Bahia Mar Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel, A DoubleTree by Hilton Review

This nicely situated Fort Lauderdale beachfront classic received a long-overdue nip/tuck in 2011-12 that included cheery, refreshed guestrooms and rebranding as a DoubleTree hotel. Identical rooms are available in both the marina building and the tower building; however, the latter tends to offer superior vistas. Overall, rooms tend to be on the small side, starting at 250 square-feet; but the boating crowd that patronizes this hotel doesn't seem to mind. Note that the hotel fills up quickly for boating events, since they are often hosted along Bahia Mar's megamarina. Most year-round snorkeling and boat outfitters are found directly on the marina; the water taxi also makes regular stops here.
