I had a great sleep considering I had a belly full of food on board.
Got myself organised, said my goodbyes to my host Nelson and headed to the bus stop to catch the first of 3 buses required to get me to my next destination, Fort Lauderdale.
First bus picked me up just after I arrived and successfully delivered me to Aventura Mall. On the way there, north of South Beach, I saw some fantastic condo's and hotels, with ...

The Black Eyed Peas song 'good night' came on and we got all 'I love you, we have had an amazing time together' however Lauren took it to the next level and started crying! Bless her cottons. This club was the other end of the beach so we caught a cab back and got our last slice of drunken pizza before hitting the sack. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beach Place Towers Fort Lauderdale
I loved Beach Place Towers and the location facing the beach or the Intracoastal Waterway. Spectacular! Although free parking is available for guests, you really don't need a car at this location for a week's stay - there are dozens of nearby restaurants, from hamburgers to fine dining, all within a 5 min walk.
First the positives: rooms were very nice with plenty of space for a family of 5. Had 2 balconies overlooking the intercoastal. Proximity to the beach was good, however, had to take the elevator down to the bottom floor of the mall in which the smell of the hotel garbage was unbearable. We wound up getting off on the 2nd floor and going down the stairs. The biggest issues: The pool is small for this size hotel. Each morning it was a race to get downstairs to put towels on chairs so you have a place to sit during the day. The pool is in the shade by 3:00 - which may be ok, but it turned pretty cool. The pool deck gets so crowded, you are sunning within 6 inches of complete strangers. The elevators are terrible - from 10am to 2pm you will have to wait 10 - 15 minutes to get downstairs. The parking for the hotel is on the 4th and 5th floors of the garage - which takes you 10 minutes to drive in. I have stayed in many Marriotts and this was proabably one of the worst.
I think this hotel is excellent. Staff is very very friendly. Needs to be more Indian restaunts in area. very very good
Great place with a great pool, and hot tubs, on the lobby level, with a view of the ocean. We had a two bedrom, two bathroom, two balcony, full kitchen, washer and dryer, living room, dining room, foyer, double size jaccuzi bathtub in one of the bedrooms. This was a great place "room" wise. Usually $400+ a night, we got a deal for $109 a night. THe staff was efficient, not as friendly as I am used too or accomodating. The store in the hotel is quite substandard for Marriott, they do have a deli, and starbucks coffee, as well as pizza hut, but these are mostly a staff member of the hotel store preparing these things. The Beach Place, which is the three levels below the hotel, has many bars, including HOOTERS, FAT TUESDAY,and a few others, just to give you an idea of the folks arounds the area at night. Stay far away from the Irish Bar, had a very bad incident with the service staff there. I would stay at this hotel again if I got the deal I got again. Otherwise the Marriott Harbour Beach is the hotel for me, much nicer, quieter, private beach, pools, bars, very large SPA with some of the best therapists I have ever had. If you cannot get a GREAT deal at the BEACH PLACE, pay the extra and go to the Harbour Beach!
I have not yet stayed at the location yet (I will be soon, a family member booked it)
I spent a week at Beach Place Towers with my husband two grown children. We had a wonderful time. The accomadations were spectacular.
My family stayed in a rwo-bedroom suite. The room was really excellent.
Beachplace good but not particularly for young families
Fort Lauderdale is a great place to stay and Beachplace towers is in a great location and is a great place. However it is not particularly famillies with young children as the games room is a lot smaller than other Marriott resorts and there is also less games for younger children. These facilities also close early 3 times a week which isn't alwasys usefulThe pool is nice but also a little small. The service however and quality of the room is impeccable.
We have a 6-year old and stayed at Beach Place Towers for the first time this past week for 4 days, 3 nights. We had a 1 bedroom King room with queen sleeper sofa, balcony, microwave, fridge & kitchen supplies. Great place to stay. Easy access to beach, just downstairs and across the street. Pool is heated and great as well, w/2 jacuzzis. Nice workout room and steamroom. Very clean facility with stunning views from pool deck on the 6th floor. They have a kids club with planned activities and a play area, though not enough kids were there to merit having the Friday night out. You can rent boogie boards, chairs & umbrellas for $5 a day from the hotel. They have a little deli/mini grocery on the Lobby level with (overpriced) to go snacks & microwavable foods, and wine & beer; also fresh salads, pizza, sandwiches, even Starbucks coffee.Downstairs, an open air mall of 3 stories of shops and restaurants, which we didn't use at all: cafes, Hooters, etc. and the requisite T-shirt & bikini shops. Also some interesting vendors -- temporary tattoo art, caricature artist, shell necklaces, sarongs. A little bit too teen-oriented on Saturday night, basically a pickup/drinking scene with kids milling about, but we were just passing through it anyway.Tip: if you have kids, stay on the side facing the intracoastal waterway, not the beach. More interesting -- you cans see boats going by; and less noisy as it's not on the club side where music blasts at night. Nice balcony and great views of downtown Ft. Laud at night.Only downside: elevators are SLOW due to the fact there's no service elevator. The hotel staff (housekeeping, maintenance) all shuttle their large carts on the 4 elevators for guests, leaving less room and meaning more floor stops. Especially at check-in and check-out times, you can spend a LONG time waiting. Each time I went up to the room from the beach meant a half-hour trip, including walking across the street & back, and you'd better have your room key handy to get on the elbut it takes a while to drive up there. Only 1 ice machine, inside the guest laundry room on lobby level.Also, the water taxi is a fun way to travel but very SLOW and may involve transfers; still easier than driving to Las Olas or the Riverwalk, esp. if you're having a few drinks. If you want good food, avoid the restaurants on the main drag, go to Las Olas. If you want to have a few drinks and people watch its fine.There were a couple derelicts on the beach (same ones each day) and if you're conservative/ very family oriented and have kids, you might want to know that Friday & Saturday the beach was full of tatooed (who under 25 isn't anymore?) drinkers and young women in thongs. We might drive to a more family oriented beach next time. But there were other kids there for ours to play with.Also, bring your own pillows unless you like hard foam ones.Overall though it was a great stay.
Besides excellent service and the most wonderful staff, the rooms are very spacious and well mantained by the housekeeping staff. The cleanliness of the rooms and public areas are very impeccable. The views from either side of the hotel are breathtaking. Having the pool area to the hotel 4 floors up makes dipping in the hot tubs (2 of them) a perfect place to relax while looking out at the ocean. The shops and kiosks have an exotic flare to them and have very friendly and helpful service people. I love when they have small bands playing in the courtyard area. Some tips on great views and great picture taking is as follows.1) you must be a guest of Marriott to go up the elevator. Go up to the 19th floor and in the middle of the hotel is a balcony room with views of the shops and beachs below.2) Go to the fire exits, again on the 19th floor and be sure to prop the door open or you will be locked out. (that happened to us had to walk 19 floors plus the 3 floors of the mall to the street to get back up.) With that view you can see all the way down the beach.Well as you can see I can't say enough about the hotel, their staff and the shops. I hope if you go you will enjoy it as much as our family has.
