“Another great stay at Springhill Suites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This is the second time we have stayed at Springhill Suites near the Ft. Lauderdale Airport in Dania Beach, FL. We had enjoyed our stay last July prior to our first cruise on Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas and knew that they offered everything we needed. Instead of flying to Florida this year, we decided to drive and made arrangements with the reservationist at Springhill Suites to leave our car parked at the hotel during our cruise on the Oasis of the Seas this year. The cost for this additional service was minimal and certainly less than what it cost to park at the port. It was also much more convenient since the hotel offers an excellent shuttle service to Port Everglades as well as runs to the airport.

Springhill Suites in Dania Beach is conveniently located near Interstate 95 and sits in a beautiful setting among large live oak trees. The exterior of the facility is very pleasant and adds to your relaxation. The large trees and well kept grounds also offers guest with opportunities to see and take pictures of large green iguana type lizzards. We discovered two large ones in the gardens surrounding the pool area and a small one climbing up the trunk on one of the large trees in front of the hotel.

The lobby area of the hotel is large and offers a lot of seating for guest to sit, relax and visit. The front desk staff are friendly and efficient in getting a guest checked in to their room quickly. They even provided us with bottled water when we checked in and had a delightful tray of fresh baked cookies on the front desk for guest to enjoy. There is a small convenience shop next to the front desk that offers snacks, ice cream, as well as toiletry items.

This is the second time that we have encountered a large family reunion that was scheduled in the hotel. Everyone from this group appeared to be having a great time but were very aware that other guests were there too and their activities and fun did not impede our ability to enjoy the hotel facilities along with them. I concluded that Springhill Suites must be doing something right in that they attract large groups like these family reunions when they do not have a convention center attached for their functions. The large lobby area provided them as well as other guest with a very comfortable atmosphere in which to enjoy a good time. It was very pleasant.

Again, the room was very clean with plenty of space. The large comfortable beds offered a great night sleep and we also enjoyed the sofa and TV in a separate section of the room. There was also a tv that you could watch from the bed as well. The room comes equiped with your usual hair dryer, iron and ironing board with a nice layout to the room that allows for one person to be getting ready to go out while someone else can bathe or dress in another section of the room. There is an additional alcove to the room where there is a small bar sink and refrigerator with a table and chair arrangement as well. Everything in the room is well planned and comfortable both for a one night stay or even longer.

The hotel also offers a very nice breakfast in the morning that included eggs, ham, sausage, belgium waffles that you make yourself as well as other bread and muffin items. There is a good choice of juices and hot coffee and tea. It was all delicious and everyone seemed to be enjoying their breakfast. There are lots of tables and seating at a bar area for guest to eat as well as overflow space throughout the large lobby. Food was replenished quickly and everyone found a comfortable place to sit and eat with reasonable ease.

There are several fast food type restaurants within walking distance of the hotel as well as a large strip mall across the street with several large stores. We drove across the street to explore the shopping center and found that the Big K-Mart had the several items we had forgotten to pack for our trip.

Whether you are looking for a nice hotel to stay just one night prior to a cruise out of Port Everglades or are looking for a place for a large group to get together, consider Springhill Suites at Dania Beach, FL. The staff are friendly and will see to it that your visit is both comfortable and enjoyable.

Room Tip: All the rooms are terrific. The King bed rooms also have a large sleep sofa and can accomodate four...

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review of our hotel. It's great to know that our guests think highly enough of the hotel and staff to keep coming back. I will admit, this is the first review I've seen in a while where the iguanas made such a positive impression; I'm glad you enjoyed them.

Please keep us in mind the next time you're in the area. We look forward to your return.

Sincerely,

Kevin McKay

We stayed 2 years ago at this same property, and they have consistently provided the same service: pick-up from the FLL airport within 15 minutes of calling; straightforward check-in (especially when we had to switch the credit cards); standard Springhill Suites breakfast including scrambled eggs, sausage, waffles, breads, cereals & fruits (get there early, however, for less crowds); and KSA (travel service located in the hotel)-organized shuttle service to the cruise port. Comfortable rooms with kitchenette, high shower-heads, and separate sink area were welcomed amenities. The door of the business center was not working when I needed to do some last minute work the night of our arrival, so the front desk graciously allowed me to use one of the extra computers in the office (behind the front desk) for about 30 minutes. Also a plus: a strip-center mall for last minute items, and restaurants (fast-food, diners, and larger chain sit-down's), all within walking distance.

