This guarantee applies to room and applicable taxes. This policy is applicable to transient reservations and groups as stipulated in their contracts.

- Any commission owed to travel agents will be paid on the stay interrupted by the hurricane.
- Other expenses including, but not limited to, airfares, food and beverage, or chartered services are not included or covered by this guarantee.
- The guarantee offered by Starwood Hotels and Resorts is subject to change at the discretion of the operator at any time without notice.
- Guests holding confirmed and fully deposited reservations (and are within the non-refundable deposit window) that are unable to travel to the resort due to a hurricane* closing the airport or the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel will be given the option of a full refund or a one room category upgrade, based on space availability, on their next visit to the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel within one year.
