Possibly the best RI I've visited out of hundreds thanks to fantastic views of the waterway, excellent service at the front desk (thanks Kristel), and a delicious breakfast. Property is clean and quiet, but within walking distance to the beach and great restaurants.

Stayed here with family of five, pre-cruise. One of the nicer RI's I have seen for style and vibe. Beautiful rooms, high ceiling and great views. It is a cab ride from main Ft.

When we stay in Fort Lauderdale, we usually stay at the Westin, W or Pelican. Reluctantly, we decided to stay at the Residence Inn. We were not disappointed in any way. I can't say one bad thing. From the desk clerk, the room, the breakfast, every item was fantastic. . The only down side was the weather. Wish the hotel...

Let me start by saying we were unfortunately involved with the tragic shooting at Ft Lauderdale airport on Jan 6. 2016. A devastingly horrible day that lasted 12 hours where we couldn't get out of airport after evacuating to tarmac for most of day and then transported by bus to Port Everglades and then fighting for taxis to get out...

This is a modern, high-rise hotel located right on the Intracoastal Waterway...if you have a friend that lives in Fort Lauderdale and they have a boat, they can come right up to the hotel and you can take a spin up and down the waterway...you can get a room looking west over the city and sunsets, or you can have...

We were in town for one night before going north and chose an ocean view room. Was so impressed with the size of the room, the cleanliness, the staff, the gorgeous view and all the facilities. You could not have wanted for anything more in the room as far as what you needed. It felt nicer than some places we...

I stayed at the Residence Inn for 2 nights while in FL for a friend's wedding. I had a rough morning and my travel experience wasn't the best I've ever experienced.

My wife and I stayed at the Marriott Residence Inn Ft. Lauderdale Intracoastal for the night of the 2016 Winterfest Boat Parade.
