My husband surprised me with a stay at this lovely 1930s era villa turned hotel during a layover in Ft Lauderdale. It was so delightful, we really had no need to leave the hotel during our stay. It's a complete haven from the sketchy beach crowd that inhabits the nearby boardwalk. But, with that said, the hotel is just a few minutes walk from the beach if you get bored of the calm intracoastal and want some ocean action. We felt like we could easily be in Portofino or Nice while on the grounds of The Pillars. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive. We enjoyed champagne upon checking in and lounging by the water with dockside bar service. There is a small pool in the middle of the property that is perfectly adequate for cooling off. The rooms were comfortable and cozy with updated bathrooms. Some of the suites have fantastic private balconies overlooking the water. That evening we dined on the dock by the water while watching the boats pass by. The food and ambiance were delightful. There is a bar indoors and lounge area that most likely was the home's original parlor. Our only regret was having to leave the next morning. We hope to return for a weekend getaway in the near future.
