Has anyone stayed at the Sheraton Yankee Trader along beach prior to cruise and how was it? (Not Sheraton Clipper) Any tips would be appreciated. Am staying there prior to cruise with my two children. How far from port and Las Olas Blvd? ANy great restaurants in Fort Lauderdale you can recommend?
I know you are asking about the Trader but I can give you some insight on the Clipper since they are both Sheratons. We stayed at the Clipper with our two children over Christmas when our cruise ended on the 24th. We got into our room and found yellow water coming from the taps. We called the desk and maintenance came right away. They checked it and said it was fine. We went to use the bath and it was still yellow. We requested to be moved to another room which they accomodated. However, the water was yellow in our new room.
Anyways, the room was well kept, we were right on the beach, so it was a good 3 nights overall.
Both hotels are only about 15 minutes max to the port. We didn't eat in Ft Lauderdale, opted to take our rental car to Miami Beach for Christmas dinner.
