“Great Hotel for a Dream Wedding”
Reviewed 15 November 2009

I recently got married at this Marriott on 4th of July weekend with 200 guests and it was beyond my expectations. The General Manager (Joel Darr) and Celso Ramos (Event Coordinator) were so wonderful to work with. I felt at ease throughout the whole planning process and I have both of them to thank. They both were so professional but at the same time made the planning process fun for me. I hear horror stories from my friends who have to deal with such horrible customer service at other hotels where they were having their wedding. I am so thankful that I had a great experience. I can't say enough great things about the planning process.
When the big day finally approached, I was amazed how great the wedding turned out. I couldn't of pictured it any different! Every guest raved about our food (filet and grouper) and the service. The food was fantastic and the team did such a great job of catering to us and our guests on the big day. Joel and Celso made sure everything went perfect. I didn't not have one worry throughout the whole day because I knew they were taking care of everything for us and they allowed us to enjoy every second. Even my glass of champagne never went half empty. It was unbelievable the treatment we received! Every bride and groom should feel the way we did about our wedding day and this could of never happened without the team at Marriott!! Many of friends can't wait to get married there one day and I look forward to remembering that day forever!! Joel is doing such a great job running that hotel and has such a great staff! There is not one complaint I have for this hotel!!

Customer Service
First I would like to say, I will give this hotel a 4 for customer service alone. When we arrived, I was met and welcomed at the door by the desk clerk. We arrived early and he was able to provide a room with a great view on the 14th floor. Before we went up I told the desk clerk we were in town for a high school football game. The concierge and desk clerk proceeded to give me directions and told me we were less than 2 miles away from the stadium. After we went to the room, we decided we were hungry and wanted to go get something to eat. We went back down stairs and was looking for the concierge when one of the bellmen asked us if he could help. We told him we were looking for a recommendation for a place for lunch. He stopped what he was doing and gave us a recommendation and directions to this fabulous place. The name was Blue Moon Fish Company. It was absolutely fabulous.
Rooms
On the surface the room looked nice. However, there were areas of opportunity in this category. The security lock on our door was broken and actually hanging on the door. Since we were only going to be at the hotel 1 night, we didn't want to push the issues.
The bed was really comfortable, but the pillows, although they were beautiful were very uncomfortable. That wasn't just my opinion, but it was my husband's as well. I woke up with a headache from sleeping on the pillow.
The bathroom was small with the vanity on the outside of the bathroom. The door to the bathroom appeared pretty worn as it was showing signs of wear on the bottom with the door cracking. Also, the shower curtain in the bathroom was the most wrinkled shower curtain I had ever seen in a hotel.
Conclusion
I would definitely come back to this hotel. It was clean and very customer service oriented. In addition, I was able to print out our boading passes for the our flight in the hotel's business area without there being a charge.

Dear gvldiva,

Thank you very much for taking the time to share your feedback regarding the Marriott Fort Lauderdale North with the TripAdvisor community. I am delighted that you were able to experience the award winning service Marriott Fort Lauderdale North is well known for. I am even more thrilled to read that you found our hotel extremely clean. I have shared your feedback regarding the door & lock with my Maintenance team and ensure you it has already been repaired. The shower curtain has been removed and replaced with a brand new one. As for the Pillows, the big one’s are decorative, most people set them aside at night just like at home. Gvldiva, thank you again for the feedback, I truly appreciate you helping us improve and look forward to seeing you again soon.

Kindest Regards,
Joel Darr, General Manager

We had the opportunity to stay at the Marriott North over Labor Day weekend. I know the area and expected that this would be a business type hotel would be dead on a holiday weekend and understaffed. The hotel was indeed quite slow, but service and attention by the staff by no means suffered. Jeffery, who was in charge of the lounge on our first night, was outstanding. He was pleasant to speak with and provided useful information on what to do and where to dine. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that the lounge would be open on Sunday night, again staffed by Jeffery, and enjoyed a very nice snack before theatre. Finally on Monday our request for a late check-out was met without hesitation and the front manager said that he was happy to help us out. I will be writing to the hotel to commend the service and attention given to us by the staff.

