The Marriott Harbor Hotel Fort Lauderdale is an upscale seaside hotel where guests can be as active or laidback as they wish. Try some traditional Florida fly-fishing, pound the sand playing beach volleyball, or send the kids off for a surfing lesson at the Surf Club wave simulator. Or relax and treat yourself to a seashell massage at the spa (a signature treatment at Marriott Harbor). A warm atmosphere is maintained by the candlelit lobby and the wood-clad bar at 3030 Ocean Restaurant, where ocean coral decorates the tables, and guests can savor local Florida crab and jumbo shrimp.

Neighborhood
The Marriott Harbor hotel is only a short ride from Fort Lauderdale Airport (FLL), but still has its own private, quarter-mile beach. Less than two miles from Port Everglades, the hotel is handy for a pre- or post-cruise stay, and within easy reach of both the Las Olas Boulevard stores and the Sawgrass Mills Mall. Children are sure to enjoy the Museum of Discovery and Science in the nearby Riverwalk area, and the Bonnet House and Gardens—only two miles away—is a sprawling Florida estate full of fascinating history.
Hints and tips
Ask for a room on the 7th floor (or above) for prime Atlantic views from the window.

In Fort Lauderdale with the family? For a truly Floridian experience, take the 'Downbound' water taxi to Las Olas, hop on and off at shops and restaurants, and save little legs from fatigue along the way.

Good but expensive parking, restaurants and internet service

The hotel is very large with comfortable rooms and luxury lounges. More suitable for business than for vacation. Very expensive parking, restaurants and internet service.

15 year anniversary…

We had such a relaxing time. It was like a honeymoon. We loved every minute, the service was outstanding, and the amenities were like if we went to a paradise resort. We will come again in a heartbeat, hope it is soon.

Parking Rate

The hotel was great than they told me there was a $25 fee to park in the garage self parking. I think you need to mention this when you reserve a room at this hotel.

A place to stay in Ft. Laud

Nice resort with good amenities. We had a city view room which gives great night views. The oversized balcony was great. We will consider returning. Location is ideal for vacationers.

Good for a resort getaway

The hotel has all of the amenities one would need on the premises - gym, pool, beach chairs, restaurants etc. It is also very clean and has good value. The staff is also very nice and attentive. The one downside, which did cast a slight damper on the weekend was the crowd. The hotel was insanely packed to the point where we had to wait in line to get onto the elevators to go to our room and when trying to get to the lobby, we often had to let 1 or 2 elevators pass because they were already packed with people. I understand I went on a holiday weekend (Memorial Day) and there were two weddings going on, but it did not seem that the elevators were functioning efficiently. All in all, I would definitely go back because it is one of the few hotels actually on the beach (rather than having to cross the street) and it is clean and nice but I would definitely avoid on a holiday weekend - or call ahead to see what is going on/how crowded it is.

Dream Vacation

The Staff was so helpful and friendly! The grounds are beautiful and it is located in a wonderful part of the city for dining, shopping or exploring Ft. Lauderdale. The spa was closed for two of my three days, but they bent over backwards to set up an appointment at the Ritz, including transportation. I also kindly requested free wi-fi since I was a Marriot member and they comped me on that as well. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The TV had funny sound but I didn't care about TV.I'm sure they would have fixed it if I had cared. I rented a cabana on the beach with chaise pads and there was always someone popping up to ask if I needed anything. I was chatting with a staff member telling them about my wonderful adventure in the Everglades ( I highly recommend Speedy's airboat tours in Everglade's City and a visit to Clyde Butcher's gallery- he is the Ansel Adams of the Everglades)) and they asked if I would like free use of a poolside bungalow for my last day. What luxury! Shade or sun, towel, a bed with a canopy and the gorgeous 86degree pool to swim in.
