That is the old Marriott Marina. Great grounds, great location, and I assume the rooms are still good. Ask for a harbor view and watch the ships sail out, and yours sail in.

For most of my history of precruisng in Fll, I have stayed on A1A, and have enjoyed this hotel,when it was the Marriott. Great central location,nice restaurants,and the Harbor Shops, across the street,with a Publix Market for last minute whatever. Good rates for sure.

The Hilton Marina Fort Lauderdale was renovated and the hotel is fantastic.
The interior is very upscale "Chic" and the rooms are beautiful with stylish baths that have sliding doors.

The Boward County Transit (BCT) has a stop out front, The Sun Trolley will also stop, just wave to the driver and they pull over at a safe zone, The WATER taxi has a stop in the rear dock of hotel and will take you to the Los Olas shopping/restaurant district .
