Found our place!! A review of Hampton Inn Fort Lauderdale Downtown - City Center
We only spent one night at this hotel, but it was a great experience! Very lovely rooms, clean, loaded with conveniences, free internet, comfy bed, spacious bathroom. There is a little 'shop' located next to the check in counter with drinks (both w/ and w/o alcohol) and frozen dinners, snacks, wine, and last minute items such as bandaids and batteries. I found this to be a genius set up! The parking garage is only accessable by room key which made us feel comfortable parking our car overnight. Of course, the area is very safe anyway and a short walk to the Las Olas excitement! The breakfast was a cute variety of danish, small sandwiches, fruit juice, breads and cereal. My only complaint is that the fruit was a bit too ripe. Also, it is a bit cumbersome to have to use your room card everytime you use the elevator- however, I would rather be inconvenienced than unsafe! We will stay here everytime we visit Ft. Lauderdale.
