Situated in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort offers a convenient location for visitors traveling by many modes. We’re only about a 15-minute drive from Fort Lauderdale’s airport, and under an hour from Miami International Airport. Taxis, shuttles, and private car services are plentiful at both airports, and you’ll also find all the major rental car companies. Those arriving by car will appreciate our proximity to Interstate 95—and for boaters, the marina is less than a mile away.
Once you’ve arrived, you can easily enjoy the area on foot—it’s a short stroll to the famous Fort Lauderdale strip for shopping, dining, nightlife, and more.
