I might be jumping the gun but I'm going to start a hotel poll for those who are going to be sailing on Genesis. If you don't see your favorite Fort Lauderdale hotel listed please select "other" and tell us because I only get 10 entries in the poll and 1 will be other, thus, leaving 9 enteries

I love the Embassy Suites but kind of a hike to the water taxi. So, I'm also voting for the Fort Lauderdale Grand Hilton. Some of you might remember it as the Marriott on the 17th St Causeway. Hope the link works!

I actually like the Courtyard Marriott. It's very close to the terminal.

Love the location of the Grand (Hilton) nothing like watching the ships coming and going and the water taxi isn't that much of a hike...

The Grand has been wonderfully renovated and not that far to the water taxi. Personally, I think it is the best of the list given.

For those who might know the Grand, it's formally the Marriott (the one you could see when leave on the cruise ships from Port Everglades). It gets my vote!

FYI, I do not recommend the Comfort Suites by the port ... two years in a row now I've heard nothing but bad reviews from folks staying there (including my own personal stay there last March).

I've personally stayed at the Embassy Suites by the port (loved it). I'd also recommend the Hilton, Hyatt, and Renaissance (based on reviews from clients or other travel agents).

I wouldn't mind Embassy Suites, I've always enjoyed them anytime I've stayed with them.

I like to point out that Embassy Suites is right on the 17th Avenue Causeway, has an easy walk to Water Taxi and I think it would suit most of your needs except those who are looking for lower priced hotels. Here's the link for the Embassy Suites, Fort Lauderdale:

The nice thing about the Embassy Suites is the nightly manager's reception and the daily cooked to order breakfast. And anyone belonging to Hilton Honors would earn points there as well.

I know that the FLL Embassy suites will allow up to 100 rooms maximum to be blocked into group space on any given night (total, not per group). So the SECOND that we have a date for the inaugural, I can request to block space (assuming RCCL didn't beat us to the punch before announcing the sail date Wink ).

What the next best hotel after Embassy Suites?
