Default Fort Lauderdale Hotels

I am looking for a pre-cruise hotel in Fort Lauderdale.

A hotel that offers free transportation between the airport and Port Everglades would be great.

Some of the hotels I've seen listed on the internet look great, but the reviews by people who have actually stayed there aren't very impressive.

Any suggestions?

I know there is a Comfort Suites on S. Federal Hwy. that offers free transfers to/from the airport and pier. Also an Embassy Suites on S.E. 17th Street Causeway that offers transfers from the airport (don't know about the pier) but it is 2 minutes from Port Everglades. I have no idea what these properties look like inside but do know they are a stone's throw from the airport and pier.

I've stayed at the Hampton Inn on 17th street and they have transportation to and from the airport and also to the pier. It is a typical Hampton Inn .... large clean rooms w/continental breakfast. There are a few shopping plazas in the area for forgotten necessities.

I stayed at the Comfort Suites. It was adequate. Good Breakfast. Used the transportation from the airport to the hotel and from hotel to the Cruise Port. Very effiecient. I would stay there again. We walked a block or so, to a great steakhouse. It was excellent. Made for a nice evening before our cruise!! Good Luck!

Best Western Marina Inn, 17th ave. Complimentary shuttle from airport
and to pier.
We're using that next april 1st, pre-cruise before INFINITY trans-canal sailing.
Price is moderate, typical BestWestern....so are the reviews....it should
for a inexpensive but basically confortable night of sleep, breakfast and shuttle
to PortEverglades for checkin ASAP mid morning.

I might have researched for a level two or three notches up from that if
staying in FortLauderdale for 3-4 days and a good quality visit.

Good luck
