Stayed at the Marlin hotel for 4 nights in April and loved the design and concept of the hotel. The iPad controlled lights, tv, curtains and air con is a great touch and really adds to the enjoyment of the stay. The design is very funky and the rooms are all suites with king beds and sofa beds allowing lots of room for a Miami Hotel. The hotel is only a block from the beach providing a fantastic location. Beach bags provided is a great touch and complimentry wifi was a good bonus too. There were a couple of minor problems while we were there but overall not enough to take back from a lovely stay. When we arrived the hotel reception is on the 2nd floor and the door from the street is locked. The intercom had broken so we had to wait until someone came out of the door to access the hotel. We then asked about parking and were offered the valet service at $29 a night. I wasn't awate that parking was so expensive but that may just be my naivity and not reading the website clearly. The first night we were there we were woken at 4am by noise from the studio on the ground floor that was really loud. We complained to reception but were told that since the recording studio isn't owned by the hotel there wasn't much they could do. They did move us to another room on a higher floor and offered us a discount but the room wasn't quite as big/good as the first room. After the switch however we did sleep like a dream every night. The bathroom door in the room didn't close properly as it was a sliding door so would roll open each time you used it. This didn't bother me so much but was annoying whenever you tried to use the toilet. We did inform reception but were told that it would be too big a job to fix while we were there so they would have to wait until the room was empty to fix it. I agree with some of the other notes that other reviewers have picked up on like absence of tea/coffee facilities being annoying and also the difficult working the lights in the night if you wanted to get up to use the bathroom or get a drink but overall these were only minor complaints. I did really enjoy the hotel and vibe but I'm not sure I'd stay here again.
