We were surprised with the great reviews. The rooms and pool were no better than one would get at a Hampton Inn. The draw here is it being on the intercostal and having very comfortable lounge chairs in which to watch the boats go by.
We tend to stay at small hotels and inns and found this one to be overpriced. It seems most of the money went into the entrance, reception desk area and restaurant . By 5:00 the lovely sitting area by the intercoastal is turned into a restaurant and are no longer for guests.
The front desk staff are young and attractive and helpful. The Pillars seems to appeal to those over 50 and international visitors and anyone looking for privacy and relaxation. It is also gay friendly .
The pluses were free parking, great
linens, and ice tea by the pool area. A refrigerator and microwave. It is also a 5 minute walk to beach and restaurants. For the better restaurants, which Ft Lauderdale has many, you will need a car.
For these prices we expected more. Even a continental breakfast or afternoon wine hour or tea would be more in line with other small hotels.
Unless pricing changes we will stay elsewhere. Prices listed on trip advisor are much lower than actual fees.
