“very nice ft.lauderdale hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Just returned from a 3 nite stay. Nice property. Away from the crowded strip but close enough to walk. Great beach,great service. Rooms are a little small and pool was very crowded but the hotel manages to do a very good job providing excellent service in all areas. Great concierge staff also.

the hotel is comfortable and the landscape of the pool environment is well done. the hotel itself is aging and needs to be updated soon ( i would call it at present overpriced). Staff is very accommodating (Richard at the the reception was especially helpful at all time)

Room Tip: ocean view is a must, stay on the 7th floor or higher

Loved the location & ON beach location. Not too many college kids, but rather families and couples. Enjoyed the pool, rooms, valet was great. Had beach side room and views amazing. Didn't try restaraunts or spa. Elevator being repaired & took longer to get up/down but not an issue. Staff was nice, area clean. RENT A POOL SIDE BED! That was nice!

Our stay at the Marriott - Harbor Beach was all around excellent. The staff seemed truly interested in doing all they could to make our stay pleasant. Constance (front desk) switched us to a room with a king sized bed and upgraded us to ocean front although the hotel was very busy. The staff in the restaurant and bars were very helpful. Also, I found my I left my charger in our room after checking out and the housekeeping staff search our room and found it. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Overall, our stay was perfect.

We wanted to experience the beautiful turquoise water in Fort Lauderdale. We have a 12 and 16 year old, so it was also important that we not be by the college spring break crowd. I like this place because it truly feels like a resort... a vacation... Not just a "hotel by the beach" ... There are tennis courts here, a full basketball court, beautiful pool area, fitness center is really nice... plus they have a kid's club for 12 and under and it looks like they are having fun. They also gave us a list of activities going on every day around here. When you feel like going off property, easy to do...lots of places to walk too...or a quick cab ride if you don't want to drive and pay for parking. Also, if you rent a car from the airport... it costs to park here every day... $23 I believe... for self parking. Keep that in mind when you are budgeting for your trip. We have been here a week, and it is really nice. I would absolutely come back here. It's a beautiful resort and property. Friendly, helpful staff. Love it! There is a spa here too for those that enjoy that as well...Oh, and a Starbuck's shop in the lobby... Great Place!

Room Tip: We are in a "full view" of the ocean room...and i Love it! They also have rooms that look...

For the price, very expensive for this amount of noise. If you are coming for a relaxing getaway skip this resort. Constant noise from machinery all hours of day and night. Our room was on the water and we couldn't leave our balcony door open. Am sitting by the pool and cannot have a conversation due to noise from machinery.

Thank you for your feedback from your recent stay with us at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. It is with your critiques that we can better improve our product and quality of services. March is a very busy time for the South Florida hotel industry. With that being said, it is imperative that we deliver on all of our services to make sure that you have a nice relaxing stay. I would like to apologize that we did not provide that atmosphere for you and hope that you will give us the opportunity to serve you in the future.

Stayed at the Westin down the strip last fall for a similar long weekend getaway. We had issues with a small kiddie crowded rooftop pool(as in ewww that water cannot be pristine right now with body to body & diaper upon diaper) the overpass crossing to the ocean with malfunctioning elevators and just not feeling like we were at a resort. We even checked out a few other hotels on our walks.

This property has that resort feel we were missing! Lovely sprawling pristine pool. Background Caribbean or mellow music at calming decibels. Plenty of lounge chairs. Immediate access to the beach. You actually can enjoy some of the tots around cause there was plenty of room in & around the pool. There's a kiddie center with activities apparently also.

Pricey. You do have to pay for the pleasure. Perks are non existent. When we stayed at Lowe's in So Beach at similar rates, staff proferred afternoon snacks like fresh fruit, fruit juice sips, cucumbers or even little appetizers like chicken satays. Here you can get fruit infused water and mid afternoon there's SUGAR - cookies and lemonade. Kids appeared to love it but ...man, even as the mom of grown kids I'd be thinking why are you sabotaging efforts at healthier eating for kids especially?! I'd prefer a couple slices of cucumber or fresh fruit....for all ages.

We did not rent a car. To do so would have jacked up the costs significantly with parking/valet fees. We cabbed or walked but be prepared for a hike if you do.

The restaurant on premises, 3030, is superb. You might think it's overpriced hotel fare but you'd be wrong. It is fine dining definitely. Dress up and make it a date! It is also popular so make reservations. A fabulous selection of local fish and other fresh fare. We enjoyed a sublime mushroom soup, a fresh salad with a goat cheese croquette (each leaf of lettuce/baby greens etc looked freshly picked) and our fresh fish entrees. I had a corvina fish entrée. I had never even heard of the fish but it's a lovely white fish. Husband asked for a different preparation of his fish (I think it was grouper) and was delighted with his meal. The wine was reasonable priced. Ambiance was lovely with an ocean view, plenty of room, white tablecloth. Romantic. Our waiter was knowledgeable and perfect.

Prior to leaving our last day we had appetizers and happy hour drinks at the bar since dinner doesn't start till 6. Drinks were downright cheap at like $5. App selection limited but delish. The chicken poutine was something I'd never usually order but omigosh it was devine! A small dish of cooked chicken, fries, melted blue cheese and a fried egg on top. Honestly, I'd never order it elsewhere but took a chance and we ended up sharing 2 of these! Decadent!! We also tried the beef skewers with yogurt sauce and that was tasty.

Frankie the concierge is lovely and hooked us up a couple of times with amazing reservations. She got us a coveted spot at Grille 66.

One horrifying (to me) aspect of our stay was when I realized the maid pitched all bathroom products routinely daily. We had interrupted her one day and I saw the evidence in our trash can. A fairly hefty bar of soap, larger than usual in fact, used twice was in the trash. Partly used gels, shampoos get tossed. And our sheets were totally redone. Not green!! Well, to make up for that our room got skipped day 2, soooo.....

Pool area has lockers/showers for travel/check out day.

Pool area drinks are steep but tasty. We did not eat there but would walk a bit to a place called Quarterdeck about 1/2 mile away for double pour beer/wine and a lb of fresh peel n eat shrimp. That lunch cost less than just 2 drinks at the pool bar and was quite tasty. (ask for extra horseradish)

They should promote the resort experience more. Even simple things like my husband and I asked about a book exchange. He'd finished his and was not into the romanc stuff at the gift shop. First day he got a flat "no such thing". I tried my hand at it and coached a young man into looking for something hidden somewhere et voila! a dusty crate of misc stuff including some books! We left 2 interesting reads behind. :)

Pay extra and get ocean view. We'd leave our door open and fall asleep to crashing waves then wake up to ocean sounds & view. Priceless.

Oh...one more critical point...the bed was amazingly comfortable! Bliss.
