Loved the location. There were so many places within walking distance. And not too far away by car were several plazas with shopping and eateries. Not really a spot for childless couples to get away. But we made the best of it.
very nice staff and helpful, I also enjoyed the bar downstairs. The location is good as it is far away enough from the hustle and bustle of the main drag, but is still walkable. the vending machines were not functioning and the interior hallways were very hot.
Emir the front desk attendant pick and choose who can stay at this hotel, very racist, if you don't fit a certain description or you look as though you don't fit into an elit group, your resavation will be cancelled or you will be offered a room at a higher rate..will not stay or recommend to any one ...
Great location easy access in the heart of everything Staff was friendly and pleasant everyone smiled and said hello Some items that are a challenge $21 a day to park $20 a day for the Internet some of the areas seem to be unkept the needed some cleaning.
Really nothing stood out Construction around the pool all day,Bathtubs water disnt drain,room smelled,loud music coming from next room over every night..very bad time
The rooms were clean When I arrived we were informed that the water main has been shut down and the water is not for drinking or showering. The hotel said we can get a reservation down the road(horrible location) and will cancel our reservation if we would like. The couldn't even guarantee the same rate at the other hotel. Usually when a huge inconvenience like this happens, things are comped and rooms upgraded, this was not the case and was told we could basically stay at the hotel where we made a reservation over a month in advance, or we could leave. I chose to stay because I didn't want to gamble with another hotel that I had done no research on. My experience with Bahia mar was terrible as far as customer service and guest relations
Great location. Easy to walk to the beach, nice hotel pool and friendly staff. Parking costs $26/day, but most lots around there are $40, so I guess that's kind of a deal.
We were walking distance from the beach literally across the street. Also on a very popular strip close to many bars, restaurants and novelty shopping. And pretty much less than a 15 minute drive from anywhere we wanted to go. "Liquor Store" across the street was deceiving as it had very little liquor BUT did have Fatt Tuesday Slushies. Oh also they charge $25 a day for self parking & $30 a day valet ON TOP OF a $50 per day hold (that is returned 1-5 days after you check out). Besides that
The staff was very friendly and nice. Once we got to the hotel there was only one desk attendant and two parties checking in in front of us. It was cold outside and it was already after 11, we wanted to get to our room as fast as possible. After checking in we were told that our room was in a different building and that we had to walk outside again in order to get to our room. Once we got to the room (witch was even colder than the outside temperature of 60 degrees) There was no light switch! You had to find your way over to the bed in the dark to turn on the light. Now if that wasn't bad enough the light flickered like in a bad horror movie, so we had to go with the bathroom light that had a white greenish color to it. Upon laying in bed it was so uncomfortable, the reason being that the mattress completely slumped inwards as if it hadn't been replaced in many years. This was supposed to be a romantic getaway for my boyfriend and I instead I had asked him to leave and go back home (wich wasn't too far away luckily) We never spent more than 20 minutes in this place, thats how much of a downgrade it was from our usual sleeping quaters on a boat where we both work.
Great location to everything
Location is nice $21.00 a day parking, expensive internet service. CAUTION, they have a 4 story motor lodge that is nothing like the photos they show of the rooms. It's a dive for the price! That's were we got put and we will never be back! I'd avoid this property. And the water is yellow.
Great Value for money, excellent location, friendly restaurant and very good breakfast. In the booking page and hote internet page it says the parking costs 5 oer dy but it costs 10.
Convenient location to the beach, restaurants and shopping Maid service was late afternoon
The breakfast included The lobby is not updated , it looks old , I walked shoesless and the carpet in the hall way was wet. the rooms are much better than the rest of the hotel facilities.
staff were excellent, position was close to port, and las Olas Initial appearance of hotel was alittle run down, although the rooms had been renovated and were clean.good for the price
It was a short distance to catch the water taxi. The room was too small for the 4 of us. Even the double beds were not big enough. The breakfast was not much of a choice. The smell of the hall on our floor was not appealing. The verandah was dirty so we stayed only in our room.. We clearly did not get value for money. I can say this because the first half of our vacation was spent at the Crowne Plaza and we spent less on our stay there. Then we moved to this hotel for a different experience by the sea but clearly it was a step down. This hotel is worth less than what we spent.
