We stayed before and after a cruise from Ft. Lauderdale. Excellent location, close to the cruise port and in a nice neighborhood. Staff was very nice. Very efficient shuttle service to and from the airport. Don't miss walking by the cooking school which is nearby. Glass windows on the front of the building allow you to see the students hard at work in their white chefs outfits. The worst thing I can say about the hotel is the vending machine didn't take my dollar bill and they only had Pepsi products. I would definitely recommend this hotel. We used a taxi to go to the port as we had four persons. It was cheaper than the shuttle.
