    W Fort Lauderdale

    2.79 miles away

    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    4.5-star Hotel Class
    From its glass-bottom view of the outdoor pool to the funky DJs who spin tunes at said pool, this W likes to throw visitors an über-hip curve-ball. So needless to say, the modern W Fort Lauderdale isn't for everyone: Features like the see-through glass walls in the bathrooms and the loud dance music in the common areas might be a better fit for a younger crowd. But the atmosphere is decidedly more subdued in the minimally designed rooms, which feature comfy beds, flat-screen TVs and iHome stereos. Most rooms were recently renovated in 2016 to include chic blue and white decor. Although some recent guests bemoan the $35 resort fee, sun-seekers found this W outpost's location extremely convenient: the property is just steps from the beach and about 3 miles from downtown Fort Lauderdale. In addition to its shore-side setting, the hotel also boasts the AWAY Spa and a 1,360-square-foot fitness center. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort

    2.76 miles away

    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    This Westin in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, has aced its color scheme – the lobby, beach chaises and even the exterior siding are done in calming blue and white hues. The soothing color palette carries into the guest rooms, which feature amenities like Heavenly Beds, flat-screen TVs and wooden furnishings. Even traveler complaints – like too few balconies – are overshadowed by praise for the friendly hotel staff. But if you're looking for privacy, the room's revealing slate bathroom doors are enough to reconsider. The hotel makes up for this oversight with its 6,500-square-foot Heavenly Spa by Westin, two on-site restaurants, an outdoor pool overlooking the ocean and a bridge connecting patrons directly to the beach. The resort's location – just south of the romantic Bonnet House along Fort Lauderdale Beach – makes it a convenient choice for sun-seekers and sightseers alike. And because this hotel is part of the Marriott hotel family, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points here.

    Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina

    2.17 miles away

    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Its ultra-convenient location at the edge of the Intracoastal Waterway makes the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina a popular rest stop for cruise-liner crowds and business travelers. This Hilton is also 4 miles from Fort Lauderdale Beach (which can be reached by the hotel's complimentary beach shuttle), a plus for recent visitors who added a few extra days to their trip to enjoy the city. Past guests recommend asking for a room with a marina view to avoid noise from the 17th Street Causeway. However, even with the scenic views, guests are disappointed with the poor conditions of the rooms that are in need of some upgrades (as well as a good cleaning). While here, visitors are also welcome to take advantage of the hotel pool and various dining options. Nanking, the hotel's sushi restaurant, was especially popular with prior travelers. And if you're a Hilton Honors member, you can earn or use points here.

    B Ocean Resort

    2.73 miles away

    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Lauded by guests for its convenient location and laid-back atmosphere, B Ocean Resort sits 6 miles from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Sun-seekers can stake their umbrellas in the sand along the property's private beach or claim a spot along two outdoor swimming pools. Meanwhile, those craving more activity can work up a sweat at the on-site 24-hour fitness center before indulging in flavorful Mexican fare (including Snapper Ceviche and homemade guacamole) served at Dos Caminos or lighter American and Caribbean inspired dishes at the Beach Bar & Grill. If you came to Fort Lauderdale to explore all the city has to offer, the hotel's Guest Services Desk can point you toward a myriad of activities, including shopping, sailing, scuba diving, jet skiing and more. When you're ready to turn in for the day, you'll find guest rooms and suites outfitted with complimentary Wi-Fi access, minifridges, flat-screen TVs and a calming blue and white color scheme. Past guests describe the rooms as stylish and highlight the impressive views overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, the Intracoastal waterway or the city skyline as a compelling reason to plan a future stay.

    Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel

    1.96 miles away

    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    Like its name suggests, this hotel caters to the cruise crowd with its prime location near the Fort Lauderdale cruise terminal. According to those who have stayed here, the location can't be beat. However, high room rates combined with pricey extras (like $25 per day self-parking and daily Wi-Fi fees that range between $9.95 and $13.95) earn this Renaissance property fairly tepid reviews from recent visitors. Each accommodation comes equipped with signature Revive bedding, flat-screen TVs and deluxe bath products. Additionally, visitors will find an outdoor pool, a fitness center and Bistro 17 and R Lounge, which serve American fare. Cruisers in particular really appreciate the cruise port shuttle available to guests. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can use or earn reward points here.

