Kendra and Jonathan were ABSOLUTELY Wonderful A1 customer service is definitely what they providedThey explained every single detail in regards to the room, dining, parking, events being held at the hotel, local things to do and much more

The room was very nice It was clean, the towels were great quality compared to a lot of hotels I’ve stayed at recently, elevators were clean I also like the fact that there was a microwave on each floor to accommodate the guests that needed oneI will definitely stay at this property again in the futureMy opinion for the negative reviews I read, closed mouths don’t get fed A hotel should not receive a bad review because you didn’t speak up for them to address your issues with your stay while there There are a lot of staffing issues due to COVID and unfortunately the hotel industry is probably seeing a impact just like every other businessThanks again for wonderful stay away from home!

I’ve been traveling to this area often for work and have had a hard time finding a decent hotel in the area This Renaissance met all of my expectations Clean, quick and friendly service, updated rooms, quiet and has a nice gym

See Hugo if you go to the restaurant, he’s fantastic!The beds here are SO comfortable I slept great every night I also liked that while they don’t have a microwave in the room, they have one for guests in the grab and go areaMy only wish is that they had coffee options before 7am, as I’ve been heading out early for work I’m happy to have had a great customer service experience after what feels like far too long Will be staying here going forward when I travel here!


While the hotel itself was clean with an attractive lobby, the customer service was below what I would expect You must give 24 hours notice if you want your room cleaned and then I would recommend that you follow up to make sure your request is recorded I stayed Thursday through Monday and although I requested the room be cleaned twice, it was never documented in the computer and therefore never cleaned

I had to request twice for someone to come get the dirty towels from the room and getting a full set of clean towels was a chore The housekeeping staff was less than accommodating , as I had to chase down a cleaning cart to get fresh towels as the chamber maid ignored me while pushing the cart right by me Certainly not worth the money and I would not return

We got a handicap room (did not ask for it) on the third floor with a view of the rooftop of the restaurant complete with all the mechanical doodads The rug was wet, the room was cold and damp and there was a strange gurgling noise that kept me up all night ( like being in an aquarium) I wanted to change rooms, but my husband was exhausted (we arrived really late) and was too tired to change and went straight to bed

When we checked out, the clerk asked how our stay was and I told her She apologized, gave me a cookie and a Starbucks certificate (actually she offered us breakfast, but we did not have time) She said the manager would call me to discuss our stay, but THAT NEVER HAPPENED Considering the room was a couple hundred bucks, you would think the room would have been better It was supposed to be a 4 star hotel, it was not In their reply: “We would have loved to know this when it happened so that we could have rectified the situation” You were told You chose not to contact us (left my phone number and name) Guess you had no intention of any reparation for a sub-par room

Natasha Patten

This hotel is one of a kind! With great attention to details, wonderful service with our room and restaurantMy partner and I booked for two night, but we ended up extending our stay! We enjoyed all of the accommodations, friendly services, and comfort we received Oh and the cookies are soooooo good!!! My partner could not get enough of those! Big shout out to Cece- who made our stay wonderful from checking us in, taking care of any discomfort we may or may not have felt, to being friendly and welcoming! Cece we appreciate you! When ever we went to the counter she ALWAYS greeted us with a smile

When we came down for breakfast or to go explore she greeted us with good morning! Your kindness in meeting our needs made our stay special She truly made our stay memorable! Thank you Cece for the hospitality you’ve shown! 🙂 we would like to also shout out Robert in the Restaurant, it was great being served by you! Your kindness and willingness to meet our needs was truly appreciated!


Prior to our arrival to the hotel, we received a phone call from the Front Office Manager, Ramy concerning our room He stated that there was a guest at the hotel that needed our room which was a handicapped accessible room Without hesitation I expressed to him yes! As long as we had a room I was truly grateful

Well because our willingness to switch rooms with the guest, our stay was upgraded as well as we were placed on the highest floor Our overall stay thus far has been truly blessedThe front desk, the restaurant, the hotel stay and the banquet staff have truly exemplified the level of professionalism and standards that the Hilton brand has to offer! I’m truly glad that our church, True Holiness Tabernacle of Prayer, chose to use the Doubletree by Hilton in Sunrise, FL for our Holy Convocations 2022!

