“It will surpass your expectation”
Reviewed January 25, 2014

Quite often a highly rated hotel misses a thing or two. Not so with 15 FTL. it was an extremely enjoyable stay. A short distance from the cruise terminal- we stayed here to unwind and enjoy the city. Room 1 was superb- the pool inviting and a restful sleep in a quiet neighborhood and quiet hotel. We met the owner as the manager was on vacation- and needless to say it is apparent that the high standards are why people rate this hotel so high. We will certainly return and enjoy the
lodging again.

Room Tip: Room 1 is spacious- huge bathroom area- quiet and three steps from the pool.

Thank you very much for the nice comments. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us it was a pleasure meeting you. There are many things to do with in walking distance of 15 FTL Hotel like the park and shopping, water taxi, food places etc. Being a small hotel as ours can make for a nice quite relaxing vacation. Guest tell me it's like having their own pool and garden at home. We will look forward to your next stay with us in the future. Safe Travels, Walter owner/manager

Choosing a hotel or guesthouse on their high ratings creates high expectations. In this case our expectations came true! We booked a 2 night stay @ 15FTL guesthouse due to short distance to Fort Lauderdale Int.Airport (and high rating :-) ). After the first 2 nights we extended our stay with another 5 nights because we liked it so much! We stayed in 3 different rooms and all rooms and beds were great to stay in! You can see the owners have an eye for detail! The lazy "freestyle" breakfast (lots of choices in food and beverages from the kitchen) with possibility to eat it at the poolside was a perfect start for our vacation days! Owner Walt went the extra mile to make our stay perfect. Thanks Walt!

Room Tip: Rooms at the poolside are very nice but rooms at backside might be quieter, all ofcourse depending o...

Thank you so much for the great review. We are always happy when we can meet and exceed our guests expectations. You were a delight to have staying with us at 15 FTL Hotel and did get a good showing of many rooms. We get a lot of guests who extend their stays if available with us once they arrive at the property. I'm told because they aren't sure it's as nice as the pictures show. We are and we do keep the website and pics quite current. Glad you enjoyed breakfast and that we were able to exceed your expectations. You were just the guests we love to have and meet. The hotel gets such a diverse group of people it really makes the property seem very international and the mix really seems to work well for the property and our guests. I wish you a very happy holiday season and come see us again in the future, Regards, Walt and Ed

This is really a great little hotel in Fort Lauderdale. It is clean, appointed nicely with a king bed and the location is great------as long as you have a car and do not want to walk to the beach. It is quiet but very handy to Sunrise Bld. Very good breakfast in the morning. Cons----If you check in other than between 2:00----5:00 p.m., you will probably be by your self so make those arrangements with the owner in advance and do not expect to check in before 2:00.

Room Tip: lower level next to pool

Thank you for the nice review. Our location is for sure not for the people who spend all their time at the beach but prefer a nice quite sunny pool. Our location is centrally located so as to offer our guests every thing Ft.Lauderdale has to offer. As far as check in you can always request an early check in if its available and our after hours "seamless" check-in is very much liked by our European guests. This way they don't have to hurry and can take their time getting to the hotel especially if arriving late into Miami airport. Again many Thanks and Happy Holidays

This was a stop over after leaving a cruise ship in Fort Lauderdale - what a great place - if you really want some peace and quiet, yet still access to the beach and fort lauderdale - this is the place to stay. Walt - the owner - was extremely helpful, made us very welcome and even allowed us to stay a little longer while waiting for flights. We will definitely be back to stay.

Room Tip: We stayed in Roon 3, a large double bed with ensuite right by the pool.

Best place to stay if you are a person that always ask's "what happend to customer service".
My stay here was a Birthday gift from my Girlfreind. Before I arrived Ispoke to Walt and asked him if we could check in early and if I had flowers delivered could he have them in the room before we checked in. He had theveything setup before we arrived and was extremely helpful and informative as to what and where to go around the area. I also want to let you know that if you are picky about your coffee, rest assured no need to go out for coffee whats available in the common kitchen are is worth waking up for.

Very relaxing and quiet atmosphere, other guest were freindly as well. The room was perfect, clean and alot more comfortable then larger hotels that I have stayed in. Overall I'm sure we will come back to stay here in the fall next year. 15FTL really is a gem if you want a calm relaxing atmosphere.

Thank You Walt!!

Craig & Brenda

Room Tip: Second floor poolside which faces west so the sun won't wake you up too early.

Very great experience in this Guesthouse. The hotel is calm, the room is clean, beautiful. Small hotel, thus very welcoming. The breakfast is very good: large choice of food that we can bring to eat around the swimming pool. The host is very nice. Very good hotel !
