“B-delighted!”
Reviewed 21 July 2012

This modern hotel with its ultra-chic lobby is in the W style minus all the cheese. It's clean, with great views and the best deal on the strip. The excellent service is highlighted by cool contemporary furnishings. You may even want to take home the stuffed turtle they offer. The main lounge service was appallingly slow but we may have had a rookie. ABSOLUTELY NOT TO BE MISSED is the Oceanview Delight cafe around the corner at 9th and A1A between McSorley's and the Sunwear shop. There you will be treated to entrees with fresh ingredients by the most helpful friendly service we've ever encountered and they're steps away from the beach. The hotel also has a nice pool that is calm and relaxing.

Room Tip: Corner rooms facing the street are bigger. Watch out you could be right on the busy Sunrise Blvd and...

Stayed last Friday and Saturday night. Staff is super friendly, and many thanks to Elana at the pool bar for the custom drinks!!

Great breakfast options at the Bistro, and we really enjoyed an early happy hour there of cheese and crackers with their self-serve wine bar.

Bed was very comfortable, room was quite, and view of the ocean was nice.

Very pretty property where every room has a wonderful panoramic ocean view!
This is a remodeled very old building. It has been wonderfully redone however, the sound proofing is not very good. We heard every footstep in the hallway. We finally just turned the air down so low it would run continuous and provide some background noise so we could sleep. The bedding is super comfortable with lots of pillows provided!
Other than that the service was good.
The pool area is a bit small too but if you have the beach right across the street not sure that is a huge problem :-)
You also have a $25 fee on top if you are valeting your car.

Some friends and I met in Ft. Lauderdale for a girls weekend. We were impressed with the B online due to it's chic pictures. 2 of the 3 us have stayed in Ft. Lauderdale before at a couple different hotels. While it was very nice, there are a couple of things that I didn't like too. To start, the lobby was fabulous and the staff was wonderful! We were greeted right away and were so early the wonderful staff stored our bags and we ate lunch and used the pool. All nice and clean. The food was great (tomato and moz salad was our favorite!!) The service on our first visit to the B'stro was horrible! The only reason we ever went back was due to the salad! The service the 2nd time was incredible! The pool was very small but that did not bother us because the bartender was amazing. The rooms were amazing with breathtaking views, BUT There was a lot of noise in the hall all night long and the room was never "cooled off." The biggest complaint about the hotel is that it is not all that convenient to "fun". I don't mind walking, but it was out of the way to the rest/bars. Otherwise it was great!

Room Tip: All the rooms have incredible views!

Dear Mamat2000, thanks for your feedback. Glad to hear the staff was wonderful. Apologies for the first experience at B'stro but happy to see that we recovered on your second visit. The distance to the "fun" area in FLL beach is actually a positive, because most people prefer to go and party away from the hotel and comeback to a quieter area of the beach.

We arrived on a Wednesday evening after a terrible experience with Alamo Rent A Car. The hotel manager was so helpful, kind and welcoming. Our room was a junior suite on the 11th floor. We got sweeping views of beaches, state park, big boats and city. The pool area has these wonderful outdoor sofas, everything is clean, quiet and enjoyable. We flew in and out of Miami-it was well worth traveling to the B Ocean.

I was more than happy with my stay at B Ocean. The rooms were very modern, contemporary, and very clean. The view was gorgeous as all the rooms come with an ocean view. The location was also perfect. B Ocean sits in the middle of A1A and is right across the street from the beach. I also thought that the staff was very friendly, helpful, and very kind. I especially want to acknowledge Tiffany, the manager of the property. She was more than glad to print out our boarding passes for our flight the next day and even called me on my cell phone to clarify something concerning my flight. She was very helpful, too, in providing us with directions to the Seminole Hard Rock and with giving her recommendations for restaurants. She also answered many questions concerning activities to do in the surrounding area. I was more than pleased with our stay at B Ocean and would definitely stay here again. I give it 5 stars all the way!

Room Tip: All rooms come with an ocean view so you really can't go wrong with any room that you get

My Sister & I stayed three days at B Ocean in which we planned a social gathering at B'Stro resturant in the Beach Resort. The stay was absolutely wonderful and the staff was completely welcoming and inviting. Our room had stunning views if Ft. Lauderdale Beach, in which it was right out the doors of B Ocean. Our social group enjoyed themselves and cant wait until next year to do it again. The wine, food and service at b'stro was superb and the famous"Wall" at B Ocean was AWESOME!! I Love this place and would diffantly stay again, and again.
