The historic Sheraton Fort Lauderdale Beach Hotel and owner Starwood Hotel & Resorts are parting ways next month.

According to the Sun-Sentinel, the Sheraton will end its relationship with the Starwood Brand on Dec. 2. Reservations after that date would not be eligible for Starwood Preferred Guest benefits. Representatives would not comment further, nor reveal whether the hotel is up for sale.

In 1956, owner Bob Gill Jr.  opened the 486-room hotel, then known as the Sheraton Yankee Clipper. It was designed to look like a cruise ship and played host to a number of film sets over the years, including the 1999 movie “Analyze This,” starring Robert DeNiro and Billy Crystal.

In 2005, Gill sold the Yankee Clipper, which embarked on a multi-million dollar renovation of the property that was completed in 2010. [Sun-Sentinel] – Jennifer White Karp
