"1950's Boutique--no corners cut"
Hotel--human scale, clean and well kept. Two nice pools, but no other thrills/amenities. In the days of guaranteed continental breakfasts, nothing here which I can appreciate. If you don't do it well (i.e. eggs out of a box), don't do it. Great outdoor spaces, chairs and tables. The courtyard (2x) is like home. Wifi is not good Room--elegantly designed with mid-century modern finishes and a great 2 way color scheme, my room was amazing. Likely a former one bedroom apartment, it was huge and homey. I was there for work, no desks, but plenty of space to spread out at the kitchen table. There was a lack of thought behind putting in plugs (easily rectified by selecting lamps with outlets) so this was one of the few items overlooked in the modernization effort. I loved the decor. Clean and simple. Little bit of a residual smoke smell (non-smoking room), this is probably hold over from the pre-rehab. Location--perfect if you want to be by Fort Lauderdale Beach.

"Fancy and small."
The hotel is perfectly located. Close to the beach and restaurants, 15 minutes drive from FLL airport. They were very helpful at the hotel as we arrived late. Personalized, small, fancy, fresh and clean. We liked it because very good alternative to the big hotels around.

"First time visitors"
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, just a few steps to the beach, a short walk to shops and restaurants. Just a wonderful location. The temperature of the pools were a little high for our liking, but with the Atlantic so close we didn't need the pools. The entire staff was friendly, courteous and helpful at all times. We are already in the planning stages for a return trip.

"Nicely Renovated Older Hotel"
This hotel has all exterior rooms facing one of two pool courtyards. Renovated in an art deco style, the rooms are sleek and very functional. The beach is a short walk away as are restaurants. The staff were very nice upon check in. We had to wait for our room (check-in is at 3) and spent the time by one of the two pools. The pools are small but there is seating around them and umbrellas for those who want shade. The room appeared quite clean with the exception of the floors which turned our white socks dark. The manager said he would arrange for an airport shuttle at 5:30 the next morning but non arrived. After a frantic call to the night manager, a taxi was called and a speedy ride to the airport got us on out flight. A bit stressful but we got home.

Travelling on business. Very friendly reception and room was spacious and comfortable. Two pools, both of which looked clean and well tended. I had to send a fax late one night and although it's not a business hotel, the lady at reception was fantastically patient and helpful with my unreasonable request.

"Break away from the big chains"
Finding the hotel was slightly difficult with a late night arrival but the very friendly staff and beautiful room more than made up for that slight discomfort. Do not let the outside appearance put you off. This hotel is excellent! Our room was extremely clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed the restaurant just around the corner. This will definitely be our pre-cruise stop in the future.

"A low-key, friendly hotel."
We often prefer not to stay in large, impersonal hotels, so The Aqua fit the bill. The trade-off, of course, is fewer amenities and services, but we were willing to give them up and try something different. The hotel is located one block from the beach-- an easy walk. Wish the hotel had more portable beach chairs available. A few days there was just one available. Friendly staff.

"Night before Cruise"
Nice clean hotel near the beach. Great location - close to everything: beach, restaurants. But it's not for staying before cruise: limited storage space, not willing to keep your storage longer, charges for the bus to the port for two was $30 (when on the way back we took a taxi to same location - the cost was only $10). Otherwise it's nice clean small motel/hotel when you might not see your neighbors but definitely hear them talking next room to you. The charges per night was too high from our point of view.

"Ask questions if offered a shuttle"
My only complaint is that when we checked in, the very nice desk clerk asked about when we would be leaving and arranged a shuttle for us. The only problem was that he never mentioned any cost for it. When we got to the airport, we found out it was $30. A taxi would have been cheaper! The hotel was really nice and the staff was very friendly. We arrived around 10am and were able to check in shortly after our arrival. That was a nice surprise!

"quiet neighborhood; really big room for the family"
I really liked the large room for our family of 4. The hotel was in a quiet neighborhood and yet still close to everything. You felt like family with the staff. It felt more personable. For example: we were tired and wanted to just order in pizza. The lady at the front desk did it all for us! Those small gestures made us fall in love with this quaint, boutique hotel.

"Great stopping point for cruisers"
My new wife and I spent two nights at Aqua before heading out on our cruise. We loved the boutique hotel vibe. It felt more like an apartment than a hotel room, and that is definitely a positive. We weren't looking for a high rise hotel experience. With the beach so close, we didn't get a chance to use the hotel swimming pool, but it was well kept. Access to the amenities of their other hotels was also included, but again, we were too busy enjoying the beach and shopping to take advantage. We did have an issue with the hair dryer, but the staff took care of it quickly and we were very happy with the service.

"By the beach on a budget"
One bedroom suite is cozy--sofa sleeper is in combined space with kitchen, and only one TV for the suite. There were sugar ants around kitchen stove/windows with no blinds in windows except the bathroom, limiting natural light in trade for privacy. The property is cozy with pools--there are two on the property--filling up fast in the a.m. through the evening. The location is within blocks of the beach, W Hotel, Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach Resort and AIA strip. Parking is only $10 per night--depending on the length of stay a car may not be required. Housekeeping only changes linens at specific intervals? Supply of towels, beach chairs/umbrellas/etc. is unlimited. There are two gas grills so you can eat-in better than going out...if your a good cook. I would recommend giving this place a try for any future trips.

"A Small Treat"
Aqua is one of a number of similar properties own by NBR. We had come down to spend some time checking renovations to an apartment we own in the area. NBR has bought up many of the smaller hotels in the neighborhood that were built in the 1950's and 60's. Gutting and completely updating them but keepping the retro vibe has gone a long way to upgrading not just these properties but the whole community. By today's standards the rooms are large for the price, clean, nicely decorated. Staff are friendly and helpful. An added plus we were unaware of when we decided to stay with them was the right to use facilities at any of the more than 20 properties they own in the immediate area. A warning they cater to a diverse group of markets, including the LBGT communities at their various properties so you do need to be comfortable with that diversity. Everyone we met and spoke with was friendly a there is a very good vibe.

Needed an overnight stay in the heart of Ft. Lauderdale Beach and this place was great, especially for the price. The "big" hotels within walking distance cost 2x as much, so this was perfect. Maggie, the property manager, was fantastic - and even helped get our room available early as we had an event to attend during check-in time. I would highly recommend this hotel and will certainly consider again on future trips.

This is not a high end hotel—but it was clean and well designed, and the check-in guy (name was actually Guy) was very nice and helpful. Steps away you'll find the Hilton and other beachfront places that charge 2-3 times as much. Stay here and go frequent their bars and restaurants. More scratch for fun!
