Art Deco bones and a rock & roll soul — that’s the Marlin Hotel, located in the throbbing heart of Miami Beach. Built by beloved architect Laurence Murray Dixon in 1939, the Marlin stood for South Beach cool under record producer Chris Blackwell in the 1990s, and in 2015 it got a full refresh.
Bed and Bath
The 14 modern guestrooms are a tech geek’s playground, starting with the 55-inch LED screens behind wall mirrors. But it’s more fun to play with the built-in musical “moods”; whether you choose Relaxing, Urban or Pop, you can count on top-notch sound, thanks to the Tannoy surround system, with subwoofer. The look is ultra-minimalist, with a muted gray and white palette, clean-lined white and chrome furniture and abstract Technicolor paintings. Bathrooms have rainfall showers with sumptuous William Roam products and plush robes.
Chef Michael Pirolo is at the helm of Bází, the hotel’s Asian-inspired restaurant serving up innovative fare including duck udon soup, pecan-topped baby bok choy and eggplant kobra kai. Make sure to stop by the sleek, fashion-forward bar for a molecular gastronomy-style cocktail.
How to Get There
Always a must stay when in south beach . Rooms are so comfy with a rain shower in bathroom. Staff is super friendly and very helpful. Right in the heart of all the south beach action beach , dining and nightlife .
This hotel was great, the location is great for night life, shopping and restaurants.
The room, the bed was excellent.
Staff very friendly. I will return to this hotel any time.
The only weir thing is that the lobby of the hotel if also a restaurant.
Stayed for 3 nights and locations is fantastic and rooms clean and modern.
The area can get quite lively and if your room as at the front as ours was, the street noise can be a distraction at night but does add the vibe of the hotel and area.
Check in was a little impersonal but would stay here again.
Great music history too around the building.
Good value for money by comparison.
