"Fantastic Experience - highly recommend the Marlin"
I thought the Marlin was fantastic. It's almost like South Beach's best kept secret. The rooms are super modern, very clean and comfortable, and the hotel staff is superb. Everything in the room is controlled by an I-pad and the rooms are sound proof. This hotel is amazing, and if you don't stay there, you're missing out. It's also a block from Ocean […] Drive and the beach, and in the center of everything in Miami Beach. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Best Hotel Rooms Near Beach! Fancy!!!"
When we checked in the front desk clerk was friendly and handed us an IPAD! The IPad controls everything in the room from color changing mood lights in the ceiling (shower, bathroom, living room space, and bedroom area), automatic drapes, surround sound, a large TV in the wall behind a mirror, and the lighting of the artwork over the bed. One of my […] favorites was the shower with the color changing mood lights and the shower head that is in the ceiling of the shower!!! The room was extremely clean and comfortable. The bed just sucks you in with plush pillows and an awesome duvet. At night the hotel lobby is live and hopping with a small bar/club atmosphere. The bartenders and staff were very friendly. We got to meet the chef of the restaurant and he was extremely nice. Valet parking ran over a sign that was laying on the street with our vehicle and was rude when we showed him how irresponsible he was with our vehicle. When we told the hotel staff they said that the valet service is through an outside company and apologized and refunded us the Valet parking fees! Although Valet caused some scratches on the undercarriage of our Lexus we will still return to this hotel because it is that LEGENDARY! Oh and the location is great. Close to beach and many other popular clubs, bars, shopping, etc. located in the area within walking distance. We left our vehicle parked and walked everywhere. What a fun Trip and memorable Hotel!

Everything you would want and more. Clean, friendly, and the staff was great.Genuine Expedia guest review
I loved this hotel. Stayed for two nights. Room is very clean and nice with it's Ipad experience. Everything is controlled through an ipad. Staff is very friendly. The food at the restaurant is good too, but breakfast is not included. I would go back and stay here at anytime. Compared to other hotels in south beach, this hotel has an excellent quality […] to price ratio. The only drawback is the noise. They have a studio and if you are unlicky, they might have be having some recording sessions and the person runing the studio doesn't really care about the private guests when it come to the noise. Other than, i would 100% recommend this place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Tech & Comfort"
I would definitely stay at this hotel again. Although there was construction on the street in front of the hotel, it did not detract from the ambience of the lodging. Location is very convenient - all of SoBe is within walking distance. The iPad controlled room is a marvel of technology. It took me awhile (I am not a youngster!) but once figured out, […] it was fun! And the "hidden" TV is great...just have to find it. :o) The king size bed was comfortable and the shower great - the rain shower head took all the cares away. Overall, a great lodging experience.