Good deal for the price.
the room was clean the breakfast was terrible
Staff were extremely efficient & pleasant. Location was ideal for my business needs
Staff was great. Got room with a good view. Cute room. Nice tv. Thought I would be able to see the ocean from hotel. Room smelled funky. Balcony isn't private.
The hotel is well located...and clean..The breakfast was excellent . The price was fair...We would stay there again. The pillows could be softer.
Proximity to the beach. Not ocean front but close to beach..short walk. Free breakfast was nice. Good value for the price. Hotel is dated but room was spacious and clean. Staff were pleasant. Nothing really. It looks like the hotel is possibly in the process of renovating. The rooms seem to have been updated but hallways and exterior could be updated. The railing on the terrace outside our room was broken; potentially dangerous e.g for families with small children.
Liked the buffet breakfast! Didn't like the hard beds.
access to ocean construction
Walking into the resort really felt like home. The staff was friendly and very accomodating and it felt so fancy! I really enjoyed my stay and I always stay at the Hilton when I travel, never disappoints! We had a jetted tub in the room and a view of the beach, the swimming pool overlooked the ocean which was walking distance from the hotel! Our whole experience with the resort was everything we dreamed of. Will definitely return our next trip to Fort Lauderdale!
Great service, staff, food. Great location. Hidden fees. Mandatory "resort fee" should be part of up front cost, not an "indicental" learn-about-it-upon-checkout fee. Wifi painfully slow.
I had to wait until 6pm to check in
The location was great and the rooms were very nice! The wedding we attended was beautiful. I had left a watch by the pool and checked with the front desk to see if anyone had turned it in. They simply said no and sent me on my way. However, when I checked at the pool restaurant, she asked me if the front desk had checked with lost and found. The front desk didn't even bring up lost and found as an option. Luckily, security had received the watch and we were able to get it back.
It was a great location however service and staff were average. No one really went out of their way to be helpful. We arrived at the hotel at 9 am and were not allowed into the room till 3pm. The jacuzzi tub had yellow water coming out of the faucet.
Lovely hotel, large room although suite was booked. Balcony door did not lock
Beach front and accessible to anything, nice ocean view from the room, clean hotel and it has everything we need. Front desk is horrible specially the person who checked us in. She told me that I will get a text or a phone call when the room is ready but unfortunately no one calls me back not text. I have to call and find out myself to see if our room was ready. Other than that everything was perfect.
Nice pool area, access to beach; good restaurant/bar; close to lots of activities in Ft. Lauderdale
Location and suite we stayed in The valet parking - over priced and under delivered
It was a beautiful hotel with very friendly staff. We were able to checkin early and the junior suite with the balcony views was wonderful. That the ATM charged US$3.50 to take cash out.
Stor og rumlig lejlighed, med fuld køkken. Fantastisk udsigt. Der var ingen strand i forbindelse med hotellet.
Motellets placering er god , lige over for stranden. Motellet skriver at de er handicapvenlige. Det ville have været godt hvis hotellet havde taget hensyn til gæst i kørestol ved placering af værelser . Vi skulle gå langt med kørestolen.
meget kedelig oplevelse, værelser og sengetøj beskidt ved ankomst., blev ikke forbedret trods henvendelse. alt på hotellet meget beskidt. gebyer pålagt ekstra. beliggenhed rigtig god., synd de ikke tager henvendelser alvorligt. kan kun advare om ikke at bruge dette hotel. renlighed ville hjælpe bare lidt
Storm met us at the taxi and escorted in and to our room His smile and warm demeanor set the tone for our short stay. He was excellent
We were greeted as we got out of the car and as soon as you walk into the hotel there was fresh fruit infused water and Olympic cookies. Room was clean and big enough for our group. The pool staff was SUPERB! Our waiter, Emanuel, always made sure we were taken care of and Judy made sure we always had the best seats by the pool. The gym was well equipped and even offered cold towels and fruit. Plus there was a great view of the ocean. My group will stay here every time we are in the area! $30 a day resort fee.
