Gallery ONE - A Doubletree Guest Suites Hotel Ft Lauderdale

I recently stayed at the Doubletree Suites in Ft Lauderdale for business for 2 nights.

The reviews for this hotel are right on, the hotel is very nice. The rooms are very spacious with their own kitchenette, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The living room has a 42" plasma tv, the bedroom a regular tv. The living room has a sofa, dining room table and chairs. The bathroom is very nice size with a wonderful rainfall shower (there is no tub). I will say it is noisy, you are better off getting a room facing the water, mine was on the corner facing the water but also by the bridge where most of the noise comes from...its not overwhelming but it would nice if it wasn't there.

The room service was prompt and very room. The hotel has a nice fitness center with modern equipment. The hotel is very close to the beach and connects to the Galleria mall where you can also find restaurants and shopping. The A/C doesnt cool the room as much as I prefer, I like a really cold room to sleep in and the A/C doesn't cool much below 70 so if you like that also you may find it a problem.

Overall very nice, although I have to say that they have just built a new Hilton on the beach not far from here and I will probably stay there next time im here, otherwise I would have no problem coming back..
