The staff is to be praised -Jay above all. The management as well, for the fine ground floor renovation. Rooms are fresh but nothing special, with date shower. The pool is actually really nice, with a surprising number of palms surrounding it, despite it's adjacent to a road (the bushed fence should actually be a wall, to make it nicer...

Stayed at this hotel prior to embarking on a cruise. Perfect location as it's close to the Port Everglades cruise terminals. The hotel is physically beautiful. However, service is nonexistent. I am a Marriott Rewards Platinum member and stood in a long line with one front desk attendant simply to get my keys as I did an online check in...

Staff was very nice will start there , But for first time cruising out of Ft Lauderdale , This is where the cruise line will send you . This place is very expensive for what they offer . 400 dollar room that would cost a 100 anywhere else. A breakfast buffet that would be free at any holiday express ,...

My wife and I stayed here the night before our cruise. We couldn't have been happier with the hotel. Our room was very nice and also very clean. We ate dinner at their restaurant the night of our arrival. Excellent meal. We had the breakfast buffet in the morning and it was excellent with a wide variety of selections as...

I am so late with this review. My friend and I were cruising out of Miami, Oct 6-10. We ran smack into Hurricane Matthew. The first night of our cruise was cancelled and we had to find a last minute hotel. In the middle of the night, driving against strong rains and winds all the way from VA-FL we were...

A group of us stayed at this hotel for two nights before boarding a cruise. The positives: Our room was on 3rd floor and it was your typical standard size hotel room, very comfortable. Hotel staff very nice and helpful. The location is fabulous as you can walk to many restaurants, bars and shopping right close by. Shuttle to cruise...

We stayed one night prior to our cruise. The room had a king size bed, TV, desk, and fridge. The hotel restaurant food was tasteless and expensive. There was a band playing across from the restaurant and we could not hear each other talk. The staff was very nice and friendly. The location was good; it is close to the...

We chose this hotel to stay after our cruise and I was very happy with that decision. First of all, it's only a 10 minute drive from the pier (taxi fare is around $20 for a party of 4). The rooms are modern, clean and nice as is the pool area. They have an exceptional staff, very friendly and courteous....
