This was our 9th stay at our "home away from home" and for the first time stayed in a Grand One Bedroom Suite, room 610. The Suite provided a small, but full kitchen (no island), 4 person dining room table, spacious living room with sofa bed and side chair, full washer and dryer, spacious king bedroom with desk, and a very large bathroom with private toilet. The Suite provided a quiet, relaxing retreat for our family of three. It was truly wonderful! I encourage other guests to book this room...just look at the pictures attached to this review to see why!
While the layout was very different from the traditional one bedroom we normally stay in, the star of the suite is the MASSIVE terrace; it could have easily accommodated 30 people! The terrace overlooked the pool looking down, the intracoastal waterway to the left and the ocean to the right. While the terrace is not completely private (it is separated by a short glass wall with the adjoining room), we did not experience any noise issues from neighboring guests. The terrace offered a sun lounger, table & four chairs, a bench & table, and two side chairs. It was a wonderful place to stretch out and read, relax, and take a nap, and also a pleasant space to enjoy dinner in the evenings. And the view was so beautiful, especially as the sun was setting each evening.
We stayed a full week and had a wonderful, relaxing experience. David Fernandez, General Manager and his team are fabulous at taking care of their guests and this stay was no exception. We always look forward to our time at the Residence Inn Fort Lauderdale/Il Lugano and can't wait for our next stay! We hope to stay in a Grand One Bedroom Suite on our next visit :)
