My husband and I stayed at The Pillars for two nights prior to taking a cruise. I enjoyed staying at this hotel more than any hotel I have ever stayed at. The staff were wonderful in every way. We got there a little early and they took our luggage to our room that was still being cleaned. They recommended a great restaurant around the corner for lunch. When we returned to the hotel about 4:30 pm, our room was available. Perfectly sized hotel room. Plenty of room for luggage and two people. All the linens and amenities were beautiful. We had a bottle of wine delivered to the room and took it down to the dock the hotel owns and watched the sun set over the intercoastal waterway. We had made reservations to have dinner that night on the dock so that we could view the Winterfest boat parade that night. Perfect location to see the parade of boats. The food was fabulous, too. The next morning we had breakfast delivered to the table outside our room on the terrace. I got the danish basket. There were two freshly baked (still hot) blueberry muffins and one croissant. They were all delicious. We also got the fruit plate. It was the prettiest arrangement of fruit I have ever seen. We got ready and took the water taxi down to Las Olas for some shopping and lunch. The water taxi picks you up at hotel's dock, but you have to scream and wave at them as they go by since it is not a normal stop on the route. We had dinner reservations at Mancini's on Las Olas for that night. The food was okay, but the setting out on the street of Las Olas has a lot to be desired. You had car fumes and Harleys to deal with. We had been to the Samba Room a few years before and liked it much better. Best Mojitos ever! The next morning we had breakfast outside our room on the terrace again. We then walked down to the beach and strolled the boardwalk. We headed back to the hotel to check out. They called us a cab and we headed to the pier for our cruise. I would highly recommend the experience of this hotel. Wonderful price for what you get!
