Ft. Lauderdale Hotels

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Jason thought these might be of interest to cruisers who want to stay a day or two pre- or post-cruise! These are three of our favorites:

Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach (preferred over the Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Marina!) This one has a great pool/sundeck and a very good Mediterranean restaurant (on the expensive side, though.) It also has a Starbucks on the ground floor that serves great pizzas and paninis. It is right across from Ft. Lauderdale Beach. Most of the balconies angle toward the ocean so has a great view. Rates start at about $129.

Hyatt Pier 66 is on the intracoastal waterway which makes it easy to tool around Ft. Lauderdale on the water taxis. They also have a shuttle to the beach. It has a huge marina - it's kind of fun to see all those fabulous yachts - and a very large pool area. Good steak and seafood restaurant but also some fun casual spots out by the marina. This one is very close to the port. Rates start a $100...

FOR A SPLURGE: Also right on Ft. Lauderdale Beach is The Atlantic. We stayed there two nights before our Panama Canal cruise in March. Sigh :smile: . The room was huge with an entry foyer that led to the two-sink bath area with standup shower, separate tub and enclosed toilet. The closet with dressing table and mirror was to one side of the entry foyer and the sleeping area was on the other. It had a mini-kitchen area and all the standard amenities plus a beautiful balcony - our room faced the portside so we watched all the ships leave each afternoon. Free wi-fi/internet in the rooms, which was very nice. They also had Samsung computer pads in each room. Restaurant served a great breakfast with a lovely porch area overlooking the beach. Rates run around $250...gulp but nice for a special occasion.

The two beach hotels are within walking distance of the Beach Place shopping/dining complex which is fun, and an all-night CVS just in case you forgot something.

Andi, great idea creating a new thread for this. Now it will be easy to find when I need it. All three of them sound alot better than the place we stayed last time.
