My friend and I decided to head to Ft. Lauderdale on a girls trip away from our families. After much research to find an affordable yet nice place, we found the Merriweather. We were a little skeptical as it is surrounded by high-end hotels but it turned out to be awesome! We are in our early 30s so we wanted... More

Thanks for your thorough review of our hotel and all of your very kind words. It truly makes our day! Regarding check out time...you're absolutely right.. We do need time to thoroughly clean the rooms before the next guest arrives. Because we are not just a hotel but foremost a timeshare resort complete with kitchens, it is essential that we... More

The Merriweather Resort is the perfect beach location in Fort Lauderdale. It is one of a very small number of low-rise accommodations on a strip of mostly very high-rise accommodations. It is nestled between the Ritz Carlton and the Westin. The view from our unit was what you see as The Merriweather's tripadvisor picture. In one minute we could be... More

My husband and I stayed at the Merriweather only for one night on our way to Key West. We had no reservations in Fort Lauderdale and happily, the Merriweather had one room left! It was a full efficiency unit and was very large for just the two of us but I can imagine how practical this room would be for... More

Was a little worried when we traded in to this resort from our Vistana location in Orlando but left town with one of our best vacations ever.Mary Jo and staff are just downright friendly and helpful which only makes the experience sooo much better. You can not find a better location and sitting poolside with a short walk to the... More

The Merriweather had everything my husband and I were looking for in our 3 night stay before our cruise. #1 Great views of the ocean #2 A pool and #3 a place with a kitchen that was bigger than your average hotel room. Also got a 24/7 CVS within a couple of blocks that was not your average CVS and... More

This place is in the perfect spot on the beach. It is close to everything and the staff is very courteous and helpful. The only problem with rooms is how dated they are. Walking in my first impression was " the golden girls would have loved this place." The furniture badly needs updating and spot cleaning especially the couch. On... More

When I made my reservation I could only stay 3 of the 5 nights I requested since a large group was previously booked. The last 2 nights I was able to get a good rate at the Westin. I am the type of person who likes to sit outside enjoy the fresh air and sun and relax under the stars... More

We loved the Merriweather because of the location near the sea. Las Olas is very close and we are close to everything. The kids liked the pool and our apartment was very clean but we found cockroaches. We first found a very big about 2 inches and then we found five other ... the next morning, we heard one walking...

Though we stayed at the Merriweather last year just before the spring break rush, occasionally we still recall what a wonderful experience we had. We first read the reviews and then spoke to Mary Jo for specific information and advice. She was great and very helpful. When we finally arrived, we were pleasantly surprised at the location and the cleanliness... More

My family have stayed at the Merriweather on vacation for the last couple of years. We love the location, it's right across the street from the beach and walking distance to restaurants. It's an old place but that didn't bother us because the rooms are pretty clean and maintained. My only complain is the rudeness of the resort manager Mary... More
