“The Wreck Hotel”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

Room is musty and dirty. Sneezed every time I enetered my room. Pillows are awfully soft with no support and bed left my back hurting every morning. I put on new white socks and walked from the bed to the bathroom and the bottom of my socks were black. Called front desk to report that shower drain was backing up. Of course there was never a response or fix. The restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. Exceptionally slow service and I never received a refill on my drink during my entire meal. Their chicken tacos were supposed to have a citrus and lime flavor according to their menu but were over cooked dices of drano marinated mystery food. Complained to staff but they never showed up again until time to pay the bill. No manager ever showed up to apologize. My change for the meal was $1.34 and she brought me back a dime and 24 pennies which I let her keep the pennies as a tip. Everyting at this hotel is expensive including drinks, snacks and especially parking. The bar is called the Wreck Bar. That would be a better name for the entire hotel

Room Tip: If you want a good room, stay somewhere else!

This is a great location with a wonderful beach. We stayed in the beach towers and had a corner room with floor to ceiling windows. We laid in bed and had breakfast and watched the waves roll in. Incredible ocean and beach view. While this is an older resort it has been updated. Our room was large and the beds were the incredible comfortable beds that Sheraton promises. Comfort! The staff was wonderful and very accomodating. There were lots of families with younger children that were having a great time at the beach and in the pool. You do have to pay for parking at most of the resorts so expect to pay at least $25.00 to park for one night. Remember that this is an older resort that has been updated but it is very clean and comfortable. I can't wait to return but next time I will stay for at least two nights.

Room Tip: Stay in the beach towers if you can. The building is located right on the beach so all you have to...

Dear Arline H: Thank you so much for sharing your glowing review about your stay at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel. Our location is ideal, as we are one of the few hotels actually located on Fort Lauderdale Beach and in close proximity to local restaurants, the cruise port, and unique shopping. Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you back to Sunny Fort Lauderdale Beach!

Oceanview rooms on floors 4 and 5 are good. Most on 3 rd floor are obstructed by trees.
2nd floor...., I'd want some money back. Air conditioner loud enough that you will have to put TV volume up. Wrevk bar is nice

We stayed here for 2 nights in April before a cruise. Everything we needed was on site. The front desk employee, Fitzroy Dias, was an exceptional addition to our stay. I don't think we had an expectation of the hotel because it was going to be a layover before the cruise but because of Fitzroy and all the employees at this hotel made it special. Thanks to everyone at the hotel!

Room Tip: We were able to use points to stay on the Club level. Do it if you can!

Stayed for business but felt like I was on vacation. Rooms need to be updated but there is enough to do within walking distance that I spent very little time actually in the room.

Room Tip: Beachfront views available on upper floors. Lower floors have the views blocked by trees.

In my opinion nobody could be disappointed with this hotel. From the minute my son and I arrived
from England we were thrilled with it. The decor was clean bright and welcoming. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bar and restaurant excellent. We were lucky enough to stay in the Beach Tower (try to get a room here - worth the extra cost) the views were magnificent. We would love to re visit again one day as we both loved Fort Lauderdale and the Beach Hotel. Thank you everyone for fantastic holiday.

Room Tip: Corner suites in the Beach Tower have fantastic views

The hotel was clean, w/comfortable rooms, 2 infinity pools, several bars, a restaurant, and on-site Starbucks coffee. It has a nice workout room & spa services. We stayed during a tropical depression, and there were people constantly mopping up the water that guests brought in, amazingly keeping the floors clean. It is just steps to the beach, and about a 2 block walk to the restaurant and shopping district. Very nice.
