There are tons of hotel choices in the Ft. Lauderdale area, surely most of them are far better than this poorly rated hotel. Check-in staff was smug and not friendly at all. The breakfast buffet was decent, probably the only positive about the hotel stay. The room had a musty, dirty odor that was worse when the air conditioning was on. Worst of all, the hotel staff clearly has is making kick-backs by steering their guests to take one of their "preferred" shuttle services to/from the ports for cruises. We booked a Disney cruise that embarks from Port of Miami. When I checked in, I was looking for advice to get taxi-ed vs. shuttled to the Port of Miami the next morning. The check-in attendant warned me that a cab ride would easily be $100-$120 to Port of Miami. I pushed back on him about this and was assured from the taxi company the rate would not be more than $65 and probably less than that. He insisted I was wrong about this, and kept trying to convince me to take an $85 shuttle service (the shuttle driver happened to be standing in the lobby right as I was being persuaded to use his services). I refused and took the cab instead. I explained this saga to the cab driver, and he was furious. He said hotels like that are killing his business, because they have under the table arrangements to steer their guests to use the far more expensive shuttle vans and obviously receive kickbacks for it. The rate was only $60 from the hotel to Port of Miami BTW. Stay away from this corrupt hotel if you are cruising and just using this hotel to bunk for a night!
