First - be sure to check the address on your reservation. There are two Holiday Inn Express cruise hotels. This is a nice clean hotel. It looked like the lobby and our room had been recently redone. There is a lot of shops and restaurants nearby. We enjoyed Duffy's sports bar. Go left our of the hotel and turn left... More

This hotel was selected because it was not too far from the cruise line facilities. The hotel is an old property, however the staff has done a good job in keeping the place presentable. Some of the furnishings need to be updated. The bed was comfortable and the room, including the bathroom clean. The continental breakfast was very good. There... More

Nice pre cruise stay. Directly next to airport and port Everglades cruise terminal. We had a bit of trouble getting a shuttle ride to hotel from the airport, with 6 other cruise ships leaving the next day they were very busy. After waiting 1 hour we took a taxi and HIE comped the taxi fare. We had a problem, they... More

We chose this hotel due to the free aiport shuttle and from reading reviews about being close to the sun trolley as we wanted to go to the beach area also. We were not disappointed. Room very nice and clean and the bed and pillows were comfy. Both shuttle drivers (12/10 10:30 am and 12/11 8 am) were both very... More

the hotel was clean and the breakfast was very good. They had a nice variety (pancakes, waffles, sausage, bacon). Staff very friendly. Only complaint when leaving we had to wait a long time to get a cart to bring our luggage to first floor.

This hotel is just perfect for a pre-cruise. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and shopping for last minute items. The room was very clean and comfy. If you have a Budget car rental, their Cruise Terminal Car Return is just across the street, so you can return your car and take their free shuttle to the ship.... More

The airport shuttle driver was very nice and was letting us know good places to eat at later and where we can take the public bus or trolley if we wanted to check out the beach. She also takes care of the breakfast in the mornings. We arrived in town early, but was able to leave our bags with them... More

In Fort Lauderdale, there is a Holiday Inn Express Inn (HIE) & Suites Airport/Cruise and a Holiday Inn Express Cruise-Airport as well as at least two other ones of the same brand. I found out the hard way that there is a huge gap in service between the first two. When my wife, who is mobility impaired, and I arrived... More
