The Westin Fort Lauderdale is ideally located for guests to experience the unique combination of dazzling beaches, blue chip businesses, distinguished shopping, and inspiring natural sights that make the city a memorable destination.
Within a short drive are some of Florida’s finest beaches—many of which have been named “Blue Wave Beaches,” certifying them as clean and environmentally responsible, by the Clean Beaches Council. Recharge in the temperate waters of Pompano Beach, snorkel along the reef at Lauderdale-by-the-sea, or get in some deep-sea fishing at historic Dania Beach, all within 15 miles of The Westin Fort Lauderdale. Also nearby is Port Everglades, one of the busiest ports in the world, an essential harbor for both cruise ships and shipping lines.
Las Olas Boulevard is an elegant stretch of fashion boutiques adjoined by art galleries and charming restaurants, and just outside of town is Sawgrass Mills—the largest outlet and value retail shopping destination in the country. This extraordinary hub is home to over 350 stores, where options abound for every budget. The hotel is also conveniently located for business travelers with multiple Fortune 500 company offices in the vicinity.
