We stayed 2 nights at this location for leisure travel. The rooms smelled a little misty and mold. The beds were comfortable and clean. I really didn't care for the breakfast, but because of COVID-19 I understand the circumstance during these times. The Customer Service was very attentive when I had issues with the T.V. and internet. The manage was so sweet. Thank you for a nice stay.

My family and I stayed one night at this hotel before our cruise. We called as soon as we left the airport and the shuttle came in half-hour. The hotel is very close to the airport and the cruise port so it's very convenient. We were checked in very fast, customer service at the front desk is excellent, Citonia (sp.) was very friendly and we were checked in quickly. She is the reason I am giving two stars and not one (or zero if I could). The reason for my two stars?? My son left his Nintendo switch in the room by the TV and of course, housekeeping didn't find it. Check out is at 11 so we left fast without checking the room so we wouldn't be charged, and because of this we payed a hefty cost. I could not call the hotel because I was on the cruise, but I sent an email, no response. The minute the cruise docked back at Fort Lauderdale I called, they told me to call back at 10 am, which I did, and of course, no gaming device was found. I was told maybe we lost it somewhere else. If my son played the switch in the hotel room and then we got on a cruise and he immediately said once we got on the cruise he left it in the hotel room, it was 100% left in that room. So please make sure to not leave anything behind in your room, it will not be recovered which is sad, because this can accidentally happen to anyone!!! It is my fault for not checking the room before we left and we paid a hefty price. Very disappointed. And to top it off there was a roach crawling in our room!!

We stayed at this hotel because it was convenient to the airport and cruise terminal. “Convenient” does not mean “easy to access”, despite how it looks on the map. We arrived at FLL, got our bags and called the phone number shown in the IHG app. The automated call system puts you in a loop where you continually get routed to option ‘3’. After 3 rounds of that, I finally chose the option that allowed me to talk to a person. Her first words were, “How may I route your call?” I figured I was about to go back into the ‘3-loop’ so I immediately said that I needed the shuttle and please don’t send me back into the voice response system! The operator got snippy and asked my name. I gave it and got asked if I had the right HIE as she had no record of my reservation. I told her I had already checked in and she said something about “digital check-in”, implying I had committed some sort of sin. She finally found our reservation and told me to walk out of the terminal and “turn left” and look for a white van. Not terribly helpful since the area where we needed to wait is tucked in between 2 terminals and the traffic is a mess. We were lucky we found the area and that the van came within a few minutes. Others complained they had waited for an hour for a pickup. The van was jammed - hot and no social distancing possible. The van services 2 hotels, so the driver stopped at the Four Points first. No one seemed to know what hotel they were staying in, so the driver started pulling away. Finally someone said that was their hotel so she backed up. A complete cluster. When we arrived at the hotel, the front desk person was very sympathetic. She got my paperwork and sent me on my way. When we got to the room, we found that we had two full beds instead of the king bed we had reserved. I went back to the desk, where I was told that my digital check-in was somehow the source of the problem and that I had been given an “upgrade”. The man behind the desk seemed genuinely perplexed that I was unhappy about getting 2 full beds when I had reserved a king bed. He asked if I had used anything in the room, which seemed odd since I had only been on the premises for about 5 minutes. The woman who had checked me in stepped in and took over, switching us to a king room on the same floor. The room is nice enough, as was the two-bed room. The problem is not the property, it is some combination of the people and the technology. Somehow they don’t quite mesh and the guest is caught in the middle. Two words of advice: 1) Don’t use the technology , and 2) don’t use the shuttle - use a ride share service.

Great customer service. Comfortable bed and room. Loved the remote control cover! I wish more hotels thought of this. Walking distance to a lot of good restaurants. Apparently airlines use this hotel a lot when customers miss their connection.
