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 came for new yrs eve week. It was right across from beach! We were on 3 rd floor and with no elevator we had to carry all the food and luggage up stairs.

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
