Il Lugano Hotel Fort Lauderdale features sprouting orchids, layered lighting and a chic black bar area.

There are Cadillac Esplanades ready to take you anywhere within a three-mile radius, and the Italian homemade pastas at Da Campo Osteria bring a taste of the Mediterranean to Florida - chefs are even willing to demonstrate their mozzarella-pulling techniques so you can take a little of their expertise home with you.

fantastic getaway!

Great Hotel!Very nice restrnt,cozy lounge,small pool.Rooms where excellent! I wanted 2 eat n sleep.I got plenty,in a quiet suite overlooking the water. It's not really a beach Hotel.The beach was about 4 blocks away. Did'nt like that as a guest you have to pay for parking over night,20 bucks! You can park in front of the Hotel,but U gotta move or feed the meter by 8am. All that said,I would only stay there if I go back to Ft.Laud. Big! Big! Up to Louis U ARE THE MAN!

Good Hotel

This was my first experience at this hotel. The hotel has a great design. The suites are very comfortable: nice bathroom, two TVs, complete kitchen, fridge, even washing machine and dryer in the room. I paid extra to get an Ocean view. Little did I know that the Ocean is actually 3 blocks away, so you can actually see the Ocean, but there are 4 buildings in the middle. There is a small nice balcony. The other side of the buildings look to the canals. It's nice to lay in the cabannas and watch the sunset. The swimming pool doesn't get any sun throughout the day (at least in December). There's a small hot tub. If you want to sun tan your best bet are the cabannas or go to the beach (See helful hint below). As far as restaurants, there is a good one at the hotel. Otherwise, nothing worth pointing out in the area. For Entertainment, I didn't find anything to point out in the area.

Direct access to the beach. You can go there and be by the ocean and have access to the hotel's bar. At this location you can rent jetskis.

Nice Hotel

The hotel was super nice and the staff very friendly. The location is great as well. Don't count on using the pool though, it is small and the water temparature not kept at a comfortable level. Better off going to the beach as we did. It is within walking distance, about 3 or 4 blocks. We parked the car closer to the beach though, lucky to find a spot in the small lot close by. If you are looking to get away from the noise, I highly recommend it.

nice trip

The room is spacious. It's got a mini kitchen. Staff are nice. Overall experience is good. There is wifi in the room, but can never get connected. I don't know why parking has to be valet parking. $20/ day is too much.

Excellent Hotel

Very nice hotel right on the inter-coastal waterway. Great views of the yachts passing by. The room was very large with a full kitchen, living room area and bedroom area with a large balcony.

Beautiful hotel, wonderful amenities

Expensive, but worth it. The suite was large and well-appointed. The huge balcony was absolutely wonderful with a gorgeous view of the intercoastal waterway. The only problem was the ceiling fan light in the bedroom. The light turned on by itself several times during the night in our room and in our friends' room 4 floors directly above us. The hotel is aware of the problem,(evidentally a problem with the fan/light remote) but hasn't had it fixed.
