This was our first time to Fort Lauderdale and it took me awhile to find a place for us to stay. After having spent a lot of time reading reviews of the larger chains along the A1A, I have to say that I was a bit worried about whether we would even be able to find a good place to stay - there are a lot of horror stories for these chain hotels; but enough about them, I just wanted to share that bit of information so anyone reading this can get an idea of how great our experience at the Hotel Lush Royale was in comparison.

Many of the reviews on the Hotel Lush Royale (HLR) include names of the staff. I can tell you that you will also become familiar with all of the staff because the service here is so personal. From the moment we booked our stay, we were greeted with confirmation e-mails that were personalized and signed by Jeff, Andrew, and Raibelis. Our interaction with the HLR staff did not stop at confirmation of the stay, I inquired about the parking situation at the hotel (it's free unlike the chains), along the A1A and the need for a rental car to explore. I received very helpful, detailed replies that included the recommendation of a rental car company and places to go and see. Finally, we received on last e-mail shortly before our trip asking about the time we were expected to be arriving at the hotel as the staff wanted to ensure that they would be prepared for us; the hospitality of the Hotel Lush Royale was amazing even before we got there!

Upon our arrival, we were greeted by David who escorted us to the HLR office where we met Rai and Andrew. Everyone was so friendly and made us feel so welcomed. After a quick confirmation of our reservation details, Rai showed us to our room and gave us a tour of the hotel. The grounds are clean and well-kept - there are lots of garden areas, definitely the lush in Lush Royale.

The pool and lounge furniture are clean and inviting. We have never spent so much time lounging in a pool before. My husband and I loved coming back to the HLR after a day of exploring and having a drink while floating around in the pool. Rai and Andrew were always checking on us to make sure that we had everything we needed. Have I talked about the hospitality?

I should mention how clean our room was even though it seemed like we only used it for sleeping since we spent so much time at/in the pool. After our tour of the grounds, Rai left us to get settled in our room. We were greeted with a hand-written note thanking us for staying at the HLR. Additionally, our room had a number of orchids placed around the room; I'm guessing they were plucked from one of the many beautiful orchids growing off the trees around the pool - I am extremely jealous of how many orchids the HLR has growing like weeds. The attention to details do not stop there; the hotel wraps all the extra toilet paper rolls in tissue paper with a hotel logo sticker on it; I've stayed in expensive chain hotels that do not even do that. The room was very spacious and came with a refrigerator and microwave which was very handy. Our room was made every day and it was not just a simple changing of our linens, the staff organized our mess of magazines and other things we had left thrown on the table!

I can honestly say that all of the other great reviews that you will read on the HLR are completely in line with what you can expect of your stay. Rai was there most of the time during our stay and we got to know him pretty well during our short time; he's just so sweet and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and have no doubt where we will be staying on future visits to Fort Lauderdale. A big thank you to Rai, Andrew, David and the rest of the staff at the Hotel Lush Royale. The hospitality and personalized service are second to none.

We went to Florida for a business trip and then went to Fort Lauderdale for some relaxation . Wanted to go to a New place to stay have tried other hotels there and found the Hotel Lush Royale looked like a great place to try. So we made reservations about 3 months in advance and when we arrived at the Hotel was Greeted with a big Smile and Welcoming from Andrew . He was very super guy and very friendly . We had booked a regular double king room but when we arrived Andrew had upgraded us to a wonderful Suite. I was very well decorated and maintained . Loved the grounds also with the pool and hot tub and the lighting at night was very tranquil. I was not a over powering lighting which was just the best for us.
We had a very nice and relaxing weekend with Andrew and the staff there. Also want to throw out a Thank you to David . He was very nice about asking if he could clean our room as we were at the pool side . And that he took his time and folded our clothing that we had left on the floor . That was just an awesome sight to see..... Again a Big THANK YOU to ANDREW , DAVID and the rest of the staff at HOTEL LUSH ROYALE

My partner and I recently stayed at the Lush Royale, the 5th time in the past year. As always the stay was wonderful. We return time and time again for of a number of reasons: the tropical gardens, the cleanliness, location, and most of all the management team. Jeff and Andrew make you feel like the Lush Royale is truly a home away from home. This is one hotel that is truly warrants return visits. Thank you for welcoming us home.

