hmm thats a tough one, i would have to say that so far our favorite was the old Marriott Marina Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale, loved the pool area with the bar that butted up to the intercoastal waterway so that people could just dock their boats and walk up to the bar, also it had beautiful grounds and those huge yachts tied up to the long pier that was great for strolling especially at night

Hmmmm we've been upgraded twice at the Westin Europa to a Grand Canal view Suite....they would be pretty hard to beat. We've also had an amazing top floor suite at the Atlantic in Ft. Lauderdale but the view in Venice takes the prize for pre or post cruise stay. Now land vacation hotels, that might be a different story

I enjoyed the Marriott Marina..we had many a pre cruise bash there with the gang! Love the Renaissance in Fll too, just wish they had balconies.

I also loved our stays at Pier 66...before the did a renovation we enjoyed a lanai room, right by the pool..

I have wondered about the Atlantic Hotel..looks great in their ads!

I have been to the Westin Europa in Venice; also have stayed in the Rialto Hotel; right next to the Rialto Bridge in Venice; nice location, nice area. As far as in the states; I have stayed at the Holiday in port of Miami; no big deal; I have stayed at the Conrad, downtown Miami; nice hotel; great views of the port and harbour; I have booked the Marina Hilton Ft. Lauderdale for our pre cruise in Jan; and will be booking the Hyatt Orlando, for a pre cruise stay next Dec.
