“Phenomenal for a Holiday Inn”
Reviewed February 21, 2011

Stayed for a total of 5 nights, and had some reservations when I booked regarding location and hotel category. However, I was pleasantly surprised. Check-in went smoothly (thanks a million to Tammy and her staff). The front desk team, aside from Tammy especially Malorie and Kristina, were extremely helpful, professional and courteous. The room was great including tiled double-size shower stall and Tempurpedic mattress. My only complaint would have been that the carpet showed stains and signs of wear and tear.
Guest laundry facilities are provided on the 3rd floor, the hotel bar and lounge is great, and they serve drinks to the fantastic pool area as well. Ate dinner there once, and the Ribeye was nice.
Small glitch on my invoice upon checkout was quickly rectified by Gulcan, the sales manager.
There is a small shopping plaza about 3/4 mi down Sheridan Rd, and easily walkable. Aside from Starbucks and a Sushi place, there is a great little sports bar/restaurant, a true local hangout, called Shenenigan's. You have to try it!
Thanks everyone at the Holiday Inn Ft. Lauderdale Airport for making my stay wonderful! I can't wait to be back!

This hotel exceeded expectations. Great room. Very clean. Nice staff. Just stayed for one night since it was close to the airport but would definitely come back and stay for a while!

This Holiday Inn sits very close to I-95, but the highway noise isn't heard in the room. We arrived late at night, and were greeted by a jovial, almost too jovial, desk clerk who gave us the keys to our queen-queen room. The air conditioner was noisy and the air blew directly onto the bed. The room was clean, with the sink area outside the little room that contained the toilet and shower. This configuration didn't bother us, but some family we were traveling with hated this about the room, and with light sleepers, when someone washed their hands, the other people sharing the room woke up. My husband, son, and I sleep heavily, so this was not an issue. The shower pressure was good, the room kept clean, the bed was moderately comfortable, the pillows were too soft, but the rest of the furnishings were fine. Unlike most hotels in this class, there's an actual closet instead of just an opening with a bar for clothes. There's a microwave and a 'fridge, both hidden in a dresser-type cabinet.
The pool/hot tub area are very attractive and would be idyllic, except the highway is right next to it. There's a waterfall that helps to drown out the traffic noise a bit, but don't expect to have a decent conversation by the pool.
We didn't eat at the hotel, so can't comment on the food. There is free coffee set up by the elevator in the morning, which was very nice.
There's not much walking distance from the hotel, except for Denny's and a gas station. A short (3 minutes) drive away there's shopping and a movie theater and restaurants like Sweet Tomatoes and Red Lobster.
We felt secure and welcome, and while this isn't a property I'd seek out, I would be happy to stay here again.
The airport is about 15 minutes from the airport (depending on traffic) and cruise port. It would be a good choice for a pre or post-cruise stay. We felt our room rate ($128) was reasonable for the location and quality of the hotel.

Our stay at the Holiday inn in Hollywood, Florida near Fort Lauderdale was our first stay in a Holiday inn in quite some time. We were quite surprised at the upscale nature of the facilities, expecting a more "no frills" experience. We enjoyed the pool and the hot tub which was kept open later than the posted hours for us. The staff met every request we made including printing off map quest directions, providing me with a very nice razor at the front desk as I forgot to bring one and also suggesting local eateries and destinations. Not to mention it is very close to a I-95 (a major highway) and is within a half an hour drive to both Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The hot breakfast buffet was a very reasonable $10 and the lobby was stocked with fresh coffee and newspapers every morning. Non-smokers will enjoy an entirely smoke free experience. Finally the room was clean and well maintained with a large television which is always nice. Overall we would highly recommend these accommodations for all kinds of travelers visiting this area.

Convenient location with free shuttles to both Fort Lauderdale airport and the Port (where cruises depart from). A "passing-through" feel to the place as many were clearly staying one night between flights and cruises and quite a while to get a taxi from reception. All in all, a safe stopover option. Nearby Hollywood beach area is ok for a couple of hours - if you have longer, head for Miami! Otherwise, the swimming pool at the hotel is very inviting too (towels provided).

Rooms have a wonderful firm foam mattress...sleeping is a dream.
Location is near the airport, but not much around hotel to eat.
Pool area looked good, but was only there from 11:00 pm to 9:00 am so did not use it.
The free shuttle from the airport took forever to pick us up...that was a downer.

We called for the hotel shuttle from the airport as soon as we had our luggage and it was just a short wait until the van arrived to pick us up and take us to the hotel. We stayed here for just 1 night as we were leaving for a cruise the next morning. The front desk staff was very friendly and arranged our transfer to the pier for the next morning when we checked in. Everything went very smoothly. The room was very clean and comfortable, there is a fridge in the room, the bed was great - no complaints. There is a restaurant on site that serves breakfast & dinner ( a little pricey- but not too bad). There is a Denny's Restaurant just across the street. There is also a bar that serves drinks, burgers and pizzas but it didn't open early enough for us..we got in at about 3 p.m. on a Saturday and would have liked to have gotten a beer right after we checked in. We talked to a few people and they told us about the gas station just outside the hotel that we could walk to where we could buy a few cans so that's what we did. (My suggestion would be to open the bar earlier!) The pool & hot tub area of the hotel was all very well kept up and was a very nice place to sit and chat with others. All in all it is a very nice place to stay while waiting for your cruise!