Hotels can always be a challenge no matter what brand but this one was fine despite some room for improvement Its not cheap, stayed in the 1 bedroom suite $$ traveling with my pup so having the corner room with separate bedroom is a must Full kitchen and mostly remodeled except for the old tub with no safety bars & very low toilet making it a challenge for anyone over 50! 😉

If they just finished the job it would be a 5 star Location on 95 and lots of nice grassy areas to walk your pup Noticed some mold in the corner so again a more thorough maintenance upkeep of these pricey rooms would help Staff very nice & accommodating Better than other properties, no bugs at least and nice pool area


The location is okay It’s in a business park so you don’t real know it’s there but still very accessible to the highway, restaurants, beaches and entertainment Breakfast is included so that’s a plus and it’s good

There were scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, biscuits, bagels, muffins, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal and cereal everyday day, along with cold and hot beverages The rooms are decent and clean but the furniture and the kitchen within your room could stand an upgrade Online there’s an option to select 2 queen beds; however, this location only has rooms with king beds The staff is very welcoming and accommodating I’d stay here again

Nabilah Miah

Has to be one of the worst hotels out of the 247 Marriott locations I’ve been in They don’t return phone calls or emails in a sufficient manner From the most minor detail to the major they will do everything possible to come up with excuses to not solve your issue

My wallet was swollen with cash and coins on a day housekeeping was not suppose to enter, having two messages the day before and morning off stating no one would come in Reported it and called the police Pompano Beach Police stated this is the most popular location they get phone calls for and they told me it is the most unprofessional and confused team around the areaTheft occurred in a large sum and the hotels response was we interviewed our housekeeping members and they didn’t take it No one in their right mind will agree to theft especially if it was executed undetected Lack of customer service at this hotel and they will not make the customer happy not even with points for their errorOlder hotel with terrible management It is in desperate need of remodeling and new carpets The grill works once in a blue moon and if you raise concern, they shut you outStayed over a month and it had to be the worse experience Hilton all the way, switching to the better brand where the GM calls to apologize if there’s a light bulb that isn’t working

benjamin plazek

This is one of the best Hampton Inns I have stayed in It was stylish and modern and It looked like it had been recently remodeled I was very impressed with how nice the room and building looked compared to other hotels in the area

Everything was clean and in working order Breakfast was very good and all the staff were friendly and courteous This hotel also had vending machines plus the lobby market place which was nice Also in a great location close to shopping and restaurants I really love Hilton’s mobile check in, which made my life so much easier when I got to the hotel late and could just go straight to my room I would definitely stay here again next time I am in the area

Kathy Thompson

Not only was I highly impressed with the room and the cleanliness of it, but I was also very much impressed with the excellent level of customer service my family and I received All front desk and cleaning crew were very pleasant I would recommend them over and over

My sister and I took our Lysol wipes to clean the room down in its entirety and imagine our surprise when not a speck of dirt could be found throughout the entire room, bathroom, beds and microwaves nor doors That was an amazing experience The breakfast was just as pleasing as there was an array of breakfast items to choose from, whether it was hot or cold I would have rated them 10 STARS if I could

Maddison Stew

A friend and I had drove into Ft Lauderdale from Tampa to visit friends Of course, on these kind of trips something always goes wrong We found ourself without a place to stay at 10PM

We desperately called over 10 hotels in the area Finally we looked a little further and that’s when we found our sweet savior Connie She took care of us and offered us a room at an extremely fair price When we got there she greeted us as if she was an old friend! This is my first Google review but I was so impressed by Connie’s service I decided to make one! She deserves a raise, it’s hard to find service people that actually care about patrons As for the rooms, they were nice The pictures online aren’t very accurate because they seem to be updated and pretty modern The bed was comfortable, soft pillows, etc The room was clean as well We got a late check out and slept in Nothing bad to say here!

