The white sand, blue skies and crystal-clear warm water are reasons enough to visit Fort Lauderdale – yet there is so much more to this city. With shopping, cultural attractions, beaches and everglades, a visit to this Florida destination can be as laid-back or as busy as you want it to be. If you’re looking for unique accommodation, here are our favorite boutique hotels in Fort Lauderdale – bookable on Culture Trip.

Located in Hollywood Beach, the Caribbean Resort has the perfect atmosphere for a relaxed holiday. It’s a secluded oasis in a busy town, and the rooms are modern and luxurious – and just steps from the beach. The on-site Tiki Bar offers live entertainment and cocktails, and there are outdoor grills for when you fancy a relaxed evening barbecue. If you want to venture out, the historic boardwalk is nearby with its unique shops, beachfront restaurants and bars.

2. Deluxe Inn

Close to the station and airport, the Deluxe Inn at Dania Beach is in an ideal location for those who are coming for a short stay or may need to travel. It’s close to the beach, Snyder Park, the Wiener Museum of Decorative Arts and Sheridan Square shopping center, so you’re sure to spend more time out of the hotel than in. However, when you return there are comfortable beds, a fridge, a walk-in shower and a bath to soothe your aching muscles after a long day of exploring.

3. 925 Ocean Boutique Hotel

Steps away from the beach at the heart of Deerfield Beach entertainment area, the hotel is within walking distance of local attractions such as Deerfield Beach International Fishing Pier, restaurants, shopping, nightlife and family activities. Attention to detail is apparent in each room and area, and there’s plenty of room options – including studios with full kitchens, hotel-style rooms with kitchenettes and one-bedroom apartments with a full kitchen, living room and bathroom.
