The Best Fort Lauderdale Hotels
Fort Lauderdale has been ranked one of the best places to live in the US. But it’s also an amazing city to visit on vacation. There are excellent shopping venues, trendy cafes, art galleries, and stunning beaches. There are also so many amazing Fort Lauderdale hotels.
While there are always ways to find cheap accommodation, I want you to find the best hotel for your budget and style. Whether you want the peak of luxury or the best bang for your buck, I’ve got you covered. I used my own experience and research to give you the best list of Fort Lauderdale hotels.
I should also mention that I am not sponsored by any of the locations. You are getting my true and honest opinion. Also, prices may have changed since publication. So double check rates.
If you want the perfect experience in Fort Lauderdale, consider staying in one of these luxury hotels. You’ll find the perfect room in the perfect location. And now the best part: compared to other travel destinations like Santorini or Paris, the rooms really aren’t that expensive.
The Conrad Fort Lauderdale Beach
The Conrad brings out the best of Fort Lauderdale. Here you can find romantic, ocean views and fun, poolside bars and grills. The suites are polished and elegant, and the service matches all expectations.
As the biggest name in the hotel industry, the Ritz always promises a wonderful experience. The Fort Lauderdale Ritz brings a casual elegance. It has a spa, pool, and all the amenities you could want. But it never feels gawdy or forced.
Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club
Lago Mar isn’t like the other luxury hotels. It’s a family-owned resort set on ten acres of pools, tennis courts, private beaches, and ocean-view suites. The hotel may be four stars, but it delivers five star service.
The Pillars Hotel & Club
The Pillars Hotel & Club is an upscale hotel just feet from the beach. It features spacious and modern rooms, a full-service spa, and a waterside restaurant with fresh seafood. This luxurious hotel is also conveniently located on the Intracoastal Waterway, so you can quickly go anywhere from the hotel.
The Pelican Grand Beach Resort
The Pelican Grand Beach Resort brings luxury with a casual, old Florida charm. It offers similar amenities to the hotels above with gorgeous views and elegant dining options. But it is also the best choice for families. Kids will especially enjoy the Lazy River and the zero-entry pool.
Fort Lauderdale Hotels on a Budget
You don’t need to break the bank to get a good hotel in Fort Lauderdale. But you don’t need to compromise on comfort either. Here are some great picks that will give you everything you need without the steep price.
Ocean Manor Beach Resort
Ocean Manor Beach Resort is a chic, beachfront hotel with all the amenities you’d expect from a high-end resort. There is a café, tiki bar, massage services, and a pool overlooking the ocean. You get so much for such a small price.
Royal Beach Palace
Within walking distance of the beach, Royal Beach Palace offers comfort at an unbeatable price. It has all the essentials, including a pool, tiki bar, cocktail lounge, and a shuttle to the airport. You may miss out on the style of a luxury hotel, but you have everything you could possibly need.
Hampton Inn Ft. Lauderdale
As I’m sure you know, the Hampton Inn is a chain. But if it ain’t broke, it don’t need fixing. This is a good choice if you want a more central location. It’s a short distance from all the shops, nightlife, and E Las Olas Blvd.
The Westin Fort Lauderdale
Although not as fancy as Westin’s beachside resort, the Westin Fort Lauderdale still offers an upscale experience. It boasts modern rooms, a charming bistro and bar, and views of a gorgeous, tropical lagoon. The only downside is you are a bit farther from the beach and downtown.
Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach
If you want a more luxurious stay in Fort Lauderdale, take a look at Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach. The suites are chic and spacious. Hugh Taylor Birch State Park is just a walk away, and the beach is on your doorstep. Usually the price is around $200 a night, but I repeatedly find great deals that make the luxury stay affordable. Chances are you will too!
