“Good location, average hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2012

The hotel was a short way from beach (walkable) and as on two major roads it was easy to get around. They still have the Courtyard Cafe, but that is being replaced in April with the new Courtyard Bistro ("Starbucks-like") which is a shame. However, there is a Denny's across the street for full service breakfast. Maid service was slow and inconsistent; 4 of 9 days I had to ask for things which should have been handled by the maids. One day the maids forgot to clean my room all together. The only major complaint would be that this hotel can be noisy. I could hear people in the room above me walking around and had to complain twice about the noise from the room next to mine. All things being equal, I would probably stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms facing East (North Federal Hwy) can be noisy, rooms are the back (West) are quieter. Best room...

The hotel was an average hotel, good friendly staff who sorted out requests at the earliest. Its a short drive from the beach!! The rooms were clean and well maintained. We will not be staying again there … but a decent place..

Room Tip: The pool front rooms are good.. but will be noisy !!

We spent a few days in Fort Lauderdale and were lucky enough to find this gem. Great front desk staff, incredibly comfortable beds, quiet rooms - A shuttle available to take us shopping as well as to the beach area for dinner, etcetera. Shuttle drivers very helpful and friendly. The breakfast was incredible - home made waffles, made to order omelets, etcetera. The fellow in the breakfast room is a delight - lots of great stories of his trips around the world working for a cruise line. We would certainly stay here again and highly recommend it.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, my room was clean and quiet, and the location was perfect for a business traveler. Close to restaurants, shopping, and the interstate. It's also a short drive to the beach for a little relaxation! Highly recommend, great value.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the parking lot are quieter, ask for a room away from the elevator.

My wife and I had a Great visit last week but I'm somewhat confused regarding whether we should be receiving your wonderfu buffet breakfast as part of our stay. During all of our previous stays we received the Buffet Breakfast "free of charge" as part of the room rate. But this time we did not. I reserved the room "on-line" and I'm a Marriott Rewards Card Member so I guess that I'm just a little confused.

Were we simply lucky on the previous occasions? Or has your Policy changed?

Otherwise, the room and our stay was very nice.

Thank-you,

Stephen Holmes

From the front desk to the restaurant, I received genuine happy greetings, smiling faces and helpful service. The layout of the hotel is a little different: room was at an adjoining building connected by a covered walk way. My room overlooked a decent sized pool. Ample parking. Breakfast had a nice array of cold and hot sidhes and an omlette station. This was the least expensive of the Courtyards in the Ft. Lauderdale beach area. I took a cab from the hotel to the beach area at Sunrise Blvd to meet some friends; cost was $20. Workout room had 2 up-to-date treadmills, an elliptical and bike along with dumbbells. Mattress was firm and comfortable.

I felt that the Marriott was really just average, especially for the money. I spent the night there prior to surgery at a nearby hospital and I was given a quiet room which was most important but I didn't feel there were tremendous amenities. The in-room safe did not work. They did have coffee in rooms and downstairs in lobby and some cookies at desk.

Room Tip: Front of building faces US #1 which could be noisy. There is no "view" in the back of the...
