Stayed here pre cruise. Free shuttle from FLL. Walgreens right down the block for the last minute items. Staff very friendly and helpful. Spacious, clean room. Will stay here again next time I need a pre cruise hotel in FLL. Wished there was a candy machine to grab a snack. Only had ice machines.

This was the perfect choice before getting on our cruise ship. Convenient location just steps away from the port. Shuttle service from the airport was fast. Check in was quick. (And yes, they thank you for being an IHG rewards member!) The room was comfortable and quiet. Well, somewhat quiet. Although I was given a "late check out," the housekeeper... More

This entire area smells of raw sewage. Not the hotel's fault I don't think, but EVERYTHING smells like toilet nonetheless. Desk staff very friendly and quick. The smell is hard to brush off. Everything else is good.

Great location and nice hotel. Rooms are clean and nice size. Free breakfast is great. Good choice to stay before a cruise. There are fast food restaurants across the street and a Winn Dixie and Big Lots in case you have to pick up anything before the cruise. The neighborhood is a little shady but as long as you stay...

Stayed here while attending a conference at the convention center. It is an easy walk to the convention center, about 5-8 minutes. Plenty of places to eat nearby, but be careful crossing 17th St. It's 8 lanes of traffic and people drive fast on it. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The room was nice and clean. They have... More

This hotel is located close to the cruise terminals at Fort Lauderdale. It is well located opposite a shopping centre, with a variety of food outlets nearby. The Hotel is modern, with well equipped rooms, which are roomy and comfortable. Sleep quality was good.

We flew in a day prior to our cruise and staff picked us up from the airport at no charge, within 15 minutes of our arrival. Our room was comfortable and included a microwave, refrigerator and good cold A/C! Bed was very comfortable and the linens were first class. A good hot breakfast was waiting on us the next morning.... More

After spending countless hours on the internet looking for a nice, reasonably priced, place to stay a couple of days in Fort Lauderdale, after a cruise, I settled for this Holliday Inn, given the good reviews online. I was not disappointed. The location is amazing, with countless restaurants and stores within walking distance, including a Walgreens. Very close to airport... More

Super close to port everglades, super staff, super modern and clean rooms, typical Express breakfast. STAY HERE....a couple of things you should know: Airport shuttle: Although the airport has a area for the hotels to pick up guests, you must call the hotel for the shuttle to pick you up. This is just so they have room in the van!... More
