Stayed here for a short business trip. Rooms were immaculate. Service exceptional. The front desk staff was super kind and helpful. Valet-terrific. Jen was a great, friendly bartender as was the rest of the staff. So nice. Make sure you order the mozzarella and pesto. Tremendous! Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Dear JoninSTL, We as a team are so proud of how you experienced our property, just as it really is. We strive for perfection, but to hear those words from a guest, makes it all worth it at the end of a day! Please come back and have some more of that mozzarella very soon!!!

Il Lugano is an absolutely beautiful hotel in an excellent location on the Intercostal Waterway, close to the beach. I enjoyed laying out on their cushioned loungers by the canal more than the beach but that is obviously personal taste. It is an extremely relaxing environment with tons of space in the suites. Although we were only there for one...

Very nice and quiet place, excellent location if you have a car. The service is outstanding. The kitchen did not have really enough stuff to cook but was good enough. Great intracoastal views. Very good quality/price rapport. Will visit back.

Even though this hotel wasn't on the beach, Il Lugano is a hidden jewel. Since I do not enjoy renting cars on vacation, Il Lugano is located on the Gault Mile.
