Set on the oceanfront in Pompano Beach, one of Florida’s finest diving destinations, the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa is ideally situated between the cosmopolitan appeals of Boca Raton to its north and Fort Lauderdale to its south. The city is ripe for discovery – named one of the top 10 “up-and-coming” U.S. destinations in 2014 by TripAdvisor, and considered by many to be "The Gay Capital of Florida," it's just minutes from the charming barrier island town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa is a boutique-style resort that caters to leisure and business travelers alike with the simple pleasures of Florida beach living. Each of the resort’s 194 guest rooms and 25 suites features a private balcony overlooking the Atlantic. Sand and sea are reflected in a palette of cream and gold with pale green accents and warm wood furnishings. Among the larger accommodations are (16) Executive Oceanfront Suites with a privacy wall separating the bed from the living area and (5) 750-square-foot Presidential Suite with a king bedroom and separate living room.
Guests enjoy fresh local fare and speakeasy-style drinks at McCoy’s Oceanfront, sea-inspired treatments at SiSpa, poolside relaxation, beach access with water sports, and everything business travelers need for a productive stay.
McCoy’s Oceanfront is known for its contemporary preparations of seasonal, local and sustainable ingredients, with a focus on Florida seafood, served in a casual indoor/outdoor setting with ocean views. The beachfront restaurant and lounge pays homage to its Prohibition-era namesake in a drinks menu of classic cocktails with fresh-pressed juices and dark spirits that channel McCoy’s rum-running days. McCoy’s also offers an extensive wine list and daily happy hour specials from 4-7 p.m., served poolside. Friday happy hour entertainment often continues throughout the weekend, ranging from an island tropical vibe to mainstream music. McCoy’s is open daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
