Me: As Brad inches lower towards the table.. Nah mate, we'll be right....
Just wasn't worth the effort... I've attached a photo of Brads burger and the subsequent bill....
After almost a week of sunning ourselves and not doing much else, it was time to get ready to leave.
We are heading North to St Louis for a couple of days and then we are off to Indianapolis !
Yep, more petrol head stuff :)
... at 12:45 to head to the airport. Left Miami at 2:40 Got to Chicago at 4:45 and our flight wasn't until 9:15, there was a flight to Green Bay that was delayed and left at 5:30 so we were able to get on that flight. It was nice to be back at 615 as the car had a light left on and a dead battery. By the time a truck came to jump us we didn't leave gb until 815. oh well we were still home before our initial flight was scheduled to leave ...
... places we eat in Miami you had no choice in relation to tipping - 18%25 service fee was automatically added to your bill! Normally, that's not an issue. The service in American restaurants is usually excellent, but somehow at The Dutch it was a bit galling to be required to pay 18%25 for pretty poor service. For those who are interested the menu follows ... Not that I'd recommend a visit to The Dutch at South Beach. The Dutch Cocktails Watermelon ...
The tour stopped in Miami for two nights. It was pretty hot so we wore our one and only pair of shorts we packed. There are a lot of foreigners here but I'm not sure where they are from. They speak Spanish and there is a little Havana area in town so they could be Cuban Immigrants. Holiday makers could be from South America. The city is very different from other states we have visited so far. Its like Bali and Surfers ...
... a ship because food is available everywhere...so you just indulged...lol
You could dine at your leisure in the buffets for breakfast lunch and dinner or go to the beautiful dinning room ballroom type and be royally pampered. It was worth it and you get to dress up which I enjoyed. I am not a total girly girl, but it was fun dressing up, especially for the Captain's dinner.
As for being occupied, indeed there was something for everyone - the main ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marseilles Hotel Miami Beach
Miami is one of the most celebrated vacation areas. So many Northerners like myself flock to this place to escape the bitterly cold climate especially in December and January. It has that island feel, the kind where you'd think you were on an Bahamian island instead of the southeastern United States. Beautiful palm trees, clean blue green water with seashells massaging your feet, comfortable hammocks hanging on the tree limbs. If your a "solo" traveler dont be afraid to get out there and socialize!. Most of the people I met there had that "Southern Hospitality" demeanor offering to lend a helping hand if direction were needed to get somewhere or just to hang out with in many of SoBe's Washington and Collins Avenue nightclubs. I also loved the cultural diversity that Miami has to offer. Sampled many food dishes of Latin America including Cuban, Columbian, Peruvian, Aregentinian just to name a few. Shopping is kind of pricey depending on where you go and the kind of style your into. Dadeland Mall, and if you're driving, the Opalocka Flea Market which is about thirty minutes north of Miami Beach you'll find excellant deals on shoes and other assessories. And lastly the best hotel to check into is the Marsellies Hotel located in the middle of all the SoBe attractions. They provide excellant services all around. I would suggest a vacation to Miami to anyone!. Make sure at least five days is spent there if possible.
Borederline Terrible/Okay, but not again.
This will be short because the story has already been told here. Came from San Diego to Miami to try the other coast. while I had a great time in South Beach, the hotel was borderline betx Terrible and Okay.
The lobby was great but the rooms were like a sleasy motel. The rooms were very dated and need of upgrade. The walls were not very clean and almost spoiled the whole trip. I'm glad that I went by myself because my lady would have required that we move to a new location. The rooms reminded me of old rooms deep into Baja. The only good thing was the location. The gym was in a basement cavity. Awwwh!!! Not again. I'm the 3rd guy that had a little trouble with the bill when I left. Got it straight before I left. They wanted to charge an extra night.
My wife and I stayed at the Marseilles from Oct 3 to Oct 5. The hotel wasn't as bad as some of the reviews that I have read made it seem. It is not the greatest place that I have stayed in, but it was adequate.
i am not sure were to start. me and my wife from palm beach area and a couple from atlanta stayed at this supposed to be 3 1/2 star hotel first the front desk staff had us wait till 4:30 to check in one of the rooms and they were not very nice about it tossed the key at one of the girls. the room was old stains on the curtains, fridge has a large gap which made our food go bad. termite. wings on the dining rooms chairs old pool sticks for one old pool table on the stick there were no tips.
We were dissappointed!
Stayed here for 3 days in May 2003. Good location, on the beach, close to Ocean Drive, friendly staff, room decor is fairly old, but clean, pool area was dirty all the time, we had to clean the pool for ourselves! breakfast is not included and is just served for an extra charge (expensive!). overall the hotel is not very cheap and instead of the entry not very charming, good place to stay if you are looking for a hotel near bars & clubs and not spend a lot of time in the room.
Worth the cheap rates..
Stayed here for 5 days in May. Good location, on the beach, close to Ocean Drive, Lincoln and good clubs/bars, room decor is fairly old, but clean, easy to hear people in hall outside of room, but overall good place to stay if you are looking to get away, for cheap and not spend a lot of time in the room.
Good Value & Location
Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights. Good value, considering it was spring break and we booked very last-minute. All staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are dated, but clean. Negatives: Our room had a window-unit A/C and the position was annoying (blew directly onto the beds). We also had one instance of no hot water / water pressure, but other than that no complaints. This hotel is in a GREAT location (but request a room off the street if you don't like traffic noise). This is also one of the few older deco hotels with a pool. The breakfast in the restaurant was very good! Would recommend for anyone searching for value, good SoBe location with a pool, and not concerned about room decor!
A Great 4 Day Stay
A very nice, clean and friendly run hotel. It is situated right on the beach and close to all the amenities. We had a very good stay at a reasonable price. Regards
Marseilles Hotel Review
We stayed at the Marseilles Hotel for New Years 2001. We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are a little dated but very clean. They have a very nice bar and George the bartender was fantastic. The food in the restaurant was also good. The pool area was also nice and leads out to the beach. This was a nice hotel to stay at and it was centrally located. We look forward to staying here again.
