Tucked between the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean in Fort Lauderdale, the Courtyard by Marriott combines the beauty of the Florida countryside with the city's pulsing energy. 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.

Decent time

Mariott Courtyard in Ft. Lauderdale was definitely worth the time and money. The room was spacious, clean, and it's centrally located. The bat at the swimming pool was a lot of fun!

fantastic family getaway

Amazing location ocean front in Las Olas Fort Lauderdale! Only problem is parking... Be prepared to pay $30 for it at the hotel or get there early to use the adjacent public parking at $15-overnight allowed (same side as the hotel). Enjoy

Great View! Easy to find from the airport!

This hotel is on A1A and a short drive from FLL Airport. The beach is just across the street and easy to access. Food choices are within walking distance. Parking is a bit expensive at $29.00 a night "plus tips". The 24 hour beach parking is not as available as one might think. There is free coffee in the morning and a small restraunt above the lobby. There was some "light" construction going on one of the days that we stayed though it did not bother us. The hotel pool is nice and convenient.

Great Location

The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean and beds were very comfortable. It was the 4th of July weekend and this hotel is a great place to watch the fireworks on Fort Lauderdale Beach. However, they were throwing a 4th celebration at the pool and tiki bar and there was supposed to be live music and a cook-out from 1-8pm. The food didn't go on the grill till about 5pm and the live music was nonexistent. Other than that we were very happy.

Check your bill before you leave a tip. Most places charged a 15-20% gratuity without telling us. And there was a law passed that made that illegal so I'm not sure how they get away with it.

Nice hotel

Hotel itself was nice, wish it would have had a microwave. We had leftovers that we could refrigerate, but no microwave. We also were surprised that the cost to park was 29.99 daily. It would have been cheaper to park else where. I was there on business and my wife for the beach. We only went out one night, but we had to that amount for every night. That is too much. I would have rather paid for a more expensive room and not so much for parking. The last thing that made the stay less than desirable was it was the week to test their alarm system. This was a problem, even a heads up in advance could have helped us plan better, not finding out until we got there was inconvenient. They had a letter of apology that was nice; however if you are there on business or R & R, you expect peace. Things we did like were the friendly housekeeping staff, they were wonderful, polite and not loud at all. We also liked that our hotel was close to everything, we didn't need transportation except to and from the airport. When we book again there will be more details needed.

You do not need to rent a car. There are so many places close by ex: shopping, dining, beach, museums. Plus you pay too much to park at the hotel.

A little be honesty would make this hotel a wonderful experience.

I was left stuck at the airport, I have to call the hotel for a shuttle more than 4 times... and they always made me wait for at least 20 minutes. I have no problem with myself, but I was with my two sons and they got very upset as well. The day I left the hotel.. I forgot my apple computer battery charger. I call the "lost and found" at the hotel 4 times. Only the machine respond as you can verify, so I left messages stating I would like to recover the device, I am willing to pay for the shipping expenses..they never responded. I guess they love to keep with whatever people forget in the room.. A seminar about honesty will suit them very well.

We didn't expect a lot when we arrived; we anticipated a regular hotel by the beach with sand all about but surprisingly, it was a very clean facility with great hospitality.

Don't bring a car

I had a rental car but did not know there was know parking at the hotel. The only options were Valet for $30 a day or a city lot that was close to the hotel for $15 a day. This kinda spoiled my whole experience with the hotel. It is a very nice location with the beach and shops and restaurants all around but if you plan to be driving I'd find another place.

Don't go into the convenience stores right around the corner, there's a CVS about 2 blocks up the street that's much cheaper for essentials.
