Courtyard Miami Downtown/Brickell Area
Ranked #38 of 127 Hotels in Miami
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We stayed at the Courtyard the night before our cruise. I originally booked the B2 (better location view than Ctyd) but had enough points for a free stay so we change to Courtyard. The staff are very nice. We stayed on the top floor but there is not a view of the water because of construction. Great beds and wonderful shower!! You are close to Bayside which has nice shops and it is a 3 block walk to it. There are a lot of homeless people so be aware that you might be asked for $. If you don't have breakfast included there are some very good breakfast choices. Starbucks wasn't doing it for me. That is one thing I liked about Miami was the European feel to it. It is a nice hotel and close to the Metromover which is a block away. If you have time you should ride the FREE Metromover. It is a fun way to see the sights of downtown Miami.

Disappointing for a marriott hotel .. When unsure where to stay and not familiar with area I tend to lean to marriott or hilton owned resort due to consistent service levels. This hotel is a great location, 3 of us were doing a miami weekend. Upon check-in, none of the 3 keys worked so had to make a second trip to lobby. Room was nice but after sometime in it started to have problems. First tv was unplugged for coffee pot, when plugged in it would not get a signal, then toilet seat was loose, almost slide off was very dangerous and then noticed on the textured wall behind the bed dust balls clinging to wall. They addressed problems we had but 3 things brings concern of quality control and management oversight. Then sat. Spent day at beach, returning at 4:30 pm our room had not been serviced.. Had dinner plans and had to wait for towels and make a trip downstairs to resolve.. Whereas young lady did correct and throw in free coffee in am, having to make phone calls and go to front desk 4 times in 2 days is unacceptable, especially from a marriott level hotel. I'm not sure I will select marriott next time if Hilton available!!

Room Tip: Call the resort they will usually match or beat online booking sites and you can be sure of what roo...

No major issues during a recent long-weekend stay -- but having seen nearby offerings, I'd choose elsewhere next time.

This property is not without its charms: a very convenient downtown location near public transit; well-maintained, clean and comfortable, and the staff are generally helpful.

But the shortcomings were all too noticeable: a nonworking television, area traffic and construction that interrupted sleep, elevators jammed and practically unavailable at certain busy times of day, flyers placed under my door twice in two days by local restaurants (who's controlling entry here?), and -- most of all -- this property's popularity among the cruise ship crowd, for whom it serves as an overnight transfer base. This can result in lobby chaos when the entire place checks out at 11:00a.

If you're budget-minded and not annoyed by the foregoing, then this property is your choice in downtown Miami. Next time, I'll spend a bit more and hope for a less chaotic, more predictable experience.

Having flown all day from Europe I was tired and needed a shower before a business dinner. I rented a car and found my way to the hotel without too much trouble, except for one wrong turn due to one way streets. The parking attendants were cheerful and helpful. Check in was seamless and fast.
My room was nicely appointed, thought a bit dated. My bed was very comfortable, I was told they are new and the best Marriott offers. The bathroom was clean and fresh looking. Housekeeping during my stay was excellent.
The Bistro breakfast food was good and the one time i ate lunch there the citrus salad was large and well prepared
The hotel is located downtown close to the cruise port and great restaurants. Unlike many cities, downtown is vibrant after 6:00 PM. Although I wouldn't walk around alone past 9:00 PM.

Check out was as rapid as check in. The entire staff were smiling, friendly, helpful and approachable.

I would stay there again.

We stayed for 2 nights after a cruise. The biggest positive for this hotel is the staff. They were impeccable....nailed the customer experience. The location is great, downtown close to the port and airport ($24 cab ride to both).The hotel itself is a bit outdated could use some sprucing up. The rooms were however spacious and clean (no fridge or microwave).$15 parking per night.

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.
