We stayed at this hotel for 6 days, and loved every minute of it. It is spotless and very well kept. The pool area is an oasis, with loungers towels cushions and surrounded by trees and plants. it was lovely to sit out there in the evening. Breakfast was good you could help yourself to whatever you wanted, and there... More

I'll start my review with the positives....the hotel is very clean and well kept, the choice of food for breakfast was very good though it could get a little cramped in the small kitchen with several people all trying to get their breakfasts. There are washing machines in the same room but i wasn't put off by that...they were never... More

Madam, You already wrote one review about your stay and I'll repeat to you as before. You and your husband started your stay being rude to myself and others at the hotel about your I-Pads not able to get service. That seemed to be all you cared about at the time. You didn't like the wi fi and you didn't... More

Walt was a wonderful host. We were in room 5 which is ground floor around toward the back. The room was VERY small with limited space for bags and belongs. Bedding and linens were of good quality and bed was firm and comfortable. Bathroom was big enough with lovely finishes. If you are expecting a home cooked and served breakfast,... More

Thank you for the review of 15 FTL Hotel. Now that was a fair and good written review. With the hotel running at a 95 to 100 % occupancy rate we do our best to keep "almost" everyone happy if we can. There will always be those people that just aren't happy in life. Good reviews as well as bad... More

Thank you for your review. I agree that maybe you should have asked to cancel your reservation with 15 FTL Hotel and found another hotel. We do allow that for free. I'd rather you stay where you get the things you want in a hotel to make you happy. Morning and Departure Greetings work both ways for guests and employees... More

Upon walking through the front gates we were in our own little paradise. The pictures on the web site does not do this place justice. The grounds were so pretty and clean. We were surrounded by palm trees and all sorts of plants. The deck/pool was immaculate. Bright colorful fresh beach towels on the lounge chairs every day. Our room... More

We will always stay at 15FTL when we travel to Fort Lauderdale. It is as clean as a five star hotel and twice as charming.

We were looking for a place to just relax in the Ft. Lauderdale area while visiting family, and hit the jackpot with 15FTL! The manager's (Walt) concern for our comfort and contentment while guests there was without equal.
