We recently stayed at this hotel after a cruise out of Fort Lauderdale. The rooms were large and clean and modern. The pool and outside patio bar and large seating area are very nice. Staff at the front desk very helpful. Lobby large and open. The hotel was good value for the dollar based on the onsite premises. The evening menu looked nice with a variety of choices. I did not get to try the breakfast due to our early departure.
Now just a couple of issues to take away that last star. If you arrive without a car, there is no easy access to shopping or dining. You can walk about a mile crossing extremely busy intersections to get to multiple dining choices but you run the gambit of encountering unsavoury drunken street people like I did. I would take a cab for the short ride next time. Live and learn.
Also the airport shuttle is not offered around the clock so if you have a very early morning flight, it is taxi time and that will run you about $25.00.
So by car, all good, on foot not so much. Still overall a very nice hotel.
