“Very nice Courtyard”
Reviewed December 31, 2005

I have stayed at many Courtyard hotels and this is the nicest. Only 2 years old. They have a great buffet breakfast @$10.00.
the pool is very nice and kept very warm. The hotel Van services the airport and the cruise port. They will only drop you off at the cruise port. They will not pick up. It is a $20.00 taxi fare from the cruise port to the hotel.
I purchased this hotel on Priceline for $70.00 during the Christmas break 2005

Stayed at this hotel in December since we were leaving for a cruise the next day. The hotel was filled to capacity! Rooms are a bit small but furniture looks great!

Definitely have the breakfast buffet - it was quite good for a continental buffet. One computer is available at no charge for internet access off the lobby area.

Hotel is within walking distance of the Fishing Hall of Fame, various restaurants and Bass Shopping Complex. The hotel is out of the way from downtown attractions but there is certainly enough to eat close by so you really don't have to leave the area.

Sign up early for the free shuttle to the cruise ships. This can be a busy area but the staff handled everything very professionally. I would recommend going on the 10/10:30 shuttle to the cruise ships - it takes awhile to have all the luggage packed up and the cruise ships seemed able to handle incoming passengers by about 11:00 a.m.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again before boarding a cruise ship.

Room, etc was fine, free internet worked immediatley but.... this place is at the end of an out-of-way drive leading to the International Fishing of Fame - a lot of stuffed fish - which is next to the Bass Pro Shop with a sushi bar.

Watch out out for the noise at night --Amtrack and other train lines are direclty next to the hotel and blow long whistles at 3 a.m.

All of this excitement at $150 night? Not for me, again.

We stayed one night at this hotel after an exhausting, horrible trip to take care of an elderly relative. When we checked in, we were not in the mood for any hassles...and we didn't get any! Check in was quick and easy, and the room was surprisingly beautiful. We slept like rocks...it was very quiet. The next morning, we had a nice breakfast and easily caught our flight home. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. Staying here was definitly the only positive part of our trip!

We stayed one night after our cruise before flying back the next day. We arrived at noon and were able to check into our room immediately. Beautiful decor, nice accent lighting in the room. Nice desk arrangement with a pull out table under a larger one, chairs, coffee table. Bar area was granite, included a small fridge. Bathroom was huge - especially coming off a cruise! Beds were soft, digital thermostat on the wall to control temperature. The lobby area was very nice and spacious. There was a laptop computer with internet access and printer available for no charge. Breakfast was good and a good value. Pool was wonderful - large hot tub and pool nicely landscaped. Hotel was located next to Fishing Hall of Fame and museum (Subway fast food shop inside) which was next to Outdoor World/Bass Pro Shop which had a good restaurant attached. We did use the free shuttle to the airport which ran every half hour, very convienent **We stayed in the room right over the entrance in front and I was woken up by the trains twice, they were loud as the tracks were very close but I can hear some trains at night at home and was able to fall asleep again quickly. Weighted against everything else, to me, it was barely worth mentioning. Would definitely stay again.

The Marriott is to be recommended. We had no reservations at this hotel, but at the Stirling Suites (we had thought the same hotel). Upon Arrival late at night in Ft.Lauderdale and having Stirling Suites re-sell our room, we had called almost every hotel in Dania/Ft.Lauderdale, the Courtyard by Marriott took us in through their goodness and because they felt compassion that their former hotel rejected our PAID IN FULL reservation. Our hearts went out to the staff at Marriott.

The last minute room was the nicest room we have stayed at in Florida. Clean, refreshing, great front counter people - full of apologies for the attitude of Stirling Suites - we were very very pleased. The rooms are large, well laid out, bathrooms were spacious and so clean! The breakfast buffet was a winner - everything so good and everyone so helpful. Great food and coffee!

We are re-visiting Florida in February 2006 AND we have already made a reservation to stay at Courtyard by Marriott! The people are the friendliest we have met in Florida - well worth the visit!

I travel on business and have stayed over 120 nights this year at Marriott properties (toss ina couple of Hamptons, Hiltons, etc.. )and I'm well over 150 nights a year on the road.
This is one of the best Courtyards in the country- bar none. Friendly staff, clean, great location- everything I look for in a hotel. Highly reccomended.
I am very glad Marriott dropped the Springhell Suites Ft. Lauderdale Airport/ Cruise Port (now called Sterling Suites) That was the polar opposite of this fine hotel. I;ll be staying there again...soon.
