What to Expect
The Sheraton Yankee Clipper Resort has been one of Fort Lauderdale’s most famous landmarks since 1956 and is the closest beach hotel to Port Everglades.
It is a popular location with families and couples as well as pre and post cruise passengers looking to spend some time on the beach.
The main yacht harbour of Fort Lauderdale lies to the west of the hotel, allowing guests the chance to walk amongst the boats and enjoy the sights.
An alternative to the beach for guests are the two pools at the resort.
The main pool is situated in a courtyard surrounded by stunning palm trees.
One of the features of the pool is the windows under the water that allow swimmers to see into the famed Wreck Bar and allows those inside to see the pool goers.
A stone sundeck surrounds the beach pool, which is fronted by a second wood sundeck, from where guests can walk directly onto a beautiful beach.
The shore runs 11 miles along the barrier island on which the hotel is situated.
A public waterbus can transport guests to 20 different locations around Fort Lauderdale.
This includes stops at shopping centres and restaurants.
This service runs from mid-morning to after midnight and runs on a schedule, which is available at the concierge desk.
