We were booked for two nights at the Courtyard Miami Beach. It was of course an Art Deco redo, nicely appointed, but the strong scent of fruity air freshner hit you as entered the lobby. I know it's an old building, so I guess they have to overscent it to avoid a musty odor.
The room was small but well decorated, the balcony with glass railings and the slider were sparkly clean- until my toddler granddaughter visited and put tiny handprints all over- I still feel a bit guilty over that. The mirrored closet door and the heavy bathroom door clunked each other constantly, kepy waiting for the tinkling of shattered mirror!
My husband has a bad back, so we always bring an air mattress and pump in case he can't tolerate the bed. As it usually goes with him, he needed the air mattress. ( I loved the bed -so I had a king to myself!) BUT, our pump wouldn't work! The staff went all out to accomodate him. They didn't have an air pump,but they brought up a fancy-looking rollaway in 5 min. As it turns out, he had to take the roll-away mattress and put that on the floor and he slept fine...until....
At 5:45am on a Saturday we started hearing small elephants prancing around! The noise came from above , sometimes seemed from the sides or the hall, couldn't figure out where the random knocking was come from. The room seemed to shake a bit! Figured someone's kids were excited about going to the beach and were up early racing up and down the halls above. i guess it is hard to soundproof an older building. We diidn't stay the second night. My point is- remember this if you are booking Spring Break season!
Otherwise this is a beautiful hotel with very helpful staff. The valet and porters were fast!
