Red Carpet is in Ft. Lauderdale close to the port and airport (in fact some did complain about the noise of planes overhead, but Ill be out of the room early to go to the port).
I did look on the Red Carpet site and booking the room direct for the same night would cost $100. plus 11% tax. It also says it includes a restaurant and bar on the premises who will do room service.
I plan to tip the shuttle drivers well to make up for them giving me such a good deal.
