We stay at the Hampton Inn Fort Lauderdale Downtown City Center (http://www.hamptoninnftlauderdale.com/). They have breakfast included and a cruise package with two one-way transportation to Port Everglades and parking during the cruise to up to 14 days. A cab from the airport will cost you about $25.

Take the advice from SocialG with a grain of salt since all he/she recommends are Hampton inn properties in all of the 27 postings under the name. The airport is close to the cruise port. About a $15 cab ride shared by all. If you want to be able to walk to a few restaurants and stores, stay on 17th street close to the port. The free shuttle is no big deal since the cab fare is so inexpensive.

So you noticed it too JD! I pointed it out in a previous post and the poster replied that it was just because he/she was a Hilton Honors member and only knew those hotels. HOWEVER, the fact that these identical replies are posted very quickly every time someone seems to inquire about cruise accommodations regardless of how they ask their question on this and several other forum locations , convinces me this poster has some other interest in/association with this Hampton and is monitoring posts to reply to- and I too would not recommend the Downtown Hampton Inn as a pre cruise hotel- the sidewalks roll up there at night and weekends and the area is deserted and spooky and has several homeless wanderers as it is near the bus station. Not first on my list-really more suitable for M-F businessmen with appointments at government agencies who have to be there.. The hotel itself is nice inside- the location not so hot- anyone with Hilton Honors points should look at other options IMO.

YOU would stay at the Rodeway Inn because it is your place of business.

Perhaps you should work on customer service, etc at your

Rodeway Inn so you could show better reviews on here instead of promoting it on the forums. Promoting one's business on here is strictly against t/a guidelines.
