Have a Sunshine State adventure in Aventura. The new AC Hotel by Marriott Miami Aventura puts you among a host of things to do in the Miami metropolitan area, along with keeping you in comfort throughout your stay. You’ll be invited to savor fresh-baked pastries at breakfast; sample tapas and cocktails in the lounge; and work out in the fitness center, overlooking the fourth-floor pool deck. Your room’s cozy bed is thoughtfully dressed in fresh linens and topped with plush pillows. Hot and cold breakfast items are served each day at AC Kitchen, such as pastries, egg tarts, yogurts, muesli and croissants, along with Nespresso coffee. AC Lounge opens for dinners of tapas, plus craft beers and cocktails. Alternative dining options abound locally, at the mall and beside area golf courses. You’ll be all rested up to set out and get started on your new experiences, whatever those experiences may be. Perhaps you’ll hit the third largest mall in America for some shopping, take on the slots at Gulfstream Park Racecourse & Casino, see the Dolphins play at Hard Rock Stadium, or check out the Miami Auto Museum. If you’re particularly adventurous, take advantage of the proximity to South Beach, the Keys and the Everglades. Learn how to kite surf; sign up for a paddle-boarding excursion; or zoom around on an airboat, in the hopes of encountering one of Florida’s native gators in the wild.
In the Area

How to Get There
The cruise company had booked this hotel and I wasn’t keen. However what a fabulous surprise. Amazing lobby. Fantastic room. Just loved our sink in the room. Separate shower and loo. Coffee machine. Arrived late in the evening and had drinks and food at the bar. Breakfast was $15 per head there was so much choice.
Our friends went to the local Pancake House and the hotel mini bus took them and would have picked them up but decided to walk back.
All staff we came across were lovely. 👍
I am not unlike most people - I don't mind paying a premium for good service. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect to avoid spectacularly terrible service.
I paid in advance for my stay (to the tune of several hundred dollars). Upon arrival my card was taken (for incidentals) and I checked in without issue. Days later, I was stopped after arriving close to midnight and told that they had made a mistake and not swiped my card for the incidentals deposit and that I would not be allowed access to my room until I paid $33.
I travel often for work and have been traveling for work non-stop for 4 months. Mistakes happen. Never in all of my trips, have I encountered a Tiffany. I have never been locked out of a room that was paid for in the middle of the night, nor have I been told I would be "escorted" and supervised to correct a hotel mistake, nor have I been talked to in such a threatening and hostile manner ("I didn't have an attitude, but I might have one now.")
Imagine walking up to reception, and hearing an employee talking about you to other employees. Now imagine that the employee continues to talk about you in your presence.
The hotel itself is nice. You will like the sheets, the bar, the pool, the fitness center, but you will leave regretting your choice if you encounter such a person. My vote is stay away.
The first thing I noticed is how friendly the staff are. Even when I went to reception to request some milk for my tea at 03.00! Thank you to Edlyn Laurent for helping me to get my English tea fix!
All the staff have been professional, efficient and kind.
A relatively new hotel in an office complex just off a shopping plaza.
Large open lobby with an attractive/enticing bar.
Wonderful staff - dog-friendly.
The rooms are very interesting - minimumalistic/modern, - wall paper in two shades of grey; separate toilet; ceiling "rain" shower; great bed; glass & Corum abundant; fast, silent elevators.
Functional, relaxing and comfortable.
Stayed here for one night before a cruise, staff lovely and friendly, limited choice with food in the evening, arrived late and it was bar snacks, saying that, the beef slider my partner had and the chicken slider I had were very nice, just a bit too generous for us, you get three sliders and one portion would have been enough for us both. Breakfast I found unusual but very nice, mainly all buffet, no cooked bacon and eggs apart from scrambled eggs to order (sorry did not try) there was lovely fresh juices and fruits, yoghurt was nice and what I found unusual but nice was the savoury or sweet breakfast tarts,(think quiche or fruit spongy flan) egg, cheese and bacon or veggie version with spinach, both lovely, the fruit tarts were banana or blueberry. Not keen on room frosted glass doors on loo and shower, but that is just a personal thing, room was clean, quiet and nice Korres toiletries were provided. Location possibly quite good (we did not get out,till time to go for cruise) and the hotel run a shuttle to shopping mall, which we might have done had it not been Sunday
