“this is fabulous or icky - it depends”
Reviewed 13 February 2012

The hotel has a great location. You can walk to the beach, and later in the day you can walk to the mall to shop or have dinner.

There's even a drug store (CVS) a block away. You can stock your fridge, and benefit from the fully equipped kitchen. It's kind of weird (as others have mentioned) that the dishes are in the dishwasher and you get to put them away. On the other hand, there are dishes and a functioning kitchen. So that makes it OK.

Icky? The cockroach that walked across the kitchen counter. I caught and released him!

Also, the mirrors are streaked. Why is that?

The front desk staff are great. The food is good. The water taxi stops at the edge of the property. There is plenty to recommend this place. If they'd up the cleanliness, it would be a 5 star.

Room Tip: Others have mentioedn this, a city view is quieter.

The hotel looks good and is in a great location. And that's where it ends. The staff were laconic and seemed to have no knowledge of the area. There is no concierge, so we asked the desk staff if we could walk to Bonnet House. He didn't think so. Bonnet House is listed as one of the top attractions in Ft. Lauderdale and he didn't even know it was about two blocks away!! They wouldn't call us a cab for the airport - they would only book us their "limo" which was more expensive than a taxi ride. We had a two-bedroom suite. It was fine - nothing special, but okay - could have been a little cleaner, could have had a few more basics in the kitchenette. We went to the coffee bar to get our coffee, as the coffee maker didn't work well and produced a very weak cup of coffee. We came back with cold coffee, and when we returned it, they just said they were short staffed - no apology. And that was about how it went. We definitely wouldn't stay there again.

My wife and I stayed here while on a weekend away. The hotel was clean and the staff was helpful. It was a short walk to the beach, but a long walk to downtown Ft. Lauderdale.

First of all, the location is GREAT. We had a water view suite overlooking the intercoastal and it was lovely. First night walked over the bridge to a wonderful local Italian restaurant where we had wine, salad and pizza for less than $30! Bed was soooo comfy and with two flat screens - easy for the two of us if we had different choices. We walked 2 blocks to the beach and strolled for an hour - then took a $.50 trolley ride (I believe it only operates on weekends) back to the Galleria Mall - just 1 block from our hotel. Second evening we took the Water Taxi from the hotel dock.........and toured for over 3 hours for only $10.00 each. Would do it AGAIN!

Room Tip: Ask for water view.........it's worth it.

We spent two nights here - one night before our cruise and one night after. We were travelling with 4 kids and were assured that our room would be ready at the end of the cruise when we got there around 11 am. The room was not ready and we had to sit outside the hotel for over two hours waiting. They also had us leave our luggage with their valet service who later delivered it to our room. When I opened my laptop, I realized that the valet had dropped the bag the laptop was in and completely destroyed the screen on it. The valet manager came to take a claim on it but we had a flight out early the next morning so nothing else was done about it. Now trying to get their claim people to answer the phone or return a message is a nightmare and I'm left with a useless laptop that I've owned less than 6 months. The two nights we stayed costs us around $1,200 NOT including the $1,200 laptop! The shower door wouldn't close, the cordless phone didn't work and the windows are sealed shut so you can't get fresh air. Trying to get them to get us a cab to the port was useless - they loaded us into a van-limo before telling us it would cost $80...they kept telling us that the cab company we wanted didn't have minivans even though we got there from the airport in a minivan from that company. We ended up cramming into a Crown Vic cab that we had to call ourselves so we'd get there on time and paid only $35. Not ever going back there again. They can keep their warm chocolate chip cookies.

Like so many hotels, the public areas are pretty good but my room was tired. I stayed in room 1002 and there were various flaws:

1) Windows were draughty - I could hear the wind coming in and blowing the curtains.
2) One of the main bulbs in the kitchen area had blown (wasn't replaced all week).
3) There's clearly been some sort of water leak in the bathroom since the door frame was rotten in the corner and the carpet had been lifted and showed signs of water damage. The carpet should have been replaced and the door frame repaired.
4) Perhaps worst, the toilet didn't flush properly. An odd fault, but water only flowed in at the bottom of the pan and not down the sides. Was like it all week so the cleaning staff obviously couldn't be bothered to report it.

So while I tolerated the room (moving rooms is so much hassle), I couldn't really recommend this hotel - there's a clear lack of attention to detail.

I wish that I could have booked this hotel for more than one night in Ft. Lauderdale because the hotel was just perfect for my standards. Check in was very quick, followed by being given a warm chocolate chip cookie! Our suite was on the 8th floor, overlooking the water and draw bridge . We had huge windows on three of the 4 walls. It was very clean and spacious. The bed was extremely comfortable, with the freshest, crispy linens. The pillows were fluffy and welcoming. The bathroom was very clean and bright with the fluffy, soft towels. The location is so close to the beautiful beach and ocean, a mall and lots of shops. Everyone on the staff was helpful, happy and friendly.

Room Tip: Higher floors give a great view of the yachts and water below.
