Rated 5 out of 5 by Anne90 Hotel close to everything
We arrived early and we're pleasantly surprised that our room was ready. It was
a beach view room and nicely decorated and clean. The beds were very comfortable.
The staff was very accommodating and friendly.
The breakfasts were very good lots of choices.
The only downside was Dos Caminos was
all Mexican food. We would have preferred
more of a choice.
We would stay there again..

Rated 5 out of 5 by sky322 wonderful hospitality
The staff was more than accommodating. The valet was exceptionally wonderful. Although it was always very busy there, they had everything under control. They were very quick and never had me waiting. Anything we needed, staff was more than willing to help. Very pleased overall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Bear Not up to par
Of the 50+ nights I spent in SPG hotels this year these were the least impressive. No refrigerator in the room. Called Guest services for a request and the phone never was answered. Couldn't get a Bloody Mary until the pool bar opened up at 11:00 am on Sunday morning. Main Restaraunt bar opens at 4:00 pm, but does not provide any food until 5:30 pm on Saturday. Not even chips or pretzels. Supposed to be a resort, No hot tub. Pools areas are small and cramped. The lounge chairs by pool fill up quickly. No blue cheese stuffed olives at the bar. I bought some blue cheese and made my own stuffed olives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zory The Best Vacation I've Had In A Long While!
It was my first "real" family vacation and the Ft. Lauderdale Sheraton did not disappoint neither me nor my children. Even now 2 months since we were there they can not stop talking about their time in the hotel. We had a fabulous time. Dos Caminos is a great restaurant. Not only the food but the service aswell. Everything was EXCELLENT!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TheHoneymooners Great Value
If you compare this hotel to many others in this area or Miami, you could not get nearly the value of such a clean and friendly staffed place. It may not be the "fanciest" appearance in comparison to some others, but the food, drink and rooms are stellar and the staff are some of the most dedicated and friendliest we've met!

Hotel is perfectly located on the beach. Staff was beyond accomodating! Clean and comfortable conditions! Exceptional valet staff - almost made the 25.00 daily valet charge worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rozay Great Location
Front desk staff and pool staff were very courteous and polite. Allan is to be commended for his client service. The fitness center was very clean, spacious and a wide variety of different equipment.
Free WiFi were only offered in the main lounge...would have liked to have free WiFi from the rooms as well.

The location and hotel was wonderful....just don't trust the people in the restaurants. I was overcharged when on a credit card and short changed when using cash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by djk890 Beach proximity is best feature
Overall, this was a good deal for SPG redemption in South Florida specifically for a place with good beach access. The nearby Westin is a higher category and you have to cross the street to get to the beach. With our 4 little kids this wouldn't be easy. The hotel was accommodating, but it seems quite dated in decor throughout much of the property. Parking is $20/night for self-park ($25/valet), but if you're staying 7 nights or more then ask for the extended stay rate ($15/night). The famed mermaid show was cute for about 5 minutes, but gets boring if you stay for the full 30 minutes. It is free, though. The restaurant, Dos Caminos, is pretty good, but somewhat pricey and the service was a little slow. The pool is small but nice and clean, however, the large hotel next door blocks the sun for most of the day (at least in the winter months). Most of the staff was friendly, but a few seemed kind of snobby or unfriendly. It wasn't a bad stay, but I wouldn't be excited to go back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GolfBum43 Perfect
My friends and I meet someplace warm every winter to play a few rounds of golf and catch up. The Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel is the perfect venu. The hotel is right on the beach and it's close to a ton of great golf courses. Dos Caminos has the best homemade guacomole I've ever had.

Came down for a nice weekend and made the mistake of booking a cheap place accross the street, grossed us out. Came over to the Sheraton because we have stayed there before and they more then please us. Gave us a room with a great location and a fair price. we will be back

Rated 4 out of 5 by JimFla Room requests not met
Reservation for this hotel was requested 3 days prior to arrival. My SPG profile and reservation expressly requested a feather free room. On arrival I checked in at the SPG desk. The service was prompt and pleasant. I went to my (standard) room. Within minutes my companion, who was highly allergic to feathers began to break out and cough. I contacted guest services, they had no knowledge of my request. Back to the front desk. Desk agent prepared a room with a first level view of the parking lot. After I explained this wasn't acceptable, and after another 40 minute wait I was upgraded to a ocean View room. A nice touch after a hour and a half check in ordeal. I might add while waiting in the lobby, trash was overflowing and on the floor in the hospitality area.

My wife and I arrived this past weekend for a getaway. We loved the classic re-done hotel and staff. The property is one of few that are actually on the beach and not across the street. Great location in general for other fun spots as well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Toad1976 Disappointing stay
I was disappointed in this hotel. The door locks were difficult to use and when asking for help, on received a reply that "They are tricky." Bugs in the room. Food in the restaurant was ok but the service was slow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by heatherheather loved my stay!
I stayed here over the forth of July in 2012. I am a starwood preferred guest and really enjoyed my experience. Right from the start the staff treated us exceptionally well. There was a long line to check in, but there was no line for the preferred guest check in! The kind lady who checked us in upgraded us to a room with a view. We were on the top floor of the taller hotel. We had a view of the boats in the harbor and the beach! I wish I could post a picture because our view was fabulous. They even gave me a free mini-fridge. My boyfriend and I loved the beach side cocktail service. Try the key lime daiquiri! yumm!! Yes, there are some fees such as $20 a night parking. However, I loved my stay. Also, my boyfriend and I are in our mid-twenties (for reference) This is not a chain hotel with typical continental breakfasts with cereal... I didn't care about that at all (in reference to the review below) it was a great stay and I would highly recommend it! however, make sure you request a beach view. if not, some of the views are pretty poor. also, the fitness center was pretty good for a hotel gym :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Min13 Friendly staff and beautiful oceanfront view
I stayed here for just 1 night (unfortunately) during a business trip and thoroughly enjoyed the short stay. Front desk staff was very welcoming and helpful. Room service was fast and offered flexibility with the menu. I was upgraded to a room facing the ocean just above the swimming pool and it was an amazing view. Imagine waking up and looking out the floor-to-ceiling windows to see the sun rise over the ocean. Absolutely amazing. I would definitely stay here again just for the views. The hotel does appear a bit dated and could use some upkeep, but is expected given its age. Pleasant staff more than make up for those kinds of minor details.

Hotel is ok but not fancy.
Big minus was smoking policy. I smoke cicars but smoking was prohibited everywhere. There should be somekind of smoking area or room. That's why I chooce differently next time.
