I used to stay at the Embassy Suites ALOT when I worked in south Florida. I was there back in 2005 when hurricane Wilma went through and did a ton of damage to the place. I have video of the sky lights in the atrium broken and roof tiles flying in along with a huge waterfall from the roof coming inside. One couple also decided it was a good idea to open their balcony door and it blew out their front window that looks into the atrium.

Out of all the hotels I've stayed at in Ft Lauderdale this is by far my favorite, yes it costs quite a bit but figure if you go elsewhere and you want to have drinks in the evening and a hot breakfast cooked to order you will have spent as much as staying at the embassy as evening cocktails and breakfast is free.

I remember one night myself and some other guys I was working with were going to go down to beach place for the evening and we asked if they could call us a taxi, the man who was driving the bus that night overheard us asking and offered to take us down there for free. We gave him a nice tip after he had dropped us off.

We will be cruising out of Ft. Lauderdale in March. I currently have us booked at the Hilton Garden Inn on 18th Ave, Dania.

Have any of you stayed there? Should I look closer to the port?

Lanie, there are so many well priced hotels close to the port, many with shuttles, & breakfasts, honestly, Dania would not be in the equasion for me. I have used priceline, many times and have been happy..Roadway, also seems to be a fave with some Crusiemates too.

I just booked the Hyatt Place @ 17th Street on Priceline for $169/night. I think I got a good deal....

Lanie, I stayed there in March, and got a low price via Priceline. Because we precruise there for 2 days, the parking fee ate up any savings.They don't give free handicapped parking. Great location,and we were able to see the ships come into the port. The Lauderdale webcam has a camera on top, so you can precruise in your mind.
