Nice, comfortable stay. Everything is very white in the hotel, which is soothing and spa-like. Booked for a great rate on a last minute app; staff informed us at check in that there would be a party Friday and Saturday that would bring some noise. She offered lower floor options with a less spectacular view but we opted for the... More

I loved this hotel. Very modern and comfortable. The only thing I didn't like was not knowing you HAD to use the valet parking. I booked on hotels.com and this was not mentioned. ($28.00). I would have been prepared with cash and a tip.

Attentive staff. Great beach and ocean views. Food a bit pricey but probably typical of the market area. Guest rooms are spacious. Bathroom was small but adequate. Unusual combination of wonderful beach resort within a $20 cab fare (15 minutes) to a major international airport.

Very clean with all white furnishings. Beautiful views of the ocean from your room. Right on the A1A beachfront a great place for sun and surf. Ordered breakfast to our room, a little pricy but overall it was good.

As you can tell by the review title, I have stayed at this hotel for many years. Also, I'm a former resident of Fort Lauderdale. The location cannot be beat for those who do not care to rent a car, enjoy a little walking (not that it's necessary), and love the beach and good food. The service here is second... More

The location is awesome, we stayed at the 9th floor with the long windows. It was a great view to the beach. Waking up to this view was wonderful. The restaurant and breakfast are very overprice. We didn't try them. The pool area is smaller than we thought, but nice. The room is spacious for 2. The design is modern... More

The price sounded too good to be true based on the competition nearby. However, we were quite pleased. Parking is expensive ($30 or so?). Check out lot behind hotel to save a few bucks($20 for 24 hours).
