This year’s conference hotel, The Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina, is located on the outskirts of Fort Lauderdale city, in an enviable location within the marina itself. Just 40 minutes’ drive from Miami International Airport, and 10 minutes from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport, the hotel is located right on the water, and minutes away from stunning beaches and upscale outdoor restaurants, bars and boutiques, making it a great base to enjoy an extended stay outside of the conference dates.
This region of Florida is often referred to as the “Venice of America” with its network of boating canals and waterways, accessing the Atlantic Ocean, and providing a haven for lovers of all types of water craft. From small boats to mega yachts and cruise ships, you’ll spot them all during your stay here.
Hiring a car is simple and a cost effective way of getting both to and from the hotel, but also will give you the freedom to explore – whether that’s to enjoy the beautiful beaches lining this region of the west coast, sampling some of the local seafood restaurants, bargain hunting at Sawgrass Mills outlet shopping centre or venturing further afield.
Head back south for a day or two in Miami, or further still for a few nights in the Florida Keys. Travel north to Palm Beach and West Palm Beach to enjoy a luxury seafront break with nights of live music in laid back lounges. Or, it’s even possible to drive on to Orlando from here, and fill up on adrenalin with a visit to one of the theme parks on offer.
It’s hard though to ignore the draw and appeal of staying ‘local’ when Fort Lauderdale and it’s surrounding beach locations have so much to offer. With museums and galleries, shopping and dinning options aplenty, plus not forgetting the beaches…the gorgeous beaches! It’s easy to be forgiven for just staying put and enjoying a relaxing break with some of the best the Sunshine State has to offer, right on your doorstep!
Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina is located 10 minutes from Fort Lauderdale sand and boasts a palm-lined pool area with relaxed eateries serving food inspired by flavours of south Florida, dynamic event space and walking trails around the grounds.
Guest rooms are fresh and comfortable with a nautical-style theme featuring refined furnishings with coastal décor and hues complementing the outdoor views.
