“Great stay near FLL airport.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

The hotel is convenient for stays near FLL airport. Not much around hotel other than Outdoor World. Hotel and lobby are very nice. Rooms are clean. Bistro is nice but opens late for a business traveler who needs to catch an early flight (6:30 am). They do have a small "store" that sells drinks etc.. No single serving coffee maker in room and no paper cups for coffee in room (Glass coffee pot and mugs) which is gross in my opinion. Overall, a nice option for an airport hotel.

Thank you! I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay and will definitely consider adding the paper cups as an option as well as some travelers may want that cup to go!

Hope to see you again!

We chose it because we flew in (free airport shuttle) and cruised out (free port shuttle). PROS: Shuttles, super comfy beds, friendly & helpful staff, modern lobby with plenty of seating, TVS, computers, etc. CONS: Wish bfast was included, no food options to walk to either
Good choice for us.

So happy that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your recommendations as well. Hopefully they'll build a few more walkable venues to us soon! We are convenient for flying, driving, sailing, etc. but not really for walking besides Outdoor World, Bass Pro Shop, Divers Direct, Islamorada Fish Company and the IGFA Hall of Fame.

Thank you again!

Close to the airport and right next to train station. Modern lobby with the bistro and comfortable beds. A lot of 1 night stays given the proximity to cruise terminal and airport. I did not notice excessive noise from trains or planes, so it a good choice if you need a place near the airport.

This is a typical Courtyard by Marriott that apparently has an overbooking problem on cruise turnover days. We booked five rooms for a family vacation. Four were occupied by mid afternoon but one party arriving at 11PM never got a room here. They were picked up at the airport, along with other overbooked people, and taken to a hotel further away. This happened even though we checked before arrival that late arriver had a guaranteed room. Other than this snafu, it was a good place for an over night stay. The hotel provided free transportation to the cruise port. There is an on site restaurant and there are other eating opportunities nearby. The room was clean and desk staff was helpful. The place was very full with many people there for departing cruises, but the transport to the ships was smoothly handled. My advice, be sure to check your 'guaranteed' room might actually be available if you are coming in late.

Oh dear, yes that was a bad night. We unfortunately had to send a few folks to one of our sister hotels and hopefully they enjoyed their stay there and appreciated that we took care of their bill! We hate when this happens but do our best to ensure we make up for it.

Glad to hear all else went well and I hope you all had a great time on your cruise!

Hotel is located less than 10 minutes from the Ft. Lauderdale Airport rental car pick-up location; only one block from I-95 exit #23. The hotel is located between I-95 and a set of railroad tracks that are used by the Tri-Rail. The Ft. Lauderdale Airport Tri-Rail station is only about 150 yards from the front doors to the hotel. I was in town for a conference at the Broward County Convention center and it took only about 15 minutes to get there from the hotel.

Staff was cordial and friendly at check-in. Lobby is recently refurbished and welcoming and contains a bistro for snacks, sandwiches, and dinner. Area was also a large and a comfortable place to hang-out and work on the computer and read.

Room was clean and well-maintained and met expectations for a Courtyard Room. Contained a King-bed (mattress was very comfortable and made for a good night’s sleep), couch, business desk and chair and a flat-screen TV. Bathroom was basic (shower/tub combo) with sink just outside the shower/toilet area. My room was located on the east-side of the hotel (facing I-95) and the noise from the interstate was not an issue.

For non-hotel dining options within walking distance is the Islamorada Fish Company located in the Bass Pro Shop (about 200 yards from the hotel). If you have a car, there is a multitude of dining options located nearby from quick-service chains to nice higher end independent restaurants.

Hotel does have an outdoor pool and fitness room; Wireless is free and shuttle is available for the airport.

For a one or two night stay, this was a good option.

I stayed at the Courtyard in August of 2012 as I had a flight the next day out of FLL, I was so happy to find such a great, clean, hotel. The room was huge and very comfortable beds. Flat screen tv and fridge made even more comfy.
The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The lobby had gorgeous fish aquariums and a small counter where you get sandwiches, salads, breakfast items, and even alcohol! It was mostly filled with business people so I made my way out to the pool.
The pool area is awesome! It has a small Jacuzzi and the pool was the perfect size. Very nice loungers and tables with umbrellas. Even though it backs up to I-95, you really couldn't hear any noise.
The Marriott is located within walking distance to Bass Pro shops and Islamorada fish company. I went there for lunch and sat outside near the water. I have to admit, although the food is delicious, it was a little scary as huge lizards surrounded me and were looking for food! There's plenty of turtles, ducks, and fish in the pond as well and thats where they stayed.
If you're ever in the Fort Lauderdale area and heading for a cruise, or just a business stop over, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this wonderful hotel!

Room Tip: Don't let the location next to I-95 scare you away. If you can hear it from your room, just clo...
