I have been staying at this hotel every few months for over 4 years now. I am an top tier member of Holiday Inn’s reward program and stay in hotels over 125 night a year on average. I do not take writing this review lightly. I have never been treated like I was treated today in my life. The male front desk person was rude and has no business working with the public. Think twice before booking your stay here.

Dear karaba22, We understand that we are not the right fit for every traveler. The last time you stayed with us was in Feb 2020. Things have changed with COVID. There are many deaths here in southern Fla, that is why Broward County has mandated that all persons wear a face mask when inside public areas. This is only when checking in, walking through the lobby and public areas of the hotel. (approx 2 minutes) You refused to abide by the rules. This is not discrimination, this is common courtesy and regards for others. Because of this action, everyone (including the other guest that offered you a mask), feel unsafe around you. There is no excuse for being rude to you and it is not acceptable for you to be rude to our staff. We see that you found another hotel in Palm Beach county. Hope you were able to stay without a mask. Safe Travels, Jo Jean and Entire Team

This was not my first choice location since I preferred something more central to the action in Fort Lauderdale. But since I didn't book in advance, I didn't have much choice and this was only IHG place that would accept my Rewards night on short notice. Luckily a friend dropped me off here. I had pleasant interactions with staff and was satisfied with the room and free breakfast. I ended up taking a Lyft to get back to downtown Fort Lauderdale the next day so it was good for a night's stay in a pinch.

We stayed one night before a cruise and will not return. The room we stayed in needed obvious repairs, but no one seems to care. The fan in the bathroom comes on when you turn on the light, and it is loud (very loud). I seriously thought that a big rig was parked outside the room, but discovered that it was the bathroom fan. When we showered, we discovered that the tub drained very, very slowly as well. Assuming that the room is cleaned every day, these things should have been discovered and fixed before our arrival. The water also had a brownish tinge to it, never saw anything like this before, anywhere. The bathroom door was pretty gross as well, see pic. The front desk people were very nice, but someone seriously needs to make sure that these rooms are kept in working condition.

Dear VegasBrian, So sorry that you had a bad stay. You must have the wrong hotel as we have a carbon fitration system to eliminate our 'brownish' water here in Ft Lauderdale area. It filters all of our water coming into the building. It is brownish in most of the coastal area as the water level is very high. Safe Travels, Jo and Entire Team

I expended one night at the Holiday Inn Express and Suites at Ft Lauderdale, 1500 West Commerce. December 29-30, today I checked out and I forgot a bag with my crochet, wools, and a scissors. I called around 3 hours later to ask them to send me the bag with the crochet, and the rest of the goods to my address and I will pay for the shipping. They said that the bag was not at Lost and found, that sorry but they did not find. I know that I left in the bed and it was visible. Someone stole it. I was crocheting for the baby of a friend, and for this reason is very important to me the bag and my stuff. I called the hotel twice and they said that they will contact me back, and they did not. Today contacted me a person from IHG Services and she contacted the hotel but still not results. I cannot believe that they cannot find, it was on the bed. I also realized that I left an eye shadow palette in the room, and the same: they did not find.

Dear Ms A B, Thank You for your business. I am the GM of the hotel and looked for the lost goods when you called. There was nothing in that room, the lobby or the breakfast area. We cannot be responsible for items you lost or left somewhere. Our staff turn in any item found. We log it in our records, call the guest and return what we find. (strict routine followed) So sorry that you feel this way. Happy New Year Jo and Team.
