I recently stayed at this hotel for three nights on a business trip. Clearly, my expectation that all Marriott properties have the same standards was wrong. Don't get me wrong, the people working in this hotel were very helpful and polite. The location is great if you are 20-25 years old and want to hang out at the beach and never leave your hotel. I spent the first 20 minutes in my room cleaning the clumps of dust from the air vent. The hotel is very old. 1939, I believe. The rooms are very very small which I'm sure is typical of the era. And the bathroom was so cramped that i literally had to get the toilet paper before I sat down. It was nearly impossible to reach it after you sat down. Had a rental car so valet was the only option. It took a minimum of 45 minutes to retrieve my car each day. And each day after my meeting, I came back to the hotel to find that my key card would not open my room door. I would go back down to stand in line a minimum of 30 minutes for the ONE desk clerk working at 5:30 in the afternoon. Overall, just not a good experience. However, I have nothing to compare the hotel, as this was my first trip to Miami. I am still trying to get my bill straightened out. I checked out almost a week ago!
