FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, October 22, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- The Pillars Hotel
was named in the top three of Florida's hotels for the second year in a row by Conde Nast Traveler in the 2013 Readers' Choice Awards
with a score of 93.3 out of 100.
Since its opening in 2000 as a luxury boutique hotel, The Pillars has for many years been known as Fort Lauderdale's little secret. Hidden away along the Intracoastal Waterway on central Fort Lauderdale beach, The Pillars has attracted guests looking for an upscale, more intimate place to stay. It's fair to say that while the hotel remains little, it's no longer a secret.
According to owner Michael Landry, "It's three things. First, we know we can't stand still. We are always making improvements to the property. Returning guests like to see something different every time they come back. Second, we know that it's impossible to reach these levels without an outstanding professional team. They see the operation not only as a family of employees but rather as a family of employees and guests. Third, and it goes without question that our location on the Intracoastal Waterways of Fort Lauderdale is pretty special."
Collecting 1.3 million votes from nearly 80,000 readers, Conde Nast Traveler surveyed its largest population thus far for its 26th annual Readers' Choice Awards. Featured in the November 2013 issue, the annual Readers' Choice Awards is a compilation of readers' reviews of our world's cities, islands, hotels, resorts, cruise lines, and airlines throughout their travels this past year.
For years, The Pillars Hotel has prided itself on valuing guest experiences. With a significant number of repeat guests, the hotel continuously aims to surprise guests each time they return, in addition to creating notable first experiences that lend to new guests already speaking of their next visit. These experiences are reflected in valuable guest feedback. Guests continue to compliment the elegance and quaint attributes of the property, the genuine and versatile personal guest service, and the delicacy of the food across all channels.
The Pillars Hotel is a boutique property with 18 rooms and suites located in Fort Lauderdale and a member of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Since opening 13 years ago the hotel has earned a reputation for exceptional individual service and outstanding dining reminiscent of the finest European boutique inns.
