“Re: WONDERFUL GETAWAY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

I recently stayed her the weekend of 07/18-07/20 in a studio apartment. The room had everything you needed all the way down to seasonings for cooking. We did experience a slight malfunction in our room during our stay but it was quickly fixed and was treated very kindly. The hotel is sooo relaxing and has an amazing view of the intercoastal. The pool was very nice and they even had floats for you to use. The property itself is exceptionally maintained and has very unique and personal touches that you would never find at any of the bigger hotels. It was soo amazing I have already booked another weekend getaway for august. If you are looking for a quiet relaxing apartment hotel this is the way to go. Stay away from the bigger chains and give these smaller mom and pop places a try, you will be greatly surprised.

Thank you for your kind review. Most of our guests have a busy schedule once they leave the tranquility of our property and we so appreciate them taking the time to leave feedback for those who have not yet found us. We look forward to your next visit.

Our stay was exceptional. I loved the large windows,platform bed and full kitchen. The one bedroom was very spacious. Wifi and cable! The grounds were so quaint with so many special touches. You have the best of both worlds with the intercoastal only steps away...we could have sat on the deck all night. It always seemed secluded even with others there. It felt like we lived here and were just out back watching the yachts pass by. The pool was clean, cool and inviting. The beach is only a short walk away for an incredible sunrise. The plus,plus,plus was being able to catch the water taxi from the deck and after a full day, be dropped off there. So many people asked us about the hotel and we were eager to share. We will be back soon!

Fantastic location alongside the channel, with panorama view from the living room. Very nice and attentive management. If you are looking for a affordable place with a personal touch, this is the place to go.

Room Tip: Any room at the west side towards the channel is great

Fantastic location, great service, incredible value. We thoroughly enjoyed our little two day getaway. Loved the neighborhood, and we were able to use our paddleboards right off the deck. Russell and his partner are great hosts. We'll be back soon.

It is so helpful for a Boutique Hotel such as ours to receive feedback and reviews from our guests. It helps us to improve and is a guide for guests thinking of visiting. Jacksonville is close enough that we hope you will return soon. You were perfect guests. We will strive to be the perfect getaway for a weekend or longer. Thank you.

We came to Fort Lauderdale for a week to spend time with friends who moved there and they recommended the Manhattan Tower Apartments. We couldn't have been happier. Our roomy 2 bedroom looked out on the Intracoastal and when it was windy we would sit in our living room and watch all the incredible boats go by. Evenings we barbecued with our friends on the outside terrace. Russel and Joe are excellent hosts and made sure we had a wonderful time.

Room Tip: definitely try to get a room that faces the intracoastal if you can!

This was our fifth time at the Manhattan Tower. It is a great place to stay, just 10 min walk from the beach. It is peaceful, relaxing with the artistic touch. Over the years, we stayed in three different units and enjoyed every single one. Every unit has its own charm and schmeck (character). Units are clean, with very comfortable beds and fully stocked kitchens. We will be back! It feels like second home!

We just had our first stay at Manhattan Towers. It is a wonderful property. The owners take great pride in it and it shows. Every apartment is a little different but are fully stocked for anyone's visit. You can tell quality has been used in decorating the property.
This was our first visit, but hopefully we'll have many more.

Room Tip: While all the rooms aren't facing the waterway, the patio out in front invites you to sit and en...
