“Excellent location excellent value”
Reviewed December 24, 2012

We stayed for 5 nights (ending christmas eve). Best deal I found was this Courtyard which is literally on the beach. You cross one street and u are on the beach! Practically the same location as the expensive Marriott Harbor Beach Resort and Sheraton and Ritz.
They accommodated our early check-in. We got upgraded to a room with Ocean View (top floor). Awesome location. Will post pics.
Service was great. Restaurant Staff (we had the breakfast package), concierge, housekeeping, doormen all were professional, polite and seemed genuinely happy to serve you.
Bed was a bit spongy - not to my liking. Water in the faucets is yellowish - it is said that there is more iron content in the water hence the color. We drank it for 5 days. So far so good.
I would suggest getting their breakfast package - places around the hotel have similar menu and prices for breakfast - so you are better off getting the package. Great breakfast - fresh fruits, milk/cereal/bacon/eggs and the works PLUS OMELETTE Station (made to order).
There is a 24x7 convenient store (7/11) just two mins walk down the street.
This hotel is right on the path of the Free Sun Trolley that runs across town in Fort Lauderdale (50 cents per trip or $2 for day pass). It is 8-10 min walk away from Water Taxi station which is like a must do attraction for most tourists here.
A scooter rental place, parasailing, jetski rental etc. are all within 10 mins walk. The approach streets in front and behind the hotel are all very lively at night - so it is safe to walk back to the hotel late in the night.

Room Tip: Be polite and friendly to the front desk, courteously ask for upgrades. It helps being their Rewards...

My family of 4 stayed at the courtyard for the night of the fort lauderdale christmas boat parade, we specifically asked for a high floor room but were sadly placed on floor 2. The room we were in was very old, the chair was falling apart, and there was green mold in the shower. This to me was highly dissapointing based on the price we paid for the room. The worst part was the noise we heard from the two rooms next to us screaming at eachother during the night. After complaining to the front desk we were given a 50 credit which was a nice and very appreciated gesture but we still spent over 100 dollars for a room where we didnt get any sleep. The hotel is located adjacent to the very fun bubba gumps which my family enjoyed We also enjoyed the pool deck and location near the beach but didnt like how people could smoke by the pool. Overall this hotel has a great location and decent pool area but based on the condition of the rooms I would not reccomend this hotel and suggest looking elsewhere.

Our first trip to Fort Lauderdale was made very pleasant by being able to check-in early and finding such a comfortable well furnished suite. The floor to ceiling windows provided a partial ocean view, the room was clean, the lighting was good and the vanity area large. The bed was beautifully made up with pristine sheets and very comfy. The location was superb, with easy access to the beach and nearby restaurants. The pool may be a bit small, but who needs it with the beautiful beach just steps away. There is outdoor rooftop seating facing the ocean if one prefers to stay on the property rather than join the seaside crowds.

My husband was staying here on a business trip, he booked a room with an ocean view. However when he checked in the gave him a room on the second floor with a view of a side street. He went and complained the staff said there was nothing they could do at that time, they were fully booked. He said that was fine, but at the end of the week he was being joined by his wife for the weekend and he wanted it fixed. When I arrived they had him in a great corner room with two walls that were full windows. Awesome views! The restaurant staff and bar staff were great and attentive. The food was also good at breakfast in the restaurant. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The front desk staff were very pleasant and had us checked-in in no time. We had a corner room on the 11th floor facing the ocean and it was truly amazing! Floor to ceiling windows on two walls made it feel like we were on a ship on the ocean. There was plenty of space and everything in the room was in perfect condition and very comfortable.
We had omelets in the restaurant for breakfast and they were delicious . The restaurant staff were just a delight. What a great way to start the day!
The hotel is in a perfect location with almost anything you could need or want a walk or short cab ride away.

Spent the night at the Courtyard before taking our cruise. I would recommend this hotel and location to anyone traveling to the area. Our room had windows with ocean views all the way around the room to harbor views. AMAZING!!!

The front desk staff was super friendly and very helpful with area information, including dining options. Our room was amazing - very clean and comfy bed! The beach area is clean and the streets are full of life. Wish we could have spent a little more time there. The pool area had great wicker furniture that overlooks the ocean. A staff member even asked if we'd like the firepit lit. Sat and talked while overlooking the ocean - doesn't get any better than that!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 717A. This room has windows for amazing views all around!

Not much very negative to say about this place. I am a regular with the mariott's. This one is different, but in a positive way. I was in room 416 which is a suite with ocean view. Great room, very clean with a divider between the bed and the living area and a tv in each part. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Good experience.
