Our (three couples) cruise ship was delayed so we had two additional nights to spend in Fort Lauderdale. One of the couples had been here a couple years earlier and so we called last minute and found that they had vacancies. We told them that we would be there in 30 minutes.
We were not disappointed. Staff was AWESOME!! Very helpful and knowledgable. As Tropical Storm Isaac was arriving, they even supplied us with pertinent information regarding how to handle the impending storm. Rooms were very clean. Only a couple complaints - no shampoo/conditioner, but they had some in the lobby (but we never made it down there). Also the "breakfast" is simple (fruit or breakfast bars or packaged muffins and coffee) in the lobby, but staff had to be reminded to refill the small baskets as they went fast.
We liked the location as we could easily walk to the grocery stores, restaurants, and other shopping. There was a microwave, full sized refrigeratore, cooktop, and a sink with plates/utensils/pans, etc. Laundry was onsite - ($2 to wash and $2 to dry).
Transportation to the cruiseport was included and the lady that drove us was so informative - she had been in hotel hospitality for 30+ years and it was obvious she loved her job! Again, the staff was GREAT and so friendly! Would stay here again.
