Apologies in advance for another hotel query, but after browsing the forum I can't find the answer to my specific question so I will try to be as detailed as possible.
My wife and I will need a room in Ft. Lauderdale for one night on Dec 14 before our cruise out of Port Everglades on Dec.15, and another room for one night after we return on Dec. 22 and fly home on Dec. 23. I would like to have shuttle service to and from the airport (FLL) and to Port Everglades the day our ship departs (I understand that I must arrange transportation from Port Everglades back to the hotel on the day we return from our cruise myself, and any hints on how to best do this would also be appreciated).
I am interested in a clean room in a friendly place that is not in a dicey part of town and would like to stay below $200/night if possible. That appears to be no problem for the 22 but not so on the 14. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