Pool, easy access to beach, towel and toy rental, away from restaurant/bar strip, walking distance to cvs for essentials and alcohol, easy access to Sun Trolley and bus to get to stores, museum, downtown. Expensive, resort fee, in-house restaurants served bad food and were very expensive, no close by family friendly cheaper food options, expensive beach chair and umbrella rentals, far from grocery store and other shopping
The people who work there are super friendly and helpful. Excellent!
Good location. Great views on beach side. I don't like being quoted a price on kayak.com paying that price and then having to pay a resort fee when I get there....especially when I don't know what my $60 resort fee got me. There were towels at the pool. Was that it? Went across the street to the beach, we swam and layed on lounge chairs under an umbrella...then a hotel staffer sats we either need to pay... $20/umbrella or $6/chair....why did I pay $60 in resort fees and I can't use a chair? No airport shuttle and outright dishonesty on pricing. I may stay there again, but I'm never paying a resort fee with no benefits again.
Great ocean view good location Resort hits you with lots of fees
Location was convenient. Starbucks on site, which was great. There was no communication between staff. One person told you it was okay to do something and another person said it wasn't okay. They also charge you "service" charges and don't mention that means tip so you pay tip twice unless you ask.
Judy was fantastic. Cost of drinks.
We stayed in the hotel for our anniversary and the staff was phenomenal! They took the time to draft a hand written card and special fruit/nuts/wine for our special weekend. Thank you so much to Brenda and the rest of the Westin colleagues!!
they upgraded my room! They are nice loved them
The location was great, was never loud in the area. Beach is right out the front door. Great food within .5 mile walk. walk down to Las Olas for food and fun. For a young couple, we still paid about 2x as much as our kayak rental. It is $40 a day to park your car, and it's only valet, it's unlimited use of your car, but then you add tips. There is a resort fee not included, which is not too expensive. And we did choose to pay $25 extra a night for a view, which was worth it. Pool food is not great, and service is slow-- but go down to Las Olas for food and fun.
Excellent location right on the beach, awesome customer service & extremely friendly and helpful staff. I will definitely be coming back again both for business and with my family for leisure time! Nothing.
Daryl Fuentes and Patrick were working the front desk onThursday during the day. They were very helpful when I had an administrative task I couldnt complete for a business portion of my trip. Additionally they, and the rest of the staff during my time there know hospitality naturally and made my staff wonderful after a long flight and a last minute booking. Thank you again to the whole staff!
Liked the suite upgrade. Close to restaurants. Nice valet service. Room was not stocked with towels or cleaned very well. Check-in was at 4pm but our reservation stated at 3pm. No in-room safe.
Should have been told there was a charge to park. And we paid $25/day when we could have paid $15 for just parking and letting it sit.
Location Check in
Bathrooms were good and room standards were very acceptable Restaurant seemed a bit Galban hearted and lacked sole - being picky but bar AC was way too cold
Location; felt safe as a lone traveler. Friendly staff. Excellent housekeeping staff. No in room coffee maker.
Under Construction, if a property is under construction it should be noted when booking. All of the hotel services were under par because of it
Design to the top. "W" stands for "Weird". The lobby is the "Living Room", the health club "Sweat", the pool is "Wet" and so on. Great glass shower in the middle of the room => do not share your room with someone you're not intimate with. Jelly fish tank in the restaurant with LED lights. Fur alligator on the bed with remote control in its mouth etc... I arrived on Saturday evening when the music in the "living room" (sic) was so loud, that I had to scream at the lady behind the reception to get heard. Also, the air condition was way too cold, up to a point where I got so cold in the bar, that I wouldn't have a drink.
