“great potential but just not good enough”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2013

I liked the location. The rooms are nice and big. Great desk service. The room furniture though was filthy. Spots and stains everywhere. Yuck. The toilet seat was loose and broken. The wall receptacle by the sink was loose. I could not safely plug in my razor. The view from the window was an abandoned pool with green water.

Hotel is in the middle of it all. It's the ideal hotel if you're looking for somewhere to stay in this area. Close to a number of food locations, Walgreens walking distance, Broward Mall is a stone throw away and Sawgrass is a couple mins drive, close to the airport and all major routes. I would recommend this hotel to other guests. The room was very clean,housekeeping was there everyday and provided a great service and I really liked the updated kitchenette. The only downside was paying for Internet in the room.

My wife bought our room as part of a weekend getaway on priceline. This hotel is a but worn down but acceptable. However, it is the least secure I have ever felt in a hotel. Two incidents affected the quality of our stay.
1. Upon returning from dinner my computer's antivirus software alerted me that someone had tried to access my computer via the network connection.

2. Someone with a key to our room entered while we were asleep at 1:00 AM. I am usually very vigilant in barring the door. There was no reason for any hotel employee to enter at that time of night and turn on the lights. Fortunately we are safe.

I would never stay at this place again.

Very nice hotel, but on the older side. And a funky parking lot layout. Staff friendly and helpful. But the breakfast buffett staff was disfunctional ... either missed something or received two of something. Ordered coffee and hot chocolate, received two of each ... but no silverware ... asked for OJ, received two ... but didn't receive any water after requesting it. Pirmarily due to host being a waiter, and waiter trying to be a host. Overall, easy to overlook. Will definitely be returning. Next time we hope it's warmer so we can try the pool on the roof.

Room Tip: Request a suite.

My experience wasn't as good as some of the other reviewers, and that probably has more to do with room location than anything else. I found the walls to be very thin, so you are either getting woken up from someone in the hallway or another room.

I was on the 2nd floor next to the dumpster, so I had the pleasure of listening to the staff throwing trash in it, as well as the big truck that came to empty it.

All in all it's not a bad hotel, but there is much better in the Ft. Lauderdale area for pretty much the same price.

Would recommend if you have status with Sheraton to get a room high enough away from the dumpster!!!

Room Tip: Try to get a high up room that isn't in the alley where they keep the dumpster!!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights while vacationing in South Florida. I liked the location cause it was close to the mall. We were able to get a good price from expedia. The hotel is huge and the night we stayed it was packed for a event in the ballroom. Room service was a bit slow, other than that our hotel suite was amazing, big and spacious. I do recommend it to others.

Tom H just said everything I was thinking. This hotel is a gem outside the beaten path of Fort Lauderdale. Good dining all around and easy access to freeway to get you anywhere in South Florida.
I will be making this hotel my first choice from now on
