My husband and I stayed at this hotel at the end of September this year (2017). We loved the location right across from the beach, as others have said there is a main road between the hotel and the beach but that didn't bother us. We didn't drive as we flew in but there is a fee for valet parking just to be aware of. The staff were very accommodating, they upgraded our room as it was our honeymoon which we greatly appreciated. The rooms are very clean, we loved stayed in a king bed room on the corner with the view of the ocean. The free wifi was great to have and they always have a free snack offered in the late afternoon in the lobby which was really nice. They give two free drink vouchers to use at the bar in the lobby which is a nice touch. We had never been to Fort Lauderdale before and so at night we were walking along the road that the hotel is on to search for a place to eat and we were offered a ride from a man in a big golf cart, these drive all along the main roads and are free of charge, they take donations and we really appreciated the drive and his expertise on where to go. The driver took us to the main strip with all the bars and restaurants and we went to Cafe Ibiza which had amazing live flamenko music and great food. The hotel was only about a 15 minute drive from the airport and I HIGHLY recommend taking an Uber vs a cab as it is way cheaper that way. The hotel is also about a ten minute walk from a mall across the bridge if you're looking to shop a little. The pool was nice to swim in, we took a late night swim which was really nice. All in all this hotel is clean, modern and in a good location near the beach. Happy travels!
