Fort Lauderdale hotel between the Atlantic and Intracoastal Waterway

Next to posh Los Olas Boulevard and tucked between the Atlantic Ocean and Intracoastal Waterway, the Courtyard by Marriott Fort Lauderdale Beach satisfies both leisure and business travelers. The 12-floor, 261-room hotel merges tropical and modern design elements in rooms, while an oceanfront pool and tiki bar prime guests for relaxation.  Even from the fitness center, which is enclosed by floor-to-ceiling windows, patrons can fall into full resort mode.

Highlights
  • Intimate Fort Lauderdale Beach hotel next to Las Olas Boulevard
  • Breathtaking views of the ocean and Intracoastal Waterway from the oceanfront pool and floor-to-ceiling windows
  • Blue Water Restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Business center with Internet access and printers
Rooms

Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the best asset in the rooms at the Courtyard by Marriott Fort Lauderdale Beach: views of the Intracoastal Waterway and ocean. A cheerful palette of limes, reds, blues and yellows enhances the airy feel of the space, which includes free Wi-Fi, ergonomic chair and work chair, plus marble bathrooms and pillow-top mattresses.

Dining

Blue Water Restaurant, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, is tailor-made for business lunches and upscale casual dining, while Seabreeze Poolside Bar provides the best tables in the house overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Recreation

An ample sundeck lined with patio tables and cabanas gives way to the outdoor pool, which also boasts its own bar. Guests at the Courtyard by Marriott Fort Lauderdale Beach zap away stress in the glassed-in fitness center equipped with elliptical machines, treadmills, exercise balls and weights.

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.

Be aware of the henna tattoo deals, they specify a price in the cart and then they charge you with extra 10 dollars for the "Artistic Work"

Good experience

The experience was very good, staff very kind and rooms very clean, I'd say perfectly. Location was good, I suggest they should have umbrellas and chairs on the beach for guests because there is a guy renting them at $20.00 the umbrella and $12.00 each chair, besides that guy is always in bad mood and no he has not customer service at all, he claim the money after people get seat otherwise have to leave. when we were there guests were complaining about this. As a summary the only unpleasant experience was that issue, the hotel should remove him from the area in front of the hotel, thanks

I really enjoyed this hotel

It was at a perfect location, beautiful view of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Only downside is you pay for parking, double for valet. Not cheap parking. Also the pool is a bit small but with the ocean right there, it didn't matter. Breakfast buffet was priced a bit much for a normal offering. But loved the location and cleanliness of the hotel. Very nice.