Loved the hotel and room. The carpet in the room was very dirty and needs tobe cleaned, not sure why they would rent it out like that. Otherwise great vibe!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to beach"
We really enjoyed our stay at the Marlin. It's only a block or two from the beach and there are beach towels in the room with a bag that you can use. The room itself is amazing! Everything is controlled with an iPad (which the hotel provides). The room is very spacious and includes a sitting area. The lighting includes colored lights which can be programmed […] to go on/off (it's like your own disco). The only reason I didn't rate the hotel a 5 is because there is no pool, it's not directly on the beach & the elevator is old/tiny. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Marlin Hotel, Sobe"
Small, Art Deco remodel. Rooms are small but nice, large bathrooms. Hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. Central location for Sobe. A very pleasant stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Awesome, unexpected find!"
I had to travel to West Palm Beach for work on Xmas so my partner and I decided to make a holiday vacation last minute out of the trip and booked the Marlin hotel for it's clean look to the rooms, ergonomic & contemp design...also b/c it had a living space with a sofa. We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice, the entire room is a smart room […] controlled by an ipad so if you're a techie like me, then you'll get a kick out of the cool factor of being able to control every technical aspect of the room (tv, music, lights, ac, windows) with the complimentary ipad they give you during your stay. The TV is embedded into an oversized mirror, the lights can change to any color in the spectrum and their are even pre-sets to create different moods. There's is original artwork over the bed with lights built into it...all in all great cool factor. I travel all over the world for work and I was surprised to see just how much space they give you built into the wall for your suitcases. We were able to put two full sized suitcases, 2 backpacks in the suicase area and still have room in drawers and pull out shelves to line up our shoes and other misc. items. You are one block from the beach, and one block from Washington Ave depending on which way you go and the staff - both hotel and restaurant were extremely friendly and accommodating. Looking forward to the next time I visit Miami as this will def be my hotel of choice again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"May be the coolest hotel we've ever stayed in"
Everything about the Marlin blew us away for our first trip to Miami, starting with the price. The room featured so much tech it was ridiculous. They hand you an ipad when you walk in, and everything in the super modern room is controlled through it. Definitely the coolest hotel I've seen in a long time. And right in the heart of South Beach. Miami […] itself was OK, but the hotel was outstanding. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"We loved it !"
I usually stay at the Ritz, but wanted to try something new, and a little less expensive. I was pleasantly surprised. The location is great. Is there some noise, sure. A little but YOU ARE ON SOUTH BEACH. You have to expect some of that. The room was very large and very high tech (every guest gets an I pad that controls everything in the room). Great […] location between Ocean BLVD and Lincoln so we could walk from one area to the next. Long and short, the wife and I will stay there again the next time we go to South Beach. And we are both VERY picky. Do you get some of the amenities like the Ritz, no. We parked across the street, so that was nice. We did not pack much so we did not need help with bags. Never tried room service, we usually got back to late anyway well fed and plenty of adult beverages later. Feel free to give them a try ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
equipped with ipad control for everything in the room, really amazing.Genuine Expedia guest review
Hotel Marlin was amazing. I have stayed in many hotels in Miami and the hotel marlin is one of the best. The location is unbeatable (right on collins, one minute from the beach). The staff is INCREDIBLE and very accommodating! Alex has the best recommendations for any think you would want to do in Miami. The rooms are really clean and modern with an […] ipad that controls everything from lights to TV to drapes! I will definitely be staying here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Swank, high-tech hotel"
This hotel is awesome! Upon check-in guests receive an iPad, which controls everything in the room (lighting, temperature, TV, music, blinds, etc.). Rooms are modern decor, and with only 14 rooms in the entire hotel, it's relatively quiet and there's lots of privacy. The whole first floor is a recording studio, frequented by some celebrities (we saw […] an NBA player on our stay, and No Doubt & Aerosmith have recorded there). Despite that, the sound proofing in the hotel is pretty good and you can hardly hear it. We had no real issues with it. The location is ideal, one block away from Ocean Ave, and within walking distance of everything you'd want to see in South Beach. Parking is a bit of a pain, though. There's a public lot right across the street, but it's a bit pricey ($30/day for overnight parking). However, the convenience makes it worth the price. Hotel staff is very courteous too. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anybody staying in South Beach. I'll definitely return here if/when I come back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice Hotel, Bad Area"
This hotel is very and modern and the staff was superb except in one respect. They need more full-time security to prevent disturbances from drunks and other morons. We were woken up in the middle of the night on two successive nights by screaming and yelling. These incidents went on for a long time and the hotel management could have been a lot more […] proactive in quelling them quicker. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A Unique Experience you will Love"
It was my first time in Miami and I had a great time. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful in educating us on the area and fun things we could do. The hotel is unique in its interior design of the hotel as a whole and the rooms. Your room is controlled by the provided ipad. The ipad can do all the normal ipad functions as well as control […] the 60in TV, thr lights in the room (you can make it any color you want, including a constantly changing light show at any speed you choose), the lights in the room, and the illumination of the art work in the room. The bathroom was gorgeous and offers two distinct experiences, waterfall and massage. I would definitely stay there again if I go to Miami. It's literally one block from the beach.

