Beatiful hotel, charming lobby and recreational area. Nice, airy room with all cooking amenities in the kitchen area. Balcony is very big and ours was always in the sunny side in the morning (ocean view). The room itself is cosy and chic at the same time.
Wi-fi is on the good speed , enough to watch a cartoon for a kid)
The only thing that spoiled our stay a bit - was a house keeping service. On the arrival, the room was a bit dusty, with some papers, belonging to the previous guest. First day our room was only half done with my baby' pyjama hanging on the tv, the towels left on the floor. When we askedabout it on the reception next day, the room was done, but the balcony door was left wide open and the lights were on, so we had to deal with some mosquitos by night.
We still found our stay just perfect, but this housekeeping experinec is quite disappointing for the hotel,s level.
In front of the hotel there is a municipal parking lot , free from 6pm-8 am, rest of the day - the fee is 1,75 per hour (paid in advance) for maximum 3 hrs. You have to save some coins with you, or to
have a usa telephone to pay by phone, as it does not accept card-payment.
Overall the hotel is nice and i would surely reccomend it.

Room Tip: Shile the mqjority seems to prefer the intracoastal view, we were absolutely happy with our ocean vi...

Stayed at Il Lugano for two nights after cruising the Caribbean; the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We were delighted to be upgraded to a suite overlooking the Inter Coastal Waterway, the room was spacious, clean and kitted out to a very high standard. The pool area and the main reception areas were very well maintained. The hotel was situated within easy walking distance of restaurants, cafes and bars; would recommend a visit to the Blue Jeans Blues Bar, excellent food, friendly staff and live Jazz/Blues mus ic every evening. Would definitely recommend a stay at IL Lugano. Claudio and Annette Belotti, November 2012. West Wales

Il Lugano is a very nice "boutique" hotel in Fort Lauderdale. Slightly difficult to find the entrance but reasonably well situated for access to central Fort Lauderdale areas. Some difficulty at check in but easily resolved. Room is almost suite like with fully appointed kitchen inc. cooker, microwave, full size fridge and even separate washing machine. Bed is fantastically comfortable. Room is very clean. the secret to turning off the annoying light at the cooker is that the on/off button is actually located on the microwave! One dining room provides all breakfast, evening meals etc. Beautiful setting overlooking the waterfront but can get quite busy in the evening. There is also a separate bar area at the front of house with easy listening live music provided.
I will happily choose to stay in Il Lugano on my next trip.

Room Tip: my room had a view overlooking the sea which provided beautiful sunrise.

We stayed here for a 2 night stay and it was amazing. The room was clean and had everything we needed. It was 5 of us and we fit all comfortably. The staff was amazing especially Carly who helped us find a restaurant for my friends birthday dinner. Valet was very quick and efficient. The beach is super close and in walking distance. There is also restaurants and walgreens in walking distance.

This is not a place that you would want to stay if you do not have a vehicle. It is out of the way from the main areas by quite a bit. The scenery from the back of the hotel is nice because it overlooks the waterway. The room was huge and had some very nice amenities. The hallways seemed very worn, which was odd considering the rest of the room and public areas seemed very well kept. We got a great deal and had a car, so overall we felt this was a great value.

Hidden among condominiums is Il Lugano, beautifully appointed hotel rooms. We were upgraded to a Jr. suite which had a kitchen and laundry, living room, balcony with ocean view. Firm bed with deluxe linens and pillows, very comfy. The valets very friendly and gave us a dining tip to eat along the waterway at a casual place,, grill and sports bar called Shooters. They had great food and fun ambience watching the yachts go up the canal. If you walk its only 2 blocks but a scary area so you might want to drive the short distance.

Room Tip: Ocean view (in the distance) very nice but I suspect the canal views would be fun...
