... for dinner. A healthy dinner tonight, all you can eat salad buffet at Sweet Tomatoes - very tasty. That's our last night here in Hollywood, Florida, tomorrow we've got a long drive up to Tampa where we'll be staying the next two nights. Not had the best weather here in Hollywood/Miami, so we are all hoping that's going to change sometime soon. This explains why there's no photos, the weather did absolutely nothing for the sights of ...

We got up to the stadium in our muscle and sleeveless shirts and kind of stood out from all the fancy people in their golf shirts. We got our tickets and headed to our seats. There was not a bad seat in the stadium. Sharapova ended up losing in straight sets (not the outcome that I had expected), but it was still a great ...

After that we got our car out of the parking garage and headed home. The drive wasn't too bad and we decided overall it was a great trip. Can't wait to get back to South Beach again...but next time I would probably stay at the Raleigh, or save up to splurge on the Delano ...

It was crazy rave gear everywhere you looked. Naturally, my friends and I all got separated for like 5 hours at a time. We would try to meet up, but just give up after a few hours.

After a lovely dinner at Big Pink we took a walk along the marina and had a great conversation about how owning a boat really isn’t ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront
We visited this hotel from June 17 thru 21, 2004. The hotel is not a typical Courtyard in a number of ways: (1) Valet Parking - although steep at $17/day, it was great to have a team of valets at the door around the clock to greet us and park our car. It adds to the wonderful resort feel of this hotel, (2) Classic Art Deco Architecture - A high end renovation of the old Cadillac Hotel. Not lavish, but it certainly created a lovely setting, (3) Beautiful Pool and Grounds - Walk along the boardwalk toward South Beach and you'll recognize that the excepional landscaping and pool area are a notch above most Miami Beach hotels, (4) Resort Style Service - Some of the best poolside service I have ever had, serving both food and drinks.
Great Stay at the Courtyard Marriott Oceanfont
My daughter and I had a wonderful time at this Hotel in May 2004 during Memorial Day Weekend. The Hotel Lobby was beautiful, the Pool is great, the service is great. It is about a 10 minute walk to the main South Beach area, but the walk is no problem on the boardwalk behind the Hotel. The Beach behind the Hotel is wonderful and clean. The next time I am in Miami, the Courtyard Marriott Oceanfront will definitely be my #1 choice. It is a top notch Hotel.
This is the old Cadillac hotel, it is in South Beach but it is far on the outskirts of the main road. They did a great job refurbishing it, if your going to stay here you should definetly spend the money to upgrade to the ocean view if you can get a pool view, otherwise the view is on the side of the building and the view out front is bad. The pool is very nice however it is not heated and the water was VERY cold. There is a wooden deck/walkway on the beach that is lit at night and it runs the length of South Beach it's a beautiful walk day or night. There are chairs etc. available for rent on the beach. The street directly in front and to the sides are old buildings and condos. The hotel does not provide a restraunt in the evenings and there is no place with in walking distance. We had a rental car but hardly used it because of the traffic and parking problems around town. Parking was 17.00 per night plus a tip every time you used the car.
My husband, our 3 year old son & I stayed at the Courtyard Miami Beach Oceanfront for one day on our return from a Caribbean cruise. The hotel was beautiful & the staff was kind & courteous. Our room was large & clean & the bathroom seemed huge for a hotel room. We used the pool in the morning & my son was in heaven. We walked along their wooden boardwalk & viewed the ocean & beach -which was immaculate. We will try to make it to the beach on our next visit. The valet price was upsetting to my very frugal husband. But personally I thought it was worth the charge, since you do not have to try to find a parking space on the street & they brought your car to you as often as you want to use it. The valet personnel were very nice & worked hard for their tip. We went to South Beach the night before, which is not really a great place for children. The parking situation in that area is insane (we drove around for 40 minutes & parked 5 blocks away) I highly recommend the price of a cab for those people who want to see South Beach. I was grateful that our hotel was not on South Beach since it was so crowded & loud. We got a deal on the price of the hotel on the Marriott website & breakfast which was served buffet style with a manned omelette station & make your own waffles, was $10 each & our three year old ate free. The omelette was better than the ones on our cruise & the orange juice is fresh squeezed & lip smackingly, delicious. The only warning I would give is that the main road in front of the hotel is a one way, which is confusing because the road starts out both ways & splits. So if you are not paying attention (the signs are vague) when you leave the hotel you might end up facing on-coming traffic, which we almost did-Yikes! We enjoyed our stay & would absolutely stay at this hotel again in a second.
Only one complaint: $16/day valet parking.(well two- you have to pay for chairs and umbrellas at the beach). If you do have a car and will be using it often, give the valet guys a nice tip and ask to put the car in the back. As far as the hotel - it was excellent. The rooms were well and of course newly decorated. Beds left alittle to be desired and the layout with the bathroom door blocking the TV was questionable.
I absolutley loved this hotel. I stayed 4 days right in the middle of college spring break. I had expected to be bombarded with College spring breakers but that was not the case. The hotel was quite and peaceful. The staff was very prompt bringing things to my room when requested. Although my first nite there I found a flock of hair in my bed, and things left over from another parties stay. But infact they did come to correct the problem very fast. The view was fantasitc and the drinks and food where average as well. The room size was great, nicely decorated not chessy or distateful as like some of the other hotels on the block. The view of the ocean from my balcony, was beautiful as well. I would definetly stay here again. I give it four stars.
Back to glorious time
I used to work at this hotel at the Cadillac and Melia years. Now I stayed there for a weekend right one week after re-opened and I was fascinated with the hotel, staff and everything. Beautiful and large rooms looking at the ocean, just steps away from Miami Beach's major attractions. I loved it. I will be back! Thank you all for a great stay.
This Courtyard used to be the Cadillac Hotel, just reopened after an extensive redo. The Lobby is simple, yet funky. The room was great with NEW everything! The staff was courteous. The location is right in the middle of the 1.5 mile boardwalk. Great for walking and jogging. The pool was simple and very clean. The Beach is awesome! The food at the cafe was great, cooked to order breakfast came with our room rate. The only thing missing was an area (hospitality room?) to shower and change after checkout for a late flight. We used the lobby ladies room. I would definetly go back and will send clients there. (I am a travel agent), I think it would be great for a short stay or a week at the beach, just remember you need a car, no restaurants, bars or shops within walking distance. The $16 mandatory Valet parking was disappointing, especially when there was a 20 minute wait for them to go get your car each time. No answer when calling the valet in advance.
Comfortable, convenient locacation, friendly staff
stayed at the hotel for 5 nights in january. the hotel had just opened 4 days before. i loved the place, very convenient located, directly at the beach, just about 2 miles from south beach. nice, comfortable, spacious rooms. very friendly staff all over the place (front staff, valet, restaurant/bar)
