Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
We absolutely LOVED the convenience of being 15 minutes away from everything in Fort Lauderdale. We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in Dania Beach, which was 15 minutes away from the airport. They came quickly in a complimentary van to pick us up, and the ride to the hotel was quick. The only negative about the hotel is that there is nothing else around it, so one needs a car or taxi to get around. We had friends come down from northern Florida, so we were able to have a wonderful lunch at the Rustic Inn Crab Shack. The next morning, the hotel organized the shuttle for the 3 cruise ships that were in town, and we were swept quickly to the cruise terminal. Finally, upon our disembarkation, we had a seamless departure through Customs and out the door to awaiting cabs. All personnel kept the foot traffic moving and signs clearly marked where to go. A fantastic location from a proximity perspective!!!!
