“Magical Experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2012

This hotel was amazing. From the moment we arrived the staff was so warm and accomodating. They truly went out of their way to be helpful and make us feel so welcome. It was like being a guest in someones home. The rooms were beautiful and clean. The property was stunning and well maintained. The location is quiet and about a block away from the beach and the hustle and bustle of the strip. It is a quick walk up the street if that's what you want. Next there is the restaurant on the property with amazing food! It was truly a magical experience and I can't wait to go back!

My husband took me for my birthday to The Pillars. We live very close by, but I was really interested in dining at the Secret Garden Restaurant. We were not disappointed. The service was wonderful and welcoming. Our room was tropical luxury. The property was a secluded tropical paradise. The dinner was AMAZING! We enjoyed a beautiful dinner under the stars on the Intracoastal. We can't wait to return.

Pillars is a lovely boutique hotel situated just behind the Seafront Boulevard.
A nice English Colonial style hotel with an excellent restaurant.
Both excellent food and exceptional service!
When you come from Europe don't order a glass of wine but order a bottle.
This is the case in all of Florida by the way.

We spent five nights recently at The Pillars and it was so enjoyable that we wanted to extended out stay. The service is top notch and every request was honored quickly and with a genuine smile. The surrounding area is high energy Ft. Lauderdale beach, but once you walk through the front door of this intimate hotel the outside world goes away. Our room was complete with a bar area, mini fridge and micro-wave. Also in the closet is a fully stocked mini bar and safe. The pool area is wonderful with a views of the intercostal. The loungers are the most comfortable of any place we have stayed and are perfect for a entire day of relaxing in the sun. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available either inside or on the dock. Our dinner on dockside was an experience with great food and the front row seat for a beautiful sunset.
The room was clean and decorated in a warm Florida style with an upscale contemporary twist. Linens are Frette..who would expect less from The Pillars. We are planning another escape to this great little gem in the future. Thanks again to the staff for a perfect stay!!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms offer more privacy from the pool area, but there is no elevator for handicapped a...

We recently enjoyed an excellent stay at The Pillars prior to our Caribbean cruise. We stayed there for 5 nights. It is a very nice small boutique hotel. The property is beautiful. The staffs were very friendly. All was very clean and the area peaceful and quiet. It is ideal for relaxing. It is in a great location just a couple of hundred yards from the beach but quiet also. The hotel backs on to a giant waterway with yachts and water taxis passing by, with lovely sights in the backdrop.

Great service, great location, beautiful pool/garden area, watertaxi stop at the hotel. Dinner at the dock overviewing the causeway, minutes away from the beach... Would highly recommend this hotel, possibly one of the best boutique hotels I have ever been. Very helpful in recommendations and reservations for restaurants closeby as well. Very romantic, relaxed and personal style, very different to the other (big) hotels in Fort Lauderdale. In short, had a great time!

We recently enjoyed an excellent stay at The Pillars prior to our Caribbean cruise, the location by the waterfront is relaxing and yet the hotel is close to the beach and numerous restaurants.
The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.
