    Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard By Marriott Miami Downtown

    Great location for Miami Marathon

    from

    Stayed here for Miami Marathon 2006. Great location - one block from the expo and easy few-block walk to Bayfront Park start/finish areas. Clean, comfortable room with free high speed internet. Nice rooftop pool and fitness center. Super location for this event!

    Fine, but noisy

    from

    The hotel itself was good value. Clean, spacious room. The staff were fine. We stayed only one night and the early morning traffic noise was really quite bad. Wouldn't stay again for that reason alone.

    Solidly solid

    from

    Stayed here a few weeks back the night before leaving on a cruise, all in all a decent place. Nothing to write home about, but nothing to complain about either. Pretty much your typical Courtyard, in this case in downtown Miami -- just a few blocks from the Port of Miami. Rooms were typical Courtyard style, as was the lobby. I would reccomend this place if you are looking for quick and relatively inexpensive place to stay the night before a cruise.

    OK But Nothing Special

    from

    I was booked into here by the HR Dept of a company I interviewed with, and certainly would never have myself given location, which is in the middle of a somewhat seedy neighbourhood with no bars or restaurants, let alone fast food places that are open beyond 700pm. So plan on eating in or at the Hyatt just up the street (more on that later). Room was OK though the carpet by the bathroom door was sopping wet which they did address. AC/heat is instrusive, a wall unit vice a central system with a quiet fan. Breakfast buffet OK at $10 though there is a place across the street that could feed you for about half that amount. This is an older though recently renovated property. My hosts paid $55 per night a bargain when you consider the going rate here is the far side of $110, mind you they were in the travel industry. Happy Hour OK with 2/1 well drinks and draft, and some lackluster snacks. Dinner here is going to cost about $20, double what the food is actually worth. Stay away from eating at the Hyatt's Cafe, I paid $21 for what amounted to a pile of shaved BBQ Pork on greens and a soggy bread of some kind. RIPOFF! In conclusion, clean, average service overall, but terrible location if you want to do something touristy. There are equally priced properties in more attractive neighbourhoods.

    Clean and friendly

    from

    this was lovely hotel although a bit in the middle of nowhere but only a 10 minute stroll to the bayside marina. the staff were friendly the food was lovely even though we were late checking in due to airport delays and the restaurant closing at 10pm they were still happy to take our order for food with a smile. the room was spacious the pool area was spotless and a great gym. we only stayed one night pre cruising, It served its purpose and yes I would stay there again. 07/05/05

    Mediocre Hotel

    from

    The hotel was clean and its location was good for convention goers. Service at this hotel, however, was spotty. When I reported a clogged sink, a housekeeper showed up within 10 minutes. However, when I called for room service one night at 8pm, it rang for five minutes without an answer.

    If you enjoy working out, this hotel is not for you. The gym was pretty pathetic - there were very few machines, and three of the four treadmills were not working. The treadmills were of low-end model, and running on them was like running on the surface of Mars. The hotel, however, had an outdoor pool big enough for swimming laps.

    If you simply want a decent place to sleep, this hotel is not a bad choice.

    Loved the Courtyard Marriott

    from

    My stay at this hotel was just super. The staff was gracious and friendly. They offer a very nice breakfast buffet and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Contrary to a previous revew it is just a six block walk to the Bayside Market Place not a mile and a 2 block walk to Bayside Park. It is an excellent location for those like myself that were participating in the Miami Tropical Marathon event, close to all the activiies. I plan on staying there again in November prior to our cruise.

    Better than previous review

    from

    We went as a group of eight and shared two rooms, our rate was $89 and included two breakfast buffets. We only stayed one night because we were catching our cruise ship on Saturday.

    Keep in mind our only requirements are location, cleanliness and no bugs. This had all of it and the breakfast was good as well. Our room was clean and comfortable. The only complaint was our friends had to call twice for more towels, not a big deal though. Our view was a roof of another building, that was no big deal either, we were going to be on a cruise ship for a week looking at the ocean.

    We liked that we were in walking distance to Bayview Mall, Marshalls, Walgreens and other local retailers.

    The hotel offered transportation to the Port of Miami for $5 a person which was timely and very convenient.

    Check in and check out was very efficient and went smoothly with no issues.

    Not what we expected

    from

    Decent hotel located in the middle of businesses - not very close to anything of interest, we had to walk about a mile to get to the Bayside Marketplace. Not a very clean area that I would not walk at night. We had gotten the breakfast lovers deal on the internet for 2 adults and 2 kids, we received a voucher for 1 adult, I talked to the waiter and they changed it to all 4 of us easily, decent staff all the way around.

    Reasonable rate but needs many improvement

    from

    This is an old downtown building recently renovated by Marriott. The lobby and public facilites are very well done. The front desk, restaurant staff and bellhop are very friendly and accommodating. Room rate is reasonable. Internet access is fast and free. Close to BaySide shopping and restaurants, port to cruise ships, MetroMover and MetroBus.

    Now the improvements: The cleaning lady could do a much better job at the room. The carpet in my room was dirty and I found hair on the bed sheet and pillow from previous occupants. The in-room safe was rusty and inoperative. The air-conditioning is very noisy even at low fan speed. If you are a light sleeper, be prepared to wake up very early.

    The balcony windows are single-paned so you hear all the noise from cars below, airplanes above and any construction that is going on around the area.

    ... River" he went around singing "Blue River" for several weeks and could not be convinced it was wrong. The other day a song came on and I heard him comment to himself "oh that's what the lyrics are!" I thought he must be getting better at listening to words until he started going round enthusiastically singing out "Like a limestone cowboy".

    We reluctantly awoke at 6:15 even though we went bed after midnight, to get ready to leave Orlando. Tom went to check out while I had the arduous task of waking the children and getting them dressed and fed. At the airport we went through the security checks and again they wanted to swab my hands. I started internally panicking and said "sure thing", I then asked why me and not anyone else. The security officer informed me that it was because I was carrying a baby ...

    ... Cruise was pretty relaxing and we cruised around Star Island. When someone hears that name, they would think it was an island shaped like a star. Wrong! It was an island with stars living in it! Famous people’s 15 million dollar houses were a great scene for our cameras and looked amazing. Fun Fact: Some man had an $80,000 AC unit in his house and thirty two $10,000 palm trees in his yard. That just shows the adults that spending a few extra ...

    ... There is more than 23 miles of beaches but very little surf by Australian standards. Fort Lauderdale is the wreck dive site capital of the United States with more than 80 coral and artificial reefs.

    We caught the Sun Trolley ($2 per person to ride all day) that links the beach with restaurants and shops along the picturesque Las Olas Boulevard to the Historic Arts and Entertainment district where we boarded a ...

    ... the familiar ta-moko on a mans arm so I yelled out "hey New Zealand", he immediately came over to chat and told us how he was heading off for a cruise through the Bahamas (nice) - always nice to have some time with a local from back home.

    After breakfast we packed up and checked out and drove ourselves to Sawgrass Recreation Park where we had vouchers for an air ...
