    My girlfriend, her fiancée, and her 2 daughters (age 11 and 27) are in Ft. Lauderdale now and stayed at the Marriott at 6650 N. Andrews Ave. During checkout time this morning, there was an HT attempt to take her girls, and the front desk employees are in on it via using “stall” tactics. They thwarted the attempt, but are shaken by this.
