Stay Close By All the Action at the BB&T Center

While Fort Lauderdale is world-known for its sparkling beaches, lined with world-class hotels and restaurants and a sizzling and glamorous lifestyle, there is even more that attracts its millions of visitors every year. West of Downtown Fort Lauderdale in the city of Sunrise, Florida is the magnificent BB&T Center. This world-class arena has become the epicenter of Broward County's many sporting events, concerts and political rallies. Home to the Florida Panther's hockey team, this modern facility has been designed to accommodate more than two million customers each year, and noted as being among the top ten venues in the United States. What's more, the BB&T Center is across the street from the popular Sawgrass Mills Mall, Florida's second most tourist attraction after Disney World. So it only makes sense to want to stay close by to enjoy one of the many events here. Within blocks, and even just a few miles, are many hotels  that range in every price range and list of amenities. From such names Doubletree by Hilton, Renaissance, Courtyard by Marriott, Hyatt, La Quinta, Quality Inn and Holiday Inn – all here to accommodate the many visitors that have taken advantage of their proximity to enjoy events at the BB&T Center and have a home-away-from-home to go to not far away. Western Broward County proves that Fort Lauderdale has much to offer aside from its tropical playground.
