I hate to tell everyone how great The Pillars is, what a gem of a hotel, because I want there to be room for us when we go back. The service is impeccable, the dining at Secret Garden good enough for even the neighboring Ritz to recommend to its guests (as we were told by a Ritz employee), and the... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The room we stayed was near the front door. It was a bit noisy as we could hear the people taking outside of our room. There was an incident that the sewage line backup from the shower drain during our last night stay. We smelled something funny at middle of the night... More

Had a one night stay here on our way to the Keys from Orlando. The hotel is quite small but very nicely decorated and has a really nice atmosphere with nice efficient staff at the check in desk. We were given a ground floor room by the side of the pool which was perfect for us. The bed was comfortable... More

We live and work in Fort Lauderdale and, for many years, have recommended the Pillars to friends and family visiting us. Their expectations were always exceeded and we heard rave reviews. While we have enjoyed the outstanding dining at the Secret Garden many times, this was our first stay at the Pillars. Our mini-vacation at The Pillars was truly exceptional.... More

Our second 3 day pre-cruise stay at The Pillars was comfortable but not as personal as last year. There appears to have been a change in the senior management. Whilst the front desk service was very professional it was not as friendly and engaging as last year. The room was great and any problems were dealt with speedily and to... More

Hello David, Thank you for your comments. We are very happy with the high marks you gave us in each of the 6 categories but 1. Overall this was an average of over 4. It is disappointing though that you rated us a 3 overall. Most important we are very sorry that your experience was less than that of your... More

Stayed for a 3 night pre cruise holiday with 2 other couples for my 50th birthday. Great staff and food although it's expensive you get what you pay for. Fantastic location and has a real personal touch to it as I think they only have 13 standard rooms plus a couple of suites. Highly recommended for a short stay in... More

The Pillars because we knew about its high Conde Nast ranking. Although we had eaten at their Secret Garden dining venue on many occasions we had never stayed in the hotel itself. We arrived in the early afternoon and were greeted with a choice of welcome drinks which ranged from classic bubbly to just plain old water. Once unpacked we... More

Our recent visit to the Pillars Hotel was as perfect as we have come to expect, after visiting this peaceful oasis severeal times over the years. We enjoy the beautiful ambience tucked away behind the busy main road and find the staff at the hotel very accommodating, helpful and friendly. The rooms are always extremely clean which is a big...

This is a lovely small hotel, great staff, and a good location to enjoy Lauderdale but it has a serious flaw. The hotel allows smoking on the grounds which can be very annoying if you want to enjoy seating outside. We wanted to have dinner outside our room but the people next to us were smoking like a chimney and... More

We booked The Pillars last-minute through Travelocity and could not have been happier with our choice. We were immediately welcomed with a drink and walked down to the intracoastal to check out the view. It was amazing. The pool was just the right size with a good number of chairs and loungers. We ended up walking around Fort Lauderdale while... More
