This hotel has refurbished rooms that were new, stylish and comfortable. The staff also seemed nice enough though we didn't have too much interaction with them. The downsides were the airport to hotel shuttle and the noise factor in the hotel. As for the shuttle, we arrived on a Friday night for a cruise departing Saturday. With Port Everglades being...

It was pretty clean. The area wasn't the best. But the prices were worth it. It was close to our cruise. So we paid about 15 dollars in a cab to get there. Also holiday picks you up from the airport. They will take you to your cruise line (we preferred cab).

The hotel was very nice to me. It was clean, and had all of the amenities you would expect from this brand. What I was not prepared for was all of the great staff that worked there. Sometimes you get one or two good folks working at a place, but this hotel hit the jackpot. It seemed like everyone was... More

We stayed here prior to a cruise. The location is very close to the cruise port and the causeway, as well as close to stores. The building itself is older, with darker decor. Rooms were comfortable though, nothing special. The hallways were hot. We did the cruise parking with them. What I didn't realize is that they don't have their... More

Like many other travelers, we stayed in this Holiday Inn Express for one night prior to a cruise. It was a good choice. We didn’t wait long at all for the hotel shuttle to pick us up at the airport. The property was typical Holiday Inn Express, and though completely full was very clean and quiet. We had absolutely no... More

We stayed there 3 days before our cruise while exploring Fort Lauderdale and Miami areas. We also stayed right after the cruise to avoid airport rush on Sunday. Clean, fresh and friendly. When I forgot my wallet at front desk they called me right away :o) ! Love the location...very close to airport, port and Fort Lauderdale beach.
