Il Lugano Hotel Fort Lauderdale features sprouting orchids, layered lighting and a chic black bar area. Expansive windows look out onto sparkling seascapes below, where the hotel's private yacht docks on the Intracoastal Waterway. 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.

Neighborhood
The hotel rests in Fort Lauderdale's premium Isles neighborhood, where the canals of the Intracoastal waterway lead to beautiful waterside residences. Water taxis can deliver you from Il Lugano Suite Hotel north to the all-American restaurants of Commercial Street, or right down to Las Olas Boulevard, where you will find year-round events from art festivals to food and wine fairs. The area is also a golfer's utopia, with the huge greens at Coral Ridge Country Club across the water.

This is a really nice boutique hotel. The room was great and equipped with a kitchenette. The staff at the front desk were super friendly! We will definitely stay here again.

There is an option for street parking, however, you need to feed the meter until midnight and again at 8:00 am. The valet is very nice but pricey at $27/night.

ft lauderdale gem

Can be difficult to find with rental car gps systems, but one you arrive you're greeted by an attentive staff. The view of the intercoastal is fantastic!, Quiet hallways with lots of privacy and immediate attention when you ask. Was offered an upgrade when we checked in ---that's what traveling in august can get you!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

It's not on the beach but is a two block walk. They also have a car to take u back n forth to the beach if available. To actually see a bit of the ocean, u have to be in the ocean view rooms and it has to be at least on the 7th floor or above.

Fantastic getaway for two

Traveling to Florida for the first time, this was the perfect hotel for me and my significant other. From check in to check out everything was flawless. There was very little traffic in the hotel which was perfect, leading to a peaceful and quiet stay of five nights. The hotel itself is not in a high traffic area either, but in perfect walking distance to several small stores, restaurants, and the beach. We originally booked the "studio suite", which was fantastic in its own, but were upgraded to the "intercostal" room at no extra charge upon arrival. Having larger space and the balcony spanned from the living room to bedroom. The room was very spacious and lovely. Having the kitchenette was a great plus, while having a longer stay. The pool area was awesome as well, just the right size and comfy chairs to lounge in. The hot tub was a plus too! We enjoyed the hotel so much, that we didn't mind leaving our room! Be sure to check out the restaurant as well, fantastic food! Our stay at the Lugano was perfect and just as we expected it to be! Making it a very memorable vacation!

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Be sure to check out the Water Taxi, its last stop is at the Lugano. There are 13 stops total and your ticket is good for all day, it is $22 a person. Which if you plan on wanting to site see, is a great deal!

Solid suite

My wife and 10-month-old stayed at Il Lugano for 6 days. Chose it because we had a very good experience once before, and they held up their end once again. Got upgraded to a larger room (a suite this time). Having a kitchen and laundry in room is key when you have an infant. Self-parked across the street at meter, paid using my phone, cheap and convenient. It's a 10-min walk to the beach. They can give you a ride if you like. Pool is OK, it;s small and on the side of the building, not the main attraction here, but works. Place is well kept, staff are reasonably attentive. Free wifi is a plus. If I had to nit-pick... Why are the lobby doors so darn heavy? An why not automatic? It's just odd to try and open them with a suitcase or stroller in the other hand. Not a big deal. Would definitely go back.

Park at the meters across the street, download the app to pay from anywhere. It sends reminder texts when your time is almost up. Very convenient and super cheap.
