Thank you very much for your answer. Just to be more specific we will be spending only one night prior to the cruise arriving from Switzerland on December 19. Among the hotels you mentioned could you tell me if some of them propose a free shuttle to the pier or if I will have to organize the transportation by myself? Thanks. Christophe.

Christophe, none of the hotels that have been mentioned have a complimentary shuttle.
A few do in Fort Lauderdale but they would not be the ones I would recommend to you.
Most of the hotels near the cruise port are relatively close to the airport. Likely a $15.00 (in USA taxi ride) between airport and many of the hotels listed and about the same to the port.
If you want a hotel just for the one night consider the Embassy Suites. It's relatively close to airport and port and close to shopping should you need any last minute items. It includes a very nice breakfast.
If you were staying a few days then I would be recommending several other hotels.
As mentioned Uber or Lyft are other options but if that is not possible for you then the taxi is easy.
Hotels like Embassy Suites allow you to book a shuttle which you can do upon your arrival but to me it is very easy to go with a taxi or the other companies I mentioned.
