“White walls, dark woods and large windows: the interior design of The Pillar weaves together an appreciation for contemporary comfort and a nostalgic nod to British colonial style. Situated directly on the Intercostal Waterway, this hotel is the prime Fort Lauderdale destination for discerning guests seeking a sophisticated sanctuary.
For gourmands, the on-site restaurant 'The Secret Garden' dishes up mouth-watering plates of Mediterranean cuisine with an American flair, and there is the option of taking your meal in your room or even dockside, as well as in the well-appointed dining room.
The Pillars is only a short ride by Boat Taxi from the sights and sounds of Fort Lauderdale, meaning that guests can spend their days meandering the Art Deco streets, browsing boutiques or enjoying a refreshing drink on the waterfront.
Back at the hotel, there is an outdoor pool surrounded by vibrant gardens bursting with the scent of tropical flowers where guests can while away the hours.”
Situated on New River Sound, a block from the beach, this classic Art Deco hotel is "a delightful, polished, intimate gem directly on the Intracoastal Waterway. The sunsets here are magical." British colonial–style guest rooms and suites, done in soft greens and yellows, with dark woods and black-and-white pictures by a local artist, are "comfortable, not pretentious." Marble bathrooms have Molton Brown amenities. "Dining dockside is wonderful, and the food is pretty terrific"—American cuisine with Moroccan accents, courtesy of the Moroccan chef.
