Hidden gem in Fort Lauderdale and the perfect place to refresh for a weekend. Amazing sunset view from the Intercoastal, not to mention the million dollar yachts passing by. Loved the staff, Jen at the bar and the mozzarella master!!

I found this on Tripadvisor and it could not have been more true - the hotel is great and the staff fantastic - particularly Jen in the bar - and Cherea on the front desk - just great. The staff have been so helpful and there are great eats near by. Also the view from the room is amazing.

Dear Carrie M, I am sorry that Hotwire did not disclose to you that our gated, secured and monitored parking charges were not complimentary.
