“The B Ocean was great!!!!”
Reviewed 14 February 2011

Had anticiapted the hotels opening for so long and was very pleased with the whole "B" brand experience. The room and public spaces were stunning, and everything was white, bright, and fresh, and the views from the rooms are amazing. It was trully like staying at an exclusive spa. The pool area was small but had a really hip vibe and plays cool ambient music. My only complaint was that the pool bar was not yet open and the hotel still seems to be working out the kinks but the staff was great and enthusiastic and you will have a wonderful experience at this hotel! Check out "Franco and Vinny's" a local institution and just around the corner form the hotel, for probably the best Italian food you will find in all of Southern Florida, also you can walk to the Galleria with great shopping and dining, the water taxi, and the state parks which border both sides of the hotel. There is also a great place for French breakfast pastries called the "Eurobread Cafe" in a condo building just across from the Galleria. Can't wait to go back!!!

My wife and I had a wonderful Valentine's Day getwaway. The hotel is gorgeous and the view from our room was breathtaking. Having a full ocean view was awesome, what a great way to wake up in the morning.
The "B"stro had great food, the burger and turkey sandwich were awesome.
I loved the fact that I did not have to pay a dime for WIFI. Every hotel should be like the "B" and give free WIFI. Being able to checkout a IPAD from the front desk was so cool.
The only complaint that my wife and I had was that the "B" could not make the rain go away. Luckily the rooms come with a large flat screen tv. The staff and service were great and were there to help you in anyway possible.
Definetly going back!!!!!

Believe hotel officially opened the week before we arrived; however, everything was in tip-top shape. This was a great place to stay. Beach was right across street, many small shops to have a quick meal or buy things for beach were within one block and if you chose, really didn't have to leave hotel for anything. Pool area was great with 3 cabanas and was well maintained and very clean. Staff bent over backwards to be helpful. Although we didn't eat at hotel restaurant, we heard it was very good. We got an introductory rate which really made the hotel a great value. Our room like all room overlooked the beach and this was a definite plus. Everything was very modern, from the lobby to the fixtures in the room. Only negative which did not deal with hotel itself, was the beach. On our first day, we noticed a lot of seaweed on the beach and on our second day, 1000's of Portuguese Man of Wars washed ashore along the southern Florida coast and while beaches to the north, quickly cleaned up, Ft Lauderdale was very slow to do so. So for a day or two after the epidemic passed, still couldn't go into water because of lack of beach cleanup. Finally, note there is a $25/day parking fee with valet service; however, you can park for $10 in the lot behind the hotel if you park the car yourself. All in all, would definitely go back and would recommend this hotel to anyone who plans a beach trip to Ft Lauderdale.

While this was a brand new hotel still figuring things out; the rooms were comfy with great ocean views, the location across from the beach convenient and the staff bent over backwards to be friendly, helpful and accomodating with any and all of our questions. They made me and my three teen/college kids feel welcome and comfortable and you could feel the pride all of the staff had in their facility. This is a smaller, personal hotel-not your mega-hotel with huge fitness room, pool and generic restaurant but instead the facilities are small, intimate, super clean and very classy. I would go back in a minute...especially since there is 3 feet of snow on the ground here!!!