We have stayed at the Palm Plaza many times before and had reservations there after being there in March. Only days before we were to arrive it was closed for renovation. Edward the manager called us and was very accommodating explaining our options. There were two parties of us arriving from different areas and within hours he had notified and accommodated us. Our kudos to Edward . You are the greatest. We arrived at the Lush Royale and were immediately made to feel like family by Andrew the co manager and Jeff. We were served drinks by the pool in the afternoon every day of our stay by Ray the afternoon desk man. He was an absolute joy and made everyone feel wonderful. Robert in housekeeping was not only thorough but very personable and lovely to us. This is a clean beautiful property with a very capable and lovely staff. Thanks to everyone for making this a great vacation in a well maintained beautiful property.

Thank you so much Bill & Bob for your very complimentary review. We were more than happy to welcome you as our guests do to the fact of the work being done at our sister property The Grand Palm Plaza.

You are so right about Edward. He took great care, and concern to see that his guests that needed to be moved, were in good hands. The personnel of all of our resorts know that customer service is #1. And Edward shines!

We truly enjoyed meeting you for "our" first time, and we're very pleased you felt at home with us. That was so kind of you to mention all the staff by name. That means so much to all of us!
You both were great fun to have here with us. We had quite a few laughs didn't we! :)

Please know you will be missed, and you are always welcome here at H.L.R. Be sure to let us know the next time you are at The Grand Palm Plaza, so we may stop in and say hello.
Stay as happy as you always are! :)

My partner and I have stayed at number of male resorts in the United States over the years and Hotel Lush Royale is definitely one of the best. The staff were friendly and eager to please. Many little details that you don't see anymore like cocktail hour, flower petals in your room and hand written notes are here. The other guests were friendly, but not intrusive. Definitely will return here when we are back in Ft. Lauderdale.

I have never written a review for TripAdvisor, and I never thought I would be moved to do so. But my partner’s and my recent stay at the Hotel Lush Royale gave us an experience that begs to be told.

First of all, we are in our mid- to late fifties, and not party animals anymore by any stretch of the imagination. Our biggest priority in finding a vacation venue in Ft. Lauderdale was that it be peaceful and a place to unwind, since our lives were so busy and chaotic at home. I found the Hotel Lush Royale while using TripAdvisor, read the wonderful reviews, and, taking a look at the hotel’s website, decided to give it a try.

I have to say it was one of the best decisions my partner and I have ever made.

Manager Jeff greeted us when we arrived for our stay, and immediately floored us by offering us an upgrade to a suite at no extra charge. I have no idea if this is a common practice with Jeff (this being a slower time of year for most of the gay B & Bs in the area) but believe me, we felt like we had just won the lottery. The suite featured a large living room/dining room area with a flat screen TV, kitchenette, a nice sized bedroom with another flat screen, a walk-in closet, and a bathroom. All very clean, neat and welcoming. Small orchid blossoms were placed in strategic areas of the suite, including one with our welcome note from Jeff and the staff and one in the toilet bowl (yes, I said toilet bowl!). Jeff then showed us the grounds of the hotel, and the orchid theme continued in a breathtaking display of dozens of beautiful orchids that were attached to the countless palm trees on the grounds. Other tropical flowers and plants abounded, creating a truly lush and beautiful environment. Soothing music played in the background as Jeff continued to show us the pool and hot tub, the kitchen and computer room.

Suffice it to say my partner and I started relaxing the minute we stepped into the Hotel Lush Royale’s calming influence. We had a week of bliss, and definitely did not want to leave. Contributing to our well-being was the unbelievably nice, completely genuine, polished, professional, incredibly helpful and generous staff (thank you so much Jeff, Andrew, Leo, Robert, David!). They seemed to know what I wanted before I had a chance to think about it! And one cannot forget the wonderfully fragrant cooling face towels and the ice cold cocktails provided to us in the heat of the afternoon. Sigh…..

Also important to me (and I’m sure to others as well) was the effortlessness in finding the hotel. Just two blocks off of A1A on Terramar, driving to and locating the establishment was a piece of cake. Parking spaces were ample in the front and side of the hotel, and we never had to search for a place to put the car. We also were very pleasantly surprised at the great meals and drinks we had at the Royal Palms, a sister facility to the Hotel Lush Royale and easy walking distance away.

Through this review I may sound like I’m an “all sweetness and light” kind of person, giggling and cavorting my way through life on the Good Ship Lollipop. Believe me, I am not. I just wanted everyone to know how much staying at the Hotel Lush Royale genuinely meant to me and my partner.

Run, don’t walk, to book the Hotel Lush Royale.
