Having stayed at 2 four star hotels in Fort Lauderdale this last month, we decided to try the Hyatt Place even though it was only listed as a 3 star. We were more than pleasantly surprised. The Hyatt Place was every bit equal to the more expensive four star hotels with three exceptions... 1- The Hyatt Place has FREE parking (whereas we paid $25 to $30 a night at the four star hotels), 2- The Hyatt Place has FREE breakfast, and 3- the Hyatt Place has a FREE airport shuttle. With years of hotel experiences behind us, I can confidently state the Hyatt Place was our most pleasant surprise and we recommend it unreservedly.
The location is "Dania" however it is just south of the FLL airport. We had our Alamo rental car so we didn't need the transportation. Adjacent to the Interstate, the rooms on the side of the Interstate can pick up some minimal traffic noise.
Transportation: In addition to the free airport shuttle, they have a free shuttle to nearby shopping and dining. They offer a cruise port shuttle for $10 per person (If you have more 3 or more people a taxi would be the either the same price or cheaper though).
They have one of the better Hot and Cold Breakfast Buffets and 24 hour coffee bar that serves Starbucks.
The pool is not as huge as the four star resort hotels. However, it is warm, and offers some fun for the kids. There is a limited but clean and very usable exercise room.
