Can anyone recommend a hotel near Port Everglades?
Yes we recommend the Marriott Renaissance at the north entrance to the port near restaurants and easy access to the beach on the Trolley and the Water Taxi. We have stayed there many times, it's in the upper price level but we're okay with it since it is top notch. A $10 cab or Uber ride to the port.We love Renaissance, great hotel

Hyatt Place Convention Center on 10th - next door to Harbor Mall for last minute shopping and near several good dining spots - can be had on valuetrips.com for about $200 plus tax - good breakfast tooJust a warning to anyone reading price postings for any Fort Lauderdale or Miami hotel...if you haven't asked for specific dates, be aware that rates vary considerably between low season (summer) and high season (winter). A hotel that might cost around $100 night in low season will be 2 to 3 times more in high season on a holiday weekend. So when doing your research, make sure you enter your specific dates.
We did the Hampton Inn in Feb, it offers free airport and cruise port shuttle, and a simple but adequate free breakfast. Downside is that there's no restaurants easy walking distance for dinner the evening before... we ended up walking to the mall food court which was still a hike (but we could pick up basics at said mall). Would consider HI again.There are several Hampton Inns. Which one did you stay in? Street address would be helpful if you have it.

Hampton Inn Ft. Lauderdale/Plantation

Back in 2012 we also stayed at
Sleep Inn & Suites Ft. Lauderdale International Airport Lodging
1500 SE 5th Ave, Dania, FL, 33004
Sleep Inn rooms were pretty small, but from what I remember they had an airport shuttle (Cruise shuttle was fee, I think $10pp but was years ago so no clue nowadays), room was tidy, and breakfast was free. I think prices this past Feb seemed high for what SI offered and the HI had a free air & cruise shuttle, and I wanted Hilton points.
If you're in any way affiliated with sports, you may want to look into the Hilton MVP program, google it and see if you're eligible. I've seen some decent deals that way... ymmv
Thanks for the info.Keep in mind that Plantation is about a 20 minute drive from the port,
