My husband and I attended a weddding in Fort Lauderdale and chose the Il Lugano as it was less than a mile from the reception site. We stayed for 3 nights in a Deluxe Room. The hotel has a very new, clean and modern feel. Our room was very comfortable. House keeping was excellent. The staff were all very accomodating. We used the shuttle service with no problems. The only problem we ran into is when we check out at 6:00 am the front desk advised me we had been charged $300 for smoking in the room (neither my husband nor I smoke). I was shocked and upset. The manager was not in so early in the morning but by 10:00 am I spoke with the manager over the phone and the charge was withdrawn.
There are several places to eat and drink within walking distance. There is a liquor store and Walgreens withing walking distance.
If you are in this area you should try Pan E Dolce, an Italian Bakery. Excellent, Excellent, Excellent. I felt as if I was in Italy again. The Bakery is less than a half mile from the hotel.
