Our bartender Carmese was amazing! She has such wonderful hospitality, she makes you feel at home. I loved watching her work and interact with all the guests including the little ones! She is such a breath of fresh air! She really took care of our group and was always very aware of the surroundings. She made sure everyone was taken...

Carmese and her entire staff are simply wonderful. Very attentive and always trying to put a smile on your face. Food was also really good. There was live soft rock music playing that just fit the mood of the bar and hotel perfectly.

My wife, daughter and I booked this hotel because of our frequent use of Marriott properties and because it was near the Ft. Lauderdale cruise port. Mistake. We were delayed by more than 15 hours in flying from New England to Florida by a snow storm. I alerted the hotel we would be very late. I even did an early...

One of the closest hotels to the Cruise Port that also offers parking and a shuttle to the ships. It has a nice lobby bar and a bistro. Its next to The Boatyard to additional dining and nightlife. Parking and the shuttle is arranged by airport park dot com.

The location is a huge selling point of this property. It's about a 20 minute walk to the beach. There is a restaurant and coffee bar in the lobby. A very safe location with numerous shops and restaurants within walking distance. I will stay again in April when I visit for business.

The only thing good about our stay was the location. It is in a good spot if you are getting on a cruise ship. Our room had a moldy/mildew smell. The other people we were traveling with had the same smell in their room. Everything at this place is also expensive. Three draft beers and a wine at the bar...

Have stayed at this hotel several times before our cruise. Debra, at the front desk was very friendly. We were given a room on the 12th floor facing the cruise port so we saw our ship first thing in the morning. BUT it was the noisiest night we've had. I'm assuming the air conditioner compressors were on the roof above...