Dear FWFDAN,

Thank you very much for taking the time to recognize Jeffrey and the entire team at the Marriott North. I am ecstatic to hear that my team is performing at peak levels even when our occupancy is lower than normal. I am also happy to see that you were able to enjoy our leisure amenities and location during the holiday weekend. Many people do not realize how great of a value our hotel is on the quite weekends, you can really enjoy South Florida for a great value by staying just off the beach with us. I wish you safe and exciting future travels and thank you so much for choosing to stay at the Marriott Fort Lauderdale North.

Kindest Regards,

Joel Darr, General Manager

We stayed at the Marriott because our accommodations at the FL Ramada were so bad that the trip package company agreed to move us. We have never been welcomed so warmly and treated so well. Upon our arrival the desk receptionist, Alex, told us "as long as your are within these four walls, you will be treated well" - what an understatement! Our server at lunch, Luis, completely understood my dietary restrictions due to celiac sprue (no gluten) and was able to advise me as to what foods on the menu were safe for me. He also made substitutions, and then brought us carry-out boxes so that we could take some fresh fruit with us. We met the manager, Joel Darr, and were able to share our story and our gratitude for such lovely accommodations and service. He was professional, personable, and remembered us each time we passed him in the hotel. The dining room manager, Dookie, was equally welcomong and kind. Meal service each time was absolutely impeccabel. Our room was newly and beautifully decorated, spotless, comfortable, quiet. At first, we thought perhaps the hotel staff assumed we were celebrities, although we do not remotely resemble the first family, or any movie stars. However, it soon became clear that this is the Marriott standard. The Marriott family and this hotel especially are to be commended for such high standards and personal service. We wish we had the opportunity to stay longer in such a fine establishment. Thank you, Marriott! Gemma Hoskins and Paul Zins, Maryland

Terrific value and comfort...... a newly refurbished hotel. Very comfortable king bed with beautiful furnishings including a convienient business desk, reading chair & ottoman. Staff was extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating starting with the welcome and continuing through a cheerful safe travel upon departure.
Our business breakfast was successful due to the personal attention and efforts of Mookie, the charming restauraunt supervisor from Munich, and the ever-pleasing ways of Melania accommodating our every wish.
Can't miss with this combination. Enjoy your stay.

Check in was quick and easy. Room was neat and clean. The only small dislike was the exhaust fan ran constantly in the bathroom with no way to turn it off. It was a little loud so I had to close the bathroom door at night to seal in the sound. Beds and TV were comfortable and updated. Garage parking and wireless interest were free. Bar area in hotel was nice. Bartender was quick and efficient!

I stopped by the restaurant to check out the menu. Decided NOT to eat there. Prices were SKY HIGH for basic dishes. I choose to eat at any number of restaurants down the street or near the beach which were much more reasonably priced. In this economy, paying $27+ for a dish with chicken and rice is beyond wasteful. Hotel/Restaurant management: if you are reading this, get rid of the high-end dishes and put togther a more realisticly priced menu for vacationers and business people on a budget.

Dear scott60606,

I very much appreciate you taking time out of your day to share your feedback with the Trip Advisor community. I am thrilled to read that our service and cleanliness exceeded your expectations. Yes, my Food and Beverage team is reading this and take your feedback very seriously. I am sorry that you were not presented all of our menu options. We have many low cost, high value items on our all day menu. We have made a major effort to include a wide selection of items to meet the expectations of our diverse guests. Some our guests require a high quality dry aged Steak or the wonderful Red Fire Sea Scallops and some just want a quick salad or Cuban Sandwich. Either way, we are prepared to exceed any of our guest needs and expectations. I appreciate you choosing to stay with us at the Marriott Fort Lauderdale North and hope you try out the Blue Fire Grille on your next visit. I wish you safe and exciting travels.

Kindest Regards,

Joel Darr, General Manager
