The Pillars because we knew about its high Conde Nast ranking. Although we had eaten at their Secret Garden dining venue on many occasions we had never stayed in the hotel itself. We arrived in the early afternoon and were greeted with a choice of welcome drinks which ranged from classic bubbly to just plain old water. Once unpacked we... More

Our recent visit to the Pillars Hotel was as perfect as we have come to expect, after visiting this peaceful oasis severeal times over the years. We enjoy the beautiful ambience tucked away behind the busy main road and find the staff at the hotel very accommodating, helpful and friendly. The rooms are always extremely clean which is a big...

This is a lovely small hotel, great staff, and a good location to enjoy Lauderdale but it has a serious flaw. The hotel allows smoking on the grounds which can be very annoying if you want to enjoy seating outside. We wanted to have dinner outside our room but the people next to us were smoking like a chimney and... More

We booked The Pillars last-minute through Travelocity and could not have been happier with our choice. We were immediately welcomed with a drink and walked down to the intracoastal to check out the view. It was amazing. The pool was just the right size with a good number of chairs and loungers. We ended up walking around Fort Lauderdale while... More

Escaped the latest snowstorm up North to a warm ( in many ways) welcome at The Pillars. A lovely oasis secluded from the HighRises in Lauderdale. Every newcomer, including ourselves, heads immediately to the beautiful views of the Inter-coastal. It was hard to leave our Plantation Suite which was strikingly decorated and anticipated every comfort. Each member of the Staff... More

We were met at check in by two employees that could care if we were there. They were not rude they just made you feel... Not sure how to explain it just no smiles, no warmth. We asked to have dinner and were told they were booked so we opted to sit in the pool area and had drinks. All... More

PillarsManagement, Operations Manager at The Pillars Hotel Fort Lauderdale, responded to this review

We are sorry you had a bad experience, and certainly appreciate the feedback. From what our staff reported, you were unhappy with the room due to its location. However, it should be explained that you booked last minute, when we had one room remaining. For obvious reasons, this room may not be in the best location. All rooms are decorated... More

This charming boutique hotel is 2 blocks from the beach and "miles" away from the Ft. Lauderdale scene. The service is top notch. From the minute we entered we were greeted in a warm and friendly manner.

Our family of four (two children aged 7 and 10) stayed in the Pillars in February. We booked a two room suite and the children slept in the sofabed. It is enough for smaller children.
