As a local, south Florida resident I'm in the area quite a bit. When I have family or friends in from out of town I have a few go to spots. This place is definitely on the list. The hotel taps into the list of what travelers are looking for today with small touches like complementary bottle water and coffee...

I'm a solo traveler and this hotel was AWESOME! It was clean and just simply perfect. Just a hop and a skip from the beach, restaurants and shops. They provided beach towels which were located near the pool. My only complaint would be that the rim of the pool located at building #2 needs to be cleaned. It reminded me...

This room was very modern with contemporary furniture. This is a mom and pop hotel in great location, great price, near everything that is happening in the Fort Lauderdale area. The room is state of the art with very swanky up to date design. I did have two issues. 1. The AC was not working. It was blowing very little...

This place is so great for relaxing. I loved the professionalism of manager Phill. Rooms were super clean, bed were very comfortable. Everything at the Ikona boutique hotel was great. The nespresso coffe was excellent to start the day, people should know about this perfect hidden Gem . Thank you Phillip

I like botique hotels, but this one falls short and I'll tell you why. First of all, you have to put it in perspective on the location and what the place is surrounded by. The hotel is located 1 block from Ft. Lauderdale Beach and surrounded by large hotels (Hilton/W/Conrad, etc.) that charge a fortune compared to the Fortuna. So,...
