“Excellent waterfront hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Room was clean, large and well appointed. Nice wide hallways, well decorated. Tikki bar & restaurant right on the water. Convenient water taxi just steps away that'll take you as far south as Hollywood. Already planned my next stay there.

Room Tip: If you're going last minute you can get great rates through Expedia

I stay at this property frequently and consider it a good value. The location is perfect, right across from the beach and walking distance to many great restaurants. The rooms are slightly dated, but the service is excellent and more than make up for it.

Room Tip: I always get a room with a balcony, although they are small, the view is great.

Before I rate a hotel this poorly, I like to try to give them a chance to make things better. That's exactly what I did, twice. Here's the story so you can judge for yourself.

We arrived at the hotel and waited in line to check in. There were quite a number of people, all talking positively about the hotel except one who was arguing with the desk clerk about the fact that he was promised a corner room when he booked the hotel for a 30 day stay, but they had none when he arrived. We then got our room keys by a very friendly clerk who informed us that we received an upgrade to a room with a porch. When we arrived in our room, we found it to be very worn with soiled walls and carpet. In addition the TV would not tune in any channels and the toilet flush handle was hanging out of the toilet. We grabbed our suite cases and headed towards the front desk. The friendly clerk gave us another room. This one had a working TV and toilet but was just as worn and soiled as the first. In fact this non-smoking room had multiple cigarette burns on the desk. The next day we again asked for another room and after about 8 hours got another room. While slightly better (smaller cigarette burns), it was not very good.

While the rooms had great views and the staff very friendly and tried to be helpful, that just does not make up for the hotel property itself which is very old, worn and soiled. It comes down to poor housekeeping. The walls had torn wallpaper and the doors were dirty around the handles throughout the hotel. Having come from a Hilton Garden Inn just a day before which was very nice and clean,I was severely disappointed with this Hilton hotel.

Room Tip: According to the store manager all the rooms are about the same.

I got an awesome price on Orbitz. The hotel was in a great location, the room was beautiful, large and modern. The view from my room was spectacular overlooking the marina and Intracoastal Waterway. The hotel was only minutes from the beach and a ton of restaurants in the area. A few issues that I wasn’t too happy with would be the cost for using the Wifi and the cost of self-parking. At least one of them should have been included with the cost of the room.

We stayed for two nights at the Hilton in Fort Lauderdale before heading off on a cruise. We loved it. The staff and service was excellent. The outdoor bar was great. The pool was nice - very clean and despite being outdoors was very enjoyable. We would definitely return and recommend it to anyone.

My stay was outstanding, but my issue was the SELF PARKING fee of $20. I will recommend this hotel and will mostly stay at this hotel but will put my friends/associates on notice re: the fee. Other than that the location is great, the rooms have a contemporary feel and very new. I really enjoyed my balcony, which was ajoined w/ 2 of the neighboring rooms. Very spacious ..........................................................................................................

Dear “Chris W,”
We are so pleased you stayed with us and enjoyed yourself. A note about parking fees: rates are based on the location of a hotel; our rates are among the lowest in the beach area, where parking is at a premium. Come back soon!
