4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Standard Courtyard Marriott. Not exactly the newest or cleanest but it's good enough. The front desk staff has always been friendly and the rooms are always clean. Decent location with easy access to FLL and numerous food and bars.

Only real complaint I have is that the fitness room is well below average. Way to small with not enough equipment.

My wife and I recently stayed at this hotel and had an excellent stay (April 10, 2015). The hotel has a park and cruise option that worked wonderfully. Free shuttle to the cruise port is included. Book your time to the ship when you book the hotel. The cab fare back averages $28-$30 without tip. They also offer airport pickup if you're flying to Fort Lauderdale. We had a minor problem when getting back to the room after dinner. The air conditioning unit made a terrible noise. Called the desk and they helped move us to another room. The following morning they also offered us a complementary breakfast. The hotel does not have a free breakfast for their guests. The hotel is close to a mall that offers an excellent variety of restaurants that are only a block or so away.

Room Tip: They have a outside pool so it you want to walk out from your room pick an 1st floor pool view.

A welcome, average Courtyard experience. Clean standard Courtyard rooms so we know where everything is in the dark. Efficient, friendly staff, free parking, comfortable beds. Classic Marriott. The hotel is near restaurants that stay open late.

A few of us stayed here for one evening and chose the hotel for its location near Sawgrass Mills and because it was a stay on points.

The hotel was easy to find, a few blocks off the interstate. There was ample free parking for our car and we were checked-in very quickly by very friendly staff who offered us a choice of rooms (it's been awhile since that's happened). Honestly, the ladies at the front desk area were some of the nicest I have ever encountered at a hotel - so friendly and pleasant to deal with.

Our room was fairly typical for a Courtyard with two comfortable queen size beds, a desk and TV vanity, and a sink outside the bathroom. Everything in the room was what I expected from the brand and we found our night there quite pleasing.

There was a bistro that opened at night for dinner, although we did not sample the food. I did have a small breakfast item in the morning and it's nice to see prices there were reasonable. We also had intentions to make use of the pool but never did, although the garden in the middle of the hotel was sunny and had many plush chairs to sit in. There was a sign for a jacuzzi but we couldn't find it when we were walking around.

Location wise, it's about a 10-15 minute drive to Sawgrass Mills, but only a block away from a Westfield shopping mall. There was also TONS of restaurants in the vicinity to choose from.

Overall, for a quick evening in the area, this was a great hotel to stay the night in. I can't really think of any problems we had during our stay.

We had a ground floor room.. Although a little tired looking, it was very clean. Loved to door to the pool area off the room! Pool was very nice.. But our favourite part was being able to walk to malls, grocery stores, and tons of restaurants! We definitely plan to stay here again when we are in the area!

I booked 3 rooms here in February and everyone in my party enjoyed this hotel.
The beds are heavenly and the resort staff are excellent as well. Free airport pick up and drop off, plus they will also take you to Port Everglades for free. (however to the best of my knowledge they do not pick you up from the port). I would definitely stay here again. They have a cafe in the lobby but no complementary breakfast. Also their is plenty of restaurants with-in walking distance.
