Great location, great pool and good restaurant. Only one complaint - we requested 2 double beds and the hotel did not reserve a double room. Instd they offered a king bed and roll-away. We were pretty disappointed considering our special request for a double room, but the staff said that a convention had pre-booked all the double rooms. Not sure why the convention guests got priority but that was theirstory and they were sticking to it.
In the alternative, we chose this Marriott b/c it offered the same rate as some of the boutique hotels for the wknd after Memorial Day. For the money, I'd prefer a hotel that has a little name recognition. The hotel was great about our early check-in request (albei not a double room as requested). I got there at 9AM and they had a room waiting. The housekeepers were extra friendly and efficient. The restaurant (although over-priced as everything on South Beach is) was good as well. We could also walk to the main hot spots on Ocean Drive pretty easily (just a few blocks).
I would add that all of this was only worth it b/c of our AAA discounted rate. Had we paid the "regular" rate of about $400 bucks a night, it so would not be worth it.More
