“Fairfield Inn before your cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

A perfect place to stay the night before your dream cruise leaving from Ft Lauderdale.
The suite my sister and I stayed in was very comfortable,we had plenty of space and ammentiites.
Marriott provided transportation from the airport to the hotel at no extra charge. They even had comp transportation to nearby attractions and restaurants. The driver was very polite and helpful,he knew he dropped us off,we were not finished our meal before he went off duty and he came back for us so we would not be stranded. Very thoughtful and caring.
The hotel had Ace tour in the lobby who sold tickets for transportation to the cruise ships even offering round trip for when we got off the ship and needed to go to the airport.Very reasonable price for round trip
Highly recommend this Fairfield Marriott Hotel.

Room Tip: Suites offer 2 TV's and a place to read,computer watch TV without bothering others in room

Used points to book this hotel night before cruise.

Flew in arouind 9pm in FLL from Toronto and used the free airport shuttle. Took a while to get to the hotel as it circled the airport 2x to pick up passengers. A bit annoying but it's free.

Check in was friendly and swift.

Room was clean and well appointed. No real food service so we ordered in from the main menu available at the front desk. I'ts actually pretty good considering the take out place had 100+ items on the menu which typically is not a good sign, but no complaints from our little kids or us.

Breakfast was a bit of a gong show, as there is limited seating in the breakfast room so we gtook our food to our rooms. Normal assortment of dairly, bread and breakfast sandwiches. For free it can't be beat.

Staff was friendly, clean rooms, free shuttle, and you can call a cab to get to the cruise terminal which isn't far away, overall a good pick!

we always stay at Marriotts & picked this due to proximity to cruise ship port. We were able to get into our room early, the staff was extremely helpful. They offer a free shuttle service to nearby shopping & restaurants, which was great since we were without a car. There is a separate company in the lobby that offers reliable & inexpensive shuttle service to the airport & cruise ship port. rooms were amble & free breakfast was extensive. nice outdoor pool, fitness center lacking. overall i'd definitely recommend this hotel.

I loved this hotel. The hotel is clean, well appointed, and close to the airport. More importantly, the staff here were exceptionally helpful. The hotel operates a free shuttle not only between the airport and the hotel, but also to nearby restaurants. Simply stop by the front desk and request that the shuttle take you to one of about a half dozen restaurants in the area (I highly recommended the Rustic Inn). I would absolutely stay here again, and recommend it to anyone who needs a hotel room near the airport.

Room Tip: When I arrived, I was upgraded to a suite, with the hotel's compliments. The suites are very ni...

I am a big fan of Marriott. I chose this hotel for my pre-cruise stay and I am glad I did. Upon check in the staff was extremly friendly and helpful. I arrived in Florida at approx. 1030 am and my room was ready. The lobby has free coffee all day long. We became hungary and were told about a nice fish place that was approx. a 5 minute walk. The food was awsome! I enjoyed my Friday (11-02-12) afternoon outside by the pool and used the spa. Both of them were very clean and refreshing. I really wish I could have stayed at this hotel after my cruise but due to the shuttle not operating at 0500 hours I chose a different hotel. BIG MISTATKE!!!! If you are looking for a pre/post cruise hotel this is the place. Do not stay at the Sheraton cruise port/airport. They are NOT friendly.

As avid Marriott fans, we always choose Marriott properties when given the opportunity due to the consistant level of quality the hotels maintain company wide. This property delivered on all accounts.
Close to the airport and cruise piers, the hotel offers shuttle service to both as well as complimentary parking for 7 days.
The rooms are spacious, modern and spotless. Excellent large flat screen TV's , free Wi-Fi and complimentary internet service are some of the amenities offered. A complimentary continental buffet breakfast was also included in the rate.
No restaurants were in walking distance, but since we had a car and are familier with Ft. Lauderdale, we set out to PF Changs at the Galleria Mall. The hotel provides shuttle service to several nearby restaurants.
A small pool in the back will satisfy out of towners in search of a swim.
All in all, a pleasant, but short, stay. Will definately cinsider using this property again.

We chose this property through ParkSleepFly.com initially because it included 30 days parking. As we were taking a 13- day cruise from Barcelona back to Ft. Lauderdale, this met our needs. Upon our check-in, the friendly staff confirmed our parking arrangements and gave us our keys. Across from the check-in desk is ACE tours who handle the transfer arrangements to/from Port Everglades. As we were flying out of Miami early the next morning, we noticed they also offered transfers to MIA. Our original plan was to go to Ft Lauderdale Airport and then catch a shuttle to MIA. Instead we opted for a shuttle directly to MIA from the Fairfield. This was only a bit more expensive but eliminated dragging our bags to two airports early in the morning. Our shuttle driver was prompt and friendly and we were in MIA in about 45 minutes! Upon our return to Port Everglades a quick call to the shuttle desk and we were transported right back to the Fairfield where our car was waiting for us.

This was an outstanding value for leaving a vehicle for an extended period, getting a good night's sleep, and having hassle free transportation. Can't recommend it enough for anyone traveling out of FLL or MIA or on a cruise ship!
