Default Hotels in Fort Lauderdale

We are sailing 12/1 on the HAL Veendam for the Eastern Caribbean.
Can anyone suggest a hotel for the night before or are we better
off booking the hotel thru the cruise line?

Hi Rose,
I know there is an Americasuites right at the airport, which is also right next to the pier. Did you want to be close to the pier? I'm sure there are a lot more there as well. You can also check and see what the cruiseline has and how much and then check on your own to compare?? Good Luck and happy cruising.

We love the Marriott Harbour Beach located directly on the beach. Check for AAA rates. They have a wonderful pool area and a great restaurant called"30 30". Also Hyatt Pier 66 is very nice. We always find it is much cheaper to book directly with the hotel. You might want to consider 2 nights pre-cruise and extend your vacation!

Rose, there is an HAL desk in the Marriott Marina and if you get a room overlooking the port you can see all the ships in the morning you sail.

Carole,
Thanks for that good suggestion! Would you know how far the Marriott Marina is from the airport?

Thanks again,
Rose

Marriott Marina is around 2 miles from airport. We've stayed there many times. Love to walk around their docks and view the yachts slipped there.

It's close Rose, perhaps 15 minutes away. anything that's close to the port is also close to the pier. You can actually see the stacks of the ships from the airport!
