Excellent little hotel in Fort Lauderdale, a very short walk (5 minutes) away from the beach and shops by the beach. Premium accommodations for a fraction of the price (it feels like you're staying at the W). Will definitely stay there again when visiting Fort Lauderdale!
The rooms are modern and nicely decorated, ours included a fridge and small kitchen, 2 flat screen TVs, new A/C that kept the room as cold as one wanted, nice leather couch and other seating, plenty of storage space (closet and drawers, ironing board, iron and hangers provided). Four of us stayed in the room (2 beds) and there was more than enough room for everyone. There are two pools, both with crystal clear water, and ample of beach chairs (under the full sun or in the shade) to lay around, beach towels provided.
The staff were excellent - we needed to call them twice (once our water heater stopped working and another time we couldn't find parking (big event going on at the beach)) and both times everything was taken care of within minutes! (for parking, they moved one of their cars to make room for ours!) (Normally parking wasn't a problem because parking tags are provided to hotel guests).
Before booking I was a little concerned, having read a complaint that the room wasn't cleaned daily - now true! Our room was cleaned daily and impeccably, and clean towels provided on a daily basis!
Tranquilo was really quite a nice discovery, and the name is well deserved. We loved it so much that one day we ditched our friends and instead of going to the beach we stayed at the pool (and had a wonderful time).
