Embassy Suites by Hilton Fort Lauderdale 17th Street
Ranked #38 of 127 Hotels in Fort Lauderdale
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

This is an older property that is undergoing some lipstick makeovers with new carpet and hallway lighting. I would say the rooms could use some updating.

The staff were all friendly and accommodating. Hotel is in a decent location. A few miles from the offices on Las Olas and the beach. There are properties closer to both.

However, with that being said, I would stay here again.

Parking is tight, but that might be because of the landscape work they were doing.

If you have been to an older ES and like them; this is your place. The room was clean and spacious.

This location will exceed your expectations. The service received from all team members will make you want to stay there again. When you check in and feel comfortable right away it's because of employees like Sandra. She obviously raises the bar for all to follow.

As expected, Embassy Suites delivered exactly what our family of 8 was looking for. We had two rooms adjacent to each other and took full advantage of the nice pool and grounds and typically nicely prepared hot breakfast. Everything was clean, staff was competent and friendly, easy parking, restaurants, CVS and grocery store within walking distance, no complaints. If you are staying here prior to boarding a cruise ship at Port Everglades, it's cheaper to take a taxi than to pay the $8 per head for a shuttle (maybe it was $6, I can't exactly remember but a taxi was definitely WAY less expensive). We jumped in two taxis and paid $15 plus tip for each cab. The concierge was less than happy with me for not taking the shuttle. But don't let her intimidate you. Cab it. No big deal.

Room Tip: Elevators are not new and fairly loud. Try and get a room not near them if possible.

RUDE is the word:
Checked in late... Room with a view of a palm tree blocks everything.
Bathroom.... Not Clean
Coffee Maker.... Broken
Breakfast.... Shut down at 8:59 (not 9a) unplugged the toaster before removing the muffins n bread. Coffee empty. Juice turned off. Just overall poor.
Valet... tried to charge me for parking my own car. Is separate from hotel. Not charged to the room.

Overall.... Tired property in need of attention. Not up to Embassy standards!

This hotel is in a very good location with nice pool area. Great complimentary breakfast (full breakfast selection) and nightly complimentary managers happy hours with snacks. The rooms are a little dated but over all clean and comfortable. Staff for the most part friendly, courteous and professional. Safety issues none.

My wife and I have stayed at this hotel several times before and after cruises. Although older, it is well maintained and the staff have always been great. We have stayed at several other hotels in the area but this hotel is definitely the best value for your money. It is close to FLL and to the cruise port. There are several stores and restaurants in the area and you can safely and comfortably walk and obtain any supplies you could possibly need. The managers reception and the buffet breakfast are fantastic added extras and the pool is perfect!. We are headed back next weekend for another cruise and have repeatedly recommended this hotel to all our friends and family........never heard a complaint yet. Definitely a must go when cruising out of Lauderdale!

My family & I stayed here one night before a cruise. First of all this hotel is being remodeled so we had a newly remodeled level. The hallway looked modern but the noise level from the atrium can be heard in the room which is a problem if you have an event on the night you stay. There was an event on the night we stayed which made the hotel very crowded & noisy. There was a police officer in the lobby which made me wonder who needed protection. The street noise on the rooms along the 17th street side can be heard in the room too. The breakfast was crowded on a Saturday morning and the only thing that was good was the omelette made to order and the coffee.

Stayed: August 2014
