Hilton Garden Inn Ft. Lauderdale Airport-Cruise Port
Ranked #6 of 22 Hotels in Dania Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I just returned from a stay at the Hilton Garden Inn, Dania Beach Fl. Last year at this time, I made a mistake and stayed at the Rodeway Inn and Suites which is nearby. What a diffetrence. The Hilton was clean and attractive. The surroundings were pleasant and the bed was comfortable. The staff was pleasant and seemed glad you were there. In contrast, the Rodeway Inn was a dump. The place was seedy, unkempt and the room had a musty smell. The bed was adequate but not the most comfortable I have slept on. The staff were not unpleasannt but were just there. The only suggestion I can make is do not Google for Ft Lauderdale but be sure to use Dania Beach or you will end up in a subdivision about two miles from your destination. The hotel is only about ten minutes from the Airport and they do not charge overnight parking for a rental car. Bob Furness.

We have stayed at this hotel twice when going on cruises, and would love to visit again. The employees are friendly and attentive, as if they are welcoming you to their home. They seem genuinely happy to work there, and to help you with any need. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and bright. The grounds are truly gardens, beautiful in February, exquisitely lush in warmer months. The business center is complete, and the lobby restaurant and bar prepare tasty meals and snacks for breakfast and dinner, with a room service option. Complimentary coffee and waters are available in the lobby.There are shopping and dining options in walking distance, but the complimentary shuttle will take you where you want to go. They also provide complimentary airport transportation. If you are cruising, you can purchase transportation in the lobby to the cruise port, and from the port to the airport on your return at very reasonable rates. Our cruise returned early, but our flight home wasn't until late afternoon. We were brought back to the hotel where we enjoyed the hotel's public amenities and concierge service until time to check in for our flight! I would recommend this hotel with no reservation to anyone leave from the Ft. Lauderdale cruise port, as well as to anyone wanting to visit the area and stay in an off-beach location.

I have stayed here several times. Hotel was recently repainted and rooms refreshed. A very comfortable hotel in a busy Fort Lauderdale area.

I was welcomed as a return guest and for my Diamond Club loyalty. Breakfast was good, although I saw one morning the kitchen got backed up. I had plenty to choose from.

What I like best about HGI is the fact if you have been working all day you can get a drink and dinner off the lobby.

Great location for business or cruisers.

We only stayed one night but I would most certainly return. They had a nice bar in connected to lobby area. Very friendly bartender and they had late night food. Very nice room, comfy bed and linens. Would recommend!

The hotel was great. ...service was phenomenal....we had a problem getting a shuttle from the airport because we were told to stand in the wrong place....when we got there we explained to the desk clerk...we were immediately comped with free dessert for our troubles. We stayed here before going on a cruise. They have a very nice shuttle service...took us to restaurant for dinner.
T"he breakfast was wonderful....we ended up using our comp tickets for breakfast instead of dessert the night before.

We've stayed at Hilton Hotels since 2009, from Hawaii to New York City and everywhere in between. We have yet to have a bad room, for us Hilton is the only place to stay. The only thing
I don't like is the pillows! I like a firm pillow and the ones offered are just to soft. I also would like a bigger coffee pot and more coffee. It would also be nice if every room had an in room safe and refrig. Just a few small items that would make the stay even more enjoyable.

My husband needed a hotel for one night prior to a cruise and this one worked out OK. Being close to the airport was a plus for our late night arrival but having to wait 30+ minutes for the shuttle to the hotel was a bit annoying. Lobby was nice and not congested, but we were a late arrival. Check in was quick and effortless....very nice. Room was quiet, even though we were near the airport. Overall, very good, with the shuttle delay.
