Review Summary


  • Amazing design and attention to detail
  • Popular nightlife destination, with multiple bars and lounges
  • Two pool decks
  • Right across from beach; beautiful ovean views from main pool and some rooms
  • Steak 954 restaurant and Bliss Spa on-site
  • Huge outdoor event space


  • Fee to use the internet
  • Hotel's huge size means service isn't very personal or attentive
  • Not all rooms face the ocean

Bottom Line

By far the sexiest of the grand dames lining Fort Lauderdale Beach, the stunning design and painstaking attention to detail here are enough to wow even the most jaded travelers; unique design elements are around every corner, like a clear staircase that takes you up through the pool. In addition, there are two pool decks, a happening scene at three bars, a steak restaurant, sleek rooms, and a Bliss Spa. However, the hotel's size means you can't count on personalized service.
