Fort Lauderdale's hotels are nestled along the beaches, on the 17th Street Causeway and near the Fort Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. Other hotels are scattered throughout the area (along the interstate, for example), but most visitors prefer those close to the beach. Boutique-style small lodgings on Birch Road and the vicinity are located conveniently a block from the beach and also have water-taxi access. Lauderdale-by-the-Sea also has boutique lodgings directly on the ocean or across the street from the ocean. A list of gay-friendly accommodations is available from the Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Hotel rates rise during high season (late November-April), and rooms are often hard to come by, so book early. You'll find the best values during shoulder seasons: September to mid-November and May-late August.
