Default Miami Marriott - Which one?

I will be on the Fascination in the fall and will be getting to Miami the day before. I have tons of Marriott points and am thinking of the South Beach Marriott. There are like 10 Marriott properties in Miami. Any reason NOT to stay at the South Beach Marriott? Any reason to stay at another Marriott (Key Biscane Bay for example)? We have dinner reservations at Emeril's which is in South Beach, so I'm leaning that way.

Thanks.

Boils down to preferential tastes really. Both are good and if you are planning on dining
at the " Bam" meister's, you will be going to South Beach anyways.

Mike:

Thanks. Think I'll book the South Beach Marriott. Any suggestion regarding whether to rent a car or just cab it. The distance from The Marriott to Loew's where Emeril's is is not walking distance, so I will need a ride. To/From airport to hotel to pier -- probably more convenient by taxi; probably cheaper to rent a car.

Thanks

Well CTMak,
I guess it boils down to dollars and cents. We rented a car from the pier, but they transported us by shuttle to the airport location. Not much time saving there. In your case, the rental cost is similar to the taxi rates from airport to hotel, hotel to Emeril's and back , along with the ride to the pier. Personally, I would enjoy another glass of wine, maybe a Port with dessert and let the taxi driver take the risk. Enjoy.

Thanks Mike. I agree and will do the cabs and a glass or 2 of a 1968 Ware's Tawny Port.

The Marriott at Biscayne is very nice and you can watch the ships roll in. Enjoy!
