We stayed here for one night before a cruise on Oasis of the Seas. The shuttle from the airport was quick. As in any Hampton Inn I've ever stayed in the rooms are nice, and the beds are some of the best in this category hotel! When on trips I usually aim for the Hampton Inn's just because I know the mattress will be like heaven.
The little breakfast is just what you are expecting from a Hampton, ok but not awesome. Hey, its a free breakfast come on! Plus, since we were going on a cruise, all we had was some OJ and a light snack anyway.
The shuttle to the cruise terminal is PHENOMENAL! All you do is sign up at the front desk, they run the shuttle basically all day, and they let you sign up for specific times. This really alleviates crowding and people trying to force their way into the vans. When we stayed they had two vans running, and they just came into the lobby and would say "10 am shuttle" and check people off the list as they got in line. The driver we had was funny, and knew a ton about the cruise ships and the port.
There is not much around this hotel to see during the daytime, so if you get in early the day before the cruise, I would suggest taking a cab or shuttle company to downtown or one of the beautiful beaches. Not very expensive to do, and walking along the canal downtown with all the yachts moored is pretty cool.
We would definitely stay here again if we take another cruise from FLL.
