B Ocean Resort Fort Lauderdale

Reviewed August 26, 2012

After reading the ratings from 5 down to 1 - - I was apprehensive in staying here after making the reservation. Forget those who rated it 1, 2 or even 3. This is a very nice hotel on the beach. A great place to stay pre- or post- a cruise. There are several towers - - so there could be walking involved from places to eat, sleep and play !!! Eating in the Mexican Restaurant for breakfast and dinner was very good. It is not a 'rice-and-bean' place. Eating outside patio was a plus since the acoustics in the inside were almost un-bearable. The music was much too loud which resulted in everyone yelling at each other in order to hear. The Shipwreck Bar was even worse. Eating lunch out at the Beach Bar/pool area was also a plus. Great view of the ocean and pool. We had a very nice view of the Ocean - although most of it was blocked by the Beachfront Tower and a 'humangus' condo next door. Wish I would have had a balcony although the windows are floor to ceiling and wall to wall.

Room Tip: There could be a lot of walking involved - - depends which tower that you are assigned. Rooms are v...

Dear billanddoyle: We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel. Our location is ideal, as we are one of the few hotels actually located on Fort Lauderdale Beach and in close proximity to local restaurants, the cruise port, and unique shopping. Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to Sunny Fort Lauderdale!

Our stay was great. We were given a room in the beach tower which was the best! The pool and beach were steps away. The room was spacious and clean. We requested a regrigerator upon check-in and this was delivered promptly. The beach and pool attendants were friendly. My only comment about the pool is that it closes too early in the evening. On our last night we wanted to sit outdoors by the pool but it was very dark. There should be more lighting.

In our case, parking was included in our room rate but I nonetheless find that paying "extra" for your car at a hotel is ludicrous. My only other complaint is that there is a maximum of 2 beach chairs per room. Additional chairs are charged extra. This is not right if the room is reserved for a family of 3 or 4.

I don't like to complain but in this case it's warranted. We had a balcony room, the bathroom door was broken so our family had to use it open, the rooms are very dated and abused. We weren't going to complain until we wake up and both pools are closed on a saturday morning they say to clean , but the didn't clean them just poured harse chemicals in them to kill the germs, when they opened you could find plastic cups and hair on the bottom. I told the front desk about the door, they sent someone after a couple hours, he told us he couldn't fix it and we would have to move rooms, not cool but we did, we paid extra for a balcony and they moved us to a room right over the smoking area, (suppose to be smoke free rooms! So I guess your not suppose to slide the glass door open for the balcony you paid extra for?) not cool again since my daughter has ashma, I call the front desk, they say sorry no room lefts. I demand to talk to front desk manager, she calls me back, says the same thing, except I was on starwoods site at that moment and they had plenty , I call her on her lie and tell her I could book one of these non-existing rooms right that minute, she doesn't know what to say, then she says let me check again, she finds one like we paid for but she says it will be a couple more hours till it's ready and it still might get the smoke from the smoking area since it's only one over. It's 3:30 right now, if I booked online that moment for that room check-in would be at 4pm so it wouldn't be ready? Right ? Unprofessional all the way! so we are DOWN-Graded to a lower room on the street side, she offers free parking and 10,000 SPG points for all the hassles, we paid an extra $89 a night for the balcony and were getting $40 worth of free parking. But the 10,000 points calms me and I just want to leave this place in the morning so I except. Ofcourse weeks later I check SPG.com she never gives me the 10,000 points and I even confirmed my SPG number when checking out. Don't trust no one thier they all lie! Even the lady working in the gift shop tried to rip us off, tells us the sunscreen is buy one get 50% off then rings it up full price , I didn't notice my wife does after we leave, she demands a refund. I can go on about the boy working the beach umbrella's as well, again rude. Honestly it's a nice location and that's it. Hoyt Harper who runs Shearton should fire the front desk manager and send the hotel manager to training along with a few others who work thier.
One note the lowest people on the totem pole working thier are the nicest most freindly of them all! Maintenance & Housekeeping should be the ones in charged here!

Hotel in three towers we stopped in beech tower, room was clean and spacious although I don't think it was a sweet sleeper bed like in other shetatons. Outside area let hotel down as a bit shan't and needs better maintance and cleaning. Pool in main building has windows into a funky bar area and they do a fabolous mermaid show, it was a nice surprise. Hotel has good character

We stayed at the hotel for four days and it was wonderful. We had a beach front room. It was spacious and very clean. Yes, the hotel is older and could use some updating, but how long do you really spend in the room anyway. The staff were wonderful and very helpful and accommodating. The bathroom could use more counter space and hooks to hand wet bathing suits. Was not crazy about the sliding door in the bathroom that had no lock. I would go back again.

Room Tip: Ask for the beach hotel if it is available.

So, a very belated review on our stay Dec 2011 - Jan 2012 for 10 days. We had previously stayed here a couple of times before their remodel. Before = UGH but great location. Now = Very nice job with great location ... none better in our opinion. We are SPG members and stayed here on points only (7,000 per nite) for part of stay and Cash and Points for rest. What a deal. Oceanfront hotel for CHEAP. We stayed in the tower overlooking the marina. EXCELLENT choice. Ask for a NORTH facing room on high floor. We got to see the marina, causeway coming and goings as well as the OCEAN. What more could you want?

Staff super friendly and accomodating. We had a family member with special needs and they did a great job working with us, and when they blew it... they made it right ASAP.

Highly, highly recommend this hotel. And if you aren't a SPG member (using the AM EX credit card) ---- u are NUTS.

Room Tip: Ask for tower room facing NORTH to see marina and the ocean

I stood here in mid July from thursday till sunday,My first like was the location it was great for us becouse we were doing a lot of back and forth driving to look at houses in south florida so geting to differnt parts was easy especially that this hotel is the first one on the strip. At night driveing to the Hardrock Casino in Hollywood was only 15min drive,the beach was nice didn't like that they take the chairs at 7pm to early for me. The pool is small but nice that you can walk back and forth from the beach from.
The rooms are clean not so upgraded but nice enough for the value.
Dos Caminos resturant and the bar with the swiming mermaids were cool a must see even if your not staying at this hotel.
