Embassy Suites by Hilton Fort Lauderdale 17th Street
Ranked #37 of 128 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 25 November 2012

This hotel was wonderful. There was an indoor atrium with waterfalls and bridges - this is where the breakfast is served. During my stay, a wedding party was taking pictures on one of the bridges. It had many ammenities and the beach was within walking distance. There were many restaurants and shops in the area.

As the title suggests I stayed here prior to a cruise departing Port Everglades. Everything about the experience, from the staff to the accommodation was exceptional.

Arrival and check in was swift, necessary considering the steady stream of arrivals from all corners of the world. My room was allocated on the 11th floor, with a Harbour View and our request was met. Stunning views out towards the port.

The accommodation itself is large and spacious, with separate living and sleeping areas. An excellent bed ensured a great night sleep.

The Manager's Reception each evening is a novel treat with free cocktails/beers and the breakfast buffet was ample, well stocked and provided variety.

All in all, a great place to stay.

If you don't mind not staying at a hotel right on the beach, this is the place to stay, especially pre or post-cruise. It is conveniently located near the airport and cruise terminal and definitely a great bargain for the price of a room with all the free perks. First off, all suites offer two large rooms with one TV in each, a large sofabed, tons of electrical outlets, lots of lighting, three sinks, lots of mirrors, two phones & big table desk. We loved the free hot breakfast every morning and the daily two-hour free open bar with free snacks (pretzels, potato chips, popcorn, goldfish crackers, tortilla chips and dip). The location of this hotel is within walking distance to everywhere we needed to go for our cruise items -- wine outlet, Payless, CVS, Verizon, and more. Our stay was more enjoyable than we expected it would be and we would stay here again in a heartbeat. PS: Staff was very cordial, helpful and informative.

I selected this hotel for two reasons: it offered an affordable option for 6 people to share a room for a single pre-cruise night, and it had good reviews. (I always look for reviews!)

This place is absolutely amazing. The pool area is very nice, with theming and vegetation making it feel like a tropic oasis. You don't notice the adjacent parking lots and commercial locale! The breakfast is top of the line, and the atrium setting is delightful. I didn't get to the Manager's reception, but it looked like a great way to relax with friends. Hotel staff were without exception friendly and helpful.

Our room was on the 4th floor, and I was a bit concerned about noise from the atrium area, but it was very quiet. The space was perfectly adequate and we appreciated the little counter area with kitchenette facilities for a late night snack.

The location was perfect, a very short ride to the cruise terminal, and a good variety of shops on the block behind the hotel, including a Publix, and several places to eat, Loved the sports bar where we had dinner!

There were only two small negatives - don't expect that an adult can sleep in any comfort on the sofa bed. Usually true of any sofa bed, so not a real surprise. It would be fine for kids up to mid-teens, though. Also, the bathroom can only be accessed through the bedroom. This may or may not present a privacy issue for some travelers.

I would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone. It was great for our family, and exactly the kind of place I like to stay when travelling for business as well.

This Embassy suites is an older property. But, it has great character. The breakfast was a complete breakfast and included in the price, as was the evening Manager's Reception. The pool area is very tropical including a waterfall.

It is convenient to everything. The hotel offers it's own drivers and vehicles to take you to all the sights for a reasonable price, including the airport for $11.

The Embassy Suites has now become my go-to hotel for any city we visit, simply because we love breakfast included and they sure know how to do it :) The staff is very helpful, and there are several great restaurants in walking distance, there is also a Sun Trolley stop at the publix around the corner, and nightly Manager's reception. *One Tip* I'm not sure if this is a policy used by every hotel, but we reserved our rooms on our debit card and they put a $200 hold on our checking account at check-in. The front desk agent didn't ask for another card, so I'm not sure if we could have switched it at check-in, but you should call to clarify. We'll just use a credit card from now on.

Room Tip: Rooms on the left side of the hotel should have a view of the cruise ships in the marina nearby.
