Holiday Inn Express and Suites Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 March 2014 via mobile

The hotel was clean, and my actual room was clean as well. The front desk staff were just ok. The hotel was a short drive from the airport, and places to grab a bite to eat. I would probably stay here again.

After driving 3 days to get to Fort Lauderdale I was very concerned about finding a Pet friendly property that didn't have bed bugs. The HI Express was very clean, friendly and overall a nice property. (Pool was very nice; as well as the morning breakfast). While a bit more expensive than other properties in the area; I feel it was well worth the price paid. Front desk staff was very efficient and check in/out was a breeze. This property has the standard HI Express breakfast; however, they are much much better than most! Should I return to the area I will stay at this location again. (Pet fee is a very reasonable $25 and they will assign you a room on the ground level with exterior door...Great!) Keep up the great work staff!

Room Tip: Back side rooms seem to be very quiet.

My family and I stayed for 1 night before our flight to Staniel Cay.
We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the hotel in all areas.
We wanted to go to the beach since we arrived at noon. The limo service we had hired for the airport transfers offered to bring us for $40 each way, which was 5 miles. When Jo Jean heard that she called another service that was much less expensive. She knew we were getting scammed. Thanks to her we got to have an extra cocktail on a great beach and fun area.
This hotel is top notch with a wonderful caring staff.

If you are planning to frequent the beaches and restaurants in Fort Lauderdale this is about 7 miles west with lots of traffic on a main highway. There are no nearby restaurants and the staff is unfamiliar with any restaurants nor do they have menus or typical concierge knowledge. The rooms were ok. Clean but lacking such amenities as folding suitcase racks. For a night or two one does not always choose to unpack into drawers. There was a lovely woman assisting with breKfast and she kept everything well supplied though the offerings were fewer than as is typically found at HI Express.
A car is a necessity as there is nothing around there within walking distance. Would not stay there again unless I were an executive with a workplace close by.

Dear Pattivit,
So sorry that we didn't live up to your expectations, or this might be one of our sister properties. We are located in a very quiet area. We are only 4 miles from the beach and the restaurants are 2 blocks away..mostly fast food. Mc Donalds, KFC, Miami Sub, Nathan Hot Dogs, etc.
Again, so sorry that you didn't enjoy your stay. I will share all your comments and scoring with the entire staff.
Safe Travels !

With upstate New York in the midst of the worst winter I've seen in years, It made this golf trip even more enjoyable. We were here in January and again in February. We love the fact that we never have to worry about our digs. After coming here for so many years now, we don't even consider any other hotel. The staff is ever so helpful and your every need is met with a smile. The rooms are terrific and the beds, those beds, sooooo comfortable!!! Our foursome meets downstairs at nine for a full complimentary breakfast that has every and anything you could possibly want. After a most futile attempt to eat light before golf, we tee off at ten at our favorite course, Plantation Preserve.
There is another, yes another snowstorm scheduled for later this week and I may come back for a long weekend. This was once again has been a terrific experience and my sincere thanks to Mrs. Allen and her staff for making us feel way more special than we are.
So, anyone on the fence, trust me, just BOOK IT DANO!!!!

After being on vacation in the Keys we booked the last night here for our flight out at FLL. This is a nice hotel. With a complimentary breakfast. Comfortable, clean at a fair price. I would definitely stay here again.

This was my second time staying at this HIE, and I must say this is the best customer service I've experienced in a long time. Joseph and the rest of the staff just makes you feel at home and welcomed, whatever they can do to make your stay better they do. Especially being a Platinum Member I've travelled many places and many different IHG hotels, but this is the only one that has the full package. Upgrade was given when available, rooms were clean, suites are very spacious, and the location was really good for me being between Hwy 95 and the Turnpike. Breakfast was always fully stocked and Sharon was always so polite and nice. She had closed down everything since breakfast was over and she saw me go up to get some juice, and she turned the machine back on for me without me even asking! Just quality service. I already have booked my stay back here towards the end of March because there isn't another hotel I would stay at other then this great place. Thank you to the staff and especial Joseph! You are awesome!
