We took the free shuttle from the airport which was a little confusing to find, but worked out well. The driver was pleasant and helpful as were the front desk staff. We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel restaurant and were pleasantly surprised. The quality was very good and the service was prompt and pleasant. They gave us a voucher for a free drink which was a nice touch. The pool looked great, but we were not there long enough to take advantage. There isn't much of a lobby and you enter via the underground parking - not the best feeling, but I never felt unsafe.
We were able to purchase a shuttle ride to the cruise port and also a voucher for the return to the airport. Both were from an independent company and were reasonably priced and prompt.
The room itself was a standard hotel room. It was clean and had everything in working order. I found it completely acceptable and would recommend it to anyone needing a place to stay before or after a cruise or flight from Fort Lauderdale airport. There doesn't seem to be much in the area, so I would choose a different location if looking to spend time in the Fort Lauderdale area.
