An ideal oasis for families who want all the creature comforts the Marriott brand guarantees coupled with the most dazzling views on South Beach, the Marriott South Beach is the best of the three Marriott properties in the area for the true “South Beach” experience. Located right on the ocean in the trendy SoFi district (South of Fifth Street), this luxury hotel features flat panel TVs, high speed internet access, 300-thread count sheets and caters to kids and businessmen with equal ease. The 228 guest rooms have king or two double beds facing the city or the surf and a number of oceanfront accommodations include a private balcony with unobstructed views of the sea.
Like many Marriott properties of this caliber, the Marriott South Beach offers private concierge level service and fully appointed desks en suite so working in South Florida’s playground is still a possibility. If you’re traveling with the kids, eight 400-square foot suites include a pull-out sofa bed, room for a crib or rollaway, and a separate seating area with a flat panel television. A mini refrigerator makes it easy to keep drinks and snacks on hand for a sunset cocktail party on the balcony or to have treats on hand at bedtime. Video game consoles are available at the front desk and in addition to a fast-casual poolside grill for the kids, an on site Starbuck’s Coffee bar makes mornings just a little easier for Mom and Dad.
Following a $4 million renovation, the oceanfront pool deck is the most exciting new feature at the South Beach Marriott. Two infinity-edge heated swimming pools overlook the golden sands of the Atlantic Ocean and offer plenty of room to stretch out and enjoy the view. Guests can sip a cocktail in the jacuzzi, a poolside massage or simply wander out to the beach and relax on a padded lounger. The Deco Blue Bar attracts travelers and locals who gather for tropical cocktails and snacks at happy hour. Steps away from the hotel, five star dining, exciting nightclubs and some of the best shops in town make it possible to enjoy all of South Beach without the added expense of a rental car. Perfect for families, business, or a romantic escape, the Marriott offers you a friendly oasis by the sea.
