Great location but that's it

We stayed at this hotel for one night before leaving on a cruise. The location of this hotel is fantastic. Right on Las Olas, in the middle of all the shops and restaurants, and just two blocks away from the water taxi stop. We stayed in the new tower on the 10th floor. The room was large and very clean. The beds, however, were not comfortable at all. I was very happy to only be spending one night there (didn't get almost any sleep). While we were in the lobby, we overheard a rather frantic guest informing the front desk that their air conditioner was on fire (they were on the 4th floor, which I believe, is the older wing). The hotel is way overpriced for the quality. However, since it's the only hotel in the area, they are clearly able to get away those prices.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

The shops of Las Olas Blvd are right outside your front door. This is the only advantage in staying at this hotel.
