“Pricey hotel for what it offers but location is good.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

We stayed 3 nights at this property and went for the beach view room. Since beach is on the other side of the road and the road gets busy the room was noisy but the view is good. The room is pretty stark for the price you pay but the beds are comfortable. The location of the hotel is excellent that you can walk to the beach and and there is a fast food place right next to hotel so having breakfast and lunch doesn't have to be pricey. The parking is valet or self for pretty much the same price. Overall above average because of location.

Afher we stayed in Double Tree Miami last year, we were full of confidence to stay at another Double Tree, in april 2013 in Fort Lauderdale. We shouldn't have done that. The room was ok, but don't get excited over the balcony, you can't sit on it. Beds are good. Bathroom is poor. Doors were almost hanging out and the bathroom was in need of serious maintenance. If you go for a breakfast, eat outside or bring extra clothes because inside it's freezing. Breakfast itself was very good, service varied by person (we had a very kind waiter outside, but the table seater was so slow). Staff at the reception is very kind. So there were good points but not comparable by the visit in Miami, so we won't return here.

Stayed here for the Tortuga Music Fest in the marina building with a great view of marina and beach with comfy beds and mini fridge which is all I needed since I wasn't in the room other then to sleep & shower. Very friendly front desk staff with complimentary chocolate chip cookies at check in, valets very friendly and helpful as well. The corner cafe was awesome with fresh brewed coffee and made to order breakfast. I had the omelette w/ potatoes and it was delicious. Was able to grab a late night burger at their restaurant after the concert which I was happy to see they were still serving..... Would definitly stay here again!!

Room Tip: If staying in the marina building, ask for a balcony room.

Stayed evening prior to cruise out of Port Everglades - 2 adults and 2 teen aged daughters.

While the property is dated, its access to the beach (via walkway) and proximity to the port was worth it. We enjoyed getting up Easter Sunday to find services being held by local churches right there on the beach. Just a quick walk over the bridge and we were in the middle of it.

Food choices are limited, but the All About Food across the courtyard has a variety of options to choose from. Not cheap, but better than Hotel restaurant.

We had a friend pick us up to get to the port, but taxis were available in case we needed another option.

Room Tip: High room with ocean view as the view is stunning in the AM.

Great view, good location, but very dated hotel. Loud rap music full of profanities can be heard from the beach all the way to your ocean view room until late. Good amenities - pool, gym, convenience store, etc. Very little sound privacy inside the hotel. Charmless lobby. On the whole, disappointing.

Room Tip: Bring ear plugs if you are going to stay in an ocean view room.

We stayed at the marina on a boat with some friends. I found the workers to be very helpful and the property very fun. The dock master was really awesome and put up with all of the tortuga boaters with no sweat. Really had fun at the pool. Very good food which surprised me for a pool bar. Their is a small cafe on the corner of the entrance that is really off the charts! You name it they have it. If you stay in your boat, go to B dock there is great people and boat watching. The crew showers are a little on the grungier side, but that could be from the on slought of party goers. Lots of history here, great place!

The hotel is clearly old. The room was OK. It was average, spacious (except for the very, very, small bathroom), clean and the beds were fine. The hotel and room needs a little better upkeep. The elevators were horrendous, slow, loud noises and very scary. Once it would not move with us on it. Not very happy about that. The lobby is too small for the amount of people it serves especially those coming in post cruise, or leaving pre cruise.

We were going to stay and give this place a go even though we were not that impressed with the room until our second day there and the beach was being closed off. Yes closed off, no access. There was apparently a big two day music fesitval that was going to happen the following weekend. They were driving vehicles around us and others on the beach, using air hammers to put up fencing. The city closed off the beach for many blocks and all kinds of trucks and equipment was there. We did not arrive for a relaxing week long beach vacation to have this kind of noice and non-access to the beach.

Approached the front desk and they said they did not know anything about it. Funny when they had a banner for the event on their walkway to the beach. We ended up checking out and moving to the Ritz Carlton. While it was more expensive, definitely worth the extra money.

Overall, the hotel needs some improvements, especially the elevators, and should pre-warm guests checking in if there are any issues with the facility or beach access. The cost was too high for the quality of the resort (if you can call it that). I will say I did like All About Food. Had breakfast there and my husband and I could have split one order. Very good.

Room Tip: If you do stay here, go for a partial ocean front or an ocean front room so you are guaranteed to be...
