Rodeway Inn & Suites – Fort Lauderdale Airport & Port Everglades Cruise Port Hotel Ready for Arrival of MS Koningsdam

(FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.) – Rodeway Inn & Suites Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port, a budget-friendly, full-service cruise port hotel near Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades Cruise Port and near the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport (FLL), recently completed renovations to prepare for the arrival of Holland America’s newest ship, the MS Koningsdam, into Port Everglades.


To better accommodate the anticipated increased number of guests staying at Rodeway Inn & Suites Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise hotel pre and post cruise, the hotel completed several renovations and upgrades. To help guests easily get luggage to the upper floors of the hotel, a new elevator was installed next to the lobby. To further assist guests with luggage, the hotel introduced new luggage carts available in convenient pick-up points throughout the hotel. All guests staying pre and post cruise receive complimentary shuttle pick-ups and drop-offs to the Fort Lauderdale International Airport and the Port Everglades cruise port. Rodeway Inn is the only cruise hotel in Fort Lauderdale with an early free shuttle to get passengers to their ship for the lunch buffet.


To better serve the Fort Lauderdale cruise hotel’s stay, park & cruise guests, Rodeway refurbished the hotel short-term and long-term parking lots. Stay park & cruise packages offered by Rodeway give guests door-to-door, hassle-free service, and help save money over ala-carte parking and transportation purchases. All long-term parking registration and shuttle service requests are handled via Rodeway Inn & Suites Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port’s integrated proprietary fleet and parking management system for maximum efficiency and guest comfort.


“We are excited to welcome MS Koningsdam to Port Everglades,” stated Izzy Fintz, Hospitality Manager at Rodeway Inn & Suites Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port. “Our hotel’s improvements are our way of welcoming the new ship, and making sure Holland America’s cruise passengers receive top-notch service while staying with us. We are Fort Lauderdale’s top cruise port hotel — we are ready to receive and take great care of MS Koningsdam’s passengers before and after their cruise adventure.”


MS Koningsdam will make Fort Lauderdale’s Port Everglades cruise port its home port after starting in November, 2016. At 2,650 passengers and 1,331 rooms, the MS Koningdam is not only Holland America’s newest, but also its largest ship. The new cruise liner will embark on a series of Caribbean cruises, the first one embarking on November 9th, 2016.
