“Pleasantly surprised... a welcome find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2011

There's a lot to like about the Cambria Suites at the Fort Lauderdale airport. I was very impressed and am looking forward to staying again. The choice hotel chain often has good value, but the Cambria Suites was exceptional value.

Their transportation to and from the airport and cruise pier was timely and as promised. The entire staff was well-groomed, very friendly and helpful.

The hotel reminds me of the Indigo chain: hip, modern, and chicly designed. It also offers many amenities of the big guys while being very budget conscious. The entire hotel is in warm autumn colors, which can make it a bit dark at times. The artwork is contemporary and interesting. There's a combination bar/restaurant with simple, moderately-priced, quality offerings that don't require a huge staff. Nice. But it's NOT complimentary, even for breakfast.

There a good gym with aerobic machines and some weight machines...as well as free weights. The pool is smaller, but tastefully furnished and landscaped. The hot-tub was perfect.

The rooms were better than expected. I had the low-end suite and was pleasantly surprised. The small bedroom had a great bed with 6 pillows and high-count white cotton linens. There was a nice flat screen TV and alarm clock.

The sitting room was small, but had a desk, sofa-bed, ottoman and another flat screen TV. There were linens in the closet for the sofa-bed. The bathroom was very modern (and CLEAN) with a walk in travertine shower and a square, white sink mounted on a black granite counter. Way cool. And there were even enough towels. The Bath and Body Works amenities were a nice touch.

There was also a cuisinart coffee maker and a refrigerator and stainless microwave. LOVE that!

I originally said there was a lot to like about the Cambria Suites, Fort Lauderdale. I stand corrected: there's a lot to LOVE!

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the pool...and avoiding the noisier I-95 side

We would recommend this hotel. The staff is excellent! The only problem is the bathroom. It is beautiful, but the designers should have made shower doors. They made only a shower no bathtub with the enclosure in the front made of glass. It is cold whenntaking a shower.

Room Tip: We stayed twice and had two great rooms.

I booked this hotel for a one night stay before our cruise. I picked it based on reviews on tripadvisor and hotels.com. When we arrived at Ft. Lauderdale airport I called for the complementary shuttle. The shuttle arrived about 20 minutes after I called. The hotel is very close to the airport. Upon entering the hotel, we were greeted by name by the gentleman at the front desk. I informed him that we would need a shuttle to the cruise port at 11:30 am for 13 people. There was no wait to check in and even though it was 1pm, our room was ready. We were on the 5th floor overlooking the pool. We were amazed with how spacious and clean the room was. The hotels decor is modern. Our room consisted with a sitting area/living room with a small couch (which converts to a bed), coffee table, desk and flat screen TV. There is a partition and then 2 queen beds with another flat screen TV. The beds were very comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. The bathroom was modern and very clean. There was also a microwave and small refridgerator in the room.

We used the pool when we got there. It was clean and refreshing. There is also a hot tub. Clean pool towels are provided as you enter the pool area. Next to the pool area is a very nice fitness center. We sat at the bar for a few drinks in the lobby before dinner. The bartendars were great at serving beers but weren't sure about how to make mixed drinks (baybreeze, mai tai). The front desk has a list of local restaurants. The hotel has a restaurant in the lobby, but we decided to walk to a nearby plaza for dinner (had TGIFridays, Dave and Busters, Moonlight Diner and stores). FYI--the shopping center is huge and the restaurants are towards the back. We were OK with the walk, but it was further than we expected and involved crossing the highway.

The next morning, my husband took our kids to the breakfast buffet (not included). We aren't big breakfast eaters, but I didn't hear any complaints. The desk arranged for 2 shuttles (complementary) to the cruise port since we were a large party. The shuttles were ready and waiting for us by 11:15am.

Everyone in our party was happy with Cambria Suites. I would definitely stay there again!

We stayed here before a cruise in January. Our ship didn’t leave Fort Lauderdale until Monday, so we decided to spend the weekend in Florida. Staying at the Cambria Suites worked out well. The staff was very friendly. They offered complementary shuttle service from the airport and to the cruise port. There was a good breakfast buffet each morning for $8 per person. They also offered a dinner menu and bar service. Lunch was only pre-made sandwiches and salads for sale. The rooms had a sofa and nice comfortable bed. The pool area was good with ample lounge chairs. There are, however, limited places to eat within walking distance of the Cambria Suites. We would stay here again before a cruise.

This is a great hotel with a great location to the airport. Whether you're flying out or sailing off on a cruise, this location is perfect if you need a room the night before your trip or a night when you return. Extremely clean and very courteous staff. Food is delicious and reasonably priced for a hotel. Nice pool and workout room. Great place to stay without breaking the bank.

The staff was excelent. Very friendly. The hotel is very nice. The only problem we had was when we came back from the pool, which is very small, we discovered our bathroom was dirty. There was a dirty washcloth hanging over the shower head and the tub was dirty. We called the front desk and they brought us up the key for the room next door. The beds are very comfortable. We would definately stay here again!!

We stayed here the night before our cruise on the 25th June. We arrived at the hotel which we found no problem at all (just off the freeway).
We were warmly greeted by Kamal and a female receptionist (sorry can't remember her name!) and were checked in immediately. Our room was very spacious, very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was spotless with plenty of towels and complimentary toiletries. We booked the cruise package which included keeping our car for the duration of the cruise and also return transfers. We booked our transfer to the cruise port for 10.30 am the next morning and at 10.25 the mini bus arrived and off we went. On the return we phoned the hotel and the mini bus came down to the port, collected us and took us back to the hotel to collect our car. The drivers of the mini bus were very friendly.
Before we left for our cruise we had the buffet breakfast in the hotel and were pleased with the selection which included sausage, bacon, eggs, cereals, fruit, juices and coffee, it cost $8 and was worth it.
This really is a fantastic hotel, we will definitely stay again, and would highly recommend it.
