“clean, quiet, beautiful”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

This is really a great little hotel in Fort Lauderdale. It is clean, appointed nicely with a king bed and the location is great------as long as you have a car and do not want to walk to the beach. It is quiet but very handy to Sunrise Bld. Very good breakfast in the morning. Cons----If you check in other than between 2:00----5:00 p.m., you will probably be by your self so make those arrangements with the owner in advance and do not expect to check in before 2:00.

Room Tip: lower level next to pool

Thank you for the nice review. Our location is for sure not for the people who spend all their time at the beach but prefer a nice quite sunny pool. Our location is centrally located so as to offer our guests every thing Ft.Lauderdale has to offer. As far as check in you can always request an early check in if its available and our after hours "seamless" check-in is very much liked by our European guests. This way they don't have to hurry and can take their time getting to the hotel especially if arriving late into Miami airport. Again many Thanks and Happy Holidays

This was a stop over after leaving a cruise ship in Fort Lauderdale - what a great place - if you really want some peace and quiet, yet still access to the beach and fort lauderdale - this is the place to stay. Walt - the owner - was extremely helpful, made us very welcome and even allowed us to stay a little longer while waiting for flights. We will definitely be back to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in Roon 3, a large double bed with ensuite right by the pool.

Best place to stay if you are a person that always ask's "what happend to customer service".
My stay here was a Birthday gift from my Girlfreind. Before I arrived Ispoke to Walt and asked him if we could check in early and if I had flowers delivered could he have them in the room before we checked in. He had theveything setup before we arrived and was extremely helpful and informative as to what and where to go around the area. I also want to let you know that if you are picky about your coffee, rest assured no need to go out for coffee whats available in the common kitchen are is worth waking up for.

Very relaxing and quiet atmosphere, other guest were freindly as well. The room was perfect, clean and alot more comfortable then larger hotels that I have stayed in. Overall I'm sure we will come back to stay here in the fall next year. 15FTL really is a gem if you want a calm relaxing atmosphere.

Thank You Walt!!

Craig & Brenda

Room Tip: Second floor poolside which faces west so the sun won't wake you up too early.

Very great experience in this Guesthouse. The hotel is calm, the room is clean, beautiful. Small hotel, thus very welcoming. The breakfast is very good: large choice of food that we can bring to eat around the swimming pool. The host is very nice. Very good hotel !

By arriving late and in the dark we only saw a small sign and a little welcome note at the gate - providing the room number and how to get there. Who describes our suprise when we checked into the beautiful room with a king bed, so carefully designed, so clean an neat! After a great night's sleep we discovered the pool right in front of our window surrounded by palm trees. And the we met Walt who really makes this place so special. We were treated like friends, he gave us some very good tips like where to eat breakfast (Floridian Restaurant - aaaaaaahh!) My husband and I had a great time and enjoyed every minute. The place is a hidden paradise.

Thank you very much for the nice review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit with us and got to experience our wonderful property. 15 FTL Hotels goal is to make everyone feel welcome and feel like they have their own little bit of south Florida paradise. We maintain our affordable rates by doing a pleasant self check-in process after 5pm so no guest ever feels rushed. The property allows for quite privacy unlike those larger hotels where you feel rushed to check-in and check-out. l' m so glad you felt at home and appreciated the service we provide. I look forward to your next visit with us in the future. Safe Travels, Walt

Recently myself and two friends stayed at 15 FTL Guesthouse and I am giving it the highest ratings- 5 stars. The owners/managers(Walt & Ed) were very attentative and gracious hosts. I did not feel like I was staying at a hotel but more like a guest at a friend's home. The rooms were decorated elegant and very clean. The property had a lush tropical feel and very well maincured. I felt like every morning I was staying at a tropical island which is what I had wanted. I will definitly be back.....

Thank you very much for the nice review. You and the guys were a delight to have staying with us. I'm so glad the property was just what you expected and looking for on your vacation. Our mix of guests is what really makes the property stand out and you and the guys were a treat to meet and visit with during your stay. You'll have to come back and visit and see the new out door shower area and some of the new landscaping. You had said in our conversation that you guys wanted to be near Wilton Manors and the night life but not be directly in it nor on the beach but close enough to be there in minutes. Our location has the best the area can offer both in shopping and food as well as night life. Please come see us again and tell the guys we send them our best. Enjoy the New York Fall weather this next month. Stay well, Ed and Walt

This place is a diamond in the rough. After spending most of my vacation in South Beach, I was wishing I would have spent more time here, for a much better price. You don't have to pay for parking, which is a major savings. The owner greeted us, and said he was going to get our room ready ASAP. Location is pretty great as well. It's pretty centrally located and easy to get to most anywhere in Fort Lauderdale. If you are looking for a place to crash for one night, or a comfortable place to lay your head for your entire trip, I recommend it. Can't wait to get back.

Thank you for taking the time to do a review of the property 15 FTL Hotel. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. A lot of people do stay with us versus Miami as Ft. Lauderdale is central to all that South Florida has to offer. (Everglades Park, Sawgrass Mills, beaches) We love the fact we are the only hotel in the area that's welcomes all adults and has that Key West guesthouse feel. Our open guests policy has made us one of the most popular hotel/guesthouses in the area. With our closeness to the beach, Wilton Manors (gay area clubs) down town and shopping we truly have a very special location and group of guests from all over the world from many back grounds and life styles. Please come see us again as it's always a pleasure to have guests like yourself stay with us. Kindest regards, Walt and Ed (owners)
