“Great Sales Meeting Venue”
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Mavic, Inc. USA held our sales meeting at the Il Lugano last week, for 3 days and 3 nights. The meeting room had a gorgeous view of the inter-coastal and was a great size for our group of 33, plus a whole range of clothing, wheels, helmets, shoes, gear,etc. and displays. There was plenty of room left over to break into groups, etc. The service and food were top notch. The staff at the Il Lugano went out of their way to make each day run smoothly. A successful meeting and great location overall.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are suites, so there really is not a bad choice. However, reserving a room that ove...

While out of the main part of Fort Lauderdale, it was worth it. The staff are friendly and willing to help you out (including a complimentary car service), the rooms are fantastic, being large and equipped with a kitchen.

The pool downstairs faces the waterway with a spectacular view. It is also possible to get the water taxi from nearby which is definitely recommended!

No unexpected charges. Valet parking was 25 dollars a night which we were happy to pay.

Get a view of the waterway if possible, as the view of the sea has hotels and a road in the way.

Room Tip: Get a view of the waterway

Sleeping rooms were outstanding...great linens, great size, great patio. Highly recommend. We'll be back.

We did stay there the second time. The first time it was really wonderful so we decided to book this hotel again. The hotel is wonderful and very well equipped. But the service we did experience this time was not good at all. Starting with our arrival, leaving the car for valet parking the bellboy did take out all our luggage and wanted to bring it to our room right away. It did take 15 minutes and nobody showed up so my husband did go down and did take it by himself upstairs. It was standing in the lobby for 20 minutes and everybody could have taken a luggage piece. Usually there are bath robs in the room. I called at the front desk and they promised me to bring some. Returning from dinner we did still have no bath robs so I called again. After 30 min. we finally got them.
The best has been the breakfast - ordering continental breakfast for 2, omelette etc. the room service lady arrived with our order but coffee, sugar, butter, salt and pepper were missing. I called the front desk 3 times to get finally somebody on the phone to report the missing coffee etc. The room service lady did come back but she wasn't friendly anymore as she had to bring us the missing things. I completely understand who wants to have coffee for his breakfast :)) this is not what I am expecting from a nice trip to Ft. Lauderdale but luckily there are lots of other hotels to choose from.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the intercoastal have a wonderful view. Choose a room from floor 8 on and higher

We have stayed before; this time we were upgraded to a room with intercostals views which were lovely. The room was spacious as was the bathroom. As per our previous visit the noise from the refrigerator can disturb light sleepers as the kitchen area is open plan to the bed room; however it is very convenient to have these facilities.

We enjoyed cocktails in the lobby bar's happy hour where they had an interesting list of drinks available. We didn't try the hotel restaurant. The gym was small but functional.

This time we didn't have valet parking but the nearby meters started at 8am until 6pm daily and you could feed them for three hours for 50 cents per hour. As we were generally out nearly all day, we paid for a couple of hours from 8am and then by the time we got back it was free.

Also interesting are the improvements to the nearby streets/area, with more restaurants, wine bars etc opening on nearby streets where only last year there were many vacant retail premises. We particularly enjoyed Greek Islands Taverna a short walk from the hotel and Fishtales bar for drinks and live music, and Pan e Dolci an excellent Italian coffee shop and bakery (see separate reviews). A popular chain sports bar and grill was also finishing construction very close to the hotel, so the area is improving.

Room Tip: Higher up floors, intercoastal side

You will love this place; if quick, responsive service, wonderful food and BIG rooms/bathrooms are what you are looking for.
We arrived as a family of 3. Personable Bellman there to meet and greet. Check in and parking was easy. Took elevator to the 6th floor. (Big elevators, wide hallways.) Rooms were wonderfully oversized. Entered into a living room area with bedrooms on either side. Along the way; we passed a kitchenette with a full sized refrigerator, microwave, sink (with dishes and utensils), and a washer/dryer. Living room was well appointed with a big TV, Bose stereo and a comfy couch, desk and chair.
Keep going straight there is a lovely patio with 4 chairs and a table overlooking the skyline and the water. Watched many a sunrise and sunset.
Stand outs: Mrs. Vogel (GM) and Walter (Bartender)... the GM was constantly visible; recommending and advising, and the bartender is most knowledgeable about their food and beverage.
Sold me on the "strawberry blond!" (My new favorite!)
Also recommend trying their tableside prepared mozzarella. Many options available...Caprese, prosciutto, or the supreme (something of everything!).

Such a wonderful experience...
