Holiday Inn Ft. Lauderdale Airport

Reviewed 19 October 2011

We ended up at the Holiday Inn due to a problem with our connecting flight. We weren't too happy about the unexpected layover after a long spell travelling and waited with some apprehension for our complimentary shuttle to the hotel. Our apprehension faded as soon as our driver showed up and cheerfully zipped us over to the hotel. Once there, the front desk staff kindly checked us in and gave us the run down. Our room was bright, clean, spacious and came equipped with a comfy bed, good sized mini-fridge, microwave, flat screen, and complimentary wi-fi. The buffet breakfast was full, fresh, and a good value for a hotel. The best part of the hotel is the grounds. The front of the hotel features a small garden and waterfall while the back of the hotel offers a warm, large pool, waterfall, small but very hot, hot tub, and well manicured garden surrounding it all. There's a ton of outside seating, and the bar, which opens in the evening, serves inside (air con) and out on the patio. Between the waterfall and all the greenery you wouldn't even know you were in a city or near an airport. The gym is small but has treadmills, bikes, a bench and enough free weights to do a basic workout. My only criticism of the hotel would have to be that some of the staff were not super friendly and the some of the desk staff were not knowledgeable of the area. Fortunately both of our drivers were amazing and gave us all the info we needed. If you're in need of a layover near the airport in Fort Lauderdale then I highly recommend checking out this place. I hope your stay was as good as ours, just make sure you get this hotel and not the Holiday Inn Express!

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the pool for a better view.

Very nice Holiday Inn. Grounds well manicured and rooms were excellent. Overall a very nice stay. Only complaint was the breakfast staff. They didn't come back to the table once and were borderline rude - my co-worker never even got a beverage or silverware. They were obviously overworked so I'll give them a break, but at least that day they needed a few more workers.

Arrived for one night stay. Went to room and obviously someone did not care that the hotel is a non-smoking facility. Called front desk and was immediately provided another room. Camila at the front desk is to be complimented for how she handled this situation.

Room was very large and well appointed.

Breakfast buffet provided a large assortment of foods or a la carte from the menu is an option..

Flew into Ft. Lauderdale two days before a cruise and had a terrific stay at this hotel. It was so simple to call the hotel from the airport and the driver arrived within minutes to whisk us away. The desk staff welcomed us with fresh fruit and bottled water. Our room was large and lovely, the bathroom newly remodeled in granite and stone. We had the BEST breakfast in the dining room-- hot, perfectly cooked omelets and home fried potatoes. The hotel shuttle not only picked us up at the airport, they drove us to the cruise port as well! We will DEFINATELY stay here again.

Room Tip: Very quiet room overlooking the pool.

stayed one night to catch flight out. Shuttle to airport right on time. Just a 15 minute ride. Stayed on executive level, beautiful room overlooking the pool area. Bathroom shower was big enough to have a party in! The pool area is lovely. Even though the location is right by the highway, the waterfall by the pool masked the sound of the cars. Little disappointed in the bar service, ordered two drinks was told $9.50 at first, then after getting served the bartender said, oops, it's $11 (for a Corona and a rum a coke) give me a break - know your prices. Overall nice place. Nothing around the area to walk to though.

After a mediocre trip to Jamaica our group had a 24 hour flight delay and were put up in the Holiday Inn Ft. Lauderdale Airport in Hollywood and let me tell you, it was just about the best part of our vacation! A whole group of us, castaways if you will, checked in at midnight on a Sunday night after missing our connecting flight. The man checking us in made us all feel much better and went out of his way to accomodate us and get us the things we needed.
We were given vouchers for breakfast by the airline but it didn't cover the cost, the manager waived the rest of the fee which we appreciated so much. On Monday we did not have to be at the airport until 5 p.m. which is way after check out time but the manager also allowed us to stay in our rooms until 2 p.m. and then stored our luggage from that point on.
We were told that our airline, Spirit Airlines, was one of the hotels biggest customers due to cancelled or oversold flights and consistently treated their customers poorly. That being said, it was nice to come to such a great hotel with management who knows how to treat their customers. If I ever find myself back in the Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood area, which I might as we had so much sightseeing that day, I will certainly stay at this Holiday Inn.
