Our stay at this classy boutique hotel was a fantastic experience. We were welcomed by very pleasant staff who provided a tour of the restaurant, pool area and our suite. After settling in, we sat on very comfortable lounge chairs around the beautiful pool which is surrounded by lush greenery along side the intercostal enjoying our complimentary glass of wine....

Our first time at The Pillars. It was special in every way. From welcoming to leaving, everything and everyone was first rate! Our room was lovely, our breakfast by the Intercoastal Waterway was special. Looking forward to our next visit!

We were members of slh club, looking forward to this place. Disappointed with the small room and extremely small bathroom, like a refinished motel!staff was very friendly and the view of the intracoastal sitting at the pool was nice. We are accustomed to a more luxurious experience, so this was sadly not up to our standards. The food at the...

Stayed for a couple of days in this fantastic hotel before our cruise. So fabulous to stay somewhere so personal and boutique. Restaurant dinner was AMAZING. The ability to have your meal down at the water edge and have the water taxi pick you up there and drop you back was so great. Would recommend this to anyone going to...

I stayed at The Pillars many times in the last 10 years and was back 2 weeks ago for a quick getaway. The hotel is as charming as ever and the latest changes are refreshing! The staff is always present and pleasant, and Carmen's kindness is so genuine, she makes you feel right at home. The rooms are tastefully decorated...

A very nice boutique hotel that we have used on 5 occasions in the past 7 years which consistently reaches a very high standard of service. It is not a cheap option,however if you want a small discreet place to stay,this is the place to stay. The only problem we encountered was trying to get the room television to work....

We have been visiting The Pillars for almost ten years and it remains our favourite hotel for a Fort Lauderdale stay or for pre cruise relaxing. The staff are attentive and remember us whenever we stay , and the service is great. Meals on the dock are a marvellous dining experience and the Secret Garden a truly enjoyable dinner experience....

A peaceful oasis in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale. Really great food. The staff is both excellent and remarkably friendly. Looking forward to my next stay! We live in Fort Lauderdale but love to come to the Pillars to get away from it all. The decor is contemporary yet classic. The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable.