Your employees were very helpful and kind. a little expensive,however competitive.
Beautiful hotel, great rooms, excellent in house restaurant, cool bar and lounge, wonderful staff No
Not the best or easiest to get around
The staff was friendly and verv accommodating. There was some confusion with the check in and check out times. The bathroom in the room lacks privacy.
the hotel is clean, good location & nice pools the ocean front pool was to cold they charge $34 a night to park they tried to charge me $25 just to take the goodie box & alcohol out of my room - insane
Very friendly attentive staff No help offered with luggage or to find room or to work gadgets in room. AC set to 55 F on arrival -ridiculous waste of energy. Dirty spashes on wall took 3 days to remove. Room service took 70 minutes to deliver. woken at 2am on first night by alarm radio. Woken at 6-30 am on last night by wake up call to wrong room. Not enough elevators, long waits and crowded elevators. Little things, but at that high price it should be perfect.Not worth the extra for a south view. You still could not get sun on the balcony in March. View not much different to north view, but a big difference in price.
Loved the glass shower and beach front view from the balcony. Long check in wait time.
You can dress a hotel up as much as you like but at the end of the day it's the little things that matter. No amount of cool design and edgy décor can cover up shoddy (and rude!) service, uncomfortable beds, loud and difficult to control air conditioning, or disappointing food and drink. The check in staff was rude, the cocktail waitress was rude and slow, the food at breakfast was cold, my room was hot and cold, and the bed had been made by someone who doesn't believe in tucking in a fitted sheet to eliminate wrinkles. Even at half the price it was a rip off.
Balcony. Was able to check in at 9 am Ordered 95 dollar room service. Filet and wings. Filet extra burnt. Wings dry and trash. Complained. Got no credit. Needed fridge to store insulin called and received 4 hours later. Asked for towels at night waited 2 hours to shower. Worst
Location No free wifi
Great location. Comfortable bed and room. Dated and worn out furniture and kitchen cabinets.
Nice large room and decor Hotel Pool and Lobby are very nice Restaurants are fun Missing remote, room service book, etc. upon arrival and took about 45 min to bring it up. Food prices on room service menu. View of construction site with blocked view of ocean on "oceanview room"
I have stayed at the Atlantic twice and there is literally nothing one could not like about this hotel. That my trip was not longer :)
I loved everything. Especially the staff. Marisa or Marisha ( not sure how to pronounce it) was extremely helpful. We will be coming back just because the way we were treated by the people there.
Great location right on the beach. Large, comfortable rooms. The staff allowed me to check in a few hours early since they had a clean room ready. Nightly turn down service with chocolates on my pillow were a nice touch. Front desk staff was average. At best. At a hotel of this caliber I expected a lot more courtesy and friendliness. Broken shower. No available chairs at the pool TWO days in a row. No bellhop to carry my luggage. And no apologies when I told them about my underwhelming experience.
well appointed rooms
No housekeeping No available chairs, etc for the beach
friendly efficient staff and service. we were upgraded to larger room, which felt like an apartment. The hotel appeared to be located on the beach, but there was a busy road between the beach and hotel.
The services and facilities at this hotel and the hotel staff outdoing themselves to assist you. A must: Rooms should have a better soundproof protection, especially the doors. You constanly hear noise from the corridor or even from the adjacent room through the communicating door room.
The service, food and staff were amazing Can't think of anything
I know this might sound wired but the shower, hotel showers are usually bad but this one was great! Lots of pressure and never ran out of hot water. The king bed was very lumpy and uncomfortable.
I loved that we got upgraded to a very large suite. It was a beautiful "apartment". Great hugh balcony. Nice finishes. I didn't like that there was nothing to cook with (despite the full kitchen). The kitchen was vey very dirty and I had to spend time cleaning it. Not what I want to do I vacation.
