“Could use an update”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

This is an older hotel that could really use a decor update. It's a typical atrium style all-suite property with fountains and plants in the center, and two-room suites with a living room in front and bedroom in the back. Though the rooms were spacious, it was all too obvious that this was a very well-used older property. Paint was chipped in corners (I don't usually notice a little here and there, but this was very noticeable), curtains and furniture looked very 90s, and everything in general just appeared very dated.

The bed was also a bit of a problem, a King bed which had a serious scoop in the mattress from where single sleepers would sleep. Not too big a deal (I just slept on the opposite side of the bed), but they could use a mattress turn once in a while. Saw some different colored hairs on the ceiling of the shower, and the tub took a while to drain. The air conditioning was the most annoying of all...unlike most hotels which allow you to run the fan constantly (even when not cooling), this one would repeatedly shut off after a few minutes. When the fan wasn't running, you could easily hear noise from all over the hotel. I didn't mind the traffic noise from outside (though if you do mind it, this is not the hotel for you), but the walls were very thin and I could easily hear TVs and conversations from other rooms when the AC wasn't on.

I also wasn't fond of paying to park, especially since this wasn't near the beach or in a cramped area of downtown to warrant it. And 17 dollars a night?! Rip off.

On the plus side, though it didn't advertise it as free, the wireless internet worked with no charge and worked well, and the staff at check-in and check-out were all very pleasant. The location of the hotel is excellent, lots of restaurants, a Publix and a Winn Dixie next door, and easy access to the Las Olas area. The location is so nice it makes me sad that I wouldn't stay here again...the annoying AC system, dated rooms, and expensive parking just aren't worth it.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to traffic noise, ask for a room in the back. If you are sensitive to noise in...

I recently stayed here for a night on business, and I was glad I chose this place. I got there super late and both the valet and receptionist were really friendly. The room was very spacious and had all the amenities one could want. The bed was super comfortable, not a big fan of the tub shower or their olive oil basil soap but i guess some people are. Breakfast was good, the usual eggs, bacon, sausage, OJ, cereal, fruit type stuff (could of used waffles). The Fitness room was decent as well as the pool.

The only negative I have (besides the waffles) was that one of the front desk staff was a little snooty (was some time around 12pm). Besides that this is a great hotel and you should really consider staying here if you are in the area.

Don't mind the previous negative review. Anyone that is unable to form a proper sentence structure should not be taken seriously.

If you are in town for business or heading off on a cruise this is a fine option. An older property but nice and airy lobby , free breakfast and evening happy hour add to the atmosphere. Clean, spacious room suites with small, outdoor balcony. Easy access to Port, convention center and beach is just a couple of miles away .

My wife and I were recently guests on a cruise ship at Port Everglades.This hotel is located next to the cruise terminal. It was very convenient. The hotel offers pickup from the airport which was prompt and efficient. The hotel room was large and comfortable. The staff was very friendly and efficient

This hotel was recommended to us by another cruiser prior to sailing out of Port Everglades. We purchased the cruise package which offered transfer from the airport and to the cruise port. Very prompt pick up at Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood airport. Shuttle runs every 15 mintues when there is a ship in the port for drop off. Guys were helpful with the baggage transport/storage and everything ran smoothly. There was some sort of 'English' exchange experience booked during our stay, so when using the pool and hot tub it was filled with teenagers who were not very accommodating. Cocktail reception was okay. Bottom shelf liquor but hey it is a free drink so don't expect the best. Very convenient to resturants, grocery, liquor, bank, and all other shopping. Hotel room was clean. Lots of counter space and an extra sink in bedroom made the morning rush easier. Go to breakfast early as it gets very busy. We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio by the koi pond/waterfall. The geckos came out and the fish are large and lively. It was a mixed group of couples, singles, and families staying. We would definitely stay again. The only draw back- old pizza box on the balcony and hold down the toilet handle when you flush. Beach and the boulevard are lots of fun. Nice views and we even saw the cruise ships.
