Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay

Posted on April 19, 2018 by under Travel.    

I’m so grateful for all of my Marriott points. Brian and I got to stay at a very nice hotel in Florida, close to the Port of Miami, before and after our cruise. It didn’t cost us anything since I had enough points to cover both stays.

Here are some pictures of the room that we got the night before our cruise.

Untitled

The room itself wasn’t anything fancy but that view was spectacular.

Untitled

We loved the view so much we had to selfie in front of our window.

Untitled

Check out this view!

Untitled

Here’s a view of the marina just outside our hotel.

Untitled

From our window we could see the Venetian Causeway (closest) and MacArthur Causeway (further one) and the Port of Miami.

Untitled

The Venetian Causeway is closest to our hotel and is one of the ways you can get to South Beach. Except, sometimes traffic gets really backed up when the bridge (a double-leaf bascule bridge) is open for the larger boats to pass through.

Untitled

Brian and I did some exploring around the hotel on that first day. Here’s a view of the marina from the hotel terrace.

Untitled

Oh, and I found a ping pong table but had no one to play with.

Untitled

We also found a giant connect four game.

Untitled

And a giant chess board.

Untitled

It was a pretty quiet Saturday night at the hotel.

Untitled

Not a soul in sight at the pool.

Untitled

The hotel gym is on the same level as the pool with a nice view of the marina.

Untitled

The next morning we woke up to see our ship at the port.

Untitled

This giant Adirondack chair was on the terrace right outside the hotel restaurant so, of course, we had to take a pic of me in it.

Untitled

Pictures of our yummy pre-cruise breakfast…

We took some selfies out on the restaurant patio after breakfast before heading up to our room for a quickie Facebook Live video.

Untitled

We took yet another selfie with our fabulous 31st floor view as the backdrop when we got back to our room. Then we did our Facebook Live.

Untitled

Here’s the quickie FB Live video from that morning.

When we got back to the Marriott after our cruise we got a room on the 23rd floor. Not as high as our top floor room from before, but it actually had a balcony and better view. We could see bay and city views from our room.

Untitled

This is a view of the bay.

Untitled

Here are some pics of the city view.

Untitled

Here’s the view at night, with the bay on the left and the city on the right.

Untitled

Here’s a pic of the bay at sunrise.

Untitled

Untitled

And the marina beneath our room at sunrise.

Untitled

Here’s our messy room.

Untitled

Because of my rewards status, we also got free breakfast in the mornings. Here are some pictures of the nice breakfast buffet at the hotel restaurant each morning.

Untitled

This is the omelet station where you can also get fresh pancakes and waffles.

Untitled

I didn’t have pancakes or waffles but I kind of wish I had because I really wanted to try the rum-infused maple syrup.

Untitled

All sorts of breakfast foods — regular and cheesy potatoes, bacon, sausage etc.

Untitled

Fruit on the left, cereal bar and breads on the right.

Untitled

All sorts of breads and pastries.

Untitled

Fruit and smoked salmon.

Untitled

My breakfast.

Untitled

After we ate our breakfast, we got some pics of the beautiful sunrise.

Untitled

We really enjoyed our stay at the Miami Marriott Biscayne Bay. It’s a beautiful hotel and the location is perfect. Next post we’ll tell you about the exploring that we did on our first night in Miami and our visit to South Beach.
