OK But Nothing Special A review of Courtyard By Marriott Miami Downtown
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.
