Le Meridien Dania Beach at Fort Lauderdale Airport
Ranked #15 of 22 Hotels in Dania Beach
GreenLeadersBronze level
Reviewed December 8, 2012

We stayed at this hotel as a one night stay to bridge our arrival in Fort Lauderdale and the departure of our cruise. I got the impression that most of the guests at this hotel stay for a one night stop over.

Plus:
-Free shuttle to local shops or resteraunts. Although the shuttle is free, we tipped the driver who was great.
-Modern hotel
-Nice pool and exercise room
-Free WiFi in the lobby (not in room) and a business center
-Friendly hotel staff
-Nice Rooms

Cons:
-Due to the location of the hotel, it didn't seem safe to walk to anywhere. They do however offer a free shuttle service, which more then compensated.
-They charged for Internet in the room

We stayed here as a family for one night before going on a cruise, our room was clean comfortable and very large. It is too far to walk any where but for one night it was great. We slept well and had a good breakfast, the shuttle to the port was well organised all be it a bit long winded. We said we would stay here again if on a similar trip.

My wife and I stayed here after our recent cruise. We took a shuttle from Port Everglades to the airport and then called the free hotel shuttle to go to the hotel. We contacted the hotel to inquire about the shuttle and they were fantastic in directing us where to go and having the shuttle pick us up in less than 10 minutes.

We arrived quite early at the hotel and unfortunately our room wasn't ready but that was ok because the lobby area was clean, bright and had plenty of seating areas. We were able to store our luggage with the concierge which allowed us to sit and not worry about the luggage.

There is complimentary internet for registered guests and it was fantastic to see 4 computers with a networked laser printer. I've seen one, maybe two computers in other hotels for guests to use but to see 4, that was unexpected and a welcome sight. The computers are spaced far enough apart from each other and the area which the computers were situated, was comfortable.

We stayed in a room with a king size bed which was starting to show it's age. The bed springs creaked but at least it wasn't uncomfortable. There is a in room coffee maker but no microwave or fridge. A large LCD TV was perfect for viewing. The room was clean and we had no complaints.

The best part about this hotel was the outstanding staff from the shuttle driver, concierge staff, to the front desk personnel. They were friendly, personable and best of all, made us feel welcome. The next time we come back for another cruise, we will definitely be back. One thing though, if you are looking at going to either Sawgrass Mills mall or sightseeing, rent a car as while the hotel is close to the airport, it is a bit of a distance from everything else such as convenience stores or other sites.

Great place to stay before ir after a cruise. Easy access to both FLL and Port Everglades, and they offer cheap long term parking for cruise goers.

What gave the lower rating on this review was that the first night we were there, their entire system shut down and my experience was pretty dismal. No room service, so I had to go down and order at the bar, order took forever, wasn't right, and the food was mediocre. Room was nice, but the overall experience was just okay.

Look up "courtesy" or "Amazing Service" in the dictionary and you will find Sondra Josephs picture. When you check in with Sondra the hotel lights up with great service and a nice room to boot. Internet connection very fast. Very enjoyable and comfortable. A++++ Staff is very quick to respond to all requests. You will enjoy this hotel, trust me...

We stayed in this hotel the night before a cruise. The shuttle service from the airport and to the cruise ship were great, very efficient. They even let us check in early since our flight got in much earlier than expected!

The rooms are great, amazing beds. We also utilized the fitness center which was awesome, as was the pool. I was bummed that the standard in-room Starbucks coffee was not offered in this Sheraton. Instead it was a generic hotel brand. :/

The only disappointment was the food. We ate lunch in the hotel in the Fire Iron Grille since we didn't have a car, and it was awful. Not only was it grossly overpriced, the food was just bad and the service was slow. I got a chicken sandwich. There was hardly any chicken on the sandwich and too much bread. My boyfriend got fish, and it was also bad. It just had a really bad taste. The breakfast buffet was good, however it was extremely crowded and difficult to get food. And after waiting for quite some time had to seek out my own coffee. One should never have to wait for coffee during a breakfast service.

We prebooked and stayed at this hotel on Nov 9th after returning from a Panama cruise. Very easy to get the shuttle (11$ pp) to the airport to pick up a rental car and to find the hotel. Rates reasonable, welcoming staff, pay additional for parking, in-suite wifi plus lobby computer terminals, excellent lobby bar and restaurant and very clean and quiet room. Easy to return car and catch flight.
