Beware of hidden costs at the Marriott at Miami Airport! Sep 05, 2010
Its pretty difficult to find reasonably priced comfortable accommodations in Miami. Especially so over holiday weekends when every hotel seems to hike up their rates. So when the Marriott at the Airport advertised a buy two get one free offer over the Labor Day weekend, I jumped at the offer.
My first impression of the hotel was pretty favorable. It seemed like a secure location. The lobby was very aesthetically done. I loved the color scheme and all the décor. It looked plush and very comfortable.
But then things began to go downhill. (only financially, I admit)
First of all, we were informed that the room that we had requested was only available with a King size bed – even though I had requested for two double beds. So, if we did want two beds in the room, we would have to upgrade to a “Pure” room. Which essentially is a room with an air purifier. For an extra $20 a day.
Next, we were informed that Parking is charged at $15 a night. This to me, was totally outrageous. The hotel wasn’t in the populated areas of South Beach or Downtown. There was no reason for them to charge additional parking fees.
And then came the final blow. Internet was available – but charged at $15 a day!
My only complaint was that none of this was mentioned on their website in clear terms. But then I guess I only have myself to blame for assuming that things like Parking and Internet would be free in a well known chain of hotels like the Marriott.
The room itself was quite regular. Nothing fancy at all. A comfortable double bed.. lots of lamps.. an ironing board.. a nice LCD TV. I’ll give them brownie points for two things though. Dozens of plug points all over the room.. And Bath and Body Works goodies in the shower!
The hotel has an onsite restaurant and a Starbucks outlet as well. The restaurant offered some nice breakfast options but with iHop just round the corner, there was no way I could breakfast any place else!
The hotel is located conveniently… just a few miles from all the major attractions in the city.
So apart from the unexpected costs, it was a good deal.
