Rated 2 out of 5 by Selah8 Can't say anything nice
Oh no! This Hotel is horrible! I thought it was going to be an okay stay since it was rated decently, however I was quite disappointed.
The carpet down the hallways needs to be replaced! And the air conditioning smells old and moldy when you turn it on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AngL2014 Attention Mr. Dennis Fischer. Complaint about front desk staff member
Our three families booked 5 suites for 4 nights at your hotel as our mother had died and we live out of state. Overall experience was good except for Lyzelte at the front desk who was rude and argumentative both on the phone prior to the stay and during check in. She was also observed being nasty to your other guests checking in. Impression I got is that this woman has a terrible attitude and needs to be sent to an area where she does not deal with guests directly. Why do you tolerate such conduct and in a position so critical to the success of a guest's stay? Lyzelte could use more customer service training AND a demotion. If she continues to be non-compliant for goodness sake fire her. The other front desk people including Sonny and Marie J. from Jamaica were very helpful. I am so sorry that I have forgotten the names of the other staff with whom I interacted as I would like to give them kudos by name. If the Sheraton is unionized then not only do you have cause from verbal complaints but you have documented proof from guests like myself that Lyzelte is not performing her duties. Get rid of her I say. EDIT TO SHORTEN ONLY!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Caro0015 Lack of staffing
This hotel has a good location and because the rooms are all suites it should be much better than it is but I have to caution you if you stay here that the hotel is not run by Sheraton but is under license to use the Sheraton name.
That means that the Club Level has no lounge and the breakfast is provided in the main restaurant which has only one waitress working so very slow service.
The rooms themselves are very well worn with torn upholstery, worn carpets and scuffed walls.
If you require any assistance during your stay you will need to go down to the desk to speak to the staff as they will not answer the phone if you try to reach them from your room.

I had the wonderful experience to stay at this beautiful facility. The rooms are magnificent, the location is optimal and the restaurant terrific. Unfortunately, my friend and I had a medical issue and he experienced a heart attack while we were staying there. Carlisle at the front desk was the person who was kind enough to assist the paramedics and us with getting out of the hotel and to the hospital quickly. The entire staff inquired about my friend each time I went through the lobby and were so kind and caring, it was really touching and so nice to know that people like that still exist. A true asset to your facility.

We were in town for the weekend of Hurricane Sandy. The staff was awesome with their unwavered service. The rooms were warm when we checked-in. The weekend turned out very wonderful for our entire family even though the winds were whipping outside. We will always stay at this Sheraton when we come to Ft. Lauderdale. Thank you

The hotel is centrally located to areas I needed to visit. The room layout was unique and nice. Front desk check in person was very friendly and called up as soon as we got to the room to make sure all was ok. Nice to have separate living area and tv in each room.
The room is a little tired though. Bathroom has some cracks here and there in bathtub and ceiling, couch had stains and was worn, and worse was the windows because they looked cloudy and between the double walled windows growing around the edges was some sort...mold, crystals, or something.
After 11pm the first night, the hotel called my room to ask if I could check the drawers because the previous guest left some medication. They then called in the morning at 9am to ask again because the guest left "herbal medicine" in a drawer.
This is unacceptable. They should have called housekeeping, not me...and should have been mindful of the times they were calling. Not very professional. I had to go to the front desk and tell them not to repeat this the next night if the previous guest calls them again.

