We were there attending the boat show. We had booked an upgraded King room 5 months ahead and when arrived we were shown to a room tucked into a corner wall- when we complained we were moved to another room overlooking a LOUD air conditioner/generator on the roof below. Expecting 5 star service we were disappointed to find an uncomfortable... More

Giving this Ritz location 5 stars does not do it justice. We find every excuse possible to hop on a plane and come to this location for sun and fun. The staff makes it worth every trip. The pool bar and staff are just top notch. We have been traveling with the kids since they were little - and you... More

The Fort Lauderdale Ritz is a rebranded former St Regis that used to be something else...The result is a generic mash of room sizes and options on the Strip in Fort Lauderdale. The check in process is most laborious as both the staff and the guests seem new to the hotel business--there are a large variety of travel and credit... More

We stayed twice during a recent Florida trip because we flew in and out of FLL airport which is just minutes away. This hotel is right on the strip across from the beach - right in the thick of it. It's kind or a rowdy party area, so this place was a real respite from the clubs and tourists crowding... More

Did not stay at the Ritz but stopped in for lunch on the 7th floor pool bar for an unexpected affordable lunch. The food and service was great and the view was spectacular. Amazingly affordable prices. Great drinks and nice selection for lunch. Wonderful service. Would go back for lunch again on our next visit. Almost forgot....they make their own... More

spent a week here; stayed on the Club Level. Can't say enough about the outstanding service both at the Club and throughout the hotel. The fitness Area was clean and well equipped with new machines; great view too. All food that we tried was healthy and delicious. Definitely, the best hotel in Fort Lauderdale.

This is a great hotel on the beach. The rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The staff are friendly and helpful generally. The food in the restaurant is good. The facilities are good (pool, gym etc). The beach is just across the street. I would recommend this hotel.

On the upside, this property is right across the street from the beach. The service was very good for the most part, except around checkout. It just didn't feel like it was great value, and considering we had a conference rate, I would have been very upset to pay the prevailing BAR. Upon check in, I enquired about a paid... More

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
