“Great location, cute place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Had to stay here at the last minute due to Hurricane Sandy and not being able to get home. I wouldnt have picked any other spot. The location was great, right on the beach, about 20 minutes from the airport, and a 5 minutes drive to sunset blvd where there were tons of restaurants, bars, etc.

We had a room on the 5th floor, and it was great. It was clean, the bed was comfortable, and we had a minifridge. The bathroom was just ok, however learned that we had booked the room right before the bathroom was about to be redone. It was fine though.
The view from our balcony was beautiful, both during the day and at night.
The beach was right there, and they offered towels and lounge chairs which was great.
They also have a little restaurant attached to it, and the food was AMAZING. Everything we ate there was great :) And of course the views were great as well.
There was a pool, but we didnt go in it. I did feel the water though, and it was so warm!

The staff was excellent. Our cable box was messing up a bit, and they guy at the front desk changed it out for us! They were helpful in suggesting things to do around the area, and overall very nice.
We rented a car and drove around the area and checked out a bunch of different bars and sports on the beach. Like I said, the location was great. There is a water taxi that stop right by the hotel as well, in case you don't/cant rent a car. I would suggest renting a car if you are staying there for more than 2 days.

I would definitely stay here again as the price was right, and the location and staff were excellent.

Location is great, with just a beach separating the hotel and its small dining terrace form the ocean and multiple good bars and restaurants in the close proximity. All the people in the hotel are very friendly and willing to go extra mile to help you with any request. Rooms are large and clean, all facing the ocean. Restaurant is not fancy and has just beer and wine in the bar, but it is quite good for breakfast. Next door property has a good restaurant with full bar and also a great terrace. We’ll most definitely stay there again.

We loved it here. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Not five star but staff are friendly and the small issue we had was immediately sorted. All rooms face the sea so you can see the sun rise. Yes the computer in the reception was slow,but I was thankful it was always available to use. Just one of the nicest small hotels I have stayed in. We hope to return next year.

Room Tip: All rooms should be good as they all face the sea

We had a fantastic week in Ft. Lauderdale, FL at the Sun Tower. The staff is so very friendly and accomadating and the housekeeping staff were too. We loved the fact that when we got up in the morning we went on our balcony greeted by the sun and when we went down the elevator we walked directly onto the beach. No road to cross. They have beach lounges, towels and umbrellas for us and if we wanted more they were able to put them up for us. Then the pool area is just a short walk away and very relaxing with lounges and tables too. Just the right size all around as we never felt lost as you do in a mega hotel. They have a restaurant on the patio on the beach serving delicious meals, and the oh so ever needed... cocktails. Did I mention that the parking spot is free ! Everyone else charges. There is even a Broward Bicycle rental stop in front. Easy access to the local bus routes too and taxis. I would like to see free WiFi throughout the hotel, not only at the pool area. Otherwise an excellent choice, a friendly staff and dynamic location. Yes, I would go again.

Room Tip: All rooms are ocean front...can't really go wrong with any room, just depends on what you are l...

What a great accomodating staff. From the desk to the kitchen all the people working hear couldn't be any better. They really seamed to care about your stay. We were there for a small wedding and I can't think a what a better place to have a beach wedding. The small intimate size of the hotel made it perfect to enjoy the company of the other guest of the wedding, No searching you would just run into them. The entire complex is updated and fresh. Pool and beach area are very well kept. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Would definately visit again.
All rooms have a great ocean view. The only reason I did not rate it excellent was of beer and wine only.

Great place for a romantic getaway! All rooms are ocean front. Leave your balcony door open to hear the waves breaking on the beach. Staff was always helpful, attentive & friendly. Great breakfast on the beach. We will be back.

We found our new favorite hotel in Ft. Lauderdale! From the moment we walked in until we left everything was excellent. It is directly on the sand. Our room had a small balcony that overlooked the beach. It was large and comfortable and had a refridgerator and microwave. The bathroom had all the amenities although the hairdryer was in a bag in the closet . The staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a great restaurant where we had dinner and breakfast. There's a lovely pool but we spent time on the beach. The only problem I could see is the parking area is very small but we had no trouble finding a place to park. We highly recommend this hotel.
