Stayed at the Westin Fort Lauderdale. It's in the downtown section and about a 20 minute cab ride. The rooms were very nice (Westin Heavenly Bed) and the grounds were of high quality. You'll be a bit off the beaten path; however, it's a nice property. Also, some of the properties next to the ship are "full" of passengers attempting to get cabs and the like to the ships in the morning, which can turn their lobbies into a bit of a zoo. I prefer to stay a little farther out to avoid the congestion in the morning - just my personal preference.