Villa Venezia provided a fantastic experience for my daughter and I The staff literally could not have been nicer to us The room was comfortable, the grounds were pretty, and the pool area was clean and very enjoyable

Nathan Trott

My partner and I recently spent 4 nights/5 days at the Cabanas Guesthouse and Spa The highlight of the stay was most definitely the staff They were always very kind, sociable, and accommodating

The grounds were meticulously kept giving it a luxurious feel The other guests staying on property were all very friendly as most were couples looking for a relaxing vacation Some guests using a day pass were a little too “friendly” for our liking We stayed in a Waterfront King room which was clean and comfortable Our only complaints is the bed was a little too firm for our liking and the AC struggled against the Florida heat Overall, our stay was top notch and we’d recommend considering this quaint getaway for your next trip!

Robert Gioia

We always look forward to going to the cabanas guest house The owners and staff are very friendly and go out of their way to help you The pools, hot tub, and grounds are always clean and well-kept

It looks like a tropical oasis We had a chance to use the cabana spa on this trip and that was an amazing experience Everyone there was very friendly and we look forward to seeing them again on our next trip next month* Thank you John, Tim, William, Carlos, Tony, And MichaelSee you soon, Mark and Rob#themichiganboys

Kyle Ponder

Thank you Spa Cabanas for an amazing vacation, as soon as we arrived I knew we’d love it William and John were super kind and welcoming The grounds are beautifully kept and the staff works hard to make sure you never want for anything

I stayed here for the first time with my family including my infant son I was very impressed with the cleanliness and upkeep of the hotel room, lobby, dining area, and surrounding areas The breakfast is complimentary and there are a lot of great choices

Also the staff was very helpful and very sweet I want to especially recognize Sarah who very kindly allowed my mom and I back into our room after checkout so we could wash up my baby who was fussing and crying We were all so grateful for her compassion and understanding I highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again if I’m ever in the area!

William Knowles

The stay part was great Clean room comfortable beds and a very good breakfast Issue was paying

We set it up on our credit card but wanted to pay on our debit So they split it saying our debit was declinedwhich we have plenty of money So now after a long drive home we have to figure this out They said they called this morning before check out but failed to leave a voice-mail Will be back but need better communication The lady that check us in and the lady on later nights were super nice


I stay at a lot of Hamptons They’re all different quality wise As far as this hotel quality wise is concerned, it is fine

No issues, but nothing exceeding expectationsMy air conditioner didn’t work and a part needed to be ordered They had no other available rooms and I had a pretty restless night I’m giving 5 stars because the lovely lady working the desk that night automatically offered to take some money off the total I don’t tend to push for that because I understand things pop up they aren’t expecting, so was pleasantly surprised However, the next day they completely waived my entire stay!! I’ve never had that happened What amazing customer service! Props to the service/management team at this location Really impressed and thank you!

This is the 3rd time I returned to this hotel For the most part I am pleased to see the overall service standard remain with better staffing arrangement to handle the flux of visiting guests I am also very pleased with the housekeeping staff they were very helpful

The food at the restaurant is very good, and love the breakfast offeringThe only bummer I found was the availability of the bike rental given everyone was charged for the destination fee, there needs to be sufficient inventory

Lynnette Williams

Very nice hotel and stay Clean, fresh, great staff and amenities This hotel was located perfectly at the end of Las Olas Blvd near all the restaurants, bars and shops

Only a 5-7 min drive away from the beach It was so convenient staying here Has a nice bar lounge area and restaurant within the hotel Nice size rooms and balcony rooms has a nice view of area The price staying was definitely worth it for me Definitely will be our go-to stay hotel when visiting out here again Really felt luxurious during my birthday festivities Keep up the great work guys!! You are all appreciated!

