Designed by the famous European architect Robert Swartburg in 1948, the Art Deco-inspired Marseilles Hotel displays vertical emphasis and a combination of flat and curved walls, use of glass blocks, neon, cove and porthole ceiling lighting, and cast-iron railings. The sun and warm seaside waters beckon from just outside the hotel's back door, where a narrow sundeck is fringed by gardens surrounding a 90-by-25-foot seasonal pool. The Poolside Tiki Bar offers drinks and lunch items, and beyond the pool, the hotel features a deep sundeck and a palm-tree grove with hammocks.
Inside the hotel, guests can enjoy the casual, street-front veranda of the Gavroche at the Beach Restaurant or the big-screen television, overstuffed couches, pool table, Art Deco paintings, and stained-glass panels of the Lobby Bar. Laundry facilities are available on site, and wireless Internet access is available throughout (surcharge). Limited self parking is available for a surcharge. Marseilles Hotel is a smoke-free property.
The 9-story Marseilles Hotel offers 117 guestrooms featuring understated gold tones, high ceilings, yellow accent walls and mahogany furniture. Amenities include cable television, telephone, in-room safes, rollaway beds (surcharge) and wireless Internet access (surcharge).
Accessible rooms are available.
Hotel is being entirely remodeled so there is lots of dust and corridors/elevators are totally trashed. Also, we found it hard to shower since there was almost no water running and AC extremely loud. Once the remodel is over, it's gonna be a great place to stay !Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, but construction work was a problem."
They should have told us they were under construction. Every morning at 7:30, the construction crews starting hammering, and sawing. The crew was hauling all kinds of stuff up the elevators, and many times we had to wait for a 2nd or 3rd elevator (which were also covered in dust and plaster), and the place to eat was on the street instead of the poolside […] where the atmosphere would have been more pleasant. They should have told us. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right by South Beach for family"
Right by the beach, close to Lincoln park so great shopping, eating places including Starbucks and McDonalds.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great placed for the Price"
They're upgrading the entire Hotel, they were putting in a new patio deck and upgrading the rooms, the only thing was that the bar and patio beach bar and grill was not open. Last year the hotel had alot more to offer. The staff were great always willing to offer help. The location of the hotel is great, short walk to Lincoln Rd,Genuine Expedia guest review
"cheap great local but noisey room. renovations"
booked for a cheap place near Ritz (where wedding we were attending was) so it was perfect for location. it's close to great food places but not quiet at all due to street noise. we ended up with a room facing the street up on the 8th floor (only 9 floors)...all back rooms/pool view were taken, they were nice trying to find us a quieter room but none. […] even with earplugs i didn't get a wink of sleep. too loud with the cars, music and motorcycles riding all night long. I'm a night owl but couldn't deal with the noise after 1-5am. Construction going on to the outside pool deck area so the pool bar and consession area were closed. access to beach right there, great but you have to pay extra to sit on a chair at the beach. Hammacks in back and it's quiet cuz no one is using the area. It's good for the price for a place to crash but not for light sleepers. Bar had tvs and pool table but nobody attending the bar all 3 nights (Sat-Mon). They staff is extremely friendly and I think all the renovations will be done and it'll make the place better but def a 2-3 star place. Not dirty just loud due to traffic.

"Place to stay for a party weekend"
Overall the experience was positive, but there were a few issues that caused me to be a little disappointed. I was here for the weekend and really only was looking for a place to put down my bags and a bed to crash in between parties. However, when we arrived, the room was about 95 degrees due to no air conditioning on. After we turned it on, it eventually […] cooled the room down but it was unbearable at first. Also, the carpets outside door and in the entrance way were disgustingly dirty and made me want to wear shoes at all times. The final and biggest issue for me was the fact that the tv didn't work at all and despite the multiple calls to the front desk, the same maintenance man came up to the room and rudely told us there was a problem with the satellite and it work again in 45 minutes. Once he left for the second time, I personally looked behind the tv and saw the wire coming from the wall was not only not connected, it had been completely stripped of its connector piece to the back of the tv and therefore was completely useless. Really all he had to do was replace this part but he did not have the foresight to do so. We just left the tv off the remainder of the trip. This really ticked me off and probably clouded my opinion of the hotel a little more than the reality of the situation would have otherwise. Other that this, the hotel was everything i expected to be for the price and could be pursueded to stay here again Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"convenient location, sopping, close to the beach"
great location, swimming pool, multilingual staff, food is not very good, it has been under construction when i was there i think it was because September is an off-season and they are getting ready for ChristmasGenuine Expedia guest review

