We stayed here upon returning from our cruise. The lobby staff were very friendly.
Our room was nice, and clean. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very nice.
The best feature of this hotel is the swimming pool. The entrance of the hotel has a nice fountain, but they have put some serious money into the pool area, and it shows! The pool has a waterfall, palm trees, lounge chairs, the entire surface is interlocked, and is just spectacular. The restaurants patio extends outside to this area.
My husband and I enjoyed lounging outside and in the pool all afternoon. Every guest that came outside were wowed. At night, they have lights shinning on all the trees, and rope lights wound up the palm trees.
There is a highway just up the hill, but the trees block 95% of the view, and you can't hear the highway on account of the waterfall. Very clever design!
We ate dinner at Denny's which is directly across the street, and there is a gas station beside the hotel where you can buy snacks, booze, etc. We did not eat at the restaurant because it looked a bit expensive. ($18 for fish and chips) but it was beautiful!
Coffee in the lobby is out at 5am, and was surprisingly very good!
The shuttle to the airport runs every 30 minutes, and was on time in the morning, and the driver was very friendly. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the airport.
I really liked that the shuttle van, pulls a trailer. That way, your luggage goes in the back, and they can fill the van with people. I will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that faces the back of the hotel so you can see the pool area.

We needed lodging closeby to Ft Lauderdale's airport and this Holiday Inn fit the bill. A beautiful room, outdoor tropical pool w/spa, and a place to park our car (no charge) while we were away for nearly two weeks made it an ideal place to stay.

Stayed here for one night pre-cruise. The hotel offered free parking and free transport (the shuttle will make multiple stops for each cruise ship - hotel to ship approx 30min we were last stop) to cruise terminal. Cab fare back approx $20 (note you can take a free shuttle from the cruise port to the airport and the hotel will provide airport to hotel free shuttle, that might be a cost savings but a bit of a pain). Overall the hotel was clean and comfortable the staff friendly. The pool area is very nice with a bar and the pool is heated! Not much nearby - you can walk to the Shell station for needed supplies (beer, etc) and a Denny's across the street. I would stay here again for my next cruise.

Room Tip: be aware that the hotel is located between a highway and railroad. There is a public balcony (prima...

This was another insurance business trip overnight stay and I really enjoyed this hotel and the location. The service was fabulous and friendly and Gulcan was a sweetheart and great help. The room was clean and comfortable and amenities were great. So YES, I would certainly go back and intend to! I will also look to have them host my next business meeting as well the next time I'm in south FL.
