Marriott Vacation Club Pulse, South Beach
Ranked #31 of 212 Hotels in Miami Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 February 2011

PROS:
Oceanfront hotel
spacious rooms and bathrooms
very clean
excellent staff
complimentary happy hour
little outside noise can be heard in room except for elevator music that plays thru out hotel.
Free Wi Fi
NO RESORT FEE (rare in SoBe)
Edgewater does not have the feel of a hotel or resort. Instead, it feels more like a condo rental with daily maid service. The feeling of privacy is something to be appreciated.

CONS:
scratchy low quality sheets
cheap pillows
plumbing from other units loud enuf to wake you up in night.
squeaky bathroom door loud enuf to wake your partner up in night
cheap grocery store bought breakfast (pastries w preservatives in plastic containers)
The elevator music that is playing thru out hotel could be lower in volume for sleeping guests.

Dear Mooveest,

Thank you so much for your feedback. We really appreciate your comments. We are glad that your overall experience was a pleasant one.
We invested a considerable amount in top of the line linens and pillows, the breakfast was upgraded and moved to our beautiful rooftop terrace.
The music only plays during the day until the early evening hours. We are glad you enjoyed the level of service provided by our staff and the quality of our spacious guest accommodations.
We hope to welcome you back in the near future so that you can experience the improvements we made recently.

Just returned from one night at the Edgewater. Got a great deal on Travelzoo for $159 which included a cocktail hour and continental breakfast. Here's the deal - the location was great but the rest of the stay was just so so. It's a nice looking room with an awesome ocean view but maybe just a bit too new. The hotel had only been open a few weeks. The closet doors didn't open and there were still price tags on things. The amenities in the room were nice but the soap was strange - actually a little hard to use. Also the piped in music throughout the hotel was nice when you're walking back and forth to your room but we could still hear it in our room when trying to sleep. Walls on the 1st floor were not complete and created a very messy look. Cocktail hour was just wine, beer and chips. The breakfast was coffee, juice and croissants in a plastic container. Both were just held at the front desk - I think they cheapened the stay. We took advantage and both were included in our room rate but normally I believe it's an extra $18 per room. Definitely not worth that. The employees/managers were extremely hospitable and really went out of their way to help the quests. Alex in particular was awesome. The rooftop deck was very nice and offered a beautiful view of the beach. Would I return - absolutely but only if I got a great price like this again.

Dear 3Hundrd,

Thank you so much for your feedback! It is very much appreciated.
We took your comments seriously and made some immediate adjustments.
The music is now off at night and only plays during the day until early evening hours. We upgraded the breakfast experience and it is now served on our beautifull rooftop. The Happy Hour is done daily between 5:30 and 6:30 on the roof as well. Only in the rare occasion when the weather does not cooperate we will bring it inside.
We are glad you enjoyed the service of our staff and we hope to welcome you back sometime in the near future.

Fabulous position on ocean drive and rooftop terrace overlooking the beach. BOOKIT.COM were doing a 50% off special which surely cant last. The place isnt finished but its not a problem. Free bar at 530 every night was a great way to meet the neighbours and save a few $$ on south beach drinks, which it has to be said are not the cheapest. The staff in here are great , very laidback and happy to help.This has to be one of the best spots in town. Try and book room 503 , its worth the extra for the view from the sofa.

Recently stayed at the Edgewater for 5 nights during their "Grand Opening" special. The staff was wonderfully helpful, Alex, Andre, John and their GM (?), Frank were always at the ready to meet any needs we had. Although they are still tweaking and renovating, don't let that keep you away, the location is superb, the rooms are not only spacious for South Beach, but spacious over all. The linens on the bed were lovely, the furnishings new and trendy, lots of storage and very nice to have the frig and microwave in the room.

The FREE nightly happy hour (beer & wine) is a great way to meet the other guests, we ended up going out to dinner with another couple and had a fabulous time. The Roof Deck Happy Hour has wonderful views of the ocean as the evening sets and the deck is also very spacious, a great place to go during the day, bring your lunch and a nap, as there are wonderful & numerous teak lounge chairs, tables, chairs and umbrellas. We hope to go back again soon, as long as we can still afford it :) Maybe they'll start a VIP club for those of us who came for the Opening? *hint*, *hint*

We recently stayed at the Edgewater. Wonderful hotel. The rooms are spacious and very nicely appointed. We were upgraded from a studio that was very nice to a one bedroom that was even nicer. (The larger room was available and the upgrade was gratis) Ocean views, On Oceandrive but a slightly quieter block which was nice, close to the action but not sleeping above it. The hotel offered a happy hour each evening which was a great way to end the day and begin the evening with a chance to mingle with other guests and staff.
The staff was wonderful. Every effort was made by them to make our stay as perfect as it could possibly be.
I would highly recommend the Edgewater and we will stay there each time we go to SoBe in the future.
