“Nice Property with remodeled rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

I stayed on the 6th floor and enjoyed a king bedded room with a large LCD television. The room had been totally remodeled recently and had the new carpet smell when I walked in. The bathroom had a nice, glass enclosed shower.

I would stay here again

The price was very reasonable since it was 90/90 outside (90 degrees, 90% humidity)

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

I was recently leaving for a cruise out of Ft. Lauderdale and needed a hotel for the night before. Having good luck with Holiday Inn in the past, I decided to stay here. I've been a rewards member for years and never really understood the "perks" of membership (other than hopefully earning a free night) until I stayed here.

Upon arrival, I was given a "goodie" bag to make my stay more enjoyable (included crackers, etc.).

The room (as I am sure is the case for all rooms - not just "perks") was very clean, spacious with a very comfortable bed. No complaints there.

Breakfast was more than adequate. I was able to go down, fix a dish and return to my room to get ready in the morning.

The ship wasn't leaving until later in the afternoon and I was hoping to extend my check out for about an hour. When I called the desk, they said I was an honors member and could have late check out until 2 pm (NEVER told that before).

The front desk was more than accommodating...offering to help with transportation and a very nice "come back" as I was leaving.

All in all, a place I would HIGHLY recommend (at a really reasonable price as well!!)

After seeing another major average review at 3.5, I was a bit skeptical. Pleasantly surprised though - the overall decor, nice carpeting, great pool area, decent bar, comfortable bed, Panasonic plasma TV in room. Price - value great. Only things that kept rating below a five were the arrival experience waiting for the airport shuttle - over an hour to get from the airport to the hotel. the return shuttle was much better. The multi-plug adapter in the room didn't work and consequently one light didn't. Otherwise a very comfortable and pleasant stay with a friendly staff.

We were arriving very late for our vacation so I was searching for a place close to the airport to to stay, the price was great and the pool looked amazing. I was very pleased to see that it was better than expected. The rooms are nice, beds are comfortable and the staff is very friendly.

We arrived late and stayed 1 night before going to our final destination in Hollywood. The room was clean and quiet. The hotel front desk was efficient at check in. Perfect for a quick stay near the airport.

The exteriors & interiors of this hotel bordered on ART. Very well done. Kudos on whoever
designed and constructed the bathroom/shower areas. As good as it gets! The staff was very
friendly and helpful. The morning buffet was very good and wait staff amazingly friendly. Can't
say enough about the amenities and ambiance of this place!

If I'm management, I'm doing the following things to get that 5th star:
1. Can't believe a hotel this nice would still have noisy room A/C units instead of Central A/C.
THAT was a big negative when you are a tired traveller and want a good night's sleep;
2. After 2 phone calls and 45 minutes in a very uncomfortable shuttle pick-up location at FLL,
we finally got the hotel shuttle. Not impressed.

These are negatives that need to be addressed! The next time we head to FLL we'll see if
any of these issues have been resolved. We sure did like the place. Beautiful & friendly!

We ended up at this Holiday Inn after a reservation « snafu » with another hotel in the area that cancelled our 4 rooms because of a change of the expiry date on my credit card – a long story…

Being stuck at FLL on a Friday evening in high cruise season with no hotel to go was no fun and a mad scramble was started to find something at a reasonable rate. After calling a few hotels that were either full or charged an arm and a leg, we reached this HI and explained our predicament. They had just a few rooms left and they were initially asking 250$ per room, the famous best available rate, but they agreed to give us a discount since we took four rooms. While the reduced rate was higher than the first hotel we had reserved, it was now more acceptable and we did not have much choice. We also had to plan to pay our breakfast since they did not include it in the rate but, to the credit of the manager at HI, they did agree to offer breakfast for a few of us and it was free for the kids.

We had a general good first impression as we arrived and we did not explore much then as it was late and still had not eaten any supper. Off we were to Denny’s close-by. Our rooms were located on the 6th floor and I don’t have any complaints about them, except for the noisy a/c unit that made sleeping a little harder, since I’m a rather light sleeper. Furniture was in very good shape, everything was pretty clean and the queen beds were comfortable. In the morning, we got a better look at the hotel and it’s a pretty nice establishment, although the surrounding area and neighborhood left somewhat to be desired, but it was very convenient to reach the airport and the port.

For breakfast, they offered a good variety but the space was a little cramped for all those who wanted to eat in the morning. The kids loved the pool and we had a hard time getting them out when it was time to leave. Finally, as we had a rental car, we didn’t use the free shuttle from the airport but members of our group did and they were satisfied with the service. They also used the shuttle ($) to the port and no complaints there.

Would I go back to this HI ? Yes and no. I found that the hotel was overall a good choice but it’s asking a too high price for what it’s offering, considering that breakfast is also not included. I imagine they are going with supply and demand to set prices and if the hotel is full, regardless of those prices, they will not lower them. So, I guess I would try to find something cheaper before going back but if no other real options were available, I would return.
