I travel alot for personal recreation and I read reviews before I stay anywhere. When I come to Fort Lauderdale I usually stay on the beach and always love the hotels there. I was impressed by the reviews for this hotel and was quit confident I would love this property. However I was disappointed in a few things when I arrived.
First thing is that not all rooms have "state of the art technology" After checking in the room and finding an old box tv I asked the front desk if any rooms have flat screens. Found only rooms floor 14 and above have them. I was staying for 3 nights but was told none were available on the higher floors.
Second thing is the rooms are renovated BUT they look like paint was slapped on the walls and new shower curtain hung. The soap dish looked like it was bought at the dollar store. No where near the star rating that this hotel was given. The AC/Heat unit is old school and didn't work well.
Third thing is room service was mediocre. We just had breakfast because the rest of the menu was outrageously priced.
The staff was very courteous and the lobby appeared to be very nice. Parking is convenient, no need for valet. Free wireless is also a plus.
If you are expecting a four star hotel this is NOT it!
