Bottom Line

With a downtown location near corporate offices and the Port of Miami, the Courtyard is a convenient mid-range option for a business trip or pre-cruise stay. The 14-story hotel is smoke-free and features an outdoor pool, workout room, self-service cafe and both self- and valet parking. Rooms are spacious, if generic, and come with free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges, and flat-screen TVs. This is a corporate chain hotel and the decor reflects that.

Oyster Hotel Review

Courtyard Miami Downtown Brickell Area

Scene

No-fuss business hotel

The Courtyard's large lobby looks and feels like it belongs in a corporate chain hotel -- which this is. Guests move rapidly from the check-in kiosks to the elevator banks, stopping briefly to print a boarding pass or grab a quick bite at the cafeteria-style bistro. There are potted plants around the seventh-floor pool, but the feel is definitely more urban than oasis, thanks to the concrete and views of surrounding skyscrapers.

Location

Colorless street in Downtown Miami near the cruise port

Although major destinations including the Adrienne Arsht Performance Center and James L. Knight Arena are technically within walking distance, the Courtyard is on a street filled with high-rise office buildings that isn't particularly appealing for pedestrians. South Beach and the airport are both within a 20-minute drive. Guests without a car can take advantage of the nearby MetroMover, a free electric train that loops through the entire downtown area. The Port of Miami where cruise ships dock is a five-minute drive away.

Rooms

Basic corporate decor

The Courtyard's 208 rooms and suites are generously sized. Overall, rooms feel like the mid-range chain hotel rooms that they are. Handy features include free Wi-Fi, mini-fridges and flat-screen TVs. On higher floors, wall-to-ceiling windows offer views of the Miami skyline. Bathrooms are small and utilitarian.

Features

Free Wi-Fi and an outdoor pool with skyscraper views

The Courtyard is a convenient and competitively priced choice for guests whose main priority is quick access to the cruise port and downtown businesses offices. Free Wi-Fi and a large, well-equipped business center make it easy for business travelers to stay connected. The outdoor pool has skyscraper views (but an unattractive concrete surround), and the small gym has modern cardio and weight-training equipment.
