I would recommend this hotel to anyone, it's like staying in a small condo this was the second time my husband and I have stayed at this hotel, we would recommend IL Lugano to anyone.... And take the water taxi tour it was great!! For $20 pp you can ride all day and see Ft. Lauderdale.

Il Lugano is a chic boutique hotel away from the hustle and bustle of Ft. Lauderdale but beautiful beaches nearby and stop 1 on the Water Taxi....get the intracoastal suite if you can. they do have specials is you search! fabulous Zagat rated restaurant. Get the pulled mozzarella made at your table....the best!!!

Room Tip: get intracoastal suite

Not really family hotel but fabulous for a couple. Generous size rooms and REALLY great beds. The area around the hotel is kinda creepey and not much to do. Didn't stay long so we just had breakfast....it was fine but a little on the pricey side.

The valet was awesome, Kevin Brown and David Konnig were so helpful. The room service was great but we didn't like the dinner menu at the Hotel's restaurant. The rooms are great, very spacious and having two balcony's was great.

The downsides are the pool is quite small and doesn't receive much sun at all.

We had a great stay of 3 nights in Il Lugano. Rooms are extremely spacious, very comfortable and an excellent equiped kitchen. The Italian restaurant downstairs serves amazing food and the fresh mozzarella is something not to be missed! Downsides if I have to mention something is unable to move the showerhead, mediocre service in the restaurant and the small and shaded pool area. But isn't Fort Lauderdale all about the beach, so who needs a pool? Overall service from the reception staff to the valet parking guys excellent and polite. Would return!

Room Tip: Make sure your view is on the back side of the hotel overlooking the waterways

On behalf of the il Lugano staff we appreciate your feedback and are honored to say we have thrived in meeting and exceeding your expectations. Although in fact our pool may be a shaded area we are walking distance to the beach which does offer a great deal sunlight. We look forward to having you stay at the il Lugano on your next Fort Lauderdale vacation.