My wife and I came here for a quite short vacation with two of our teenage grandchildren. The living room was great for the kids and we had the master bedroom. The staff was helpful and we really enjoyed the rooftop pool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by lakefront Unsatisfactory
1st room given to me was beside the roof and giant a/c unit, there is no way you could get a good nights sleep with that drone.
2nd room, flushed the toilet once, second time did not work ask the front desk to look after it while I went out to the theatre. Came back at 11:30 p.m. that night, again flushed once, tried the next time, same problem. The toilet did not work the rest of the night. Explained details to front desk when I checked out, not really interested and was charged a full room rate for a room that was not operable. Unfortunately, the Sheraton Brand will not be used by myself in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Vincos Only just adequate
This hotel is listed as a Category 3 and, using that criteria,as a facility it does deliver but, nevertheless I found my stay to be less than totally satisfying. We arrived by car with loads of luggage and - although there was a podium - I never saw a single porter the whole time we were there. I ended up having to lug 6 bags myself. At the Reception Desk, same story. No one around! i could hear laughing and talking in the back but only when I shouted did someone actually come out. This person noted my SPG status as Gold. When I informed him that I was actually Platinum, he contested this and seemed reluctant to make further verification. It didn't really matter as there was no upgrade and when he presented me with the key, he said "sorry for the terrible view.!" He was right - interior courtyard (although the fountain was beautifully lit at night).
Internet service was very spotty and no wifi in the room is outrageous.
Guest services often did not answer the phone and when I actually made a request (replacement coffee), I had to call twice and wait 30 minutes. In fairness, the manager did a follow-up call and was very apologetic.
The swimming pool on the roof was unattractive and looked forlorn with scrappy plants and old furniture.
The breakfast buffet was very nice and service was quite pleasant.
The hotel is part of some complex but all the other buildings around it seem to be closed down making for a kind of eerie feeling.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Yinel Not as CLEAN as it Looks!!!!!!
When I first saw the hotel I though it looked really nice and fancy. I got to my room and it looked ok. But as my kids started to play around, I notice my two year old had a lot of white fur in his shirt. I took a closer look and it was dog hair. I started then to look around the room. The sofa was full of dog hairs everywhere. I found a chewed dog bone under the bathroom sink. The carpet was full of dog hair. I called downstairs and explained to them the situation, they said that they would make sure it was clean. Next day when I came back I checked the room and the sofa was better but still had dog hairs, and the bone was still there. I just cleaned it myself. This hotel did not meet my expectation, and I was disappointed since I have stayed at other Sheraton hotels. I will not be staying there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BallisticBelle the most comfortable bed ever!
The Suite concept is a brilliant idea and they are so very well designed with pocket doors to section off rooms if need be.....everything about the little sleep is wonderful the bed in bed linens are so soft and comfortable very conducive to a wonderful night sleep. I did, however, find the commode rather low to the ground in the bathroom but then I thought perhaps this was deliberate as the Suites may cater to families with small children......us older/business travelers like them higher off the ground :-). Looking forward to my next stay!

Generally a well managed hotel. Rooms good. Staff good. Hotel well maintained except pool which has some deficiencies. Pool needs to be painted. No umbrellas on roof so you have to sit in the sun.
Restaurant and happy hour good but need a more extensive menu for both happy hour and the restaurant. $14 for breakfast too much especially for a family. Go to Plantation Diner on Broward Blvd, east of hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RayN This hotel is in a Great Location and had Great Service.
I am from the Bahamas, and travel to Fort Lauderdale quite frequently. I love staying at this hotel but I must add that I always stay at the Sherarton when travelling. The Service here is remarkable, the staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. The only downside is the bathrooms really need to be cleaned thoroughly because there was mold visible in the shower and clearly in the back of the sink (which can be seen in the mirror). It was an overnight trip so no need to change rooms, but Ive noticed for the last few trips that the bathrooms have mold, and it really grosses me out so that is something the hotel can work on. The couches can also use some replacing. I think because of the bathrooms I just may stay somewhere else but if this issue can be resolved I would definitely continue to stay here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunblader Nice suites, central location to shopping
We stay at this hotel when going to concerts at BB&T Center. Short ride away. Nice pool deck on top of the hotel. Worth the upgrade to the Jacuzzi Suites if you can. Food is good. Standard Sheraton fare. Hallways need some updating and the furniture is looking used but it's a nice hotel for the price and/or redemption level.

The hotel stay was so excellent we did not want to leave. The staff was extremely helpful and responsive to our needs. We obtained a bellhop when arriving and checking out and the bellhop was prompt and efficient. He arrived within 5 minutes of our request. The hotel was ready in time for our arrival, and our room was clean and smelled fresh. Everything in the room functioned correctly. The restaurant in the hotel was delicious and had good prices. All the staff was extremely friendly as well.
And everything in the hotel was pleasant to look at. It was close to all the activities we were looking to attend (Like the Westfield Mall, Jungle Queen, Museum of Science and Discovery).
At check in we didn't receive our Breakfast vouchers, but the staff had no problem correcting the mistake for us. That was the only problem we encountered, if you can even call it a problem because it created no hassle at all.
The rooftop pool and jacuzzi had a great view, and the gym was clean. The hotel was easy to navigate, and had speedy elevators.
Overall it was a great stay and I highly recommend the hotel.

I was apprehensive about spending time at this hotel for a week because of some negative reviews; I was pleasantly surprised that things were topnotch.
We checked in 1am and was greeted by the sweetest person at the front desk. When we got to our room I couldn't believe how spacious and clean it was.
There isn't one bad thing I can say about this establishment.
If I could give ten stars I would; I am a very picky person and I was impressed.

Andriana went out of her way to accommodate my sister and mother's needs. My mother is 91 years old and moving out of the hotel for one day just to come back again was going to be a nightmare. Andriana was sensitive to this and helped us keep her in the hotel for an additional 3 days.
This is what it is all about. This is why I can be happy to stay at Starwood properties wherever I travel throughout the world.
Thank you Andriana!!
