We came in from a cruise and had to spend a night in Fort Lauderdale. The next day it was off to the airport for our flight back to Chicago. The appealing thing about this hotel was its proximity to both Port Everglades and to the Fort Lauderdale airport (FLL). A free shuttle van picked us up at the CruisePort after about an hours wait and three phone calls. Not a real problem. A 10 minute ride and you arrive. Our room was very clean with a great king-sized bed. A refrigerator, microwave, and VCR come with the room. The pool was clean and enjoyable, but pool furniture had seen better days. The complementary breakfast was very adequate along with the free USA today. Another plus was the free wide band internet connection to catch up on the weeks worth of e-mail that was waiting. Shuttle ride to the airport took about seven minutes and curbside checkin was a breeze. I liked the place and would go back!!
