Holiday Inn Express and Suites Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We decided to stay here one night prior to our cruise based on the excellent reviews and price. Staff at check in and all others we encountered were very kind and helpful. We rented a car for the night based on previous reviews and it did make things easier. The hotel is not far from FLL and easy to find except it could use a larger sign to mark its entrance. Parking was very well lit and safe. We booked a suite for the extra bed/space and it was great. The bathroom is huge and the room was exceptionally clean. There were plenty of pillows in both firm and soft which is a nice bonus, as well as triple sheeted bed.My husband and sons said the breakfast downstairs was very good as well. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would definitely stay here next time we are in Fort Lauderdale.

Hello NYFLORIDIAN !
Thanks so much for all your comments and the Great Review !!! Glad you rented a car to get around. We are a bit out of the city area (only a mile or 2 from some really good restaurants). So glad your sons and husband like the breakfast. We look forward to welcoming you the next time you visit Fla.
PS..We try to live by this simple motto...'Smile and Be Kind to Everyone' !! Glad our staff was just that ....
Safe Travels, Take Care

I was looking for a hotel in Ft. Lauderdale near I-95 so i could easily visit relatives to the south in Miami and others to the N. in Palm Beach -- and not have to pay for hotel parking. The positive reviews of this property hold up: nice and efficient staff, clean rooms, clean facilities, gym with working equipment, ample complimentary breakfast. Overall good value. Easy to get to Ft. Lauderdale airport and the cruise ships, BUT without the chaos of hotels right by the airport and port.

We arrived later on Sat night to spend the night before boarding our cruise. It was a little far from the Port with no shuttle but the hotel was very nice. Clean, comfortable and acomodating. We had not had supper and they gave us a menu from an Italian Restaurant that would deliver. They also had a variety of microwave meals in the freezer in the lobby and with a microwave and fridge it was a no brainer for me as I have diabetes.
The breakfast the next morning was hot with scrambled eggs, bacon etc etc. Very very good.
They found us transport to the dock which arrived promptly on the time specified. All in all a wonderful start to our vacation.

We just needed a place for one night lay over. This place was great. The room was very clean. Hotel was quiet. The bed was comfortable. The staff was excellent. We were greated warmly and check in was fast and easy. The pool was nice but a bit chilly. Fitness room had lots of equipment to choose from and it all worked. What really made our stay was Jo Jean, the manager. She was so friendly, helpful and kind. We would stay again.

We just came back from our 7 night cruise on the Allure of the Seas. We did the express check out so we were off the ship by 7:30 am to avoid the massive rush. We jumped in a cab and canned it to the Holiday Inn Express it cost approx. 42 dollars from the port.

When we arrived we were greeted by Arron at the front desk. I gave him my booking number to confirm and he told me that check on times were 3 pm. It was about 30 past 8 in the morning. I asked him if we could keep out bags there. He kindly replied with an "of course" and put our bags in a locked up room. He told me he would try his best to get is in to a room by 11 am. We were very happy to hear this cause we definitely didn't want to wait tile 3 pm. Breakfast was being served which Arron offered us to help ourselves with as we waited for our room.

I can't say enough to thank Arron for his kind hospitality during our stay at the Holiday Inn. It's really nice to have someone who seems to love his job and go out of his way to help you. Arron was able to check us in at 10:20 am which was a huge relief as we were exhausted and just wanted to take a nap. I hope Arron doesn't get in trouble for check us in so early but I just wanted to write about how accommodating he was. Thank you Arron for making us Holiday Inn customers for life.

The rooms were very clean and large. Great value for the money we paid. Breakfast in the morning was excellent and the staff running the breakfast did a great job keeping the tables clean and items stocked up. The choices were more then other standard continental breakfasts.

Check out was a breeze had a bill under the room door in the morning showing charges. Just had to hand in room keys (which are just cards) and that was it.

I don't stay at Holiday Inns at all but this stay has changed my thoughts and I would stay here again and recommend to anyone. The service cannot be matched. These days hard to find good quality service.

Dear Joey C from Ft McMurray,

WOW..Thank You for the wonderful review. We do try to accommodate all our guests with specail requests. (early check-ins, etc) Arron is an outstanding staff member and was the 'Manager on Duty', so he was just doing what we do, when possible. If we get guests checking out early in the am, we are able to clean and get you in. So glad we made your stay a great one. Glad that you can have confidence staying at Holiday Inn Express. Come back to see us on your next trip to Fort Lauderdale.
Thank You Again,

Stayed at this location for a few nights prior to our cruise out of Port Everglades. As a Platinum member we were upgraded to a suite which was nice and definitely appreciated. The room was clean and comfy and the front desk staff helpful. I would stay again if ever in the area.
