Going to check into the Sheraton near the office before meeting Chris; I’ll let the hotel worry about my luggage instead of having it in the car all day.
Many of the hotels are set up with a small, three story or so section out front, on top of which is the pool and a walkway across the highway to get to the beach. The hotel tower is behind this section.
Stopped at the bar by the pool for a drink.
There’s an elevator that takes you up from the street to the skyway and back to the pool.
This is the skyway that goes over the road from the hotel to the beach.
I think if I wanted to come back to Fort Lauderdale someday, I could probably use Starwood points to stay at this new W Hotel.
I’m standing across the street at the beach. Had to snap quickly between two-way traffic!
Up on the pool deck, looking across the road at the beach.
This one goes between two towers of the Sheraton Yankee Trader
Most hotels are like three stories in the front section/adjacent to the road, and then the tower is behind it. On top of the short front section is the hotel pool and bar.
There are skyways all over the place between sections of hotels, and between hotels and the beach. You have to cross A1A to get to the beach, so it’s better to have a skyway and then an elevator down to street level than it is to have tourists holding up traffic and possibly going splat in the road.
Lots of Sheraton hotels leave FREE bottles of water in the room for Starwood guests – lucky me!
The sun has just set, and the newborn baby moon looks tiny and lonely in the sky.
