If you want to stay near the beach, with rooms spacious enough to call home, the Ocean Sky Hotel Fort Lauderdale fills the bill. The scent of polished wood, tiki canopies and palm trees hangs in the air, and when dusk settles, the hotel lights up in aqua hues, preparing guests for a night of marine-side dancing, or a secluded dip in the outdoor Jacuzzi. Dine in American-Continental style on the sunny brick terrace, or take a long swig of your cocktail before the ocean waves in the tiki bar. Rent out jet skis or scuba equipment nearby for a little extra action on the waves, or retreat to the games room indoors when the air gets cooler.

Neighborhood
This North Ocean Boulevard hotel is flanked by the beach and the Intercoastal Waterway, with the small neighborhood of Lauderdale-by-the-sea to the north and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood Airport (FLL) to the south (12 miles). The Galleria Shopping Mall provides contemporary entertainment amongst the bargain rails, or visitors can take a trip back in time to the stately Bonnet House and Gardens (both under three miles away). Head out into the sea with a dinner-cruise aboard the Jungle Queen to capture the whole of the shoreline with your senses, as well as your camera.
Hints and tips
The hotel's north-facing rooms give shy travelers the quietest stay, while view-seekers will adore the 9th floor.Check out the selection of Mediterranean-inspired restaurants on the fishing pier, or head toward the city center along Commercial Street for favorite grills like Flanigans.

great place

true the room could use a bit more love, but who goes to FL to stay in doors. the proximity to the beach and pool was awesome. The staff was super friendly. We took our 7th month baby and she loved it... we are still waiting for the pack & play we requested when we made reservations, we asked twice and no one deliver it to the room. that would be my only complaint

Very nice beachside getaway

The area of the hotel was very nice and more secluded. Friendly environment. The location was awesome and right on the beach with a side balcony to view the ocean. Lobby area was very nice and presentable looking. Nice sun-bathing area in the back with pool and hot-tub. Rooms were nice and clean & maintained daily.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Las Olas Blvd. - short drive, shopping & dining areas, marina & bayside area to take boat tours of luxurious mansions & cruise line areas. Aruba- restuarant, good food, dancing, bar, etc. short drive or about 15 minute walk down the street. Beside the beach. Nice block area with other nice resturants, VERY good seafood & wine resturant right beside Aruba. Souvenir & chocolate & yogurt shops, etc.

Gotcha

Far cry from the on line info. Get ready to be charged extra for everything from daily parking to beach lounge even to sit next to pool is 20$ per chair. Front desk people are rude and unhelpful. Rooms are out of date and tiny bathrooms. Food is pricey and only fair. Would never return or recommend this hotel. Ruined vacation because of poor hotel.

Average but expected

Great location (on beach). Very nice staff. Avg. room. Bad internet connection. Bad tv. Food is ok but $$$. Very near restaurants and "normal life" used stores. With little improvement could be 4 stars but it's a 3 star. Would recommend but don't expect a wow factor. It's ok.

Birthday weekend

This was our second stay at the Ocean Sky. We stayed 5 years ago and they have updated the rooms since then. We love it there because the pool is steps away from the ocean. You get the best of both all wrapped up into one. Plenty of good places to eat that you can walk to. If you are going there to relax, it's a good spot. The rooms are average....they were clean and comfortable. I feel it was a good value. We will be back again.

Thai Spice restaurant is a must. This restaurant is one of the top ten rated places to dine in Florida. It was amazing and the service was outstanding.

Great beach relax

The Ocean Sky is right on a beautiful beach, and it also has a sparkling swimming pool and a big Jacuzzi on a large patio furnished with beach recliners. Complimentary beach towels are provided. The hotel and the beach are uncrowded during the summer season. The hotel was clean, and the staff was friendly and efficient. The free wifi worked fine, and there were a coffee maker with coffee, an iron with ironing board and a hair dryer in the room. Our standard room had a balcony with a diagonal view of the beach. Parking costs $12 a night. There's an attendant watching the lot all night. A supermarket, a drug store and a few restaurants are within walking distance. We didn't try the hotel restaurant. All in all, a very pleasant experience.
