I haven't posted for so long, just been reading here and there. I'm sure this has been answered but.......we are cruising Caribbean Princess in May and have never stayed in a hotel in FLL before. I know that a lot of people recommend the Embassy Suites and I wonder if they have a shuttle pick up at the airport, or if not, about how much is the taxi fare? This will be 3 adults and a child. I also wonder if they allow early check in? The only non-stop flight I could find arrives before noon and it would be nice if we could enjoy the area a bit. Hate the thought of sitting in the lobby for hours with a 4 yr. old! Last year in Miami, the Royal Palm made us wait, so just want to be prepared. Thanks so much in advance. I have missed posting but I got a new computer.....then got lazy!
We just returned from our Caribbean Princess cruise and stayed at the Embassy Suites. It was wonderful. We took a redeye arriving at 5:30 am. We called them before we boarded the airplane and requested an early check in. It all depends on the availabilty but we saw many empty rooms. They were able to give a room so we ate a fast breakfast and we were asleep by 7 am. They do NOT have airport "pick-up" shuttles but they DO take you to the airport. Our cab ride was $12 plus a tip.
