Not much is better than having a peaceful breakfast overlooking the intracoastal waterway - bliss And the hotel exudes quality. The pool area is attractive; the bedding, towels an toiletries are good; the staff are welcoming and efficient etc. The air conditioning works as does the parking arrangements Granted that our bathroom/shower room was small but it still had good storage as did the bedroom We would certainly come back if in the wider area of this part of South Florida

We have been eating at this special place now for three years. Our son is a member and lives close by. He invites us for dinner, Birthday Parties and most holidays to enjoy family times together at this beautiful and special place located on the Intracoastal. The views are amazing and the service excellent. Best of all is the FOOD! Outstanding dinners from the soup or salad till the delicious and unique desserts that are the best in Ft. Lauderdale. Every main course has been 5 Star! The chef is creative and serves the fabulous meals beautifully with a fresh flower on the plate. Same with dessert. Each time my son asks me where I would like to dine, I give him the same answer, THE SECRET GARDEN. The staff are kind and friendly. It is peaceful, quiet and beautiful next to the water. Each Holiday or Birthday dinner has been a feast of delicious courses, excellent service and a beautiful venue to enjoy while we dine. Last Mother's Day dinner was wonderful, and I cannot wait to return. Christmas also was outstanding. Hats off to the chef, servers and sweet hostesses who greet us upon our arrival.

The Pillars Hotel is an amazing small boutique hotel that is quiet but close to everything you need. We were in FLL for a wedding with my in laws and my newborn nephew and the hotel was the perfect getaway. We didn’t even make it out to the beach - the pool was more than enough for us! From the minute we got there to the minute we left, we were well taken care of. We arrived before the front desk opened (took a red eye) and the staff took care of us until Faye arrived. She was so professional and went above and beyond to ensure we had the best stay - she is so attentive and willing to help in anyway I or my family needed. I can’t say thank enough to Faye and everyone else at the Pillars. The dinner is amazing - truly something special. We had breakfast at the docks every morning and it was just perfect to start the day. We can’t wait to come back to stay! Thank you again for everything!

My husband and I spent 3 nights here in Feb for a romantic get-away. Had never been to Ft Lauderdale. Pillars was fantastic. For us, it was very expensive, but worth it. We could walk or uber to everything. Very short walk to great beach and tons of dining options. The hotel dinner was by far the best dining experience in FL, so wound up eating dinner there twice. We felt we were in an elegant hideaway with proximity to bustle and excitement. We stayed in a queen overlooking the pool with a private outdoor tented space. Amazing! In addition to beach time, we did a segway tour of riverwalk and tour of artist's home and gardens recommended by Pillars staff. Both were great. If you can afford it, choose Pillars.

My husband and I had a quick 1 night stop over at The Pillars on our way to the Bahamas. What a gem of a hotel! The staff was friendly and helpfully. The room was large and well appointed with a great view of the pool and water. We had dinner at the Secret Garden, the hotels dinner club, and it was excellent. We will stay again the next time we are in Ft Lauderdale.

We had a fabulous 2-night getaway here in November. The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent. Rooms are nice but bathrooms need an upgrade. Also, no beach chairs so we had to rent them for $75 which was pricey.
