Embassy Suites by Hilton Fort Lauderdale 17th Street
Ranked #39 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 5 November 2012

The Embassy Suites Ft. Lauderdale is the go-to hotel for pre-cruise stays; it's not far from the cruise terminal, close to restaurants and shops, includes transfers to the pier, manager's cocktail party, and big breakfast, and the staff is genuinely helpful. I stayed here about ten years ago, and found it more in the above-average rating; but! it's occupancy is so high, and the property is so heavily used that everything about it is shabby. The line for check-in lasts over half an hour, the carpets are worn and stained, the breakfast is worse than the first day on a cruise buffet (no one knows what they're doing, it's jam packed, and all the guests act as if this is the last meal they'll ever have). In the room the noise from the atrium penetrates the doors, and the air conditioning is rattly and loud, the bathroom has rust stains wherever water hit the fixtures, so the tub, the shower wall, the sink and the toilet were all brown.
We stayed here in December, so If the management has been able to address the problems since then, like Roseann Roseannadana, never mind! If they haven't been able to address the drawbacks, I'll be looking for alternate accommodations.

hotelmanager1100, Manager at Embassy Suites by Hilton Fort Lauderdale 17th Street, responded to this reviewResponded 11 November 2012

Thank you for your response. I noticed that you stayed with us last December and I am happy to say that we have made a lot of improvements since then as seen by our recent reviews in November. We have reorganized our breakfast area improving the flow on busy weekends. We have spent a great deal of time focusing on maintaining and cleaning the suites. The staff has been energized to take care of every need of each guest. Plus our great location close to the Port and within walking distance of over 40 restaurants and shops makes us the perfect pre and post cruise hotel. I hope you do visit us again soon, so we can show you that we can meet your expectations. Thank you again for your comments.

Embassy Suites is located very near the Fort Lauderdale Int. Airport and is a good choice for
anyone with an early flight or taking a cruise. This is not a beach front property, but convenience is the #1 attraction.
Roms are all suites so you do have additonal room. Rooms could use an update and are quite noisy. We were on the 11th
floor and still heard city traffic.

Room Tip: They do have a great morning breakfast.

I travel to Fort Lauderdale often for business and always stay at the Embassy. This is BY FAR this best hotel I have ever stayed at and will continue to stay there in the future. The staff is amazing and very friendly, all of your needs/wants will be fulfilled. The location is great for any convention, boat show, downtown, the beach, or water taxi pick up locations. The hotel has a beautiful atrium and an even more beautiful pool. They offer a 2 hour "Happy Hour" at the E-Spot lounge, excellent breakfast and easy parking. Rooms are very spacious and very clean. I love this place.

This is the preferred hotel for my company when doing business in Fort Lauderdale so I stay here often. The staff is always very kind and helpful. The breakfast is generally pretty good and the manager's reception is nice as well. I'm a HH member so it's always nice to have a little package waiting for me in my room when I arrive. The hotel is just a few miles away from the beach, which I love and surrounded by shops and restaurants.

This facility was by far, the nicest Embassy Suites, as well as the nicest hotel that I have stayed
at in Florida. Great employees, super clean, very well managed and convenient location. Walking distance to great restaurants and a quick ride to the airport. Perfect location.

Stayed here for the 2012 Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show and overall the hotel was good if a little overpriced... there is no view to speak of but the rooms are as to be expected, clean and well equiped! Behind the hotel are a few shops and a sports bar called Duffy's. The hotel offers a convenient shuttle to the boat show for $7 and Valet is $20 per night. There is a decent complimentary breakfast with all the usual fare and an omelete station!
