TERRIBLE service!!! Used this place for airport parking and it was a nightmare!!! Shuttle company wouldn’t answer phone - stranded at airport for over 40 minutes!!! Said they sent a shuttle then NEVER sent one. Rude people, awful experience!!! STAYYYY AWAY!!!!
I called for pickup and was told a van will get here in 15 minutes. Van came but driver would not pick us up. He said he got a call to pick up a group so we would have to wait for another can. . Instead of going off, the driver just stayed parked by us for awhile and then took off. Now another 30 Minutes for a van to pick us up
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!
This resort is exceptional. Next to lake with boats. I’ve visited this hotel several times and it’s always great. The rooms are clean, pool is big, small shops, inside bar/restaurant and bar by pool. Bus to the beach is provided.
We stayed here for a post cruise night before our flight back to the UK. The reception and bellmen were very friendly and helpful. There are some on site restaurants but little choice outside due to location unless you have a car (parking about $30 per day)or use a taxi. Whilst the room was clean it was in poor condition and needed a major renovation eg the bathroom door needed a kick to closed it and there was a lot of evidence this had been the method of closure. The door to the room had a temperamental lock which made security a little worrying. The outside area was fithy and had not been swept for a long time. Would not stay here again.
I stayed at the Pier Sixty-Six Hotel from May 29th - June 1st 2019. The website made the hotel look beautiful but was very surprised when I pulled up. First, self parking is $30 and valet is $35 a day. I had one of the valets offer me a deal to pay him $50 and he would let me come and go through the gates. I instantly smelled a scam so I declined. When I entered the hotel lobby the hotel looked decent but of course they could not find my reservation for close to an hour. All the while I was waiting people were checking in and being asked if they would like a first or second floor room. When I was finally able to check in there was no second floor rooms. The room I was given was on the opposite side of the building. Upon entering the room I found it to be very warm so I tried to turn on the air which didn't work. There were stains on the floor, curtains, bedspread and the refrigerator was broken so water was laying inside. I called the front desk and asked for another room. They took me to another room with comparable stains, a tv that was 25 years old and the air didn't work well either. Finally the last room was adequate not seeing stains and the air worked fairly well. Across the waterway you can see a house being built so you could hear the construction equipment all day. Also, they were putting on the roof so the smell of hot tar was everywhere. The following morning the construction started at 8am sharp so no sleeping in on this vacation. At night there is a beautiful tower all lit up that they show on their website. Unfortunately, the whole tower is closed and the hotel is supposed to close for an extended period for renovations. This was the first time I have been in Ft Lauderdale and after this experience doubt I will go back.…
