FL Ft Lauderdale Wyndham Airport

The hotel was a typical 3* hotel. Nothing fancy. The clerk did put my Wyndham number in and while I did not get the regular bennies that go along with their program or airline miles, I did get free internet. So, that was a good thing. One thing to note is this is a very busy hotel. Our flight had been delayed and I knew we were going to be late so I called around 7pm to assure them we would be there. As it turns out, we got the last room...

Of note, and if you read the threads above, you will know I had filed a DD Gty with Hotwire and the net room rate worked out to be about $70 after DD Gty and Entertainment $30 coupon. The Wyndham actually provided a detailed statement at check-out which showed an advance deposit paid in April 2005 (when I booked the room thru Hotwire) which I thought was interesting... so this means the room was fully pre-paid and the rate charged/paid was $159 per night. So, not sure who ate the DD Gty difference, as clearly the hotel received $159 per night.

On the plus side, the hotel shuttle was great. The hotel is only about 5 minutes from FLL. I used the phone at baggage claim to call them and they arrived in minutes. The hotel has a nice breakfast buffet for $12.50 per person, includes coff, oj, and hot/cold selections and lots of fruit, bread, bagels, muffins, made to order eggs, etc.

On the con side, the self park is quite a walk (7-10 min) from the elevators and the pool did not look that attractive. Also, there is nothing around here... expect a +/- $15 cab ride to the 17th St Causeway or $20 to Los Olas (assuming you don't get ripped off, of course!).

Would we stay here again? If for a brief overnight, yes... but not for any sort of extended stay.
