5 Star hotel right on the beach.Posted Sep 9, 2014
Pros: Everything but the cost of food.
Cons: Lower the cost of food.
Location: Museums and boat cruise through the canals.
Hotel is top of line, beachfront is private to guests. Very nice pool, safe for children. Deep at one end for adults. Many amenities to take care of your every need. Expect to pay more for these amenities. Those who frequent this hotel know it is going to cost more. Eating at hotel is very expensive. One place on the resort grounds that is average in food and drink cost is Sea Level restaurant.

Best part was the beach!Posted Sep 2, 2014
Pros: Beach front
Cons: Include all the extra costs in with the room fee. They also have a club membership for locals so the beach, pool and hotel can get very busy
First time to Fort Lauderdale, and might be the last. The Marriott is a nice hotel but not for the price you pay and then add on top of that the fees for everything else right down to paying for an umbrella on the beach. The restaurants were good but again very overpriced. Best part of the vacation was the beach and swimming in the ocean.

Nice hotel that is close to the beach.Posted Aug 20, 2014
Pros: The location, private beach and the overall resort like atmosphere. They offer water sports. The spa there is excellent
Cons: If there were rainy day activities on the property. Also, if there was a place for live music or dancing for adults in the hotel.
Location: Close to water taxi , water tours, Las Olas Blvd and Downtown. Walking distance to Fort Lauderdale Beach, restaurants and clubs.
We were there on vacation for 4 days. It is one of our favorite places to go for a relaxing get away. The staff was very helpful, professional and polite.

Enjoyable and relaxing stayPosted Aug 18, 2014
My wife and I stayed for 4 nights on a quick get-away vacation. The resort was well staffed, and the rooms are very comfortable, clean, and well appointed. The pool is clean and large. There is only one pool, so it can get a bit busy with children, but they tend to stay in the shallow end, so if you stay toward the deeper end, you'll have some space to relax and cool off. The restaurants on the resort were good, but very expensive, which is the biggest draw-back of the hotel. There are no good restaurants within walking distance, but we would take a cab each morning to the nearby strip that had a large number of restaurants and cafes. Even with the cab fare, it was still cheaper to eat off the resort than on it. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay and would come back. I recommend it, but understand it can get pricey with the additional fees and services.
