How it Ranks: The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale ranks #1 out of 368 Fort Lauderdale Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.

Our Take: The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale does not disappoint. The hotel's modern decor is accented by crisp cream and warm brown colors, the lobby is crafted out of gorgeous marble, high-tech gadgetry is everywhere, and private balconies adjoin every guest room. Along with the Atlantic Ocean views, rooms also boast 400-thread-count Frette linens, 37-inch flat-screen TVs and spacious marble baths. Travelers recommend requesting accommodations on a higher floor so that your ocean views aren't blocked by palm trees. Guests can't quite seem to determine what they like most about this hotel, praising the Ritz's luxurious fixings and posh perks like poolside lobster wraps. (And should you desire something a little more filling, reserve a table at Via Luna for stellar Italian fare.) But there are two points all reviewers seem to agree on: Both the beachfront location and the stellar service staff receive high praise across the board.
