My room, a king bed standard on floor 4 was very spacious and clean. Bath products are from Bath and Body works in citrus fragrance. Mini fridge, no microwave, speedy internet. There is a large free parking area, and shopping and food places are nearby. Hotel is maybe 3 mile from Sawgrass outlet mall and 1 mile from Broward mall.

This stay was the second at HIE hotels during my family vacation and it is interesting to observe differences between the same brand hotel in different cities, the other experience at another city was much better. This HIE unfortunately offered a room bit older, the access door to second building was open during night (no need to use your key... More

If you are staying in Ft Lauderdale you are about 20 mins from anywhere, its a bit out of the way but parking is free and away from traffic.... More

We had a great stay. The breakfast was perfect. The room was cleaned every day. The attendants were courteous. Also, the location is good, near by shopping and easy access to Miami Beaches and Orlando.

The front desk staff, the breakfast staff and the room cleaning team were all VERY nice and good at their jobs. We were in room 317 which was VERY quite and had a decent view. My only complaints would be the pillows weren't comfortable and I REALLY HATE the white comforter used by most hotels. They are VERY HOT and... More

It was a cold welcome and a cold departure. I would not stay at a Holiday Inn Express after this. I find Hampton Inn a lot more appealing. The staff were icy and standoffish. The first room STANK of CIGARS even though this is a non smoking hotel. We were moved to a room next door when ideally I would... More

Every thing was perfect! Friendly staff, clean rooms, and affordable stay overall. The breakfast was not my favorite but other than that it was great. There wasn't a hot tub or spa but we were just staying over night.

I have choose this hotel mainly for the location near Sawgrass Mills. It was not a disappointment. It’s a quiet hotel, with a good breakfast and with comfortable rooms. The A/C could be less cool, especially in the hotel corridors. It was freezing. Didn’t tried the pool. Good parking lot with lots of parking spaces.