This hotel has the potential to be a nice hotel However, there are some issues that needs to be rectified During my 2 day stay my room did not have any hot water in the shower

I was told that the water only gets warm but the water didn’t even get warm It is obvious that the pool haven’t been cleaned in a very long time Plus the overall cleanliness of the hotel can be better Even though the rooms are decent and the hotel is in a good location The issues that I address tends to take away from the potential of the hotel

Ab M

Woke up and wanted to take a shower; the water was cold You can imagine how that felt They serve “breakfast”

Came down and it was a few apples, crunch bar and a few pre made ham/sausage burgers No veggie options Pool was not functioning Jacuzzi was dysfunctional Why did I pay that much money for? Would’ve been better off at Marriott or Hilton Staff was nice and respectful, that’s why the two star

Glenn Witherspoon (Spoon)

The cold water pressure varying during the day The faucet usually there no cold water, and the water is to hot to wash your hands The shower water pressure is very weak

Above the shower head, there peeling paint, you can see the green mesh tape The bathroom door get stuck The carpet is sticky, need to be steam cleaned The lobby is really nice, and they have great parking The staff are nice and professional

Albert Garcia

First time staying at this particular hotel I loved it Even though it was 12 miles away from the convention center, I didn’t mind the drive because it is a world better than the hotels right by the convention center

I loved the location Staff was very nice and eager to assist with whatever you needed Exactly what you would expect from a Marriott property I will stay there again and hopefully Plantation Walk will be open Very nice!

Minh Hua

I have stayed over 1,000 nights at a Marriott branded Hotel This Hotel is significantly below average compared to other Sheratons I stayed atLet me first start with a positives

The guy in the club lounge was super curious, responsive and wanted to help Excellent service mire commonly found in Asia or Latin America that the United States The lobby gets lots of natural light and it appears was remodeled not too long ago It’s got your standard breakfast area, a little bar and some conference rooms There’s a fountain outside and there’s plenty of parkingThe reason why I’m getting this two stars is because the rooms are just very old and kind of dirty For example, there is scum in mildew all over the bathroom Another example of the coffee table was scratched up Except for the mattress, it felt more like a old courtyard Marriott than a Sheraton The room is large as you would expect in a suite but again in bad need of updating The drapery seem like it came from the 1990s The shampoo and soap they give you is from big bottles of fixed to the shower wall There’s some hygiene risk there given I’m sure they don’t replace the whole bottle after every guestI have included photos so you can judge for yourselfThe AC unit was loud and didn’t respond to the thermostat very well I think I might have caught a head cold or something after two nights

Maggie Lou

Did a weekend staycation, this hotel is located in the heart of the upcoming area of Plantation Walk For that reason, make sure you get a parking pass because they do ticket cars There is security patrolling the area on a cart

Just a reminder parking isn’t free The staff were really nice and helpful The Sheraton Suites appears to be renovated from the outside and lobby area There are places were upgrades can occur such as the pool and hot tub area The room was nice but it has it quirks like turning the switch down to turn on the light, the noise the sink makes, the struggle opening the closet, and the movement of the refrigerator when you opened it They have a dining area where they serve breakfast, Starbucks, and a small bar Aside for a sign saying they have a breakfast buffet, if you don’t inquire about its most hush-hush There were not many people eating meals when I pass by in the morning or evening If there was a menu available in the room or during check-in, I’m sure they would have more people The hotel was reasonably priced but certain days the price fluctuates tremendously especially weekends and holidays

Far from the madding crowd A great quiet location with everything you could need for a quiet vacation within a 20 minute walk On site breakfast bar has a wide variety of delicious snacks and meals with pleasant attendants

Many local restaurants and bistros within a 10 minute saunter, although it does get crowded at normal feasting times! A wide variety of rooms to suit most peoples tastes, and the in room a/c is adequate for the climate Bathroom supplies were plentiful and housekeeping were always somewhere on hand for top ups or little extras A great little find

Maranda Jean

This is my go to spot for when I’m in town for work and the ladies at the front are so wonderful! Natasha always remembers me greets me with a smile as soon as I walk in I enjoy her conversation and look forward to my stays here because of her! The entire staff is so gracious and kind There is a nice little Starbucks and bar

Rooms are always clean and hotel is maintained extremely well Great work to this staff!

