“Nice but Breakfast staff a pain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

We used this hotel as a lay-over for a cruise out of Miami. Very friendly front-desk staff on our check-in and the free bottles of cold water were a nice surprise. The hotel was clean, and the room met our expectations. Comfortable beds and nice washrooms.

The only issue we had were the less than friendly staff at the breakfast buffet in the morning. I had to ask the one female worker (morning of the 10th October) to move out of the way on several occasions as she was just standing there watching the TV news at the food area. People were trying to get in and around her but she's just stand there doing nothing. When a manager was present in the area she'd wipe a counter or move some items but then went back to doing nothing. Too bad for an staff who was fantastic up until then.

The hotel is close to some great shops and an Italian restaurant (Sal's) which was great.

Would we go back or recommend to others - Yes.

This very affordable hotel is the perfect pre-cruise facility. Free shuttles to/from airport and port. Free wi-fi and free breakfast, too. I believe you can leave your car there while on the cruise, too. Rooms were very nice. Clean and comfortable. Ask for the quiet side of the building. Our one very minor complaint was that the hot tub is not heated...it's freezing cold. The staff is helpful and friendly. Lots of places to eat nearby. There's a great diner in the shopping center across the street.

Room Tip: We were in room 302, quiet, clean, with easy access to the parking lot.

Dear Guest,

Thank you so much for your review of our hotel. I'm delighted you enjoyed the staff and facilities and I hope our service exceeded your expectations. Please accept my apology for the issue you encountered with our hot tub. Our hot tub heater malfunctioned during your stay. We have resolved the issue with the heater and the hot tub is fully functioning now.

Perhaps you'll consider staying with us again on your next visit to the area.

Thanks again,

We were in town over the weekend for a family funeral and booked this hotel to be close to FLL for the early a.m. arrivals of two of our children into FLL. We wanted a "suite" hotel so that our daughter, on the red eye from SFO, could get to the hotel, and go right to bed without disturbing us. The room was fine, maybe a little small for a suite, but...the service was OUTSTANDING. The shift supervisor, Cindy, was a delight! When we first arrived, she welcomed us, gave us our choice of floors, and asked us how many bottles of water we needed. When we came back again later that night, and asked for a corkscrew to open a recently purchased bottle of wine, she offered us wine glasses (so much nicer than drinking cabernet from plastic cups!). At breakfast, there was a woman who walked around, ensuring everyone had what they needed, and kept asking if she could get us anything. Another woman walked around offering freshly baked muffins. They both came around offering to fill my coffee cup. I have never had such outstanding service at a hotel in this category - and believe me, I spend a total of more than 20 nights a year in similar hotels across the country. Marriott should be very proud of their staff here.

This was our first stay at the Springhill Suites, Ft. Lauderdale Airport, and it was most impressionable. The staff were very welcoming and hospitable. They made us feel right at home and ensured that we were settled in minimal time. The hotel lobby was clean and the ambiance was attractive and appealing to the eye. The rooms were accommodating and comfortable too. The hotel's amenities were quite good and resourceful. The complimentary Wi-Fi internet service made it easy for us to stay connected to family and friends while we were on vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed the delightful breakfasts provided for us each morning and the complimentary water. Our stay at the Springhill Suites was one of the most memorable ever!

We stayed here prior to a Saturday cruise departure on Carnival Freedom. The hotel features a complimentary airport shuttle as well as complimentary cruise port shuttle. There is shopping mall within walking distance which is perfect for last minute items. The complimentary breakfast buffet was well stocked and offered a nice variety. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were on a higher floor and had no issues with noise. The pool looked very nice but we didn't have a chance to use it.
