We stayed at what was the Il Lugano hotel for two nights before a cruise, and it was a perfect place to stay. We learned on arrival that Marriott had acquired the property just before our stay. Not sure if anything is going to change there, but one perk we got with the change was breakfast included every morning. They... More

I was a little leary of this hotel after reading some of the earlier reviews, as we had this reservation booked for quite a while when it was the Il Lugano. I am pleased to say that the recent reviews are very true to form. We had an excellent room, great view, and fantastic service for our pre cruise stay.... More

The hotel was good, the rooms were clean and the location was perfect for shopping at the Galleria mall (shuttle right outside the hotel) and access to our cruise. However, the WiFi was not working the entire two days we were there (they gave us breakfast instead) and I think that they are understaffed to deal with the frequent influx... More

It first got my attention by its name "Il lugano". sounded like the lake between Italy and Switzerland.. I wondered if it was that interesting and diverse . I wanted something delicate, as I was reaching the end of a rough year. so i decided to give it a shot. Sure enough, the people there made me feel like I... More

fantastic hotel and so pleased we chose this one. We had one of the inter coastal waterway views and the suite was enormous. All of the staff were so helpful and friendly. We used the courtesy transport a couple of times which worked well and the water taxi leaves from just outside which is a great way to get to... More

One of our party of 6 booked this Inn via an internet bid type service. We weren't sure what to expect. We were all delighted with the suites we were assigned to as well as the views of both the ocean and the Intracoastal. What a great beginning to our first ever cruise!

My wife and I stayed here at the end of our honeymoon cruise and loved it! We were upgraded from a standard suite to a junior suite that over-looked the intracoastal water way and we spent most of our time on the balcony. The sunsets and views were spectacular! The room was very spacious with a fully stocked kitchen (full-size... More

We booked this hotel through Priceline, something we don't usually do, but have stayed in Fort Lauderdale several times and didn't really care where we stayed. We were pleasantly surprised. When you first walk in the lobby is small, but nicely decorated. The other reviews are correct, the lobby bar was shut down. But this was not a huge deal... More

My husband and I stayed Nov 16-17 after a cruise so we arrived very early in the morning.