Sheila Jones

There were major problems with noise coming from a party in the hotel’s pool past 11:30 PM at night The hotel allowed 20 or more people to stay in the pool past the stated 11 PM closing time (the pool is in the middle of the hotel property) When a phone call was placed to the front desk at 11:30 PM about excessive noise still coming from a party happening in the pool, the desk attendant explained that the hotel cannot ask guests to leave the pool area even though it was time for it to close for the evening based on the hotel’s own rules

This was an absurd answer for a Marriott employee to give to a guest I’m all for people having a good time but what about the rest of the guests going to sleep? Hotels have rules for a reason This is second time we have used this hotel and won’t use it again

I just visited here for my boyfriends birthday I only stayed 1 night but I have no complaints on my visit My room was very clean

The weather was at 40 degrees, got a delicious hot chocolate from the bistro I forgot tooth paste and asked the front desk for some and to my surprise they actually had it They were extremely friendly and polite They only reason didn’t give it 5 stars is because the rooms have no microwaves

Sharon Miller

Mattress was extremely soft and needed a chiropractor after my stay No one should be asked to sleep on a mattress with absolutely no support whatsoever Pillows had absolutely no support whatsoever

Bathroom has no fan Room was not cleaned We were ignored Front desk has an attitude key card works when it wants to Hotel needs a makeover

Patrick Vial

Perfect location Close to the beach but not right on A1A where it’s hard to find hotels with parking Hotel has plenty of free parking

There’s a Denny’s right across the street and the hotel has their own Deli Shop I didn’t use the pool but it looked cozy and comfortable with plenty of sun The hotel was spotless Crew was always keeping it clean I like the balconies in the rooms overlooking the pool Very cozy tropical style

My room was not cleaned, the carpet not vacuum I found broken glasses on the carpet in the room Back of the toilet seat had poop stains

I asked to changed the linen All they did was putting them in the room for me to changed myself The crazy thing is when I go to the front desk and asked if they could clean my room vacuum and cleaned the toilet It seem the front desk right away see me as someone making life difficult Even though I took pictures of the stains and glasses on the floor It seem no one checked if what I was saying was even true I spent two weeks at that place and it was not clean I had to be the one asking for new blanket and i did my bed Toilet was filthy and smell like someone was smoking cannabis in it I actually took pictures of the room if anyone want to see or think I am just complaining Trust me I’m nice in my review the customer service was the worst I have ever had in any hotel I ever been I met only one lady that seems to care at the front desk after I showed her picture of the room She was nice and stated she was the front desk manager But even though she assured me the room would be cleaned By the time I came back at night the room was not done or vacuum However the day after the toilet stains was finally wiped away That was before my last day staying at the hotel I would not suggest for anyone to stay at this place However I did feel it was a safe place to stay

The Good: The staff was very courteous, offered free bottled water, and the room was clean/spacious, especially at the given price point The fact that they also offer a free parking garage for guests to use is a huge bonus The bed was also very comfortable, with nice (useful) pillows

The not so good: I deducted 1 star because the rooms are in desperate need of a professional remodel The current state of the rooms just looks like 30-40 years of quick remodel jobs (thick, caked on paint, old wall plates for light switches and outlets, extremely loose wall outlets, etc) If you’re staying here for a night or two, you’re totally fine Anything more is your call

Fast, friendly arrival/check in experience I was checked in by someone who appeared to be relatively new and learning, and he did a great job! He was being actively mentored/supervised by an experienced associate and they did a great job Did it take longer to check in? Well, based on my experience as a frequent traveler, I would say, yes it did probably take 30-45 seconds longer

I’ve experienced this before and I never mind seeing someone learning especially when they appear to want to learn Both the trainee and the trainer seemed to have a very customer-centric attitude and dispositionThe ladies working in the “Bonvoy Lounge” (I think that’s what its called) were awesome! So friendly and welcoming Their hospitality was great and it was obviously very realFitness center could be cleaned up a little (and restock the cleaning wipes for wiping down equipment) but it was nicely equipped and I am grateful for it

