Try Hyatt Place just off 17th Street...great location right next door to the Harbor Shopping center, Publix market, restaurants, shops.

Hyatt Place has a shuttle from FLL to their hotel for $2.00 per booked room. Best rates are online with a Hyatt membership.

Comparing hese two choices, I would chose Gallery One because of the location.  There is a water taxi (www.watertaxi.com) stop at the hotel and if you arrive mid-afternoon you have plenty of time to sightsee via water taxi.  You will also be on the Sun Trolley line (www.suntrolley.com) to Las Olas and you can walk to the beach.

What time do you arrive? 🤔  If you are arriving late and only have time for dinner that will affect the choice, compared to arriving early and having time to ride the water taxi, beach, pool, etc.

Whoops....My Bad for offering a very popular pre-cruise hotel on this board.

Shouldn't have assumed you might be interested in another option :classic_blush:

No worries - Hyatt place is too expensive even with my Hyatt membership....  That is why I am not interested.  I have Hilton points to use for a free room.

I have a booking at the Hampton Inn.  I looked hard at the Wyndham and although the pricing is somewhat more attractive I wanted to stay at a place with included breakfast on the north side of the airport.  I did not consider GalleryOne and probably wouldn’t if it doesn’t have airport shuttle.  As far as the water taxi goes, no appeal to me especially if arriving in FLL in the afternoon for an overnight stay.

Then you should stay at the Hilton Ft. Lauderdale Beach, it's right beside the W across A1A from the beach.

The Hilton is beautiful. 

I second the Courtyard Marriott great location wonderful stay. Great hotel rates you should be able to find a nice room in the FLL Beach area for well under $200 a night. Hotwire $100 a night 😉.

Hyatt Place too expensive?? They couldn't pay me to stay there again. Ft. Lauderdale has too many nice hotels and too many great hotel deals to be stuck back there in a corner at the Hyatt Place.

Of your three, I would pick in this order:

 

Gallery One (love the location and the views)

Hampton Inn (not great to walk around at night

Wyndham (not a Dania Beach fan but love Tiki Bar)

 

There is just so much at your fingertips with the Gallery One; shopping, great restaurants, views, the beach, water taxi, etc.

@BlueHerons that is where I ended up.  26,000 points for a 1 night stay!!!! Woohoo! We stayed there Dec 2019 for 2 nights prior and it was awesome - Publix and Starbucks across the street!!!!!!

@BlueHerons

I just switched to the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina.  Located on the 17th street causeway and even less points to boot!

 

we don't cruise til Dec  of this year - fingers crossed it even happens.

There is a water taxi right stop next to the hotel located under the bridge.  Since you are there in December take an evening cruise on the water taxi to see the beautifully decorated houses (mansions is a better descriptive) and yachts.