"A very special place for open-minded people"
Positive: positively extravagant place, with very friendly and helpful personnel - very special hotel worth the stay (if you can handle the below ...) To be noted: As there are also rather creative, though overall upscale guests staying here (South Beach Studios located in the basement oblige), you might notice sweet smells every now and then at night […] in the hallways, or cross late-night visits ... Negative: the restaurant was abruptly closed a week before my arrival, so no way to get a breakfast or at least a coffee in the morning (though there are some nice, non-rip-off Cuban cafes nearby), nor (during 3 of 4 evenings I stayed) a late-evening drink at the abandoned bar - not in line with the 'hotel' category and the prices charged Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel for Couples"
From the moment my husband and I arrived at the Marlin hotel, it felt like a home away from home. The lobby decor is contemporary, warm, and inviting. We were immediately greeted and welcomed. The staff even took the time to sit down with us and help plan our stay in Miami. Our room was perfect! The size of the room (Studio D) was very comfortable for […] the two of us and immaculate. It was maintained throughout our entire stay. The iPad control system was efficient and pretty cool! The hotel is also secure. Visitors must have a code to enter. I recommend this hotel mainly for couples since there is a recording studio downstairs and the occasional loud music at night could wake little ones. It didn't, however, bother us. The Marlin Hotel will be at the top of our list on our next trip to Miami Beach! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The Marlin Hotel was awesome!"
I would definitely recommend staying at The Marlin! My sister and I stayed there for the weekend and were blown away. The location was perfect, the service was great and the room was amazing. The only thing you need to know if you are driving is that the valet parking isn't available yet so you have to park across the street. The ipad that controls […] the entire room is the best, lights, camera, action! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very clean and comfortable."
Very clean hotel, they made sure to go the extra mile in maintaining the rooms. And the rooms are very comfortable, the bed is great, and the setup is very chique. The staff was extremely helpful staff, they honored all of my requests, including letting me check out much later in the day. A few criticisms: no irons in the room, that was difficult. […] Also, it is definitely not a party hotel. need to punch a code to get inside the lobby. And I was hoping for a lounge of some sort in the lobby to grab a drink at night, but no-one inhabited the lobby the entire weekend. It looks like they have the capabilities, so hopefully in the future they will offer something. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

modern, high-class lookin hotel inside. everything can be controlled from the use of an ipad which is pretty cool. the staff was awesome and helpful. they were able to help me make use of my stay in miami beach & gave advice as to which spots were the best to go to. the only negative i have to stay (which is not really a big deal) was that some features […] of the ipad did not work such as changing the TV channels and opening/closing the drapes. this didn't really bother me as much since i was still able to change channels & open/close the drapes with their original controls. despite this, i will definately stay here again whenever i come back to miami beach :) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hip Euro style hotel in South Beach"
This is a hip, contemporary Euro style hotel in an art deco building. The hotel is small (3 floors) and owned by a record impresario, and the hotel reflects this fact. One enters into a public area decorated with music-related books and art that opens onto a dining room and bar. Behind this is the South Beach Recording Studio. The hotel reception office […] is on the 2nd floor and is lined with the CD covers of the music that has been recorded or mixed. My guest room had a enormous bed and large sectional sofa from which one could watch the super large, wall-mounted TV screen. I was given an I-Pad on arrival which controlled the lighting, A/C, TV, curtains etc. Toilet and shower were modern, exceptional and clean as a whistle. Neighborhood is alive at night with lots of restaurants & clubs. Hotel is 2 blocks from the beach. Very South Beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

The location is convenient to Miami Beach - do not expect a peaceful nights sleep as Collins Ave is used as a "drag strip" but hey it's Miami Beach The room was full of hi-tech kit - multi-coloured lights, huge mirror that turned into a TV all controlled via guests ipad - however the light grey carpet does not work - multi-stained and cigarette burns […] bedside - no thanks!

"Nice clean hotel"
Nice clean hotel love the room Love the way everything was controlled by the iPad Will defiantly come back!!!!!!Genuine Expedia guest review
When I booked the hotel it was advertised as having a restaurant and bar with 24 hour room service on both hotels.com and the hotel website. Now having stayed I can tell you there is no restaurant or bar. I haven't used the 24 hour room service but without any facilities I didn't see the point. I did call room service at about 8 one evening for a corkscrew […] which I believe should have been present in the room and was astonished to find they couldn't provide one, I had to go out and find a liquor store to purchase one myself. Don't get me wrong it's not all bad, Alex gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived and gave us some very good advice on the area. I just feel the whole 60" TV with limited cable and iPad controls are mere gimmicks and the hotel lacks in fundamental areas. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A great experience at the Marlin."
When booking my trip I was debating between one of the larger hotels and a smaller boutique style hotel. I decided on the smaller quaint Marlin. Just steps from the beach and close to great shopping and restaurants. The staff was amazing...very friendly and were always available to offer suggestions of places to check out in the city. In the rooms..everything […] is controlled by an ipad. Drapes, TV, lights etc. The Marlin also has a state of the art recording studio which has been frequented by some of the largest names in music. A very cool, trendy hotel that I would recco to anyone heading to South Beach. I'll definitely be staying there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
