How to Get There
Stayed her for 2 nights at the end of a 3 week trip to Florida. Chose this hotel as it was near the airport and the grounds looked nice, and tower impressive, but we found out when we arrived that the tower is closed for refurbishment, which i don't recall seeing anywhere on their website.
On arrival bell service was slow and we had to unload ourselves. Our rooms weren't ready (at 4.00pm) but the receptionist quickly rearranged the rooms to get us into some different rooms similar to those i had requested.
There is a central courtyard which houses the pool and it is surrounded by 2 story square which houses the room. We chose a room on the ground floor (2060) so you can open your patio door and walk out to the pool area and a room on the first floor which had a balcony (2304 - in Lanai building)). The balcony rooms do not overlook the river or marina but overlook the central courtyard area.
There is only one lift to get your luggage up to the first floor and its by reception and then you have to walk around the perimeter of the building to your room.
Now the rooms though large are really tired and need some desperate updating. The bathroom furniture is dated, the door to the room was warped and didn't close or open easily, the sliding door to the balcony was a struggle to shut.
My daughter got injured on one of the beds in her room, though I must say the manager was very helpful and apologetic in getting this sorted out.
The pool is great and there is a large small pool size hot tub as well. Though the sign said swimming pool closes at sunset it was used up to 11.00 pm on both nights.
There is a gym and a spa on the ground floor but we didn't use this. We did have breakfast in the main restaurant and it was disappointing. Apparently the buffet is not available every day so probably worth checking before you book.
Like previous reviewers have stated, why they need to be charging $30.00 a night for parking, I'm not sure, this was even more than we paid at the Disney resort. I wonder if the parking is not the hotel's which is why there is such a high charge.
We had a comfortable stay, despite the issues and once they modernise the whole place this will be a great hotel, until then i would probably choose somewhere else.
I decided to do a solo trip for my birthday, and I am so glad to have spent it with the wonderful people at Pier 66! Even before I arrived, a warm email from the GM and extra special attention from Concierge was unexpected. Every encounter with staff from Elizabeth at the Front Desk to Matt and Brian at the Lounge Bar was amazing!
Parking $30.00 rip off no security can be found,lot is not well kept or lighted well. Landscaping needs work. Housekeeping not good 2nd day we did not receive housekeeping had to call 5pm to get towels,toilet tissue. Called maintance to fix wooded doors on balcony that did not close all the and off tracking which they never fixed,left several notes to housekeeping to make them aware. Rooms need a painting ,need new furniture . Bathroom sink fixtures to small for sink. Toilet flush handle broken,needs new tile. Door to room screws loose which we had to tighten. Whole place needs work. Pool needs cleaning . At night had to put towels on balcony door so light would not come in . Stay away.
This was the last 2 nights of a wonderful trip to Florida. From the outside and arriving at the hotel there is a large building Pier 66. Unfortunately our room was in another building overlooking the side marina view however the balcony was so small you could not sit out. The rooms are very tired looking, there was a lot of dust and dirt on the floor as well as furniture. You need earplugs to sleep at night because of the loud air-conditioning. The thing that disappointed us the most was breakfast. At almost $100 for a family of 3, the selection was very limited and to have an omelette would cost you more money. The hot food was not great either. We were very disappointed. I also feel $30per day is ridiculous to pay for parking as every other venue we stayed at was free. I understand the hotel has been taken over but I seriously think you need to look at what you are offering. Not value for money.
I won a two night stay at the Pier Sixty Six Hotel at an event's silent auction that I attended. I was surprised to find that the hotel is pet friendly which was very important to me because I recently adopted a puppy and I intended to bring him with me. The hotel was very accommodating and welcoming of our pup Mochi. Our room was right off the pool and we had an amazing view of the hotel and grounds. There was plenty of walking area along the inter coastal which was convenient for quick potty trips. We found lots of things to do in the area that were dog friendly as well, the Boatyard restaurant, which is right down the road, has a beautiful patio area that is dog friendly. I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking to bring your dog on a trip to Fort Lauderdale.
