We booked this hotel at the last minute and on the wrong night (accidentally). The concierge offered to find us listings and brought us waters while we searched for another room at 3 am. Very friendly and helpful. The valet service was fantastic also!

Substandard for this brand

Mediocre. Room was clean and reasonably comfortable but they desperately need new bed pillows. Room service food was truly terrible... very limited menu and most of what we ordered was inedible. Buffet lunch was better quality and reasonable at $15. Front desk and room service staff were friendly. Restaurant staff wasn't properly trained. This is a franchise hotel owned by an out of state company and appears to depend on the large companies in the business park in which it's located to stay in business. Lobby furniture borders on shabby giving the impression that the hotel is struggling financially. To be fair, it was very reasonably priced -- comparable to nearby brand name low amenity business hotels. Ok for a short business trip, but not recommended for leisure or long term stay.

I will not be returning

I thought from look when we walked in that we were going to have an amazing room and an AMAZING TIME..I was in room 327 on NEW YEARS 2014.. well to start off our mini refrigerator didn't work so I called to the desk and they said they would send up someone to check on it and they never came. An hour passed so I called again and they said they would send someone AGAIN.. still NO ONE. I was headed out and stopped by the front desk to tell them that I called 2 times and nothing I asked for another fridge and they said by the time I get back I would have a fridge in my room .. I said good because I might have leftovers from dinner , which I did. and it went bad because I didn't have the fridge that they said would be there.. so much money wasted... I was looking around the room and noticed the wall by the air conditioner was all bubbling up and needed to be fixed. The shower pressure wasn't good and then I went to bed.. In the morning I went to check out and told the man at the front deck about my dilemma with fridge and he said he would like to compensate me and I asked how and he said how about with breakfast vouchers.. I said ok but he only handed me 2 and we had 6 in our party. I went to see how much breakfast was and the buffet was $19.00 a person.. and that means I have to fork out $60.00 more to feed us all.. so I took the vouchers back and said can he do better and he told me NO.. I thought that was a little off so I said uuumm ok and left .. I am sure he could have done better, he just choose not to. I will NEVER use this hotel again.

Christmas family get together

The rooms are clean and beds are very comfortable with new duvets. We only had breakfast in the cafeteria but there was good variety. The hotel has free parking close by or valet parking and is central to much in Ft. Lauderdale..

Standard business hotel

Very 2006 ... Feels tired, even musty ... needs a refresh, including new carpet and more electric outlets in room. Lovely staff. On a highway, not in walking distance to anything. Pool is a nice amenity but needed skimming. Felt like a nice chain hotel on auto-pilot -- needs attention on a planning level, not a local management level.

Strange room

The room was a mini-suite with more space than appropriate furnishings. It badly needed a couch to effectively use the space. The bathroom was very mundane.

Left Lots to Be Desired

Was expecting 4 star it is really a low 2 star. Chose this hotel because I am a member and have had good experiences in the past. This hotel best feature??? Its location. First room smelled, carpet dirty and wall paper peeling off the walls Second room not much better. Bathroom shower ran and Toilet leak water. Told them everyday of my 5 night stay. Never fixed. Left $10 tip for house keeping and asked for extra towels and coffee. She took the tip and left nothing!!! When I call down they brought it 2 hours later. I was only in the room at night to sleep. If we had not prepaid, I would have left. Buyer Beware!!!
