“The good, the bucks, and the beach”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

The Sheraton Ft. Lauderdale Beach Hotel is a nice property. The hotel itself is clean and located only about 15 minutes (taxi $20) from the airport. Be clear when you are requesting your room as there are 3 very different buildings. The staff can be a bit cool and regimented, but overall decent. The rooms are clean and you have the choice of declining housekeeping ("going green") and receiving a $5 in-house voucher per night - which can be exchanged for SPG (Starwood Preferred Guest) points. A sampling of prices include $3 for a cupcake and a small cup of coffee is $2. If you enjoy the sun and sand, the beach is great! You get 2 lounge chairs per room. If you want an umbrella , the cost is $15 for the day. If you prefer the sun and pool, there are two - the infinity pool, which can be crowded or the wreck bar pool, which is enclosed by the building,not very scenic, but much less busy. We have been to this hotel several times, mostly due to its location. The Sun Trolley is very helpful when going short distances. For 50 cents per ride you can go to the Harbor Shops. There is a Publix grocery store where you can purchase reasonably priced beach items, snacks, etc. There are also a variety of other stores and restaurants there.

Room Tip: When making reservations , you will need to specify oceanfront or ocean view. Also one of the 3 bu...

My family and I have stayed at the Ft. Lauderdale Sheraton in the past. We came back because of the location, the convenience, and the service.

We found the service this stay to be exemplary. Every employee 'owned' the hotel! Everyone was approachable and had a positive attitude; how refreshing! We had a fantastic
time.

Lovely rooms, huge comfortable beds but if you are in the South Tower the only view you might have is parked cars or a lower roof. You have to pay for wifi. The restaurant is texmex so if you dont like that you have to go out to eat. Good wee gym and I am told the pool was pleasant although crowded.

Room Tip: Be careful to stipulate that you want a room in the front section.

Excellent: location, service, people,
Average:parking and hotel.
I've stayed 3x in the past 30 days and will stay again soon. This place has many plus signs. Parking is a pain and the hotel is a bit big making for lots of walking with bags. It's a Sheraton not a st regis. And a pretty good Sheraton at that.

My husband and I stayed at this property for 2 nights at the end of May. The location was great. The access to the beach was great. All employees were friendly and attentive. As Starwood Platinum we were given a room with a wonderful view. However, the room was for people with special needs, hence the low closet. My longer dresses when hung doubled up on the floor!!! With all the hotels 'vintage' charm, the guest rooms sorely need a full update and renovation.

I came here for a few days to relax, between stays in backpacker hostels during a long trip around the US. It really wasn't very relaxing at all.

The dining/drinking options were very poor. They have a beautiful pool on the beach with a bar/grill right next to it - however this was always closed. Instead you had to eat inside at the awfully themed Mexican restaurant/nautical bar with no windows. Espresso coffee from the cafe was appalling, although this is to be expected in the US.

Hotel was a maze and difficult to navigate around. Room was fine - bed was the only real Sheraton-quality amenity in the whole hotel.

Sheraton is meant to be a luxury hotel brand - this property was a definite 3 star property.

This property has a a great History and some unique characteristics that make up for some of its shortcomings. Recently updates, ,most of the common areas have seen great improvement and the modern hip look is a huge improvement over what was. The rooms and some of the meeting rooms still feel a bit dated. The pool areas are much improved. The best part of this hotel is the Wreck Bar and Marina the Mermaid and her pod of gorgeous sirens ! The Wreck Bar has large glass windows that look into the bottom of the pool as Marina gives you a sultry and enchanting show. The service in the bar can be slow at times so maybe double up on your drink orders.
