“Nice place, nice people, great trip”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Very nice small hotel, with a beautiful pool area. The management was very friendly and helpful, and you can't beat the price and proximity to the beach. Parking was free and right next to the hotel. The guests were friendly and it was easy to spark up a conversation. I had a great time and am very much looking forward to a return visit.

My husband and I have been staying at the hotel Lush Royale for many years now and enjoy it more than ever. The rooms are very clean and comfortably decorated, the staff is always very accommodating and the pool area is Lush and well manicured. It is a small boutique style feel with a friendly atmosphere. We've checked out most of the other comparable hotels in the area but would never stay anywhere else.

My partner and I just got back from our second stay at the Hotel Lush Royale and needless to say I didn't want to leave. The place has a certain flair giving the impression of staying at a private estate. The building and grounds are a mixture of Key West, Bermuda and the best of Florida all rolled into one. Jeff, Andrew and the rest of the staff are at the top of their game and make each guest feel special. Each guest room is comfortable and unique. The grounds and pool area are fabulous. If one is seeking a true tropical experience while vacationing in Florida Hotel Lush Royale is the place to stay!!

Room Tip: I believe there are four suites at the Hotel Lush Royale. The Royal Suite is very spacious and has...

Paul, I must say, your wonderful review was a great way to finish up a very busy February!

We couldn't be happier that you both enjoyed your stay with us, and you have touched on many of the reasons our guests continue to return.

It is also a great compliment, that you have booked another stay with us for next February, and treat yourself to the Royal Suite.

The entire staff appreciates being mentioned in your review, as we all strive to see that each and every guest has a memorable stay. We love what we do!

Thank you again, and we look forward to your return next February! :)

My goal was to stay at Lush Royal during my last trip to Ft. Lauderdale, as I heard it was most like another property in town where I typically stay. I ended up booking their sister property, Royal Palms, with the understanding that I could use the quieter facilities of Lush Royale...and use the hot tub. So, I spent a good portion of my day at Lush Royale. It is a nice small property, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. I liked it, but felt that the property was a bit small with a small pool that was shaded most of the day. The property, while well maintained and clean, could use some updating. Rooms seemed nice(I asked them to show me a few), but were not as spacious as other properties I've stayed at. I would definitely stay here on a future trip and overall it was a favorable experience. Good location a few blocks from the beach.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the larger rooms...some of the rooms I saw were small.

Hello HighFlyer, and thank you for your review. We were happy to have you come over from the RP for a more laid back experience, and to enjoy our hot tub. Hopefully you were able to try our delicious afternoon cocktails while sunning by our pool.

How nice you were able to take a look at a few of our rooms as the size and location to the immediate pool area vary. We do have a beautiful suite that might suit you as it is an apartment size room with full kitchen, dining room, living room, with balcony overlooking the pool, and bedroom with king size bed. This particular suite is very popular with those that prefer a more spacious room.

We hope we will not be sold out the next time you try to make a reservation. We would love to have you as our guest! We thank you again!

I had a business trip to Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach a couple weeks ago, and was fortunate enough to get accommodation at the Hotel Lush Royale. What a fantastic place it is!

This was the first time I've ever stayed at a Gay Hotel, as I've always stayed in the business-oriented hotels, and am glad I broke with that tradition and stayed at the Hotel Lush Royale.

The staff was amicable, professional and all over outstanding. My room was lovely, comfortable, and spotless. I thoroughly enjoyed starting my day with their wonderful and complimentary continental breakfast, and dined each morning poolside.

On the days I didn't have to work, it was wonderful just sitting out by the pool, enjoying one of the hotel's signature Frozen Margaritas while relaxing.

The hotel is near the beach, and in walking distance to many restaurants and other attractions.

Will I go back to the Hotel Lush Royale? Absolutely! In a heartbeat.

My stay was quite memorable, and I'm sure yours will be too!

Room Tip: As this property is small, i think any room would be as good as any. My room was on the second floo...

Thank you Rob, for taking the time to post your review. It's pleasing to know your first stay at a gay hotel was pleasant for you! Sometimes stepping out of a usual routine can be a wonderful surprise! And it sounds as though this was the case for you. Your review touched on several of the things that keep our family of guests coming back time and time again.

Although being here on business, we are glad you were able to have "some" down time to relax. It would be a shame not to be able to enjoy lounging by the pool, while having your breakfast, or getting some sun while sipping our afternoon frozen cocktails.

Rob, we enjoyed having you with us, and we look forward to your return! :)

My partner and I spent 4 wonderfully relaxing days before a cruise in February 2013 at the Lush and what a wonderful experience it was. The customer service is exemplary and other accommodations would have a difficult time coming close to what the staff at the Lush offer. The grounds can only be described as truly lush--the palm trees with orchids growing around them and the beautiful shrubbery surrounding the pool and spa all add to one of the most relaxing pre-vacations we have ever had in Ft. Lauderdale.

We stayed in the Royal Suite--probably a little bigger than what we really needed, but it was a great experience. The Royal Suite is huge--a large dining and living area, a separate bedroom and kitchen, complete with full size refrigerator, oven and microwave make this room feel more like an apartment instead of a hotel. It's tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and the rain forest shower head in the shower is a gift from heaven! The beds were firm, but comfortable and each day our room was cleaned, provided with fresh pool towels and tidied up in the least obtrusive way. They were almost like ninja room stewards--I never saw them enter or leave the room, but every morning the room was left spotless.

The pool and spa are the center of attraction in the courtyard and surrounded by the beautiful grounds of the Lush Royale. The pool was heated and kept at the perfect temperature--the spa was hot and bubbly and felt like heaven. Each afternoon cocktails were offered at the pool and ranged from pina coladas to margaritas. In the afternoon we were offered cold towels that were scented in lavender and other oils--a wonderful way to wrap up an afternoon in the sun.

Bikes are offered for rent at reasonable rates but we honestly had no desire to leave the grounds of the hotel except for dinner. We never made it to the beach even though Sebastian Beach is just a few minutes walk from the Lush. A Continental breakfast is offered each morning with breads, pastries, cereals, fruits and juices. We bought food at the grocery store and cooked those for lunch and usually headed to Wilton Manors for dinner. Wi-fi is free throughout the property and a business center with a computer and printer are also available.

The property doesn't have a lot of rooms and that is one of the features we enjoy. Instead of feeling like you are at a big hotel with hundreds of rooms, you are surrounded by faces that become familiar after a few days. We enjoy the intimacy of a smaller property. We are already looking forward to our visit next year--we wouldn't dream of staying any other place!

Room Tip: Some of the rooms catch the early morning sunrise, so if you are a late sleeper I know the staff cou...

Hello Mark, and thank you for your remarkable review! You certainly touched on everything that sets us apart.

We're thrilled you enjoyed your stay with us, and took the time to share your thoughts and impressions. We got quite a chuckle regarding our "Ninja Room Stewards", as you put it. They do their best to see that your room is made up for the day without intrusion.

We also thank you for sharing your wonderful pictures. They really turned out beautiful!

We hope to see you again soon, and appreciate your loyalty and patronage to Hotel Lush Royale. :)
