Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina
Why We Love This Hotel
- U.S. News and Fodor's both list the Hilton among their favorite Fort Lauderdale hotels
- Guests receive complimentary beach shuttle service
- Convenient to Port Everglades and a short drive from downtown Fort Lauderdale
Less than 1.5 miles from Port Everglades, the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina is a popular stopover for cruisers. Whether staying for a night or spending several days in the city, guests will enjoy commanding views of the marina and surrounding area, as well as unfettered access to the hotel pool.
Standard rooms feature either a king bed or two double beds -- most have an outdoor balcony. Free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs with access to HBO, coffee makers and minifridges come included as well. We recommend upgrading to a room looking out on the water for the best views and to minimize noise from nearby 17th Street. Larger groups should consider reserving one of the suites, which include separate bedroom and sitting areas -- some even feature poolside lanais.
Although the Hilton isn't walkable to the ocean, the hotel provides complimentary shuttle service to Fort Lauderdale Beach. The property is also a stop on the Fort Lauderdale water taxi route, allowing guests to explore the city while sightseeing along the canal (for a fee). Boaters will particularly love the 17th Street Yacht Basin -- steps away from the hotel -- equipped with 35 full-service slips for docking.
