“Pleasant stay starting at the front desk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2010

I had a very pleasing stay at this hotel. I felt the staff was very professional and courteous even with questions about getting around and sights to see. When I called prior to see if an early check-in was possibly they were able to accommodate me.
I had a room with 2 double beds with an ocean view.Balconies are small, just enough room for 2 chairs but that was fine. The room was very spacious and very airy feel. Room was clean & bathroom looks newly renovated. Towels fluffy. Beds soft and very comfy. The decor made me feel as if I was in a beach not a hotel.
The location was great especially that we came without a car & had a bus stop across the street to get to downtown & even the airport. Of course it's right on the beach.
I loved the layout of the hotel. Where the pool was you felt like you were in a courtyard of a house. There is a passageway to get to the ocean and the ocean breeze kind of whirls through it!
If your looking for a small version of a 5-star hotel, this is it.
Would definitely book again.

This place is my absolute favorite on Fort Lauderdale Beach. You get a lot of bang for your buck, and the atmosphere is so relaxed and very beautiful. The rooms are beyond nice....and the ocean views are picture perfect! The bar / food is perfect. See for yourself! I've been back time and time again.

We booked a group of 10 rooms to stay prior to a Cruise. It is very hard to choose a hotel when you are not familiar with the city you will be visiting. After many hours of research, we booked a hotel in Fort Lauderdale that looked like a nice place from the pictures. Thanks goodness we had a family member who went to Ft Lauderdale prior to our trip and we asked him to check out the Hotel. He called back and told us to cancel the Reservation because the hotel was very old, dingy, smelled bad and the beach was not a few steps away as their ad indicated. While he was there, we had him stop to check out a few others on our list and he stumbled upon The Sun Tower. When he went inside, he immediately called back and said this is the place you have been looking for, so we booked it.
Sun Tower staff handled our group check-in very professionally and catered to our every need. The King Suite was awesome, spacious and has a million-dollar view. In fact, every room has a balcony overlooking the ocean. The rooms were very clean and the beds were very comfortable. We were traveling with my 2 boys and they even brought in a Rollaway bed and one slept on sofa sleeper.
I would highly reccommend this place. I never swam in the pool so I can't vouch for that except that it was spotless while we were there. We are going back to Ft Lauderdale and getting married on the beach in 2011. You won't regret your decision to stay here.

Where to start. First I never write hotel reviews, but thought this was a must. I reviewed the other comments before booking and most were right on. First impression of the hotel is that it's dated, but once you get over that the rest is wonderful and very clean! The front desk staff were very helpful and willing to accommodate us with whatever we needed. We travel often and they were by far the most helpful out of any place we have stayed. We like the nightlife but we also like to be away from the crowded "public" beaches. This was best for the beach…clean, clear and it was nice that we did not have to pay to use the chairs and umbrella. We ate once at the café in the hotel, small and not bad. The rest of the time we ate out. All of the rooms are very close to the ocean, which was wonderful! The pool is small but most of the time we were the only two in the pool, so it did not matter. If you call to make the reservation they may drop the price over the phone vs. booking on line:) When we return to Fort Lauderdale we will stay here again because it was away from the crowds during the day, but an easy drive or taxi ride to the downtown fun!!

Stayed here one night after cruise, really can't beat the value of an ocean front king here. Nice big room, big comfortable bed, priceless view, old fashioned wicker furniture but nice. Very good food, a bit pricey but huge portions, anything with the mahi mahi is good. Also liked the artichoke and spinach empenadas. Pool a bit small, but staff very friendly and helpful, and nice to have free internet to check flights email etc. Liked how much quieter it was here than the main strip.

Went next door to pelican for ice cream shop which was overpriced. Really not much better but way more expensive.

In the morning the water was very clear and could see fish in the water from my raft. In the late afternoon were waves, good for boogie boarding.

Took a taxi to Beach place and liked some of the shops. If you want more shops just walk on down the beach front to your right from Beach place and tons more.

Visited 3 nights in june. Location at the beach and also the main reason for visiting the hotel. Difficult to find a parking place at the hotel but we managed all 3 nights. Small when you are traveling with 3 children. No breakfast at the hotel but free wireless internet. Rooms were clean and ok.
