“Nice hotel.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

My husband, daughter, and I stayed here for one night on our last night in Florida. We were greeted warmly when we arrived to check in and presented with a bag of water and a granola bar as part of the priority rewards. The room was clean and away from the elevators as I had requested. The bathroom was clean and well stocked with toiletries including make-up remover which my 17 year old daughter enjoyed. The free breakfast was the usual for a free breakfast and satisfied our needs. It was a little expensive for what it is, but overall it was good for one night.

Room Tip: rooms on the back side are quieter as the front of the hotel faces a busy street.

We stayed here with another couple, the night before we got on a cruise. The hotel was clean. The pool is small. The breakfast was normal for a free breakfast. The front desk answered all of our questions and helped us find everything we needed.

One issue we had, was the shuttle that was supposed to pick us up. We waited nearly 2 hours and called the hotel multiple times. Eventually they had us take a cab, which they reimbursed us for, because they could not find us?! Weird and frustrating, but they took care of it.

I visited Fort Lauderdale for a few days and was vey impressed with the staff and stay. Everyone was so polite and helpful. Anything I needed or wanted was either given to me or somehow helped in one way or another. The breakfast Hostess, Michele, was always polite and smiling. The front desk and even the shuttle driver were so nice. My room was neat and clean. I definitely could say that this was one of my best stays ever.

Room Tip: Just make sure you know what area you will be staying. That was my only problem. It was not close to...

Stayed here the night before our cruise... Nice clean rooms and friendly service... Didn't like that it was a bit overpriced and the shuttle to the cruise port was 8 bucks a person, for the money your paying for the room it should be offered free or not at all... A 4 minute cab ride to the port cost my wife and I 7 bucks tip in.. The location was nice because of all the stores within walking distance...

I stayed two nights waiting to start our cruise but would have been happy to stay longer. The hotel rooms were very comfortable, the public areas inviting, and the restaurant very good. The lobby had several seating areas - from the fireplace to the covered patio and palm tree-shaded pool area. There was free coffee in the morning and water available all day. I did use the fitness area which was well-equipped and clean. We had several meals in the restaurant -- the staff was accomodating and the food was well-prepared. Definitely one of my best hotel experiences.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool - very serene.

Rooms are spacious and clean. The king size bed is very comfortable and the room contains all of the amenities you would expect (microwave, fridge etc).
Buffet breakfast with scrambled eggs, biscuits, bagels etc is available in the dining area. There is also a small "fitness room" on the 1st floor.
No bar or restaurant, but there is a strip mall across the street with several places to eat, a liquor store, a bar, a grocery store and a Big Lots for last minute supplies.
I don't think that I would stay here for vacation, but it is good for a layover or a couple of days for business

Stayed here on arrival and before departing Ft. Lauderdale with my family in tow. As far as an HIE goes, this was very new looking and clean. Breakfast was well stocked, beds were very comfortable and the flat screen HD TV was a nice bonus.

Only complaint is the airport shuttle is shared with other hotels in the area and only comes once an hour. Had to wait over 45 minutes at the airport late at night with pregnant wife and tired kids (I had been told it would only be a 20-minute wait). Next time I would have just paid for a taxi.

Both nights I was recognized as a Priority Club member but only got a gift bag on the first stay.
