The Ritz-Carlton, Fort Lauderdale
Few hotels measure up to the Ritz-Carlton, and its Fort Lauderdale property is as luxurious as they come: a beachfront beauty in the yachting capital of the world. Guest rooms and suites have ocean or Intracoastal Waterway views. Decor is as zingy-fresh as toothpaste. And life’s a beach with a spa treatment on the sand, perhaps, before punchy cocktails and seafood at the Burlock Coast restaurant. End the night on your balcony overlooking the water, utterly in love.
