Stayed for one night before a cruise. Free wifi, breakfast and airport shuttle. You have to call the hotel to arrange for the shuttle to pick you up from the airport.

This was a great place to stay. No complaints. The staff was friendly, the free breakfast was varied and had healthy choices. Hotel was kept clean. My only complaint would be the "gym", which was basically a closet. I exercise just about everyday but I could not bring myself to use it. I know space may be tight but I... More

Also convenient to some stores to buy last minute essentials before your trip. This hotel does not have a pool, but has a fitness center. Staff was extremely friendly and... More

This is a very nice hotel clean and friendly staff. Rooms were very clean with very comfy beds (Soft). Breakfast was hot and a different variety to choose from. Shopping is very close within walking distance. I highly recommend staying her the night before a cruise.

Nice hotel. We chose to stay here even though we were cruising from Miami because we flew into Ft. Lauderdale. Hotel is in a great location for the airport as well. Ate dinner and breakfast in the restaurant and both meals were very good. The staff was very friendly too. Highly recommend.

Well-maintained property. Convenient to the convention center, airport and cruise port. Several restaurants within walking distance. The staff at the front desk was exceptional. Willing to accommodate our request for a late check out and allowed us to stay in the lobby after we checked out while our flat tire on the car was being fixed. Will stay there again.
