What an amazing experience... we stayed at Cheston House before embarking on a cruise from Port Everglades. The staff are personable and helpful. The guests were friendly as well, with no attitude. The grounds were well kept, with some pretty hibiscus flowers in bloom. Our suite was spacious and comfortable (the interior was a bit dated and not perfectly kept...

We just visited Cheston House again and, as always, had a wonderful stay. The hotel is still clean, fun, inviting, and just a great home in Fort Lauderdale. Not to mention that our room had THE most comfortable bed! The fitness room is new, and the property is beautifully maintained by the congenial manager Chuck and his staff, Earl and...

This was a last minute trip over the long holiday weekend for me. I made my plans two weeks prior to the Fourth, during which most, if not all, of the gay resorts are sold out. I initially contacted both the Elysium and the Worthington, but neither had availability. The staff at the Worthington, however, recommended I try Cheston House....

Having been to Fort Lauderdale many times and staying at the same place each time, we decided to try something new and made our reservations for Cheston House.

This small hotel is a block away from A1A (the main beachfront street), and 3 blocks away from Sebastian Beach (mainly gay beach). The outside is beautifully landscaped with lots of vegetation surrounding the pool area. The rooms were clean, spacious and well equipped. The staff was very courteous and professional.

I am so very impressed with the Cheston House. Last week was my 2nd stay, and will make this my 'place to stay' whenever in Fort Lauderdale.
