Rated 1 out of 5 by Katie1981 does not live up to SPG standards
As an experienced traveler who prefers to stay within the SPG brand, this stay with Sheraton is definitely not what I expected. The staff was rude and the housekeeping gathered outside of our room early in the morning and was very loud and inappropriate. The elevators were slow or non existent and were usually occupied by housekeeping.
We would not recommend staying at this hotel.

I am from the icy waters of New England and found the unheated pool too cold to swim in. Great location and wonderful two room suites. No other complaints.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DJP55 Excellent Stay
My wife and I stayed for 7 days in late December 2014. We had read the prior reviews and were somewhat apprehensive, but we had a wonderful stay and would recommend it.
Reasons we enjoyed our stay included
* VIP Concierge, Annie Le, reached out to me prior to our trip and ask if she could do anything to make our stay more enjoyable. I mentioned it was our anniversary and she was nice enough to provide us with a perk that we appreciated
* free parking and free internet
* only 4,000 SPG points (a great value)
* solid breakfast buffet
* gym and pool were fine
* unique layout
* clean rooms
* courteous staff
We did have a couple of issues with our room (A/C made too much noise and then an issue with the toilet). Both were resolved same day.
For a Category 2 hotel, I think this place is fantastic value. We'll definitely stay there the next time we're in Ft Lauderdale.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Jackie27 Bad experience
I stayed at this hotel several times through out last several years. The stay this week was the worst of all.
Monday morning, water will not drain in bathtub.
Wednesday morning, the fruit had rotten smell in breakfast buffet.
Friday morning, there was no hot water for shower.
For water drain issue, the hotel fixed the same day after I reported. I did not go back for breakfast after Wednesday. I ended up taking shower in cold water on Friday, since that was my check out date.
I believe that water drain and rotten fruit could be prevented if hotel pays attention to service.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frustrated77 Horrible. Not clean at all.
I stayed at this hotel June 2012. It was a terrible experience. We arrived to find a room that was not even cleaned. Where do I start.......The grout on the bathroom floor was brown it was so dirty. The tub had a layer of soap scrum on it as well as the walls. In the corners of the bathroom there was dirt and around the toilet there was spots. We were staying in this hotel on our way to our resort the next day so my expectations were not very high. However, I do expect the bathroom in any hotel to be clean and disinfected. It was late when we arrived (after 10 pm) but I could not stay in that room and requested another room. I showed the front desk rep pictures of my room and they apologized and immediately switched my room. The next room was no better but since I had a one year old with me and a tired husband I went ahead and stayed in the room. I laid a bath towel in the tub and stood on it while I took a shower.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BoCobbs Worst Sheraton Experience
This particular hotel (Sheraton) located 555 N.W. 62nd St Fort Lauderdale Florida 3309 was the worst Sheraton hotel experience to date in my life. I am an SPG customer. I had two roaches in my room, one of which was on the bed.

Throughout the years we have stayed in many Starwood properties. We find it hard to believe that you have not upgraded this property. We were given no recognition for being Starwood members. Room location and room condition were horrible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sadie835 I expected more....
Lots of things were wrong with this stay.... the tv didn't work in the bedroom. We had trouble with the keys (so did our friends in two other rooms) Their answer was don't put your key near your cell phone. We brought our dog but they put us on the 8th floor. Not an easy potty run when you have to wait for an elevator that is really slow. I do appreciate that my dog was allowed almost anywhere in the hotel with no size limit etc. There was no Do Not Disturb signs.... another thing needed when you have a dog. No channel guide. No regular trashcan in the main room but we had a recycling trashcan. Just so many little things that by the end of the night added up to a lot of frustration. This was not worth what we paid at all. Especially with the key issues since we stood in line with others at midnight to get new keys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GoFSU The little things
Although I would rate our overall stay a 5, I was disappointed that wifi in the room was an extra $10.00. In today's world, wifi should be STANDARD in every room. I have to be honest, I stay at many hotels throughout the country and I never pay for wifi. When I went to the lobby to use the "free" wifi, the signal was marginal at best. Why leave a sour taste when the wifi is already there? I hate to think hotels will be the next to add little fee's like the airline industry.
The last thing was that there was no bedding for the pull pout couch. When we went to the desk to get it, it seemed like it was an imposition. When you take the time to include that on your reservation, should it be a surprise when it is requested?

