Oldest Hotel In Fort Lauderdale. I Think Haha.
It was raining and hailing like crazy! Like sheets of rain coming down. Pulled up and they helped us with all out bags and had towels up front for people. That's very thoughtful. Was greeted by a lovely Dede. She was so sweet and very knowledgeable. We got in early and our rooms weren't ready but we had so much to do. So she assisted us in upgrades to rooms that were just cleaned. And even helped with some discounts since we were upgrading two rooms. Got us in and even called later to make sure our rooms were up to our standards. Penthouse corner suites baby they were amazing. Anyway everyone was really great and welcoming. And the area is mind blowing! She really was a great worker and human being. We will be back forsure. Uber Driver told me it was the oldest hotel in Fort Lauderdale. Not sure how true that is but it has been open since 1936. Would've never guessed. Amazing gym as well. Best one I've been to. Don't think about it. Just book it and stay here. You'll be happy you did.

Exceptional Hotel with shocking surprise
The hotel was beautiful, in a wonderful location, the staff were all excellent. We were shocked to find an envelope in the Courtyard with pornographic images but we turned it in to the hotel staff so the kids playing in courtyard wouldn’t see it.
