As usual, we flew down a day early before our cruise last month. You really can’t chance a same day flight when you’re flying from Michigan! My parents and us were booked for a night stay at the Hilton Beach Resort in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, and we were very impressed the second we arrived. The hotel is on the main strip and within walking distance of so many bars and shops, but far enough away from the craziness that you can relax.
Since it was our first time there we received an upgrade to a king ocean view room, 22 floors up! The view was breathtaking and even though we only had a little less than 24 hours there, we spent most of the time sitting there enjoying the view.
The room had a king size bed, small kitchen area, TONS of closet space, and a huge bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a waterfall shower. I was especially excited about the shower- waterfall is the way to go.
I didn’t take any pictures of the pool area because we really didn’t have time to use it. We did eat lunch and breakfast at the hotel restaurant which was delightful. The creme brulee oatmeal was out of this world. I also would recommend the Mojitos… I may have indulged a bit! (excuse my husbands fingers in front of his breakfast)
My husband and I will most definitely stay at this hotel again next time we return to Fort Lauderdale. We had an excellent time and everyone goes above and beyond to make you feel welcomed.
