“Great Service!”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

We stayed at the hotel before a cruise. Wonderful service, comfy beds and nice linens. Bathrooms were small but sufficient. Onsite gym was a nice touch, however, very small and multiple people trying to utilize the facility. Elavators were very small but that added to the charm of the hotel. The hallway of old pictures brings you back to years past - take the time to stop and look. Cheesecake Factory right next store was very convenient. Since we arrived late in the evening and left at noon, did not get the opportunity to shop in the area. However, from what we could tell, it was a very nice location. Staff was eager to help us find transportation to the cruise port. There was some misunderstanding with the staff between the correct checkout time. One told us noon when it was actually 11a. However, called front desk and they were more than eager to accommodate a noon checkout at no extra charge.

Beautiful historic hotel. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for our anniversary. The hotel is beautiful. The service was fantastic, rooms are beautiful. The service was top notch.My only criticism would be that the carpet in the rooms could be updated.

We obtained our one night reservation through an opaque booking site, so there is always an element of suspense as to the hotel, its quality and facilities.

With this one, we were not disappointed. Although I had researched the location and the facilities, I was very taken with the pleasant Las Olas Boulevard and area, great restaurants, window shopping and people watching.

The pool was out of order for maintenance, but we were offered tram tickets to access the beaches which I thought was a nice touch.

Wifi access was available and good signal quality. There is also wired internet in the lobby.

The hotel itself is 'historic'. This can also be read as old, but this just adds to the charm of the place. If you are expecting a cookie cutter shoebox hotel, this isn't it. The lobby and walkway through the outdoor restaurant is charming and very atmospheric. Our room was in the older tower tucked away at one end of the building. It was an adventure just to find the elevator that accessed our particular floor and room.

Our room was bright, airy, ancient and had a great view over the water. The hotel has some foibles, some knocks and patches, but it has so much character and charm - we had a very comfortable bed with plenty of pillows. We were only here for one night pre-cruise but we enjoyed the whole experience..
