Default Ft. Lauderdale

Has anyone stayed at the Marriott North in Fort Lauderdale? Or would someone know if that section of the city is safe and ok?

My daughter and I stayed there post-cruise last March. It is a a fairly nice hotel, appears to be recently rennovated. The only problem is that it is in a fairly industrial area; there are no restaurants or shopping within easy walking distance. There is a small cafe on site. We took a taxi downtown to the Riverfront area for a very reasonable fee. There are a lot of nice shops and restaurants and taxi's are easy to find down there. As in any large metro area, I usually don't venture out alone after dark. We felt very safe within our hotel though. For a really nice tour, hop the water taxi at the riverfront and take a tour of Ft. Lauderdale's waterways.

I have stayed there several times. It is located just off I95 and in a nice area, commercial. Lots of shops and restuarants nearby. Hotel in fine, not the top of the line, but nice. It is not as close to the airport as some others if that matters to you, maybe about 10 miles away.

PS Just read the post from Chris, Did you stay at the Marriott Marina instead of the Marriott North? The Marriott north is not on the water.
