“Pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

My husband chose this hotel because he thought that it was on the beach. Well, its across the road from the beach and is on the bay side, which was fine with us since we spent most of our days outside. Now we know why the price was much lower than the other hotels (which is better than spending $400/night on the beach). We had a double balcony, so we had both the bay and ocean view. I was disappointed to see that a giant high rise hotel across the street blocked some of the ocean view but we still could see it from our balcony. Very nice room, with modern furniture. Close to the boardwalk and other restaurants in the area. The water taxi also starts and stops at our hotel, so that was very useful for us since we had planned a day trip to Ft. Lauderdale. We liked the cabana place, and the food was good. We didn't get a chance to try out the bistro, but we should have for breakfast before we left. Very quiet rooms and the beds were comfortable. I also liked the Templespa samples that they left in the room. I put those to good use during my stay. It did help me relax, so that was unexpected.

Elizabeth at the front desk is amazing and very pleasant to deal with. The hotel was very nice and I had no major concerns. The chase lounge in my room (934) appeared to be heavily soiled and stained. The was also an issue with room keys not working and needing to be reprogrammed. The pool area is nice and.on the intercoastal. It nice to see the boats going by as you relax by the pool or tiki bar. Excellent customer service, a clean room, comfy bed and great location made this a nice stay. As a Platinum member I would recommend this property.

Went there for an event and reminded us that there places close to us, that we can still enjoy!
This was a very affordable place to stay, it offered a Bistro for dinner or breakfast and a "pool" cabana place to eat.
This hotel is a light deco design and they are re-modeling as we stayed there.
Clean rooms and good shampoo, conditioner and soap...The room had a balcony, which is a good selling point.
Now, it is on the intra coastal and not on the beach...You have to carry whatever it is you need and walk across ocean drive in Hollywood and then get to the beach.
Parking is a steep $19.00 for valet per day and there is a public parking garage, about a block or so away, to park if you do not mind walking.
Overall, it is a good economical Hotel to stay, if you are on the saving mood.
Manny at the cabana bar, was the person to relate to.

Room Tip: If you want to save some money, this is a good choice, if you are staying in this area.

The room was very clean and we had a very nice time there. It was a very calm hotel, perfect to relax and have a great time in family. The staff gave us an excellent service (Elizabeth was the best one! She gave us 2 Starbuck coffee for free and gave us the permission to stay in the room until 3 pm instead of 11am! ) I really recommend this hotel ! The only negative point is that the restaurant in the hotel is a bit expensive.. but there's a lot of other restaurants on A1A !

We spent 6 days at this hotel on a short vacation. The hotel was nice, friendly staff, big rooms, big beds with nice pillows. The pool is very big. I liked the quality of the sleep.
The reasons for not giving it 5 points are two: The cleaning of the hallway was not good, there was a small stick in front of my room door for two days. The day I was leaving the were changing the carpet. Perhaps that was the reason for not cleaning it. The other point that left me unhappy was that the bellboy treated my luggage as basketballs, throwing them with much enthusiasm. I didn't like to see my backpack with my new computer thrown into the trunk of the car.
