“Quiet Hotel on South Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

This hotel met our family's needs for a short visit to South Beach before boarding our cruise. The rooms were comfortable and quiet, and we had a nice view of the ocean. The restaurant was just o.k. for dinner -- better for breakfast. Was surprised by the cute little aviary! Easy access to beach and walking path, and quick walk to all the nightlife.

This art deco hotel is small and quiet. However, it has all the amenities and charm you desire. Walk out the back onto the beach and lounge for hours in the sun. Topless if you want and you won't stand out. Everything about the hotel and beach was first class. Close to all shops and restaurants. My favorite restaurant is on the corner, Joe's Stone Crab.

Room Tip: Take a City view room and when you get there they might upgrade you to ocean view. If not you won...

I stay in Miami quite often for business and found this gem about a year ago and have been staying at the Marriott South Beach every time I am in Miami. The staff is great. The manager, Seth Frank is always ready to accomodate. The concierge level has a great view of the beach and the city. I would highly recommend this hotel. With all the boutique hotels around, its nice to know your staying at a Marriott and still get the atmophere of a boutique hotel. Anything you need is just walking distance. - Balz

Room Tip: Beach view is great!

I recently ran the Miami Marathon. The staff helped me prepare all my needs during my stay to be awesome. The race starts in downtown Miami at 6AM and
passes the front of the South Beach Marriott about one half hour later. To my surprise and delight, the staff of the hotel was on the front sidewalk cheering me on. WOW......
The hotel is spotless, the service in all outlets is exceptional.
Thank you for a world class stay.

Very nice stay, affordable and clean room in this remodeled hotel on the beach in a quiet area a short stroll from Ocean Drive South Beach restaurants. Professional and accommodating staff at the front desk, valet and the restaurant. Highly recommended for business or pleasure.

Although very handy for the legendary Joe's Stone Crab, and also situated right on the beach, this place is somewhat removed from other key areas of South Beach and thus manages to be just slightly inconvenient for almost anything you're planning to do. (Of course, $10-$15 and 10-15 minutes will get you a cab ride to most places of interest, you just won't be going out much on foot.)

The hotel itself is a little tired-looking, and the attempt at deco interiors to match the locale has clearly been executed on a tight budget, with the result that the effect is cheap and dated. The restaurant, pool area and outside terrace also manage to look cheap and dated, but without even the pretence of deco styling.

For all that, however, the staff are exceptional, being sincerely friendly, helpful and welcoming. They also managed in many cases to recognise me and remember my name when they saw me around the premises, which is extraordinary for a large chain hotel of this sort (if management ever read this, I would particularly commend Javier on reception and Donna in the restaurant). They were possibly enough to merit a recommendation for this place.

That said, I doubt I'll be back. While not an unpleasant place, it is too soulless and corporate-feeling for a vacation (in particular, it lacks any of the peculiar Miami character enjoyed by other hotels a few blocks north), and too remote to be convenient for business.

Thank you for taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay with us and our TripAdvisor readers. The staff at The South Beach Marriott works really hard to create wonderful memories for our guests and we thank you for taking the time to recognize them. We are located in the neighborhood of SoFi ( south of fifth) although it is a few blocks away from the action you are able to get the south beach experience within a few minutes. We are pleased to inform you that the hotel will undergo a complete room renovation this year. This exclusive Jeffrey Beers design will be sleek, stylish with state-of-the-art décor. We are very excited about this renovation. We hope you give us another opportunity after our rooms redo. Warm Sobe wishes.
