Beautiful room

Posted Jan 12, 2018
Very nicely decorated and spacious room in great location. Read the fine print. Free breakfast included for regular patrons, but not for Expedia deal. Also, cost of valet parking deceiving. Staff polite, but misunderstandings about price detracted from lovely stay in a beautiful place.

Fabulous Art Deco style boutique hotel.

Posted Dec 26, 2017
Pros: Style, comfort, room facilities and price
Cons: Nothing in the Superior Deluxe room but the Deluxe room needs a mirror in the bedroom.
Location: Close to beach, shops, restaurants etc. Vert well positioned in South Beach
Superior Deluxe and Deluxe rooms both very spacious. Fantastic beds - really comfortable and lots if high tec features in room. We had booked a Deluxe room for 2 separate stays and on the first we were upgraded to the Superior. If you are not looking for a hotel with outside facilities and swimming pool but well positioned in South Beach this is the place to stay. 5 minute walk to beach. The breakfast was not great but adequate and given that it was included in the room rate which is unusual for the U.S. it was very acceptable. Hotels in Miami are expensive so at the price we paid this was very good value for money.

Wonderful hotel in awesome location

Posted Dec 23, 2017
Hotel is small , modern and in a fantastic location. Right in the heart of South Beach. 1/2 block to the beach. Lobby is small but functional and breakfast was terrific! When we are in Miami again will for sure stay here!

Amazing Hotel

Posted Dec 12, 2017
We stayed at the Marlin for one night before a cruise and it was incredible. We had a corner suite room and the room was beautiful, spacious and the amenities first class. We had been traveling for over a week before our stay and it was the best nights sleep we have had so far! It’s close to the beach and shops and we felt safe at all times.

Great stay

Posted Dec 11, 2017
Pros: Comfort, size of the room and free breakfast
Location: Great for Miami South Beach
Very pleasurable stay at the Marlin, it's in a great position for exploring the South Beach area and it was very useful to have the free breakfast. The room was decorated to a high standard and was well equipped. I would highly recommend the hotel.

Great hotel for a stay in Miami Beach

Posted Dec 7, 2017
Pros: Super nice rooms, great staff and great location
Cons: nothing!
Location: Right in the heart of Miami Beach, the strip is down the road.
Cool little spot that's tucked in behind the main strip on the beach. Quiet when you need it and if you'd like to go out, it literally down the block.

The "MARLIN a DISAPPOINTMENT!"

Posted Nov 15, 2017
Pros: The staff was nice!
Cons: LOTS!!!!!!!!!!!
Clean hotel friendly staff, NO TOWELS or FACE cloths??? Very over priced for what was given , no volume on the TV and it shut itself off every 15 minutes took 1 1/2 days for someone to fix it. The room was on the first floor in the back and thru the night we'd get serenaded by the drunks around 2-3 am. All in all just loud much like South Beach was.

Dear Stephen, While we are thrilled that you so greatly appreciated the warmth and hospitality of our team, we regret that there were other details of the stay that fell short of your expectations. Although we trust that we were able to resolve these concerns as soon as we were made aware, we are disheartened that they so greatly impacted your impression of our hotel. South Beach is truly a vibrant destination and it is our hope that you would consider joining us again so that we might have the opportunity to win your heart in full. Warm Regards, The Marlin Hotel
