Our son recently graduated from a graduate school at UMiami. We traveled with relatives to attend. They arrived before as they flew into Miami. The hotel shuttle picked them up and seamlessly brought them to the hotel complex. They arrived before check in and were given one room to store all bags and then they enjoyed a lovely lunch at one of the other 3 Marriott properties. We landed at Fort Lauderdale and drove to the Marriott. All of the rooms were lovely and clean. The hotel complex has 3 Marriott hotels and all were in a gated complex. The complex does charge $17 per night for parking but that does guarantee a spot. Our breakfast was lovely and included the normal Residence Inn fare except for the orange and grapefruit juice was fresh (FL style). The staff at this hotel was surprising much nicer than at other Residence Inns that we have stayed. We will reserve this location again for our next graduation. And by we are Silver Elite members.
