“Beautiful Rooms.....Ocean Views!!!!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2012

My husband and I just got back from a weeklong stay in Florida. Our original stay was to be at the Residence Inn in Pompano Beach. However, after just one night in that hotel, we rebooked the rest of the week at the Residence Inn in Delray Beach. That was the best decision of our vacation that we made! Upon our arrival we were greeted by a courteous, smiling front desk clerk. We explained to her that we had originally planned on spending our vacation at the Residence Inn in Pompano Beach, but had decided to come to Delray Beach because of the problems we had in Pompano. At the time of our arrival in Delray there were no rooms available on the high floors (we requested an oceanfront suite), so after parking our car in the covered parking area (yes, covered parking and no valet charges here!) we decided to walk the streets and get a bite to eat. As we walked out past the front the hotel, the front desk clerk came running out of the door telling us that our room was ready. I really appreciate the fact that she hunted us down to let us know instead of waiting for us to come back later. We took the elevator to the 7th floor and walked into a wonderful smell......it was a clean, fresh room (unlike Pompano). There was a small kitchen area immediately as you come in and then the living room and finally a beautiful, spacious balcony with a table and 2 chairs. Off of the living room was the spacious bedroom with a king size bed and bathroom and yet another balcony with 2 adirondack chairs. Yes, this suite had 2 balconies and a beautiful 180 degree view of the beautiful turquoise ocean. It was breathtaking! Below us was the pool (which was totally empty) and a wonderful hot tub. The street is lined with small boutiques, cafes, pizza and ice cream shops. At night it is so pretty with all the palm trees lining the street adorned with white lights. There are numerous shops and dining along the entire street, from the beach to past the intercoastal waterway. The beach is only a 2 1/2 block walk, and the sand is soft and fluffy on your feet. I think what surprised me most about this beach is the fact that the water was crystal clear, to the point where you could see to the bottom of the ocean floor. There were no shells, just a little bit of seaweed and clear, calm, blue water. Once you swam out past the breakers, it was like swimming in a lake. I was sorry I had not packed some sort of blowup flotation device so I could just float in the water for hours. I would highly recommend you pack something if you like to just float around. There are lounge chairs and umbrellas on the beach that you can rent for $30 a day. We were lucky enough to inquire at the front desk about locations to purchase chairs instead of renting them daily. Another couple had just checked out that morning and had purchased 2 beach chairs and gave them to the front desk to give to someone else to use. The clerk gave them to us and just asked that we return them to her at the end of our stay. We ended up using those chairs every day we went to the beach, so a big THANK YOU goes out to whoever purchased those chairs. On our last day there we handed the chairs over to the front desk and saw another couple getting ready to go to the beach. We told them the story about someone else purchasing the chairs and us using them while we were here and let them know that they were available for their use now. They were so grateful to us even though we were not the original purchasers. So again, thank you, kind strangers for your thoughtful generosity! My husband and I have stayed at numerous Marriott hotels and we love the fact that Residence Inn provides a full breakfast. Usually they are the same choices every day, however this one provided us with something different most days. There were always scrambled eggs, but some days there was also french toast, or potato pancakes, or some other hot choice. There was also a selection of yogurts, cereals, waffle making, bagels, pastries, juices, etc. I was really impressed with the fact that there was a small refrigerator with cartons of milk, chocolate milk and V8 juice. The only thing that I wish they could have provided was more fresh fruit. Other than that, it was a feast! In our weeks' stay, there were 2 social hours in the evenings. The first one provided soup, caesar salad, breadsticks, brownies and cold cans of soda or iced tea. The second one was a BBQ with hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, chocolate chip cookies and soda and iced tea. So along with a great breakfast, we were able to have a dinner provided for us a couple of times also. As far as things to do in the area, we took the yacht tour, which is walking distance from the hotel, right across the bridge. It was a 2 hour tour of the Intercoastal Waterway. You will see magnificent houses on this tour and spending an afternoon on a yacht was fun too! We also went to Butterfly World, which the kids will certainly like. The butterflies fly all around you, sometimes even landing on you. It's really beautiful to see all of their colors flying so close to you. There's also the Everglades airboat tours, which were really fun, but the loudness might scare some small children (even with wearing earplugs that they give you before boarding). And for any shopping that's a little different from the typical mall, there's the Festival Flea Market on Sample Road. It's a huge, indoor market with all kinds of clothing, jewelry, shoes, handbags, food, etc. This is a good place to go on a rainy day. Be sure to check out all of the coupons and brochures that are available near the front desk for any of these tours. All in all, my husband and I had a wonderful stay at this hotel and are already planning a return visit. If it's in your budget, try to get an oceanfront room and one that is at least on the 6th floor. Anything below that will not give you much of a view. Hope your stay will be as good as ours!

Room Tip: Try to book oceanfront if you can and ask for a high floor. End suites offer a view of the streets...

Stayed here 2 nights for a wedding. Stayed at lots of residence inn and other Marriott properties and this was not up to par. Needs updating, tired decor, stained musty carpets, old furniture, drapes, stinky rooms, not 100 percent clean bathrooms, generic toiletries, staff seem rushed and understaffed, one elevator was broken and with a full hotel and being on a high floor it was annoying to wait on the elevator. There are better hotels in the area for less. You are paying for the location but it wasn't worth it. Mold growing in pool, yuck. We won't be back.

Rooms are very spacious for a family of 4 or more and the location you can't beat just steps from the beach and restaurants. Very clean and nice pool. Also, they served complimentary hot breaksfast not a continental one.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floor and you'll get an ocean view

Had a junior suite which was a mini-apartment with small kitchen. It was functional and reasonable size, nothing glamourous.

Great location, just lacks character. Free breakfast buffet was OK, not spectacular and breakfast area got very busy.

Lots of great restaurants on the other side of the intracoastal along Atlantic. Beach within easy walking distance as well.

Room Tip: Don't bother with a junior suite - it's not that exciting

I stayed at the Residence Inn Marriott in Delray and it was great. The staff were very friendly, the hotel is located five minutes from the beach (walking), hot breakfast included, central to all the shops, great pool, great staff and I would love to go back to this particular hotel.

Room Tip: some higher floors have an ocean view.
