Crowne Plaza Hotel Fort Lauderdale is a mid-range, 148-room hotel. With its close proximity to the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport and Port Everglades, it's a popular hotel choice for business travelers and other short-term guests. While not in an exciting neighborhood (views are industrial), the hotel offers access to a well-kept fitness center, swimming pool, and Latin American restaurant/bar, making it a convenient option. Rooms are spacious and modern, with bright pops of color and elegant bathroom sinks. Other similarly priced hotels, including the Holiday Inn and Hyatt Place, offer the same amenities and proximity to the airport/cruise port, along with easier access to shops and restaurants on 17th Street.
