“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012 via mobile

This hotel is exactly what you would expect from Ritz brand. Outstanding service, oversized, luxurious rooms and fantastic property and location. Our room was on the 7th floor which was especially nice because it is pool level and we had a large private patio which led directly to pool and faced the ocean, beautiful! We ordered a delicious mahgarita pizza by the pool, way better than your typical hotel poolside fare,YUM! This Ritz did not disappoint! Would highly recommend

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.

Room Tip: Ocean front high floor!

My wife and I were stuck in Fort Lauderdale when we missed our connecting flight due to a mechancial issue with our plane. This was my first time in Fort Lauderdale, and when I saw the strip i felt like i was at the Jersey Shore. But once i stepped foot in the lobby I knew i came to the right place. The front desk was extremely helpful in helping us check-in and our room was upgraded. Breakfast buffent and the dinner were amazing. The hotel is located right on the strip so a short walk to the beach and the pool was very nice as well. The Spa looked great but we didnt have a chance to enjoy it. I would recommend the hotel for living up to the Ritz Carlton name.

The hotel was excellent, nice rooms, nice attractions and facilities. A little higher for the off-season due to a Convention of the AAA. Excellent location, nice restaurants, excellent bed and good personnel attitude. Will go back with a lower pricing next year.

Room Tip: High Floors at the South have the best ocean view.

Loved this hotel. Just returned from a 3-day business trip. Location is great...right across the street from the beach...many restaurants and bars to walk to from here. People seem very happy to be working here. Cab ride from the airport is just over $20. Room is gorgeous...white, bright, spacious, lovely. King-sized bed was VERY comfortable. Free bottles of water in the room were a nice touch. Loved having all the controls for lights, tv, everything right on the phone. Food for the conference I attended was delicious. Loved the views on the balconies outside the meeting rooms.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean view!

My daughter's wedding and next-day brunch could not have been more beautiful, thanks to this fabulous hotel and the service we and all of our guests received, whether the stay was one night or for some as many as four nights. From the moment you drive up the circular driveway, to the moment you drive away, you'll receive the traditional and expected "Ritz" treatment. The food, service, sleeping accommodations, location, and amenities are all 5-star! If you're looking for a luxurious experience, this hotel is for you!

Room Tip: Each room has its own special appointments, but nothing compares to one with an ocean view!

Loved this hotel. Great service, fantastic rooms and helpful staff. I would never go to Florida under any circumstance, with the exception of work, so having to go there and being able to stay at the Ritz made my experience enjoyable.
