To the point This is our review of the Residence Inn by Marriott Miami Beach South Beach hotel, well suited for families visiting Miami Beach.

After a stay at the Element Miami International Airport and a family trip to the Everglades, we decided to spend a night at the Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach.

Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach - Location

The Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach is located in Miami Beach just off Venetian Way (one of the arteries connecting Miami Downtown to Miami Beach).

You are less than 5 minutes walk from the shops on Lincoln Road. It takes about 15 minutes to reach the beach.

Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach - Reservation

We booked our stay at the Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach at the last minute. At the time of our visit, the hotel rates were particularly high. We were lucky enough to get our night for 35,000 points.

This hotel is a good candidate to use the free hotel night certificate that comes with the Marriott Bonvoy® American Express®* Card.

Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach - Room

Travelling with two children, the choice of a room with two queen beds is essential. Although we are on the street side, we will not be disturbed by the noise.

Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach-09

This standard room has a nice size and a sofa bed: enough to accommodate up to 6 people (or 2 adults and 4 children).

The bathroom has a large shower with products in reusable bottles (a good point for the ecology).

Very nice: there is a Traders Joe’s grocery store across the street (this grocery store accepts American Express and therefore the American Express Cobalt® Card to get 5 points per dollar). A little further on is a Publix grocery store.

The rooftop pool at the Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach is excellent and offers beautiful views of Miami. On the other hand, the air conditioning outlets are rather noisy.

Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach - General Impression

The Residence Inn Miami Beach South Beach hotel ticks all the boxes in my opinion for a family stay in Miami Beach without blowing the budget. The only regret: the resort fee imposed by the establishment (but paid off if you go to the beach).
