Residence Inn Fort Lauderdale Intracoastal/Il Lugano
Ranked #7 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2014

This is the only hotel I'll stay at when I go to Fort Lauderdale. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, the staff always courteous and extremely helpful. The hotel is located across the beach, but slightly north of where the majority of the hotels are, which makes for a more relaxing stay. There are some terrific restaurants/wine bars/cafes right around the corner also. I look forward to staying at Il Lugano very soon.

Room Tip: I prefer the inter coastal side of the hotel

Great service especially from concierge Marianne. She was wonderful. Everyone was very helpful for the most part. Bellhop didn't explain the room or hotel. (I.e. Reservations suggested for dinner). But room dated. No plugs on both sides of bed. Fan didn't work. Not worth the price paid.

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting my in-laws. I was surprised how much I liked this hotel (I don't really like Ft Lauderdale overall so I had very low expectations). For the price (a little under $300/night), I thought the hotel was very nice. Our room was unexpectedly upgraded and it was one bedroom w/king bed and living room w/queen pull-out for my kids. Small kitchen. Nice bathroom. Washer/dryer too (I think all rooms are suites like this). I slept like a baby and I usually have trouble in hotels - the bed and sheets were really comfortable and the room was very quiet and cool. Nice view on 10th floor overlooking ocean across the street and causeway right next door. The pool is little but nice with very comfortable and high-end chairs/loungers to relax. Very pretty sitting area out back by waterway. Small walk to ocean beach. Breakfast in hotel restaurant was okay - what you would expect. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed twice here initially in a junior suite and then in a Lugano suite both with views of the intracoastal.

The rooms are really nice with full kitchen, huge refridgerator, dish washer, wash mashine and dryer. Unfortunately all appliances are extremely noisy. The bed is very comfy. However it would be time to replace the TVs with larger ones. The remote controls were also difficult to use as often nothing happened when you pressed a button.

The views are fantastic and the balcony has a glass barrier (instead of concrete). My son loved that as he could watch the boats the whole day.

If you want to go to thr beach you can walk in less than 10 mins which is great. Someone wrote that there 4-6 blocks. That is BS. It is exactly two blocks and one traffic light away.

We had an issue with the dishwasher where the staff didn't deliver s good service as they just came to check it every day but didn't fix it. Eventually the front desk manager waived the valet fees and upgraded us on the second stay. I have asked numerous times for rooms without connecting doors and we were promised thatse wooild get onefor the second stay but we got again a connecting room. So apparently the hotel has too many if them.

The valet parking was a little bit annoying for us as the had only one lane in front of the hotel. So whenevef you needed to organize something in the car or program the satnav and a second car would stop behind you then you had to rush otherwise everyone had to wait.

However this is my prefered hotel for future stays in FLL.

The hotel is very clean and the rooms are beautiful. We got a room #721 that had a very bad view at first but they were able to move us to a stunning view when we complained. The service and hospitality from the bellmen to the front desk to the Concierge, Marianne was impeccable. Anything we wanted, they immediately helped us. The restaurant on the property Da Campo Osteria was phenomenal for lunch and dinner but the breakfast buffet was mediocre at best. Still, the staff at the restaurant was friendly and excellent. Try the Risotto Pescatore! Outstanding and the portions are huge! It's peaceful and picturesque and we will definitely stay here again. It may be out a ways from everything but they have a courtesy shuttle that will take you within a 3 mile radius and a beach buggy to take you the 2 blocks to the beach so no need to rent a car.

Room Tip: Corner suites like room 721 only give you a sliver of the intracoastal waterway so after you book, c...

Great hotel for the money. This hotel isnt beachfront and walking distrance to beach was a little lengthy (4-6) blocks. Surrounding area had good bars but far from nightlife (dancing/clubs) if you dont rent a car. Id recommed requesting an intercostal view. Rooms were spacious and beautiful. In house restaurant was excellent. If this place was beachfront it'd be perfect.

Room Tip: Request intercoastal view and get a suite!!!!

Il Lugano is a 10 story 180+ room hotel on the Intercoastal on Ft Lauderdales Galt Mile. The rooms (small suites actually) feature kitchens and washer dryers so a medium or longer stay would work well. The balconies on the intercoastal side afford great boat views and afternoon sun. The service and food are very good. The health club is smallish but does contain a Precor s3.45 machine which provides numerous upper and lower body exercises. The free wi-fi works well and the hotel is only 3 blocks from the beach. The major problem is that the building blocks the sun from the pool until about 1 p.m.

Room Tip: Stay on the intercoastal side. The views are better.
