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).

Besides the occasional loudness, the hotel was very nice. Featured a bistro, restaurant, pool, and event gatherings. I was here for a wedding and the staff was exceptionally nice, attentive, and welcoming. However, the rooms need a microwave. It's directly across the street from the beach but a 1.5 miles from the strip of Fort Lauderdale.

The hotel is modern, fresh and reasonably clean. The location just to the beach is great, with an excellent view from many of the rooms. There are a few cafes/pubs nearby and no more than a 10 minute walk to the nearby (and decent sized) mall which boost several restaurants. This part of the beach strip is perhaps not the... More

I love the concept of this hotel, all the rooms have an ocean view and are very modern and stylish. The staff is super friendy. One of the days we stayed there, we slept in until about 3 p.m. so we thought it would be too late to get our room cleaned. To our surprise when we came back from... More
