We recently had the opportunity to stay at this hotel prior to leaving on a cruise out of the Fort Lauderdale Cruise Terminal. We had never stayed in Fort Lauderdale prior to sailing before, and we relied on other Trip Advisor reviews of this property before booking. It was a good choice. The room was very nice and perfect for our needs and was quite reasonable. We really liked the complimentary shuttle from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the cruise terminal.Even the in-hotel restaurant was good, we had supper and breakfast there (there is a seafood restaurant right next to the hotel if you'd rather try that out). All in all it was a great place to stay pre and/or post cruise. We highly recommend it and will probably stay there again on any future Fort Lauderdale cruises.

Very convenient hotel for cruise guests or if you have a flight next morning. They have complimentary shuttles to the cruise- and airport everyday. Free Wi-Fi. They have a pool, but it did not look very inviting......

We stayed here for a couple of nights prior to a cruise leaving from Port Everglades. We were impressed with free transportation to both the airport and cruise port.

Be aware that the fee transportation is only TO the cruise port and you must sign up for it the day before. There are up to 4 shuttles daily between 10AM and 1 PM. There is transport available back, but that is arranged in advance and for a fee. (Airport shuttles are free in both directions.)

The good: The staff was remarkably friendly, from the shuttle drivers to the housekeeping staff. The pool area was very nicely landscaped, like a lush patio. The room was smartly furnished.

We did not ask for an accessible room, although I do get around in a wheelchair; I can get up and walk a few steps. That said, the bathroom was remarkably accessible for a non-accessible room. The countertop is just the right height to slide the chair underneath, and the room is wide enough to slide the wheelchair all the way to the toilet. There's also a small bench at the foot of the tub for seating. The room is open enough to be able to use the chair throughout.

The bad is all about location:
1) The hotel is located away from eateries. Our GPS said the nearest restaurant was a Burger King a mile away. So you're either eating in their Bistro or not at all. There might be some delivery options, but we didn't see any posted in the room.
2) The hotel is cradled between I-95 to the east and Tri-Rail to the west. So you're going to have lots of noise coming into your room no matter which side you're on. Tri-Rail does make it convenient, though, if you want to travel to attractions in any of the downtown or bus-accessible areas.

Thank you for the very thorough review. Well done! I am glad you had a good experience and yes, you said it perfectly that we are very convenient but the convenience of our location can be a bit noisy. Also, there is a fantastic restaurant called Islamorada Fish Company that is right across the parking lot (attached to The Great Outdoors Bass Pro Shop) as an alternative option to The Bistro but other than that, you will have to get some transportation.

Hope to see you again!

I have stayed here many times since it came on line several years ago. Great staff and very responsive to whatever you need! The overall property and rooms are well-maintained and everything works as it should. I will not hesitate to visit on a future business tip to the area!

Stayed one night prior to our cruise and one night afterward. The hotel has a great shuttle service from the airport to the hotel and from the hotel to the cruise port. Well organized process for signing up for shuttles. The shuttle driver was very knowledgeable of the cruise port and got us to the right place in plenty of time get on board. We had a king room both nights, very nice and very quiet. When we returned from our cruise we arrived at the hotel around 9 AM and they had us in a room within 90 minutes or so. It was a little cold in the lobby (especially after just returning from the Caribbean) and the we were offered (and accepted) blankets while we waited for our room. The bistro was quite good, quick and friendly service. The bathroom was showing it's age a bit, some cracked tile around the tub and so forth. All in all, a very good experience and I would recommend this hotel for pre and post cruise lodging.

Room Tip: Try for a room facing the parking lot, as opposed to the side which faces the interstate. Road nois...

Front desk staff were very helpful and polite. Room was very comfortable . However coffee was provided but no milk or sugar for the two nights we stayed . Plug in Internet but sadly no wifi so had to go down to the foyer to use hotel computer . Had a nice breakfast at a very reasonable price . Two minute walk to the IGFA and Big Bass Pro.

Glad to hear the front desk took care of you and that you found the room comfortable. I am so sorry that we missed your condiment packets. I need sugar as well! On the internet, we do have wifi throughout the entire hotel including the outside areas as well so you can stay connected wherever you choose to relax. I apologize that it wasn't allowing you to connect.

Please let me know if you are ever in the area again and I'll be sure we get you connected! Thank you again for staying with us and for taking the time to share your experience.

We stayed here the night before a cruise out of Miami - Jan. 18, 2013, after flying in from Houston, TX.

The shuttle to the hotel was there within 15 minutes of our call, although another couple said they'd been waiting almost an hour in the pickup area. (Don't know whether they called the hotel when they arrived.)

The rooms were spacious, nicely-decorated & well-maintained. We had a King bed room, and there was plenty of walk-around space. No sound from outside or from the hotel itself, and very comfortable bedding, so we slept well.

The onsite restaurant was great! Prices weren't overboard, food was delicious and freshly-prepared. We had dinner & breakfast there, and were very impressed.

The hotel includes a business center, featuring computer terminals with two dedicated to airport check-in. The lounge area is very nice, and there's plenty of access to TV in the lobby.

The staff was extremely helpful in all ways. We had booked SAS Shuttle to take us to the Port of Miami the next morning, so didn't sign up for the hotel's free shuttle to Port Everglades. But we were VERY impressed with Courtyard's management of the hotel's shuttle service. A woman used the sign-in sheet and coordinated how the vans would be utilized, and it seemed very fair & smooth.

I highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay at the airport in Ft. Lauderdale. I got a great rate through Priceline.com, too!
