I stayed at the hotel on January 2011 and the experience wasn't pleasant. To start with, the staff at the reception desk is the most unwelcoming staff I have encountered after years of traveling, not even saying hello when you walk into the hotel. Regarding the cleanliness, the rooms where not vacuumed during my entire stay, I mean I would see the same crumbs left by me the day before! The carpets were worn out, even with a yellow stain, the appliances and paint seemed very used and what was once a nice decor is now worn out. (Btw good luck even getting the room done!)
There were even strange (and disgusting!) smells in the corridors.
If you are bothered by noises, do not even think of this hotel. There is a fire station just 2 blocks away and trucks constantly go through.
The location is nice, just 3 blocks from the beach, but you can find better in Fort Lauderdale, where some hotels have direct access to the beach! (and are much better, believe me!)
The gym is very dark, with no working air conditioner and with little channels on its tvs.
The only positive things about the hotel are the pool and outside services, which tough a little unkept are nicely decorated and the heated pool.
All in all I would seriously recommend choosing another hotel!
