Let me tell you a secret.The Pillars is a fantastic hotel hidden amongst the corporate bland giants right in the heart of Fort lauderdale beach life.
The location is wonderful, literally with a dock on the Intracoastal Waterway and two minutes from the beach and a five minute drive to downtown or Las Olas shops and restaurants.
The Pillars is small but beautiful with only 18 rooms each furnished to the highest standards with luxury beds and linens. Our room opened onto the central terrace where the pool is surrounded by lush vegetation providing an ideal sun bathing area which had some natural shade for when a cooling five minutes is needed. Towels are laid out on the sumptous loungers each with sun shade either around the pool or on the dock area. Iced water and tea is provided and there is coffee in the reception area.
Breakfast was included with our room rate which can be taken in the restaurant or on the dock. The choice was amazing all freshly prepared and served to a very high standard. By the way if you want dinner at the Pillars make sure you book as during our stay it was very busy, probably because the choice, quality of food and location are excellent.
I guess by now you are well aware that we enjoyed our stay at The Pillars.
Transport to other parts of Fort Lauderdale could not be easier.The water taxi service stops at the hotel's own dock linking with downtown or other tourist attractions and get on the right boat and the commentary by the crew is hilarious. But wait there's more because how many hotels have you stayed at where, when finding us waiting for a late taxi, takes you in her own car to your destination. Fantastic service, fantastic location, fantastic staff. Do stay at the Pillars.
Many many thanks to Caroline and all her staff.
