Stayed here for 2 nights before departing on a cruise. The rooms, to me, are somewhat pricy for a BW but are - from what I could tell - good value in Fort Lauderdale. It was a quick cab ride from FLL to the hotel, which is in comfortable walking distance from restaurants and shops and a lovely beach park. The service from the front desk staff and breakfast room staff was excellent. The hotel is rather tired in appearance, but but we didn't choose it for the decor and everything we saw looked clean - that's what matters. The breakfast offers a very good selection of items and, unlike many places we have stayed, has a good amount of seating and tables to accommodate the guests. The bartender was friendly and our frozen margaritas were tasty.
The beach is < five minute walk (hang a left upon exiting the lobby, walk past the Sheraton and you'll be in the beach park) and the water was lovely! We enjoyed dinner at Bahia Cabana (another close walk) and appies on the patio at Dos Caminos, which is in the Sheraton (you'll pass it on your way to the beach).
I would have no hesitation recommending this as a decent place to stay - you cannot beat the location; however, if you are more concerned about aesthetics or being "seen" in the "right" type of place, this hotel might not be a comfortable fit and you may want to look elsewhere.
