This hotel is beautifully appointed and in a good location. The staff provides great service. The room we stayed in was a suite with a bedroom and livingroom/diningroom with a kitchen. The bathroom was large and was the very nicest bathroom we have ever seen in a hotel - large shower with a clear glass wall. The room had a balcony which overlooked the pool area and with views of downtown Ft. Lauderdale, the Intercoastal Waterway and the Ocean. The hotel had ample amenities including pool, exercise room, and business center. An excellent continental breakfast was provided) this may have been becuase we are Hilton Honors members or because it was a holiday period. The hotel is walking distance to many restaurants and the beach, but is fairly far away from the airport and cruise port. About our only complaint is that transportation to these is rather expensive - in the range of $30 to 40 - and it would be a great enhancement for the hotel to provide local transportation as do some other properties.
