What more can I say? If you want to head to Ft.Lauderdale Beach for a chill weekend or even longer, stay here. It is perfectly located, only about 6 miles from the Ft.Lauderdale Airport and right on the Beach. There are restaurant and bar facilities in the Hotel proper and access to more on foot , a short walk, or bike ride away. Do NOT bring a car unless you need it for other events. Parking is very expensive and the traffic in the immediate area is total gridlock most of the time. My advice: take a cab from the airport (16-20$) and stay put. Looks like the Hotel has been refurbished, and has a tasteful designed interior. Rugs could be improved, but with beach traffic of sandals and what-not, it's acceptable. I do not recommend walking barefoot on any hotel room carpeting though. The Service is superb. The registration, concierge and restaurant staff are extremely helpful and accomodating. I'd give the rooms a 3 star, but nothing to complain about. There are smoking and non-smoking and the non-smoking is clean, and I could never smell any smoke from adjacent rooms. If you specify non-smoking with your reservaton this will NOT be a problem. Breezes coffee shop on the main level has very nice breakfasts and I did have some appetizers there with evening drinks and the food was outstanding. My only complaint: The Elevator service is deplorable. You will wait forever for the lift. Take stairs if you can. Overall, at this price level, I'd highly recommend this Hotel, for a brief stay, if being adjacent to the Beach is important to you. Perfect weekend getaway.
