... tight u turn in front of a sea wall, a strong current and the taking of photos or I would not be writing this tale.
As would be expected under such conditions docking at Grove Isle was no picnic even with the assistance of 5 men, who were no match for the wind and 66 tons of boat. The wind was still blowing at 30 mph and the current and tide were against us. Since we were aimed directly at the dock, we tried to pull in bow first but that was not going to happen. We almost ...
... the windows. Away from the windows are loveseats with small tables or tables for four, all facing forward. The rich blue carpet, red wood, and tastefully lighted conversation areas make for a comfortable and relaxing place, AND the view can’t be beat. We finally head back to our cabins to unpack. Before we know it, it’s time for dinner. We have a round table on the first floor of the Britannia. Our waiters, Marc and Alberto, ...
We took an afternoon flight from Logan to Fort Lauderdale this time around. I refuse to pay for our bags, so the closest Jet Blue flies to the keys is Ft. Lauderdale so that is what we decided to do. Being the anniversary of 9/11 the security at Logan was as thorough as I have ever seen. Glad we were early (as usual) to the airport. It was an uneventful flight and landed in the rather small Ft. Lauderdale airport in a few hours. The car was easy to find and off ...
... I had to take a nap for 3 hours LOL. Our gym trainer Keegan or Keegan the Vegan as the other crew call him is a cool south african dude in his late 20s. He is like the resident gym trainer and is super fit and looks like a rugby five eighth. At the gym/spa, I also managed to score a 15 minute free massage they were trying to sell at the entrance. The masseuse from Barcelona, Spain gave me a hot stone massage and I kept ...
... to the Epic hotel, one of the Kimpton chain, in downtown Miami was equally rapid so we found ourselves at 9pm all settled in to our spacious modern room on the 20th floor. One tip to avoid jet lag is always to adjust your watch to the new time and decide that is the time without thinking oh it is 2 in the morning really! We headed for the bar (full of ladies in serious stilettos) and had a light snack (fried seafood and French ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Suites Cypress Creek Ft. Lauderdale Fort Lauderdale
Great hotel, room, pool service excellent. A little way from the beach, but en-route for Sawgrass and afternoon shopping! You only hear the train when you're by the pool. The cross roads nearby take nerves of steel if you're not used to driving in the US, but after a day or two you get used to it. Would definitely stay again and recommend to anyone. (We didn't notice any mold).
Spent 5 wonderful nights Sheraton mid April. Everything was fabulous except the proximity of that railway line. Staff, rooms, restaurant, pool, etc everything you could hope for. Thanks to all the staff.
Decent hotel, but loud
After the two previous reviews, I felt compelled to write in. We stayed at the Sheraton Suites 3/7-3/11. It is a perfectly decent hotel, very roomy, clean, well maintained. The only problem is the aformentioned train(s). If you are not a heavy sleeper, definitely do anything you can to get a room on the side of the hotel away from the tracks. Those rooms are fairly quiet. The ones facing the train are pretty loud. But that aside, this is a nice hotel. All of the rooms are two-room suites that open onto a pleasant atrium area with fountains and a restaurant.
While we were there, they changed over to the "Sheraton Sweet Sleeper" beds. We weren't too impressed. They seemed like normal beds. All in all, this hotel is a good value if you get the right room.
GOD AWFUL! Mold City
This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. The room smelled like mold, there is TRAIN that passes all night long. The street noise was just too loud. I could not sleep. The rooms & bed are very old. The rooms need updating and my god, the mold smell was just awful. We had bugs in our bed. Hotel staff did nothing to help the pest control. Carpet was old and dirty. Dust all over the TV stand & table , chairs, etc... There was NO hot water during my stay. Cold water every morning! I had to call for towels every morning, no coffe on 2 mornings, My door key did not work for 3 days! Restaurant service was terrible. The food was not acceptable. I will never ever stay at a Sheraton hotel.
Mold smell every where! I hate this hotel. I would let my dog sleep on the floor! No towels or coffee for 2 days! Bugs in my bed, and the MOLD! everywhere! Sheets dirty & dust everywhere! Please do NOT stay at this hotel!
A little loud but a good deal
I stayed at this property recently, and I must say the rooms are great, the pool is great, restaurant is great, services are great, but that %#**@$ train that comes through in the morning is not a pleasant wake up call.
We stayed here Oct. 23rd and 24th. This is a beautiful hotel with and excellent staff. The rooms are clean and very large. We had a great stay and would highly recommend it.
Bad , bad bad
bad,bad,bad, pool was dirty (closed)frontdesk very rude ( maral i think that was here name) will never stay there again!!!!!!!!!
Sheraton Suites an island of luxury
I stayed at the Sheraton Suites Cypress Creek on a business trip a few years ago, but it still stands out in my mind. If you like Mediterranean ambiance with a touch of the tropical, this is the place.
The atrium is real lush, with lots of live plants, flower urns and running water. The room I had was plenty large and had all the amenities, including a dining room with kitchenette. The staff is friendly but not intrusive. Best of all, it is within walking distance of a number of restaurants accommodating a wide range of diet or budget. If you get a room on the back side, your window will overlook a geyser in a neighboring business park.
Great accomodation and service
Staff about as good and friendly as they get. Spacious luxurious rooms. A big recommendation if you stay in Ft. Lauderdale area.
