B Ocean Resort Fort Lauderdale
Ranked #44 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 28 August 2011

Every staff member made an effort to smile and speak. We stayed during the Governor's Hurricane conference, and the staff made sure I had a lovely room for my granddaughter & me while my husband attended the conference. The concierge make excellent suggestions, and when I left my book at the pool, a call to security resulted in it being hand delivered return the next day. The tower may be a far distance from the beach, but get a nice high room as the view is outstanding!
LOVED IT!

Room Tip: Get a very high room in the tower on the north side. Outstanding views!

Thank you for your response. We try very hard to make all our guests feel special. Yes, the views in the North Tower also called the Marina Tower are outstanding. We look forward to welcoming you back to next year's Governor's Hurricane Conference and anytime in between. Thank you.

This place is a dump. The bathrooms are tiny. Everything is old and run down. NO SHUTTLE to pick you up from airport. NO microwave. NO refrigerator. NO free internet in rooms. EXTREMELY RUDE STAFF! Tried to get refund prior to stay and unable to because "booked on line." Almost totally ruined my trip. I did not get what I paid for. I paid for bacanony room with an ocean view. I got a tiny GHETTO room with a balcony and a view of trees. OCEAN VIEW? It did not look like the photos. The photos are deceptive. The place is ghetto. DIRTY, NASTY, HORRIBLE place that I'm still trying to forget. NEVER will I stay in another SHERATON after my stay at the SEABREEZE BEACH Hotel because it was such a bad experiene.

This is a fantastic hotel, right on the beach with outstanding service!
We stayed there for eight nights. First night we had a room in Marine Tower which is a bit farther from everything. However, the room was very nice, clean with full top to bottom window looking to the ocean. The next day we were lucky to get an upgrade to the balcony room. That was absolutely fantastic ! Especially if you are getting higher floor.
Balconies are located in the Main building only.
Service is outstanding ! We got pampered all the way. Every single request was answered just in seconds. We also were able to get a free mini-fridge because we traveled with baby. Which was very nice to have. Special thanks to Christine and Camila. These two ladies made our stay so comfortable and worry-free. So we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The only few minor suggestions that I can make is that would be very nice to have a little play room with some toys for 2-3 year old ones. And food is kind of pricey, especially drinks. Be careful when ordering movies on demand. Some of them can cost you around $20. Somehow, they charge you not by movie but time that you watch it. If you get to pause it several times, it can be very costly. Overall, it was a very pleasant stay thanks to the hotel staff.

Room Tip: Get a balcony room if you can. Suggestion room # 534 or 532. Main building, 5th floor

We stayed in the Sheraton Beach hotel for 2 nights on our way to a cruise and it was an excellent hotel. As it says its literally on the beach, we had a room with a sea view and balcony. The room was fairly spacious fine bathroom with shower ,clean, overall the room was excellent, the view was stunning.You walk a maybe a minute to the private beach with an bar, food etc.. also a waiter service on the beach.You receive a complimentary beach towel and sun lounger (although tipping is advisable , its the states !)." fine bars in the hotel , a restraunt. I cant say a lot wrong about the hotel.Fort Lauderdale is an idyllic spot anyway. So we had 2 good nights and then went off on our cruise , very happy and content with our hotel.

Pleasant enough hotel . Stayed in the Beach Tower which was adjacent to the large pool and then a great beach. Overall staff was helpful and friendly. The gentleman who worked the garage across the street was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. The rooms were very clean. The location was not right in the center of activity but fine.
Cons : food was expensive. parking also very expensive. No real shade areas at the pool area. No free internet in the room even for members. The computers in the open area "business center " were constantly used by teens playing games .
Would return if the price were right.

Room Tip: Ocean Tower and / or Ocean View Rooms

We chose this hotel for its location on the ocean and I'm really with position ,just on the beach,few steps from the ocean and close to Las Olas Bulevard.
The good points for the hotels are finished for me:
Staff at reception is rude ,unhelpfull false and artful.
Parking is very expensive and very far from the main building.
they have valets that help to reach your room with luggage trolley.
AC had some problem .
Ice vending at our floor didn't work for 2 days
They charge you for TOLL FREE calls(few cents )
They have 2 pools:the outdoor one is amazing but very crowed so we preferred the ocean.
I din't want to return here.

Stayed for 6 nights. Weekends in August were much busier. Nice hotel, recently renovated.

PROS: Good beach service (abundant towels, large chairs). Great view - if possible, get a higher-floor room, ocean view. Breakfast-inclusive rate was great ($119, with up to $22 to spend at the Starbucks for breakfast). 'Link' place with free computers and free internet. No streets to cross to get to the beach.

CONS: No safe or fridge in room. Daily additionals are on the expensive side: $25 for parking (valet, $19 for self), $9.95 for internet, per device, $15 for beach umbrella. Overall, reasonable price if you have a good room rate. Noisy travelers during the weekend - more people in beach and pool, a number of kids shouting and running.

Room Tip: Higher-floor, ocean-view rooms are great - worth the extra dollar.
