U.S. News Review

Its ultra-convenient location at the edge of the Intracoastal Waterway makes the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina a popular rest stop for cruise-liner crowds. This Hilton is also less than 2 miles from Fort Lauderdale Beach, a plus for recent visitors who added a few extra days to their trip to enjoy the city. Recent guests recommend asking for a room with a marina view to avoid the noisy 17th Street Causeway. However, even with the scenic views, guests are still disappointed with the dated room decor, despite having access to amenities like flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi (for an additional fee). While here, visitors are also welcome to take advantage of the hotel pool and various dining options. Keep in mind: If you're a Hilton HHonors member you can earn or use points here.

Critic Reviews


“The Hilton Fort Lauderdale, located on the Intracoastal Waterway, has beautiful marina views and is convenient for those who are docking their boats.”


“One of the sleeker new breed of Hiltons, this snazzy, 25-story affair on the beachfront is a quick stroll north of the main nightlife/ dining action.”
