Marriott International, Inc.® (NASDAQ: MAR) today announced the opening of Four Points Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port, the brand’s 13th property in Florida and first in the Fort Lauderdale area. Catering to the needs of today’s everyday traveler, the hotel offers approachable design, stylish comfort and all the brand’s popular extras, detailed below.

Developed and renovated by Shelini Hospitality Ft. Lauderdale LLC, Four Points Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port features 112 spacious guest rooms and 1,200 square feet of flexible meeting space. The space was fully updated and completed on October 27th, 2017 including the guest rooms, fitness center, lobby, meeting spaces, 24-hour fitness center, an outdoor heated pool, business center and fast and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. Guests will enjoy full-service dining at the hotel pub and the brand’s iconic Best Brews and BBQ™, which includes refreshing local beers and seasonal BBQ-style appetizers.

Four Points Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port is 4 miles away from a free shuttle to Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) and just over a mile away are Port Everglades and the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center. The property is close to nearby beaches such as Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, and Pompano as well as nearby shops, restaurants, bars, and clubs.

“Opening a property in the Sunshine State is always a no-brainer,” said Callette Nielsen, Vice President & Global Brand Manager of Courtyard, Fairfield, Four Points, and SpringHill Suites. “With its proximity to the water and Convention Center, Four Points Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port will provide the everyday traveler with a comfortable, reliable option every time.”

The Four Points by Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Airport/Cruise Port hotel officially opened its doors as a newly branded property on October 27th, 2017. The ownership group began a massive renovation on the property in early 2016 focusing on revitalizing, modernizing, and refining every aspect of the hotel. The property has revamped meeting venues, modern guest rooms, and a newly built restaurant, 1800 Bistro& Bar. 1800 Bistro & Bar offers an eclectic a la carte menu and refreshing signature cocktails, premium wines, and local craft beers. Located at 1800 South Federal Highway, the property is conveniently located near major transportation hubs and some of Florida’s most beautiful beaches.
