This was our first stay at this property and we were very happy with it. As I indicated, we had the unique experience of having stayed at the Alhambra Beach Resort [a block away] two days earlier. Then, we went to Key West for a day. And, we booked the Pillars because we had difficulty finding a place during Boat Show Week in Fort Lauderdale.
First the room was excellent. High quality, upscale toiletries, super soft towels, etc. Second, there is a nice pool and you can walk back to a dock with a great view of the waterway. The staff was great. Very helpful. The one young lady took us around the property to show us the various features and facilities that were available. Probably, of the three different beds we slept on over the three day period, I found this one to be the best for me.
They have a nice breakfast available in the morning. However, it is really overpriced - $50 for two people. But, it was a lot faster than running around to find some place for breakfast that morning, as we got ready to go on our second cruise.
The Pillars presents a different value proposition than the Alhambra Beach Resort. But the Pillars delivers a luxurious experience. In all honesty, the next time we return to Fort Lauderdale, I will first try to book at Alhambra. But, if it is booked or the room I want isn't available, I will immediately call the Pillars.
