The Crowne Plaza Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel at the airport is the favored choice among cruise-goers, business travelers and event attendees, located less than one mile from Ft. Lauderdale Airport (FLL), Port Everglades and the Broward County Convention Center.

"Upgraded to the "Presidential" Suite"
Obviously being upgraded to what I was told is the "best" room in the house is going to impact my review a bit. But what I can remain impartial on is the excellent location to both the airport AND the cruise port - about 10 minutes for each. The check in service was quick and easy. The Hotel common areas are well cleaned and cared for. Kiki's Restaurant has excellent food at a reasonable (for a hotel) price. The well organized and efficient shuttle service to the Cruise Port was welcome. And the Driver was very friendly and accommodating to the mostly senior crowd. And now for the elephant in the review. The room. I have never stayed at a Crown Plaza before but we had become part of their loyalty program when we booked. We had booked a standard king size room almost a year before our trip. When we checked in Cris D. said we had been upgraded to the Presidential Suite. I laughed and figured they say that to all their customers. The room was on the 11th floor at the end of the hallway. Our first clue that he told us the truth was the double doors for our room. When we walked in the room was palatial. Kitchenette to the left with a powder room. A dining room table and a love seat and two chairs. Then more double doors to the bedroom with double closets and through another door to the bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, vanity and a toilet room. All very updated and spotless. I think we had access to 10 hand-towels and 6 bath towels under the vanity. I will stay at this hotel the next time we are in Fort Lauderdale even if we do not get the Presidential Suite. A plus was the Harbor Shops which were a 15 minute walk away. I stocked up on some goodies that we took on the cruise with us.
Good location for the cruise terminal - reasonably priced - comfortable hotel - good size room - nice restaurant and good food - offers shuttle services to both the cruise terminals and Fort Lauderdale airport.
"my extended stay at The Crowne Plaza"
the entire staff of Crowne Plaza was extremely helpful in all areas of guest services. Claudia Polidori is the hotel's general manager, Carlos Restropo is the restaurant manager. their combined efforts make the Crowne a great place to stay. the food is exceptional, service is excellent. the bar is much more that a typical hotel bar. they have sports on 3 TVs, an extensive array of liquors and beers and Andreas behind the bar is courteous, funny and a terrific mixologist. (try his "key lime" martini) all in all for a single night or an extended stay, you can't beat the Crowne Plaza. their prices are very reasonable too.
"Best staff at any Hotel Period! "
Due to JetBlues lack of communication from flight to flight we missed our plane. We were brought here and treated like royalty. Yolanda (front desk) made this experience wonderful. She took great care of us. Thank you for everything Crowne Plaza! I highly recommend staying here and will be back for future travel.
George Johnson is fantastic! He was very helpful in his recommendations and took our bags straight into the hotel. He led us to this delicious restaurant AND relaxing lounge/pool area on the fifth floor. The staff was very helpful and made us feel at home. The rooms were very spacious and clean. I would highly recommend this place!!