Rated 1 out of 5 by bone425 Vegetarians not welcome
We found a MARROW BONE behind the front curtain of room 425. We called the desk, put it outside the door and it was STILL THERE next morning. We brought it to the front desk; the manager obviously was not up to the task of handling that OR the cleanliness issue OR a bill issue. The beautiful grotto belies a disgusting, foul and unorganized mess.

Rated 1 out of 5 by SeasonedTraveler Not happy at all!!!!!!
I'm highly disappointed in this hotel. I read several reviews of this hotel that were quite positive. However, I struggled to find anything positive about this hotel. The hotel was full of unrulely kids and the hotel security did nothing about them until about midnight. Also, the room wasn't clean at all. I felt dirty the entire time I was there. Futhermore, when I got home I found my suitcase filled with ants. The thing I'm most upset about is that I used my Starwood Preferred Guest points to book this stay. I won't ever get those points back either. What a waste.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ljv5555 If you like 'em dirty...
This place is DIRTY. Apparently it used to be another brand of hotel. Since then it looks like the only thing they remodeled was the Lobby, which looks great. Beyond that, it looks to have the old carpet, paint, etc. My first room had NOT been cleaned so I had them move me. The next room was better but still very dirty. There is no airport shuttle and they did not offer to provide a driver to meet me at the airport when I called to inquire about a shuttle. I would have gladly paid for one. The staff was very friendly though and did provide half decent service. The restaurant seemed to always close early as well. Also, WiFi is free at most hotels but it is around $10/day here. The cable TV service was not good (there were not many channels and NO premium movie channels).
There are almost no outlets to plug in your computer. I was unable to use my computer while sitting on the bed.
The furniture looks like it is 2nd hand from another hotel.
The table in the sitting room has outlets on it but they did not work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bonjing Poor staffing/beds
Arrived at 7:00 pm and had to wait 20 minutes in line with only one associate serving guests. Was then told no breakfast for Platinum members which has changed in just a couple months. Bed is as firm as...well just put your own description in here, and leaving on Tuesday morning at 9:15, had to wait 15 minutes until finally asking the bellhop to check on someone in the office. Girl who came out several minutes later would be better served selling mascara behind a mall counter than running a hotel. Poor staffing, beds but you get what you pay for.

Impressive lobby area and atrium. Pleasant pool area. Rooms generally comfortable but bathroom is rather tiny given the size of the room, and stained upholstery in the sitting area was a bit of a put off. My one major complaint however was the inadequate air conditionning - we never managed to set a comfortable temperature even when we set the thermostat into the lhigh 60s! Front desk staff are generally welcoming but should not be tasked with providing pool towels along with everything else - standing in line at the front desk to get a pool towel is not in keeping with Sheraton standards.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AaronT Meh...
Was expecting more from this hotel, but instead got a pretty typical stay for a lower end Sheraton. The lobby is nice, but its pretty much downhill from there.
The room was dirty. Nothing that you'd really see if you were glazing over things, but with two kids that spend a lot of time on the floor I was grossed out pretty quickly. Our door had apparently been broken down at some point because the security latch was snapped off and there were obvious crow bar marks on the outside of the door frame. You'd think this would have been fixed immediately after it happened, but we had to ask the front desk to make the repair.
Speaking of the front desk I think they were short on staff while we were there because most of the people that were on shift didn't know the hotel's policies or much about the surrounding area. When I asked for the concierge I was put on hold and then told that the front desk is the concierge. Not really much help at all.
Didn't eat there, but had coffee in the AM where the attendant hardly paid attention to us. There are some nice water features around the restaurant area, but only go to make up for deficiencies at the other ends of the property.
Overall, would only stay here again if it was for an overnight. Using this hotel as part of a family vacation is not recommended.

