By a shopping center and Port Everglades
Hyatt Place Fort Lauderdale is right by a shopping center and Port Everglades, a cruise terminal.
Unlike many Fort Lauderdale hotels, this hotel is not located on the beach (it's a 5-minute drive away). It's a short drive from the airport as well, and Port Everglades, a cruise terminal from which numerous cruise ships leave daily.
As at other Hyatt Places, the Hyatt Place Fort Lauderdale's lobby is best described as "Starbucks chic," with warm colors and a prominent 24-hour cafe. Rooms are large and contemporary (if not quite stylish) and all have separate living areas and flat-screen TVs. The location is convenient for business travelers making a quick trip and people going on cruises leaving from Fort Everglades, and freebies (breakfast, Wi-Fi, self-parking) add value -- but it's not on the beach, unlike most Fort Lauderdale hotels.
