Great stay. I don't travel much, but I like to treat myself. Close to the beach, with great friendly staff, large and clean rooms, a great value. The highlight was the Italian restaurant, Da Campo, offering outstanding food and great friendly, yet not stiff service. The lobby bar was a great setting for an evening cocktail as well. I will come back.

very nice hotel on the waterway with beautiful suites and incredible balconies. the hotel is about 3 blocks to the beach but if your not interested in the beach, you cant beat it. i love to stay at the beach but for a relaxing time, go to il lugano.

We needed a place to stay for a short visit to Fort Lauderdale and after seeking advice from other trip advisor members we chose Il Lugano Suite Hotel. This is a lovely boutique hotel located right on the waterway with a beautiful view of passing pleasure boats. The suite was perfect. It had a huge balcony overlooking the waterway, a very comfortable king-size bed and m amenities ore than I had in my first apartment including a washer and dryer, a refrigerator, microwave, extra closet, and all kitchen utensils. We wanted for nothing. There was also cable TV with premium channels. The staff was great and so was the service. This was a nice peaceful place to stay without the high prices that were offered in Miami. It is a 45 min. drive to South Beach and with the money we saved we drove there without a problem. Aside from the hotel restaurant which was really nice there are many places to eat in the area and even a supermarket just 5 min. We rented a car and parked on the street directly across from hotel each day and fed the parking meter about $2.00 by telephone until it was time to leave midmorning. When we returned it was free until 7am.

PROS - Beautiful large room, very clean Great price

CONS - NONE

Room Tip: Get a balcony facing the waterway.

I stayed at the Hotel several times and love it. Kitchen, wahser dryer, living room and bedroom are very nice. Room service was also very good....The only concern was the price for parking. It was a bit high but otherwise I would recommend it to anyone who wants more than a standard hotel room..The decor is very simular to the Hyatt Regency or MG Grand Hotel in my opinion.

This place is great. Really nice clean modern but comfortable design. The front desk was great and the service was great. They upgraded me to a suite without asking and it had a full kitchen with the exception of an oven but it had a microwave, washer, dryer, and dishwasher. Really roomy, large outdoor patio. Many times I feel that once hotels see you book on Hotwire they put you in the crappy rooms. This hotel did the opposite and upgraded me to a suite. The back of the hotel backs up to the inter coastal waterway? and the beach is only 3 blocks away. Probably a 1/3 mile walk. It has kind of a boutique feel but it's 10 stories. The pool is a little small but very nice. Great hot tub too and nice little huts and places to lay out. It's in a location that's pretty laid back but it's a 5 minute drive to Las Olas Blvd and all the busy beach scene.

Room Tip: Nothing that's what's awesome

Great restaurant and I consider myself a foodie. The food was amazing, and the sausage panini was very tasty.
The staff was incredibly wonderful and very accommodating.
The rooms were really wonderful and we had the cheapest room. Our view was of the city and the ocean, it was perfect!
The location is not close to the "party" section of Fort Lauderdale but is on a wonderful spot on the canal. We really didn't need to leave this hotel. The pool, jacuzzi, view, and restaurant was perfect if that is what you were looking for. The beach is a walk.. but they do have a ride there for you if you choose. We didn't. We enjoyed watching the boats go by, and the view from the pool. The pool is small (not resort like, but plenty big), but wasn't crowded when we were there so we didn't find it a problem.
