“A little bit of home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Really nice hotel. Close to the airport, free shuttle to and from. Shuttle to cruise port for $8 I believe. Nice King size bed, 2 TVs. Hotel has complimentary shuttle after 4pm to nearby restaurants. Would stay again if in the area.

Room Tip: Rustic Inn Restaurant within walking distance. Great crab/sw\eafood restaurant!

This is a great motel with what you expect from a Homewood Suites. Great breakfast, nice pool, nice business center and the staff was fantastic. The rooms are nice, clean and quiet. They have a nice free breakfast. The only down side is that there are not restaurants in the area to walk to.

Stayed here one night before our 11 night cruise. Booked through Hilton and received Honors Pts for their special park/stay/cruise offer. Included in the price was the free parking during the 11-night cruise. Enjoyed the free one-way shuttle to the Port. They have a small podium set up in the lobby where you can confirm your shuttle pick-up in the morning and pay $11 pp for the return pick-up They were very punctual for both the pre-cruise and post-cruise shuttles. We started our cruise on a Monday and returned on a Friday - shuttle trip took 15 minutes each way - no waiting for the shuttle and no major traffic problems or delays.
The hotel was great! Room was large, clean and very comfortable. I did my research and knew there were no restaurants in the immediate area - no problem because they have a shuttle service! They also have a great cook-to-order hot breakfast, in addition to all the buffet items we are all accustomed to at other hotels. The room had a wonderful kitchen,eating area, sofabed, king bed, TV and very nice bathroom - - what more could anyone want!! FYI: The shuttle also takes people to the Miami cruise port for an additional fee. Great news for people flying into Ft Lauderdale and cruising out of Miami! We will definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We received a room next to the elevator and were concerned about the noise Fortunately the rooms mu...

We found the Homewood Suites in Ft. Lauderdale to be very convienient when taking a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale. The rooms are nice, clean and quiet. They have a nice free breakfast. There are not restaurants in the area to walk to, but they have a free shuttle that will take you and pick you up from a list of restaurants. It worked well for us. We took the shuttle to the cruise port without any problems. We were at the cruise port within 20 minutes. We also took the bus to the airport. Very fast and convienient. The hotel was very busy with both cruise traffic and a big football game in the area (National Championship Game). They handled the crowd very well.

We had stayed at this establishment before and decided to do so once again before our latest cruise. Some comments before weren't as good as they could have been so here are my comments regarding "those" comments. The shuttle from airport to hotel: I called the hotel upon arriving and Angela at the desk called the driver to see where in the circuit he was....said 35-40 mins before he would arrive. Was approx. 45 but that is close to his comment. Upon arrival, we quickly got a room early in the day. Angela was servicing the desk. We were meeting fellow cruisers at the Islamorada Fish Company nearby and thought we could walk to it. Asked at the desk, they suggested a taxi instead. We did and glad we did. Coming back, we walked to the Courtyard next to the restaurant where our buddies were staying and asked to get a taxi back. They were super....they allowed their shuttle driver to deliver us back to the Homewood Suites on his way back to the airport. Waited maybe 5 mins for the ride! Very courteous for them to offer that service knowing we were staying in another hotel. Our room was great and breakfast was typical for this type of hotel. Our shuttle to the port was timely and the driver was also courteous.

I stayed for two nights in December and was probably the only occupant not going on a cruise. It was pretty hectic from all the cruisers. I tried to get checked-in early but couldn't understandably. The front desk was pretty good about giving the option to leave my number to have them call me when a room was ready.
Went to get lunch and when I got back, I had a room and an upgrade to boot! Room was up to Homewood Suites standards - nice spacious, full kitchen and comfortable.
These things led me to rate this Homewood Suites average:
- My was not serviced after the first night (not a big deal but would be an issue for a longer stay as toiletries and towels needed replenishment)
- No dishwasher detergent (tried calling the front desk but cruise chaos had them busy and no answer)
- I was overbilled (the second night was a lower rate than the first but was charged 2 nights at the higher rate. It was resolved afterwards but a vacation shouldn't involve work.)
- The hot breakfast food was cold. No fruit salad like at other Homewood Suites.
I probably wouldn't stay here again on a weekend because the cruise chaos really degrades their ability to provide service up to part for Homewood Suites. Also, I would probably elect to stay farther away from the cruise terminal/airport as I am not in South Florida for a cruise.

This is a great hotel with what you expect from a Homewood Suites. Great breakfast, nice pool, nice business center and the staff was fantastic.

HOWEVER, as convenient as it may seem to have a shuttle from the hotel to the cruise port, avoid it at all cost. It took us 2 1/2 hours to traverse the 4.9 mile distance from the hotel to the cruise port. Traffic was not heavy at all as we left the hotel at 12:05 (scheduled pick up time was 11:45) on a Sunday afternoon. We dropped off travelers at five othe ships before arriving at our ship only to be told to go wait in a bus line by the sherrif's deputy directing traffic. After 2 passes we went to another ship to drop off the remaining passengers on the bus that weren't gong to the Emerald Princess. We then proceeded to wait another 45 minutes in a bus line. We could have saved about 2 hours for just a few more $$ by taking a taxi.
