This place is right in the middle of the action of Ft Lauderdale, among the high rises, but it is a nice small resort, with decent pricing and helpful staff. This is a small place, with about 25-30 rooms. The staff knows you well and caters to your needs. Easy walk to many restuarants. The beach is directly across the... More

We found this place by accident and have been coming back ever since! Love the large clean rooms and the location. Everyone in office has worked here for many years so that says a lot! The beach is right across the street and there are usually chairs in office they let you borrow. Not your fancy fancy hotel, but that's... More

The rooms were very well appointed. Daily house cleaning was a plus. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly. Thank you Maryjo for all your help! The ocean views from the third floor were beautiful. Close to restaurants, bars and CVS for all your vacation needs. We can't wait to go back!

We stay at the Merriweather often and every time it is a delight. The facility functions so well and is maintained to the highest standards. The staff is warm and friendly and the location couldn't be better. The beautiful beach s directly across the street and restaurants and convenience stores are within walking distance. Highly recommend.

It's so nice to hear that you loved it here. I agree, The Merriweather offers just as much if not more (friendly low key charm) than the large hotels. We look forward to having you here soon. More
