We chose this hotel because it was a block from where we would be doing business. It appears to be largely a tourist hotel, and perhaps one that has seen better days? It was sprawling with a new and old wing, and the lobby was all noisy hard surfaces with tourists padding through it. The room was a bit dated... More

This is a very establish hotel in the middle of the "very in" Las Olas Blvd and with an attitude to match. A clue can be had with the national flags flying above the entrance. Experience traveler will be able to tell which one in particular. The rooms are renovated and the bathrooms are clean but.... You don't expect the... More

Booked and stayed here after reading some travel books. Not terribly expensive and the room was big and comfortable. It was standard for North America. Two double beds, one chair TV fridge bathroom etc. All very tastefully done My only gripe was that staff were not very friendly. Maybe an English / American thing, but nobody seemed to go out...

Off we went on our staycation since we live a little over a mile from this classic Ft Lauderdale hotel. We have stayed here several times, so we were looking forward to being back on Las Olas for a great night of friends and food. Now I really like this hotel and location but , there certainly is a range... More

Being this the first time in the USA I have no other hotels here to compare it to. It is OK but needs a renovation in my opinion. Regardless of this, it is clean, the bed comfortable and the staff were friendly. I was here on a business trip so the location is excellent, and it has a gym and... More

Minutes from beach, best shopping and restaurant selection in town! Safe area to walk at all hours, parking is easy, rooms spacious, excellent views of downtown and the New River... 15 minutes to airport or cruise ships.

We arrived 6-29 - 7-5 forth the 4th of July . I booked a tower double and was upgraded to a tower double with balcony. This was... More

The location of the property is fantastic - can't be beat in terms of convenience and access to everything on Las Olas Blvd. The hotel prides itself on historical charm - but there is so much else that isn't acceptable that the charm is easy to overlook. The first thing you notice when entering the hotel is the smell -... More

Great location, good food, and allows pets. Two options for food in the hotel ( happy hour with 1/2 off food and drinks) with numerous options with in walking distance. Nice pool area but have to cross a street. Large rooms. Short ride to the beach. Would stay here again.
