We are Marriott gold members so have stayed in ALOT of Marriotts, therefore I feel pretty confident in saying that this one just is not up to scratch ...it simply trades on its location next to the beach.
Firstly, its not accessible - steps up, steps down, steps everywhere you go. Occasionally there are ramps if you look hard enough, often not. Then there is the pop music blasting into the lobby - maybe this is to appear "hip" in Miami, but its not exactly a calming atmosphere when you arrive late at night.
Rooms are TINY - New York sized, barely big enough for the bed + a sideboard for the TV, so don't think about opening out your suitcases because there will be no place for them! It seems like they just wanted to squash in as many people as possible.
We were given one of everything (toiletries, coffee) in a room reserved for 2 people. I phoned down to order more coffee, which we then finished, and the Housekeeping replaced it on our second morning with sachets of Decaff, in addition to not particularly cleaning the room. So I had to call down again (and tip again) for something that should be automatically provided.
These sound like small gripes, but it just got progressively more irritating.
Also be aware that there are few restaurants within walking distance in this corner of Miami Beach - you need to either get in your car or eat at the hotel's in-house restaurants - and if you do bring your car, be prepared to pay $40 a day for valet parking ($32 + taxes, tips etc). All in all, not worth the money for the standard you receive.
