... PM, we visit the spa, accompanied by our guide, a finnish woman by the name of Sari. I have an excellent ear, and usually I understand english quite well, but as soon as Sari opens her mouth, I know it's a lost cause. Her accent is terrible and I only distinguish a few words here and there.
We follow her, she introduces us to many people who propose some treatments, ionitherapy, white teethening, acupuncture, and she gives us a lot of brochures with specials.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Fort Lauderdale Airport
I stayed at the Hilton-Ft. Laud airport in April 2007 for a convention that was taking place there. Needless to say after reading the reviews on here, I was slightly concerned. However, from the moment I checked-in to the moment I left, I was very impressed with the facility and service.
I had booked with Wyndam but Hilton bought it out before we arrived. Hilton honoured our reservation and park/fly package. The room had recently been redone with everything new. The service was wonderful, everyone was helpful and friendly. My only complaint was with the parking/valet people. I wanted a cab to go to the port. They called a limo service. It would have been half the price for a cab instead of $8 per person to get to the port for a family of 4.
On a adoré!
J'avais réservé avec Wyndam mais Hilton avait acheté avant notre arrivée. Hilton a honoré notre réservation et notre « park and fly package » (package vacances incluant options et activités).
La chambre avait été refaite récemment et tout était neuf. Le service était incroyable, et tout le monde était gentil et sympathique.
Ma seule plainte concerne les voituriers : je voulais un taxi pour aller au port et ils ont appelé un service de limousines. Ça nous aurait coûté la moitié pour aller au port, et pas $8 par personne pour une famille de 4.
Would never stay again
This place is a dump! I stayed at this same hotel when it was a Wyndham (why I rebooked) and it was 100 times better. We checked into our expensive room to find the toilet clogged and the bathroom filthy. I took forever to switch rooms. I was very upset as it was the first night of a long awaited vacation. I will never stay there again, and I have my doubts about the Hilton experience. I do always have good things to stay about Hampton Inn.
Nous n'y retournerons jamais
Cet endroit est une poubelle! J'ai séjourné dans cet hôtel alors que c'était encore Wyndham (c'est pourquoi j'y suis retourné) et c'était 100 fois mieux.
Nous sommes entrés dans notre chambre très chère pour trouver les toilettes bouchées et la salle de bain dégoûtante. On a mis des lustres à nous changer de chambre. J'étais très mécontente parce que c'était la première nuit de vacances très attendues.
Je n'y retournerai jamais et j'ai vraiment des doutes sur les séjours au Hilton. Mais j'ai toujours de bonnes choses à dire sur les Hampton Inn.
Great one night stay
This hotel was fantasitc. Not sure what all the trouble was before, but I just got back and thought it was up to Hilton standards. The room was clean and in excellant condition. I'm guessing it has be renovated. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is great. My only negative would be the airport. I was only there until 2pm the next day and I couldn't imagine sitting at the pool any longer with the noise from the planes. It's LOUD......Don't bring a family to spend a weekend by the pool. It won't be very relaxing. If it's an overnight stay, then it's A+
This was my first stay and I was very cautious based on previous reviews. I have no problems with this hotel. I consider it one of the best airport hotels at FLL.
The Fort Lauderdale Hilton is a terrible hotel. It was bad when it was the Wyndham and has only become worse since it became a Hilton. The rooms are run of the mill (I've had better 3-star rooms in South America) and the staff are surly. I feel justified in making such a sweeping statement as I've stayed there three times and am currently dreading a fourth return.
I have stayed here on business more times than I can count. This hotel was never my favorite, however they recently changed from a Wyndham to a Hilton and the difference is remarkable.
The rooms were completely remodeled with new beds/furnishings. The rooms are still a bit noisy from passing foot traffic and slamming doors. If you're a light sleeper like me, this can be an issue.
The gym is greatly improved with more cardio machines (with built in flat screen tv's), free weights, universal machine. There is a park next to the hotel, across the bridge, if you prefer to walk/run outside.
The lobby bar is new as is the restaurant menu.
Overall much better than just a month ago.
On January 27, 2006 I made a prepaid reservation at the for the Wyndham Hotel via Hotels.com through one of their partner websites. $153.46 was charged to my credit card account for the room. The terms were that this was nonrefundable. When I arrived at the hotel I was forced to provide a credit card imprint and sign an agreement that I would be personally liable if Hotels.com did not pay. Since I has already paid for the room I had no choice but to do as they asked. The room was not what you would expect from an upscale hotel chain especially one charging premium rates.
