Miami Beach’s Marriott Stanton South Beach

May 2, 2015
2015 / April 2015

Arrival/Check-In: The property was easy to find, with an ideal South Beach location on Ocean Drive and a large, bright sign. As we arrived, the valet greeted us and the doorman escorted my colleague and me into the lobby. He then followed us to the front desk with our luggage. The front desk attendant was attentive and friendly, and I was checked in in under 10 minutes.

Guest Quarters: The king guestroom at the Marriott Stanton South Beach was spacious and stylish. The simple décor made for a clean, crisp atmosphere with white bed linens, light-colored furniture and hardwood floors. There was a large desk with adequate working space for a business traveler. The desk area had a comfortable wheeled chair and a bright desk lamp. I enjoyed the private balcony area which overlooked the hotel pool and beach. In the bathroom, there was a glass shower equipped with a large rainforest showerhead. I appreciated the powerful hair dryer, found under the large sink and vanity area.

Services/Amenities: The hotel has several dining options. I enjoyed breakfast and an evening cocktail at the hotel’s beachfront Deco Blue Restaurant. If you are looking for something sweet, the property has Dolcezza, which offers gelato, handmade chocolates and confections. For a quick coffee or snack, there is a Starbucks conveniently connected to the property. The spacious pool area offers a wonderful view of the beach and ocean. Food and beverages are available to guests at the pool and on the beach. Near the pool, inside the hotel, guests can relax at the hotel’s spa or exercise in the well-equipped fitness center.

The Experience: The Marriott Stanton South Beach is an excellent hotel for a business or leisure traveler. The location is ideal as it is near some of South Beach’s best shopping and dining. Overall, the room was spacious, well-kept and clean. I appreciated the simplicity and chic-ness of the hotel, and I would certainly stay at the property again.
