| The GLBT Resort that feels like home
If you talk to guests at Dania Beach’s Liberty Suites, it won’t take long before you sense a theme – Liberty Suites is a home away from home where guests from all over the world feel like family. For thirteen years, Joe Van Eron and Jack Zimmerman have nurtured that “Liberty Family” feel. It is working. More than sixty percent of their clientele are repeat customers.
“From the beginning, we always believed that there was a need in the burgeoning Fort Lauderdale GLBT market for affordably priced superior accommodations geared to longer term stays, with beautifully furnished and full equipped apartments with full kitchens and all the conveniences of home,” said Joe. “We have continued to draw the most wonderful group of upscale, sophisticated, intelligent and gracious guests which makes what we do so worthwhile….and to observe our guests enjoy each other’s company as well as their accommodations.”
The home-away-from-home atmosphere is no accident. “From our past years in the Special Events and Hospitality business, we have found that most of our guests appreciate the comfort and conveniences of home, while feeling very special and always welcome back home…where we provide a welcoming, relaxing safe haven for guests from around the world,” Joe explains. “In addition, as the first and only exclusive extended stay resort hotel in Greater Fort Lauderdale, we have captured the Gay relocation market where a Gay single or couple can stay while transitioning to their new home and lives in South Florida. At Liberty Suites, many of them meet their first friends and we try our best to make that transition as enjoyable and effortless as possible. Today, there are literally hundreds of satisfied former guests that are now our neighbors, and continue the best resource for spreading the Liberty Suites story and experience.” Van Enron was a very successful Event Planner in New York who was a favorite of high profile entertainment and political figures.
Liberty Suites is located in Dania Beach between Ft. Lauderdale and Miami. “Our guests love our location in Historic Dania Beach, which is Broward’s first city, with its’ small town charm and Gay Friendly warmth, and well known for its Antiques, Art and Design businesses,” Joe continues. “We are very proud to have been an integral part of the redevelopment and gentrification of both the city and our neighborhood. Liberty Suites is the closest gay accommodation to the famous nude beach at Haulover and the gay beach at John U. Lloyd State Park at Dania Beach. We are convenient to all gay Fort Lauderdale bars, clubs, and restaurants in Wilton Manors, beaches & cultural attractions, and South Beach is just a short thirty minute drive. Our prime central location places us just five minutes south of the Fort Lauderdale Airport and Port Everglades in a quiet residential Gayborhood, and within walking distance to the everyday conveniences, shops and restaurants. Within a fifteen minute drive in any direction from Liberty Suites is almost everything that today’s Gay traveler wants to experience in Greater Fort Lauderdale and South Florida, including six new casinos with clots, table games, sports wagering and poker.”
The award-winning Liberty Suites has eighteen beautifully furnished and fully equipped studios, one and two bedroom apartments with full kitchens at “affordable daily, weekly and extended stay rates.” Amenities include free wi-fi internet, free VOIP telephone, a clothing optional, heated swimming pool, sundecks, a gazebo, private off-street parking, and on-site laundry. Pets are welcome.
