Close to Everything!from A TripAdvisor Member
-25 min. drive from the airport
-5 min. walk to the beach
-water taxi stops directly in back of hotel
-patio area in back with "mini beach"
-nice heated pool
-across the street from a CVS, Wholefoods Market & a pretty good Chinese restaurant
-next to a nice mall that features, among other stores, Saks, Dillards and Neiman Marcus, etc., and one of the best food courts around
-rooms are a good size, beds are comfortable and each suite has a full kitchen, living/dining area
-rooms with balconies facing the waterway
-traffic noise from busy E. Sunrise
-noise from the drawbridge
-occasional loud party boats floating by
RECOMMENDATIONS: When staying there ask for a waterview balcony suite on a high floor as far away from the bridge as possible, otherwise, ask for a city view suite
Never had an enjoyable stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
So glad we chose this place!from gjp
Came to town from Cancun with the sole purpose to shop for clothing and the little things that we missed living outside of the US. The location was great for that, and after a 10 hour shopping binge, our suite was a wonderful place to come home to.
Thanks to the TA forum for some great tips, and thanks to the Doubletree for a great getaway!
room was nice but much noise from outside.from A TripAdvisor Member
Wonderful Propertyfrom Arielitoll
They helped us out with everything for our meeting. The bellboys were so helpful as well. The meeting rooms are very clean and nice but they will be renovated soon because the hotel is beginning its huge renovation project to turn half of the hotel into a CONDO development called Galleria Condo or some name like that. The top two floors are totally destroyed because of the current renovation to redo the rooms. The hallways of the hotel,currently, are nice but they are quite old. As well as the elevators. The pool,riverside yacht and bar are just awesome. If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable, stay....
I would highly reccomend the Doubletree Suites at the Galleria.
Great vacation, wonderful hotel.from SheriNewJersey
DOUBLETREE SUITES WAS GREAT!!from kruzlady
Had a very enjoyable stay. The room was spacious and clean,
chocolate chip cookies were delicious. Staff was friendly and helpful.
The only drawback would be if you have a room facing Sunrise Blvd.
Traffic going over the bridge may keep you awake at night.
Our room was facing the pool and noise was minimal.
Staff nice, hotel not so nicefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Good Hotel Getawayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is good, the outdoor patio, pool and jacuzzi very nice. The hotel has free amenities that you would pay for at other hotels. (aka free internet access)
Be aware that the hotel can be noisy on occasion as we are right next to a draw bridge and busy Sunrise Street, however, the upside is that you can check out all the amazing yachts that go by. Another plus is the Galleria Mall (Sacks, Burdines, etc., plus a good food court) and a movie theatre are adjacent to the hotel. This is great as on those rare occasions when it isn't beach weather, you can do some shopping or catch a movie. Starbucks is across the street, as well as a CVS and Wild Harvest natural food store. The watertaxi service docks right at the hotel.
The Doubletree Galleria also has a laundry room located on the third floor for guests. Gotto love that.
I would not hesitate to book a room in this hotel again.

Top Local Tips for Fort Lauderdale
bonefish grill - also the food court at the Galleria I would recommend the boenfish grill restaurant for dinner. They are open from 4 pm - so not open for lunch. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. We especially liked the crab cakes appetizer, and the chicken lily dinner (chicken breast with goat cheese and artichokes). They have good fish etc. If you have a car this restaurant is maybe ten minutes drive from the Gallery One hotel. There is also a food court at the Galleria next door to the hotel. They have lots of fresh food and healthy options, fruits, juice smoothies etc. They also have a turkey place where you can get a good turkey dinner, complete with stuffing, gravy etc for 8.95.
Water Taxi...only go during high tide and plan lots of time We rode the Water Taxi on a Sunday afternoon. First, don't ride this if you are in a hurry or have a schedule. They have a legal limit to the number of passengers they can take, so if they are full you will have to wait until the next taxi that has space. Our full taxi told people at a number of stops that they couldn't get on. Some people weren't very happy since they had been waiting for a long time. Second, only go during high tide. The day we went there was an extremely low tide so the sea wall was about chest high and people were literally being hoisted out of the taxi. Many of the older people had a really hard time getting out. Also, since it was full and it was low tide, our taxi hit something and we lost propulsion so we just floated while the crew tried to figure out what to do (including checking to see if we were taking on water). The narration about the yachts and mansions on the canals was interesting.
Water Taxis By far the best way to get around and see the sites in Fort Lauderdale. Only $11 for the whole day and they run form 10am to midnight
