This was my first time in Ft. lauderdale and this was the place to stay. Great food, nice staff, great pool! Each day @ 2:30 they serve cookies and lemonade by the pool. And they show moves at the pool on Friday night. Overall, a great place to stay.

Today, sadly, is our last day at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. The facilities were beautiful and we will certainly miss waking up to the ocean view each morning. Every single staff member we met were friendly and offered to assist us in any/every way. We especially appreciated the advice/guidance from Mark at the concierge desk. Though there is no need to leave the resort between the pool, beach, water sports and land sports, restaurants and shops are easily walkable from the hotel. It was a great stay!

We had high hopes when booking this hotel. The property is beautiful, the beach wonderful, but the management of the hotel did a poor job of keeping the air conditioning properly monitored, resulting in a very hot lobby. The hallways were excessively hot too. The front desk staff were curt. The hotel was taken over by 500 teenagers in a very large group, which was terrible. The elevators were packed, and these teenagers were very noisy. I had to call security to get them to quite down, so I could finally get some sleep. So be careful when booking here over weekends.

Room Tip: Make sure the hotel does not have groups of teenagers booked for the weekend. Ask for an oceanfront...

The hotel's elegant style is inviting, with first class accommodations and service, a very good restaurant and a spa; the ideal place to relax, unwind and refresh. It is a wonderful honeymoon getaway, or, as my parents often did, chose to begin and end their cruise ship experiences with (the cruise ships are nearby, a quick and easy taxi ride away).

The hotel and its surroundings are spacious so be prepared to do a lot of walking and exploring. Although most of the beachfront hotels are across the street from the more populated beach, this elegant hotel is sequestered away from the main road and busier beaches. The soft, sandy, spacious beach is sequestered away enough from the main beaches and roads so that you feel as if you are on your own private hotel beach. If you prefer a more populated, sand-free setting, the Marriott has an enormous beautiful outdoor pool with a casual outdoor pool restaurant.

You can spend a week at this hotel without traveling anywhere else, but if you do want to venture out, take a short drive north on Ocean Blvd. and turn west on Las Olas. The street is filled with high-end shops and restaurants of all tastes and price ranges, from inexpensive to exhorbitant.

Room Tip: If you secure a beachfront view, especially in the cooler winter months, you can shut off the A/C an...

The hotel was beautiful, (we got the wrong room, but got a leave in bed) the air was perfect and the facilities was very good. The hotel was located right to the beach were you could rent sun beds and umbrellas, you could also choose the pool area who was huge and very nice. Total rating of the hotel is excellent.

But the beach restaurant pulls down the score a bit. The service at the beach restaurant was horrible! They sent us the wrong check, not twice but tree times. They also gave us the food that was attended for the table beside us. Not recommended to order food from the beach either, the food never came and we had to pay for it. (we did not get any apologies)

But I will defiantly book the hotel again.

My wife & I had planned a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale for our 30th Anniversary. I wanted to find a nice romantic place for pre and post cruise. I researched the hotels in the area and chose the Harbour Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. This is a beautiful upscale hotel. The property was imaculate. Location is right on their private beach. Beautiful pool, and great service. We had booked inside rooms but each time we were upgraded to ocean view balcony. The rooms are smaller than I thought they might be but certainly big enough. The beds were heavenly. I woke up early the one morning and watched our cruise ship sail into the port. Post cruise we arrived at 11.00 AM & they let us leave our bags with the bell captain and we enjoyed the pool. Our room was ready less than an hour later. We spent our last day in Florida playing in the ocean & pool.
We never had to pay for parking because we arrived by taxi but the rate for valet is expensive so plan for that. Also the restaurant prices are on the high side. We ate 2 meals on property so it was OK for us since we were sightseeing in the area & ate elsewhere for the most part.
Even though our children are grown we did enjoy watching the movies that the played at poolside on the Friday & Saturday nights. If we were to return to this area we would likely stay at this resort again.
The weekend we were there the hotel was hosting a pharmacist convention. This probably resulted in a little bit of overcrowding but I felt the resort handled it well. It did slow the service at one of the restaurants for us but it was no big deal.
