“3 day stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

It was magical - on this our second stay.
Staff are immaculate & very attentive.
Rooms are fantastic & turning down your bed/closing blinds each night is just the extra touch you would expect here.
Can't rave enough but worried it will get too popular !!!

Stayed June 2014, traveled as a couple

This was my pre-cruise hotel and although they did not offer free transportation to the cruise liner, it was a fabulous hotel. The room was outstanding and had luxurious Molton Brown toiletries. Nothing was too much trouble at this hotel and the pool area was simply lovely. My room was located on the ground floor and after coming from chilly New York to Florida, I was instantly cooled in the well air conditioned room and the pool was just steps from my door. I just wish I had stayed longer as it was a lovely hotel.

Stayed at this small but beautiful hotel in Fort Lauderdale which is located between the beach and the intercoastal waterway. On arrival we were offered complimentary wine as we were checking in and our bags were in our room by the time we got to it. The room, although small, was very well appointed with polished wooden floors, shuttered windows, ceiling fan, very nice bathroom and dressing gowns. The pool area was excellent with very comfortable padded loungers and a dock area on the intercoastal waterway from which one can get a taxi boat and cruise past the homes of the rich and famous. We ordered breakfast to have on the dock area and it was excellent. We were very well looked after, we will return and I would highly recommend this hotel if you are in Fort Lauderdale.

Room Tip: I suspect all rooms are excellently appointed and quiet.

We had a great experience post cruise at The Pillars. The staff went out of their way to help us. We had a late flight and they asked us if we needed anything before we left like a shower. We had a great large suite room with tons of room and private chairs outside and the view from their dock was great.

Spent 2 nights pre-cruise here and we will definitely be returning! Booked a 2 room suite since we were travelling w/our two teens. Checked in quite early and our room was available. We were offered a welcome cocktail - chose champagne. Our room was on the 2nd floor (114) and it was perfect! We loved the service, location and staff too. Enjoyed dinner at the Secret Garden, the hotel's onsite restaurant and it was a true highlight of our week! I was a bit nervous booking such a small property but we were very happy and look forward to a longer stay next time.

Room Tip: All rooms face the pool. The second floor rooms offer a beautiful table and chairs reserved for you...

We stayed in a corner room right on the waterway, and it couldn't have been a nicer room--a suite really. The common area is exquisite with a beautiful lounge and small bar. The staff does everything it can to make you feel at home; they are terrific. Certainly the best value I've ever received from a "hotel" room and one of the best overall experiences I've had in a hotel stay.

Read a lot of great reviews and decided to take a chance on this small (18 room) hotel. My fear was that such a small property would be too quaint and the good feedback was all coming from a vocal minority of older "snowbirds".

Happy to say this was not the case. The property has the presentation of any modern resort hotel, just scaled down to 18 rooms. Our room was just 15 feet from the pool and while I worked at the convention center, my wife enjoyed the pool facilities during the day. Service was good and the small restaurant for hotel guests and members of their "Dinner Club" was also very good. A bit pricey, but very good
