There's nothing to walk to from it. It's less than a 5 minute cab ride from Bayside Marketplace and the Port of Miami (well under $10 with tip), but as the neighborhood isn't the best and there are several major construction projects in the area you do not want to attempt to walk it.
MetroMover is another option. It's a free automated, elevated train that runs through downtown Miami, but I only cautiously recommend that during the daylight hours, and only with a large group - NEVER take it alone or at night!
If you're looking for a Marriott property, a nicer Marriott in downtown Miami is the JW Marriott... http://marriott.com/property/propertypage/miajw
The JW Marriott is also about a 5 minute or so cab ride from Bayside and the Port of Miami, but is in a bit nicer neighborhood with a Morton's, and Gordon Biersch across the street, and a Capital Grille a few blocks away.
These are all of the decent downtown Miami hotels, some nicer, and much more expensive than others...
