Default Yankee Trader or Yankee Clipper?

I am booked on the Century on 09/06/2003 out of Fll. Had a question about pre and post cruise hotel. I will be spending 2 nights pre-cruise and 3 nights post cruise. I'm wanting to stay somewhere that's: 1. On the beach. 2. Near some shopping. 3. Near the nightlife. 4. Not to far from the airport or pier. I have always sailed out of Miami, and have only driven through Fll, so I haven't a clue. Also, am trying to stay away from getting a rental car (Hate to drive).

Any suggestions? I was mulling over the Yankee Trader or Yankee Clipper but can't seem to tell the differance between the two.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts...............

I would like to know the same answer. I actually booked the Yankee Trader through Hotwire in October. In January I booked the Yankee Clipper for three nights. These hotels are older properties from what I have been told, hopefully they are okay.

Choose the Yankee Clipper if you want to be on the beach, as the Yankee Trader is across the street from the beach.

Both hotels are from the 1950's. Both have been improved but still show their age.
I would choose the Yankee Clipper if I wanted to be ON the beach (50% of the rooms are on the beach side of the main road through Fort Lauderdale) and wanted to be closer to the airport and pier.The beach is relatively private. They have resort amenities such as beach umbrellas, etc. You would need a car or use a taxi or the water taxi to get to the major shopping/restaurant area.

Yankee Trader is across the street from the public beach. There is an overhead walkway across the road. You need to bring or rent your own beach things. There are vendors on the beach who rent umbrellas, etc. It is about 10-15 minutes north of the Yankee Clipper. It is closer to Las Olas, but still quite a walk to the shopping/restaurant area of that street.

We cruised on the Century 6/21 and stayed one night prior in the Yankee Clipper. The room was nice, large, clean, hotel on the beach, two pools (the one with porthole windows into the bar was fun!), the food in the restaurant was good-excellent and it was about 5 minutes from the pier. Can't beat it with a stick! Oh and my expedia price was about $100 per night.

Thank you for your help. Booked last night through priceline.com and ended up getting Hyatt Pier 66 for 70.00 a night for three nights. I think thats a good deal. I guess I'll try the Yankee next time around.
Again,
Thanks

Wow, that is a great price for a 4* hotel that is right on the Intercoastal Waterway. You can probably walk to the beach but their pool area is lovely. If you enjoy fish, diner at the 15th Street Fisheries right across the waterway is very good.
Bon Voyage.
