We were back at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay for the second year in a row, and again we were generally very pleased by our visit there. First, top marks go to the hotel staff -- from the front desk to the restaurant, most everyone we encountered was both friendly and effective. The hotel also has a nice design style to it, and doesn't follow the cookie-cutter standard of most Marriott properties.
The rooms seemed a little small, but not unreasonably so, and having a balcony and a view of the bay did a good job of making up for the room size. I was surprised to find that WiFi wasn't available in the room -- a disappointment in an era when many people travel with iPads and other devices without an Ethernet port. On the other hand, the room did have a good number of available outlets for plugging in devices to recharge. Overall, nice, comfortable, and functional.
The cafe restaurant was reasonably nice, again having an original menu rather than the standard Marriott fare. Very nice was the option of either sitting indoors or lounging outside just steps from the water. We chose the latter and enjoyed several lunches sipping mojitos and watching the boats go by. For breakfast we ate in the concierge lounge, which offered pretty typical fare but with the addition of an espresso machine and very nice views. The hotel lobby also has an Illy coffee bar for your morning pick-me-up.
The location of the hotel is just OK -- it was a convenient walk to the places we needed to be; however there seemed to be relatively few shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity. One fortunate exception is the nearby NoVe Kitchen, which serves pretty good Pan Asian cuisine (with indoor and outdoor seating) until 3am.
