“Private oasis inside hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

We stayed at this resort prior to our cruise leaving to Port Everglades.
Only reason I didnt give it a five star was due to Shuttle Service. When we arrived at the airport, I proceeded to call the hotel and advise them of our arrival. They said they would have a shuttle there shortly. After about 30 minutes, still no shuttle so I called again. Since we did not have a cell phone they told me to take a few taxi's and the hotel would re-imburse us. We did and they re-imbursed us immediately.
After that, the hotel was unique with a lovely indoor waterfall, patio, and a broadwalk feel. From the centre of hotel, you look up to all the hotel rooms surrounding you. During the night, it is all light up. Very nice! The Breakfast was awesome and exceeded our expectations. Also, very convenient that tons of great shopping stores all within walking from this hotel.

The best advantage is that hotel is close to airport and Port Everglades. Very busy hotel. Parking staff were very helpfull. Front desk personnel are very rushed due to the amount of check-ins. Rooms are average but comfortable. Try and get your room close to front desk or you will have a long walk for all hotel services. This as all Embassy suites offer mgr. reception and breakfast both were fair to average

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I'm terribly sorry that we couldn't make your stay more enjoyable. While our hotel can be very busy, we never want our guests to feel like their not our number one priority. Each interaction from staff should be personable and courteous and I regret that you did not experience that. It's nice to know that the location was convenient for your visit to the local attractions and valet staff were helpful. We appreciate your feedback and will continue to work with our team to ensure we're offering our true hospitality. We hope we have the chance to serve you again in the future.

Kind regards,

Don Friedman
General Manager

GREAT hotel. Great breakfast and fitness room. Close to everything you need: stores, marina, beaches....miles and miles of clean beaches just over the bridge. Close to marina (2 blocks). Would definitely go back.

Room Tip: all rooms looked good.

Stayed one night pre-cruise. Room was disappointing for $300. Chips, cracks and marks everywhere. No hot or warm water in shower but sink was piping hot. Basically you're paying for the free drinks and breakfast that's offered. Would not stay there again.

Beautiful lobby and very nice rooms, beds were comfortable, pizza was GREAT after arriving at 1030 pm. The extra sink is very handy if traveling with a child, when someone is needing privacy in the other room.
Very convenient if going on a cruise, restaurants, and some shopping within walking distance. The only big complaint I have is the bathroom was not thoroughly cleaned. There was a long, black, curly hair in the tub, and no one in my party has long black hair. ( I will carry Clorex on my next trip)
The staff was excellent, always very friendly and helpful.
Taxi service from airport to hotel $10.00, from hotel to cruise terminal $15.00.

The Embassy Suites was very average for the price of 240.00 a night. The rooms were very large but could use a better cleaning. Bedding was comfortable and having two sinks in the room plus the seating area was great. The elevators were very slow and at time took as long as 5 minutes to come. We tried to use the steps since we were on the third floor but they took you outside. Because of a convention in town breakfast was slow to get served. They should have had 2 lines open for service but with only one it was 8-12 people deep at times ordering. The food was very average at best. The managers evening reception was very nice with free drinks and snacks. Very nice pool area with nice landscaping. Valet service was very good.
Internet extra
Shuttle service was 7.00 a person
Valet parking 20.00 a night

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the pool or the front of the hotel.

I sincerely apologize for the long wait you experienced at breakfast and slow elevators. We are reevaluating staff levels to prevent line bunches and optimize service efficiency.

Our family of 5 adults stayed here the night before our cruise. We booked the cruise package. Upon arrival into the airport I called the hotel and they sent the shuttle. We waited about 30 minutes BUT we were the only ones waiting for the Embassy Suites shuttle and there were hoards of people battling for other hotel shuttles. Some giving up and taking taxis. So even though we waited it was pretty painless. Check in was smooth and we went to the lounge for a late dinner. The lounge closed at 10pm and we were being rushed to order. I thought this was pretty early for a hotel restaurant and quite a few people were turned away after 10pm. We booked the 2 room suite as Fort Lauderdale can be quite expensive. I should have read more clearly that it was a 2 room suite and not a 2 bedroom suite. It was really cramped for 5 adults. The main bedroom had 2 double beds and there was a double pull out couch in the living area space which was very very very uncomfortable. Next time I won't cheap out and we'll have to get 2 rooms! The rooms were dark and dingy but I guess overall fine for a late night arrival. We did have a little balcony overlooking the plaza next door so we could at least open the door for fresh air. I really liked that checkout wasn't until noon! The made to order breakfast was tasty but it was chaotic and took us about 20 min acting like vultures to grab a table. We did not use the amenities or pool but overall the hotel has a great Floridian feel. The atrium area was really nice to sit in and people watch and wait around til cruise time and we didn't have to stay in our cramped room. Publix, other shops, and restaurants are a 5 min walk. So location was cool for us Canadians looking to check things out and not having a car or a lot of time. I wouldn't be opposed to staying here again but I wouldn't seek this hotel out.... it would depend on what deals I could find for hotels in the area.
