“The beautiful beaches and marinas make up for the draw backs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

The hotel and surrounding areas of laid back Fort Lauderdale are worth visiting even if you are looking for just a place to rest your head, we stayed for two days and were just breaking up our journey around parts of Florida, the staff service was not of a high standard but everything else was if a good standard and as it was just for a few days it was acceptable I believe we were spoilt in Miami!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We stayed at The HMB end of May/beginning of June 2013. The hotel ist gorgious! Absolutely nice atmosphere, clean und well maintained. The staff at the front desk were very friendly upon arrival. The concierge always helped us with all sorts of questions. The doormen and bell captain were extremly friendly. Everytime we left oder arrived we received a warm "welcome back, nice that you are here!" or "Have a nice day, enjoy!" They came running to open the door for us. Really outstanding service which made us feel at home.
The food at the Beachbar was excellent and they always refilled the glass with softdrinks although we only paid for one. ;) We had a snack and drinks at the pool which arrived fast and it tasted delicious.
The ladies in the souvenir shop were also very nice and helpful.
We had an oceanview room on the 9th floor with a balcony. We could see the ocean through the bars.
There is a laundry for the hotel guests which ist very cheap. We didn't use washing mchines. instead we had our clothes washed by the laundry service. Everything came back the same day, clean und nicely ironed. It was a bit pricey but worth it.
The housekeeping was prompt and perfect, too.
We had breakfast buffet sitting outdoors. Don't miss it! It's fabulous.
There ist absolutely nothing negative to say about this lovely resort! I would always love to return!

Room Tip: oceanview on higher floors, avoid room beside the ice-machine

My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend. Great property and service in most departments. Mediocre service in specific departments which is why we did not give it a perfect five stars. The bar staff was amazing (I think Jen was our bartender during the weekend). Breakfast was awesome! We walked to the main drag for lunch and dinner. A nice stroll along the beach (about one mile) to get you to the heart of the action. We did have a few issues which were kind of shocking for how nice the place was. We had an issue with our room which was resolved the next day (we were "upgraded" next to elevator and ice machine which constantly runs and buzzes. In the morning the maids slamming their carts and knocking on doors kind of killed the relaxing part). After moving to another room it was nice. For the beach, my wife and I found scattered beer bottles (glass) on the beach (Marriott's beach). Also, trash and used towels were common. The beach staff (young men) seemed to be more interested in their phones then helping people set up chairs and clean the beach. We watched these poor old people lift and carry beach chairs around. If Marriott fixed the beach issues we would give it a perfect 5 stars. We recommend Coconuts for brunch and the scratch corned beef hash or yolk sandwich for breakfast.

Stayed here on 5/31/13 prior to leaving on cruise. Hotel Is very we'll kept and clean. Service was excellent and food was good. We have been to numerous Marriott properties but this is probably the best. We had an ocean view room which was very nice and yes the view was excellent. As with most Marriott properties, it is not cheap but worth it.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view room. Not cheap but worth it.

This Marriott is a wonderful beach resort - the lobby is beautiful, the grounds are relaxing, and the staff are friendly. When I'm at the beach, I like to relax, so one amenity really stands out - beach service, because you won't find it at most Ft. Lauderdale hotels. Tara and her wonderful drink cart were a welcomed sight, every day. Thank you, Tara!

I stayed here with my wife and 10 year old daughter for the memorial day weekend. Although it was a little pricey it was well worth it and we had a wonderful time. The pool area was great with terrific service, food and drinks. Very kid friendly with many activites for them during the day and movies by the pool in the evening. Cons, the rooms were a little tight and the balconies were very small just enough room for two people. Some of these have concrete railings which limit the view while sitting. Ask for the balconies that have the partial metal railings. Also if you are choosing an ocean view room make sure you ask for a higher floor. We initally were given the 2nd floor and were disapointed but they were able to move us up to the 9th floor. Would come back for sure.

We dropped by the Marriott today to check it out for our next trip. We went to the beach bar and were served by Alison S. She was totally delightful and by this action, convinced us to stay at the Marriott next time.
