    The Marlin is the Rock n Roll Hotel of South Beach. This was our first time staying in South Beach and I'm glad I found this Hotel through Jetsetters! Pros: Great Location- near many bars, clubs, and restaurants and a block away from the Beach; Friendly Service- loved how the hotel manager gave us recommendations to places to go in SOBE; Beautiful Room- Décor was all white, TV in the mirror, waterfall shower, and super comfy beds; iPad- You get an iPad to control the room and go online! Cons: No Pool- but they do provide a beach bad and towel for you to enjoy the beach.

    The Marlin is a hotel that is as confusing as it is crazy cool. It has the appearance on an inviting South Beach Art Deco hotel, but the interior public spaces have a draft and abandoned feel to them. The doors have key codes, the eclectic lobby is stark empty, and I frankly didn't see anyone else anywhere, except in very brisk passing. Where is everyone? Also, reception is in some weird side office on the 2nd floor, down a hallway that looks like it's from Star Wars (which, OK, that parts a major plus!). The rooms are awesome, tech everything - tech-tastastic! But this place seems geared for those silent VIPs sneaking in and out of the vaulted South Beach Studios door in the back of the lobby. And not being a rock-god myself, I think I'd feel uncomfortable coming back to stay here again.

    When I first visited South Beach in the late ’90s, this was one of the coolest little hotels on South Beach. The pastel exterior is the epitome of the classic Art Deco boutique hotels the beach is famous for. It’s just been renovated and has reopened with a ton of techie features in the rooms. When you check in, the hotel gives you an iPad to control the lights, the blackout shades, the audio and the TV, which is hidden in the big mirror on the wall. (You can also use it like a regular iPad to surf the web, etc.) There’s a famous recording studio in the building (and yes, they use it, often throughout the night) and a rock and roll theme running through the decor. There are Taschen books on Bob Marley and Jimmy Hendrix by the beds, and the sound systems in the rooms are some of the best I’ve ever encountered in a hotel.
