We usually don't stay at non branded hotels, but for one night we gave it a shot. It was so worth the risk. The place was cute, easy to park, secure and the room was clean and had everything we needed. Well, the TV remote needed batteries, but really, not a problem. Staff was awesome. If I had to give it a negative, it is that there isn't an elevator. But we were helped to our room with our luggage, so again, not a problem for us, but it could be for others. I would make sure to request a ground floor room if stairs are a problem for you. We will stay again next time we are in the area.
We arrived for a two night stay following a cruise. We were warmly greeted by Billy who checked us in. Throughout our stay Billy was extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful. He went above and beyond to accommodate all of our requests. He even changed our room to a larger one on the ground floor so we didn’t have to climb the stairs with all our suitcases. The room was airy, clean, and inviting with everything needed. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was cleaned daily. Thanks also to Lisa who checked us out at the end of our stay. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Fort Lauderdale.
