I expect I certain standard any hotel that has the Marriott name on it. So Staying at this property the night before we were to arrive in Ft. Lauderdale to take a cruise was a major mistake. This place needs updating NOW. As soon as you get on the elevator-- you can tell this is not good. The place was clean, breakfast was okay. But I always have a problem with these hotel breakfasts that are all carbs and very little in the way of protein. They did have breakfast sandwiches, so popping those in their micro helped. Location is great-- they just need to update and refresh. Can't say about the staff, after check in didn't see anyone around. Our room had a balcony-- the glass wall door was so old -it was hard to open. The balcony too needed a face lift.
