Courtyard Fort Lauderdale Beach
Ranked #19 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 August 2012

We chose this hotel on a whim for a last minute get away and glad we did! The hotel is well maintained, the staff is friendly, and the location is perfect if you're without a car as it is walking distance to: Restaurants, night life, water taxi and is across the street from the beach. The hotel pool is small and is shaded after about 1-2pm when the sun heads West behind the hotel. The hotel does not have beach chairs but they can be rented from vendors for $10. The beds were a bit firm for my taste, but not the worst. Overall, a great experience.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side have intercoastal views and were quiet. Rooms facing the beach also face the...

Lance at the front desk is the bomb! He was so cool to our kids and we had a couple of rough days of traveling so it was greatly appreciated. They gave us free vouchers for drinks and bubba gump shrimp appetizers. The location could not be better, in the center of everything.

Get a water view room if you can swing it. This was a slurge for us but we just came from the Lauderdale Beachside (roach) motel and needed it. The view is killer the rooms are tasteful with mellow colors. Nice pool and outdoor bar area. Free cookies for the kids in the lobby at 5pm, they arranged affordable transportation to the airport for a morning flight. Early morning brunch. We have no complaints on this place.

I'd like to come back here sometime with my husband for a romantic weekend.

Room Tip: room 808 has a killer view!

I really liked this hotel. It was beautiful and close to the beach and lots of eateries and shops. the staff were awesome and I just couldn't speak more highly of the property... However the walls are like they might as well have hund a dang piece of paper around the room and called that a wall. you could literally hear everything going on around you from room service beating on someones door at 130am to the people next door having sex and each time they went tinkle it was simply nuts other than the walls and it being a sold out hotel I really liked this place. will definately go again next time we will know to also purchase a corner room or the one next to us just so we don't have neighbors.

Room Tip: I can't really say like I said the room we had was poorly insulated, obviously

Pros:
-The hotel was clean and the staff was friendly.
-Basically ON the beach. Beach is great for sun bathing and swimming. Great locaiton for kids, couples, families, etc.
-On the main strip so there is a lot to do in a walkable area (you don't NEED a car)
-Lots of activities within walking distance like water taxi, boats, etc.

Cons:
-The pool. It would be great for kids but it is very very very small for adults. Not heated and not that clean. We didn't need it through b/c it was so close to the beach.
-No breakfast included in hotel stay and the buffet is $16 a person. Walkable restaurants will run you about the same for breakfast. There is a great CVS down the street so you can pick up breakfast food and keep it in the hotel frig for a cheaper start to the day.
-The exterior of the hotel. It is by far the ugliest hotel on the entire strip. Don't let the outside look deceive you...it is nicer inside. BUT it does need an update from the 70s.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a "partial ocean view". You are on the side of the hotel and get an ama...

I voted to stay at the Trumph International Hotel in Miami Florida but because I was with a group of people and some people were watching their pockets we had to stay here. I did not agree with this particular hotel and the reviews really threw me off but I decided to just go with the flow.

My stay here turned out to be great. The workers are full of hospitality and appears to really love thier jobs. I had only one problem and that was the tub/shower was dirty on my arrival. It took someone less than 5min to come and clean the shower. Each time I called the front desk I got what I needed almost immediately. The valet service was outstanding. The valet service itself makes it worth staying here. This was like staying in a 2.5star hotel with 5star service. The only reason I marked it a 2.5 is because it doesn't have that modern fin'est that other hotels have. Looking at the pics the pool seems awful but it was actually a decent pool. It was small but just fine for us. The patio where the pool was, was very comfortable and accomadating. There's a Bubba Gumps right down stairs and the beach is just across the street with easy access. Now if you think you have a water view, think again. You have to basically break your neck to see the beach from your room. The rooms were clean and nice. Of course this hotel have some flaws but if I can stay there anyone can. Please believe that. We had a really great time. As a matter of fact my sisters and I have already started planning to go back and stay in the same hotel.

Tried this hotel for the first time last week. The staff is outstanding; very welcoming and helpful. Loved having a balcony in my room. The location is just great for getting around Broward County.

It’s great to hear what a nice time you had while visiting Miami, but we believe you have posted for the wrong hotel. We hope the next time you are in the area, you will give us a try at the Marriott Fort Lauderdale Beach.

just returned from a week at the courtyard. This was my third trip back so its safe to say this hotel is great. Right off the beach, on the main street with all the restaurants and bars and shopping. However, if you are looking to eat dinner at this hotel, stop looking! They have a lovely restuarant that is CLOSED at night. A few nights it was stormy and having to go out to eat was a bit of a hassle. I don't understand why they do open the restuarant only for lunch. Also, the bartenders in the day should go back to bartending school. With the expection of Paula, (who is AMAZING), no one else knows what they are doing. Tried to order lunch twice and twice it was messed up. Lastly, unless you are sitting at a table eating, there is absolutely no shade from the sun. Florida can be pretty hot and having some shade to cool off in would be nice. I cannot tell you how many people we saw openly complaining about this problem. Just a few umbrellas would make a big difference.
