This place put a total damper on the end of my wedding cruise vacation. It doesn't matter where I vacation, I will usually only book a Marriott property. It was between this hotel and the Ritz Carlton, but the reviews on Tripadvisor piqued my interest and I decided to venture out and use Il Lugano as our post cruise stay.... More

Dear Valued Traveler, I must first apologize for your experience here at Il Lugano. The hotel was sold but the incredible new ownership is looking to make this property a more comfortable, refined and warm location for all travelers.

If you look at most of the high reviews from this hotel, most seem to be from locals having a staycation or from long ago. BELIVE ALL THE RECENT REVIEWS from the last two months. There was a management change, and things are now much different than described here or on the website. I was returning from a long work... More

False advertising plain and simple. Hotel went into bankruptcy and was sold two weeks ago. Yet they still list the amenities on their site, specifically the lobby bar and bar menu. The general manager, Seth, said the were "not allowed" to take down the amenity list until the property official transferred and closed with the new owners. Especially for a... More

Had a great recent stay at the Il Lugano. Great hotel, but most impressive is their staff. Warm, accomidating, and informed. I particularly have to give props to Lindsay, the bartender (among other responsibilities). She was charming, comfortable to talk to and happy to answer the many questions I had about the area. If I owned a hotel, she is... More
