Whether you are staying one night, a long weekend or a week, you will have plenty of room and amenities in this hotel. We booked a king bed studio which had a nice living room, full kitchen, including washer and dryer, two large tv's, and a nice balcony that overlooked the ocean. Parking was not a problem and you could... More

We stayed for a long weekend. The property was in a nice location near the ocean, but not overly crowded as some Ft Lauderdale hotels can be. The front desk staff was helpful, but a bit uneven in its level of professionalism. The room was generally nice but a bit worn.

We normally stay at the Marriott Beach Tower Place or Marriott Harbor Beach but we decided to try a new location this year. The Residence Inn Ft. Lauderdale Intracoastal was absolutely great. The staff are impeccable. Can't wait to return.

We were in FLL for a long weekend and stayed at this property due to its location and reputation - neither of which disappointed. The hotel and grounds are a big step above the usual RI, and the staff are fantastic. I've been a Marriott Platinum member for years and have stayed at my fair share of RI's. Unequivocally, this...
