We had to extend our stay in Fort Lauderdale a few nights and the hotel we had been at was all booked up. So we used a new - to us - app called Hotel Tonight and found a great deal on a room at Il Lugano in North Fort Lauderdale, just off Oakland Park at A1A. Sleek-looking and hip hotel! Check-in was seamless. We were on the 9th floor with a west-facing view of the intracoastal with the city lights beyond. Perfect for chilling with a glass of wine late at night after a long, stressful day with a loved-one in the hospital.
Super-comfy king bed in a suite-type room with tv and music on console, desk with lamp, table with four chairs, couch and coffee table; nice-sized bathroom, plenty of closet space with robes, iron and ironing board; good-sized kitchenette with stove and microwave, and a washer-dryer in the unit - not to mention an in-room safe too - very convenient! Plenty of lighting. My room had a large concrete patio with table and four chairs; one could watch the sunset in style.
Front desk people were always warm, attentive and professional; a bonus having a prompt doorman!
Three small negatives: the first being my in-room coffee was not been replaced by housekeeping the second day so that when I got up on day three...no fresh coffee to brew. Another was a somewhat noisy hallway; I was on the end and so had a few more doors in close proximity to mine; people were unaware of how easily sounds travel into the rooms from the halls. The other was at checkout; they assumed I had used valet parking which I had not; it was easily dealt with in a friendly, proficient manner.
