Just finishing up 4 nights at the B Ocean in Ft. Lauderdale. Very nice hotel with a great location. Close to a water taxi stop and there is a nice little neighborhood behind the hotel with a couple of nice restaurants and bars. One in particular, The Parrot, is a great local place and the owner Tim is an extremely nice guy making every customer feel welcome and special. The Birch state park across the street from the hotel is really beautiful. It's a great place to take about 1 1/2 hour brisk walk through Florida greenery, it cost us $2 per person to get in the park and was more than well worth it. We brought our beach chairs into the park and spent the afternoon sitting along the Intracoastal Waterway under palm trees watching the gorgeous boats go by on a day that was too windy on the beach. A short walk down A1A are many restaurants, shops and bars to enjoy. The hotel has a very small pool area, but we came for the beach anyway so that didn't matter. The view from our end room was stunning ... 2 panoramic windows showcasing the gorgeous ocean. The poolside bar isn't welcoming at all and the staff seems to encourage people to go to the inside bar. The rooms are nice and average sized as is the bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. The staff is friendly and curteous. The housekeeping is very timely. As much as we enjoyed our stay, we probably won't be staying at the B Ocean again. The main problem is that there aren't any balconies or places to sit outside and enjoy the ocean breezes. Also, the windows cannot be opened to enjoy the breezes either. That was the only down side, but a big one for us.
