Upon my arrival at the front desk, my party and I were greeted by Valeska. The other party's... More

I stayed at the hotel during a weekend business trip to the Ft Lauderdale area. Compared to the prices of other hotel rooms that weekend, this place was a bargain. The room was clean and comfortable with updated decor. The hotel also provided a nice free breakfast buffet - not just a continental breakfast with old donuts either. I would... More

I had to work in Hollywood, FL and EVERYTHING was booked, so I settled for this hotel at the advice of my travel agent. I didn't have any problems finding the hotel but it was far away from almost everything. I had to drive at least 15 minutes to get to activities. The hotel appears to be undergoing renovations.
