Yes, my husband and I stayed there 2 years ago. This hotel is very nice...super modern and sleek decor. Our room I believe was a corner room with awesome views of the ocean and beach...floor to ceiling windows on both sides and HUGE room . Beds where heavenly comfortable with super soft sheets and down comforters. The bathroom was gorgeous...the lady will enjoy! We really liked the restaurant overlooking the beach (open air) for breakfast and lunch...very serene and relaxing. Pools were ok...too much concrete for my taste (too "square" with miles of concrete ledges, steps, etc...trying for minimalist modern look)...and too warm...water was too warm to refresh. Also, you could not see the beach from the pool area. Major plus however was the access to the beach boardwalk! We would run there everyday along the beach which is quite nice. Service was so so...not the greatest and certainly not the worst. Everything here was pricey...but then what do you expect in Miami! I hope this helps.
It was/is a lovely property. It's no longer a Marriott run property
We stayed there exactly a year ago for our anniversary. It was gorgeous. We were upgraded to an oceanfront room and were treated probably the best we've ever been at a marriott hotel. from the front desk people to the bartender in the lobby bar, everyone congratulated us on our anniversary, and we were given champagne on the house in the restaurant and bar! The hotel also sent champagne and strawberries to our room two night! I'm very bummed that this is no longer a marriott property. We are gold elite but we used a military discount for the room and it was very inexpensive. this hotel has
the best customer we've ever experienced. Nice pools, beach and an easy walk to the heart of Southbeach.
