Rent a car or not?

Going to Harbor Beach Marriott for a long weekend (4 days). Debating renting a car or not. What is the cost for a taxi from the airport to the hotel? Also wanted to see Las Olas, Galleria Mall, and go to mass. Would I be better off taking the cabs or sun trolly? Are there restaurants within walking distance from the hotel? Parking is included in my rate.

Lulutoo you were right in all of your advice re Fort Lauderdale. Ocean Sky resort was not great but Ocean grille was perfect for what I wanted. Thanks for all your help.

Thanks and sorry I wasn't wrong with my feeling about Ocean Sky- that little Oceans Grille is quite a gem for those who are staying up this way- you certainly don't want to dine in that hotel!

I hope the lovely weather made up for the hotel- I had heard they were trying to turn it around, but I guess not really getting it done- a shame really..it's got a nice beachfront... the hotel next to it Ocean Manor is even worse , sad to say.. while the condos all around the two are really very nice- I think they are embarrassed by having those hotels as neighbors.

I saw some 5 * reviews for Ocean Sky and wondered about them- now I'll trust my own instincts...

The wynn dixie and CVS are covinient (like you pointed out) and my wife went to American Nail on Saturday morning for a pedicure and she was very happy with it. The blackenned trio in Oceans Grille was very tasty.. Thanks again.
