“Good Location. Perfect for before a cruise.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

We stayed here the night before departing on a cruise. It is in a great location, close to the airport and crusie terminal. They have a free shuttle from the airport and it is a short ride to the hotel. The rooms and building nothing spectacular but clean and well kept. The bed was comfortable and they have a good breakfast selection. It is within walking distance of stores and restaurants. If you forgot anything there is a Dollar Tree, Windixie and Walgreens a couple blocks away. It is a little bit of a walk but you can also walk to the beach. I would definitely stay here again.

If you are going to the cruise port have the front desk call a cab for you. It was only $6.00 for a cab ride to the port and $8.00 per person for the shuttle that the hotel advertises. The front desk clerk was nice enought to point that out for us and call us a cab.

We stayed here before and after a cruise. Every thing was perfect. Front desk was great. Very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was outstanding with "real" food. The whole hotel was clean and the rooms really nice. Nice pool area. Free Shuttle to/from airport. Shuttle to and from ship at $8-10 pp. A taxi would be about the same price as port is really close. A strip mall across the street with most anything you need. 5 or 6 restaurants and a drug store within walking distance. Come early and stay late to enjoy Ft Lauderdale.

This is one of the cleanest, most friendly, convenient and well run Holiday Inn Express Hotels I've visited (I'm a Platinum Elite member, so I have visited many). From receiving an 'early' check in after returning from a Royal Caribbean Cruise, to the Breakfast in the morning, I found nothing but high standards. Our room was immaculate, quiet, and well equipped, with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. More channels on the TV than any one person can watch, and a free shuttle to Ft. Lauderdale airport and Cruise Port. A special thank you to Michelle the Breakfast Hostess who made morning delightful! Thank you Michelle, you made my wife very happy! (I hope you get this 'Thank You!)

As an Airline pilot, i've stayed at many hotels all over the United States. Some were great! Others, not so much. The Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites Ft. Lauderdale Airport/Cruise left me just shy of speechless. Their attention to detail, courtesy and professionalism left little to be desired. From the service counter at front desk, to house keeping and airport shuttle drivers, everyone seemed to operate with customers utmost satisfaction in mind. Daniela Sanchez from front desk was particularly helpful. Whether i needed directions or suggestions for dining for my crew, or just points of interest, she was ready and willing to assist.
The rooms are in excellent condition. For persons who like to keep energized with a work out session after a busy day, a fitness room is provided. Its small, but adequate. With breakfast being served from 6-10 both the early birds and the , " i just wanna sleep in " can benefit.
If you looking for a great place to stay in Ft Lauderdale, I'd highly recommed Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites Ft. Lauderdale Airport/Cruise .

This was the perfect hotel for our pre cruise stay in Ft. Lauderdale. It was clean, the beds were comfortable and the staff was friendly and efficient. It was also conveniently located and the rate was reasonable. The manager, Ray, was very helpful in answering our questions and giving us advice for sights to see in Lauderdale. I will definitely stay there again in the future.

Clean, comfortable rooms, great breakfast and reasonable shuttle to cruise port.
Extremely handy since port is congested and you can leave your car at hotel.
Staff at check in were accommodating and efficient

The availability of a hot and varied breakfast in the morning as well as hany shuttle to cruiseport was an added plus.

Danelia was very helpful in checking me in. Very thorough in her presentation to me and made me feel very welcomed. Her customer skills are evident she gets and excellent rating. I learned a long time ago that People are not excellent because they achieve great things. They acheive great things because they choose to be excellent.
Thanks for the good service.

Room Tip: The whole hotel is great.