Room 806 is 10 stars, friendly people, I recommend. Near Beach, nar all activitiesGenuine Expedia guest review

"I would stay here again."
The hotel was okay. I was very dissapointed to find that, despite what it said on Expedia, the fitness center was closed as was the Tiki Bar out beyond the pool on the way to the beach. We were forced to go to the next door hotel to get an adult beverage. Sort of a pain, especially since they show the open Tiki Bar on the site. They are renovating the […] hotel, which also was not noted on Expedia. The room was fine, clean and the shower was great. The door on my closet obviously was broken at some point so they just took it completely off. Gave it more of a "motel" feel than a hotel. I went to the beach the first day and they are also renovating along South Beach. Many bulldozers and other equipment - apparently regrading sand? We were charged for the beach chairs, as expected but told it would be $15 for two chairs plus $15 for an umbrella. We skipped the umbrella. Seemed like a scam but not run by the hotel. There is open air restaurant as you enter the hotel and the two hostesses we encountered were clueless. I asked if there was a ramp and one didn't seem to know. No bellman was out there when we arrived so we had to shchlep our own bags up the two short flights of stairs. The bar at this restaurant had not brand name alcohol, so we went across the street. Overall, I thought the hotel was decent, and, given the right price, would stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Please don't stay here!"
Construction noise all day long..... Oceanview rooms are ugly and wayy too simple. Do NOT give this hotel more money than u need to. A very regrettable stay for us. Our room was recently renovated and the walls and floor still had drywall dust on the floor, windows and walls. The lamps did not have lightbulbs. The water was cut off the first day we […] were there. We were there for hurricane Isaac and the staff was not successful at communicating with guests on any plans the hotel had or at even answering the phones at the front desk, called from my room 8 times to no avail. The hotels to both sides looked better from our 7th floor room. We were in oceanview room 716...was supposedly "renovated" but was plain white with the same old scratched furniture, tube TV, squeaky king bed, and ugly lamps with no lightbulbs. Horrible stay, I'm hoping management reads this. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not worth it!!!"
The positives: Good location, close to shopping and restaurants. Close to the beach, the beach is right behind the hotel. The negatives: Hotel needs some renovations. Our room in particular was "updated" but it was small. I had reserved for a king bed and at check in, they told me they didn't have any rooms available and they gave me a double. Not ideal […] since it was just my boyfriend and I. The staff was not accommodating in the matter and had an attitude. The ice machine was not working so we had to go all the way down to the basement for ice, which is where the laundry is done and it's creepy down there. The safe in our room was not working. I called down to the reception and told me that there was nothing they could do. We went to the concierge to ask him for recommendations on activities and he didn't seem interested or helpful. My suggestion to anyone considering this hotel is that you spend a little more and get an all around better service and a more enjoyable experience. My boyfriend and I plan on returning to south beach soon but WE WILL NOT return to Marseilles hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Comfortable, attractive, great loction"
Six family members stayed the weekend. Our stay was generally very good, but we had two minor complaints; the desk staff and so-called concierge knew very little about the surrounding area, and there were no newspapers whatsoever available in the hotel. Two of us stayed an exrtra night at the South Seas hotel next door, and it was better: same price […] (off season), rooms very similar, but better pool area, breakfast included, and free New York Times!

"Its a great place to have fun and not be bothered"
I got a room for the weekend and had friends over at the pool and in the room, No problems and no complains. It is pretty old inside but I stayed for the location pool and beach, not the room. The beds are kinda hard but if you have been partying you wont mind.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok but not great"
I expected the hotel to be better. The rooms were livable but some were better than others. We booked two rooms for our family and one room was in a much better condition than the other. I believe it is because only a certain part of the hotel has been renovated. Overall, halls look old and kind of dirty. Additionally, the first morning of our stay […] we were woken up at 8am with some repairs happening on our floor without any prior notice by the hotel or apologies.

Staffs are not helpful when I was there. I saw alot of bar girls hanging around in and out hotel and it is danger to my kids. I got one room with the AC problem and I had addressed it to hotel and they didn't fix it.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Needs some work, but definitely worth the money!"
I stayed at this hotel with my fiancee for 3 nights, from May 30th to June 2nd. Overall, we had a pleasant experience at this hotel and would recommend it to others who were looking for an affordable hotel in a good location. We arrived at the hotel just past midnight and had no trouble checking in. The room and bathroom were a bit outdated, but it […] was generally very clean. Our room also had a small kitchenette and 2 closets. The walls did not see to be insulated very well as we were able to hear other people outside of our room. The hotel has a pool in the back which was always clean during our stay. There was also a lounging area within a garden. From the pool and garden, you can then walk out onto the beach. In summary, I would recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a affordable hotel in a good location and won't be spending much time in their room like we did.

