Dine at Bubba Gump Shrimp Company and the Blue Water Restaurant for some classic Florida sea fare - after you've had your fill, lounge at the Seabreeze Poolside Bar, or head back up to your room to survey the waterways of 'America's Venice'.

Neighborhood
Located on Seabreeze Boulevard, Marriott Courtyard Hotel Fort Lauderdale is built in exactly the right spot to allow you to benefit from your stay in 'the yachting capital of the world', putting you next to the annual boat show in October, as well as Fort Lauderdale Beach and its aquarium, and the harbor of Port Everglades. Heritage sites are a short walk away and include the Museum of Discovery and Science, and the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.

Hints and tips
Try to get a room on the west side for Atlantic views that will leave you glued to your window. Though many focal points are walkable, you could save some energy and use the weekend trolley service that runs nearby or catch the Number 40 bus.

Lackluster Service and Experience

Location of hotel is great and room is clean - if that's literally all you care about, then this place is great. If you're looking for good customer service and a great experience for your money - this is not the place. We were not made aware there would be hotel construction right below our room and next to the pool so not only did it wake us up early every morning, but it didn't allow for a relaxing time by the pool. Service elevators were broken so there were long waits for elevators everyday as they were constantly being occupied by hotel staff (maids, etc). One of the bartenders at the hotel tiki bar was extremely rude to us to the point where we decided to say something to the front desk (I can promise you, that is something we don't normally do as we understand things happen every now and then). The front desk took our information down and left it as though they were looking into the situation - we never heard from them again and when we went to check out they said they didn't even have any complaints on file so the employee we spoke to obviously didn't take us very seriously. Realistically on the grand scheme of things, all these things were very small but it is just dissapointing when you put hard earned money into one vacation a year and receive an experience like this.

Satisfied our needs

Four-star rating mostly due to the location - walk out elevator past fitness center to the hotel pool and outdoor bar, and the beach is right down the steps. Rooms were nice - nothing terrible, but nothing super ritzy either. If you go, ask for a room on a high floor (for the view) and specifically avoid rooms with a "connector door" - whatever they're called (we were woken up by our amorous neighbors at 1am before switching to a better, quieter room on a higher floor the second night). Hotel pool is clean, bright, and warm. Poolside piña coladas charged to the room hit the spot, too, even if they're a bit expensive.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Check out Coconuts across from the hotel on the bay side for half-price appetizers during happy hour. I liked their conch fritters and raw oysters and clams most. No personal/financial interest - just liked it. And booze/snacks at 7-Eleven just up the street.

The best location

Was the most reasonable priced hotel actually on the beach and I couldn't be more happy with the expierence. Across the street from the beach and on the strip with all the resturants. Room was nice with a separate room for the bed with floor to ceiling window which can close off from the living room. They are all like that. Can't say enough about this being solid choice.

perfect choice for beach lovers

This hotel is really the best possible choice if you want to spend a few days close to the beach and the ocean. The rooms are large, with beautiful views, very clean and comfortable. Staff is kind and helpful. The only (minor) downsides: very slow elevator(s), not great breakfast (plus it wasn't even included in the deal I've got), the pool is rather small and not lap-friendly, and check out time is 11am (noon if you ask especially for it) and this may be problematic if your flight is later in the afternoon or evening. Also, check in time is very late (4pm). But all in all, I had a great experience and I would totally recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a fun weekend in Fort Lauderdale!!

Location location location

Great location, steps to the beach, the marina, and the international swimming hall of fame. Several restraints within walking distance along the beach. Unfortunately I ended up getting a room on a lower floor with a marina view (lots of beautiful yachts)not bad but, I would definitely recommend an upper floor on the ocean side. Room was clean and fixtures were typical Marriott quality. FYI parking is pricy at $29 a day

nice enough

Stayed here for 3 nights in February 2014. Room was pretty clean, as long as you didn't look in the corners. Mattresses were not super-comfortable, and appeared to be new but low quality. Other complaint: it was loud. I was near an elevator, and had a door between me and another room. I could overhear entire conversations and coming and going at all hours. Good thing I always pack ear plugs. Fitness facility was comfortable, well-equipped, and operational. Staff was great - friendly and helpful, though I didn't ever put them to the test.

Very clean nice location

Four nights with teens and friends. Hotel was very clean and was right across from beach. Could walk to bars and restaurants.All are very expensive.Hotel bar way to expensive for cans of beer.Staff was very friendly.Hotel would be great for a one or two night stay but not enough to do if spending more time there.
