Gloria Williams and her staff went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable. I was in dire need of a room because another hotel I'd previously booked was a disaster. I couldn't stay due to the condition of the room. I was in the Fort Lauderdale area for my daughter's college graduation the next day plus it was a holiday weekend, so trying to find another hotel with an available room was difficult. I came upon Holiday Express during my driving search. After explaining my predicament, the staff came through and found an available room for me. It was a handicapped room but that didn't matter. It was clean, comfortable, and at a very reasonable price. To make the situation even more suitable, I discovered the hotel was just two blocks from the convention center where graduation was being held. The staff told me I could leave my car in their parking lot and walk to the venue to save having to pay a $20 fee to park my car at the convention center. Many thanks to Gloria and her staff for the outstanding service in accommodating my needs. Their friendliness was over the top! I recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.
