The Pillars is a wonderful place to stay in Ft. Lauderdale. The location can't be beat. It is located on the intracoastal waterway near Beach Place. It is walking distance to many restaurants, shops, and just one block to the beach. There is free convenient parking right next to the hotel. The water taxi stops right at the hotel. It is a quiet alternative to the large hotels. Feels more like home.
The hotel is very elegant in style and decor. It is small, quaint, and classy. It is two stories with an elegant porch along the second floor. There are tables and chairs with a candle that is lit every evening outside the rooms. There is a library, living room type lounge, and a fabulous pool/courtyard area. The chaise lounge chairs at the pool have thick cushions, towels and terry cloth cushion covers are on each chair. The pool area is very lush and garden-like. There is complementary ice water and iced tea provided in the pool area. There are tables with cushioned wicker seats for dining along the intracoastal waterway.
I stayed in a queen deluxe room on the second floor. It was small, but I knew by the description on the website that it was going to be. There was a queen bed, an LCD TV, table with two chairs and a small bath. The bath looked newly renovated. The room was elegant and well decorated. Free WIFI internet service is provided.
The food is very good. I had breakfast, luch and dinner during my stay and each was very good. Pricey, but to be expected at this class of hotel. There is complementary champaigne with dinner, and turn down service includes chocolates.
Professional and attentive staff. Will help with anything. We will return!
