I recently stayed at the hotel while taking a vacation with my husband. Our room could have been a little quieter, but the view was wonderful! There is good shopping, dining and access to the beach at this hotel's location. We spent a great deal of time at the pool bar with Jill. She was great! She remebered our orders,... More

It's noisy, both from within and the noise that's endemic to Fort Lauderdale beach. The surrounding neighborhood is a collection of tattoo parlors, bars and run down restaurants. A good place to watch junkies on the street.

Joe (The night mgr) at B Ocean Hotel Ft Lauderdale was super friendly and helpful. He gave me a full tour of this magnificent boutique hotel thats right on the beach. If you are looking for the newest hottest all suite hotel with amazing views i definitely recommend B Ocean. Thanks Joe! Scott Meszaros

From the Concierge { Tiffany} and {Nicholas} , the Wait Staff in the Bistro{Lilly} to the ladies in Housekeeping, couldn't have asked for more. All were professional, courteous and friendly. Tiffany at the front desk was particularly helpful with a big smile on her face. Loved the view from the room and the beds were awesome. My friends and I... More

My spouse and I, along with another couple stayed at this hotel from April 10-14. This hotel has a great location and for the most part the staff that we encountered were very friendly. We had 2 rooms on the 6th floor. Rooms were really nice with a great view. Like others have mentioned, things we didn't like about this... More

The best of the best. The curve windows in the room made me feel like I was in the middle of the ocean. Just breath taking. The beds were made for a queen so comfortable better than home. Most of all the staff was outstanding. They went out of the way to do all they could for everyone. Tiffany really... More

I'm very familiar with hotels in Fort Lauderdale. The Good Stuff: The transformation from the old, abandoned Holiday Inn is incredible! Public areas are bueatiful, clean and smell nice. Front desk and restaurant service staff all super nice and professional. Rooms are bright, modern, functional with quality bedding. Pool area is well designed with pretty cabanas and comfy seating options.... More

Just returned from Friday to Sunday stay in relaxed, sunny Ft. Lauderdale which was a welcome relief from NYC. We found the B hotel to be delightful. The staff was warm and attentive. Loved the incredibly comfortable king-sized bed. Only three spring break-types spotted but otherwise the hotel has more of an adult/families modern feel. A staff member referred us... More

This new hotel, while aesthetically pleasing has a lot of work to do to get up to snuff. Not surprisingly the rooms don't have balconies which is fine but you can't even open the windows in the rooms. So you have this amazing ocean view but can't even really enjoy it. On top of that our room was missing all... More
