Plane Spotting Fort Lauderdale

The Courtyard Fort Lauderdale Airport And Cruise Port  Updated Nov 2018
Rooms are really nice and clean. There is no restaurant in the hotel, just a bistro on the ground floor where you can get breakfast burritos and omelettes, for evening dining there is a fish restaurant 5 mins walk away and they do steaks also. There isn’t really much around this hotel, there is a garage but its 15-20 mins walk away and climate is very hot humid here.
Location: * Shuttle Bus transfer available from the airport.
Spotting: **

Room 530 could see airport and read off aircraft taking off & landing on runway 10 R .Need SBS for the rest ,any room on floor 5 & 6 with even numbers should see the airport

From room 632 you can see see all departures and arrivals but it can be hard work, if there landing on the far runway which most do then to get the biz jets you will have to go to the window at the end of the corridor because they cut short behind some hangars, all even number rooms on the 5th and 6th floors will give you a view of the airport. You will need SBS or FR24 to get everything

Photos: * No reports but probably too distant.
Value: ** Reasonable at £70 for a twin room

Courtyard Fort Lauderdale Beach     Updated July 2019

Not to be confused with the airport Courtyard, this hotel is actually in the middle of Fort Lauderdale and may appeal to those with partners and families. The hotel is situated on the Fort Lauderdale beach and is in a bustling area with many restaurants and bars in the vicinity. Because of its height (12 floors) Fort Lauderdale movements can be seen from many rooms as well as some Miami inbounds routing along the cost at around 10000 feet.
Location: * Shuttle Bus transfer available from the airport.
Spotting: **

East Facing Rooms face the beach and sea and dependant on wind direction either all arrivals, or all departures will be seen into Fort Lauderdale, plus the Miami inbounds. The pool is at the front of the hotel and has similar views to East facing rooms. Free wifi is available for all locations

Photos: * No reports but probably too distant.
Value: ** Reasonable at £70 for a twin room
