The hotel is a landmark of service in America. I stayed for 2 nights in early November for a work annual meeting. The weather in Ft Lauderdale is terrific at that time of year. The days are low eighties and evenings are in the mid sixties.
With a location on across the street from the beach, it's an ideal place for a vacation or just a few days of relaxation. The rooms are nice and fairly up to date. I had a spacious ocean view room that had a great view of the pool, ocean, and sunrise.
Hotel staff is very helpful and will go out of their way to help you, even early in the morning!
There are busy boardwalk type restaurants shops and bars right as you step outside. Elbo Room, a famous dive bar is just around the corner. Coconuts restaurant is just around the corner. Read my separate review for that great seafood place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale infuses the Gold Coast with casual luxury as the city's first and only AAA Five Diamond hotel. The 24-story, dramatically tiered and glass walled structure has sweeping curves that are reminiscent of a luxury liner. Design elements recall the 1940's, with artwork that includes playful murals inspired by French artist Jean Cocteau and a 13-foot high mural of a seascape inspired by the 1880 painting, "King Neptune and His Horses." The property features 192 guest rooms and suites; a 2,200 square foot Club Lounge, 24,000 square feet of light-filled meeting space; a 29,000 square foot oceanfront sundeck with an infinity pool and private cabanas; destination Spa with an organic and active-botanical treatment menu and a water-view fitness center. Four dining and entertainment options include the new Via Luna Italian grill with seating indoors or al fresco on an oceanfront patio, the dramatic oceanfront Via Luna Bar, a private Wine Room with a 5,000 bottle wine cellar and a seventh floor Poolside Cafe with commanding ocean views. ... more less
