The intimate Drift Hotel has only 23 rooms, giving guests individualized service. Tucked into a private enclave near Fort Lauderdale’s famed Las Olas Boulevard, the boutique hotel is set away from the noise and traffic while still only one block from the beach and a short stroll from shops and nightlife.

Choose a Deluxe Room with a queen bed, or spread out in a suite with a king bed. All rooms are nonsmoking. Both options include private patios, Wi-Fi, continental breakfast and parking. Guests have free use of sun loungers and beach towels.

Located just 15 minutes form Port Everglades, South Florida’s busiest cruise port, the hotel is a great option before and after hitting the high seas.

Filthy rooms. Filthy shower. Wonderful older man at check in - the younger man in my he morning didn’t care a hoot that i said the shower was very dirty 😖 Honestly. The health department needs to know. Mold smell dirty courtyard. Just too bad for words.

Stayed two nights a week apart. Both stays, the rooms smelled like they just sprayed room with insect repellent. First room was old and tiny. Second room was upgraded.

Hotel itself is nice, not a typical hotel, more like a AirB&B type experience - it’s old and rooms are OK- it’s the Staff & their attitudes that make the experience very enjoyable, Isreal & Avellino are friendly, hard working guys who welcome you warmly when you arrive & are genuine in wanting to make your stay pleasurable. Well Done! 1/2 block from public beach right smack in the middle of Fort Lauderdale Strip - the block it self is in transition with almost every other building being razed for a future mega hotel/condo. When most other chain hotels cost much more along with all the hidden charges & outrageous parking rates its places like the Drift Hotel with its free onsite parking and it’s roll out of bed into the street to the beach location and old Florida charm & hospitality that make this a very good place to stay
