I love going to vacations in Fort Lauderdale, it’s a small hop from Puerto Rico (two hour flight). Recently I traveled to FT Lauderdale from March 31 to April 3 2012 to see the WrestleMania event and a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert, I stayed in this property for two reasons, first it had great reviews and second because the price was better than other hotel properties; even more, I paid less by paying in advance through a third party web site.
Usually you check in at 3:00 pm but I arrived at 8:00 am, at that moment the hotel was fully booked but the front desk employee made the arrangements to call me as soon that a room was available. She did so a little after 12:00pm; I find that was great gesture that she followed up my request for an early check in, I am very thankful for that!
The hotel has a very convenient location less than a mile from I-95, several gas stations, fast food restaurants (avoid waffle house nearby!!! Not clean with roaches).
The room was clean, the pool looked clean but I didn’t use it, also the gym looked very nice and fully equip for fit freaks. There was a daily breakfast offered by the Hotel but I didn’t wake up early to enjoy it. The house keeping staff has to improve a little because the first day after service I notice that they didn’t leave me a full set of towels and shampoo, but that was an easy fix after I spoke with a housekeeping attendant.
Overall it was a great Hotel experience; if the prices stay low I will keep on staying here.
