... our way to Central Park. Yes a real open air park in the middle of the ship. We head to the Park Cafe for some lunch. A lovely, make your own salad, followed by delicious roast beef sandwiches. We then head to Cafe Promenade. More photos, more oohs and aahs. This ship has just about more of everything. As impressive as it is I can't help but have the feeling we are in the middle of a giant shopping mall rather than on a ship. But that's just this section. The ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Worthington Guest House Fort Lauderdale
I stayed at the Worthington in June of this year, my second time at this gay complex and the experience was every bit as good this time too.
A Great Place to Stay
My Partner and I both enjoyed our stay between Christmas and New Years. Our room was clean and the staff very accomodating. The grounds were well maintained. However, the one clincher for us were the friendly people. From all over the US, we enjoyed the company that made up the Worthington. Everyone there got to know one and other, all the while respecting each others privacy. My only one critisism was that they could have cleaned the jacuzzi more often. But this was a small problem that was easy to over look, given the time of year and considering the cleanliness and attention to detail in the rest of the hotel. It was definitely worth the expense. We will be back!
Have a great day,
Loved It !!!
OMG this hotel is amazing. not only is it clean and tidy, great pool and spa but the staff are great as well. yes it might be a little more than other gay/friendly hotels around that area but it is definately worth it. it isnt one of those hotels where if you leave the door open, or curtain open a certain distance it means something, just friendly and relaxed people there to have a good time.
the rooms are cleaned every day and nice rooms as well, great setting, near the ocean about a two minute walk, not even. loved it there!!
Beautiful grounds, great rates, all round excellent stay
We found The Worthington to be a comfortable, clean and beautiful place to spend our vacation. We hardly ever left the resort. The rooms were so comfortable and warmly decorated. The fellow guests were all so nice, and alot of them have been coming to The Worthington year after year. Well we have joined them and made our reservation for next year already. What a great resort!

Absolutly Beautiful, A tropical Paradise
this was probally the most beautiful resort we have stayed at, the grounds well manicured. Large pool, Jacuzzi and nice courtyard waterfall. we found the rooms to well appointed and comfortable. The ownwers and the entire staff very friendly and helpful with respect were to go and things to do. Definently a must place to stay.
To much for too little
Way overpriced. The rooms have had some touch ups, but still...
The owners are greedy and try to milk yu for every cent, like phone calls and the like. When you're paying $200 a night for a bed you would think they would throw in a local call.
Very small quarters so you hear every sound from every room
Very nice and relaxing
My friend and I stayed there for a week in April and have nothing but positive things to say about the place,The staff were friendly and helpful/Rooms and beds were very comfortable and clean,The pool area was great and it's just a short two block walk to the beach.Wifi access would be a nice touch for people traveling with there laptops,If the owners happen to read this :)
If you have never been to Ft. Lauderdale,Renting a car is a must,As getting a cab in Ft Lauderdale is next to impossibe,The bars/clubs are spread out all over the place.
The rooms were ok and the grounds quite nice. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful upon my check-in; but the gentleman they have in charge of the place that weekend while the owners were away was extremely unwelcoming and downright rude. Rumor has it he's there to attract potential guests, but what he really ends up doing is to prevent those already there from returning or recommending the place to others.
Awesome little place
This is a great little boutique resort for gay men. The rooms are modern and very very clean. The grounds are immaculate and the pool is beautiful! Just a short walk to the great beaches of Ft lauderdale, the staff is very polite and the rates very reasonable.
