I have freinds in the area....and its nice they can come visit without the cold experiences of elevators, hallways, etc. when they knock on my door....they see... More

After staying at the Hilton, Marriott, and Westin, it was time to return to traditional Floridian accommodations. We rented the penthouse, a 2 bedroom and 2 bath unit on the third floor from 12/30 - 1/7/14. It was perfect, great view, full kitchen, washer/dryer and deck. Why pay the prices of the big hotels on the beach when one can... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days. We were given room 101 which was right on the beach. The staff was amazing and we were right on the beach. Wish that the pool was a little bigger but we didn't stay in the pool for long at all- especially with the ocean in front. We were checked in way... More

Great location, clean rooms and great staff. Be careful with your parking card, remember to put it in the car window or you will get towed. Staff are fabulous, rooms clean and spacious. Great view if beach and pet friendly. Great place to stay

Thanks for the fantastic review! Yes, parking is limited, but it's free. Parking permits are issued to only one car per unit, however there are several public parking areas very close. Thanks for staying with us and hope to see you again! More

We love this resort. We exchange through RCI every year and come to Fort Lauderdale, and the Merriweather is always our #1 choice. The location is more than ideal and the amenities (pool, courtyard, full kitchen, free parking) are great. An added bonus - we got to bring our small dog along! The beds are comfortable and the place overall... More
