If you are interested in the Holiday Inn Express Fort Lauderdale Airport South, check rates, view our own maps, pictures and videos, enjoy our own unbiased comments and read Tripadvisor reviews.


This Holiday Inn Express is south of Fort Lauderdale Airport in the downtown Dania Beach area.

Here you will find a group of affordable chain hotels within easy reach of both the airport and cruise terminals.

It is not a particularly interesting/attractive area and after dark the streets get quiet. The Casino at Dania Beach is the main attraction just a short ride away (do not walk, call the FREE casino shuttle on most days).

During business hours you may enjoy antique shopping along Route 1 south of the hotel. There are also a small selection of local restaurants and ice cream choices to choose from – all within 4 blocks or so.

The nearest shopping center with a Publix grocery store (they sell wine and beer) is along A1A across from the Casino. Take an Uber or taxi as it is a bit too far to walk. No liquor Stores in the area (perhaps because of the casino?)

As stated above, this area is an excellent though quiet choice for cruisers looking for hotel values near the cruise terminals.
