Nice hotel, very typical for a Hyatt Place. Service was very good. Free breakfast was typical.

Did not give an "excellent" rating as the location is not super-great, but was adequate for what we needed. We were just spending the night before getting onto a cruise ship. For that it was fine, but not sure I'd go there to vacation.

Also, they charged for parking, and not really an area that I would expect to have a parking charge. Felt that was a bit excessive and they were just trying to get more money out of me.

We stayed two nights at the end of September before a cruise. Arrived at the airport and proceeded to the kiosk for hotel shuttle phones. A short wait, and we were delivered by a friendly driver to the Hyatt Place in their complimentary shuttle.

We arrived with a full shuttle, so check-in took a little, but the personal service that everyone was receiving made it worthwhile. The property is clean, up to date, conveniently located near restaurants and shopping, and the on-property bar was a plus. The breakfast was good for a self-serve style complimentary breakfast.

Our room was clean and modern.

The staff was friendly, and knowledgable about the area and things to do.

Although we were told by others that a cab would be more convenient and cost less, we signed up for the shuttle to the port that is provided on-site by an outside contractor for $7 each person. Because the port was so busy when we arrived, we waited in traffic for quite a while trying to get to the cruise terminal drop off area. I mention this because a couple that I talked to who took a cab were charged a fee for every minute they sat in traffic waiting to get to the drop off point at the terminal. When it was all said and done, they paid the same amount for 2 people in a cab as we did for 4 people in the shuttle.

We recommend the Hyatt Place 17th Street Convention Center for a pre and/or post-cruise stay in Fort Lauderdale.

I flew into FLL the day before my cruise. I love Hyatt Places and this location did not disappoint. It was on par with all the other Hyatt Places I have visited. LOVE THEM!!

Sunday I was being rushed and left my cell phone in my room. I didn't notice it missing until I had arrived to the port. I immediately returned to the hotel with a cab waiting outside to search for my cell phone. The front desk guy asked the room attendant to take me to my room to check for my phone. Sure enough it was on the bar right where I left it. The room attendant just earned a fat tip from me. Phew!! I was so relieved to find my phone.

Thanks Hyatt for setting high standards on customer service.

I have been eager to write this review since day 1 of staying here. My husband and I checked in to the hotel on Sept. 25. We were warmly greeted by Gino and he made us feel at home by recommending Fort Lauderdale restaurants, attractions, and general tips/advice. I was impressed by the size of the room and open concept layout. The only drawback of the room was that I discovered little red ants in the closet and on the bathroom sinks. My husband called the front desk to report the problem and Stu went above and beyond to accommodate us. He helped us move into a new room and gave us 2 complimentary drink vouchers

The location of the hotel is prime. Since we wanted to save $$$, we picked up a week's worth of groceries at the Publix right across the street. There are also various restaurants that are easy to walk to (be sure to try Mezzaluna's next store). The front desk will give you two complimentary drinks to Mezzaluna's if you ask. We drove to the beach, which was about a 5 minute drive. You can also take the nearby trolley for a very low price.

Breakfast was filling and delicious! I especially enjoyed the hot breakfast sandwiches and pancakes. The pool was empty every time we swam in it. The hotel kept it clean and pristine. I was very satisfied with the value of the amenities this hotel provided! The only drawback was the $5 parking.

The real gem of this hotel is definitely the staff. They go above and beyond to make their guests feel at home and provide top notch service. I would like to give huge kudos to Stu, Gino, and Conner for their professionalism and hospitality. You can tell they work very hard and love their job. They were always friendly, helpful, and accommodating. There were a few minor incidents that would have lowered my score to a 4, but the staff corrected them instantly. That is true service.

Thank you to the Hyatt for making our 1 year wedding anniversary a time we will never forget! We greatly appreciate you making us feel at home on our vacation. I cannot wait to come back soon!

This was my 2nd experience of a Hyatt Place hotel in Florida, and once again it didn't disappoint.

You get a lot of room for not a lot of money, which provides great value.

The only downside on this occassion was waiting 50 mins for the Shuttle bus from the airport, despite 2 calls to the hotel. (To be fair, staff were very apologetic)

Highly recommend.

Stayed here in May 2013. As usual, Hyatt Place delivers a consistently great experience. Staff was friendly, and hotel is kept clean. They have a free shuttle which will take you to nearby restaurants. Staff went out of their way to give us recommendations of nearby sight-seeing. Even printed us maps with directions waiting at the front desk for us. My husband and I love the Hyatt Place for its great value terrific service.
