We actually had booked our original reservation at another hotel (ES). Once we arrived at the other hotel, we were immediately told that they were overbooked despite having made the reservation some 5 months ahead of time. ES put us up for the night at this Hampton Inn.
From now on, Hampton Inn Las Olas will be the place to stay before and possibly after our cruise vacation. The employees were prompt, courteous and very efficient. The room was clean and quite comfortable. For the money, this hotel provides a great service. The complimentary breakfast was good and the free shuttle service to the pier was absolutely wonderful.
It is a short taxi ride to many shops and restaurants. We had no trouble getting a taxi within 10 minutes. Yes, you can walk there in about 20 minutes but the hotel is located in the financial district which isn't too populated at night or weekends, so we felt more comfortable taking a taxi. The taxi fare is about $6 each way without tip.
The hotel isn't noisy, as there isn't any traffic going by on the road. Our sleep quality was wonderful.
We also enjoyed relaxing by the pool, which is kept sparkling clean.
We will definitely stay at Hampton Inn Downtown Ft Lauderdale again.
