“Great Location”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

My friend booked B Ocean and when I heard the price I was kind of shocked. It's a great location if you want to be close to things, but not on top of them. Very clean, nice staff, interesting concept. Rain water shower heads, awesome views in the ocean front rooms, pretty rooms. The valet was great - we were in and out the whole time and they were always nice. Offered up some good options for dinner. The only criticism at all was there was no coffee maker in the room. Nice little cafe downstairs. More South Beach pricing than Ft. Lauderdale. Overall, I would book there again.

Booked into the B Ocean yesterday, with alternate reservations at an other hotel ( just in case ) for a 4 day stay. We were not familiar with the brand, and a bit skeptical, as our Holliday is short, and didn't want to take a chance. I don't like valet parking, to start with, there was also no coffee maker in the room, which is so important to my wife, so it had a few strikes against it to start with. We booked in very quickly ( beautiful lobby btw ) up to the 9th, into the room.....all doubts were immediately erased! The room and the view....priceless. Found out they have wonderful coffee in the Bistro ( complimentary ) Valet parking...they had my car at the door in 2 minutes. My alternate reservation was canceled this morning. I have no reservations in recommending this property. All I can say is WOW

I attended my sister-in-laws Wedding and Reception at the B Ocean hotel in Oct 2012. I would like to start by saying the view offered by the venue is spactacular. Upon arrival with the bridal party we were treated with outstanding customer service. Often times these events can seem chaotic and unorganized, but the staff at B Ocean made it run smoothly. The Bride and family were shown to a private suite to complete her final special day preperations. The event organizer handeled the wedding guests and directed them to the AMAZING set up on the beach across the street. The wedding went off with out a hitch! While the wedding and hospitality by B Ocean staff was great, the real treat was the reception hosted at the hotel's in house restraunt. The menu was pristine and the food was exquisit! The menu offered a choice of flank steak, chicken, salmon, and pasta. I sampled each from the surrounding plates and they were all so good I could have eaten a full portion of each. The decore and service staff was also impecable. I did not see a single empty glass the entire night nor an empty plate left on the table. The service staff made sure the five course meal moved along at a nice pace where no one felt rushed or left waiting for the next course. Overall I thought this was a perfect venue for a small intimate wedding with a friendly and professional staff. If you are looking for a wedding to remember, you should consider this venue. I would like to recongnize two of the staff members in particular, James & Zori, thank you for keeping the bubbly coming and ensuring the kids were well taken care of as well.
- Our warmest wishes, The Velez Family

Stayed he for a couple of nights while on business. The corner room we had was amazing, the views were stunning looking down the street and the ocean.bthe rooms were clean, comfortable and peaceful. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area. Local amenities are all close by. The only down side is the hotel has no convenience store inside. The pool and bar was also very relaxing but who needs that when you have a gorgeous beach steps away...

Stayed in this hotel whilst on a business trip and I had a corner room - I had a window with two aspects overlooking the sea, it was amazing. The windows were enormous and the room was light and airy. The decor is modern, being predominantly white, bathrooms clean and white. We ate here on one of the nights and it was good, all in all I have no complaints whatsoever. Would definately recommend it.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a corner room

My husband and I are pretty low key. We went to Fort Lauderdale to lay on the beach. That's all. B Ocean is RIGHT across from the ocean, and although this hotel is not right in the middle of "all the action," my husband and I enjoyed the fact that our area was quiet and the beach area wasn't crowded. The hotel itself is beautiful...I loved the fact that it wasn't the same ol' cookie cutter hotel. The only issue we had with the staff is that the housecleaning didn't come by until AFTER 3! We requested that our room be tidied up a bit earlier and they did just that. Staff was wonderful! The views were wonderful! The breakfast Buffett was a bit overpriced...but it looked tasty. There is a shady little neighborhood behind the hotel...but that's just the surface. There was an adorable ice cream shop and an OUTSTANDING pizza joint within feet of the hotel and the neighborhood needed up not be so shady after all.
