A convenient hotel for Port Everglades and downtown. There is a free shuttle service from Ft Lauderdale Airport, but the hotel did not inform us that you have to call them to arrange pick-up. We presumed this service was operated like other hotels' shuttles, ie the buses come at regular intervals, but we found out this was not the case after giving up and getting a taxi. The rooms are a good size, clean and comfortable. However, restaurant service leaves a lot to be desired. Some of the waiters do not speak good enough English and we had problems getting our correct breakfast order in a reasonable amount of time. One big warning - make sure you check that your food bill correctly shows the tip you want to give. We signed for our breakfast to include a tip we considered adequate for the awful service we received. When we checked out of the hotel we found that the bill total differed from what we had signed for. The original chit was found and we discovered that the waiter had altered the amount of the tip to a larger amount after we had signed it. Dishonesty in staff not a good feature.
