"Nice "throw-back" hotel, close to Port Everglades"
We really enjoyed our stay! We arrived the day before our cruise and stayed one night. ALL of the staff was wonderful - from the moment we arrived until the moment we left.
The hotel is older, but well maintained. The grounds are very beautiful, and the pool is great! We enjoyed walking along the marina looking at the fabulous yachts. We had dinner at a very nice restaurant on the property called Pelican Landing - a little difficult to find, but just keep following the signs. The food was delicious, the views over the water were great, and the prices were very reasonable. We ate breakfast at the pool restaurant, The Orchid, and it was quite good, too - breakfast sandwiches, fruit, Starbucks beverages, etc. It was nice sitting outside by the pool in the sunshine while we ate.
After breakfast, we walked across the street from the hotel, up the bridge to see the ships in the port, which was fun and a nice walk. The gym is a little small, but got the job done!
I will say, the rooms don't have the same sound-proofing as the newer hotels, and our neighbors had small children who were up early! But the bed was extremely comfortable (we slept like babies!) and the room was clean.
Overall, it was a lovely stay, and I would definitely do it again!