Very nice hotel, close to many nice eating places Rooms are nice and cleaned well They will only come in and do a lite clean up and make beds after your 3rd night

Trash can is to be put outside your door to be emptied by 2pm It’s ok,but a little pricey per night We stayed 2 nights for $336 plus $100 deposit you get back Nice breakfast in morning I guess I just expected a little more for less

Christine Detres

Super clean rooms! Complementary breakfast was off the chain the most sweetest ,nicest staff I’ve ever come across from the cleaning crew to the kitchen staff Breakfast was so delicious and so much varieties to choose and pick from Egg, sausages bacon ,French toast, oatmeal ,bagels, toast, muffins, cereals ,orange juice, apple juice, milk ,coffee just delicious

I highly recommend for anyone that’s needs a place to stay check out Hyatt PlaceI will definitely be coming back here and the best part of this resort they accept service dogs with no questions asked and no one bothers you I give it 10⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This is an excellent Inn, I don’t know where to begin Extremely clean, quiet, perfect location for everything Wilton Manors has to offer So many bars and clubs within 2 blocks! Mike is an extremely gracious host

New to the area, he took extra time to orient me to the area and offer recommendations He personally walked me to the room to assure all was in order The pool area is private and very clean The room is well appointed Oversized shower, large bath area, and a small but efficient kitchenette area The bed was SO comfortable with lots of pillows The other owner, Jim, is just as warm and caring So wonderful you may not want to leave the property!

Rick Taft

Really enjoyed our stay at Island Sands Inn Mike was so helpful getting us oriented and recommending restaurants and nightspots And there are many of both within walking distance!We chose a small room for the two of us

It was comfortable, clean and had plenty of room for us and our stuffWe had breakfast every day delivered to us by the pool The water was warm and inviting and the complimentary sunscreen was a nice touchIf we’re ever in Fort Lauderdale again, I’m sure this is the place we’ll stay

Jordana Bailey

This is the ONLY place to stay when in Wilton Manors! Villas are modern, extremely clean, well decorated, spacious & who can beat the salt water pools! The location is absolutely PERFECT for all the hot spots Mike & Jim were absolutely the best! Their warmth, friendliness, attention to clients needs, extreme professionalism & always being available for assistance 24/7 was priceless Mike told us all the best places to go & he was right! Had an OUTSTANDING experience & will ONLY stay here when I return

Thank you for making our vacation awesome!

This was a great hotel stay! We really enjoyed the beautiful 2 Queen suite which was very spacious It had huge TVs which was great for watching the NFL playoff games We enjoyed the rooftop bar and pool area, as we were here to celebrate a birthday

The front desk team were very accommodating especially Allen and Terrell Although we did not use valet service, the valet team very polite and engaging in conversation especially Rowan We’ll definitely be back!!

Sherray Utley

The whole experience was terrible I checked out early and was unable to even complete my stay there because the experience was just that horrible The hotel staff were not hospitable and not what I am accustomed to experiencing from the Marriott brand

The room smelled bad Our concerns about the smell were not adequately addressed The first night they stated they could only clean the room but they were unable to move us to a comparable room since they were at capacity for the night The next day the hotel staff said that they would need to do an assessment of the room before moving Ridiculous! They then say they still are unable to move us and offered to clean the room again, which I was not interested in then having to stay in the same room where they are spraying with tons of cleaning products, also while our luggage is still in the room The manager followed up later on that day Finally, the manager told us that they would move us to another room on the same floor The manager stated she would leave a note with the front desk staff However, the communication between the managers and the front staff was horrible Once we were packed and were ready to move to the different room the front desk staff acted as if they had no idea what we were referring to They said they had no comparable rooms available I asked to speak with the manager and they advised they already left for the night Eventually, they “magically” found us a comparable room, but it wasn’t on the same floor as they promised Actually, the new room was now on the lower third level close to the highway, where we can hear the highway traffic all night long I imagine this wouldn’t have been an issue if the hotel had double pane windows The next morning we speak to the manager of the hotel and he is condescending, ignores our concern, and makes tons of excuses instead of apologizing for the many inconveniences we experienced during our stay After that encounter, I checked out early I moved to a full service Marriott hotel in the area And the experience was night and day I received much better treatment after moving to another hotel This Courtyard location needs to ensure they are adequately cleaning their rooms, especially if they are a pet friendly hotel But most of all, they need to learn to treat their customers with respect As a Marriott Gold elite member I’ve never experienced this type of treatment and horrible customer service I would never recommend staying at this hotel

