  1. They are usually bad inland, not on the beach areas. Now the sargassum is another story this May. It was horrible on the beach this week. I hope it isn't another summer of the seaweed on the East Coast and Red Tide on the West. Last year was a bad year for our beaches.
  2. Yes both but I love the Ritz-Carlton because after your services, you can use the pool deck as a guest. The pool deck is amazing! As far as services, they are both great and comparatively priced. I go to Tipsy Salon (full bar) on Las Olas for my gel mani and pedicure. They are reasonable and good. Plus the mimosas don't suck.
  3. The two that come to mind are The Red Door at the Galleria and the Spa at The Ritz Carlton.
  4. Colada House is good but is is a bakery and they do close early. Except for Havana 1957 in Pembroke Pines, the two I really like Las Colinas and Nuevos Cubanos also close early but are full service restaurants. I personally think Havana 1957 is worth ubering to. Las Vegas which is closer is open until later also.
  5. As a rule, it is a good idea to skip all Ramada Inns in South Florida. They are pretty dismal.
  6. The Chilis has closed in Terminal 1 and a Rocco's Tacos will be opening soon! This is great news if you like fresh guac, tequila, and tacos! There are currently Rocco's Tacos in Brooklyn, Tampa, Naples, Orlando, Las Olas, Delray, Boca Raton, Palm Beach Gardens, and West Palm Beach. www.RoccosTacos.com
  7. I would think you may have a hard time in the Port Everglades area at the hotels because all the yachties exiting jobs all get dumped off in the 15th Street area.
  8. Just a heads up that people eat LATE in South Florida and many restaurants serve until midnight on the weekends and later. We use all the delivery services and have never had a problem. Just ask the front desk at the hotel which one they use. They may even have coupons.
  9. I just looked on Hotwire and the hotels are cheap for your dates. The Riverside on Las Olas is $81 a night, the oceanfront Sonesta was $121. I would keep looking.
  10. $167 seems very high for an airport Hampton Inn in off season. I'd bet you can get a nicer hotel on 17th Street for the same amount the end of June. That's not a great rate for June. I'd watch rates and bet you can get something at that hotel closer in more in the $129 range.
  11. Considering Federal Regulations require a ten year environmental plan for any expansion, I'd be surprised to see it in 15 years. Fantastic news and I hope they pull it off in the time frame!
  12. Ugh, don't hang out at the airport, get a day room and relax by pool.
  13. Wait time to check in to your hotel? If the room is ready, go check in. If you want breakfast, go to the beach and have breakfast at Bo's On The Beach. They started serving breakfast a couple of weeks ago. If you are flying in the day of, get a day room with a 1PM check out, then go board.
  14. I would go to Ybor City and have a nice long lunch at Colombia.
  15. This is so great! They've needed to do this for some time instead of the rental car companies fleecing our guests. However, I don't have too much faith in them not to screw it up. I've been trying to straighten out a transponder problem for sever months now.
