Great location! Great Staff (from Front Desk to Housekeeping). One could not ask for a better location. Everything within walking distance. Great shuttle service to the beach and for your boat lovers, the Water Taxi is the way to see the inter-coastal waters!

This hotel was perfect for our family pre-cruise stay! There are restaurants and shops in walking distance, the Sun Trolley that runs around town and to the beach for $1 per trip ( I do want to interject here and say DO NOT get the day pass if you plan on going to the beach, they stamp your hand and...

Juan Delapiedra went above and beyond the call of duty during our stay. Please accept this as a recommendation of your hotel due to his actions. The hotel itself is lovely, clean and professional. Thank you

I chose this hotel because I wanted to be close to the airport. This was a very, clean hotel and we were able to check in around 2:00 p.m. Two miles from the beaches, plenty of restaurants, we drove and did a little shopping. Kind of an unusual room, long and it had a pull out table under the dresser.... More

Well, I stayed here for 6 nights. I was attending a Business Conference at the Convention Center which is in walking distance more than a block a way. The blocks are also long blocks so bear that in mind. The hotel is nothing to jump about, the best thing is the Customer Service which was great based on my experience.... More

This hotel is very clean, new decor, lots of space in the rooms, and the beds are incredibly comfortable. Nice, big bathroom & shower head, too. The location is less than a mile to the airport so it is perfect for that last night before flying out, or the first night on flying in. Just note that there is no... More

We chose this hotel because it had good reviews and it was close to the Sun Trolley line and Port Everglades. On the outside the hotel seems ok, but when we opened the door to our room it was very humid and had an odd musty smell. The space was dark and the oversized dark furnishings didn't help the situation.... More
