Travel Blogs from Miami Beach

2 Days on South Beach

A travel blog entry by jwalford

- Atlantic Ocean was surprisingly warm - driving into Miami is a 100 mile gongshow at high speed - food never fails to impress - walking through south beach was easy and interesting, so unassuming

Back at the Starlite Hotel

A travel blog entry by gilmer


We were lucky that the front desk lady let us check into the Starlite Hotel a little early. Even while staying on the cruise ship a little longer, we were still at our hotel before check-in time.

While checking in, two motorcycles pulled up to a parking space right across from the hotel. They were playing their music extremely loud. The bikes were really ...

What's cool about "IL DOLCE FAR NIENTE"?

A travel blog entry by journeyer


Our luggage is almost packed and as I take care of the this & that of leaving home for a month in Italy, I find myself daydreaming about the upcoming days. After all the months of planning where to stay, what to see, how much time driving each day, where to eat and crafting an "ideal itinerary", it's time to let that structure go - use it as a reference point and let the days flow and enjoy each day.

Off to Miami today, well Miami Beach actually. Well, South Beach, Miami if you want to be bloody picky ! I checked out of my hotel early and grabbed the shuttle to the Key West Greyhound Bus terminal. The bus arrived on schedule and I was soon off on my 4 hour trip through the Florida Keys to Miami. No bloody wi-fi and a dunga bus. The bus was only half full but we did have a stripper on board. She didn't put on a show though. I suspect it was probably because there was ...

Farewell to Cuba

  • The attitude towards Americans. Given the tense relationship between our governments, I did expect a certain degree of resentment towards American visitors. Surprisingly, I didn't encounter anything of this nature even once.
  • The propaganda. Artistically, the style of the propaganda is something I enjoyed. The fact that the Cubans we met seemed very ...

      Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott South Beach Miami Beach

      Pitiful pool, great location though


      We were looking forward to a new hotel right on the beach and were disappointed a little. The lobby is boring and really didn't come up to the South Beach expectation of a great lobby and bar for people watching. Our room was small, but this is typical of ocean front hotels unless you have paid a small fortune. We did face the ocean and noticed that the pool here was more reminiscent of a cruise ship pool than a fabulous SO BE pool.

      This aside, the coffee arrived at our room on time and hot, our bed was comfortable and we liked the south end of South Beach. We walked to Smith and Wollensky and Nemo and Big Pink and watched the goings on at Nikki Beach which is next door and quite a scene.

      If you have Marriott Points this is a good place to spend them.

      Very Nice!


      Beautiful exterior - wonderful rooms, well designed and furnished.

      Front Desk service was excellent; due to fast business trip, only stayed one night and was not able to take advantage of many services, but those I did were superior. The service at breakfast was 1st Class.

      Would definitely stay there again!!

      Expensive hotel, terrible service


      Even though this one of the best looking hotels in the Ocean Drive area, staying there was not worth it. There is nothing wrong with the design an public areas of the hotel, if fact ther are very comfortable and well designed, but the service is terrible. Once we went to the restaurant to have lunch, and at the end we stayed sitting at the tablefor more then 20 minutes before someone came to our table to clean it and get our check. Another time, I had to call the front desk three times in a two hour period to ask them to send someone to clean our room; every time I called, the guy at the front desk would say "they are on their way", but no one came. Our room was cleaned al 2:30 PM!!

      Stay here!


      We are at the Marriott as I write this review. Our other friends decided to stay at the Delano. What a mistake. Over priced and over hyped. The Marriott is a great value (comparitively speaking) while keeping the South Beach Deco tradition. Nothing funky like the Delano (I checked out the rooms (yuk!) and we ate at the sushi bar). Nice size rooms. We have one beach front - Excellent. My wife loves the location.

      The service and people are great. Do yourself a favor and stay here.

      Fabulous location and charming amenities


      My neighbor and I spent 4 days there mid September and were charmed. We had a suite on the concierge level (11th [top] floor) with a huge private balcony overlooking the beach and the park. We could hear the ocean waves, yet were removed from the hustle and bustle. The concierge lounge had amazing food, especially the hot hors d'oeuvres and desserts in the evening, with the added plus of an open air patio. Everyone was extremely helpful and polite at the hotel. The location is more peaceful than many South Beach Hotels, yet still a nice walk to the hot spots on Lincoln Road. The terrace with white muslin draperies separating seating areas under an open-air pergola was to die for, as were the pool, hot tub, and hammock areas. We will definitely be back!!!

      Fantastic Hotel


      We liked this hotel so much we came back a few days after our first stay. We stayed in a partial ocean view the first night and a full ocean view the second night. The rooms were very comfortable -- the beds and shower were well above average for any hotel. The real highlight though was the pool area and beach. The hot tub was a little warm but provided a great release (for a few minutes at least). The hammocks were the perfect place to just relax and cut loose a bit. My girlfriend and I took full advantage of the hotels excellent facilities and look forward to our next stay.

      Loved Marriott South Beach


      Marriott South Beach Hotel was excellent. Service was great. The rooms were a little small but decorated very chic.

      SoFI Blandness


      Stayed here on a Sunday night, April of 2002. My room was on the 7th floor facing the rather blaw looking SoFi area. The club across the street started at midnight and thumped the room until 5AM! The property is narrow with a very small pool out back and a drab entrance to the beach. The positives: This hotel is new and has some classy artistic looks, the rooms are nicely decorated and they have balconies which is rare in all of Miami Beach. The standard rooms are like your average rectangular shaped brand new Las Vegas strip hotel room. The front desk was reasonably accommodating. If you stay there, just be sure to get away from the street and you can possibly avoid being thumped by bass until 5AM. That is, unless you like that thing.

      Right on Beach, Great Balcony Views


      Stayed here in late July, 2003. Location is good if you want to be a bit out of the way, but still close to attractions on Ocean Drive. Best feature is that the hotel sits directly on the beach (not across the street like most south beach hotels). Recommend an ocean "view" room.

      Nice beach, lobby, great beds!


      We stayed at the South Beach Marriott in late October when the weather was wonderful and the crowds elsewhere. Our balcony overlooking the ocean was delightful as was the palm tree room decor with artwork everywhere!
