We've stayed at the Renaissance, Pier 66, Sheraton Yankee Clipper, TropiRock, Sea Club, Westin, and this time the Sheraton North Beach. The Renaissance and Pier 66 are directly across from the port. Room rate is around 190/night. The TropiRock, Sea Club, Westin, and Sheraton Yankee Clipper are about 5-6 miles from the port. None of them offered shuttle service, but the cab fare was very reasonable. We drive now, so it really doesn't matter to us anymore. There have been many positive reviews about the Sleep Inn in Dania. We've been by there, but have not stayed there. It's a very clean looking property.
I hope you'll let us know how the Allure was when you return. We really enjoyed the Solstice.
