“Just average”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

The Residence Inns are among our favourites. That is possibly the reason why I was so disappointed with this property. The property generally is iffy and the rooms are just about average; I don't know what one can say about the service or services without being unkind. By way of comparison, even the sole computer in the 'business center' looked brilliant even though it was non-functional while we were there. Sure, the breakfast was complimentary but could it not have been a wee bit healthier and tastier? There is nothing at this property that will make me return there voluntarily.

Room Tip: If you are able to, choose another hotel property

This is a very nice option within minutes of the Miami airport. We stayed here both before and after a Caribbean trip. It is part of a "complex" of Marriott hotels including Courtyard and Marriott. The hotel is well maintained with one of the better RI breakfast buffets--but still way to much use of Styrofoam. The evening social was okay with a couple of healthy options but no wine or soft drinks, only lemonade and beer. The other Marriott hotels have dining options including a Starbucks. Unfortunately, there really isn't a grocery store within a reasonable walking distance.

The staff was very nice and the room itself was fairly spacious and clean. You have access to a nice size pool at the Marriott and a very decent workout room at the Courtyard. There is free wifi and a computer in the lobby to print board passes.

The airport shuttle is free and very convenient. It runs every 15 minutes from very early in the morning until very late.

The location of the hotel is great for the airport but not anything else. You can take the bus into Miami but its a long ride and a taxi is around $40 one way. There are a few restaurants within walking distance but nothing very good. There really isn't anyplace to walk or run.

My only complaint is that I left a shoe in the room. When we returned after our trip I expected it to be very easy to retrieve but somehow it was nowhere to be found.

Would definitely stay here again.

One of three Marriott hotels grouped together. We stayed in a one bedroom suite which was excellent and included a free hot breakfast which was very good. The room was very clean the reception staff excellent. Would recommend this hotel

Room Tip: Have change for the taxi/cruise pick up drivers. The first words are" I have no change" D...

Nice roomy rooms but they don't have rooms with two double beds. I had to sleep on the pullout sofa in the living room area. Rather inconvenient. The hotel had great public areas in the lobby and verandas. Tasty breakfast every day too. Best part is that its part of a group of Marriott hotels that offer different room, entertainment and dining options all in the same place. The complex had the Residence Inn, a Marriott, and a Marriott Courtyard, so folks could pick the type of room that suited them best, and we could all gather by the pool or in the lobby of any of the hotels. Very convenient for larger groups. Good restaurant called the Cane Fire Grill in the Marriott in the complex.
