Easy access to beach and restaurants (a little bit of a walk - 10 minutes) - it is on the intercoastal so not quite facing the seashore. Room rates were reasonable. Only 3 hr meter parking till 11 pm and starts at 8 am and they are quite strict...

This is your regular Residence Inn (mini-kitchen, living/dining area, sleeping area). My suite over-looked the Intracoastal and had a nice balcony with table for 4. The hotel has a nice pool / deck area, but is also a short walk to the beach. Note that this hotel is and the north-end of the beach (closer to Lauderdale-by-the-Sea and the main...

For the price of an ocean view room fire one night at this place, you could spend a week at an awesome beach front resort, your room will have bathrobes!(hello!), an awesome breakfast buffet which pots this one to shame, full commentary toiletries, etc..a little over priced in my opinion..the staff are great, but..

Thank you for taking time to send us your review. We're sorry we did not exceed your expectations for your recent stay. We certainly feel we're priced according to the market, in fact, less than the large beachfront resorts, who also charge a resort fee. We truly hope you give us another opportunity to showcase what a true Marriott hotel...

Stayed here for four days and I couldn't imagine having better accommodations. I'm so glad I bypassed a few of the nit-picky reviews and decided to book here.

This place was such a surprise and such a sensory delight that we will return as often as we can! All of Fort Lauderdale is at your feet, and the water taxi makes Las Olas, Hollywood, and other areas just a sweet ride away.

My 'go to' hotel is Il Lugano, now a Marriott Residence Inn, right on the Intracoastal north of Oakland Park Blvd. Convenient to the beach, to restaurants, good walking and running, etc. A very nice (and never busy) heated lap swimming pool. A terrific in-house bar and restaurant, presided over by Mark (the head chef) and Kristina (the head bartender)....
