The hotel

Chose Courtyard since Conference facility was full. Opinion is that Courtyard was overpriced. Also, asked for King and got 2 Queen. Room was OK but not "superb" as it should have been for price. Housekeeping piled used linens, etc, in hallway and it was almost impossible to get to elevator (fire hazard as well as very inconsiderate). Pool bar… Read more
Chose Courtyard since Conference facility was full. Opinion is that Courtyard was overpriced. Also, asked for King and got 2 Queen. Room was OK but not "superb" as it should have been for price. Housekeeping piled used linens, etc, in hallway and it was almost impossible to get to elevator (fire hazard as well as very inconsiderate). Pool bar service was almost non-existent (not crowded) and, again, overpriced for very "watery" drinks. Would not recommend this Courtyard. Bright spot was service/attitude of Valet parking personnel - they were excellent. Read less

We choose to stay here on the beach after our cruise. Hotel is right across the road from Fort Lauderdale beach. Great beach access. Our room had a beach view as well as a view to the pool area. Room large enough for 4 of us. We were worried about getting into room early, but that was no problem. We got into a room but they would have held our… Read more

Room large enough for 4 of us. We were worried about getting into room early, but that was no problem. We got into a room but they would have held our luggage if a room wasn't available yet and we could have gone tot he beach. All staff we encountered were friendly and very helpful. Read less

This is a good hotel but it is understaffed. The hardest working person on the staff is the lady washing and putting out the towels at the pool. The rest of the crew kind of just stand around with no real work ethic.The property is updated well but needs some deep cleaning and restoration. You definitely need more tan one bar man poolside.

This is a good hotel but it is understaffed. The hardest working person on the staff is the lady washing and putting out the towels at the pool. The rest of the crew kind of just stand around with no real work ethic.The property is updated well but needs some deep cleaning and restoration. You definitely need more tan one bar man poolside. Front desk staff is clueless. I liked our room but the drawers would not stay shut. The view of the ocean was beautiful. This property could use better management and it could become a great property. The two people who helped us most was Recky C. Dunes and Zerodia Sutton and also the pool bar man who was busier than a one armed paper hanger but stayed cool and gave great service I am sorry I didn’t get his name. I feel that we paid to much for this property and service not a good value for the money. Read less

I had to wait a little while before my room was ready so I was upgraded to a unior sweet. I had no problem with the wait becuase I wa hungry and I went to one of the nearby eateries and before I was done my room was ready. The location is great and there are so many things within walking distance. The Valet staff were great. The hotel room was nice and clean and my view of the beach was amazing. I would recomend this hotel to anyone staying in Ft. Lauderdale. Read less