Upon arrival I had to wait 10 Minute for the front desk staff. (I was the only one there). Room had a stained dirty carpet, but it was vacuumed. There was glass ring stains on the countertops, bathroom counter was stained. Bed sheets were down halfway on the sides of the mattress. It took 3 tries to get someone from the front desk on the phone. There was a $10.00 fee to use the internet. Cup of yogurt and a muffin for breakfast cost me $15.00. Disappointed

Rated 4 out of 5 by NJAG Great Experience
Overall experience was very good. The property is nicely decorated. Checking in was a breeze and staff was very friendly. I had to change room type because I had more family members arriving the next day. I was put in a "waiting" list because the hotel was full. The very next day I got a call to let me know they got me a room with two beds. I was very pleased. Now I was informed that as a Platinum member they had a separate area for breakfast. Next morning I headed to the clubhouse for breakfast. The variety was VERY limited (compared to the "regular" breakfast area). They had the "basics" this area (clubhouse) only had eggs, fruits, coffee/chocolate, some pastries, OJ, and sodas. VS the "regular" area that had all that plus, bacon, sausage, potatoes, and other items. Not to mention that the person that took care of us "Monica" was superb.. she was very friendly and accommodating. always checking if we needed anything else. so it will go without saying that I only had breakfast in the clubhouse once. The good thing of the clubhouse is that with your key you can get in at anytime and grab a granola bar, fruits, water, and sodas at any time. the coffee machine in the clubhouse only worked the first day. after that the machine was always broke. rooms are nice and with plenty of room.... I really enjoyed staying at this hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephen12 Worth the remodeling dust
We spent a month here during the restoration of the hotel. There was dust and noise during the day but the staff was so apologetic and kind. The place is really starting to come into the modern times. They have new beds and new carpets. The bar area has been remodeled and looking good. The pool area is about to be remodeled in the off season. The staff member Annie Li was without question one of the best hotel staff people we have run into in the 15 years of traveling. She made the bad parts of the construction go as smooth a silk. God bless her! Sheraton should clone her, they could use a few hundred just like her.

This hotel is so beautiful and the staff was so nice and friendly and I rate their customer service at a 100%. The hotel lobby is so beautiful that I thought I was in Italy and the main area, where the restaurant and bar is located, made me feel like I was in Hawaii with the cooling water fall. I especially loved that the pond had beautiful coy fishes and several large turtles. It was off season when we stood there so it was very quite, but that didn't keep the staff from offering excellent customer service. I liked that the rooms are actual suites, which made us feel very comfortable and homey. I could go on and on about this great hotel, but I'm sure you get the idea.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Graham16 Disappointed this time
I'm a member of Starwood. Proud of it!
I love staying at the Sheraton Suites Hotel
because: The room price is good; It's close to where my long-time friends are; The staff is very nice & tries hard to please the customers; The rooms are spacious; The beds are comfortable;
There's a large bathtub to soak in, etc.
I entertain my friends for meals at different hotels & restaurants while visiting Ft Laud. I seldom choose Sheraton Suites Hotel because the food is over priced for what you get.
BAD EXPERIENCE LAST FRIDAY:
I stayed overnight at the Sheraton Suites Hotel / Cypress Cypress Creek:
1. Two light bulbs were out in the
bedroom. (two different lamps)
2. One lamp in the living room
had a 3-way bulb. Only worked
one way. The other 2 switches
didn't work at all.
3. One long black hair in the bathtub.
4. Two electrical outlets didn't work.
(In bathroom & in the bar)
Had to use the hairdryer in the
bar area. Not enough lighting in
the bedroom - bulbs out.
5. Coffee maker didn't work.
(called & had it exchanged)
6. Restaurant price was outrageous!
Very pretty - although the center of the hotel could use some color with the greenery.
Food at the Sheraton Suites Hotel is average & over-priced.
Last Friday I ate breakfast downstairs
myself. I paid a whopping $22 for breakfast with the tip included. (also
included a glass of orange juice for the price of $4.50). The breakfast wasn't that special.
When I stay at Sheraton Suites, I usually
have breakfast down the street at the following places. Meals are better and half the price:
Peter Pan Diner

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sperry8 An old hotel - but priced right
This is an older hotel in need of renovation, but the price is right. The rooms are all suites and you get a little refrigerator and nice living room. The pool is nice - although the seating area is average, but they do have a nice hot Jacuzzi. Sadly, they make you go to the front desk to get/return towels. The staff is super friendly and parking is free. Platinum guests aren't upgraded (since every room is a suite), but they do get free breakfast. It's a decent spread - nothing fancy, but will help you start your day right. Eggs, bacon, potatoes, & yummy fruit. I'd stay here again, especially for the price.

