“Family Spring Break 2014”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

This is our first time her in Ft Lauderdale and my husband and I had 3 teenage daughters with us. We had a 2br/2ba condo that was excellent. Our view was the intercoastal which I highly recommend for view over the ocean and noise. Try to get a high floor. Seeing all the homes and boats along with the lights at night is awesome. Best location on the beach. Everything is at your disposal and this is the hot spot of the area. The only reason I did not give this place a 5 is because the elevators and parking. All the review about the slow elevators and the parking garage is TRUE! Plan on extra time when leaving cause there is no such thing as getting a elevator quickly, you will wait a long time! Parking is small and tight and watch for the crazy drivers. There is not much room on the corners to pass. I would come back here and also to this location again. The condo was great and steps away from the beach is awesome!

Room Tip: Inter-coastal, high floor, away from the AC fans on the roof

We are frequent guests at Marriott properties and if we could, we would rate this property with 10 stars thanks to the amazing attention to detail and friendliness of the staff and management! A special THANK YOU to Manager Jill Munas for her efforts to make this trip special not just for us, but for the many people we met while vacationing here! These extra details are especially amazing given that we are visiting during prime spring break vacation! The rooms are spacious and VERY CLEAN. And the staff takes a sincere interest in making sure your every need is met! You awake to "good morning" from David, a wonderful concierge. The front desk staff, particularly Matt, always went out of their way to make sure that we had enough blankets and pillows. This property is in a great location for not needing a car! The pool and daily activities are lovely. This property is very welcoming for all age groups. We HIGHLY recommend this property!

Room Tip: All rooms are truly lovely!

My sister and I, both in our forties, spent one week in a 2 bedroom oceanfront villa. The condo is beautifully renovated and very clean. The view was spectacular. However, getting in and out of the parking garage took about 5 - 8 minutes. The street/beach noise was very loud, especially at night. Also, the elevators were very slow. If you are looking for beach access and a party scene, this is the place. If you want peace, stay in your beautiful condo with earplugs.

I stayed with my sister and best friend at the Marriott BeachPlace Towers during our spring break in March 2014 for a full week. I booked through a company called Vacation Candy and was so pleasantly surprised by their services. They were completely transparent and responded to all emails within an hour or two, they sent a welcome package and made sure there were no issues with my reservation.
As for the resort - spectacular! I have stayed at many nice resorts with my family and this one exceeded all expectations. Every staff member was incredibly friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make my stay special. The pool area was gorgeous and the hotel is right in the middle of all the action. BeachPlace is actually a 3-level structure in front of the hotel with bars, restaurants, and shopping areas. The room was spacious and very clean. We opted for the linen and trash service (recommended!) and loved our ocean-front room with the balcony. When I return to Ft. Lauderdale I will absolutely stay at BeachPlace Towers again

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor! BeachPlace is great - but if you're trying to go to sleep early the city...

We had 2 huge connecting bedrooms for 2 weeks. Between our large king sized bedrooms,was a FULL kitchen, living room, couches, comfortable chairs, huge LCD TV's, the place was loaded plus large beautiful bathrooms with jacuzzi in the tub, walk-in shower right next to it, with great water pressure. Rooms very clean with maid service. Walk straight out of the hotel, ocean side, and walk right into a colorful bizarre with fresh produce stands, candy store, sunglasses, clothes, shopping abound and, restaurants galore (both pricey and reasonable). Seafood, steaks, ribs, pizza, mexican, name it. There was a lot to chose from on three floor levels too. Walk, escalator or elevators to chose from. Hotel is children friendly too though no pets, someone said, I am not sure. The ocean is one red light across the street, the inter-coastal is on the other side of the tower, we used the ocean side. Everything was so accessible there. The hotel is very lively, day and night. I took yoga & meditation classes, on the beach and/or in the studio, which was 1 short block south from the tower ($12.00 a class). Weather was great everyday. We went to the beach in the morning then the out-door pool at mid day, which is high up on the upper level of the hotel overlooking the ocean and area. The pool served great tropical drinks,beer and wine the pool food was pricey but excellent, finger food too. We walked along the beach most every morning at sunrise then at night before dinner at sunset. Beautiful.

Pros- room has everything you need, space, amenities, view. Great location on the beach.
Cons- thin walls, lots of door slamming. Overheard very intimate activities as I was walking to room. Parking and elevators inconvenient. Pool area is nice until 2pm.

As a frequent stayer of Marriott's, this stay was by far the worst. Upon entering the parking garage you circle around countless times to finally get to the marriott entrance, which is an elevator. There is no bellhop, and no place to pull over, so you're unloading in the middle of the parking garage. That leads to checkin...what do you know the rooms ( and I'm a platinum rewards member) aren't ready and the water view is not an ocean view but a bay view. After speaking w the rude manager my trip had just started off dandy.
Other negatives: 1 small pool for hundreds of guests, no available chairs by pool after 9am, pool bar closes at 5. It begins to get shady by the pool around 3 (tall buildings). The elevator was extremely slow (to the tune of sending a note on our checkout day of "best times to use the elevator". To get to the beach you need to take the elevator down to the bottom of the parking garage then walk through a desolate area of the parking garage into an outside mall then to the beach.
Positives: close to the beach (but considering its a block away it takes about 10 minutes to get there), rooms were kept clean, Starbucks on site (one lady was extremely rude)

Room Tip: They don't guarantee ocean view, it's only water view.
