“Awesome”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

We stayed here for 3nights prior to a cruise and its wonderful! We booked it online after reading great reviews and it was better than expected.We were upgraded to a one bedroom apartment with wonderful views both of the ocean and waterways.We had a fully equipped kitchen lounge and best of all a washer and dryer which meant we arrived at the cruise with everything clean.
We went down to the restaurant one night for dinner and that was lovely and we had a great waiter Roberto who was really friendly.
We found it quite easy to get around without a car as we walked to lots of restaurants and spots for shopping.
Would highly recommend this lovely hotel to anyone looking for a awesome place to stay as it really was fabulous.

Dear deedeeWestAustrailia,

Thank you kindly for your "awsome" review. Having that washer and dryer is always a good thing especially prior to or just after a cruise. Thank you for your remark about Roberto and our lovely Da Campo Osteria as well. We look forward to your next visit with us to the il Lugano!

Sincerely,

We stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We were lucky enough to get one of the two large corner balcony rooms. The view of the Intercoastal Waterway was gorgeous. The room came complete with a kitchenette with a full-sized refrigerator and cooking facilities. We had planned on having wine and cheese on the balcony, so the refrigerator was greatly appreciated. We had a one-bedroom suite with a large living area. The location is slightly out of the way (as it is back off a main thoroughfare), but not hard to find or hidden in an undesirable neighborhood. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice hotel, within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and shopping.

Room Tip: As for a room with the corner balcony if you want a large outside area to enjoy.

Dear Hooptymoo,

We appreciate you taking the time to complete a review from your time spent at the il Lugano this past month. I couldn't agree more that the gorgeous views add such great value to our property and it's nice that you took full advantage of that with some wine and cheese out on the balcony. Thank you for staying with us and we gladly invite you back for your next trip to sunny South Florida.

Stopped by to have a drink last night. What a pleasant surprise to find out that Lindsey was there to serve me. What a charming, fun, upbeat, young lady she is. Her smile lights up the room. Oh! and BY THE WAY, the service was superb.
Just like to note, also, that Frank on the guitar was fabulous. His repertoire is limitless! He plays and sings with vigor and enthusiasm. Happy to provide any request.
What a great addition to the beautiful ambiance of this hotel restaurant and lounge.

We arrived to the hotel late on Friday night as our flight into Ft Lauderdale had been delayed. The flight in was rough, It was raining,and we missed our dinner reservations....... and then we arrived. I swear it was like the Trip Advisor commercial- When we opened the door to the room- I could hardly believe. The room is huge with a dining area, kitchen area, nice big bathroom, big balcony facing the waterway- awesome view and even a closet washer/dryer. Seriously---- this place has the WOW factor. So we decided to order dinner from the restaurant downstairs Da Campo Osteria. We Shared a chicken panini and margarita pizza. Both were excellent. Best room service meal ever.
I had looked and looked for a pre cruise hote/ somewhere nice for our anniversary ... and i just couldn't decide. So I tried Priceline for the first time and i got a great price for this hotel. I wish we could have stayed longer but we were leaving the next day for our cruise.
Il Lugano definitely saved our anniversary- Thank You!!!!

From the moment you enter, warm and friendly reception to the exceptional rooms and view! Not to mention the restaurant, which in our opinion, is a FIVE STAR!

This is our third visit at this property and it wil not be our last!

Room Tip: If you love to watch the world go by, I recommend staying on the Lagoon side.

Just checked out after staying for 5 nights. I don't normally bother writing reviews but when I do they tend not to be positive for the Hotel or Restaurant.
However this is an easy review. Great place to stay and terrific value for money compared with downtown Fort Lauderdale you get so much bang for your buck. Room had a great view of Intercoastal if you like that sort of thing which we do. The room was immaculately presented and serviced to a high standard each day. All the staff we had contact with we're super friendly and tended to our needs efficiently as required.
The only down side was Valet Parking $26 per day but it didn't actually really matter as you could park right outside of the hotel from 6.00pm - 8.00am for free and out side of these hours for $1 per hour.
Bottom line I would have no problem recommending this Hotel. Great Stay!!!
