“Fantastic views but thin bedroom walls .”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Our bedroom had an amazing view over the intra coastal waterway which we loved. Unfortunately the walls were in no way soundproofed and we could hear every sound made by the rooms next to us. The staff were helpful and the valet car people very efficient and pleasant. The pool was disappointing as seemed to be in the shade every time we passed it. There was a large area with loungers which meant we could always find a seat.

Thank you for your comments. I'm glad that you enjoyed our staff and the guest room views. I am sorry that you were disturbed by noise from another guest room which is difficult to control. I hope that you will give us another opportunity to welcome you back!

This hotel is more or less in the best position in Fort Lauderdale. Right opposite the beach and far enough away from the hectic bars further along the beach to be relatively quiet. It is however showing its age and about time for a refurbishment especially the pool area. Rooms are OK with good views from higher rooms from any room. Concierge was very helpful. OK for pre and post cruise but don't think I would want to stay there for longer. At $300 per night it is overpriced for what is a 3 star hotel

Room Tip: Any higher room has a view

Location couldn't be better. Valet parking is super fast but includes a fee maybe $30 or so. Room was fine, great ocean view. Right across the street from the beach. Pool seemed nice and has a poolside bar and area to hang. Would definitely stay again. If you can get a rate in the $150 range it's a steal.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view up high

We chose this hotel as a one night layover between a cruise and flying home. The location was amazing, as it has a walkway past the pool, the pool bar, and straight onto the street that fronts the beach. Also has excellent views from the pool to the ocean.
My main objection was that we were there during spring break and had to wak up early to catch a flight. The college students coming home late at night were loud and the sound proofing of the room was practically non-existent.
The common areas were nice, but were a little old looking, while the room itself was quite nice and spacious.

Thank you for choosing our hotel for your layover between your cruise and flight home. Our beach front location is very popular to families, cruisers, business people and this time of year, college students on spring break. I do apologize that spring breakers arriving back to the hotel late at night did disturb you. We will be a new hotel when our renovation is complete with modern updates to the hotel common areas.

I booked a last minute trip to Ft. Lauderdale with my 2 teenage daughters for 2 nights. We arrived at 9:00am and was thrilled that our room was ready. Our room was great, spacious and very clean. The staff was great on all levels, could not have been more accommodating. Food was very good- breakfast/lunch. Location is spot on, just cross the street from the beach. Very happy with this property.

Stayed one night post cruise. We arrived early and there was no problem having them store our bags while we took advantage of the beach. Staff were peasant & efficient and our room was ready when we came back later in the afternoon. (They did offer to call us when the room was ready but we didn't have our cell phone) We also needed late check out because of our flight. They graciously allowed us to stay until 1pm and again store our luggage with the valet. Room was spacious & clean and the view was amazing. The building itself is a bit antiquated, the elevator is slow. However, in no way was it dirty.. We walked to the beach across the road. We ate elsewhere so I can't comment on the restaurant. There is a bar at the pool but we wanted to enjoy the beach while we could. Didn't have a car but signs for beach parking were $30 a day so I think their price for valet parking is cheaper than the street. Taxi to or from the airport runs about $25. They do have a shuttle (not complimentary) to take you to places and there is a concierge at the desk during the day to help you holiday plan and to buy tickets for the Trolley, which is a block away in two directions, depending on which route you take. Cost is what you have to spend to be on the beach. Would definitely stay here again.

I am happy to hear that we were able to assist you with early arrival and extend a helpful late check out accomodate your flight departure. We have a great beach front location on a world class beach. Part of our hotel modernization will include updates to our elevators. I hope on future cruises you will stay with us again.

This was our third time at the Courtyard! Can't say enough about this hotel. Love the proximity, Love the rooms and the views! Very clean, spacious rooms. Upper Scale Courtyard with reasonable prices. Was however disappointed being a gold Marriott member they no longer offer complimentary breakfast to gold members. This was one of the main reason I booked this hotel. Being a family of 5 we appreciate our complimentary breakfast. Our previous stays we always had breakfast vouchers. Apparently this is a "owner" choice per Marriott. Recommend St. Bart's beachfront location directly below the hotel on the boardwalk Excellent prices and food.

Room Tip: This trip we had a room on the side. Beachfront and inter coastal views. All beautiful. Not sure...
