First of all, I flew into FTL and made my way to the shuttle stop area. This area has a turn-around, where most of the hotel shuttle busses/vans stopped. I waited over 40 minutes for the Crowne Plaza van, just to see it pass by twice on the farhest outside lane- no where near the shuttle stop. I phoned the hotel to request pick-up twice also. After over an hour in the hot Florida sun, I took a taxi to the hotel.
The taxi dropped me right near at the front desk area. There was no Porter to assist with my bags, so I trudged along. At check-in I told the Clerk about the long wait for a shuttle that never stopped. She gave me coupons for 2 free drinks at the Bar.
The room was decent and clean with 2 queen beds and a sofabed. The size was good and the furniture contemporary, the colors were cool blues and greens. The bathroom was smallish but decent. Across from the bathroom was a half-size fridge, microwave and coffee/tea set-up.
As I had arrived before my sister and 2 nieces (that were driving), I went down to the Bar/Restaurant. I sat at a table and was promptly served by the waiter with a menu and glass of water. I requested a Margarita while I checked out the menu. It was mainly Latin dishes with some American dishes. I ordered steak tacos with rice and beans and the dish was very good, more like what I have eaten in Mexico. The drink was great also;)
Ater dinner, I checked out the hotel and the outdoor areas. There was a large seating are where you could see the port area. The pool was ok, medium-sized.
Overall, the stay was comfortable and convienent, beds were very comfy, shower pressure good, and the restaurant very good. I would stay there again if cruising out of Port Everglades

Room Tip: None of the veiws are great, so a higher up room is quieter.

Staff were very friendly & helpful. If need be, I'd definitely stay here again!!
I ate in the restaurant, the prices were fair and the food was deliciously appetizing in taste as well as appearance.
The pool is open 24hrs which made for great relaxation
Lastly, the room was above spectacularly clean. The bed was extremely comfortable & the lavender scented room made for a complete nights sleep!!

I just recently took one week eastern caribbean cruise. I flew in and stayed here for the night. This hotel was marvelous and very clean. The whole experience from shuttle service, check in, hotel staff, as well as bar and lounge was great. i truly wish i would have came a couples days earlier to enjoy my trip even more. Thanks Crowne Plaza, my vacation started out crummy before i arrived there.

We stayed one night prior to our cruise and the room was nice and large which accmodated the 4 of us well. The hotel feels clean and fresh, nice modern decor and really convenient to the port. Definately a nice option close to airport and port.

Room Tip: Large room with 2 beds…sofa bed was hard.

The crowne plaza is newly remodeled and is very convenient to the airport and cruise terminal they even have shuttles to the cruise terminal.

The hotel is newly remodeled and has very spacious rooms with nice beds, bathrooms and direct tv. There is a decent gym, pool and restaurant at the hotel is well. Parking is also $7.

You can also,walk to anthonys coal fired pizza which is a plus. The beach is pretty far away but for overnight stay for business or cruise vacation I definitely recommend it.

There really is nothing extra special to write about this hotel. It is in a great location for the Fort Lauderdale cruise port. We arrived in the early evening, had a very easy check in, given a nice cold bottle of water and got to a very clean room. The location of the hotel is in a very industrial area and there is really nothing to venture outside of the hotel to, so we just opted to have dinner at the hotel - kind of influenced by the free drink coupon we received when checking in. The food was decent although a bit pricey. In the morning they had a buffet again on the pricey side for what was available - however they do offer you fresh made eggs if what is available is not to your taste. Service in the restaurant was excellent. We were cruising out of Miami and arranged a shuttle privately although I do believe you could arrange something with the hotel. They have a nice waiting area in the lobby and the staff were excellent in letting us know that our shuttle had arrived. They also have a shuttle from the airport which we did not use and instead got a taxi at $15 for the two of us and our luggage.

This hotel is great. Very close to port for cruises and close to downtown lauderdale and beaches. The rooms are great and the hotel is nice. Upon check please ask for an upgrade you will likely get it.
