Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach - a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel
Ranked #55 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The main feature is the view and location near (not on) the beach. The beach is reached via a walkway over the road. The main feeling that I got from the hotel was that it was trying to be something it is not, and that is a high class hotel, the restaurant is in the foyer and doesn't afford much privacy, it's fine for breakfast but doesn't lend itself to a relaxed dining experience. The side entrance from the car park brings you right through the 'restaurant' given the relatively pricey menu wasn't value for money. The rooms are a bit tired, the balcony non existent, you can't sit out on it. The car parking is pricey and makes the hotel more pricey than it should be. The lifts are really slow would not be a problem if you could use the stairwell, which you can't as they are only fire exits! Would not use this hotel again, nor would I recommend it.

Stayed: January 2013, traveled on business

My husband and I stayed at the Bahia Mar back in September and were met with a warm and gracious staff! The hotel was under renovation (which we knew going in) but it was fine as we were spending much of our trip going around town. We chose the hotel because we wanted a relaxing, unpretentious vacation and the rooftop bar/grill area was amazing. We went during off peak season so it was quiet and not too rambunctious. We had food by the pool at the pub area and were entertained by a tin player on a Friday!

Breezes bar and grill was reasonably priced and the staff were great as well. My favorite part of the hotel was the connecting bridge to the beach. We didn't have to even cross A1A expressway to get to the beach..I was in love! I recommend this hotel to anyone who is trying to just relax and get away. We were able to walk all down A1A where there are plenty of restaurants and small cafes. The ride down to Las Olas Blvd was short and not expensive.

This hotel has very modern rooms with excellent amentities. The ocenfront rooms were large, had a beautiful view of the beach, very comfortable beds and were spacious. The deli/convenience store attached to the hotel was wonderful and provided excellent breakfast, snacks, drinks, etc.

The hotel had a very nice pool, sundeck, bar and, exercise area. It also has a walkway over the 4 lane road between the hotel and beach.

This was an excellent location, had trolley service availble for 50 cents per trip, is next to the Jungle Queen which provided an excellent river cruise & dinner.

Room Tip: Ocenfront rooms were very nice.

They always say that when it comes to real estate, location is the most important quality and this hotel has a fabulous location. It is across the street (that has a walkway over the road so no worries about crossing the busy street) from a lovely beach. If you are there on the weekends, in late afternoon you can watch the cruise ships leave port. It is also beside a marina with yachts and pelicans to entertain you. It is near the Intercoastal Waterway so you can ride boats that provide tours and dinner cruises. A few good restaurants nearby and in a safe area of Ft. Lauderdale. The hotel has a lovely pool, bar and recreational toys for families; pool tables, ping pong tables near the pool. Will return this hotel!!

Room Tip: There are two buildings. We stayed in the building beside the marina. Recommend the odd numbered roo...

Had occasion to stay at this hotel 3/10-3/12....Hotel getting dated ...Nice location off the beach, but service at breakfast was not up to standards. Waited 15 minutes...had to ask for water and refills on coffee...One day, one of two elevators was broken....the one working went to 2nd floor did not go to lobby went up. Many people off and on, rode elevator twice . Wife almost passed out.
Pillows on bed extra small too soft.

We stayed here once before and found it to be a very convenient location with wonderful views. Staff is accommodating and friendly. Rooms were well maintained. Walk across the street to beach or sit by the pool and relax with a drink.

I've stayed here many times over the past 15 years, and Hilton has definitely improved the place. Under the last ownership, the rooms really were ratty, climate control didn't work, etc. it's pretty nice now! New carpet in the rooms, flat screen tv's etc. Haven't tried the restaurant.

Room Tip: IF you can't get in the tower, the rooms with a balcony overlooking Bahia Mar marina are great.
