Overview

The Pillars at New River Soundhotel was built in 1938 and was remodeled in 2001.

A peaceful hideaway in the Venice of America, The Pillars at New RiverSound is an eclectic mix of British colonial and island plantation styling with gourmet cuisine, tantalizing spa treatments, a lovely swimming pool and inviting views of the Intracoastal Waterway.

Nestled around a central landscaped courtyard with a pool, many of the rooms and suites have views of the waterway and French doors opening on to a balcony or patio. Enjoy a massage in your room and then wander down to the dock, where you can order a drink and watch the passing yachts.

Take the Water Bus from the hotel’s private stop for a shopping excursion or head to Fort Lauderdale beach. If you are feeling adventurous, try kayaking by moonlight around the isles of Las Olas and return to dine in The Secret Garden, an exclusive restaurant where dinner is served under the stars overlooking the water.

            It was nice and small.

            I found the staff to be snobby upon our arrival. The restaurant is nice, but very pretentious. The wine we ordered was oxidized. We had stayed at the Atlantic Hotel prior to our arrival at the Pillars and found the value to much better there.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The hotel is right by shopping and restaurants and the beach but the minute you step inside you feel like you are a million miles away in your own private luxury mini-resort. And dining by the water is amazing -- beautiful, well staffed, excellent food, unrushed -- just a perfect dining experience. The staff was lovely, the grounds beautifully tended. Overall it was a fabulous experience and we have every intention of returning again and again.

            The only things we would have changed were the lack of a.c. in the bathroom (a very hot blow drying experience!!!), the lack of any real surfaces on which to rest anything in the bathroom and our inability to adjust our own thermostat. Everything else was truly perfection. The next time we visit, I'm bringing a fan along!!

            helpful staff. welcome additional touches such as complimentary coffee in the morning, iced tea all day at the pool, complimentary newspaper at the door, and the water taxi stop at the private quay. the hotel is also close to the ocean.

            The friendly staff as well as the size. It is a small hotel that makes you feel like your the only guest.

            Great location and tasty cuisine

            My room was too small.

            If you are seeking a small oasis in Ft Lauderdale, then the Pillars is a perfect match. Great staff, impressive rooms, even though my last minute booking was not the room I would have preferred (twin beds) it was fine. The dining experience on the docks was great. Even though a block or so away Spring Break was in full gear, inside the courtyard it was a whole different world.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            looking beautiful, nice to live close to the water, nice outside, very nice yachtrip, easy parking, quiet

            need better fan at the bathrooms, too small bed for 2 people in one room

            Excellent service and good food. Pleasant rooms and a great location with easy free parking

            The towels in the room whilst of good quality were grey instead of white suggesting many or very poor washes. The room we had-116-was very small

          • Couple
            9.6

            Absolutely lovely boutique hotel, an oasis in the bustle of Fort Lauderdale. Close to the beach, right on the waterway, with its own water taxi stop. Fabulous food, beautiful surroundings.

            A bit expensive, and the food is charged at an extra $5 if you want to eat it by the water, which is a real cheek, considering it is only 20m away!We found that irritating...

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The staff was great and breakfast/dinner on the dock-side terrace was super. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. We'll keep going back.

            From the moment we arrived everyone was so lovely and helpful. The room was beautiful and bed was really comfortable. Although the room did not have tea /coffee maker there was complimentary coffee each morning in the reception area. Stunning location!!

            This is a superb boutique luxury hotel with great location on the stunning intra coastal waterway - but also close to beach and shopping/city centre. Has a very handy water taxi stop which takes you to all areas of Fort Lauderdale. We stayed 2 nights had dinner one night which was excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful without being "pushy" - there are lots of nice touches in the rooms and around the hotel. The pool area is lovely too for relaxing with lovely water views. We would definitely return and highly recommend.

            Charming pool and dock area. Great foliage. Tranquil and relaxing. Note: it's not a beach front hotel ~ which is perfect because it is only a five minute walk to the beach yet thehotelhas a serene and tranquil courtyard.it is the best of both worlds.

            Breakfast is overpriced.
