Hampton Inn Ft. Lauderdale /Downtown Las Olas Area

Reviewed April 22, 2011

The hotel is as promised. It is a nice Hampton Inn with a few extra touches. The two bed room is queen beds, which are always appreciated over double beds. There is a manager's reception on M-W which serves snacks, wine, beer, and soft drinks. The pool is small, but nice to sit out on. The breakfast was varied and better than the last Hampton Inn we stayed at. This one had little boxes of cereal, instant oatmeal, in addition to the hot breakfast item, bagels, waffles, and fruit. The parking was secure in a garage. The workout room was large and sufficiently equipped.

The hotel is in an industry area, within walking distance of the Las Olas Boulevard, however, I wasn't sure if it was safe to walk to the few blocks and instead we drove. This area of town has many restaurants, boutiques, and clubs, so it was hopping and fun to walk around in.

I recommend this hotel if you're looking for value, but next time I'm spending more and staying closer to the water in an area where I can walk around without driving and finding parking first.

Our stay was relaxing. The building was secure and beautiful. The lobby was decorated wonderfully. The elevators needed room keys to go up to the guest floors. The beds and rooms were comfortable and clean. There was wireless highspeed intet that was fast. The parking garage was secure and easy access, even with a large SUV. The breakfast was great and there was a veriety to choose from.

We arrived on Saturday for a one night stay before our cruise. I thought the hotel itself was extremely clean, the staff very friendly and the overall feel of the hotel I would rate as very good. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and you could find pretty much anything you'd like to eat. The buffet wasn't even as packed as I expected it to be on a Sunday morning before a cruise ship departure.

The location is in the business district by the city courthouse and federal buildings. There is a city bus terminal across the street and we did see quite a few homeless persons in the area of the hotel. As a resident of a large city, I didn't notice this as much, as my fellow travelers who live in a smaller city did. A bit shady, but I didn't mind walking the several blocks during the day up to the CVS. Probably wouldn't do it after the sun sets though!

The staff organizing the shuttles to the cruise port were fabulous. Very organized and got us to the port without a problem. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the cruise port or for a winter vacation. I would not hesitate to book this hotel again in the future!

Of note, we did take a taxi to and from the beach and it was $15 one way, not including tip. There was quite a bit of construction during this time also.

Greetings from Sunny South Florida -

I am delighted that you had an outstanding experience with us! We have a fair amount of cruise travelers that love all that we have to offer ~ Being that we are a "different" Hampton Inn with our location and size of the property, this allows for us to have a more spacious breakfast area on the second floor that overlooks the pool area (leaving it less crowded for a more pleasurable breakfast and reception).

Looking forward to seeing you on your next trip to South Florida ~

Thank-You for your review of the property. I agree with you, Hampton Inn as a whole = value. The thing that makes The Hampton Inn City Center stand out is our attached parking garage that has complimentary parking while you are a guest at the hotel and our manager’s reception that offers hearty appetizers Monday - Thursday and complimentary Beer, wine and soda. I am delighted that you had another wonderful experience!

Safe Travels,

We stayed and the Hampton Inn for two nights (Thursday & Friday) prior to boarding a cruise ship. We arrived quite late but made to feel very comfortable by the staff. One very positive we discovered was the small "mini mart" in the lobby. After our long flight we bought a bottle of wine to enjoy in the room and wind down. Our King Deluxe room was very clean and other than the emergency vehicle sirens was very quiet.

The hotel was sold out both nights so one would expect the breakfast buffet area to be totally jammed. However, it is quite large and there were always tables available. This may have been because some guests chose to eat outside by the pool but the staff cleaned tables very quickly when people got up making room for newcomers. A very well done by the very friendly staff. The breakfast choices have been well documented by others but it certainly fully met our expectations.

The hotel is a bit isolated but during the week it is no problem because of the free shuttle that stops at the hotel every 20 minutes. The shuttle takes you on a little tour of downtown Fort Lauderdate with several stops near the riverwalk. We took it to the very nice Publix market where we purchased some snacks and alcohol for the cruise. The stop is right across the street from the market making it very convinient.

All in all this is a very nice hotel and we would not hesitate to book it again. While they do not offer a shuttle from the airport they do provide a free shuttle to the cruise port which is very nice. It leaves on the hour and they take reservations when you check into the hotel.
