“Fantastic room in nice hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

We stayed the last night after a Caribbean cruise at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort since we wanted to splurge a little and stay somewhere really nice our last night in town. Since the Ritz Carlton was too expensive, we opted for the Hilton since both the hotel and its location seemed very nice.

We contacted the hotel in advance about getting picked up from the cruise terminal. It took about a week for the hotel to respond which probably is a little bit longer than it should be, but after that initial delay responses were quite quick. When we were waiting to leave the ship our driver contacted us and after passing immigration she came and picked us up and took us to the hotel.

When arriving the hotel we were checked in by a really friendly girl . Since we're Hilton Silver we received complimentary wifi and a few vouchers for a non-alcoholic beverage in the semi-Starbucks Le Marche Cafe close to the lobby area which was appreciated.

The room was very nice. We had asked for a high floor and received a room on the 21st floor with a view of both the beach and the city. The room had a kitchen, bathroom with a jacuzzi and rain head shower, balcony, great, but slightly small, bed and a tv with fantastic reception and picture quality which I always appreciate.

We made a brief stop to the pool area which was nice and from the sixth floor overlooked the ocean. The pool area is also where the hotel's Ilios restaurant is situated which served a quite tasty altough not fantastic dinner.

In general the hotel is very nice. The room was one of the better I've stayed in and the location is just across the road from the beach. I would probably stay again if back in Ft Lauderdale, a quite strong four.

Room Tip: High floor with a view of the ocean

I was skeptical when I booked this property. I was expecting mediocre service, together with so-so accommodations that you pay handsomely for due to the beach access. Our service was uniformly pleasant and attentive, from the front desk to bellmen, to pool attendants. This was a family trip. We staying a large, well appointed two bedroom, two bath suite with a full kitchen. Kitchen supplies were brought up immediately upon our request. My favorite feature was the huge wraparound terrace with views of the ocean and the intercoastal. The master bedroom's terrace was private. The entire suite was beautifully appointed. My children thoroughly enjoyed the beach and the pool. The pool area is great, large with two spas and cabanas for rent.
We did not eat on property so we cannot speak to the restaurant. I would consider this property half a notch below the Ritz but superior to the Westin next door.
Truly the only reason I am not giving it 4 stars because I feel our rates were a little high. Getting value for my money is very important. It was very expensive for two nights. We checked out just as the spring break crowds were heading in. If I did not have children, I would not consider this place over any holiday period. They need more elevators and they need to stagger check out times. The lobby and valet area can quickly become a zoo.

Located 10 sec walk from the beach this modern hotels offers everything you might need including great service. Rooms are spacious nicely decorated with most seems to have a balchony. Hotel is a 10 min walk along the beach from the bar/restaurant area. There are some drawback however. Pool is mostly filled by kids and there are spoilt, obnoxious kids everywhere. There is not enough sunbeds for everyone so come early. Witnessed customers paying the pool boy to "reserve" sunbeds for them while others get none while they should be available for everyone. Very dissapointing.

We had a bachelorette weekend and it was amazing! Such a great hotel! The staff was really nice, and helpful. Thank you to Brittany that works at the Hilton that gave us the best service possible. The suite we stayed in was awesome! We had a fully equipped kitchen and the room service was great! I have to say the breakfast we had at the hotel was the best hotel breakfast I have had. We all enjoyed our stay and would definitely go back!

This is a very nice hotel with awesome views of the ocean. You have to cross a street to actually get to the beach but it is not a big deal. Lots of shops and restaurants within walking distance. Taxi service readily available for longer excursions. Loved it!

Stay here for 9 nights in April 2014. Was in a 1BDRM SUITE/OCEANFRONT/LARGE BALCONY. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.
Pros:
- The suite is lovely with lots of space. Best features included the wrap around balcony and the soaking tub by the window.
- The kitchen is fully stocked and well equipped. Ask for anything you need. While the appliances are fully functional, they are getting older and should be up for replacement soon.
- The bedroom and walk-in closet is nice but not very big. Plus when all the doors are open in the bedroom (bathroom, walk-in closet and bedroom doors), it feels like too many doors.
- The living room is comfortable and spacious.
- The bathrooms are generous in terms of space and have enough of everything.
- Housekeeping were on the ball. They called the first day we arrived and asked when we wanted them each morning. And each morning, they were there. Well done!

Cons:
- The bed is far too soft - its time to replace the mattress.
- The windows get quite dirty (due to ocean sprays) and in the 9 days that we were there, the views got more and more distorted.
- Staff in lobby area could be more attentive and friendly. There are so many staff (valet, concierge, security, frontdesk) and all with kind of sour faces. Plus, because we were there for so long, it would have been made us feel more welcomed if staff were friendlier.
- We were there over 2 weekends - worse time to be at the hotel. Like a zoo in all public areas.
- Pool area should not have deck chairs 'reserved' with no guests in them for hours.
- While security is obvious in the lobby area, people come and go up to the pool area all the time. Some are not hotel guests! Perhaps having a keyed access to the 6th floor?

Overall, enjoyable stay with room for improvement in public areas. And please, change the mattresses!

Room Tip: Book a room with the ocean view - its worth it!

I recently stayed at the Hilton Ft Lauderdale Beach resort for a conference. The rooms were wonderful, the staff was tremendous, and the food was delicious--both at the restaurants and from the event catering. I can't emphasize how great the staff was--they were present and always making sure we were happy.

And, to make a great trip even better, the massage from Leon Watson was amazing. I've had many massages in my time, and Leon was professional and incredibly effective. I felt renewed and relaxed afterward!
