Fort Lauderdale is an expensive place to stay, so with five team members in town for a trade show, I did a lot of searching to find the right balance of quality, price and proximity to the convention center. Fortuna Hotel was the second-cheapest three-star hotel that met all my criteria. Since I'd been unimpressed by the cheapest option last...

Great place to stay! Rooms are clean, and bright with great art work and a retro vibe. Staff is friendly and available 24 hours a day. One block from the beach made this hotel a perfect choice. We would definitely return in the future!

I looked for a long time when I was booking a hotel in Ft Lauderdale, I had quite a tight budget with the £ being poor against the $ at the moment, but I didn't want to compromise on location, security or comfort. Fortuna ticked all the boxes, the room was comfortable and immaculately clean! Beds were nice and the...

I found the Fortuna in a pinch for a business trip and had very little idea of what to expect. Google maps showed it was close to the beach and close to the airport, which was good enough for me. The hotel is in a set of vintage 40s/50s era motels that have been totally refurbished and they gleamed white...

My husband and I stayed one night in 1106 at La Fortuna. Being small business owners ourselves, we like to book and use local vendors when we travel. I was excited to stay in a "newly renovated" boutique hotel. I was initially disappointed to see the pool out front was drained and taped off. The check in staff were polite...

I think my first apartment was smaller than this hotel room. Huge walk in closet plus another closet. Even with the king size bed and sitting area there was room for several people to do yoga.

Very nice little hotel. Close to beach, nice atmosphere. Small quirky things that needs work...need more trash cans, courtyard chairs, HEATED pool. Waste basket in room so small, ended up using store bag for garbage. Lighting not the greatest. Rooms could use a floor lamp in each.
