Fort Lauderdale's Schubert Resort is a classic and retro gay guesthouse that has attracted the discriminating gay traveler to this city for many years, and for good reason. With the hotel's classically tropical landscaping and lush setting, guests can soak up the sun poolside or sit in the ten-person hot tub and enjoy this fabulous vacation getaway.
Located near the many gay bars, restaurants and boutiques of Wilton Manors and just blocks from Fort Lauderdale Beach, the Schubert Resort is the ideal guesthouse to call home, even for a few days. This comfortable and elegant property sits on the border of the leafy Victoria Park neighborhood and allows visitors the convenience of a quick walk to the famous Galleria for shopping. It's also just steps from several great restaurants and the historic and famous Gateway Theatre.
The Schubert has a grand history of its own. On this site was Fort Lauderdale's first tourist attraction: The Clyde Beatty Jungle Zoo. It was also here in 1948 that MGM produced a feature called Cat College. More recently, several movies have been filmed here, including Ali (starring Will Smith) in 2001 and the sequel to Another Gay Movie, which is soon to be released. Many famous names have shown up at the Schubert Resort over the years, giving it a history that can be so easily appreciated.
This award-winning resort welcomes guests with every creature comfort and world-class service. Every room is suited with king or standard beds, premium Sealy-posturpedic mattresses, elegant Terrazzo floors, beautiful marble baths and comfortable, premium sheets and pillow cases, as well as a kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker and a sink in king suites. These rooms also featured relaxing sofas.
