“We had a great birthday/pre-cruise stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

We stayed at the Premier Hotel prior to going on a cruise for my husband's 60th birthday. We arrived later than we thought we would because our cabbie couldn't find the hotel, but when I called the hotel, Fred helped with clear directions. Fred immediately took our luggage up to our room on the third floor and then came back and he and his father, Mario, got us checked in. We had a nice conversation with both of them and then we were off to a restaurant where I had reservations for my husband's special birthday dinner. When I asked Fred if he would call a cab for us, he said he'd take us to the restaurant! That was just so nice and special--I couldn't believe it--I had never had that happen before! They did several other things for us during our stay that I felt were over and above the call of duty.

The room we stayed in was spacious, with 2 beds, a kitchen, dining table with 4 chairs, nice tv, large closet, 2 comfy chairs. (Most hotels don't have anyplace to sit except for the bed). The beds were very comfortable and the sheets were very soft. The hotel is older and there are a few properties nearby that are abandoned, but we never felt scared or worried for our safety. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance and the beach is basically across the street. There is a nice clean pool on the property, but we didn't have a chance to use it.

Yes, the place is dated and the humidity and proximity to the ocean have caused extra wear and tear, so if you are picky, don't stay at The Premier. But if you want a hotel with the nicest, friendliest owners, this is the place for you! We had a great stay and I would go back in a minute as long as the Farber's own the hotel!

We are repeat visitors to the Premiere and recommend the property to family and friends who have also now made return trips. The location is fantastic, easy to stay without a car and walk or take public transportaiton anywhere you want to go (there is a trolly stop right by the motel). The rooms are freshly decorated and clean with new memory foam beds. The pool area is nice and well kept. All of these accolades combined with very resonable rates make staying a no brainer, but what really sets Premiere apart from the others (especially the large corporate chains) is the atmosphere and little extras. Staff are dedicated to making your experience memorable - offering tips about dining, attractions and transportation. In addition the motel maintains a large library of DVDs to borrow in your room which is equipped with a flat screen TV and DVD, beach chairs guests can borrow and beach toys and pool floats for the kiddos. Fred and the staff do an amazing job at making you feel at home and like part of the family - I loved that a few weeks after my father visited we arrived and he asked if my Dad enjoyed his trip. You simply don't get that at other chains.

This is our home away from home in Ft. Lauderdale!

A perfect stay for my husband's birthday who was raised in Ft Lauderdale. Room was very clean with plenty of space and a full kitchen. We had asked for a room with an ocean view and were given one on the top floor with a view of the ocean from our bed! The staff was so friendly! If you're looking for a plce to stay within walking distance to the beach and restaurants, with the charm of an older hotel and personal attention - this is it!

When coming to Fort Lauderdale for a couple days before and after my cruise I was recommended The Premiere Hotel by good friends. The Premiere Hotel is run and operated the way hotels should be but rarely ever do. We were warmly greeted and welcomed by name. Our room for the first part of our stay was larger than we booked with ample space to spread out before we journeyed at sea in a small cruise ship cabin. AND THE BEDS...WOW...I haven't felt this AMAZING in a bed ANYWHERE in this long, if ever! The mattress' are sooo luxurious and soft, but not too soft. The sheets were a nice thread count and are bright white. The comforter was so cozy and clean feeling. There was no hiding pieces of the bed from touching your skin at The Premiere. I felt so at home. The rooms we stayed in each had big TVs and kitchens. The lobby has hundreds of DVDs you can borrow and watch in your room if you desire. The towels are soft and smell good. I cannot say enough about how awesome the family is that owns the hotel. They carried our suitcases to our rooms and smiled the whole time. Fred was so kind and accommodating. He actually listened to what you told him and followed back up the next day. I love families and the positive family vibe you get when staying at The Premiere makes you feel like you're instantly part of the family. I 100% will be coming back to The Premiere next year when I return and would absolutely recommend this place to anyone and everyone. Thank you Premiere for raising the bar!

We stayed in this hotel with our 13-year-old children. We all appreciated the place, its cleanliness, the courtesy of the employees and the closeness with the beach. Excellent choice which we recommend to all. You will not be disappointed.