Cocobelle was a last minute single-night booking after our initial hotel turned out to be disgusting. We were thrilled to find ourselves in this simple, tidy, spacious and well scrubbed space. The 'room' was actually a small apartment with discreet kitchenette (full sized fridge), bathroom, bedroom and living area -- bigger than my apartment in NYC. Large flatscreen TV (that we didn't turn on). Furnished simply and inexpensively but with intention (think Target). This would be a perfect extended stay flat for a visiting freelancer. The air conditioner compressor ran loudly and constantly; we ultimately unplugged it to turn it off. We didn't use the clean-looking pool, or sit at the outdoor courtyard tables. This isn't a place to spend the day lounging and making new friends, but a superior home base a couple blocks from the beach. Young suburban straight couples would feel at home, The mattress was springy, and not in a great way. PS: I wrote this review without scrolling down to see the wide range of ratings. I was surprised to see such low scores between the high ones. This is not a luxury resort but is thoroughly inoffensive and good at being what it is.
The room was great and the grounds/pool area looked very well kept. The location was perfect for my day of business. I plan to return for a leisure weekend.
Great little find! It's not on the beach but actually tucked back in a very quiet little area. The German manager was very friendly and everything was very easy to take care of. Thanks and we'll be back!
NOTHING. EVERYTHING. I would not stay here, they are not accomodating,the staff is rude and inconsiderate. There sheets were terrible, and the room was dirty.
View and location Rooms are starting to run down already - maids screaming in the hallway - room not very clean
Rooms are stylish, well concepted and executed. Baths and beds and interior design is well done. Rooms have great views and are quiet. This hotel and the W are the two best hotels in Fort Lauderdale and this is a great value. Close to restaurants and the beach. Slight access issues, but once you've stayed there you figure it out and its fine, the location offsets any access challenges.
Room and view was wonderful! Staff was helpful, and the pool was relaxing. Loved the love music at the pool. Breakfast at the hotel resturant cost us a pretty penny.
Great location. Great last minute deal thru Kayak. I will definitely stay again. My room was RIGHT BY THE ELEVATOR... bad move. You hear everythjbg coming in and out. Also, the chef... Well, let's just say the meal I had wSnt great. Actually, it wasn't good either.
This was a great place to stay. It was very nice and looked more modern than most of the hotels on the strip. Staff very friendly and helpful. Most rooms had a beautiful view of the ocean! The higher your room the better. Beds were very comfy. Room amenities: Keurig coffee maker, refrigerator, ice bucket, 4 glasses, safe, hair dryer, shampoo/conditioner/bath gel dispenser in shower, iron/board, mirrors on the closet doors, 2 bottles of water daily They also offered 2 welcome drinks from the bar upon arrival, free beach towels and 2 free beach chairs daily. Location: The location of this hotel was good for us. It is located at the corner of A1A and Sunrise Blvd. The beach was right across the street and this section of the beach wasn't as crowded. We did not need to rent a car. There was plenty of things within a block surrounding the hotel. There was a Thai sushi place, 24hr pizza place, Mediterranean/Vegan spot, deli/sandwich shop, ice cream, popcorn, Subway, 7 Eleven. There were also several souvenir shops, a pub and a couple of other small restaurants. We rented a scooter from Fun Rentals right behind the hotel so we could explore a little further. Great transportation without paying for valet parking. We also used the beach shuttle ($3/person). Other transportation options include Trolley ($1/ride), City bus (bus stop right out front), cab, Uber, bike rentals. The nightlife is about a mile south of the hotel (30 min walk) on A1A. The Galleria mall was about 1/2 mile west on Sunrise blvd...not far at all. Overall this was a great place and we would stay here again. The pool was sort of small though. I would have liked a microwave as well though. Restaurant in hotel was kind of expensive so we never ate there.
Great view, location - nice rooms. Bed was way too comfortable!
The personal are professional and very polite.
