The Marriott Residence was a treat! the hotel is very nice with modern decor. The valet was a nice treat, we don't always feel like stars, and although it costs 18 dollars per day in resort fees, we found them well worth it. The pools were nice and never crowded and the beach was just a hop skip and jump away! Beach chairs were FREE...yes you read that right. last year we paid almost 20 dollars a day for chairs in Deerfield. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We ate in the bistro twice and it was great at moderate prices. The price of a frozen concoction seemed high at 9.00 but again we were on vacation. The room was perfect for us! Three queen beds that were very comfortable. The rest of the condo was exactly as described. We loved having both the street and ocean views to keep up on the action. The only downfall was the wireless was non existent basically which made my elder generation happy since my internet didn't work and I was forced to talk to them. The kitchen table only had three chairs which a fourth would have been nice but the couch was right there. The breakfast was outstanding with lots of options and it changed everyday. The Tiki bar next door was always hopping! Will have to visit there more often next time. Everything was a drive but just a short distance and most food places delivered right to the room. It was close to malls and a few novelty shops. We really enjoyed driving on A1a to Deerfield, Lauderdale by the Sea, and Hollywood beach. We also had time to squeeze in a little fun at Isle of Capri casino and my favorite...the Swap Shop, I love bargains! Thanks Bren for the great stay!
