Wonderful Resortfrom A TripAdvisor Member
IDEAL FAMILY ACCOMODATION ON THE OCEANfrom A TripAdvisor Member
we are VERY FUSSY people and i dont think anyone would be disapointed with this choice.we have been here since 1998 3 times.
if you are booking i would recommend the intercoastal view and book the las olas side of the property as a new building is going up next to beach place which will darken the sunrise blvd end of the property.sun is on the ocean side in the morning and on the intercoastal in the afternoon.the higher up you are the better the view,if you are lucky and get a back coner unit you have a beach and intercoastal view.
on the negative side as of summer 04 rooms common areas are getting a little tierd kitchen drawers and bottom of units are showing some signs of wear here and there though noting too serious.parking is always available but the drive to the 4th floor can be tiresome at times, but the positives far outweigh any negatives, i think they are going to renovate next year.
for us its a 10 out of 10
good time, nice vacationfrom minijeanie
Pool is extremely small and full of kids 90% of the day. On this vacation I went with 4 other friends with no children, so we chose the beach instead. Also, kids were always in the jacuzzi as well. It was quite annoying. Since there are two jacuzzis, I believe the hotel should designate one "adults only".
Unfortunately, last week we had lots of rain. Fortunately, we found Max's restaurant which is located in the marketplace directly below the hotel. They have a great lunch deal. Anything on the menu for 3.99. Plus they have a 3-1 drink deal. So many rainy afternoons were spent in Max's.
We rented a 2 BR suite. It was clean and there is plenty of closet and drawer space. It held enough for 5 women and then some. Maid service was just so-so. Coffee was never emptied out of the coffee pot. Just a general tidying up. But nothing so severe that I would complain.
However, the elevators are another story. They are horrific. And I was going during the slow season. 4 elevators for 19 floors of a hotel and 5 floors of parking garage is totally unacceptable and certaintly not of Marriott caliber. We even attempted walking up the stairs using the fire exits. However, if you start on the ground floor, you cannot get up to the lobby. So it is a futile effort. My only advice is to take the elevator from the ground floor (P1) and at least you will have some advantage. Also, no need to take the tunnel, street is narrow enough to make it across the street to the beach.
Also, beach chairs are $5 a day and you must relinquish them by 4:30 pm. Some days, the sun did not come out till after 3:00 and we all just wanted to hang around. So once again, my advice is to bring your own chair.
Wish the hotel would be able to rent you a chair for your entire stay so you can determine how long you wish to spend on the beach.
Once again, these are minor infractures which certaintly did not ruin my time.
The piano bar howl at the moon is alot of fun. Since I am over 40, it was best to get there early and leave before 12:00. We found the crowd turned a little more on the wild side and got much younger as the evening went on.
All in all, had a great time, beach beautiful, but I will say have stayed in other marriott vacation villas which were much more impressive. But, I still wouldn't want to write this one off...Beach alone is worth it.
s Beachplace Towers - AWESOMEfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The staff there was very, very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel at home. I would definately go back here.
Love it!!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
The staff, I can't say enough about how friendly and helpfull they are. There are ALOT of family things to do. Kids fun is everywhere!!! Time for adults is readily available. As two adults looking for fun, we found it when ever we wanted it. The nearby restaurants are OK. There is a good bar a block south that we really had a great time at. The room was great, clean taken care of daily. Don't let the city water scare ya, it is just fine.
If your are thinking of staying at a clean, fun, relaxing, safe place...Beach Place is a great pick.
Really nice place. Great vacation spot for all ages...from A TripAdvisor Member
Great Holidayfrom cosmic
Something for everyone, but not for everyone!from A TripAdvisor Member
Great Location, shame about the parkingfrom alliebdive
How to avoid the noise!from A TripAdvisor Member
Firstly, the noise - this is a big problem IF you're on the front of the hotel looking over the ocean. On our first night we were woken at midnight and the music (noise) continued until 3am. We went down to complain and the staff understood the problem, they arranged to move us the next day to a room overlooking the intercostal waterway at the back of the hotel. Personally I thought the view was better and there was NO noise.The noise on the first day was the only problem we had at the resort, everything else was first class and the staff were extremely friendly.So don't let other reviews about the noise put you off going to BeachPlace Towers - but you must insist on a room at the back of the hotel!
Top Local Tips for Fort Lauderdale
Active night life near hotel If you like loud live music and late night partying, there seemed to be many restaurants and bars within walking distance of the hotel. Not a good family atmosphere.
Where to stay before or after cruise When your looking for a place to stay before or after your cruise, please don't just go for something close to the cruise terminal. The entire beach is close to the terminal. A few of the hotels that I kept seeing as recommendations for before or after cruise stays, (such as Hyatt, Pier 66 and Renassiance) seem to be in the middle of nothing. Consider paying for a cab, $20 or less, and book something where some actions is.
Great Mexican Food at Carlo's and Pepe's in Ft. Lauderdale The resort suggested Carlo's and Pepe's for Mexican, it was probalby the BEST MEXICAN I have had!!
