Ft. Lauderdale area hotel spot?
Just like Cory's earlier post, Im also looking for a nice hotel with sandy beaches that doesnt cost a ton of dough, somewhere near Ft. Lauderdale. We're a 20-something couple who would like less nighclubs and shopping centers and instead find more relaxation/good atmosphere/mai-tais. Can you recommend a hotel or a beach community not a million miles from the airport?

I think that you should try Lauderdale by the sea

We stayed at 2 different hotels in Ft. Lauderdale. One was a Best Western, and the other the Sheraton Clipper. Depends on when you are going as to the prices. The Sheraton is old, tired, but was adequate and had a great location. One of the buildings sits right on the Beach. The nicest is the Marriott Beach Towers, however, more expensive. The Best Western sat right on the beach, had a nice stretch of beach in front of it with nice little balconies. I think it was Pelican Inn. (Pelican something) can't remember the exact name. It was very clean, had a nice staff, and included a nice continental breakfast. Both about 10-15 minutes from airport.

The &quot;other&quot; travel website that starts with &quot;fromm...&quot; had an article about this in it's magazine awhile back. Maybe your library has it, or it was also posted online. I cannot vouch for how good the accomodations are, but many stays of what I have found in &quot;Budget Travel&quot; have been great.
