Sawgrass Grand Hotel and Suites Sports Complex

Reviewed August 28, 2012

My family visited Ft. Lauderdale for the first time and we stayed at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites Sawgrass Mills for nine (9) days from August 13, 2012. The staff at the hotel was very warm and friendly and we felt very much at home during our stay. The hotel offers a shuttle service to the malls and nearby areas within five (5) miles from the hotel. We had booked a rental vehicle but eventually decided to use the shuttle which was efficient and the drivers Daryl and Mr. Henry were extremely pleasant and accommodating. We also didn't feel comfortable driving. We were able to get all our shopping done without any problems. My husband Don and I would like to thank the front desk staff Johnathan, Renee and others as well as Daryl and Mr. Henry for making our vacation a perfect one. The room was clean and the food was delicious. The location was close to the Sawgrass Mall and the Broward Mall and many fast food outlets. There is also a Walmart and Lowe's within walking distance from the hotel. We have absolutely no complaints only great things to report on. My 10 year old son had a fantastic time which we were hoping for. He has already asked to return next year. We highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a perfect vacation in the right location. We will definitely return!!

This place was okay, definitely not my first choice but it was a quick trip and my other choices were either full or too expensive. Given the choice, i wouldn't make it a top priority to stay here but if theres nothing else then it will definitely suffice. Good location, friendly enough staff and decent rooms. What else do you really need for a 2 or 3 day stay eh.

The facade was beautiful and so was the room. The only drawbacks were the business center and front desk service. The computer in the business center could not print pdf docs. I had to ask the front desk clerk who was reluctant to print it. I had to ask her three times. That placed a damper on my stay.

I recently moved my parents to an assisted living facility in Lauderhill, Florida. So now instead of a comfy second bedroom in their golf community villa, I had to find myself alternate digs when I come down south to visit them. The Holiday Inn & Suites Sawgrass is the nicest spot in my parents' new 'hood. While I'm purdy pleased with all aspects of my new "home away from home" the best part has been making friends with fellow travelers at the lobby bar hosted by Linda Homfeld. She is incredible. A friendly face, a warm voice and very, very friendly. And...after only one evening she remembered my drink, my parents' situation and where I am from. Something I can NOT say about my local dry cleaner, bank teller or Starbucks barista back at home in Toronto whom I see almost every day! The front desk personnel also, after only one visit welcomed me back and after two visits I began getting upgrades and a goody bag of Miss Vicky's chips and a bottle of water. While the rooms are pretty standard Holiday Inn, I absolutely look forward to checking in with Linda at the end of each day where this week (and last) we watched the Olympics together. So if you find yourself in this neck of the woods, and....you are a Detroit Tigers fan make sure you stay at the Holiday Inn & Suites Sawgrass and tell Linda I sent you.

Traveling on business. All I want is a clean room and a nice place to catch a decent meal and a cold beer when I return to the hotel. This hotel did not disappoint. The best part was Linda at the bar, a fellow Detroiter and Tiger fan. Great service and conversation. Linda made us all feel like old friends, although we all only just met.

This hotel is perfect for sports, shopping (so close to Sawgrass Mills!), and The Bank Atlantic Center concerts and shows. Upon arrival, we were treated like we were "special." The staff at this hotel obviously take pride in their jobs and making everyone feel welcome and oh so comfortable! Everything is newly remodeled and spotless! Will definitely be going back for another "pampered weekend!" Awesome experience!

This hotel was fantasic!! The front desk staff was very nice and very accommodating. Check in was fast and easy. Arlene who works at the front desk was very helpful and went above and beyond to make my stay as pleasant as possible. She signed me up for Priority Club and gave me a little goodie bag with chips, chocolate and water and also gave me a $10 voucher to use at the restaurant or bar. The room was very spacious and up to date. The bed was extremely comfortable and quite. I had breakfast at the restaurant and the food was delicious! Scott was my server and he was great! I didn't get to use all the amenities this hotel offer like the shuttle service or the pool but the pool looked lovely! Overall, my stay was great and I will definitely be staying here next time I'm in town!