"Too Noisy Room"
The hotel is in a great location but outside was too noisy. It was dififcult to sleep with the noisy on the street beside the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Room was ok to have a good night's sleep. Rather small though. Bathroom was small too. It was clean and we had a nice ocean view from our room on the fifth floor. There was construction going on, which I understand is to maintain and improve the hotel. Hotel needs renovation. Staff was friendly and polite.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Price is right if you are not looking for much"
Good for the price & location but needs work overall. Looks like they may be making some improvements that are well needed. For the amount of time you spend in your room it is a decent hotel. But if you plan on staying by the pool and using your room, i would look around at other nearby hotels. We got engaged and our family was trying to send a bottle […] of wine or champagne to our room and service desk was of no help what so ever. :-( Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
great location, good price, clean, old but nice enoughGenuine Expedia guest review
We were lucky enough to get one of the renovated rooms. It was comfortable. The Lobby bar was never open and the beach bar area was boring with unfriendly help. In the evening hours the hammocks were being used by the homeless to sleep in. I did not feel at all safe there and wound not recommend it. A pair of my husbands sandals were stolen from ouy […] side of our room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Rooms are very small and dirty! Staff was okay. Not very helpful. Ice machine was broken and the mod told us we had to wait for it to fill again. The tiki bar was suppose to have happy hour everyday and the bartender lied to us and said only on weekends. Pool area is a joke! Just a cheap hotel that I would never ever stay at again. I came home and washed […] everything we brought down because I thought the room had bed bugs. LOOK ELSEWHERE!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Ok for broke college kids!"
YIKES!!! I'm a roll with the punches type of lady...especially in beautiful Miami where the room or hotel shouldn't be that important because you should be outdoors enjoying everything else. However, this was the worst hotel I've ever stayed at. I was in Room 509 and stayed for 4 nights. Listen guys I've been in one room off the highway type places, […] and lavish five stars. This place was sorely lacking!! Filthy carpets, dusty broken and disgustingly soiled vanetian blinds (those things are replaceable for like $2) the bathroom had a foul mildew odor. The tub always backed up, so showering always became a semi-tub situation because the water would be up to the ankles within 5 minutes, and my poor husband also non-complainer would be second in line taking a shower in my old water to his ankles because it took about 45 minutes for the water to go down. There is NO ventilation in the bathroom, so the place became a steamer in 3 minutes flat...no biggie Just open the window right? Nope wrong again, it was broken and I had to prop it up with my can of shave gel. That worked out well...until it fell out the window!! Thankfully the staff went to room 409 and was able to retrieve it for me. That was very thoughtful, as I depended on the can for dear life! Day two we found a pacifier under the bed (not travling with a baby) so cleanliness is lacking. Bed was painful, and LOUD. On a positive tip, the beach access was great, and the cocktails too. Not worth the bargain. Go elsewhere Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not a family hotel"
The hotel is very very old and shabby and they advertise an exercise room that is non existent. In our room, the TV didn't work (you had to move it from side to side until some channels came in), the remote didn't work, there were not enough outlets to have all of the lights, the TV and minibar plugged in at the same time. Walking barefoot on the carpet […] left your feet black. The shower was in serious need of repair- the water temp was uncontrollable. The knobs were so loose and water dripped out everywhere. I had to shower in my parents' or my sister's room. (We rented 3 rooms there- each having their own issues.) I did ask twice to switch rooms but there was no other available I was told. This was probably true- being the holiday week. Aside from the physical/premise issues, I felt that we were robbed of a day because of a big spring break type party being hosted at the hotel on our first full day there. The party was all day- started at 11am- with loud music, drunk half naked obnoxious kids paying a fee to take over the hotel lobby, pool and beach areas. I could not take my kids to the pool for the whole day and had to either stay in the room or leave the hotel. I was upset about this because my vacation days are precious few and we plan them out. Had I known this was going to be happening, I would have opted for a different hotel. We walked down the hotel strip and ours was the only one with this type of party going on for the weekends. I would not return Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The website said there was a fitness room, this was under renovation when we arrived. The beds were uncomfortable, the bathroom was cramped due to the position of the door. The bar inside was not staffed until very late in the evening. The staff were pleasant and we did enjoy the pool and bar area outside. However the Hotel inside was quite depressing […] and in need of an update. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"A mediocre hotel ..."
On the whole, a middling to mediocre experience. Location was just right though - within a few blocks walking distance of the conference I was attending at the Convention Center. The rooms were old, and the bathroom showed its age - not even as good as a Motel 6 in most places. Cracked paint, some chipped tiles, dingy overall. There was a gap between […] the door and floor, leading to noise coming into the room when people walked by and were talking a bit loud. If this were a vacation trip, I would be far more disappointed, but for a business trip (where I was not in the room much), it was just okay. Most disappointing was that I forgot a hanger from my expensive Samsonite carry-on (has a good fit inside the case) in the closet. Two or three calls later, I have given up trying to get it back - I always seem to be calling at the wrong time and the front desk will not take messages for the cleaning staff. Oh, well. The restaurant is pretty decent though, but it was very inconvenient not being able to bill the meal to my room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the second time I've stayed at Marseilles because of the location and price...price is not as good as it once was, so this may be my last stay. As others state, it's an older hotel and needs a great deal of updating. The pool, tiki bar, hammocks, and beach access are great! It's close to many restaurants and shops (Lincoln Rd), but be prepared […] to walk quite a bit if you want to spend every night on Ocean Drive (or cab-it). The staff seems friendly, but doesn't always respond promptly. Examples of issues I had: Safe battery died with my electronics inside, kitchenette sink trickled all night, a/c didn't cool well, tv didn't work well, my room was next to elevators so lots of noise...I like to have fun, too, so I don't complain much about noise unless it's after 2am. I would recommend Marseilles if you get a good rate and don't plan on staying in your room, but want to be close to everything and save some money to eat, drink, and shop!

