4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Hotel is nice, very clean and actually has a great location. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast at the restaurant could be better but it really doesn't take off anything from the experience of actually staying. The area is nice, even if you're not driving, there are nice restaurants to look after or rent a bike to go through... More

Delightful and charming in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale's nightlife. We thoroughly enjoyed stepping out the front door and joining the excitement on Las Olas Blvd. The sidewalk dining and entertainment was so enjoyable. This is the place to be in Ft. Lauderdale at night. The hotel has so much charm. The outdoor patio garden is truly an oasis. The... More

Booked this on Expedia and it was listed as 3.5 stars which can sometimes be right on but usually does not live up to it. Awesome property with a great bar and restaurants on site. Starbucks two blocks away, beach within walking distance. Zach Lilly checked me in and was gracious enough to allow my daughter's dog to come up... More

I really don't know what is better, the location of the hotel or the hotel itself. Situated right on Las Olas Blvd, which is the heart of the action in Fort Lauderdale. Its right next to the river and there are so many eateries around it, you will be spoilt for choices, the beach is about 2.5 miles away, you... More

This hotel is right in the middle of all the action of Las Olas. I stayed Fri, Sat & Sun and on Fri and Sat, there was alot of singing and dancing right outside the hotel entrance. The pool is beautiful and faces the river with the million dollar boats going by. Only a 5 minute walk to the water... More

Stayed here for half leisure and half business. Every person we came into contact with ( and it was quite a few); due to a stolen handbag (not from the hotel.) The entire staff was friendly and happy and went above and beyond! Especially Terry a the front desk and (I forgot his name but at the back bar.) We'll... More

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and thought it was excellent. First, it's prime location in the heart of Las Olas is the first plus. Parked the car and did not have to use it all weekend. The staff was super friendly and the room was beautiful and spacious. We got such a great rate that I questioned it initially... More

My boyfriend and I visited this fine establishment last month as locals and have to say 5 star on our experience. We had an executive room with a balcony overlooking the waterway. The room was top notch and very spacious. The professionalism and friendliness of all staff at the hotel was exceptional. We also had the chance to eat at... More

Great room for a business breakfast. Especially in the back of the restaurant. Plenty of space between the tables. The service was good, the breakfast was not. Coffee wasn't hot, the breakfast was served cool. You couldn't get the fork thru the potatoes, all stuck together. Very tired bacon. My daughter in law was in the hotel that evening for... More
