I left the hotel on July 10th, bedroom 1205B, and unfortunately I left some clothes inside the closet. I called the hotel several times, went to the website ileftmystuff.com and nothing worked. I assume that there is a cleaning service in the hotel, and it is impossible that the person who cleaned the bedroom did not find anything. It is inacceptable the way the hotel treat its guests. Nobody tried to solve my problem. They just told me "go to the website ileftmystuff.com and wait for a feedback. I never had any feedback. We are a gold member, and we are sure that we will never go back to Marriott! If I could, I would give zero stars instead of one. Read less

had the worst possible terrifying experience staying at the Courtyard Marriott Fort Lauderdale. We were locked in our room unable to open the door at 6:30AM. the gentelman at the desk told me to calm down and the engineer would arrive at 7am. My daughter had a flight to catch! She was able to finally get out and then close the door. I then got stuck in my room and could not get out. The gentleman next door Rich West indicated that he had check in yesterday in my room and had the same problem so he was switched rooms. The engineer who came to help get me out said hew as surprised that anyone was put in the room as he came to rescue someone yesterday. A lock was not available so he not able to swamp the lock out during his shift. The lock was available this morning and he switched it out. The front desk assistant manager - was telling me that I was overreacting and getting locked in a room in the dark is not a big deal Read less

The hotel was solid for the price and time of year. A few issues with cleanliness. Older floor. Bad bath rags. Nonetheless, the check in/out staff and valet service associates were ALL AMAZING!!! Worth it for the price and location!!!

First the hotel is in a great location with access to the beach and restaurants. The overall service was questionable at best with the exception of the valets. They were outstanding and super friendly. Our room was a king suite with an immediate view of the public beach bathrooms. If you looked to the side, we could see a glimpse of the beach area. Our room was in need of some maintenance and repair. One light in the bathroom was burnt out. The drain/stopper was broke loose. The air vents had broken pieces and the thermostat varied the temperature in the room without being adjusted manually. The mini fridge door wouldn’t stay shut unless we put our suitcase in front of it to hold close. I reported the light and fridge issue twice and was told both times that someone would come fix it, but no one ever showed up. This resulted in the fridge icing over and not keeping our items cold. We was afraid to eat some of our leftovers due to the temp so that was money wasted due to the fridge not working correctly. Upon check in we was told that there was no housekeeping service available unless you stayed 7 or more nights. If we needed any supplies during our visit we would have to visit the front desk and request it from them. Towels, toilet paper, shampoo, etc. we’re available upon asking. As for the dirty towels and trash, we wasn’t given any instructions on what to do so they were left in our room until we checked out. I did see where some people was putting those things outside their doors so the halls were littered with used towels and trash constantly. It was gross to see. We stayed 4 nights and would’ve liked at least one cleaning due to the beach and sand which seemed to be everywhere. A precious hotel we stayed at this summer had housekeeping upon request and that was a great idea since you don’t need it everyday but you do need it when you stay multiple nights. I didn’t see a housekeeping adjustment on our bill for it not being received and requiring the guests to get everything they need on their own. One costly item was parking. I understand a charge for parking but $42 a night is a bit obscene. Also, you have to pay for any beach rentals as well. They have chairs and umbrellas just across the road from the hotel. It makes you believe they are complimentary for guests, but they are not. When you sit down, someone approaches you to let you know the costs associated with it. It is $25 for the umbrella and $18 for each chair. You can come a d go as you please and still keep the chairs until 5pm each day. However one of our days was cut short due to weather and there was no refund due to it. We didn’t explore any of the food options here, but we expected them to be high as well. Overall, we appreciated the location of this hotel, but was strongly disappointed in house keeping and guest services. I expected way more due to the price paid each night and believe we should have been compensated for lack of house keeping available. Read less
