There are a number of smart hotels outside of Fort Lauderdale International (FLL) Airport. Many of them promise free shuttle service to and from your flight.
As convenient as that might be, the best way to enjoy your trip is with a cheap FLL rental car. This way you can truly take in the city at your leisure as opposed to being dependent on bus, train and shuttle schedules.

It would be a shame to miss a minute of it while waiting for public transportation.
