Here’s a right regal Fort Lauderdale base that won’t put a dent in your funds. You’re within a short walk of the beach, but chances are you’ll do little more than hang out on the sundeck sipping a Cuba Libre or chilling in a cabana – if, that is, you can tear yourself away from the whirlpool tub in your room. Just make sure you spend plenty of time working on your tan poolside on a lounger to gain the rich Floridian glow that marks out the coolest locals.
