First of all let me say that the view from my room was spectacular. From the 11th floor I had an awesome panoramic view of the ocean. This place would be ideal for a romantic honeymoon. The location of this this hotel is near perfect, close to restaurants and the beach and shops to buy souvenirs. The decor of the room is all white, highlighted with ocean-like impressionistic art on the walls. The room was immaculately clean and kept so daily by the housekeeping staff. In general all the hotel staff were friendly and accommodating. They even will let you have a loaner Ipad if you need one for internet connectivity. Overall a great experience, one that I would definitely wish to repeat if I ever return again to Fort Lauderdale.

We were only in Ft. Lauderdale for a night before we boarded a cruise ship. I had been looking for a hotel room for a couple of months. I saw a special on Travelzoo at the B Ocean Fort Lauderdale and decided to book it. The hotel and room exceeded my expectations! The room was as pictured with a fabulous view of the ocean. The room was white and airy and spacious. The beach is just across the street so we were able to walk on the sand at night and spend some time sunbathing the next morning. I would definitely stay there again if I went back to Ft. Lauderdale.

Room Tip: All the rooms have ocean views. We were on the 8th floor and it was great.

Stayed for 2 nights, pizza place, shops and bars near by, other bars and shopping area about a mile away (short taxi ride). Hotel is absolutely beautiful, all rooms have an amazing view of the ocean. Staff was super friendly and very helpful.

Room Tip: Defintely reccommend the room with floor to ceiling windows, absolutely amazing view to wake up to!

If you want a room with a view, this is the place to stay. Across the street from the North Side of Ft. Lauderdale Beach, far enough away from the action to have a quite enjoyable stay. This boutique hotel offers more than meets the eye and is a great value for the dollar. Each and every room has an ocean front view and the rooms are well appointed, clean and comfortable. Be sure to visit the penthouse level at some point and get a real view from up there.

From the moment we were greeted by the parking valet the tone was set for this welcoming hotel stay. We found the staff to be outstanding and truly dedicated to their roles at the hotel in servicing your needs no mater how big or small. The B Bistro Restaurant is very accomodating and the food and service is terrific; we of course had our favorite waiters; James and Dominique; however, accoladaes to the entire staff from the friendly hostess to the managers and of course hats off to the chef. While we only had a few lunches and breakfast meals, we found them well prepared and presented. Nothing beats a fluffy omelet in the morning, or for those who eat light, the oatmeal alone was quite satisfying. My wife swears by the yogurt parfait that is made with wonderfully fresh fruit.
The poolside bar is as good as it gets where the bartenders remember your name; say hello to Joe Jei if he is tending bar as he will certainly remember your name and drink during your stay. Even the water infused with oranges, limes and cucumbers was a refreshing delight.
My wife and daughter both enjoyed some time at the Spa, and had a wonderful relaxing experience,.
Now the beach. Ft. Lauderdale beach is well maintained and not too crowded at this end of the beach so enjoy.
From reading all of this you wouldn't have guessed that we had some awful weather during our stay that would have dampered most vacations; ours was not, all thanks to the great staff. So I give this hotel a 5 star rating worthy of a return trip.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 8th floor, however, a wedding reception was a bit loud on the penthouse level; ne...

Stayed here for 3 days after our cruise and we absolutely loved it! The staff was very friendly and genuine, the decor was modern and stylish and everything was very clean. The views are unbeatable!!! All rooms have an ocean view, though 2 floors have floor to ceiling windows which looked stunning. Great views but note that others may very well be able to see into your room given the hotel is curved sort of like a U. We requested a high floor and no feathers in the room due to allergies and arrived to find the room ready and waiting early. Parking is a bit pricey at ~$25/day so if you're renting a car factor that in. I would most definitely stay there again and again :)

Room Tip: 9th and 10th floor have floor to ceiling windows

My wife , daughter and I stayed 5 days at the B Ocean Fort Lauderdale and had a tremendous experience! The room was great and we felt it was one of our favorites for the price and in general. The staff from valets to front desk to cleaning and bar were super friendly and very helpful.
Our room (no. 801) provided an absolutely perfect oceanfront and side view. It was a joy to open up the shades in the morning and take in the sun and beach scene. The room was a good size with a sofa bed, King bed, and nice coffee table. We also had plenty of room to add a crib for the little one. Being a sports fan, I also enjoyed the 42" Pnasonic HD TV, which had a very sharp picture. Only two disappointments. I was not a fan of the direct overhead shower and lack of a tub, nor the lack of a refrigerator in the room. The shower issue was not a big deal but it would've been great to have the fridge.
The pool was very good as well. A little small but it was never crowded and all of the guests were very pleasant, even with my daughter singing and playing away.
The fitness center was small (some ellipticals and treadmills) but the one weight machine had everything you needed to hit all of the body parts efficiently. The filtered water and towels came in handy as well.
The location is perfect. Away (but not too far) from the Las Olas hustle and bustle but enough action (bars, beach shops, food spots, Liquor store, etc) for one to enjoy day and night time fun. Beach is directly across the street and a lot of fun too!
I have recommended the B Ocean already. Thank you to the staff. Great experience!

If you arrive in the evening whilst the walls are changing colors, it can be a bit off-putting. The reception desk was very small considering the size of the lobby but the staff were friendly. They looked after our luggage as we were checking in early. Room was modern and clean and a good ocean view. The hotel is semi circular in shape so privacy from other rooms is an issue as they can see directly into your room and drawing the blinds defeats the object of the view. Area around the hotel was a bit seedy but easy walk to a large mall and the water taxi for the intercoastal waterway.
We ate at the Japanese restaurant. Food was pricy but good. Never used the main restaurant.
Friendly staff and good service. They should abolish their self parking fees which would be a good advertising point (I hate those).
