Holiday Inn Express and Suites Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport

Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name.

We had a group reservation for a sports team of high-school aged players. After exchanging a few emails with the hotel I was sure right away that everything would work out. The staff greeted me by name each time I came to the desk and was very friendly and understanding of the challenges of herding teenagers.

The rooms were clean and bright. The breakfast was nutritious and had something for every taste. We enjoyed the pool, the fitness room, and all of the amenities they had to offer. The microwave and fridge in every room was perfect for giving the players snacks to keep their active bodies in tip-top shape.

Thank you to Glenys, Aaron, Mike, Valerie and everyone else there who made our stay so easy. If we are back in the Fort Lauderdale area, we would definitely return.

This is a business hotel in an office park, but far exceeded our expectations just passing thru on the first night of our vacation. The well-appointed rooms and common areas were extremely clean, and we never passed an employee who didn't greet us and ask how we were doing. In fact, the general manager of the hotel showed up at breakfast (also fabulous, and included in the less than $100/nt price) and visited with everyone eating to see how their stays were. I was impressed, and I've stayed at a lot of hotels on several continents. We will definitely stay there again next time in Ft Lauderdale.

Room Tip: Pick a room on the back, away from the street and above the parking lot. Finnegan's Restaurant...

If you are flying in and out of Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport and need to stay overnight this hotel is a 2 minute drive from the airport. It appears to be brand new, the staff is very, very customer focused and the complimentary breakfast had more offerings than any other complimentary breakfast I have experienced.

My friends and I (total of 4) stayed here Thursday and Friday night. We stayed in the suite in room #101. Wow! The room was very large, enough space for us and we loved every minute of our stay. The room was extremely clean, comfortable and updated nicely. The breakfast was excellent. My friends said they had the best coffee they ever had from a hotel. I loved the automatic pancake maker which seems to be a new trend with Holiday Inn hotels. They had plenty of hot choices. We felt welcomed from the first moment we arrived to the last moment before leaving. They truly care about their guests!

Room Tip: Get the suite, especially if there is 4 or more. We could brush our teeth in the kitchen sink while...

From the moment we drove up to the moment we left, we loved this hotel. It is clean inside and out and in a safe, well-lit area. The entire staff -- front desk, food service, and housekeeping -- made it a point to make us feel welcome and appreciated. The hotel was spotless and well appointed. Our room was attractive and quiet, the bed extremely comfortable, the temperature well modulated, the bathroom clean and well stocked, the Internet service fast and easy to use, and the appliances up to date and in perfect working order. And the complimentary breakfast was wonderful -- fresh, appetizing, and delicious. What more can one ask for? I was really impressed with the appearance and operation of this hotel and compliment the manager and staff for a job well done..

Room Tip: Fifth floor facing rear was great.

I have been generally very impressed with the makeovers of various Holiday Inn's and stay there regularly. This location has hit one out of the park. I was in town for an NFL game w/my son and chose this location based on other TA reviews...clearly, those reviews understated the hotel. From the warm front desk greeting and quick check-in, to the absolutely spotless and well maintained room, I can only offer kudo's to the staff. Bedding was comfy and crisp. Housekeeping meticulously made up the room, and notwithstanding our luggage, the room was pristine and arrival-ready the following day. Provided that one has transportation, (as restaurants are some distance away), this is the place to stay in FLL or MIA. I can strongly recommend this hotel!