The woman at the front counter was extremely helpful and friendly. She immediately saw our daughter who is two and offered to have us a crib sent up immediately. Hotel restaurant server was also excellent. Gave us great service and the food was great. Seemed a little too "uppity" for our family. It always seemed as if someone was looking for a tip. My husband went down to get a luggage cart to take our bags downstairs and the guy wouldn't let him have the cart. Said it was a "liability". I've been to a lot of hotels and always used my own luggage cart. It's not a liability for heavens sake. It just means someone won't get a tip. Also the bed was not very comfortable but that's just a personal opinion. It could be very comfortable to someone else.
Friendly staff,clean,close to beach. Nothing negative
The staff is friendly and accumulating. Easy access to beach front. Updated lobby and rooms. Near liquor store. Don't worth the $200+ a night rate I paid. It looks and feels like an old Holiday Inn that was renovated. The view from the rooms of the beach is only a half view as the building is blocking the rest. The carpet was stained. The shower had mold on the grout and caulked in areas. The A/C only kicked on when it wanted to. The pool is the size of an above-ground pool. I paid the rate because the reviews and pictures looked appeasing but it turned out to be a front. Also, it is not an adult only hotel; many, many families present and being very loud and obnoxious. 2-star rating. Only stay here if you find a rate for under $100 a night. Very, very disappointed.
Very comfortable bed. Rooms are nice. Location to beach is great. Parking cost is $30/night. You can hear every sound through the door.
Very, very friendly staff, cosy and hospitable atmosphere, nice pool and spa, free water and coffee in the room, free internet
Everything looks clean, great location, friendly staff
Nothing Was cold unfriendly local clicks hang out nosy guests up all night loud pool noise
the staff and the excellent service
They were nice rooms clean and close to the beach It's not tht I didn't lik but I didn't know it was a gay hotel maybe a little more of telling when it comes to stuff lik tht
Maggie was quite accomdodating and friendly. Super location and excellent value for money. Would stay there again It was straight out of the 60's so it might not appeal to someone expecting all the creature comforts of a brand new hotel. For those of us that travelled in the 60's though, it brought back a lot of memories.
Location, Location, Location, a little gem amongst the really big high rises hotels
Location was great and staff very friendly and helpful. Had more amenities in the room than expected. Needs a good, detailed cleaning. Air conditioning unit couldn't keep up with the heat (is old)
because it is close to the shuttle to convention center for our meeting the attittute of the owner/manager is very bad. She let me to wait from 10:00 am to 12:30pm in order to check out (she should be there from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm according to their schedule), which made me miss an important meeting.
The rooms were clean and large, we stayed in one of the kitchenettes and it was larger than most first apartments. The bed was needing replacing.
La ubicación y la decoración, realmente es tranquilo Pudieran ofrecer una barra de desayuno ya q no hay muchas opciones cerca.
Awesome location, clean rooms, nice people (both staff and guests), nice pools, stress free Make sure to bring your own soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions
The hotel was great! We got the king deluxe and the size was perfect! The hotel was very clean! I didn't like that we had a visitor for only three hours and they still made them pay $10 dollars for parking. I wasn't a big fan of Jasmin, she had a little bit of an attitude but the rest of the staff were very nice.
The person who welcome was so nice I wish I got here name. She lived on property and was so nice. The bed was very uncomfortable. The outside and surrounding property was awful. Would not stay there again until everything is fixed up.
Great pool setup, nicely landscaped with friendly staff. Rooms were old and a bit tired.
Pool, big HD TV,jacuzzi, fridge,stove, micro, bathtub and friendly helpful staff
Since we were a couple blocks from the beach the pools we're calm and quiet. We arrived a fewhile hours early and the staff was very accomadating. We would stay again if headed to Fort Lauderdale. The good restaurants were quite a ways away.
The room smells smoke
Staff was friendly and location was good. Just a short walk to the beach and shops. Good value. Mattress was basic and pretty firm. The room, in particular the bathroom, was dated and in need of renovations. The pool was right in front and not very private from the street or other rooms. Decorative fountains had green water that needed to be cleaned.
