Being a Starwood platinum member I still like to read the review prior to booking a hotel stay and this hotel was up to the vast majority of previous reviews. Arrived and was very cordially greeted at the door and then at the front desk, it was too early to be checked in but they still offered their help.
Unfortunately I can't remember the manager or assistant manager at the front desk but she was great, I had preciously tried to be upgraded to a suite and she offered to see what she could do since the hotel was full, ended up I received the upgrade, it was great.
Very well located, close to restaurants and shops, bus stop, trolley stop right at the hotel adn the free complimentary lounge chairs were very appreciated on the beach.
I guess the only negative but wasn't a big one since we were not in a hurry anyhow, was the service at the restaurant (Shula's) as mentioned by a few others but the food was great, a little expensive but it is a resort hotel after all.
Would definitely go back when in Fort Lauderdale.
One last remark, i'm not good with remembering names but the person who took care of our room during our stay (five nights) was great and made certain we didn't miss anything, sorry for not remembering your name.
