“Decent hotel, but not a great business stay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

This hotel is a different animal. Bright, pastel walls, sparse lobby and reception area, seems to cater to the vacation traveler who could care less for these amenities. The noise level isn't bad, and my room had a small fridge and microwave. Big plus for the long duration folks, since the restaurant can be a little pricey and there isn't much to eat within walking distance.

As with many hotels, this one really falls down on internet connection speed, although a descent cable selection and good sized LCD screens help you find something to do while you're waiting for your downloads. It has other good perks, like the free airport/cruise ship shuttle van.

The room motif is kind of like sparse, 60's re-retro with bright pastel concrete walls. Strange mix, but not terrible. Overall, this is an okay hotel. But I wouldn't pay too much. The internet was a deal breaker for me.

I had a group of 30 stay here with me before taking a cruise for my wedding. The hotel staff was amazing. We arrived at 11 am and they gave all of us early checkin. The pool and gym were clean and the food in the restaurant was very good. The rooms were all clean. Location was not the greatest but we knew that going in. You can walk to a pizza place around the corner, but other than that there is nothing to do besides the hotel amenities. They offer transportation for 4$ to las olas blvd. We had trouble in the morning with our outside transportation arriving to take us to the boat and the hotel staff spoke with our bus driver for us. When the bus didnt fit in the garage, they helped all of us get our luggage around the corner and onto the bus. Everyone enjoyed their stay here and would definately visit again.

Rooms were very modern looking and clean. Had a little packet on bed with some aroma-therapy to calm from long day, which was a nice touch. Bar/Resturant closed early for me but did get room service in a short amount of time. Parking was a bit confusing but at least it was indoors.

Room Tip: Make sure you get your directions and bearings of your room if you arrive late at night. And remembe...

We stayed here 1 night before sailing off to the Caribbean. Hotel is closely located to the cruise terminal. The hotel arranged for our transport to the cruise terminal & nothing was a bother. Breakfast was good & there were a few takeaway places nearby for those that just wanted a snack.

Nice hotel, staff was great, rooms were clean and comfortable. Will use this again prior to cruises at Ft Lauderdale. Close to Ft Lauderdale cruise port and close to all activities in Ft Lauderdale area. Will recommend to others.

We stayed at the Crown Plaza recently when we took a cruise from the Fort Lauderdale port. The hotel is really nice and close to the cruise port. However, I recommend that you do NOT use their associated All Star shuttle service to the cruise port - it is very expensive and inconvenient compared to a regular taxi. We arrived the night before the cruise and wanted to go into Fort Lauderdale for dinner so they called this shuttle service for us. On the way back we simply caught a cab - which was half the price and available when we walked out of the restaurant! Unfortunately they had already talked us into using this same shuttle service to take us to /from the cruise port. We had a long wait for the shuttle for both trips .It would have been quicker to catch a taxi at the port. Plus the shuttle drove another couple to the airport first before we were taken back to the hotel… a very annoying way to end a great cruise.

We stayed there one night before our cruise.
We arrived at the airport around 11:30 in the morning, called the shuttle and it was there within 10 minutes. Short ride to the hotel, then we checked in. They gave us our room right away. Ate lunch at the hotel's restaurant (used the free drinks coupon).
In the afternoon we walked to the Harbour Shops to buy wine and soda (10-15 minutes walk).
We ate dinner at the pizza place nearby.
The pool area was really nice.
The morning of our cruise we checked out, left our luggage at their locker room and walked again to the Harbour Shops where we took the Sun Trolley. We hung out at the beach until 1:30, came back to the hotel and took a cab to Port Everglades.
We would definitely come back, everything was great.
