4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

If on business this hotel is conveniently located off the Expressway with easy on and off access. Close to services if needed. Breakfast is available for a charge unless included in your stay. Parking is tight for late arrivals. Staff helpful. Accommodation good with very clean rooms and common areas.

I've stayed here a couple times before a cruise. This 3 1/2 star property is ideal for people that arrive later in the day and for those that are going on a cruise the next day. It's only about 15 minutes by cab from the airport and cruise port. There is a complimentary airport shuttle as well. Rooms are a good size and beds are comfortable. There is a restaurant on the main floor which is open until 10:00 PM. There are also a few fast food restaurants within a 5-minute walk, as well as a small shopping plaza, should you need to pick up anything prior to your cruise.

The staff were excellent. Every accommodation was made to make us feel welcome. The room was clean, but a bit out dated. The A/C unit was very loud. We had to wear ear plugs to sleep. The pool was clean and well kept.

Really nice place to stay,the hotel is in a great location if you are flying in or out of FT LAUDERDALE.I was very greatful for the comfortable chair to sit in since I have health issues with my hips.The room was huge,and clean.The only gripe I could possibly make was the fridge was not closed properly causing water to leak under the unit,when my wife cleaned up the water it was moldy,guest services promptly replaced and removed moldy towels.Shuttle driver was excellent at his job.The grounds and pool were well kept and pleasing to the eye.Front desk service was very friendly and accomidating.Would stay again for sure.Also the breakfast chef made me a superb omlette,I wish I would have gotten his name.

Room Tip: Overlooking the pool was very nice.

We have stayed here many times before but always return when in the area due to the fantastic staff that always make you most welcome, Front office staff led by Terence are the best. In the evening, always a warm greeting from Tom. Fatima in the restaurant always remembers what you want. Its really a home away from home. Always pleasant to return

Room Tip: Hotel is very close to excellent shopping. Also good if you are overnighting to or from a cruise.

Very nice hotel - convenient to the port. Parked the car at the hotel and used the van shuttle to the port. Trip to the port was great, but return was not so good - mostly because of misdirection (multiple) at the port for getting back to the shuttle.

The air conditioner leaked water all over the carpet. Informed the front desk - they said they informed the engineer. Needless to say, nothing was fixed and water was not shopvac'd up. When told about it the next day, they said we didn't tell them. Lobby smelled musty. Pool deck area was dirty. I've stayed at cheaper hotels that were much cleaner and nicer. Then to top it off, they billed another person's room to my credit card and have the nerve to ask me to contact the other person (? seriously) to call them and give them the correct credit card to pay - this is 3 weeks after our stay when the charge showed up on my credit card. NEVER, NEVER, NEVER AGAIN! I've been a loyal Hilton customer for years - definitely switching to Marriott!

Room Tip: The only decent thing about this hotel is the lobby restaurant.
