There are no noteworthy hotels in Wilton Manors. We recommend booking a beach hotel on A1A in Fort Lauderdale nearer to Sunrise or Oakland Park Boulevards. (Note: Avoid the stretch of hotels from Las Olas Boulevard Northward to Marriott Beach Place - it's very touristy). The beach is 10 minutes from the wedding venue and Taxi/UBER are both plentiful and inexpensive. Additionally, if you're travelling with a group, we recommend renting an Airbnb in Wilton Manors. We have reserved group rates at the two hotels below. One is 'in the mix' and one is 'in a tranquil spot'.


Cambria Hotel Fort Lauderdale Beach

2231 North Ocean Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33305

$231 night, no resort fee and discounted parking. The rate is available for 1/12-1/15. Please book by 12/12. It's a new hotel in a quiet area across from Ft. Lauderdale beach. If you're looking to be in away from 'the mix' and want tranquility, this is it.

Discount Code - Cox Wedding - Room Block Code BI07V1


AC Hotel by Marriott Fort Lauderdale Beach

3029 Alhambra Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304

$299 night, no resort fee, available 1/12-1/15. Book by 12/12. This hotel is brand new and in the heart of Fort Lauderdale Beach. If you want to be 'in the mix' - this is it!

Things To Do

A few of our favorite spots:

Fort Lauderdale Beach

Florida A1A, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304

We spend a lot of time on the beach and hope you get a chance to enjoy it.

Kaluz Restaurant

3300 East Commercial Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308

One of our favorite spots. Sit on the water and relax. Also, their key lime pie is amazing.

Sunrise Paddleboards, LLC., Kayaks, Snorkel, and Hurley Electric Bike Tours

2520 North Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33305

Rent a kayak and sail around Fort Lauderdale. A go-to for us.

DrYnk Bar & Lounge

2255 Wilton Drive, Wilton Manors, FL 33305

Our local watering hole and gay-ish bar. Recommend the Smokey Old Fashioned!

Catfish Deweys

4003 North Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33309

If you want no frills, fresh local Florida seafood, this is the place. We recommend the stone crab.

Casablanca Cafe

3049 Alhambra Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33304

If you're staying at the beach, MOST places are tourist traps. This 100 year old venerable eatery is a great spot for a bite or drink.

To The Moon

2205 Wilton Drive, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33305

The weirdest, wildest local candy shop. Check it out.
