Will be in Fort Lauderdale 3 days prior to cruise. Where would be best hotel to stay at if we are looking to be close to or on the beach , sight seeing, and maybe a little shopping? We will not have a car. Any suggestions for things to see and do also appreciated.
On Priceline, we had the Doubletree Galleria Suites for $75 a night in April. It is two easy blocks from the beach, on the Intercoastal Waterway - Water Taxi $5pp on/off rountridp opportunities - go to LasOlas. It is a $20 taxi ride from the airport/$15 to the port inc. tip. If you bid, this is Ft. Lauderdale beach a 3* hotel. Others in that category are the Doubletree Ocean Side across the street from a water taxi stop, Sheraton Yankee Trader and another Sheraton, both near the beach.
