... to our anxiety was the predictable tension of entering new territory in waning light. It was a shame to enter under such circumstances because the entrance into Key Biscayne is stunning and deserving of attention. You can see the skyline of Coconut Grove and Miami. You go past a light house and some stilt houses in the middle of the bay. (First Mate later learned the stilt houses were old, abandoned fishing and vacation homes donated to the state. They were lovely and in spite ...
... organized and spacious. The room is a study of soft blues and tans, with plenty of windows. We do the spa tour, where we learn about the various classes and various treatments. The spa is lovely, spanning three corridors. Since it’s on Deck 9, all the rooms open to the sea. It is light and bright, filled with sunlight streaming in from the floor to ceiling windows in the treatment and changing rooms, as well as the bubble pool and ...
... that was a cross between Medieval Times and a Dog Park. There were lots of dogs, some German Shepherds but no Sam. Also, Mike Hyle was there. Nothing really happened, but I was there. HA! Anyone want to interpret that for me? Today we are packing up. Bags need to be in the hallway at 10:30 pm. I think they're going to confiscate our robes soon, boohoo. In the morning we need to be out of our rooms at 8 am, and off the ship by 9 ...

After dinner, we made a quick trip to the casino, each of us losing about $20. Ron also tried to win an iPad + $500 from a casino machine kind of like those stuff animal claw machines. He was not successful. It was around 8:30 p.m. but we were tired so back to the cabin and an early turn in.
... I had a look at the tours that the boat offers for tomorrow and most of them are too expensive so I think we will go ashore for lunch, stroll around and then come back earlier as we have the musical "Chicago" at 7pm.
There is so much to do on board. Just before lunch we took a stroll to the back of the ship and the place is heaven for me. There is an outdoor basketball court, mini-golf, zip-line and two ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Marriott's BeachPlace Towers Fort Lauderdale
Stayed at Beachplace Towers recently and it was the worst hotel experience of my life. Noise from music in clubs downstairs was intolerable all through the night. What are the people at Marriott thinking about by putting a resort above something like this and expecting its CUSTOMERS to sleep. I think the board members from Marriott should stay here one night and get an idea of what its CUSTOMERS are being put through. I can assure you that none of them would put up with this and would move out immediately.Unless you are either under 21 years of age or like to party until 5am every night, don't bother wasting your money at this place.
Reserved an oceanfront room in advance, arrived to find an oceanfront room facing a worksite for a new resort complete with workmen and a crane. We were told the hammering would continue 7 days a week from morning 'til night! Not what we excpected at all! Very disappointing for a Marriot. We would have appreciated being told of this construction before spending so much money.
.We booked this hotel as a post-cruise one night stay. Bad choice. The resort itself is lovely, but we were not there long enough to take full advantage of amenities. Having just come off a wonderful, pampering cruise ship, we were perhaps a little too critical, but here's what we had problems with: Accessibility. This hotel sits across the beach, but with a very busy shopping plaza in front of it.The taxi driver who dropped us off at the hotel, left us in front of this plaza saying the main entrance to the hotel is through a parking garage in the rear, and he could not go in fee-free. It was quite an ordeal dragging our luggage and 6 year old through this plaza, up public elevators, through the garage, to a very unwelcoming entrance, up more elevators, finally to the hotel lobby. We blamed the taxi driver for this fiasco, but really, shouldn't a high-end hotel have a better arrangement for arriving guest? We encountered the same problem in reverse the next morning, when we could not get a taxi to come in to the garage (main entance) to pick us up. The front desk staff assured us a taxi would come, but 40 minutes later, waiting in this vile location none came. We had to drag everything back out to the front of the plaza and hail one the the many cabs on the main road down. The other big problem with this place is the noise. While the loud music heard in the plaza is kind of fun to listen to sitting mid-afternoon on the villa's patio, it is not so great at three in the morning. With a bar named "Howl at the Moon" directly in front of the hotel, you can imagine what that was like . This hotel is ideal for spring breakers only. Families beware.
I did my homework ahead of time, and decided to stay at the Marriott Beach Place Towers in Fort Lauderdale. There are some good things about this hotel, but there are some things that I felt unacceptable in a hotel costing upwards of $250 per night.
Lovely Family Vacation
My family and I had a wonderful stay at the BeachPlace Towers! It was clean and very relaxing. As a matter of fact, I just referred a couple of families to make reservations.....and they are for April 2004. GREAT CHOICE! I can't wait to go back.
This place has it all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great location, terrific staff, nice rooms with fridge, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, plates and silverware, nice workout area and pool.
This was a great Florida getaway. It isn't the Ritz, but for the price it is just terrific. It ajoins a mall with nice retaurants (Maxs is just great), across the street from the beach and taxi stand. It doesn't have a sitdown restauant but does have a "Marketplace" with Starbucks, Pizza Hut, Deli and bagels, fruit, chips etc. We will be back soon!!!!!!!!!!
I am so glad to have found Marriott Beachplace Towers and will never stay anywhere else in Fort Lauderdale now. Everything is just an elevator ride away - shops for food and clothing, restaurants, bars, the pool, the beach, and terrific nightlife up and down the street.
Great location, great service
We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa at the BeachPlace Tower and were very impressed. The hotel is located in a great location; right across from a beautiful stretch of beach and right in the middle of all the "action". The 2 bedroom unit is very spacious, nicely furnished, and comfortable. Some rooms face the Atlantic, others face the Intracoastal Waterway. We had a room facing the Atlantic with fantastic views. The staff was very professional, friendly, and attentive, from front desk personnel to housekeeping. We did not have any problem with parking. We would definitely stay here again.
Great hotel. The rooms were amazing. We stayed in a two bedroom suite, that fit 8 people pretty comfortably. The parking could have been better but I didn't find it to be much of a problem. The mall at the bottom of the hotel had mostly everything that we wanted so we didn't need to drive anywhere. It was so nice having those shops and restaurants and bars and clubs right dowstairs. The noise from the clubs was not even noticible at night. This hotel's location right next to the beach and on top of a mall, combined with the quality of the rooms and service made it one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. It helps that you can get pizza delivered to your room til 4 in the morning too.
Beautiful property-bad parking
I recently stayed at the Beachplace towers in a one bedroom villa and it was beautiful. The room was clean and the property was well-kept- however the parking situation was ridiculous. If you are a guest of the hotel you MUST park on the 4th or 5th level of the parking garage(the only way in and out of the hotel-if you have a car without being charged for parking) and there was NEVER any parking in the evenings- I think I spent more time trying to park the car than I did at the pool. Anyway the grounds were beautiful and the courtyard was great but the parking was outragious and really needs to be worked on.
