Stayed here for a couple of nights before cruising out of Fort Lauderdale. Had to wait about 30 minutes at the airport for the free hotel shuttle; perhaps that was due to us arriving around 11 pm. There was some heavy wind the first night which rattled the window facing 17th Street. Slept fine after turning on the room's fan to drown out the noise. The free breakfast consisted of granola and cereal bars so we walked to a nearby restaurant for a real breakfast. Great location for walking to nearby eating establishments and shopping as well as an easy 20-30 minute to Fort Lauderdale beach. Arranged to have the hotel shuttle take us to the cruiseport. Not impressed to find out upon checkout that we would be charged $8 per person to travel such a short distance when the free trip from the airport was a longer ride.
We had a great rate that was much cheaper than the Holiday Inn Express next door. However, since we had to buy breakfast both mornings at nearby restaurants and had to pay to ride the shuttle to the cruiseport, I recommend staying at the HI Express (especially if you get a rate similar to Extended Stay America).
