I stayed here in May for a week and enjoyed my visit. The location is fantastic as it is within walking distance from Galleria Mall with its shops and restaurants and just five minutes walk to the beach, I hardly used my rental car. There is Publix and a CVS across the road, and as the Hotel is right on the river, you can watch the yachts go by from the heated pool. There is also a water taxi service, which was fantastic for visiting the Boat Show, as the trip there was a boat show in itself. The valet service has vastly improved and now you can call from your suite, a few minutes in advance, and your car is waiting at the Hotel door for you. Now that?s service ! The restaurant is good value for money and the inside and outside bars were both well stocked. I ate at the bar one evening at 10.30 pm and it was was an enjoyable meal. The staff were friendly before, but they are even friendlier now and always very courteous. It is was like coming home. I had a spacious two bedroom suite with a living room, that was well appointed and spotlessly clean, with three big flat screen TV?s. Gallery One has all of the services of a good Hotel with suite accommodation. In comparison it makes staying in a normal Hotel room rather cramped and I am now converted to only booking suites in the future. In my opinion this Hotel represents excellent value for money it has the best location in Ft. Lauderdale. Well done to all at Gallery One.
