Stayed here for 1 night following our cruise. Although we arrived at 10:00 check in was easy and we had a room immediately with an upgrade to floor 10, we had expected to have to wait until at least 14:00. The reception staff were helpful and pleasant, as we had a late transatlantic flight the next day they extended out... More

I recently stayed here for a quick over night stay with my family. We had dinner downstairs in the lobby and it was very good. The front desk staff was very friendly, the proximity to the airport was maybe 10 min max. The beds are comfortable also. I would stay here again for sure.

A pleasant hotel in a great location just a few minutes from Port Everglades. Service was good and the rooms comfortable. Several restaurants are within a few minutes walk. Good for cruises, but would not otherwise stay here.

Greetings, Thank you for staying with us during your recent trip to Fort Lauderdale.

Could use an upgrade. Stayed here on business and found it to be serviceable and clean. There are some good restaurants nearby. The breakfast area gets crowded prior to a cruise departure. I don't know that I'd rush back here, but there were no major issues.

We visit several hotels each year for training and seminars. We've been to others in Fort Lauderdale in the past few years as well. This is the best experience we've had in a while. The property worked well for our purpose. It was convenient to the airport, clean, pleasant, nice, upscale and affordable. I'm recommending that we come back.
