“Great Location and Facility”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We've stayed at a lot of Embassy Suites and it is clearly our favorite brand when the whole family travels since you can get more than four into the room. What I like about this hotel is the location....easy to get to downtown, the beaches, the expressways, etc. What I didn't like is the cruise crowds. If you are trying to check in, as we were, on a cruise day it is pandemonium. The staff does a great job, but trying to check in at noon and already having 72 people ahead waiting was quite a surprise. Nevertheless, the staff is very good and the pool area very nice as well as all the standard Embassy Suite advantages (reception, breakfast, etc.). The worst thing about this hotel: the internet in the business center or kiosk. It was slower than the first dial up connection I ever had (no kidding). It is soooo frustrating when it takes 20-30 minutes to finally get through a flight check in process only for the connection not to be strong enough to trigger the wireless printer. Simply incredible for this day and age and something they have to fix. We had heard from another guest that they had the same experience at 3am so it wasn't just a high use issue.

Nice hotel to stay in Fort Lauderdale. The location is excellent. Minutes to beach and walking distance to most amenities like multiple restaurants, some shopping etc. it is also close to highway so you could be on your way fast. The parking is only problem with either self service or valet. We chose valet and these guys were very courteous and immediately brought the car to us. The breakfast is above average and they usually have it going another 20 minutes past 9am and manager reception is also nice with drinks and munchies. Some people on trip adviser had complained that the bathroom door opens in the bedroom. Not a biggie for us. It is a bit odd considering all the space in the suite but practically was not a bother for us. Housekeeping staff was very good and courteous and friendly and the rooms were nice and clean once they were done. We stayed there for 4 nights and we would choose this property again in a jiffy. Hopefully next time we are not traveling in a busy season and get better rates.

Huge room, nice pool, great staff. Really needs to provide wifi or Ethernet access to the web.

Out back steakhouse just across the street.

Shuttle to airport was very reasonable ($8.00 per person). And ready to go right on time. We came in from the port after a cruise and allowed access to pool and storage for our bags prior to check in

Having stayed in this hotel in previous years it was an obvious decision to book again for our family. having 2 teenage sons the bedrooms are very convienant. However, the exchange students were over in force dominating the pool area and gym, I appreciate they are kids and I was one myself but it was too over powering. The lifts were always full in mornings, they would barge themselves in, breakfast was so over crowded we gave up. The room itself was not cleaned every day. The waste was cleared and beds made but actual cleaning was non exist ant . The washing machines were always broken a very disappointing stay, I did fill in the questionairre but no response was made. We went to the Keys and on return we booked in to the Pier 66 far superior in all aspects totally recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Don't go here unless you want to be surrounded by exchange students and have a dirty room

My wife & I stayed at this hotel before and after our cruise in March 2013. We arrived Friday evening and there was quite a line of other cruise passengers checking in. Long wait but finally got a room. They charge you a parking fee ($17.00) which we weren't aware prior. The rooms are fine and comes with breakfest which was enjoyable. We also stayed here on our return stay the following Saturday night. I had gotten sick on the ship on Thursday (Norovirus) and my wife got sick on Saturday morning 2:00am before we disembarked the ship. I rented a car and got to the Hotel around 10:45am but there were no rooms available. I asked the check-in people if there was anyway to get a room as my wife was ill and they said "Everybody claims that they are sick". My wife found a chaise lounge at the pool and I layered her with towels and she went to sleep, then we were called about an hour later. My wife then slept all afternoon and we left the next morning on an early flight home. The hotel is fine if you are taking a cruise but we noticed tons of noisy children at breakfest running around and at the pool.

Room Tip: We had a room on level 10 with a nice view of the cruise ships

We're back from a much needed, one week, vacation at the 17th Street Embassy Suites in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. This was our second stay at this location. Last year was an over night stay prior to sail aboard the Oasis. Our check in, this time, went smoothly, not so much the first time. The hotel lobby is nicely done, the water fall and rock formation in the atrium and restaurant area very attractive. Our room on the second floor facing the atrium was quiet and clean. The sofa bed was somewhat uncomfortable, however, this was quickly rectified. The only other complaint was the lack of towel racks in the bathroom. With three of us sharing the suite...it was a challenge to find somewhere to hang all the towels and wash cloths. The evening reception a nice touch; drinks and snacks plentiful. Breakfast buffet had plenty to choose from (yummy). While the staff as a whole were pleasant and helpful, I give a special thanks to Emancia, our housekeeper; Delores on the front desk and Ian our restaurant waiter. Hopefully the towel rack situation will be addressed prior to our next visit.

Room Tip: Stay on one the upper level floors facing the port were you can see the ships come in.

We were pleasantly surprised by the location, size and attractiveness of this hotel. It has a beautiful lobby and indoor garden where they serve an amazing complimentary breakfast. The glass elevators whisked us to our suite in no time at all. The room consisted of a sitting room and bedroom and did not disappoint. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet. Couldn't have asked for more.
