“No complaints, would stay again.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Not a whole lot to say, other than nice, clean rooms, and the staff treated us very well. We only had breakfast at the hotel. It wasn't bad. Pool looked clean, although we didn't use it. We used the jacuzzi once and again, it was very clean. If you're going on a budget and decide to not get a car (as we did), the bus & train stations are right there. But if i were going back for anything other than a scheduled activity that offered shuttle service (we were there for the Ft. Lauderdale boat show), I'd certainly get a car. Nothing within walking distance, other than the Isla Morada restaurant at the Bass Pro Shop next door, and the IGFA museum which was pretty neat.

Tiffany was awesome, and we wish her success in her career in the hospitality industry.

Room Tip: NOT 311. If you like to keep the curtains open and wake up at the crack of dawn as I do, you're...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed one night before our cruise which left from Port Everglades. Chose this property because we had a free Marriott stay certificate, but would have likely booked it anyway due to the free wifi and free airport and cruise port shuttles. Property was very clean and well maintained with comfortable new beds and flat screen TV. No free breakfast and no buffet (even for $$$), but the food at the cafe was good. Also a very good seafood restaurant in the Bass Pro store a short walk away that had good Happy Hour drink and food prices.

Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Our room overlooked the pool and was very quiet.

I made reservations with this particular hotel before my family set out on our cruise. The cleanliness and professionalism of the staff from Elise at the Bistro, to Joaquin our driver who drove us to the cruise port and of course Karen the front desk administrator all made us feel so welcome and at home. i really loved staying their. They all seemed to sincerely care for our comfort and punctuality in getting to our chosen destinations, calling the room to make sure we didn't miss our rides to the cruise port or to the airport when returning home. That's right I stayed upon my return home after my cruise was completed. I had made reservations to stay else where because of price but didn't feel that same warmth on the other line when speaking to the Representative of this hotel so i spoke with Karen and she got me in on the same day and without fail made me feel right at home. This is one of the best hotel experiences I've encountered and would highly recommend to anyone staying in the ft Lauder dale area. Just ask for Karen.

This hotel fit the bill perfectly for the night before our recent cruise. It was close to the airport and the cruise port. We didn't want to wait for the shuttle from the airport so we took a taxi from the airport to the hotel. Tip: Be sure to specify to the driver that you want the Courtyard Marriott in Dania Beach, as we only asked for the Courtyard Marriott near the cruise port and we ended up in downtown Fort Lauderdale. We utilized the free shuttle to the cruise in the morning and it was on time and comfortable. Three departure times were offered. The room itself was roomy, clean and modern. Despite the fact that the hotel is near a major highway and the train station, it was surprisingly quiet. Our room was facing the highway. There is a food court type restaurant, however if you are looking for more of a sit down place there isn't a lot within walking distance other than the restaurant attached to the Bass Pro Shop. That being said, we had a very nice dinner there. The hotel restaurant was great in the morning for coffee and breakfast before heading to the ship. If we ever cruise out of this port again, we would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at this property because it was close to the airport and it literally is less than 2 miles away. It's a typical Courtyard and I was greeted warmly. It's conveniently located near the rail station. Would stay there again.

Clean, modern, typical Courtyard - no issues. A bit hard to get to - and the airport shuttle runs every 30 mins...not as needed. If you want to eat dinner (and not there), you do have to drive to get there.

We stayed at this Courtyard property the night prior to our cruise. The hotel picked us up at the airport for free and dropped us off the next morning at the cruise pier for free. The transportation was well organized and easy to use. The property is your basic no-frills Courtyard. The hotel had our feather-free room ready for us when we arrive as requested. Minus one star though because the room could have been cleaner. There were rings from glasses and dried liquid spots on the night stand and desk that I felt should have been obvious to anyone cleaning the room. Other than that, the room met my expectations and was a good value for the money we paid.

Thank you for taking the time to share your opinion of our hotel regarding your recent stay. I’m happy that the hotel was convenient for you and the shuttle service met your needs before your cruise. We do our best to anticipate the guest needs and honor requests prior to arrival and I’m pleased to hear that your room requests were met. Please accept my apologies for the room cleanliness issues. We take a lot of pride in the cleanliness of our hotel and we are disappointed that you did not have a problem free stay. We always use the feedback as a teachable moment with our staff and we have discussed the attention to detail. Thank you again and I hope you will continue to choose Marriott when you travel.
