This property, while not "the Ritz", is comfortable, clean and very convenient to the Central Ft beach area. We found the staff extremely helpful and kind and couldn't do enough for us during our stay with them. The bed was dreamy! A quiet option too with concrete walls between rooms.

Clean for the most part, fairly dated. Lack of daily service one day of my stay. Terrible lowflow shower pressure. My last night I had small bugs flying around, not sure if they were mosquitoes or not. The pool was empty, they did tell me they had another pool at another property I could use. Not wanting to walk to...

Fortuna hotel is a difficult place to rate. The location is one block from the beach so that is a big plus. I would give the hotel staff a 5 star rating! They were awesome! Very friendly, accommodating and professional. The hotel is under major renovations and you can see that the outcome is going to be wonderful. We visited...

Small, but cozy and nicely appointed modern room. Large bed was appreciated. Nice grounds w/ pool. Large TV and coffee maker. Although closet was small, there was plenty of room for overnight clothing.

Our visit was great. We planned on staying for only one night because we were heading out to the Bahamas. Because of Hurricane Matthew we had to alter our plans and extended our visit for three more nights. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and modern. The pool was kept clean and the...

I am really happy with my stay at the Fortuna Hotel. It was a small hotel but perfectly decorated. The rooms were clean and spacious. The staff was helpful as well. I had asked if they had a clothing iron I could borrow, and they immediately brought it to my room. It is also very close to the beach, pretty...

The Fortuna is a contemporary boutique in the best location at Fort Lauderdale beach, restaurants, bars and bike share. Our room was clean, and the king bed was very comfy. We will definately go back there!
