I usually love to stay at any Marriott but this trip I stayed at two that were just beat up and kind of ratty on this trip. This is one of them. It needs a paint job, the drapes are stained, the coffee pot was cracked. Not big things but items that a Marriott doesn't ever have. It surprised me...

The elevator was not very faithful and in need of repair. The red couch in our room was worn and uncomfortable as was the queen size bed. The sink and toilet were very low. I requested a newspaper and only received it once out of 10 days. A request to order more newspapers was denied from upper management. Many people...

We were orginally booked at Sawgrass Grand but was told upon checkin that they accidentalkyhad overbooked and there were no rooms left. We were told that rooms were reserved at the Residence Inn for us. The girl at the front desk (Brittany) was super helpful and arranged for an extra cot in our room before we arrived. The room has...

The hotel is Conveniently located from the airport. The rooms are clean and offer all the comforts of home. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfasts are excellent with a wide variety of choices. Evening meals with free wine and beer can't be beat.

Overall a good experience. The room was clean and fairly quiet. The hotel is set back from the roadway so that helps noise levels. The breakfast was good and the eating area is fairly large and spread out. My only complaint is the building does need some renovation. It is fairly dated and needs some work. The HVAC is very...

It was easy to find the Residence Inn Fort Lauderdale Plantation in the dark during rush hour! The directions provided by the Marriott website were clear and the hotel itself was accommodating. If a person wanted to shop or go out to eat, the location was perfect with varied food venues and a large shopping center in walking distance. It...

Stayed here in August of 2014 with husband and mother-in-law. We liked our room, we loved the staff, but the clientele were sometimes disturbing. I witnessed "guests" literally screaming at the front desk staff over what seemed to me to be nothing. The staff just took it, but there were times I thought the guests were going to get physical....