"Good Locale, Very Noisy"
Depending on what you want, this might be the place! Beach on one side, busy street on the other. Great access to the beach, close to Lincoln Rd Mall, and many other places on Sobe. Noise is definitely at a premium! It comes through from outside very easily so don't stay here if you are awakened easily and want a good night's sleep. Doors close very […] loudly too so the late night neighbors may also awaken you. Staff was very helpful in storing luggage since we arrived before check-in time. Helpful, too, in getting a cab for trek back to airport. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Tired "Holiday Inn" on South Beach"
I went during Ultra Music Fest '12. The first morning I went to the beach at sunrise and saw 3 people sleeping in the pool area (too much partying) inside the gate of the hotel. The place was typical South Beach, small room, tired furnishing but in the heart of all the action. Plenty of closet space - would be better served if it was living space. The […] TV was a 32" box set, but you're not there to watch TV. The price was neither high nor low so I can't complain. This is not exactly the place you want to bring your significant other, but adaquate if you're just in town to party and not in search of plush bedding and top shelf room service.

"i left the property"
after attempting to check in a little after 3pm, being told my room was not ready, please wait just 15 minutes... fast forward an HOUR AND A HALF to 4:30pm I asked to see a manager. A manager appeared to say the room was ready and he was sorry but when people party and get drunk in a room there is nothing they can do to get them out. That Florida law […] states they cannot make them leave. When I protested then did you charge them for this night ??? He said no, that there was just nothing they could do, this was South Beach and you know how that goes... I told him I do well know as I used to live on SoBe, but I also know how to run a business and that is the most riduculous excuse I have ever heard. Was just ready to check into my room. My room while it looked fine, was saturated with cigarette smoke. I attempted to turn the A/C down to see if that and an open patio door would clear it and the thermostat was set to a default of 70. I went downstairs and turned in my key, got the managers name, advised that I would not be staying and why and left the property. Checked in at the Shelbourne which I have stayed in before. The hotel is listed as a completely non smoking property, clearly they have serious proper management problems. I reported this by phone to hotels.com, so I expect that this charge has been removed.

"So. Miami Beach Hotel - Lower Cost Place to Stay"
I found the hotel without much trouble, but as I drove down from Tampa, found that parking your car was a real problem. Little to no parking in this area. Best to take a taxi from the airport. The room was comfortable and I actually found the bathroom window opened to allow in the great ocean breezes. Lots of good restaurants in the area, no room service, […] but easy to order and take to your room for a quiet meal. Since the cost was way below other local hotels, was quite comfortable, a few grades above a Motel 6, but cost made it quite fine. I'd recommend this hotel and would stay again at this hotel.

The hotel was u dergoing renovations while we were staying there and unfortunately we were in an unrenovated room.
