Ft. Lauderdale overnight hotel and local advice needed for next week!

Jump to last reply

Need to be in Ft. Lauderdale next week on Thursday night, landing about 10 pm. Leaving the next day at 5 pm. Know nothing about the city or the layout.

Can anyone suggest a hotel or an area that easy (i.e. shuttle or inexpensive cab ride) to get to at that hour, but a place where I would not mind waking up and walking around for a few hours before I leave, so with some things near by to do or not far from beach/interesting streets etc. Not enough time to do anything very complex!

Since such a short trip will probably use hotel points (Starwood, Marriott, Hilton etc.) so any of the major brands would be fine. Trip too short to fuss with much, so just would like to land someplace decently nice and convenient for a few hours of exploration on Friday.

Thanks for any advice.