    The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale

    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    $40 Nightly Resort Fee
    5.0-star Hotel Class
    5.0-star Hotel Class
    $40 Nightly Resort Fee
    The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale does not disappoint. The hotel's modern decor is accented with art deco touches, the lobby is crafted out of gorgeous marble and private balconies adjoin all guest rooms and suites. Along with the ocean or Intracoastal Waterway views, rooms boast leather furniture, flat-screen TVs and spacious marble bathrooms. Some travelers recommend requesting rooms with ocean vistas, as Intracoastal Waterway-facing rooms are situated next to a building with air conditioning units that can be loud and unsightly. Guests can't quite determine what they like most about this hotel, praising the Ritz's posh perks like a fitness center that overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway, an 8,500-square-foot spa and a heated infinity pool with poolside service. But there are two points all reviewers seem to agree on: Both the beachfront Fort Lauderdale, Florida, location and the outstanding service receive high marks across the board. However, keep in mind that all guests are charged a daily $40 resort fee. To offset this extra charge, Marriott Bonvoy members use points to cover their stays.

    • Free WiFi

    The Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort, as its name suggests, sits alongside Fort Lauderdale, Florida's beach – so gorgeous ocean views abound. But that's not the only reason people like staying here. Although this Hilton outpost's customer service receives mixed reviews, the property is praised for its comfortable accommodations, which manage to remain peaceful despite its central location along the bustling promenade. Suites get high marks for their spaciousness, as well as the excellent views of the Atlantic Ocean and the Fort Lauderdale skyline. The $36 daily resort fee covers additional perks like in-room Wi-Fi access, morning beach yoga classes and use of two beach chairs. While staying here, guests have access to three in-house restaurants and a spa. Travelers can opt for a treatment outdoors, then mozy on over to S3's trendy outdoor patio for specialty sushi rolls or the adults-only BalQony lounge for chic poolside bites and cocktails. And thanks to the resort's brand ties, Hilton Honors members can enjoy perks and privileges and collect points when staying here.

    The Pillars Hotel

    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4.0-star Hotel Class
    4.0-star Hotel Class

    It's fairly easy to see why this hotel is a favorite among romance-seekers. Most who have stayed at The Pillars Hotel feel as though they've uncovered a hidden gem. To them, this elegant boutique does just about everything rightparticularly when it comes to addressing guests' needs. Looking at the website, you'd think the poolside rooms would have the most coveted beds, but we suggest reserving a King Courtyard Deluxe on the hotel's front side, which boasts a separate entrance and a private courtyard. The hotel's tasty restaurant, Secret Garden, plates delicious Moroccan-inspired cuisine. Keep in mind that The Pillars Hotel faces inward to Fort Lauderdale's Coral Bay, not the Atlantic Ocean, meaning that you won't fall asleep to the sound of the surf. However, there's a water taxi that will shuttle you from the hotel's marina to other spots along the Intercoastal Waterway.

    Occupying 16 acres of prime beachfront in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, this resort is popular with vacationers. Activities and amenities abound at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa: Guests can enjoy a treatment in the 22,000-square-foot spa, break a sweat at the expansive gym, or bask in the sun in a lounge chair on the private beach or by one of two pools. And because of their coastal location, this Marriott outpost's restaurants feature menus full of fresh seafood. Many also offer outdoor dining with views of the ocean. When it's time to rest, guests will find rooms are bright with white and beige decor and come outfitted with coffee makers, flat-screen TVs and minibars. (Opt for a room with a view or a suite for floor-to-ceiling windows that offer impressive panoramas of the ocean or Intracoastal Waterway.) Past visitors were complimentary of the resort's picturesque location, comfortable accommodations and hospitable staff, adding that the customer service was simply outstanding. The property is also less than 5 miles northeast of Port Everglades, the city's cruise ship port, so it's a popular spot for cruisers traveling in and out of Fort Lauderdale.
