When we take a cruise from Fort Lauderdale, we have found that the Holiday Inn Express Convention Center/ Cruise Port fits our needs. The location is very close to the cruise port. We take a cab, although you can also sign up for their paid shuttle to the port. The place is basic, no pool, but well maintained and in easy walking distance to restaurants and stores. The free airport shuttle and free internet are most appreciated. The best feature is the excellent free breakfast under the supervision of Ms. Margaret Mack. She keeps the breakfast room well stocked and clean. We always appreciate the fine work she does and it's another reason for us to patronize this hotel. This time we stayed one night pre and post cruise.
