The Holiday Inn Express on 17th street ranks somewhere between a 3 and a 4. Its location right around the corner from the cruise ship terminal is its biggest plus, since it only took us a few minutes to get to our ship. Check in and out was fast, the property was attractive and their continental breakfast was above average...

We stayed at the hotel while attending a weeklong conference. Our sleeping room was comfortable and quiet. The complimentary breakfast provided adequate choices of hot and cold items which had good taste. The airport shuttle took 30 minutes for our pick up and was a bit confusing as there are two Holiday Inn Express Airport Cruise Port hotels but only...

Convenient location with complimentary airport shuttle (and Cruiseport shuttle presumably). The hotel is being renovated, which is much needed. Rooms are average. The 1245am fire alarm two days in a row didn't make our stay terribly enjoyable. Apparently this is a recurring issue they can't figure out. We will probably stay elsewhere next time we pass thru.

Usually I would not spend more than $200 a night for a holiday inn express, but Fort Lauderdale is an expensive town I guess with all that cruise business. Nothing wrong with the hotel itself though, it's a standard Holiday Inn Express, clean and comfortable, with the regular breakfast selection and above average location. The three stars just denotes that...

Arrived at the hotel at 1100 in the morning after a cruise on the Carnival Splendor and was pleasantly surprised and thankful to be checked into a room by 1130. The lobby and room was very clean and smelled fresh. The beds were very comfortable and accommodated me, my wife, and two kids (9 & 3). An added bonus was...

My travel partner and I regularly book Holiday Inn Express when we travel. We've found the properties and service to be consistently excellent and a good value. Just 3 months ago, we booked the other Ft. Lauderdale Airport/Cruise property and the experience was excellent. Fast forward to yesterday. From the onset, this property has failed on every single level. 1....

This was our second time staying here before our Allure of the Seas cruise our of Port Everglades. Staff: Front desk staff was SO friendly! They were great and held our luggage when our room wasn't ready, and were always eager to help us with any questions we had or calling a cab. Room: Clean, updated, and the king bed...

I cannot review the hotel because our flight to our cruise port was cancelled due to inclement weather. So at the last minute we ended up having to drive from Richmond Va to Ft Lauderdale. It was too late to cancel the reservation and we were going to be charged for the room. Expedia contacted the hotel manager and was...

My parents and I stayed here for 2 nights in late March pre-cruise. The free airport shuttle arrived within 15 minutes as promised and the hotel (through a third party provider) offers a shuttle to the port for $8 per person and fron the port to FLL for $10 per person). Our room was clean and well-appointed and the free...

This hotel is so convenient to "Things to Do" in Fort Lauderdale. Complimentary shuttle from airport to hotel was quick and check in efficient. We stayed 2 nights pre-cruise didn't partake in breakfast first morning but did the second. Many food options warm and tasty and you can tell the attendant took pride in the area constantly monitoring the stock...