This was our second visit. Staff was as friendly and accommodating as the first time.
Check in was quick and friendly, maids were very nice and willing to provide extra towels, etc.
Parking is free, and the room format (living room, sink with fridge, microwave, coffee maker) is great; gave the wife and me plenty of room to "stretch out". The bathroom is large enough, and the dressing area, with two sinks, is a great idea.
Overall, I'd stay here again and again, while visiting the area.

I was nervous to stay here after reading reviews but took a chance and so glad I did. Room was excellent size and very comfortable. I love having a sitting room, fridge and microwave. So many don't offer these conveniences anymore or only for extra charge. Two things I wasn't crazy about was the size of bathroom (a little small) and that you had to pay for in room Internet - parking was free though! Staying again next week - it will be a hotel of choice when visiting this area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Joe53 WOW!
This was my 3d stay at this hotel. The first 2 stays were just ok. Now that new management is there, this hotel has become what the Sheraton name represents. I want to especially thank Miss Stevens at the desk as well as the food and beverage manger whose name escapes me at the moment. Miss Stevens went above and beyond with her knowledge and great interpersonal skills. This hotel has now become a MUST stay when in South Florida. The grounds were spotless as well as the pool area and of course the rooms. We were there this time for a loved one in her time of need and Miss Stevens as well as the Sheraton staff made this trip much easier for my family. Thanks so very much for a great stay at Sheraton Cypress Creek! 5 stars is not enough...maybe 1000 stars!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by plm209 An underwhelming experience
Compared to other Sheraton hotels I've stayed in, this one left me wanting more.
The Good: Comfortable beds, large rooms, gorgeous lobby, clean bedroom
The Bad: Tiny bathrooms, unfriendly/unattentive staff, worn towels, unclean sitting room and bathroom
I typically expect to be treated with a smile whenever I interact with a hotel employee. This was not the case at this hotel. Everyone seemed like they were unhappy to be working there and that the guests were just an annoyance. I had breakfast in the hotel restaurant each day and the servers were so disgruntled that I almost felt bad asking for a glass of water. The cleaning staff had poor attention to detail. As an example, I ate lunch in my room each day and would leave the napkin/dish/silverwear neatly piled outside my door prior to my room being serviced. At one point, there was three days worth of items piled up and nothing was done about it. To me, I would want to take care of items in the hall quickly to maintain a clean appearance. The towels were threadbare on several occasions and one even had several holes in it. Once again, not what I expect from Sheraton.
On the positive side, the bedding was clean and comfortable, and that is what really matters most in the end. The living room area was not well maintained, as I returned to find a sticky gel on the countertop twice during my stay.
I would not stay here again unless required to for business.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JustPassingThrough Maybe not the best for a tired one night stop-over
I stayed just one brief night between a long day of road travel and a long day of air travel. So I was tired and perhaps not very tolerant. Nevertheless, I was dismayed to find, after I had returned my rental car, that the hotel does not offer a shuttle service to and from the airport. The additional $45 for a taxi each way seemed like a significant extra expense I had not anticipated. Further, I found the room, though with ample space, to be poorly lit and with a fairly antiquated air conditioning system. There was someone else's hair on the bedroom vanity. The bathroom was small with only a standard residential bathtub (with a drain plug that would not stay open for the use of the shower). The decor of the room seemed outdated to me. When I called to report that I could not access my room because my key cards would not work, I was placed on hold, after which I was told someone would come to help me. When this person arrived, he tested my keycards himself (as if I was mistaken), then asked to see my identification before opening my door for me. He then said that I would have to take my keycards back down to the front desk to have them fixed. I agreed to the terms and fee to access the wireless internet but after returning from having the keycards fixed, the internet was no longer available. I called for help and was transferred to tech support where I was on hold for about 10 minutes. As soon as someone came on the line, the internet modem showed up and I was able to log back on. I made 4 calls from my room to toll-free numbers, yet I was charged $2.29 for each of these toll-free calls. Perhaps because I was there over a Saturday night, at some time of the early evening, music could be heard in my room, coming from the courtyard side. I do not know the source.
