    staying at the Courtyard Fort Lauderdale Airport & Cruise Port hotel at the moment in 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. internet is good and free if your a marriot member. 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.
