I haven't stayed in that one, but the Las Olas area is very nice. You can also catch the water taxi there. I Googled it to see where it is located. It's about a mile north of Las Olas Boulevard on Andrews Avenue, which is a decent area of Ft. Lauderdale. I'm sure you could grab a bus from there to get down to Las Olas or a cab shouldn't be very expensive at all.
Sounds like a pretty good deal, especially with free port shuttle.
