    The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1895 reviewsTripAdvisor (1895)

    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 also 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 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. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn and use points by staying here.

    The Atlantic Hotel & Spa
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2456 reviewsTripAdvisor (2456)
    Free WiFi

    Located right on Fort Lauderdale's beach, the lemon-yellow (oddly shaped) Atlantic Hotel & Spa is all about the views. Along with balconies facing the ocean or city, another guest favorite is the kitchenette – stocked with a minifridge, a two-burner stove and a microwave – that comes with each room. In addition to the well-equipped accommodations, recent guests also praise the hotel's efficient and amicable staff. After visitors get their fill of staring at miles of sand and surf (if that's even possible), they can seek rejuvenation at the property's 24-hour fitness center and spa or take a dip in the waterfront pool. Or, guests can simply soak up the sun at the beach, which is merely steps away. However, be prepared to pay. Daily parking fees at this Preferred Lifestyle outpost are steep, but most guests say the location is completely worth the splurge. To cut costs, iPrefer loyalty program members can use points while staying here.

    Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2791 reviewsTripAdvisor (2791)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    Sandwiched between the Stranahan River and the beach, Lago Mar Beach Resort & Club has a primo locale away from the chaos of the strip. Rooms here are filled with cushy, Tommy Bahama-style furnishings, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and complimentary high-speed internet access. Guests suggest splurging on an oceanfront suite to enjoy the breathtaking views. Meanwhile, the resort's private stretch of shoreline is popular for its chaise lounges and hammocks, as well as its activities available to children. After a long day spent in the sand and the sun, refresh your skin with a treatment at the on-site spa. And when you start to feel peckish, grab a bite at one of the four on-site dining options. Cruisers stand to benefit from this resort's location, being less than 3 miles from Port Everglades and 7 miles from Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport. Keep in mind that you'll need a car to reach most destinations though.

    Pelican Grand Beach Resort, A Noble House Resort
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 4559 reviewsTripAdvisor (4559)
    Free WiFi

    Located about a mile north of the Fort Lauderdale Beach strip along the Atlantic Ocean, the Pelican Grand Beach Resort, A Noble House Resort has quietly removed itself from the cruise ship hubbub to craft a more peaceful, Victorian-esque ambiance. Amenities like the wraparound veranda – decked out with classic rocking chairs – and the old-fashioned ice cream parlor are hits with guests. This member of the Noble House hotel group gets high praise for its family-friendliness too; the little ones are sure to love the lazy river, pool and beach, as well as the Funky Fish Ocean Camp (charges apply). As for dining, head to OCEAN2000 for seafood and steaks with a side of ocean views. When it's time to bed down, rooms feature city or ocean vistas, minifridges, coffee makers and, in some rooms, furnished balconies. Plus, the daily $30 resort fee includes the cost of internet access. You'll find this Fort Lauderdale resort on North Ocean Boulevard, less than 2 miles from the Bonnet House and about 9 miles northeast of the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport.

    Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 6054 reviewsTripAdvisor (6054)
    Free WiFi

    The Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort is, as its name suggests, sits alongside Fort Lauderdale's beach – so gorgeous ocean views abound. But that's not the only reason people like staying here. This Hilton outpost is praised for its spectacular customer service and 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. While staying here, guests have access to the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort's three in-house restaurants and 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. Typical amenities are covered by the $35 daily resort fee, which some recent guests took issue with. And thanks to the resort's brand ties, Hilton Honors members can enjoy perks and privileges or collect points when staying here.

    W Fort Lauderdale
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 545 reviewsTripAdvisor (545)

    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.

    Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3493 reviewsTripAdvisor (3493)
    Free WiFi

    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. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can earn or use points by choosing to stay here.

    The Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 473 reviewsTripAdvisor (473)

    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.

    Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach
    Fort Lauderdale, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 3395 reviewsTripAdvisor (3395)
    Free WiFi

    Located down the street from the Bonnet House and just a few steps from the beach, this ultra-modern resort in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, receives high praise from travelers for its picturesque ocean views. But past visitors had mixed feelings about the property's decor: Some found the trendy neon touches (especially in the lobby) to be a bit over the top, while others said the atmosphere was tasteful and unique. The Sonesta Fort Lauderdale Beach's facilites also feature an outdoor pool, a fitness center and the highly acclaimed Bistro, which serves casual American fare. When it's time to sleep, recent guests were pleased that rooms come stocked with minifridges, flat-screen TVs, upscale bath amenities and Keurig coffee makers. However, for complimentary services like in-room Wi-Fi access and two welcome drinks, guests are charged a $20 (plus tax) daily resort fee.

    Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa
    Pompano Beach, FL
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4 based on 1079 reviewsTripAdvisor (1079)

    Situated in Pompano Beach, Florida, about halfway between Boca Raton and Fort Lauderdale near the Hillsboro Inlet Lighthouse, the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort & Spa caters to vacationers and business travelers looking for a quiet getaway. The property boasts an outdoor pool, a whirlpool and a full-service spa. For business travelers, the resort offers two meeting rooms, with the largest venue able to accommodate up to 300 people. Whether traveling for business or for pleasure, most guests say the resort's proximity to uncongested beaches and excellent customer service were the highlights of their trip. Guests were just as complimentary of the great condition of the rooms, all of which feature balconies that overlook the resort grounds or ocean, as well as flat-screen TVs, minifridges and marble bathrooms with Bath & Body Works toiletries. Some recent travelers felt slighted by fees for parking and Wi-Fi, but as part of the Marriott brand, members of the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program can earn or use points here.
