SpringHill Suites Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port - Dania Beach, FL

This was our last swim of this vacation, and it was a great little pool on the property of the SpringHill Suites Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port, located at a physical address in Dania Beach, Florida.

That's a long name for a hotel, but it's definitely worth looking up. It's located right off I-95, less than 4 miles from the Fort Lauderdale Airport and the Cruise Terminals.

The hotel was large and comfortable, with a cool, breezy modern decor. The free continental breakfast, like those offered in most SpringHill properties, was fantastic. We are big breakfast eaters, with some of us pickier than others, and we are most grateful that the Marriott Fairfield Inns & Suites, SpringHill Suites, and Residence Inn properties tend to offer some of the best complimentary breakfasts available of all hotel chains.

For most travels that call for hotel stays, we always start with scoping out Marriott properties, particularly in the SpringHill line because their standard room size includes 2 queen beds and a queen sleeper. It's a semi-divided suite, and most usually have two flat-screen televisions with a full range of family-friendly cable programming; as well as a wet bar with fridge, sink, coffee-making station; and a large desk and comfy chair.

We have mixed feelings on the bathroom being in the middle of the room in front of the beds. They are quite spacious, but overall, it's an odd layout that, at times, can feel like privacy is being compromised, depending upon who is in your party. If it's just you and the kids, it's no big deal; but when you have friends or extended family with you, it feels like the bathrooms are the center of the room's attention. But, even so, all the extra space is appreciated.

At the time of our stay, this hotel offered a free airport shuttle. I would certainly verify what they currently offer as far as shuttles and parking, as sometimes these things do change over the years.

The value for this hotel was great for the area. Fort Lauderdale isn't a cheap city, but we were pleased with our room rate. SpringHill Suites have all kinds of added values for families, figuring the large rooms, all the in-room amenities, and the free breakfast.  

And of course the awesome pool and fountains!