Eric Gotham

This has been a pleasant surprise  For the price, I was expecting something a little more aged but it looks brand new   Even though its new,  the staff really knows what they’re doing – all very pleasant, busy, kind, etc

  Rooms are clean and spacious with large windows and televisions  Modern lighting controls and plenty of charging ports The lobby is contemporary, yet inviting It has a convenient little “store” for snacks and drinks  The restaurant, coffee shop and bar on the lobby level are OK – kinda the only thing that’s missed the mark Dinner is far better than breakfast The food portions are small and quality is so so (it’s a hotel, I get it) The real bummer is they say it’s not part of the hotel, so you cannot charge your room for meals or drinks  Same with the roof top bar

A beautiful hotel, decked out in marble and blues located in one half of The Delmar Being a Marriott branded hotel, it comes equipped with the usual closets and full bath, the beds are VERY comfortable, and the kitchenette made Valentine’s day a breeze The best part was the full, floor to ceiling window on one side overlooking the pool and beyond

Room service and concierge were remarkably nice, and my baby and I have never been happier! Honestly I’ve never stayed at a better hotel, I loved it!

Stephen Knefely

First night we stayed in the Del Mar! Great experience since we booked a premium suitWent to check into the “other” hotel- the element which literally uses the same lobbyWe pre checked in, after waiting 15 minutes since the lobby has no formal check in process

We all stand in a glob in the center of the room, and walk to a desk when available When they alerted us that our room was available, we were next to the desk- and they decided to quickly check in the pilots that just walked in behind usWe get to our room, which is generally reserved for the handicapped No big dealLooking at the shower fixture, it’s not accessible for someone of normal heightWe call to speak with a front desk attendant, and express our concerns and are told to sit down and utilize the shower, and also no other rooms are available She stated she wasn’t aware of what the room looked like, invited her to see it – in which a male supervisor picked up rudely , and stated there is nothing they can doOur money was great when we booked through the Del Mar, but nothing when we utilized Expedia for the “element”

Lavender Inspiration

Very good downtown hotel with convenience to Las Olas, Riverwalk, Brightline, Science Museum etc This is NOT a beach hotel for those looking for that (I was not) The room was comfortable, clean, and well-equipped but tiny (and I supposedly had an upgraded, larger room)

There are no great views Oddly, the TV was not visible from the bed, and the balcony was uninviting The bed was miserably hard The common areas are nice Keep in mind I was there off-season so it wasn’t crowded Staff that I interacted with were pleasant

Beautiful hotel!Exceptional breakfastHere is why I gave one star…Very poor customer service and communication in regards to housekeeping protocols

My husband and I stated the concerns to the front desk and there was no accomdation to our check out besides an apologyThe temperature in the room was not set to what was requested during bookingHousekeeping protocols were not communicated verbally or in an email during bookingWe were not made aware about a 24 hour request for housekeeping They presented us with a paper at check out… which in my opinion should be emailed or posted in the ACTUAL ROOM I have been to several other hotels during the pandemic and they have it posted in the room or communicated it to us during check in I think this is something that should be on the door or they have some type of communication to the guests to request the cleaning No where in this hotel room did I see a posting I did see a sign in the bathroom that if you left your towels on the floor they would be replace… so I assumed that housekeeping was a regular routine in this placeHow can someone place a request for a 24 hour housekeeping the room when we didn’t even check in 24 hours within when the clean up was needed????I was in town came to this hotel for a surgery I was having and returned to a hotel room that was not cleaned When I called the front desk there was music from the lounge blasting and the employee could barely hear me All she did was send two towelsI needed to be in a clean environment and my health was at riskUnfortunately I will not be recommending this place to my family and friends I am highly unsatisfied I did not get my moneys worth


