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.
