My family of 5 have stayed at many, many Marriott's even one the week before this trip. We booked this hotel after seeing the reviews and have always enjoyed our stay with any Marriott, except this trip. This was my husbands first trip to Fort Lauderdale and he flew in a later than me since he was away at business in another state. I checked into the hotel at 9pm with just my daughter and was told that my room we had already booked and paid for was given to someone else. The man at the front said he was upgrading me to a better one but in fact gave me a downgrade. The same man also argued with me about my childs breakfast coupons that we had paid for telling me that she was not under 12!! (She is tall for her age but there is no reason to argue with a paying guest about their own child!) Once we got in the room it was very hot and even though the air was on 65 degrees I knew something was wrong. I called down to front desk and they had maintance come up to fix the air. I was told it would get cooler soon but 3 hours later when my husband's plane landed and he came in to hotel it was still hot as could be!! The outside temperature was even over 95 degrees! He called down again to front desk and was told they had no other rooms in the hotel available for us. We were so exhausted and didn't want to wake our child and go to another hotel at 3am!!!! The next morning we showered and left the hotel in seek of air with a promise of a new room when we returned. Once we returned we were again told we had to wait for another room to become available which would not be until 7pm. We went out to dinner and came back later that night to switch rooms. We were pleased that the hotel gave us an upgrade (it's the least they could do) but still not a happy customer. The bellhop was slow in getting our luggage and car. The pool was dingy and looked dirty, we didn't dare venture in. The upgraded room was nice, clean, great view and the bed was comfortable however the shower head did not stay fixed to the wall, the maid didn't leave toilet paper (we had to call down at 1am to get some) there was no blankets on the pull out couch either and another call down we made to get some and last but finally least the day that we were checking out there was a big rain storm and several windows in the room started leaking and spraying out water all over the place. We called down to the front desk to let them know of the flooding and then we quickly packed our bags and left and didn't look back until we got to the front desk and then had to dispute our bill as there were items that we should not have been charged for. We were not happy with our stay at this hotel and should of checked out at the first sign of trouble but wanted to give them a chance to make things better, having no air and water shooting across your room is definitely not better. We will take our business elsewhere in the future.

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 pool and pool bar, therefore may be noisier.

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 amazing view out a huge window.
