We had stayed at the Lugano Hotel for one night before leaving on a cruise out of Port Everglades. This is a really nice hotel. There is not much to do in the immediate area so am not sure if this would be a great choice if you were going to be in Ft. Lauderdale for very long. The taxi rides to the beach, restaurant's, etc, might start to get expensive. We had both an intracoastal room and an ocean view room. Both were quite large with great view's. The bathroom's were a nice size with plenty of amenities. Lot's of extra towel's and washcloth's. There is a kitchenette with a full size refrigerator, coffee maker, dishes, utensil's, etc. There is also a studio size washer/dryer with one complimentary detergent/fabric softener provided. We all agreed that the bed's were very comfortable with extra pillow's provided.
There is a great restaurant/bar with-in walking distance of the hotel called Shooter's. It came highly recommended by one of the guy's working the valet. There was a live band playing the night we were there and you could sit either indoor's or outside overlooking the waterway. The portion's were huge and the food and drink's were very good. So glad we decided to eat here instead of taking a cab back down to Las Olas Blvd.
Overall this is a very nice hotel, with everyone we encountered at this hotel to be extremely friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend the Lugano to anyone traveling to Ft. Lauderdale wanting to stay in a more high end hotel.
