The Merriweather Resort is the perfect beach location in Fort Lauderdale. It is one of a very small number of low-rise accommodations on a strip of mostly very high-rise accommodations. It is nestled between the Ritz Carlton and the Westin. The view from our unit was what you see as The Merriweather's tripadvisor picture. In one minute we could be on the beach. It is just across the street which is easy to cross.
The property manager, Mary Jo, keeps the place very clean and comfortable. She and her staff fix any issue very quickly and give great advice on sightseeing in the area. The pool area was completely rebuilt a couple years ago and is beautiful and the pool is heated. The Merriweather is just steps from Beach Place which has a drugstore and several shops and restaurants. Other restaurants and bars are a short walk away. We drove some for sightseeing and getting groceries, but mostly we were content to enjoy the beach and restaurants nearby.
Our one-bedroom unit had a large living/dining area and bedroom with a king-size bed with a new firm mattress. There were two bathrooms as well as a large closet and a small closet. The kitchen was very small, but it was fine for the amount of cooking that we did. The wireless internet connection worked well when we set our laptop near the front window, closest to the router in the office.
Thanks to Mary Jo and her staff for making our stay so enjoyable. We will definitely stay at The Merriweather Resort in the future.
