Best Gay Bargain in Ft. Lauderdale
I was looking for an inexpensive place in Ft. Lauderdale just a couple of weeks in advance at the height of tourist season. I figured I'd be creative and sign on to Ft. Lauderdale M4M, the AOL chat room. It was an excellent decision because, long story short, someone directed me to the web page of the manager of this hotel and I really couldn't have done better--I wound up paying $119 to $129 a night and the place is 1/2 block to Sebastian Beach. Last year, I stayed at the Flamingo for over $300 a night. It was great, but I had to get in my car to go to the beach and there's not much sun by the pool. I also really didn't miss the amenities there at all--Alhambra actually has most of them, if on a slightly scaled-down level. Chris, the manager, was also incredibly nice and attentative. All in all, I think that while this place doesn't want to be exclusively gay (which is just fine by me!), it's working very hard to get more of the gay demographic and it's doing an excellent job. Really, the best value I've found in a hotel in a very long time.
