Good deal

Posted May 14, 2017
This hotel was a solid, good service establishment. The first room they gave me smelled musty and they immediately changed my room. I had friends staying at a nearby Hilton property that was more expensive and the worst Hilton I've ever seen in terms of cleanliness and outdated rooms, so I was very happy with my choice.

Breakfast included!

Posted May 8, 2017
Pros: Breakfast was included in the price which to me was a bonus - this was not the case with a lot of other hotels listed!
Cons: Maybe lifts a bit aged and bathroom might need revamping but these are petty gripes.
Location: Birch Park is worth a visit. Bonnet house is near there too - water taxis and Jungle Queen trip. Get a ride up Las Olas Boulevard then walk back.
Actually it is a nice hotel with the beach virtually round the corner! One of the reasons I chose this hotel was because breakfast was included (pleasant enough with good choice). Though non-smoking, I've since discovered (didn't know at the time) that if your room has an outside balcony, you can smoke there, which seems fair to me. If you walk along the beachfront you come to the long Fort Lauderdale Beach Boulevard where there are many bars and restaurants catering for all prices so you should find somewhere that suits you. Places I enjoyed eating at were Bubba Gump, Back Alley (just off FLBB serving BBQ food) and 2 places I ate at twice, Quaterdeck at the beginning of Las Olas Boulevard, just off FLBB, and Lulu's Bait Shack in Beach Place, a mini mall further up FLBB. Lulu's Bait Shack has theme nights so my 2nd visit on a thursday wine was half price. I mentioned these places because my guidebook rather inexplicably failed to mention any of them! Though it is tempting to while away one's time with a cocktail on the beach front or by the hotel pool, there is quite a lot to see in Fort Lauderdale as the guidebooks will show. It's 26 years since I was last in the States and this was a first in Florida - Fort Lauderdale was a great place to visit with a great buzz. BTW, if you are a smoker watch out for rip-off prices - your best bet for puchasing cigarettes is 7/11 stores and then duty free at a US airport (I went from Miami) not UK. Can't wait to go back!

Nice surprise! Would stay again.

Posted Apr 29, 2017
Pros: Pool was very nice. The hotel has a quaint restaurant/bar with excellent food. We recommend the coconut shrimp! Clean room & friendly staff.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: Unfortunately a country festival was being set up on the beach w. We had to walk for a bit to get to the beach. Lots to do fairly close by though.
We were very surprised, the hotel was nicer than we expected for the price. We were going on a cruise & wanted to spend a couple of days in Ft. Lauderdale, but did not want to spend a whole lot, the price was good.

Great location and clean hotel!

Posted Apr 26, 2017
Location: Unlike other expensive hotels on the strip you don't need to cross the busy street to get to beach. Hotel has side path that leads directly to beach.
Staff is nice and helpful. Easy check in and check out. Hotel is renovated and clean.

Cozy and next to the beach

Posted Mar 21, 2017
We traveled as a group with a hectic schedule, so getting nicely checked in, getting beautiful rooms and a more than decent breakfast buffet was great. All the staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. And it is a few meters from the beach.Specially at the front desk

Very clean hotel with nice amenities!

Posted Mar 7, 2017
Pros: The facilities and location were great!
Cons: You have to pay for parking, and the parking garage is EXTREMELY tight to maneuver around in - in fact, our truck almost did not clear vertically.
This was a last minute online booking, and the concierge staff was very accommodating - they were pleasant and even upgraded our room!

Nice hotel close to the beach and cruise port.

Posted Mar 6, 2017
Excellent pre-cruise hotel stay. Hotel staff were extremely efficient & friendly. Check-in was swift. Staff at the front desk were great! Included hot buffet breakfast was very good, with a variety of choices. Free wi-fi was nice to have. Corner room was large & very clean, beds were comfy. Large bathroom with a walk-in shower. View out the window was of the hotel next door, but we hadn't paid for a 'room with a view'. Hotel is just around the corner from the beach and lots of shops and restaurants. Hotel is also close to the cruise port. Swimming pool was clean. Would definitely stay here again.
