“It is a beautiful, clean hotel, very convenient for going on a cruise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2009

Our overnight stay was February 21, 2009 and we loved it just as much we did last year. The place is very clean and provides a feeling of tranquility. The hotel bar has a beautiful fish tank and the swimming pool, with a waterfall, provides elegant background for dining, especially for breakfast. When we arrived for dinner, we had to wait about 10 minutes to be seated because there was a large group in the restaurant. While waiting, a gentleman approached us and vehemently complained about the food and the management, how the food was very bad, that he didn't get served for 2 hours, and that the management was unresponsive. He highly recommended nearby Denny's because he didn't want to be kept captive by Holiday Inn. Because of our prior very positive experience we decided to stay, since we were on vacation and were in no hurry. Our food was exceptionally good and the staff very friendly. We also greatly enjoyed the table lamps that kept changing colors. The manager himself made my drink and made our dinner very enjoyable. If you come here in a very large group and need all the food served all at once, it might be a problem. However, since this is a gourmet restaurant with fine dining, a short wait for a very fine dinner is well worth the time.

This was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, in a hotel! We had a king bed. Two soft pillows and two firm pillows - labeled invitingly to choose from. Flat screen TV. Nice sized bathroom with nice fixtures. High quality food from restaurant - I had Cobb salad with all fresh ingredients. My husband had the 1/2 pound burger which was extra good with all kinds of toppings. Beautiful warm pool outside and hot tub.

While the hotel is convenient to the Cruise Terminal, and the accommodations are adequate though overpriced for a Holiday Inn, the management and restaurant are are the worst I have ever encountered. The food served to our group was of poor quality, with some items not as described on the menu. The service was totally inadequate with some waiting more than 2 hours for their food and some orders were incomplete. The management was indifferent to our complaints and added unreasonable gratuities to our bill. If you must stay here, eat at Denny's across the street which is friendly, tasty and fast.

I have stayed at this hotel several times and have never had a bad expierence.

The hotel is newer and the rooms are clean. The beds were comfortable, they had the memory foam mattresses.

The swilling pool and patio are great. The pool is heated and they also have a whirlpool.

They are located right off I-95 & Sheridan, and within walking distance to Denny's Restaurant and accross the street from shopping. It is about a 10 minute drive to the beach, just take Sheridan east until you reach Holywood Beach.

This is a perfect hotel to stay at for your pre and post cruise trip. They have free shuttle to Fort Lauderdale Airport.

My family stayed this past Christmas, and the kids loved the heated pool. We plan on going back during Easter Break.

This was my second time staying at this particular Holiday Inn. The front desk clerks were very kind and helpful. We checked into our room, in which was very lovely, it had a huge flat screen tv, two queen size beds, free internet, and a nice bathroom. Our view overlooked the pool, train tracks and Sheridan street. Which was all very beautiful, even though its just a high way. We checked out the gym, in which you had to have your room key to get into (excellent idea I must add). No one was in there but my Boyfriend & I. The equipment was your basic weights and cardio.
The pool was amazing! The waterfall was the prettiest site from the room. The underwater lights lite up the pool, waterfall & jacuzzi. While packing up to leave we had bit of a problem, we had to shower and the water was off... we called front desk and they assured us that there was some quick maintenance and it would be on as soon as possible! We checked out on time and they apologized greatly for the mis hap. The staff was great needless to say.

We were put in this hotel by our airline after we missed a connecting flight.. It was not a good situation and the hotel went above and beyond to make us comfortable, understanding that we were stressed and not very happy campers when we arrived (there were probably 200 of us in the same boat). The room was huge and lovely, I think it was a suite. There was an eating area, a desk, pull out couch with coffee table, a nice TV with a lot of channels and a huge bathroom with the biggest shower I have seen, of marble and glass. It was impeccably clean, and the bed was very comfortable. It had one of those memory foam mattresses on it and seemed to be brand new. The staff helped us print off all the changes in accommodations etc due to our flight delay and everyone, even the people in the restaurant were friendly and helpful. Though we didn't know about this hotel before we were stranded there, we would stay again if we were in the Ft Lauderdale area. Clean, quiet room with new furnishings, free high speed internet, a fridge and microwave, fat thirsty towels. It made for a restful night and we were grateful to be there!

  • Liked — Clean quiet room, comfortable bed, huge shower, nice staff.
  • Disliked — We would have preferred an innerspring mattress over a memory foam one, but it wasn't too bad.
