“Standard Pre cruise accommodation”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2014

Nice imposing facade with a front desk reminiscent of an auto rental desk. Lobby waiting area was very comfortable.

Tatiana, one of two front desk associates, was very friendly and competent. My check in was at 8 AM was smooth except there was no mention of an upgrade. When I asked I was told there was no chance even though I offered to wait until late in the day. Last month at the Washington D.C. Crowne Plaza I was upgraded to a beautiful one bedroom suite even though the city and hotel were jammed with 14,000 attendees to one of many conventions.

I called the phone operator from the airport for the airport at 6:15AM for the free shuttle service. Gerald (I think) assured me the driver would be "right there". At 7:45 AM I called again. The operator stated that the diver "was delayed by a train". At 7:15 the driver arrived telling me he starts work at 7AM and he saw no train. Take a cab...

The rooms are large and comfortable but decorated in aqua blue and green.... not attractive... the beds are very comfortable.

Bathrooms are very small.... You must close the door undertake any activity at the sink.

The resertaurant was average. Overall the hotel offers a satisfactory experience. I think it is most often used as a cruise stopover....

The hotel from the valet to the servers in the restaurant were very friendly and accommodating.

The showers are extremely large with no tubs. I found this an outstanding feature. Very spacious and SAFE.

Finally, if you are tv watcher you may be astonished by the dozens of QVC like channels. if you search and search you are likely to find your favorite cable station...

Room Tip: try for an executive room. they may have more accessible bathroom

We stayed at the crowne plaza hotel before our cruise and it was a great choice. They sent a shuttle to pick us up at the airport. We arrived very fast to the hotel where we had complimentary access to their restaurant upstairs the lunch was fantastic and there was a complimentary cocktail, or beer of your choice on the house no payment needed.

Our room was very clean you could eat of the sheets the bathroom was up to date and nice fixtures but the best part is at a cost for only $8 they take you right to port to meet the ship and the ship is so close to this hotel it's so convenient. I had a nice quiet stay no loud music i didn't even see who was next to my room. If i go to fort lauderdale again i will be sure to stay there. Also the staff was very nice and helpful! Thank you all.

Room Tip: Higher floors allow you to see the ship.

We were recommended by our tour operator and it tuned out to be a good location for a pre cruise stay, we had a very nice dinner and a nice breakfast, the staff were really helpful when we had an issue with a pre paid transfer, they contacted our operator in the UK and got it sorted.
The room was clean and comfortable but no view.
I would go back for a one night pre cruise anytime.

Room Tip: High floor would be best.

Tatyanna and her staff were great. We had a school group of six teenage girls and four staff staying here for one night before our flight home. Tatyanna moved us around at check in so that we were able to stay on one floor with rooms big enough to accommodate a rollaway in two of the rooms. She was also helpful in assisting us finding food delivery restaurants in the area. The pool is easily accessed on the 5th floor roof area. Hotel and pool were very clean. We were also pleasantly surprised when Tatyanna told us we could drop our rental vans(Hertz) at the hotel. That's a great perk, not having to drop at airport before your flight. The shuttle driver was courteous and friendly. He got all ten of us on the shuttle together with our luggage! I will always use this hotel when flying out of Ft Lauderdale area. Thank you again Tatyanna!

Stayed here for a pre-cruise night. We arrived around 11am and had to check our luggage in as a room wasn't available yet. The lobby was packed with guests checking out heading for the airport or cruise terminal.

[Room] Our 7th floor room was quite large - maybe 400 square feet. It was very colorful painted in blue and green. Everything was new and modern. The bathrooms were very chic and had a nice shower. Rooms are well insulated from outside noise but we could hear slamming doors and vacuuming from the hallways in the morning. Not a big deal unless you're a light sleeper.

[Amenities] Theres a nice lap pool on the 5th floor balcony with plenty of chairs and seating on the deck. The whole time we were there, didn't see anyone make use of it. Breakfast at Kikis in the morning was buffet style for $15. It was just an average breakfast but given the fact there wasn't many dining options in the area, it was acceptable.

The hotel itself offers a free airport shuttle which we took advantage of. They also offer a paid shuttle to the cruise ship terminal at $8 per person. For 2 or more people, I wouldn't recommend this since a cab is about $10. This also saves you the hassle of waiting around with everyone else (the lobby was packed with people waiting for the shuttle). We just hopped in a cab and bypassed the crowds and for a lower price.

[Service] The staff were very friendly and attentive. They were happy to hold our bags before check in, call us cabs, and point us to nearby attractions.

[Location] While the hotel is conveniently located near the port, there isn't much in terms of nearby food or shopping. 6 blocks north, theres the 17th street stores or its a $15 cab ride to las olas beach area.

[Final Thoughts] Conveniently located clean hotel which is great for a one night stay. For extended stays, I'd probably stay a little closer to the action.

Stayed April 2014, travelled as a couple

From the moment we stepped foot into the hotel, we were treated like honored guests; all due to the gentleman at the front desk, Carl. He was very friendly and helpful in answering our questions. He noticed that it was only my wife and I so he changed our original double queen room to a king with a view of the pool. He also gave us a great recommendation to eat at Anothony's Pizza and setup a shuttle to get us to the cruise docks the following morning. Lastly, when we got to the room, we received a call from Carl to check if everything was ok. We were given five star service at 3.5+ star hotel which was awesome.

As for amenities, the pool was decent although there was some road noise from 84, the gym serviced its purpose for a quick workout, and the free drink with a meal purchase at the restaurant was an added bonus.

I would stay here again the next time I go cruising.
