.

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views.

Spent one night here before a cruise in October 2013. Very clean and well-cared-for hotel. Wasn't too thrilled with the area;however, the staff, in particular the manager, Olcay, went above and beyond by offering us a complimentary breakfast. As we were waiting for our shuttle to the port she even offered complimentary water to guests. Top-notch service at this hotel!

I am a loyal Marriott customer and this Courtyard is probably the best one that I have stayed at (and there have been plenty). The location was perfect- right across the street from Biscayne and Bayside. There aren't too many exciting restaurants around, but the view from our 14th story balcony overlooking the bay was gorgeous!! The hotel was immaculate; the rooms very comfortable. My only complaint is that they needed a variety of pillows instead of the same huge one times 5- my neck was killing me (with or without the pillow). So, just bring a pillow or make a special request and you'll be fine.

Clean, friendly , comfortable , free wifi, everything in room worked.
Its a courtyard marriot , so thats what you get, but i prefer this to overpaying for some of the more hip hotels that promise but don't deliver.
Staff were lovely.

We had heard from a few people prior to arrival that downtown Miami is not the safest. However we were only staying one night pre cruise and got a great rate. Staff were so friendly, room was spacious and has a fridge to keep water. Minutes walk from a nearby CVS store and 10-15min walk to Bayside Market Place, a must visit to see a range of bar, restaurants and river boat cruises. Would recommend the hotel no problem and if I ever return for another cruise, would stay again!
