But it is Holiday season and everynoe was sold out of hire cars, finally Gang managed to get us aDodge for 2 days.. Bit expensive but ok, then it seems that it is …

Transatlantic Cruise/Europe Sightseeing

... near the cruise terminal. Once checked in to our hotel, we walked to CVS to buy 8 bottles of wine to bring on board the ship tomorrow. I kinda doubt the 8 bottles will suffice! But have no fear, there are 13 bars on board, so somehow I think I'll survive. After dinner, we'll climb into our bed for a restful sleep, I'm ...

... it's another pass through Immigration, and again it's quite quick. The excursion of the day is a city tour on one of the double-decker busses, and our guide, Ashley, is waiting just outside the cruise terminal with the bus. With 90 people staying over for the next cruise, we really expected more than 40 people on our tour, but apparently some ...

Bag 'O Donuts & A Beach Party

... to, not to mention knowing that in less than a week I could be on one of them; I'm so ready to go!

Wish me luck!

Oh, and how could I forget, an innocent day trip to the beach becomes a group of us at a beach front bar. The waitress hooked it up, giving us a 2 for 1 coupon! I'm noticing a trend here. They have MASSIVE clam shell buckets, for lack of a better word, filled with a blue rum punch concoction, finished with fresh fruit. Delish.

    Working out the kinks....

    from

    I have stayed in countless St. Regis properties around the world, and this one has a ways to go before it can be on par with its "siblings". Agree with another poster who suggested the hotel may have been better served waiting a few more months to open as there are many kinks that need to be worked-out.

    Kitty Carlisle Would Have COnserns

    from

    When I was 8 years old my Aunt Ann took it upon herself (she was the brightest in the family) to throw me into a taxi and whisk me off to the St. Regis in New York for tea. Imagine how I felt seeing all those delicious and fabulous tea sandwiches and pastries made- as only an 8 year old can think - especially for me. The focal point that day was not the large floral arrangements dead center or the unusual for New York Palm plants adorning the room but the New York Socialite and actress Kitty Carlyle, who was sipping tea with a lady friend of hers. As she glanced into my eyes and smiled, I knew then at that moment in time that I was approved as a socialite and I would

    Beautiful hotel with some minor flaws

    from

    Just got back from a 4 night stay . The hotel itself is beautiful, and the rooms were very nice as well. Booked an intercoastal room; received complimentary upgrade to ocean view. Was greeted by the butler upon check-in, where she escorted us to our room, and told us about the features of the room, etc. The few things that I was not impressed with were 1.) $30/day parking, but that is to be expected in Ft. Lauderdale (next time we will forgo the rental car, as we didn't even use it once during the entire stay 2.) The hotel staff called our room on a minimum of 3 times a day, every single day (seeing if we are enjoying our stay, etc.) which I found INCREDIBLY annoying, as the LAST thing I want to hear while on vacation is a phone ringing 3.) I realize that it is all about the almighty $$, but I feel that the resort would have been better served having waited until it was completely finished before opening. No spa, no gift shop, no bridge access (as advertised) 4.) The staff seemed uneducated on the workings of the hotel, as the same question asked to 4 different staff members resulted in 4 very different responses. Overall, however, once they work out the kinks, I have no doubt this will be a top-notch resort, like their sister property down the road, The Atlantic.

    Hating Leaving!

    from

    Just returned from a 5 day stay at the St Regis and loved it. My husband and I were there celebrating our anniversary. We arrived early and were able to check in without a problem. The butler showed us around and took us to our oceanfront room. We paid for an intracoastal view and were upgraded. The spacious room was decorated nicely. I enjoyed the robe, slippers, and amenities. The view was fantastic from the 12th floor!

    Beautiful Hotel & Great Service

    from

    We spent the weekend of June 1-4 2007 at the St. Regis Fort Lauderdale Hotel and I have to say this hotel is magnificient. The hotel itself and the rooms are impeccably clean. The service is nothing short of superior. All of the staff that we encountered were friendly, sweet and willing to help in any way possible.

    Un bonito hotel con un servicio estupendo

    from

    Pasamos el fin de semana del uno al cuatro de junio de dos mil siete en el hotel St. Regis Fort Lauderdale y tengo que decir que es un lugar magnífico. El hotel en sí así como las habitaciones están limpísimos. El servicio era de una calidad increíble, de hecho todo el personal que encontramos era amable, cariñoso y dispuesto a ayudar de cualquier manera. Todavía no han acabado el balneario pero ofrecen servicio de transporte hasta el Atlantic. La piscina es preciosa, de hecho es donde pasamos nuestro tiempo en vez de atravesar la calle para ir a la playa tan concurrida. Un empleado que trabaja en la piscina nos dijo que habían diseñado el hotel de manera que el cliente se sintiera como en un barco, y es exactamente así como te sientes allí, en la cubierta de la piscina del piso séptimo. Cero, que es el único restaurante, es fabuloso. Te aconsejo que pruebes el postre "Cappucino Brioche Ball" porque es divino, también el chupachús de lima con chocolate blanco es impresionante, pero tampoco te pierdas los gnocchis caseros. La selección de alimentos para comer en la habitación así como el servicio eran de lo mejor que he visto en mucho tiempo. Definitivamente, este hotel es "un diamante en bruto" que tu puedes comprobar si decides dar un paseo por el paseo A1A de las inmediaciones.

    Great Stay with a Caveat or Two

    from

    We stayed for 5 days from May 16th. It's a magnificent property without a doubt. The entrance to the hotel is very understated and was a bit difficult to find. There are more valets waiting to welcome you than I've seen at other 5 star properties. Once past the front doors every staff member greeted us like dignitaries. Immediately a "Butler" approached and escorted us to the front desk for registration. Our Butler was a gentleman named Santiago. He was a constant for our stay and couldn't do enough to make us happy or correct any difficiency we experienced. He escorted us to our room and gave us a tour of the property. Note: he called us by name everytime we saw him. Nice touch. The room was "crisp", great lines, comfortable. The bed excellent, the bath opulent. The TV was a pain in the [--]. There's some sort of delay everytime you press a button on the remote control. The bellman told us about it immediately upon entering the room for the first time. Oh, if you want ice in the room call room service - no ice machines.

    Fabulous

    from

    I had an excellent 4-day stay at the brand new St. Regis over Memorial Day. It is a very contemporary, elegant, but informal and inviting environment. The decor of the rooms has very clean lines, and is understated and contemporary. I had a large corner oceanfront room with a terrace. The frontprint of the room, as well as the modern decor is very reminiscent of the St. Regis San Francisco room where I've previously stayed. The service is warm and well-meaning, and includes butler service. The pool is on a large deck on the 7th floor, which has a beautiful view of the ocean. The large canopy over the bar looks like a sail so the entire pool deck can pass for an elegant cruise setting. There was a nice breeze so sitting under the canopy was a fantastic respite for lunch or to get out of the sun. The restaurant, Cero, which I ate 2 dinners at, as well as had an after dinner dessert/drink serves excellent food. I highly recommend sitting outside on the terrace for dinner, if the weather is nice, as it was last week. There is also a wine bar. The beach is right across the street.

    5 Star Luxury in Fort Lauderdale

    Ok, so let me admit that I didn't say over night, but I along with some friends spent most of Saturday night lounging, eating and drinking at the new St.Regis in Fort Lauderdale (A staff member said the property was 10 days new).
