"Quiet and restful"
Room was clean and comfortable. It was also very quiet. Most folks were middle aged to elderly and were using the HI Express as a stayover launch site for their Carribean cruise vacation. The breakfast was plentiful with both hot and cold items available.Service was friendly and efficient.

"Convenient to everything"
I stayed at this hotel the night before a ferry ride to the Bahamas. It was a convenient spot not that far from the airport and even closer to the ferry port. The driver was extremely friendly as was the rest of the staff. We left the hotel before breakfast was served so they gave us a "to go" bag of goodies. I would stay at this hotel again. There were also plenty of eateries in the area and a nail salon across the street (which made a difference to me).

We always stay at holiday in express for it's location to restaurants , beaches and the cruise port. We drive to the hotel and take the shuttles to the port for convenience at very little charge. several restaurants are with in walking distance so when you get there , you don't really have to drive.

"What is that smell??"
The room was fine and the breakfast was as well but everything else was lacking. The people at the desk in the morning were good but at night the desk help seemed to fall off. The gym was almost nonexistent, you had to go to another property for the pool and there was this horrible smell everyday that lingered around the property.

"Up all night with fire alarm"
Because I was presenting at a conference the following day, I booked this room to get a good nights rest. Quite the opposite happened when a fire alarm went off and the whole hotel evacuated. After they told us it was a false alarm, the alarm continued to sound and make flashing lights for the next hour. I expected to be compensated for the loss of rest by the hotel in some way. They did NOTHING! The front office clerk said the general manager would call me after I complained. GM didn't contact me. All hotels have and incident once in a while. NEVER have I had a bad experience in a hotel where they didn't at least make some kind of kind gesture the following day like monetary compensation or a coupon. Instead, they acted like nothing happened! DONT STAY HERE!

"Conveniently located to the Convention Center"
The hallways of the hotel were brutally hot-no idea why because lobby and rooms were cold. Waiting for the elevator on the 5th floor in that heat was a nightmare. But, the staff was extremely courteous and friendly. They allowed us to leave our bags early, gave us discounts to local restaurants etc. Very polite, friendly and accommodating. Amelia was at the front desk when I checked in and is the epitome of hospitable. The food in the breakfast buffet is tasty, but the tiny room and barely any seating is terrible, everyone was fighting for chairs! Overall I'd stay here again unless I had to attend an event that required me to be fully made up and dressed for the town-by the time the elevator comes all my makeup would have been on my chin I was swearing so much in the hallway heat!

"Nice are and staff... upkeep could be improved."
Our first room had a broken A/C unit, a torn condom wrapper on the floor, and felt really musty. The staff was able to relocate us to a room with a working cooling unit. The problem was the this room had toe nails on the floor and a piece of lettuce. Needless to say, bring shoes to wear inside the room (either slippers or flip flops) because the house keeping staff is horrible. At least the beds and towels were clean and the front staff was very nice and worked with us through everything. They obviously cared to give us as good of an experience as possible. The breakfast in the morning was also a plus.

"Nothing fancy, but nice location and staff"
This is a nice hotel for the price. Excellent restaurants within walking distance. Breakfast is quite plentiful for 'free'. I liked the inside of the rooms but I must say the only negative comment I have was the hallways, vending areas on each floor and stairwells. They seem dirty and unkept. It would be my number one recommendation for improvement.

Just stayed at this hotel one night as a layover from our cruise. The check in staff was wonderful. We arrived very early and they held our bags and informed us a room will be ready before check in. Stayed in a comfortable nice room. Would stay here again. Shuttle to the airport was not available for our really early flight. Hotel staff called a taxi and payed the fare so we could get to the airport before 5 AM.

"Excellent hotel for business meeting."
The best thing about the hotel was the staff. Always smiling and super accommodating. The room was always extremely clean and everything was well maintained. There isn't a pool or really much of a view, but I only needed a place to sleep as I was spending most of my time at the convention center. Although it was not on the list of recommended accommodations for the meeting, I found it closer than most and the walk was easy and right past a Walgreens for any extra needs. The breakfast was sufficient and there was plenty of everything. Definitely not a place for an extended vacation, hence the "express" part of the name, but clean and friendly and perfect for my needs. I made sure to call ahead and let them know my flight would be late and a room was waiting for me when I arrived.

"Nice hotel. Very convenient when going on a cruise"
We stayed arriving at Fort Lauderdale and when we returned from Princess Cruise. Port to get on cruise was a 10 minute walk. It was wonderful. They of course have shuttle, but we chose to walk there and back. Shuttle to and from airport was great. Staff was awesome! I wish it had a pool and was a bit closer to the beach, but our group caught the local trolley that stopped out front of the motel which took us back and forth to the beach. Staff went over and above to ensure our stay and experience was the best possible. Storing our luggage until time for flight, arranging for airboat everglades excursion, etc. I would definitely stay again. Also lots of shopping and eating in the area if you are on foot.

"Easily accessible"
I don't expect to be treated like a princess, but when I leave my room for a few hours, and upon returning (soaking wet from rain) I go to grab my dry sleep shirt that I placed on the extra chair in the room, and it's gone. Obviously not worth stealing, but when we asked housekeeping and the front desk about the missing shirt all they can say is we searched through all the laundry and it just isn't there. We are so sorry. Not even a can we replace your shirt or here is a $20.00 credit on your room, nothing, just we are sorry, but it does happen sometimes!!! Not very good customer service!!

"Nice hotel, close to port everglades."
We stayed at this hotel for one night before our cruise from port everglades. The price was a but steep buy was very conveniently located. Great staff. Clean rooms. Good breakfast buffet. Publix and Win-dixie groceries within walking distance. Walgreens and CVS within walking distance. Restaurants within walking distance. The hotel has a shuttle service to the port (additional cost applies). If you get a chance, walk out to the 17th street causeway bridge on a Sunday morning to have a wonderful view of the cruise ships. Will definitely return for a pre-cruise stay.

Went to Fort Lauderdale for a cruise and selected your hotel because of the shuttle and free breakfast. Shuttle driver was friendly and helpful. Arrived at hotel and front desk had room key ready for me, no waiting even though there was a group on the airport shuttle that was checking in at the same time. The guests I was traveling with were also placed on the same floor that I was staying on and this made it convenient for us. Breakfast room with well stocked with all food items at all times and was well maintained.

"Location was perfect for Broward Court"
Checkin was friendly and efficient. I only spent one night and did not partake of anything besides sleeping and showering. Bathroom was spacious and nicely appointed. Vessel sink was a bit much for this level of hotel, but they are trying, I guess. Good vanity space for makeup etc. I always try to give the ladies a heads up about this. Only complaint was air conditioning was very loud and even though hotel has been updated, the room still has that musty Florida feel. I would definitely recommend overall.
