I have never written a review but joined trip advisor because I had such a bad experience at this Holiday Inn and want others to know before they book. I stay at hotels almost weekly and have never had an experience this bad. The first thing I noticed in the hotel was a dead roach turned upside down in the...

We stayed 2 Nights at this Holiday Inn and used our IHG Points to pay for it. We are Platinum Elite status. We wanted to see a bit of Fort Lauderdale prior to the Cruise. We walked to the Cruise Port as it is very close to the Hotel and wanted to get our bearings straight because we were going...

This hotel is conveniently located to the cruise lines. We checked in late Saturday night. The hotel has a free shuttle from the airport which was really easy. We waited maybe 20 minutes from the time we called until they picked us up. The hotel is under construction but it didn't effect our stay. The rooms are fine, they have...

Like many others this was our first visit to Fort Lauderdale & the airport is a little intimidating. The hotel advertises they have a shuttle bus pick-up from the airport to the hotel which they do.

We stayed here from 19-23 April and as the title suggests we were really disappointed As instructed, we rang the hotel from the airport to request the shuttle bus and despite the receptionist knowing our exact location, he informed us to turn right for the shuttle bus instead of left.

Stokerej, We appreciate you taking the time to share a review. However, I am sorry to hear that your stay was less than satisfactory. It is unfortunate that some of our hotel rooms faces the building next door which does not allow for much sunlight or view. The good news is that we are adding a second tower with 72...

Standard Holiday Inn Express, but what's over the top is how CLOSE you are to the cruise port. My husband and I and another couple rolled our bags from the hotel to port. Short distance.
