Fodor's Review

On Las Olas Boulevard, just steps from boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries, Fort Lauderdale's oldest hotel (circa 1936) evokes a time bygone with historical photos gracing hallways, and guest rooms outfitted with antique oak furnishings, ornamental palm trees, and a bold tropical color palate with a Tommy Bahamas throwback flair. Guest rooms are in either the original Historic Tower or the more updated Executive Tower. Penthouse suites in the 12-story Executive Tower

have balconies with sweeping views of Las Olas, New River, and the downtown skyline. Enjoy quiet moments in the spruced-up courtyard, try the brunch at Indigo, dinner at Wild Sea, or check out what's happening on "the lawn"—20,000 square feet adjacent to the hotel often hosting festivals and markets. The pool area is across the street along the Intracoastal Waterway.

Pre Cruise Stay

I really liked this hotel, although the room was small for the price, and the bathroom was very small. But, as a solo traveler and a one night stay, not a big deal. The main restaurant the next morning for a very relaxing precruise breakfast was wonderful. The garden area outside the lobby is beautiful, lush, with pretty furniture, etc. I would definitely stay here again.
