“Great Beachfront Location and Friendly Service”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

My husband and I stayed here one night prior to departing Fort Lauderdale on a cruise. We would definitely return to this hotel in the future for a similar visit. We were both struck by how friendly and helpful the staff was -- I mean, EVERYONE. Often at hotels, we find that some staff members are friendly and helpful; others are not. Here our experience was universally positive -- at the restaurants, the front desk, the bell desk, and the valet.

Upon checking in to the hotel, I was immediately captivated by the view of the ocean and the location of this property right on the beach. We had a king oceanview room with a small balcony, and it was just perfect. We had lunch at the Sea Level restaurant, which was pretty good. For dinner, we ordered "Pirate's Pizza" via room service, and it was really good. The following morning I bought breakfast at Starbucks (located in the lobby of the hotel), and ate on our balcony while overlooking the beach and the ocean. For me (a Midwesterner), it doesn't get much better than that.

During our stay, I used the Fitness Center, which was very well equipped.

The hotel is very convenient to the cruise ship terminal (by taxi). This was a perfect start to our vacation.

Basic Marriott room, nice beach and pool area. I prefer to stay a bit more north where you can walk on the beach up to the other hotels and shopping/ restaurants. This is a bit further south and not as accessible. Appetizers and drinks at the poolside restaurant/ bar were expensive but friendly staff and convenient. Overall not bad but expensive and better bargains at some of the smaller more central hotels.

We are one of the few hotels in Fort Lauderdale that is located directly on the ocean with many access points to the beach. For convenience to get up the beach and up and down Las Olas please ask our Concierge about the Trolley schedule (price is less the $2/pp)

This is one of the most booked hotels in Fort Lauderdale, and Marriott must be raking in the big bucks for it. If you're traveling in business and you can get the company to pay, that's fine, but there are definitely other hotels on the beach, near by, that are cheaper and just as nice.

Room Tip: Strange layout for a hotel, stay close to the elevators to avoid a 20 minute walk to your room. They...

We aren't letting the hotel's bad management of the valet parking ruin our wonderful dinner at 3030 but one person at the valet??? Even with the discount for the restaurant the valet was still 5$. The ten minutes that we were waiting, there were 3 people waiting for their cars from the valet - that $15 for 10 minutes (60$ a hour at that pace) - surely they can have 2 people staffing the parking valet booth. Next time we are going to spend the time to find self-parking.

... $6.00 for a bottle of water... ??? really? Dinner at 3030 was small overcooked piece of fish, with undersdone beans & greens. bland house salad. Spa treatments are nice, but no place inside to sit and relax except dull room with plastic black chairs. Parking is horrible. Valet $30 a day.. a must. Better places in town. Location is all they have.

Room Tip: insist on having them waive the room with a view upgrade cost.
