Thank You, Il Lugano, for being there for us when our original hotel screwed up our booking and we were 'homeless' for our vacation. Thank you for the awesome junior suite complete with a washer/dryer for a reasonable price, the absolutely SPOTLESS room, the nicely sized kitchen, and outdoor balcony to dry the wetsuits and diving equipment.
We were originally staying in Miami and when our hotel screwed up, they left us on the street with no compensation on a sold-out weekend. Yeah, DON'T EVER stay at The New Hotel in Miami at 7337 Harding Ave. So, I was initially cranky about staying an hour north of our intended vacation, but this hotel made it hard to stay mad. This room was so comfortable and clean and staff was very helpful for our needs.
In our Junior Suite: upscale bedding that felt clean, a good hair dryer, a good shower, dishwasher, two large closets, two tvs, balcony with a table and chairs, makeup mirror, extended tv channels for a movie night, bose soundsystem, plenty of lighting options, ceiling fan over the bed (my fave) and a full size refrig, also really friendly valet guys.
Things to know: it's about 3 blocks from the beach and there are some beachfront properties that will block your view of the sunrise, however, it's on the intercoastal and still close to the beach. The pool area is small, but there are nice lounger/cabanas to hang out in that face the intercoastal.
