“Easy & convenient for Central Broward”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Found this hotel after searching for a way to use my MegaBonus cert from Marriott and forgot about this place. One thing I enjoy is how easy it is to get in and out of the property and I-595. It is also 2 blocks south of Broward Blvd (main artery) and also just minutes to the turnpike. The property is also within walking distance of the Cornerstone properties - so if you are meeting with DHL or the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, its a very short walk :)

Free parking and I also obtained free internet - so my geek side is happy.

The restaurant and bar seemed to be quite busy at night, and the prices seemed much MUCH better than I'm used to seeing. The bed was really comfortable with a large variety of pillows -- I really hate getting into a king size bed and there are only 4 pillows for it!

The staff was exceptional - and checking in and out was very easy.

I really appreciate having this hotel choice in Central/West Broward as 95 can be a pain at times.

Room Tip: Not sure you can have a bad room here.

Nothing spectacular about this hotel, but every aspect was professionally done. Good service, good food (but a little overpriced for the area), spacious, well-appointed room, easy parking adequate exercise facility, and adequate (but uncrowded) pool.

Room Tip: If you are staying here, definitely plan on the nearby Kristof's Kafe for breakfast. Great panca...

My husband stayed there last month for one night. We checked in really late (around 4am), the front desk personnel was so kind to extend our checkout till 2pm. Next time we're in the area, I definitely plan on staying there again. We didn't have the opportunity to check out any of the services that the hotel offered but I will say that it's a beautiful hotel with a great staff.

I booked on line at the hotels' own web site for a club level room and when I showed up at the desk they tried to give me a non-club level room. They claim to not notice that my booking was for a club level room. And of course, they were out of the club level rooms.
After much haranguing they gave me a "semi-accessible" room for handicapped folks that had club level access.
So was it a computer error (not likely) or just plain dishonesty (likely).

The staff at this hotel work very hard to be helpful, Unfortunately, the location is in the middle of a concrete jungle with nothing nearby. The facilities are getting worn. I had to drive into town to get a decent dinner. The lobby was taken over with elderly cruise passengers, which prevented my use of the "business center" to print documents. The women's softball team was equally happy with the facilities. I won't go back, unless I'm with a large group, which they cater to.

We stay at this hotel every year with our four children during the holidays. We love it! The hotel iis modern, beautiful, and clean. The walls are thick and we sleep well. The staff goes out of their way to make sure everyone is happy. Our kids love the beautiful pool. The workout room is clean and well-equpped. The location is very handy as it's near major highways and restaurants, shopping, etc. We always feel so welcome here and recommend it for business as well as family travel.

Room Tip: We've stayed in a variety of rooms and suites and they've all been good.

The location itself is OK - close to Broward and not too far from Sawgrass. However it is almost impossible to find. There are no signs. It is off the road, behind trees in a commercial park.
It is not visible from the road. The hotel directions state driving on S. Pine Island Rd - you will see the hotel. You will NOT. I was so stressed driving up and down and round one way streets - it was awful. Even after finding the place it is not easy to find at night. I was more stressed after this stay than at any hotel; the rooms were fine except the plate on the towel holder was falling off and needed to be fixed. Which shows a lack of proper housekeeping management. Also one day I found a bunch of towels in a bag hanging on the outside of my door- why?
Hated the lobby lighting - but that's just me - not my choice.
