Bottom Line

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the Intracoastal Waterway, a drive from the beach

There's not much around this Hilton aside from the marina, and it's a drive away from the beach (although only a three-minute one). Plan to drive west into Fort Lauderdale to find most restaurants, bars (including the Elbo Room), shops, and the Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop (a large outdoor flea market and home of the world's largest drive-in movie theater).

Once a major spring break hub, Fort Lauderdale has undergone a huge transformation in the last few years, now attracting a more affluent crowd looking for sun and relatively quiet days by the beach. Huge, luxurious yachts can be seen everywhere, especially docked in front of the beautiful houses lining the pretty waterways. The city is still full of bars, restaurants, and shops, but the hard partiers have moved elsewhere, giving way to a few luxury hotels and a handful of fine dining options.

  • 10-minute drive to Fort Lauderdale International Airport
  • 35-minute drive to Miami International Airport
  • 6-minute walk to the Broward County Convention Center
  • 3-minute drive to the beach
  • 5-minute drive to to Bonnet Gardens
  • 5-minute drive to Las Olas Boulevard, a strip of restaurants, bars, and clubs
  • 7-minute drive to downtown Fort Lauderdale
  • 13-minute drive to Fort Lauderdale Swap Shop
  • 32-minute drive to Miami
  • 1-hour drive to Palm Beach

 Bottom Line

The Hilton Fort Lauderdale, located on the Intracoastal Waterway, has beautiful marina views and is convenient for those who are docking their boats. It's a good value, with a large pool and modern, well-kept, contemporary rooms, but there's a downside -- getting to the beach requires a car (although the hotel provides a free shuttle service).
