I had a group of 30 people in for a meeting last week and we were all pleased with the Il Lugano. The hotel was outstanding in several areas, I felt I need to share with you. Overall: Hotel is a great little boutique. The pictures on the web are accurate which is a plus. It looks brand new inside...

This is the only hotel I'll stay at when I go to Fort Lauderdale. The rooms are beautiful and spacious, the staff always courteous and extremely helpful. The hotel is located across the beach, but slightly north of where the majority of the hotels are, which makes for a more relaxing stay. There are some terrific restaurants/wine bars/cafes right around...

Great service especially from concierge Marianne. She was wonderful. Everyone was very helpful for the most part. Bellhop didn't explain the room or hotel. (I.e. Reservations suggested for dinner). But room dated. No plugs on both sides of bed. Fan didn't work. Not worth the price paid.

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting my in-laws. I was surprised how much I liked this hotel (I don't really like Ft Lauderdale overall so I had very low expectations). For the price (a little under $300/night), I thought the hotel was very nice. Our room was unexpectedly upgraded and it was one bedroom w/king bed and living...

We stayed twice here initially in a junior suite and then in a Lugano suite both with views of the intracoastal. The rooms are really nice with full kitchen, huge refridgerator, dish washer, wash mashine and dryer. Unfortunately all appliances are extremely noisy. The bed is very comfy. However it would be time to replace the TVs with larger ones....

Great hotel for the money. This hotel isnt beachfront and walking distrance to beach was a little lengthy (4-6) blocks. Surrounding area had good bars but far from nightlife (dancing/clubs) if you dont rent a car. Id recommed requesting an intercostal view. Rooms were spacious and beautiful. In house restaurant was excellent. If this place was beachfront it'd be perfect.

Il Lugano is a 10 story 180+ room hotel on the Intercoastal on Ft Lauderdales Galt Mile. The rooms (small suites actually) feature kitchens and washer dryers so a medium or longer stay would work well. The balconies on the intercoastal side afford great boat views and afternoon sun.
