Why It's a Deal According to a recent Kayak search, round-trip airfare from Washington, D.C. to Fort Lauderdale starts at $206 in early October (Delta/U.S. Airways). Add to that $513 per person for six nights at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel, and you'd be paying at least $719 to book the parts of this package separately, including taxes and fees. This package gets you the same flights, six nights in Fort Lauderdale, and all taxes and fees, for up to $185 less.
More Extend your vacation with additional nights at the Sheraton Fort Lauderdale from $46 per person, per night. Beach Destinations offers a variety of hotels for this package; for up to $73 less than the standard package price, substitute the three-star Sea Club Resort, or upgrade to the modern, four-star Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort for an additional $437.
