Referred here by a friend. Great location, great service and had a excellent view from my room. Started every night with Lindsey at the lobby bar. She made us feel so at home. Always remembered our names and very conversational. She always started our evening off with a bang.
We had a great weekend.

Always feels like home. I've stayed here a couple of times and it's always super enjoyable. I try to get a room Intracoastal. I go for the King 1Bdrm Suite and the views are spectacular. All the comforts of home with great service. Away from the busy hustle and bustle. They do have a car will take you anywhere you need to go within a couple mile radius. I always rent a car and park right across the street in meter parking. Very nice getaway location. I would recommend anyone stay here, they won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Intracoastal view!

I surprised my boyfriend for his birthday by bringing him to the Il Lugano for the weekend without being sure how it would be. I was so happy I chose this hotel. I originally booked a regular king bed intracoastal view room, but when I checked in was given the option to upgrade to a suite for an extra $20 & was very glad I did. The room was like a mini apartment with a beautiful kitchen, living room, bathroom, and bedroom with a king size bed. The room had one giant balcony overlooking the intracoastal with two sliding doors, one from the living room and the other from the bedroom. We didn't want to leave! The only negative was the small weird pool that was way too close to the building with no pool staff BUT there were cabana-like lounge chairs on a raised wooden dock right on the intracoastal that made up for it. Plus with no pool staff we were able to bring our own alcohol in a cooler (and took home some towels.. shh) haha. If I could afford to live there I would, which is an actual option because monthly rentals are available for lease.

We had a lovely suite (two night stay) with every possible option. I chose the location to be near the beach. Located on the inter-coastal area of Fort Lauderdale, it was a bit far to walk to nearby beach. It would be great to stay for a family week. The service was very accommodating for the additional nearby room we required for my cousins. We had breakfast in the restaurant which was a good choice.

This hotel is beautiful inside! We stayed here when we got married before departing for our honeymoon. The rooms are gorgeous and have very tall ceilings. I felt like I was in a movie! The balcony overlooking the inter coastal waterway was quite a magnificent view. I just loved eating breakfast out on our balcony each morning (even though they do not provide breakfast). Our suite was one of the cheaper suites but it still had a washer and dryer, dishwasher, and toaster, oven, and microwave. The pool was rather small and mostly shaded but the area surrounding it had many padded sun chairs/beds where you could lay out. The hotel bar had very friendly bartenders and had a nice atmosphere. There were a lot of shops and salons, bars, and restaurants in walking distance of Il Lugano which made it nice because many of my guests who stayed there for my wedding did not rent vehicles.

The staff initially were not friendly and an issue arouse where I was told the shuttle service to transport my guests to my wedding would not be available. Initially I was told the hotel had a shuttle within a 3-mile-radius. I reported this to the general manager who promptly took action to ensure everyone would make it to my wedding via the shuttle service. She was wonderful and made sure all my guests had transportation both TO and FROM my wedding!

This hotel is priced right also!

Had a three night stay at the Il Lugano Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, FL over the Columbus Day weekend. The facility was beautiful. Between the ocean and the intercostal waterway, just north of Oakland Park Blvd, close to A1A. Our two room suite was on the top floor, the tenth floor. It was tastefully decorated, quite and very relaxing. We enjoyed the suite's balcony overlooking the Atlantic ocean, and spent late evenings enjoying the cool ocean breeze and early mornings watching the sun rise over the Atlantic. We had a king bed that was very comfortable. The hotel staff were pleasant and professional, ready with directions or recommendations regarding attractions or restaurants Over all the Il Lugano is very upscale. We definitely would return to this facility when we return to the Ft. Lauderdale area. However they only offer valet parking at a cost of $25 per night . If one desired to self park one has to use the municipal lot across the street (free 6 PM to 8 AM) and metered at all other times. This was the only negative of our entire stay, and a minor one at that. Overall the facility is outstanding and my spouse loved it and said it was the best accommodation we've had since returning from Egypt a bit over six years ago.

Room Tip: Our room 1004 overlooked A1A and the Atlantic Ocean to the East of the hotel. We had a fantastic v...
