We chose this hotel as part of our honeymoon travels and were not disappointed. Stylish and luxurious with all the five star amenities you'd expect, staff were friendly and helpful. We were lucky enough to bag an end room and our beautiful room boasted floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ocean with another window the width of the entire room overlooking the state park. Waking up to the sun rising and watching it set was amazing. The sushi restaurant is similarly wonderful offering fantastic food at reasonable prices. Make sure you make the most of Happy Hour (great cocktails!). We would highly recommend this hotel and will return

Room Tip: Request a corner room to make the most of those views!

Stayed 4 nights. Impressive modern lobby and room views. However, the B ocean hotel is lacking in many ways. The most annoying things are the paper thin walls. Get ready to be a part if your neighbors conversations! Secondly, the pool area is not to scale with the size of this hotel...better get up early for a spot! The location is okay but quite a far walk to the nicer beach and restraunts. They don't offer any shuttles and parking is rather expensive. Breakfast buffet is a rip off at $16.95/pp but with the location was not worth a cab fare elsewhere. Not impressed.

Dear Sp1017, thank you for your comments. I am sorry to hear that the neighbors were quite noisy. Our pool size is similar to other hotels on the beach but I understand that it is challenging at times to find a chair due to our high occupancy. As for our location, as stated by many other guests on this site, we are within walking distance to several restaurants, the Galleria Mall and accross the street from beautiful Fort Lauderdale beach, a much quieter section than the South end of the beach. We regularly review our pricing to ensure that we are competitive with other beachfront upscale hotels, and both our overnight parking fee and the price of the breakfast buffet are in line with what other hotels charge.

I will definitely return to this hotel. Room, Dining, and Service were superb. The room was quiet despite being on the corner of two busy streets. The sushimi was outstanding. The service was friendly and efficient from all staff. Wonderful experience!

We stayed on the 5th floor but could hear so much above us and around us. Heard the bass of the bar around the corner (on the back of the hotel), horns honking, lots of stairwell noise, housekeeping carts, the loud kids next door. Slept with white noise app on high every night and was still awakened by big noises at all hours.

Also, the AC was difficult to regulate and did not circulate in the room well. We'd go from humid to freezing in minutes.

Great view and beautiful room, but next time I'm finding a rental with no shared walls.

Dear lajd2003, thank you for sharing your comments. I apologize if you didn't get a good night sleep. Our windows are double pane, which provide the best sound blocking coefficient.

I went there for my birthday and unfortunately all the others hotels were sold out due the boat show.

The location is not the best of comparing it with the other mayor hotels in the area.

I must said that the food was very good at the restaurant!! Out server, John, was a real gentlement and we had fun talking with him.

Our chek in/out process was smooth, even better that the hotels close by.

Dear RalphCA, thank you for sharing your comments. Many people tend to enjoy our location better because it is away from the noisy section of FLL beach. Also, the beach in front of the hotel is much less crowded and provides for a more relaxing experience. I appreciate your positive feedback on John, the food and your overall restaurant experience.

Spent several days here in early March 2013. Our room faced the ocean (as do all the rooms). Room was clean- white with turquoise color scheme and spotless. Bathroom adequate, rain shower, however bath towels could have been thicker. Beach across the street. Pool area small but never had trouble finding a chair and well protected from the wind. Staff were friendly and attentive; valet parking staff were especially nice. Valet parking is 25 per day. Don't need a car as restaurants, stores and mall within walking distance. Will definitely return in the future when plans lead us back to this area.

Upon arrival there were company conferences (2 within one week)...taking up 90% of hotel (no room in lobby, pool area, etc) Rooms were bright white and very welcoming. Every room has great view of the ocean. Construction in lobby for lobby bar seems to be a nice addition coming soon. This hotel was further away from the main strip and lacking restaurants, unless you want to eat at the mall. Only cons were toilets, and pool atmosphere lacking. Small pool grounds, no music, and abuts the bars and tattoo parlors around back of hotel.