I usually don't like 3 star hotels, but I stayed here for the price and the customer rating on Hotwire. It was decent. The staff was nice and friendly and they did serve a free breakfast. It was good for a one night stay for me, but I wouldn't vacation there.

We spent one night here last month. Location was good, but there is no sign out front that tells you the name, all you see is the sign from the hotel beside it. Check in was good the offer, water, cookies and dipped pretzles. We got our key headed to our room and my son turned the knob without a key and the door pops open. We call the front desk they stated maintenance was on the way, about 15 mins later they called and said they was bring us another key to another room because maintenance was at lunch. We had to move down 3 floors to our new room. In this room the remote didn't work, called front desk again and maintenance came, and left and came back with new remote said the one in our room wasn't the right remote. We had 2 double beds and sleeper sofa with 2 tvs, microwave and fridge. I expected the hotel room to be a little up to date/cleaner, but it seem to be a little run down. Breakfast was okay, eggs, ham, sausage patties, waffles, cereals, milk, juice, bagels, etc, seem to be plenty for all guest. If your looking for just a one night stay, this might be okay for you, the price wasn't too bad either.

Room Tip: close to Pompano Beach, shops across the street

We stayed at the hotel for four nights while in the area visiting family before going on a cruise. We stayed July 3 to July 7 in room 305. The room was clean, modern and well appointed. You can't beat the location to the airport or the cruise port, especially considering the hotel provides free shuttle transfers to guests. The transfer staff went out of their way to accommodate travelers and help them along, including those running late or nervous about plans.
When there was an issue with the AC unit, it was quickly taken care of and did not disrupt our stay. The staff even offered to move us, but it wasn't necessary.
The staff was incredibly helpful, answering questions and making sure we had everything we needed, including a stapler to secure our cruise luggage tags. The hotel's business center was fantastic as i was able to use the internet and print out travel documents at no cost.
The hotel provides a free continental breakfast, which was a busy place in the morning but had a good selection. The pool was great after a long day and was open late with plenty of chairs and tables around. There is a washer and dryer at the hotel that came in handy for ust. The small snack shop on the first floor sells detergent.
In all, I highly recommend the Springhill Suites, especially considering the rooms can accommodate six comfortably and gives more living space than a traditional hotel room. Prefect for families traveling together or looking for a few nights pre- or post- cruise.
The staff could not have been any more professional or nicer, including the busy front desk clerk on Saturday night who expertly managed all kinds of crazy requests with a smile and a joke. Thanks for a great stay!

I recently stayed at the SpringHill Suites in Detroit (airport) an it was absolutely fantastic! So when I needed a place to stay for one night prior to my going out on my cruise, I decided to stay at the Springhill Suites ft. Lauderdale.

It was certainly not what I expected. The staff as absolutely FANTASTIC, everyone from the shuttle driver to the top person at the hotel. They were overly accommodating, as well. However, the hotel itself needs a lot of updating and improvement. The rooms, while clean, were dark and outdated.

The good news was that it made me even more excited to go on the Oasis!

I asked someone at the hotel why they were so outdated and he says that most people stay there for only one night, so they have not made the investment.

The other bit of good news is that the location is fabulous... places to walk to, if you want to grab a quick bite. And places to walk to for easy shopping (Kmart, Marshalls, etc.).

One more thing....They advertise that they have free shuttle to/from the cruise port. But apparently it is only free to the port, but there is a $10 charge, from the port back to the hotel.

Room Tip: We had several rooms... I don't recall my room number, but hen I opened my window there was a HU...

Recently had a 2 night pre cruise stay at this hotel. Free shuttle to & from FLL Airport & cruise port. We were cruising out of Miami, so had to pay for a shutte that was recommended by the hotel. Friendly, helpful staff. Basic fast food within easy walking distance, as well as a shopping center. Comfortable room with 2 flat screen TVs. The pool looked like it needed cleaning. A nice breakfast included. Would stay there again for the price we booked through Priceline.
