A day of sun, sea & decent food

After 5 months of cold & snow it was time for some beach action. The hostel was literally 100 steps from the beach, perfect! By far I was the whitest person on that beach, so much so that people stared at me! As it was completely off season the main people there were either Caribbean/Hispanics or old retired white American. this latter group were the darkest people!

The weather was perfect. My last trip ...

... we saw brownstone houses and many churches too. We got to try some soul food at Sylvia’s. We had collard greens, candied yams (sweet potato) and corn bread. All absolutely delicious. Definitely a great way to get kids to eat vegies (and Stu for that matter…) It was during the tour that my body started to let me down. The body aches were coming in waves and I could barely walk. We decided to pick up a tub of African Shea Butter (only $3) after our tour guide suggested ...

... gave it a good review we decided to have dinner there. Unfortunately it was a lot further away than we anticipated and by the time we got to West and 17th street we decided to head back to the mall instead.

We passed an Epicure on the way which had a sensational cheese section and bought a piece of Maytag Blue (supposedly one of the best blues in the world), a soft goats cheese called Bermuda Triangle, crackers and a bottle of red. I threw in some shallots ...

Day 3 Miami, USA

... on board a speedboat which took us to the "homes of the stars" of which there are many. Some of the houses we saw included those belonging to the late Elizabeth Taylor, Gloria & Emilio Estefan, the late Edith Piaf (this is the smallest of the houses on the islands), Shakira and others. We also managed to see Fischer Island which is a holiday resort frequented by the likes of Tom Cruise, Jenifer Lopez and Oprah Winfrey. Not really our cup ...

    Loved my stay here. It was full of pre-cruisers but coped well with food and drink service.
    Very nice room, lovely pool area and a really contemporary feel about the whole public area.
    Some very posh boats too!

    Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina

    Great stay at the Mariott

    from

    Stayed here in January 2005 prior to our cruise. Got a good deal through price line for $77. Nice large rooms, great view of the Port. Nice hotel, right on marina and close to water taxi service. Hotel staff was great, gave us Mariott service for our priceline price which I appreciated. We lost our luggage for several hours. They quickly provided us with hygine products to get us buy. Also provided us transportation to the port and watched our luggage..when we finally got it for several hours. Due to the short length of stay we did not go to the restaruant or to the pool/spa. I would recommend this hotel. Good location by the water taxi which can get you anywhere you need to go in Lauderdale.

    Noisy, overpriced...

    from

    I stayed in this hotel for two nights in late December 2004. The reality of this hotel bears little resemblance to its pictures on the hotel's web site, so you can disregard the latter. Basically this is a decades-old building which has been cosmetically rehabbed but is still apparently saddled with its original and now very noisy physical plant. Let's begin with the location: A noisy road and bridge on one side, and a cascade of noise until late evening from the pool, recreation, jacuzzi and late-night bar area on the other side. Windows are not double-glazed, so you hear most of this. Then there are the room a/c units, which have no low setting and are so loud that they have to be turned off at night -- good luck with that if it's hot outside. Then there seems to be unexplainable (by the staff) noise from the building itself, such as equipment vibration. Combine all this with high Fort Lauderdale prices and average food, and you have a hotel which is way beneath the normal Marriott experience. Were it not for a well-managed gift shop, a Starbucks location in the lobby, and nice views from north-facing rooms, this hotel would be largely forgettable. It's in serious need of attention by the Marriott chain, or a substantial discount in prices to take account of the inferior experience it provides.

    Needs a renovation, bad choice, go somewhere else

    from

    The hotel needs a renovation very badly (as acknowledged by the front desk lady). Air conditioning makes a lot of noise (so does teh lamp!), cigarrete holes in the blanket (in a non smoking room), not very good smell. Cheap towels, mattress needs to be replaced. Worse than a Fairfield Inn where breakfast is included. Do not pay more than $100!!! The location is not good either. I had originally booked four nights but stayed only one.

    Loved it!

    from

    I loved the Marriott Marina. Especially the pool and jacuzzi area. The hotel was sold out but the pool area is hugh and never seemed crowded. It is very nice to sit in the hot tub at night. There is an outdoor bar a little ways from the pool were you can get sandwiches and eat outside. The rooms were very nice and clean and the views were awesome. You cannot go wrong. I am looking forward to staying here again before my cruise in several months.

    Great! (even if Hurricane caused evacuation)

    from

    We throughly enjoyed our stay at the Marriott Marina (Sep24-28). Their lobby/grounds are well taken care of. They have great poolside, intercoastal, city, and ocean views from their higher room balconies. Rooms are comfortable. We paid the higher room rate to stay on a concierge floor with access to the concierge lounge and the food was good there, although, the food was good at any of their restuarants. Front staff was very accomodating whenever I had a room problem and all their staff were friendly throughout the hotel. The Marriott Marina is also walking distance to markets, stores and the water taxi which will take you to various stops on the intercoastal.

    Excellent Choice

    from

    We just returned from a 4 day weekend at the Fort Lauderdale Marina Marriott, and had a wonderful weekend and experience at this hotel. We arrived at 11:00 am and given an early check-in with no problem. We received a great room overlooking the pool and marina on their Boat and Breakfast for Two promotion. The rooms were clean and well maintained and quiet. The staff were very accomodating and provided excellent service all around. The pool was clean and not overly crowded with kids. The hotel has a resort feel but much more quaint than a large mega-hotel/resort. You can get around by water taxi and the hotel also provides shuttle service to the beach all day long. Also within walking distance to other restaurants, Walgreens, and Publix so really no need to rent a car. We checked out other hotels in the area and glad we chose the Marriott Marina - great value. We'll definately be back next time we're in Fort Lauderdale!

    Perfect hotel for a pre-cruise stay

    from

    This is an EXCELLENT hotel to stay at before or after a cruise out of Port Everglades, especially if you are cruising on a Princess ship. It is directly across 17th from where the ships dock and if you get up early enough you can see them come into port in the morning.

    The room was in excellent condition, clean and comfortable. Really nice comforters on the beds. Good selection of "product" in the bath room. The ground of the hotel are beautiful. The pool is a nice size. I'd stay here again even if I wasn't going on a cruise. I got the hotel thru priceline, so I had an especially good rate, but even at the Marriot web site discount rate, I would still think this hotel was reasonably priced.

    Favorite Pre-cruise in Fort Lauderdale

    from

    We have stayed at other hotels in Fort Lauderdale, but we now stay only at the Marriott Marina. Great combination of outstanding views of waterway, port and yachts berthed at the hotel. Outdoor restaurant and pool area is a great afternoon gathering place for tourists, locals and yacht owners. There is a Waterbus stop on the corner of the property to take you shopping or to restaurants on the intercoastal. The hotel rooms are comfortable with port views available for cruise lovers and the dining room serves some outstanding dinners.

    What a pleasant surprise!

    from

    After a truly ghastly experience at a Lauderdale by the Sea Hotel, we checked in here. Room overlooked beautiful pool area. Nicely done with its own balcony. Excleent amenities and great gym. Was surprised because Marriott is not my favorite brand but this place sparkled. Nice staff too.

    Loved the Ft Lauderdale Marina Marriott

    from

    Each year my company travels to Ft. Lauderdale for business and one of the hotels we deal with is the Marina Marriott. The hotel is beautiful, the staff are friendly and courteous, the property itself is gorgeous. I loved seeing the yachts pull up to the slip right at the hotel. They have a fitness center with television, an arcade, laundry room, pool bar, large pool, hot tub, they even have muffins, tea and coffee in the lobby for sale in the morning in case youre in a hurry. I would highly recommend staying here. You will not regret it!
