Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach - a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel
Ranked #54 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 17 January 2013

Good location and the walkway across the road to the beach was good. Close to everything but not noisy at night. Pool area good with the addition of cushions on sun loungers. Beds very comfortable and nice linen Very good gift shop. We stayed 3 nights pre-cruise, not sure if we would have wanted to stay longer. No complaints but didn't have the wow factor like the Atlantic hotel and spa.

Room Tip: We had a corner room which overlooked the inland waterway but with sea views too..recommended!

Nice beachfront location. Our room had a nice veiw on the marina. We arrived late with 4 suitcases and hand bags... no assistance to help us to carry you luggages. But, staff was friendly. Hotel is clean. And a good restaurant in front of the hotel offers breakfasts. A short ride from airport and cruiseport.

Room Tip: ask for a room with a view on the marina

We stayed for a weekend there. The room was nice, view was great. The service from a couple of desk members was non existent. I remember one of them acting like they were doing me a favor when I asked to get a wine key. The lady bartender was really great.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the elevator with a beach or marina view. The halls can be long on the marin...

Dear Taylor 200,

Thank you for choosing us for your weekend getaway. I'm sorry to hear that not all staff members were accommodating or friendly and have addressed this with our team. I'm glad our bartenders were able to show you what our true hospitality is all about. Please feel free to share any additional comments with us and I hope you will consider us for your next trip.

Kind regards,

Having not been to Luderdale for many years we chose to spend New Year there on a more budget conscious holiday.
The Hotel we were told had been upgraded by Hilton and to be fair it did look like a "tired hotel " had been given a face lift.
The rooms are of a good size , large double bed and in our case a great ocean view. During our stay i had the impression the Hotel was run on a budget , too few staff , particularly maids etc. The room was very poorly cleaned ( if at all ) some days just beds made and a quick tidy. We were not happy with the cleanliness of the rooms.
Generally the Hotel staff were very pleasant particularly breakfast and bar staff.
The location of the Hotel is ok for Marina and beach , however this end of Lauderdale on the beach is a little old and scruffy.

For a budget type trip it was fine but not a luxury oceanfront Hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms are the same only the views differ

Dear 750Davep,

Thank you for choosing to stay with us for the New Year. I would hate for any guest to think we do anything half-way. I'm working with our teams including housekeeping to ensure our rooms are being serviced according to our strict protocols and all other areas of service are met. Thank you for bringing your experience to our attention so we can be more vigilant in our daily operations. We hope that you will consider staying with us again. We'd love to get your impression of how we're doing.

Warm regards,

Nice place! Got there early and they took good care of us letting us check in early and go out and explore Ft. Lauderdale! Friendly Staff. Clean. I hope we can come back and spend more time. Bridge over the busy road was very convienent and made crossing so much easier. Very close to cruise piers and a short walk to shops and restaurants.

We chose the Bahia Mar for its beachfront location for an overnight stay prior to a cruise. We had stayed here several years before, in the marina building, and were not really impressed with the property, but still liked the location. This time we booked a partial ocean view room in the tower building, and the view was excellent! The property is older, and is showing its age a bit, but was clean and in good repair. We could see both the beach/ocean and also the cruise port from our 16th story room. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is within walking distance of stores, restaurants, the intercoastal water taxi, and of course, Ft. Lauderdale beach! We would definitely stay again!

Room Tip: The partial ocean view room, particularly on the higher floors, was quiet and comfortable with an ex...

Stayed at the Bahia Mar in October 2012 for 4 days. The hotel is situated with a marina surrounding the entire property with no adjacent buildings. There is a walkway over the road in front of the hotel that goes directly to the beach. The hotel pool is small, but a nice place to lay around if that is what you like to do. There is a small store on the property that sells beer and wine if you need a room supply. Our room was what was expected, nothing too fancy but nice. This is very good hotel for a beach vacation away from the noise. The hotel seemed family friendly and has a nice morning breakfast buffet. Clean, safe, convenient, and walkable to shops and restaurants. Service was responsive to requests.
