My first stay at this Hotel was in the 1970 s. Despite numerous renovations I still like the Mid Century Modern interiors of the 1970s version best. In those days the style was sleek danish modern with ocean blue fabric and a sparce decor that was impeccable. It was the look of James Bond and Ray Ban sunglasses. This is the look the hotel should return to. It reflects the exterior style and is a favorite for all ages. The Mid Century Modern interiors are timeless. The location is the finest and no other Hotel in Fort Lauderdale can rival the 66. A water taxi away from secret beaches, Conch fritters and beer followed by an exquisite cheeseburger. It is heaven and you ought to go and visit. Try off season and enjoy being caught in a summer downpour that will leave you dried in an hour and on your way to the pool. Walking the docks at sunset is divine with the sound of a steel drum band in the distance and a cocktail in your hand. I love this Hotel.…
If your going to stay here avoid the tower. The "smaller: bungalows are in a tropical paradise around the pool and are a much better stay. The tower may be iconic but it is in need of refurbishment. the restaurant is way over priced, but the filet mignon is worth it.
We went there as a family and I cannot say enough about the service. From the time you are seated, you are treated like royalty. The food is THE BEST!! If 5 stars is the best there is, then this place gets 6 stars. You will not be disappointed. Many celebrities who pass through South Florida eat here, Steven Spielberg is known to keep his yacht at the marina there, and the view of the marina and the water is breathtaking. Ambiance is most romantic. Both the Filet Mignon and lobster are excellent. This is a must do if you are in South Florida; it is located off of A1A in Fort Lauderdale.
This was my second stay at Pier 66 and I do like the hotel. The location is good, the pool area is awesome but I just feel the rooms could do with some money spent on them. Maybe it’s just the rooms I’ve stayed in though (usually down by the pool)
The staff were excellent, the venue is tired and badly needs updating. The ballroom at the top of the property is quite spectacular, but getting up to it is another matter! With just 2 elevators working it took guests almost 30 minutes to line up for the ride up to it. The quality of the food was good, but not nearly as good as the tasting prior to the event. I guess that's the price you pay for mass production. I believe the hotel is now closed for a complete renovation, it was time!
