A little history about the Ocean Manor: DID YOU KNOW?????

The Ocean Manor was the first hi-rise hotel on Ft. Lauderdale's famous Galt Ocean Mile. Some of you old timers might remember some of yesteryears famous people who frequented the hotel like Jackie Gleason, Frankie Fontaine, Robert Conrad, and Eric Clapton. And by the way, Johnnie Carson owned the penthouse and frequently entertained Frank Sinatra and the 'Rat Pack.' In recent years , sport celebrities like Dennis Rodman and Michael Irvin have been seen at the Ocean Manor. Ocean Manor is still the most famous hotel with its rich and very long history.

Make the historic Ocean Manor your vacation destination.

You just never know who you might meet here at the famous, and newly renovated, Ocean Manor.

I saw Dennis Rodman a few weeks ago at the Resort!!

About the Owner

I made this studio my home for many years and still use it when it's not rented.

I have three children and am grandmother to eight. Two of my children live in New York and one in Colorado. I attended Bayside HS in Queens, Queensborough in Bayside and Queens College-CUNY and graduated in 1974 after a leave of absence to have my first child. I worked at Queens College in the early 1990s in the Center for Labor and Urban Programs Research Analysis. (CLUPRA.) I dabbled in writing and proof-read different written media for many years and worked in various law offices throughout the years. I came to Florida in 1996 and have lived in Broward County since then.

Stayed at the Ocean Manor located on the Galt Ocean Mile stretch of Ft. Lauderdale. The area was safe and user friendly with lots of services within walking, gas, drugstore, restaurants. I am an avid runner and easily navigated around the immediate locale actually running the loop around the Galt Mile as many times as my legs allowed on any given day. Ocean Manor has valet parking ( additional parking charge paid at check in), laundry located in the basement (coin operated), chair and umbrella set ups on the beach (additional charge daily), plenty of poolside lounges, a Tiki Bar that has friendly service (even beach or poolside service), decent food, nice music, and seems to never close. One negative on the hotel was that the pool is truly heated and it was overly so during the week we stayed when temperatures soared to the high nineties most days. The unit was immaculate and clearly is meticulously maintained by the gracious owner (Ellen) who was responsive to any questions and easy to contact. The decor and amenities within are exactly as advertised and all you need to function during your vacation stay. Hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: I am glad that my guests' vacation was wonderful and that they enjoyed my place and found it to be so comfortable and clean.
I have not heard about the pool being too warm before, but it is definitely worth an explanation.
The pool is heated during the colder months of the year so the water was already warm when the temperatures soared so high, which are unusual for this time of year, and given that the sun shines directly on the pool, I can understand why the water felt so warm.
During this time of year, the pool is considerably warmer than the ocean, as the ocean is just starting to really warm up. What is great, is that the ocean is just steps away from the pool, so if the pool water feels a bit warm, the ocean, although warmer in the summer months than in the winter, will be cooler than the pool.
The pool heater is turned off when the summer weather temperatures stabilize.

From the Owner

I was looking for a place that was on the beach, had a pool, food shopping within walking distance, and wonderful local amenities within walking distance also. I wanted a place that I would be able to live in comfortably. The locale is great and the inside has been up-graded and redefined to be user friendly and very comfortable. You will find all the comforts of home while staying at my place, only you will be on the beach with great ocean views from your own 8th floor balcony and be able to partake in any special events the hotel has to offer!!

From the Owner

The apartment is a one-of-a-kind find. The studio has a full size, fully equipped kitchen with filtered ice/water, unlike any other studio or hotel room in the building. Private WIFI internet access is included free, as is free Netflix on my 42" Smart WIFI TV. My bathroom has a 6' Jacuzzi tub with champagne bubbles, extra jets and lights,. You won't find this anywhere else in a studio or larger unit in this building. The bathroom has a heat fan, exhaust fan and extra lighting. The king size bed has a NASA memory foam mattress by TempurPedic for an unbelievably comfortable and therapeutic sleep. There is a 42' WIFI Smart cable TV with free Netflix and more, plus a 15' regular cable TV. The décor in the apartment is very unique, from the color on the walls and ceiling tiles, to the many amenities in the studio to the sheer comfort and cleanliness it affords.
