“Like your rich friend loaned you their apartment”
Reviewed 28 October 2012

This is a lovely garden apartment building run by the friendliest bunch of guys. Its location on the intercoastal waterway is gorgeous. Spacious fully stocked apartments with the most interesting and eclectic furniture and artwork. It really feels like someone loaned you their apartment and left some good friends around to take care of you. After staying here it will be hard to be satisfied with any routine hotel rooms in your future travels.

Room Tip: The units have alot MORE space than you would usually expect.

I absolutely love this place!
It's a nice small apartment hotel that feels like home.
The owners and staff are so welcoming and take such a good care of you.
It's located just a few minutes walk from the Atlantic and right on the Intracoastal.
The decore is interesting.
This is by far one of the best hotels I've ever stayed at.
This was the third time I came back.

Must just write a follow up to my earlier review of Manhattan Tower. Through visiting this place we fell in love with Fort Lauderdale. The owner Russel Dion is a realtor and has helped us find our dream apartment in the sun - so now we live there too! Maybe staying there can make your dreams come true and in any case say hi to Russel, Joe and TJ and tell them I sent you.

Room Tip: Overlook the Intracoastal - its worth a little extra

I found it hard to refer to Manhattan tower as our "hotel". It quickly became our Florida home with Russell and Joe friendly and generous neighbors. We had no idea what awaited us when we arrived to find no one at the front desk. I called Russell to find out that our room was ready for us and all we had to do was walk in. Our beautiful apartment, with quirky mid century design, was better stocked than my home. There was not one cooking gadget or toiletry that was missing. Even if it wasn't in my room, Russell, Joe or TJ would find it.


You can't beat the location. Just a few blocks from the beach (beach chairs provided), near shops, restaurants and Las Olas, and just a wave away from a water taxi pickup (if you must leave the hotel).


Views of the intercoastal from the rooms or on the common deck were spectacular. I can't recommend Manhattan Tower enough (as long as there will be room for me to come back).

Room Tip: The decor in each room is unique and they are all great. We started in a 1 BR on the intercoastal...

Stayed here for 10 days late Jan/Feb and loved it. Location is superb, watching the boats go by from the waterfront suite or patio. Easy walk to beach, restaurants, etc. Unique decor. Russel, Joe, TJ..we hope to come back next year for a longer stay. Thank you!

We have just returned from Manhattan Tower - our second visit - and I can't recommend it highly enough. We have stayed in Studio Apartment 207 and 1 bedroom 108 , both with intercoastal views, and both beautifully furnished with unusual pieces from Russel and Joe's collection. We love this place - it is quiet and peaceful, but walking distance to restaurants and bars, amazing views, a large swimming pool, and Russel, Joe and TJ go out of their way to make your stay special. Go and see for yourself - it's wonderful!

Room Tip: Rooms with the intercoastal water view are worth the extra money. Spectacular!

Stayed at Manhattan Tower for the second time, and love it even more! Can really recommend if you are visiting Fort Lauderdale: excellent location (walking distance to the beach, restaurants and stores) and you can enjoy the afternoon sun at the deck by the intercoastal waterway. Nice, spacious rooms, peace and quiet, and even dogs are welcome. Very friendly and helpful staff.
