Fort Lauderdale next week - where to stay, need help ASAP!

Jump to last reply

Hi, booked 3 night trip for DD and myself a few days ago, our first time staying there. Thought I had a condo at the Hilton thru VRBO but the owner just informed me that his wife had already rented it out! w/o his knowledge so I am scrambling.
I am getting a 4* hotel at Fort Lauderdale beach on Hotwire for Wed & Thursday for $150 per night which is fine but if I include Fri the rate goes up to $187 per night.. Looks like it is the W or the B.
We will not have a car & want to be at the beach, close to shopping & mid-priced restaurants, is this the best area to be in? Any suggestions on where we could move for the 3rd night if there is some other area worth exploring? Don't want it to be too far, the cab ride may not be worth the savings. I am afraid to bid on Priceline in case I get the Hyatt 66 which is not on the beach but is included in the beachfront zone..
Any advice would be appreciated, or should I bite the bullet & just pay the $187 for all the 3 days?
Thanks.
