“Excellent stay”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

We arrived after midnight and was greeted by the most friendly front desk person. She arranged it so my group of 8 family members had two rooms next to each other and couldn't have been more congenial. The rooms were perfect. And the breakfast the next morning was wonderful. I would definitely choose this hotel again if staying in the Ft. Lauderdale area.

Noticed that extreme dust deposits and other debris were on the ceiling after being there for a couple of nights. The Manager did not seem too concerned, the housekeeper was surprised to see the dust and the centipede like critter I caught crawling through the room. They cleaned and sprayed for insects. Left the next day with what felt like the beginning of a sore throat, went away after home for a day. So, it was either the dust or the insecticide that bothered me.

The food at breakfast is generic Marriott morning food, no frills, no extra's. Have seen the same food for the last three years of staying at residence inns.

The evening fare was even more scarce, and basic. Not one of their better establishments, actually stayed the next week at a Marriott Courtyard to skip the meals and reduce the price.

Room Tip: Check them top to bottom before settling in.

Green Features: Who cares. They have the mercury containing CFL's from China in every fixture, they implore you to hang your towel and not have it laundered, etc. It is that ball of fire in the sky that controls all of the Earth's weather, nothing more nothing less.

The location is great, close to a mall, minutes from the beach and Sawgrass Mills outlet mall. Room was large, comfortable and exceptionally clean. The most impressive feature of this hotel is it's housekeeping staff- they are the most friendly, helpful, polite , people in the hotel. " It's my pleasure" is their catch phrase and they really mean it. The breakfast buffet is delicious with both healthy and decadent options and the breakfast area is large and comfortable and everything is kept clean and stocked. Great pool. I will definitely stay here again.

We stayed here last night. Not familiar with the area, however the hotel sits back from the road and is actually very quiet. Close to Westfield Mall. I was promptly greeted in the lobby and given an upgrade to a one bedroom suite. The property is one of the older Residence Inns, however very well maintained and clean. After we went to,the room, a young man knocked at our door and gave us a plate of warm fresh baked cookies and two bottled waters and told us we were the 'guest of the day'! I've never had such great treatment from any Marriott property, even when we've stayed at Ritz Carlton's! At breakfast the next morning, we were approached by three staff who asked if we needed anything! I hope the management of this property wins some kind of award, because their staff is incredible!

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the courtyard

My wife and I love staying at Residence Inn properties and this one definitely didnt let us down.
The price is very decent for South Florida, the amenities and size of the rooms are fantastic, and the staff was very welcoming.
This is a very safe area, from what I've observed, with a macaroni grill seconds fom the hotel, and a major mall a minute away.
Additionally the hotel's proximity to downtown Fort Lauderdale, the beaches, Sawgrass Mills, and Seminole Hard Rock means theres plenty of places to see nearby. Further out are Miami to the south (only 30 mins away) and Palm beach to the north (45 mins away)
Overall this a highly recommended place to stay.

Not a fan of the smell or the manager who was very friendly with my spouse (when I wasn't present). Also, it would be nice if someone could get a handle on the noise and chaos in the hallways due to unruly guests and children.

Stayed here for 4 nights while on vacation in South Florida. I chose this hotel because it was the cheapest in the area and I was able to use a category 1-4 free night certificate. The hotel is in a good location, fairly close to I-595 but is quite a distance from the beach. Check in was welcoming and pleasant and I received a thoughtful welcome gift as a Silver Elite Member, where this hotel fails is in its facilities, the hallways have a distinct smell and the rooms are not much better. The beds and pillows were also well worn and in need of replacement. Another issue was the dreadful internet speed at the business center. I was going to two Marlins games and needed to print parking passes, a process that normally takes less than 5 minutes took 15+ due to the speed of the connection and a printer issue which I had to assist the staff member with. The hotel does offer free breakfast but it is mediocre at best. I would recommend this hotel for a short stay over such as before/after a cruise but the facilities are not comfortable enough for the long term stays Residence Inn's are meant for.
