This hotel was so nice! The rooms were so clean, they were like new. The staff was friendly & attentive. We stayed here to facilitate our 7:00 am flight out of Ft. Lauderdale and I was not disappointed in any way. Free parking & morning breakfast, and only a few minutes drive from the airport. Totally exceeded my expectations!

I got in at 2am from out of town for a meeting, and the front attend was very helpful and polite. The rooms are extra clean with plush pillows.

I recently needed a hotel in Fort Lauderdale due to some last minute itinerary changes. Despite the fact we were in town to depart on a cruise, I did not want to stay at any of the hotels near the cruise port. Read lots of reviews regarding bed bugs at those hotels.
