The hotel is as promised. It is a nice Hampton Inn with a few extra touches. The two bed room is queen beds, which are always appreciated over double beds. There is a manager's reception on M-W which serves snacks, wine, beer, and soft drinks. The pool is small, but nice to sit out on. The breakfast was varied and better than the last Hampton Inn we stayed at. This one had little boxes of cereal, instant oatmeal, in addition to the hot breakfast item, bagels, waffles, and fruit. The parking was secure in a garage. The workout room was large and sufficiently equipped.
The hotel is in an industry area, within walking distance of the Las Olas Boulevard, however, I wasn't sure if it was safe to walk to the few blocks and instead we drove. This area of town has many restaurants, boutiques, and clubs, so it was hopping and fun to walk around in.
I recommend this hotel if you're looking for value, but next time I'm spending more and staying closer to the water in an area where I can walk around without driving and finding parking first.
