We woke up around 8am, and we had coffee and breakfast. We got all our stuff together; the van was picking us up at 11am. It was right on time, and the drive to the pier was uneventful. We arrived at the pier, and it was craziness. For some reason, there were still passengers getting off. We found the suite line (our moms could come with us), and checked in quickly.
We were able to go right on the ship, and they were amazed. We wandered ...

We picked up our rental car and drove about 15 minutes to our resort, The Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort. Technically, it isn't on the beach, but it is a quick walk down the street. Our home away from home is nice, although we are right across from the elevator and have a nice view of a parking lot.
We walked ...
... looked like the mast was just two or three inches too high to pass under the bridge when it was closed. What an anticlimax!
We took a taxi to the pier and boarded the ship. We immediately went up to the Lido deck to have lunch, since it was by now after noon, and we were feeling a bit hungry. I took some pictures, and then our room was declared ready. I decided to go on the ship familiarization tour, and took my camera with me so ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Boca Raton Bridge Hotel
Horrible construaction was deafening
First, this hotel is no longer a Radisson. The hotel itself was fine - nice, clean rooms, nice pool and view. Balconies and ocean view in each room. BUT there is extremely LOUD construction on a bridge right outside the hotel all day long. I think it is going on through July. It was terrible - you could not speak to each other at breakfast or lunch (restaurant is open air) or at the pool. It gave me a headache. Certainly not a relaxing atmosphere. We were not informed of this at check-in. Some notice and a free meal or something to compensate would have been nice. Do NOT stay here until the construction is past. The noise is really that bad.
First time in Boca
We stayed from 4/8 thru 4/11. Great location, a very , very nice neighborhood , reminded us of Wailea , Maui.The suite was fantastic . Huge , a fantastic view , and spotless. A five minute walk to the beach. One mile away from downtown , and endless places to eat , but still quiet and next to the ocean.Negatives were a very small and sometimes overcrowded pool. Parking is very tight, and the valet is sometimes very busy , but you just slow done and relax. Go for a suite instead of the standard room.Would stay there again.

I visited this hotel this weekend. The view was excelent. We had a room on the 4th floor overlooking the water.(Room 414) The draw bridge was a great sight. We have no complaints over the noise from the bridge and the lift warnings as we could not hear them when the door was shut. The staff was pleasant but the valet systems didn't quite work. They brought the wrong car to us twice and they weren't very excited about helping us although there was someone always there to open the door for us.
I was not impressed. In fact I moved out after only a day. Yes you see a bridge, but it sounds like a highway as cars whiz by all day and night long. Trust me, you're not sitting in a lounge chair by the beach - its a highway.
But what really ticked me was that the pool is behind the building and the way its positioned, by 1 PM in the afternoon, you get no sun! I'm from Canada. I want lots of sun in Florida not a shadow in the early afternoon.
The actual rooms were very mediocre for the price.
I felt I had no value at all.
A nice, all-suite hotel with excellent views of the intercoastal and ocean from the balcony. BUT, the hotel is located right next to a drawbridge, and every time a boat goes through, a very loud horn blows to raise the bridge. This happens quite frequently from 6 am to midnight. We always take good earplugs on our hotel stays, so we had no problem sleeping, but the noise was irritating enough that we checked out after the first day and moved to a quieter (and cheaper) location. At these prices, you really should be able to expect amenities such as a lobby that's bigger than your hotel room, and occaisional peace and quite. I'm sure it's not a problem on the other side of the hotel, but if you step out on your balcony and it looks like you are right on top of the bridge, ask to move to another room immediately.
Great place to stay
Very nice hotel,very cool surroundings...
This review is a testament to the staff and atmosphere at the Bridge Resort. Our third visit to this hotel almost didn't happen this year. I went on-line to book a room as usual except they were booked for our travel dates! A call to the Radisson reservation line confirmed it - we had to look somewhere else for a place to stay. We searched and searched - read coments here on Tripadvisor about other hotels but we weren't really ready to give up on "our" place. So I called back and spoke to a nice guy who managed to wrangle a room for us at $189 a night. Well....it was more than we hoped to pay and didn't include breakfast (all our stays in the past have included it)....but it is "our" place so we booked it. After searching some more for other hotels at lower rates, my husband convinced me to call the hotel itself and speak with their in-house reservation desk. I did and I got the chance to speak with Heather. It was our lucky day! Or maybe it wasn't luck at all - during every stay at this hotel we've encountered superior staff who are always eager to help. Heather listened to my story and was quick to find a room for us at $119 a night that INCLUDED breakfast!
The hotel is OK. It used to be very classy some years ago but is showing signs of aging. Ask for a renovated room with a king bed because the unrenovated rooms have tiny closet bathrooms and are a bit dingy. The double beds sink in. The staff is generally friendly but we happened to encounter the one unfriendly lady that handled our complaints with a frown and a smirk. Complaints included not giving us a king size room because of "other guests extending their stay" and not agreeing to move us when one came available without a big fight (including calling the radisson national complaint line). Other complaints: old plumbing in some rooms - my father's flooded one night, the bridge side is noisy because of the bridge and the bar. The pool is tiny, the beach is a hassle to get to (you have to walk over the bridge, back under through an unmarked gate and through the boca resort to find a gray sand beach). The beach is much nicer in deerfield just 5 minutes drive down the road but with annoying metered parking. The air conditioners won't turn all the way off and make a very loud noise. We put our bedspread over it which helped. The room smelled mildly of carpet cleaner. The toilets are very low and easily clogged. The bathtubs are small and you wouldn't likely want to take a bath in them.
Great View at any price
The room was somewhat small but had a decent balcony,and was clean and comfortable.The staff were friendly and helpfull.We were on the oceanside on the top (5th) floor.Magificent views of the Intercoastal and Atlantic.The only significant downside was the location of the pool.You must walk through the Bar to get to it.
Good value even in high season.
Nice, convenient and reasonably priced hotel.
