I have to thank you so much for making our last trip to Ft. Lauderdale so hospitable.
We were booked at a hotel just down the street, and after finding the appalling conditions
in that hotel, you graciously booked us last minute at your property.
A mistake we will never make again.
We have stayed at Cheston House before and we will on all of our future trips to Ft. Lauderdale.
The property is exceptionally manicured and the rooms are always nicely furnished.
We found the manager and young man who assists in the office were both so friendly and fantastic to
us. We could not have been happier on our mini vacation. Yall saved our trip.

Thanks again to you all at Cheston House. We will definitely be seeing you again soon.
