Boutique hotel in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, with a pool and buzzy waterfront restaurant
This 18-room boutique charmer blends the intimacy of a B+B with all the comforts of a hotel—including warm croissants for breakfast, a heated pool overlooking the Intracoastal Waterway, and iced tea and lemon water in the lobby and poolside. There’s also a stylish restaurant, The Secret Garden, with Moroccan-inflected cuisine served in the dining room or on the dock above the Intracoastal—but only to hotel guests and members of the Secret Garden Dining Club.
In the Area
Fort Lauderdale beach is a five-minute walk away from the Pillars. Guests who prefer lake sailing to ocean swimming can charter the hotel’s yacht and take it into Lake Sylvia. There’s canoeing, hiking, cycling or skating in nearby Hugh Taylor Birch State Park for active types, or the Bonnet House 1920 for history buffs. Shopping, dining, and nightlife can be found on hopping Las Olas Boulevard—Pillar House visitors can get there via water taxi from the hotel’s private dock space.
