Fort Lauderdale, on the southeast coast of Florida, is famous for its beaches, arts and culture. The oceanside highway is lined with outdoor restaurants, bars, boutiques and luxury hotels – meaning there is always something to do in this part of the Sunshine State, and a truly dizzying array of places to stay. Here’s our guide to the best holiday apartments in Fort Lauderdale.
Newly redesigned and renovated, the Residence Inn allows guests to enjoy a truly homely level of comfort and convenience. All suites have fully equipped kitchens, as well as private balconies with various enticing views. With an outdoor pool, bike rentals, a private boating dock and excellent on-site restaurant, Oria, these apartments are sure to keep you occupied.
A luxury spot offering deluxe accommodation and superior service, the Ocean Beach Club Hotel is an excellent choice. Within walking distance of the beach, local restaurants, bars, a mall and a range of golf and sports facilities, it’s an ideal location for those who like to explore. There’s also an outdoor heated pool (perfect for that daily dose of vitamin D), and rooms are furnished with microwaves, irons, fridges, coffeemakers, safes and LED TVs.
Located near the beach with an on-site restaurant and bar, you won’t need to venture far from Gallery Condos. A swimming pool, fitness center, business center and concierge services ensure you have access to everything you’re likely to need, while towels, robes and linens are provided in each room (there are even laundry facilities, so you can pack light). It’s close to the marina, too, if you fancy a leisurely evening stroll and a nightcap at one of the local bars.
With breathtaking views and recently renovated rooms and facilities, the Conrad Fort Lauderdale’s suites and residences make an ideal base for your trip. The Conrad has four on-site restaurants – collectively offering everything from seafood to hand-crafted cocktails, with a generous helping of panoramic Atlantic Ocean views – but if leaving your suite seems like too much effort, make use of your very own stylish kitchen or the indulgent in-suite service.
Tranquilo is a charming, boutique hotel nestled between the ocean and the Intracoastal Waterway. With a variety of room types available, the hotel is able to accommodate both long and short-term stays. With five pools, laundry facilities and free wifi, you’re sure to enjoy your time here no matter how long you stay. The hotel also has a water taxi, should you want to take a trip Downtown to explore.
Those in search of uninterrupted sun and relaxation head for the Atlantic Hotel & Spa. A rooftop pool and terrace with ocean views are the main attractions, but don’t miss out on the excellent on-site restaurant and bar. Cook up some home comforts in your suite’s kitchen, or take advantage of the hotel’s complimentary beach cruisers and its spa’s wide variety of relaxing treatments.
