We arrived at 3:00 am on December 27th due to weather delay. We just wanted to get to sleep before catching our boat the next day. As we were checking in we informed the front desk that the Emerald Princess would not begin boarding people until 2:00 pm at the earliest due to a Norovirus Outbreak. What did the hotel do about this you ask? They let us stay in our rooms until 1:00 pm with no added cost... UNHEARD OF and an extremely pleasant surprise after getting in at 3:00 am. We got a bit of sleep however were woken up the the manager organizing cruise patrons on other boats over the loud speaker .... might want to turn that down a bit in the courtyard... was still a bit sleepy but by no means was I complaining. After having our free "continental" breakfast which was NOT continental as they had a make your own waffle bar (with extremely helpful employees making sure I didn't burn the place down), fresh fruit, juices, cereal and the all important coffee we went back to our room put our bathing suits on a started our vacation on their pool deck. At 1:00pm we checked out and got on the FREE shuttle to the cruise port. It is not free after 10:30 am however they made an exception for the Emerald Princess Guests just another sign of this hotel bending over backyards for their customers.
I would just like to say the management, staff, facilities and the whole experience about staying at this hotel far exceeds their star rating on websites. I paid 70$ for 1 night here and it felt like I should have paid 130$.
Cudos to you Rodeway Inn Fort Lauderdale... I will be back.
