When I was looking for accommodation in Fort Lauderdale, I was looking for one that was nice but also with a close location to everything. This one topped it!
I checked in late and it was real smooth and got upgraded to a higher floor with a nice view. Hotel room was superb, bed was great and was real spacious and roomy. Only negative would be no fridge and no complementary water as I prefer to have cold water. I am not too sure what was with the tap water however it was not clear so I was a bit skeptical with drinking too much.
I did order room service, wrong meal came but it was 1am and I could not have been bothered to complain, was way over priced and was not nice to eat.
I did book a tour with the hotel to then find out in the morning it was not even booked and they tried to find another Everglades tour but didn't have success and then they informed me the initial tour I wanted would only pick up if there was 2 or more people, they were aware it was just myself but I was then told I can still go on the tour but pick up will be at the Sheraton. If I was told this from the beginning opposed to wasting 20 minutes I would have been fine and I said I will meet the tour at the Sheraton. (About a mile from the hotel)
The hotels selection of activities, things to do in Fort Lauderdale are limiting and no brochures were in the room or anywhere in the foyer unless you asked for them.
Overall the stay was nice but I would have preferred a map and a list of what is near by.
Just for others to know what's near by:
7-11 - 5 min walk down Sunrise East
Galleria Mall - 10 min walk down Sunrise East (the mall has Macys, few restaurants etc)
Starbucks - 10 min walk down Sunrise East (opposite Galleria Mall)
