Howard Johnson Hotel in Fort Lauderdale

My family and I are booked on a vacation to stay at the HoJo's in Fort Lauderdale from Nov. 20 - 26. Can anyone give me any information as to the damage in the area? Are restaurants open? Are there gas lines, electricity, water etc.? If anyone can give me any information I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks !!!

For the best information on your lodging, call the hotel.

Also, see the Sun Sentinel newspaper web site:

Forget it. I have reservations for Nov.10. As far as I know, the hotel suffered significant damage and is still without electricity. Their telephones are down also and the entire beach area got hit pretty hard. They have been under curfew and only allowing residents into the area. I have alternative reservations at the Holiday Inn. They CLAIM that they will be reopenning Nov.7. They do have power but suffered structural damage to the hotel. I have my doubts that they will be open on Nov.7. Time will tell.
