Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Ft. Lauderdale Airport/Cruise
Ranked #12 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 May 2014

I did a lot of research before booking this hotel, and was not disappointed by my decision at all. From checking-in right through until checkout all the staff we came across were very helpful and extremely friendly, more so than a Holiday Inn Express we stayed in, in Miami 18 months ago. The room was as expected, for UK standards very roomy. It was very clean and we found the bed comfortable but not the pillows! Sorry HI! that's the only reason I didn't give a 5 rating. Breakfast was fine, plenty available and more than met our expectations. We weren't sure where to go for our one day stay in Fort Lauderdale before joining our ship, the front desk were great and gave us some sound advice on where to head to- thank you. The shops opposite the hotel were ideal for a bit of browsing and to also get a few pre-cruise toiletries. And I have to say we also had a fast food meal there too, well why not it you're going on a cruise?! There is a Walgreens(bit like Wilkinsons/Boots for you UK people), further down the road, a bit of a walk but we managed it ok, I love a good browse there too! The hotel pool area was very well kept and although we didn't go in the pool we spent an hour or so sat by it relaxing. The shuttle service to the port was extremely efficient. I know others have said before me that's it's a hassle but I can only go by our experience and we thought it was excellent for $8 per person-saved a lot of hassle. So, overall - great stay and would definitely stay again.

Stayed here two nights pre cruise. It is not in a great location and getting a taxi was not always easy. The breakfast was just acceptable, nothing special. The room was spacious, but again nothing wonderful.
Our stay was average, staff did not go our of their way to help, seemed very disinterested in the guests. We arrived late evening and there was nowhere close to eat. We made contact with the hotel before travelling and we were told food would be available, not true.
I think that for what we paid it was not good value, but from others American guests we discovered they received much better rates than us so I felt a bit cheated!

Room Tip: Make sure you get the best room rate.

To start, I am very picky about hotels. I research everything before booking. My husband and I were staying in the Palm Beach area but had and early morning flight out of FLL. We decided to spend the night to make them morning of the flight easier. Check-in here was very smooth; we were able to check-in early. This hotel is easy to access the port as well as restaurants and the beach if you have a car. The room was very clean and that is at the top of my list. The front desk staff was very nice and accommodating; the paper was out of the printer in the business center and they supplied some without out question so I could print boarding passes. The bed was slightly harder than I like and the pillows a bit lumpy but sleep for me the night before a flight is usually non-existent so I would call this somewhat success. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Away from the ice machine.

We stayed at this hotel on the night before our cruise. Overall a very good experience. Shuttle was prompt at the airport, room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was good, they made our shuttle arrangements to the cruise shim and to top it all off, we had a bad I phone cable and they gave us one from a box of cables collected from items left in the rooms. It totally made our day. Thank you again.

Enjoyed my stay after cruising in May. I met Jason checking into hotel very pleasant and enjoyable young man. As I was leaving to go home the next day I met another pleasant employee by the name of Danelia who made my wait for the shuttle enjoyable as well. These two along with the upkeep of the hotel will have me coming back for future stays. If I knew how nice and clean this location was pre cruise I would have stayed then. You live and learn and I've learned that I will be back for more. Keep up the good work and it's the best Express I've set foot in. Thanks for making me feel at home Guys!!

We stayed here before and after our cruise in March. The staff was very nice and the hotel was clean. The staff allowed us to check in early the day we returned from our cruise, which was so nice. We dined at the German and Thai restaurants in the neighborhood and were happy with both. Also, a strip mall with a grocery store is right across the street. If you are cruising, I recommend just taking a taxi to the ship. It is cheaper and easier than taking the shuttle/bus service.
