“Manhattan Tower is WONDERFUL!”
Reviewed May 15, 2010

In 2008, my husband and I walked into Manhattan Towers to check on room availability for a months’ stay in 2009. The owner, Russel Dion, was poolside listening to one of his guests. He looked up at us, smiled and said, “I’ll be with you in a moment, folks”, then turned back to finish hearing his guest’s story. I turned to my husband and said, “I like that...he’s concerned about his current guest, not just new folks!” My husband strongly agreed.

That graciousness and consideration is genuine and constant, coming not only from Russel but also Joe and TJ. They make you feel at home. And what a GORGEOUS home it is – quiet atmosphere, beautiful gardens and pool, elegant furnishings, and glorious sunsets to watch as you sit by the intercoastal waterway. And if you want to walk to the ocean and beach (just 2 blocks away), beach chairs and towels will be provided for your comfort!

We have been coming back ever since and will continue to do so in the future. Without question, we highly recommend Manhattan Towers!
- Linda and Ugo

We found the hotel online and it was everything that was promised! The furnishings were charming and eclectic, Russell, Joe and TJ were friendly and welcoming, the location was perfect, pool clean, flowers abundant - couldn't get any better! The boats parading down the Intercoastal weren't bad either. Altogether, a perfect package that made us feel welcome and looking forward to coming back.

We just got back from our first stay at the Manhattan Tower, and we will definitely be returning. Russel, Joe and TJ made our stay absolutely wonderful and coped brilliantly with the unexpectedly low temperatures! We stayed in Apartment 207, which is a studio with the whole of the front wall a picture window overlooking the Intercoastal - it was beautiful. We can't recommend this hotel highly enough.

We discovered the Manhattan Tower last year whilst taking a water taxi trip. Looked it up on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. What a fantastic decision that proved to be!
The hotel is a 1950's original that has been extensively rennovated and updated by the owners Russel and Jo and yet keeps its incredible charm and character.
The rooms are immaculate and eclectic in their decor and each of the full facility units has a homely charm of its own.
Some of the best look out over a gorgeous dock to the intracostal and its mega yachts whilst other overlook the pool area planted with many trees. Being there at Xmas, the place was fully illuminated too with amazing decorations which goes to show how hard the owners work at making your stay enjoyable.
You are right on the majestic waterway, two blocks from the ocean bars and restaurants and a mile and half - easily walkable - in each direction to Los Olas or the Galleria.
My family (incl 13yo son) were warmly welcomed by Russel who went out of his way to help us at all times and special mention must be made to TJ the assistant manager who is a top guy and works extremely hard to keep the hotel immaculate.
As well as finding a new place to stay for our annual FL vacation we feel we have now made new friends and can't wait to go back.
Give the boring impersonal glass towers a miss and try the Manhattan Tower instead - you won't regret it.

This year will make our sixth annual visit to Manhattan Tower, and we can't wait! The location is perfect. We walk to the beach, restaurants, and shopping malls. We look forward to relaxing on the balcony and watching the ships along the intercoastal waterways. The views are spectacular. The accommodations are spacious and immaculate. I love the eclectic decor and the tropical touches reinforce the "vacation mentality." We're looking forward to the excellent service, enjoying the sunshine, and relaxing on the deck.

My husband and I spent 4 nights to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We visit South Florida often but were very excited when we found this hotel near everything. Our hopes for a relaxing and romantic anniversary getaway were fulfilled when first walking into the room. The view was incredible (we stayed in 207), the kitchen had everything we needed, the linens were plentiful and clean, the bed comfy, and the bathroom spotless.

Add to this a staff that is only to be found when you needed something and then more than happy to oblige, what more could you want?

Fort Lauderdale: Manhattan Tower "Absolutely the best"
Date: October , 2008
Reviewer: Nyegaard/Vinord/Rasmussen in Denmark

First we were in Fort Myers, Key Largo and Miami Beach. But when we came til Manhattan Towers in Fort Lauderdale we
all agreed - NOW WE ARE HOME. We have been here before and
will absolutly come back again. Beautyful apartments, friendly
staff, beautyful garden, nice pool and the furniture inside and
on the deck are fantastic. We really feel welcome here.

  • Liked — Sit on the deck and look at the Intercoastel with all the boats
  • Disliked — That we have to leave