Modern contemporary design in rooms and lobby areas Clean and new Great service

Perfect location for staying and shopping at the Sawgrass Mills mall It’s actually located in the parking lot of the mall, so parking is available and free Valet parking is available tooThe surrounding areas are well litThe furniture is clean and comfortable and the design is modern with clean lines and no clutter Large spacious bathrooms and a shower stall with sufficient elbow roomThere’s water and coffee available in the rooms; a snack shop and a bar in the lobby and a good buffet breakfast is available at minimal cost The restaurant seating area is spacious and clean and well attendedOf course, the many restaurants both inside and on the outside of the mall area are all available for you to enjoy dinnerNear to the hotel is a lovely outdoor walk area alongside the shops for enjoying an after dinner walk in a beautiful settingI would definitely stay here againA bit pricey but still affordable

Chris Dodorico

Gorgeous new modern property at Sawgrass Mills The design is sleek with beautiful finishes Check-in was very swift and polite

Room is nicely appointed The thermostat is a bit challenging – the room was 81 when we arrived but finally figured how to put it on Called maintenance and a very friendly gentleman arrived immediately to help Problem is the thermostat turns back off overnight so the room warmed again Rooftop bar is great with nice views and fun, calm vibe Overall construction is kinda cheap and you can hear a lot of noises on the floor Will definitely stay again!

We have been here for three days so far and leaving tomorrow We have enjoyed staying here immensely Our room was so clean and we let housekeeping clean it each day

I like the fact you smell bleach in the bathroom It lets you know they actually clean it The staff here are always happy to help you except the maids They really aren’t socialable but that wasn’t anything to complain about The breakfast is very nice and very cleangood food as well This place went above and beyond my expectations We were in room 403

Savannah Sussman

I can’t give this hotel 5 stars for 2 reasons1) The water pressure in the showers 🚿 is far to weak2) There is no microwave in the rooms

I stay in same hotels, for weeks at a time, and a microwave is a definite plusThe staff in this hotel is EXEMPLARY!From the front desk to housekeeping to the person arranging 🥞 the breakfast 🥐 buffet, everyone is friendly, efficient and pleasantI’d rather drive the 30 miles to my location, than stay in a closer hotel😌

Leader1- LARRIO A. WALDEN (Captain)

Nice Friendly staff, clean room, good breakfast buffet

all you can eat But your car will get very dusty from all the construction going on next door And tree leafs falling on the windshield Otherwise, I like this property, will stay again and I do recommend this Holiday Inn Express & Suites However, they must stay steadfast, continuously striding in all categories to earn 5 Stars hotelNow, Breakfast dinning I rate 5 🌟 for cleanliness, food quality and quantity, temperature of the food and the good helpful attendant on duty therewho’s name is Trevor Very helpful and clean man

My boyfriend and I had the most amazing stay here The hotel is charming, with gorgeous decor and a warm atmosphere The location could not be beaten

I think it was worth spending a bit more to be on Los Olas Blvd and be able to walk to all the fun restaurants and shops And the pool! I loved the pool It was along the canal and was very peaceful and beautiful

Marcia Coda

Beautiful hotel right on Las Olas Blvd where there are loads of shops and restaurants Rooms are nice

Beautiful interior Location is great Across the street is the Boathouse restaurant (owned by the hotel) where you can sit by the river watching a continuous flow of boats Employees are friendly and helpful We would definitely return Can’t say enough good things


We want to express our gratitude and appreciation for the extraordinary service we received in our December stay at the Riverside hotel DENISE, the hotel manager was overly accommodating and efficient LORI, at the front desk made us feel welcome the entire stay

We felt the hospitality from start to finish Five stars aren’t enough to rate our overall experience!
